Andrew Pascal, the founder and CEO of PLAYSTUDIOS, a social and mobile casino game developer, recently told the press that he wanted to embrace innovation, particularly in slot games.
According to the CEO, people have a misunderstanding about what these games are. They aren’t just spinning a bunch of wheels in the hopes of winning or losing. Pascal said that slot machines are a means of progression. It is the mechanic with which the player interacts that enables the player to do so many other things.
He also stated that social casino games have a meta layer. Players may enter a casino and begin playing a game, but they will then be presented with a series of challenges that encourage them to try other games, and as they do, the company will monitor their progress and reward them progressively. The challenges are based on the Royal Caribbean cruise line’s itinerary.
PLAYSTUDIOS collaborated with the all-new Clubhouse feature for the award-winning myVEGAS Slots app. Clubhouse, the app’s most significant social expansion to date, allows players to converse, collaborate, and complete missions in order to unlock exclusive chip rewards. With myVEGAS product, which they built on Facebook, players could select from a variety of different slot games to play.
Players will notice that they are accumulating attributes for a specific resort as they progress through the game. So, for example, if a player is playing at the Mirage, they will be congratulated because they have collected the volcano, the porte-cochere, the marquee, and finally the tower.
When the player completes the Mirage collection, they will be transported to this virtual Strip, where the Mirage, their own mini-version of the Mirage, will appear. The more people who play the various slot games, the more resorts will be able to build and populate their own virtual Strip.
Social casinos and free-to-play games, according to the founder, must also be revolutionary. Because of the market’s competitiveness. The developer should do advancements to truly differentiate the company and keep things interesting and unique. Furthermore, the social casino and free-to-play game ecosystem foster and encourage innovation and dynamism.
