Agreement inked with Jacobs Entertainment Inc.
 
IGT social gaming casino DoubleDown's free-to-play app will be available soon for players on Jacobs Entertainment Inc. websites in Colorado and Nevada, the group announced Monday.
 
The application will be hosted on the websites of five Jacobs Entertainment Inc. venues.
 
DoubleDown Casino enables Jacobs Entertainment Inc. to provide its players with casino style game play online, while remaining connected with the Jacobs brand. Players will have access to the full DoubleDown Casino roster of games including Da Vinci Diamonds and Cleopatra slots, as well as multi-player poker.
 
Also slated to arrive within the next few months on the DoubleDown Casino are several well-known IGT slots that are proven player favourites, a company spokesman revealed.
 
"What we are offering Jacobs is the chance to provide their players with a full-service casino style gaming experience while being able to see all the offerings that Jacobs also has to offer," said Eric Tom, executive vice president of global sales at IGT. "This also allows the player to try out and enjoy free-to-play slots and multiplayer poker from the comfort of home."
 
Visitors who select Jacobs run websites, including the Gold Dust West Reno, Gold Dust West Carson City, Gold Dust West Elko, The Gilpin Casino and The Lodge will have the opportunity to participate in online social game play, which includes some of IGT's top performing slot titles.
 
Steve Roark, president of Jacobs Entertainment Inc. said: "We are constantly looking for new ways to engage our players. The partnership with DoubleDown Casino allows us to interact and reach out to our customers in fresh and appealing ways. For us, it's a win-win solution."
 
First-time users of the app will receive $1 million in virtual chips to kick start start their free-play action.
