Wednesday October 30,2013 : SOCIAL GAME DEVELOPER TO ENTER REAL-MONEY ONLINE GAMBLING SECTOR
Bee Cave Games to launch three new slot games through its existing Blackjack Casino brand.
Social gambling developer Bee Cave Games is to enter the real-money sector with three new online slots, reports the publication Venturebeat.
Three multi-player slots titles — Creatures of Wonder, Treasure of the Tides, and Wilderness Jackpot — will join the company’s existing Blackjack Casino title, which is accessible through Facebook and mobile channels.
Jeremy Strauser, COO at Bee Cave, told Venturebeat that players entering the new games will be matched up with up to four other live gamers. The success of those people will then spill over into the other players' game, so that everyone feels more connected.
“As far as we can tell, no one else does this in social-casino games,” said Strauser. “We think this is important to make people feel like they are really on a casino floor.”
The new Bee Cave games have been through the independent testing mill at Gaming Labs International, which confirmed that Bee Cave’s random-number generator within its slots titles and the shuffle program in its blackjack game meet Las Vegas-level standards.
Strauser also revealed that his company is working with online-gambling platform Betable to offer real-money gaming in the U.K. Betable will handle the financial transactions and legal issues of operating an online casino, enabling Bee Cave to focus on making games.
