Monday May 6,2013 : LATEST MGM RESORT-THEMED SLOT LAUNCHED ON MYVEGAS APP
 
myVEGAS boasts over 3 million players
 
Game development company PlayStudios myVEGAS social network portfolio has been augmented with a new MGM-resort themed slot titled Mirage.
 
The slot-style game features a lush tropical oasis and playful characters inspired by Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage Hotel & Casino.
 
Mirage joins the series of ten social casino games developed by PlayStudios that include the most recently launched Luxor God of Odds and a Jules Verne-inspired Around the World in 80 Plays.
 
“Our audience has grown to over three million active players in recent months due to our focus on high quality gaming and bringing authentic branded experiences into myVEGAS. Mirage is the latest game to exemplify our team’s dedication to developing engaging experiences with leading luxury brands like The Mirage Hotel & Casino,” said Andrew Pascal, founder, president and chief executive officer of PlayStudios.
 
“Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage is dedicated to awareness and conservation of rare species. By bringing this destination to life in myVEGAS, we’re able to further engage millions of players online with our property in a way that’s both entertaining and rewarding,” added Tom Mikulich, Senior Vice President of Business Development at MGM Resorts International.
 
The game is a 30-line slot with 3×5 reels, featuring a cast of appealing animals and their trainers set in a tropical oasis. Players can accumulate bonus symbols that activate free spins and a Dolphin Jump Hi-Low Bonus. When activated, Daphne the Dolphin leaps from the turquoise waters of her habitat to pop a series of 5 suspended balloons. Each balloon contains a hidden number. Players pick Hi or Low before each leap to indicate the new number’s value relative to the previous one. Guessing correctly all five times will award players with an extra bonus and bejeweled trophies. During the game, players can also accrue status and myVEGAS collectibles.
