Tuesday March 5, 2013 : SOCIAL BINGO FROM BIG FISH
 
New app is iOS-friendly
 
Big Fish Games, a primarily casual games developer, has launched a new social bingo app titled Big Fish Bingo on the iOS platform suitable for iPhones, iPads and iPod.
 
Big Fish Bingo is a mobile-social bingo game, where players choose to play between one to four simultaneous bingo cards. Although players will find a rewarding bingo experience playing on their own, team cooperation through a team card, and competition with other teams through power-ups, encourages social interaction and sets this game apart from other mobile bingo games on the market.
 
Players can make friends and form rivalries as they unlock new tables and powerful abilities. They can help each other, or try to take down other teams, by using power-ups with ranging effects, from marking squares on teammates' cards to sending blocks that can stop other teams from completing bingos.
 
Power-ups aren't random – players strategically pick these to use each round, and coordinate with their teams to create devastating combos.
 
The app was developed by Big Fish's talented Seattle team, which was also responsible for the company's popular social casino product. It is available free-of-charge through the iTunes store.
 
“Individual players can succeed on their own but the best rewards and real excitement comes from winning with your team,” said Carey DiJulio, vice-president and GM for Big Fish Casino and Big Fish Bingo.
 
“Big Fish Bingo brings the same quality polish and social gameplay that people are familiar with and have come to expect from Big Fish Casino.”
