London-based Social Games studio ‘iwi’ today announced the launch of their new game: Jackpotjoy Slots. Jackpotjoy Slots is a free to play social game on Facebook, based on a classic Slot mechanic, with a strong real-time social interaction component.
Jackpotjoy Slots launches with 10 different themed slot games, each with its own unique characters and bonus rounds.
“We’re excited to be bringing this great gaming content to Facebook,” explains Tom Newton (Head of iwi), “as a part of our efforts to help Jackpotjoy find new audiences around the world.”
The result is players unlock new slot themes, bonus games, and wager amounts as they progress through the game. Social features include real-time chat in full screen mode, allowing players to talk, interact and share coins with one another during play.
For the more competitive players, there are two catalogues of achievements to complete: a badge collection centred on individual games, and a trophy collection for game-wide achievements. There are also two leader boards to scale: one for friends only, and another for players from all over the world.
Jackpotjoy Slots extends the catalogue of iwi games on Facebook which already includes SuperFun Town, a sim-style city building game, and Bingo .net, a popular 75-ball bingo game.
iwi is part of the Gamesys Group of companies which includes jackpotjoy.com the UK’s leading online instant win and bingo entertainment brand. Jackpotjoy Slots brings the fun and excitement of the Jackpotjoy suite of games over to Facebook in a free to play environment. “This fits with the Gamesys strategy” explains Lee Fenton (COO of Gamesys Group) “to extend the Jackpotjoy brand and give players across the world the opportunity to play our suite of games and chat for free on the most popular social network.”
