Wednesday August 13, 2014 : NEW AUSSIE SOCIAL CASINO LAUNCHED
Sydney-based Royal Wins studios introduce Mojikan’s Kash Karnival.
Following an extensive research and testing program during 2013, Sydney-based development studio Royal Wins has launched a free-to-play, ‘hybrid’ skill plus casino social and wagering games under the Mojikan’s Kash Karnival brand. Royal Wins CEO Robert Fong, CEO said this week that the new casino will initially carry four unique games split evenly between skill and the traditional luck-based casino games, although all games have elements of both skill and random number-generated outcomes.
“We believe that social games players should be rewarded for their skill, while more traditional casino games players are often served up a mediocre in-game experience. Our new ‘hybrid’ games address both these issues, by rewarding players for their skill, and by bringing new styles of game mechanics and skill-based elements into what, up until now, has only been very basic, uninteresting traditional slots and casino games,” Fong said.
Games are accessed through the Kash Karnival’s graphically rich ‘Royal Hub’ where players are addressed as ‘patrons' and have the ability to interact with a wide range of avatar characters and features.
From the Royal Hub, players can explore either the ‘Skill District' or ‘Adventure Casino' to enjoy games and work their way up the leader board to eventually become members of the ‘Royal Family, and ultimately, Kash King or Kash Queen.
The launch release on Facebook aims to build on the game's over 10,000-player early adopter base, and future plans include the release of additional versions across other platforms including tablet and mobile.
Fong says that Royal Wins recently closed its first round of funding with A$2 million and is staffed by top Australian game developers with experience at studios like Aristocrat, IGT, Konami and NextGen Gaming.
The company has plans to release a ‘real money’ version of its casino at the end of 2014.
