I guess it was only a matter of time. Are you bored with Farmville? Perhaps you would like to run your own virtual casino? The new Facebook social game released by the Golden Nugget Casino of Las Vegas gives players the opportunity to run a virtual casino, but not the type of “virtual” casinos we list here on Pokie Wins.
From Oliver Chiang on Forbes.com:
Golden Nugget Casino, one of Las Vegas’ oldest and most prominent casinos, has built the first casino-branded social game “Golden Nugget Vegas Casino.” Partner and game developer Last Legion Games made the announcement on Tuesday.
It’s a smart bet: a social game could be a natural way to extend the brand of a casino, and online gambling games like poker have been popular on Facebook…In “Golden Nugget Vegas Casino,” you play a casino owner in charge of customizing and running your own virtual establishment. You can choose to put in games like blackjack, video poker and roulette, or add furniture and decorations. You can also visit and play at other players’ casinos to level up your avatar, and collect virtual chips. (You can’t ever cash out for real money, however.)
It will be interesting to see if the Golden Nugget Casino’s Facebook game catches on with visitors. If you want to read more about the new Facebook casino game, read the full article at Forbes.com
