Pirate-themed adventure features a multi-player, social experience for award-winning myVEGAS Slots app
LAS VEGAS – With today’s casual gaming experience evolving toward more collaborative gameplay, award-winning mobile game developer PLAYSTUDIOS is unleashing King & Kraken – an innovative new social game for its flagship myVEGAS Slots app – upon its global family of players.
King & Kraken is a pirate-themed slots adventure that combines traditional virtual slot gaming with social quests and shared rewards, challenging players to compete in the “King’s Quest” and “Kraken’s Lair” missions as they navigate the high seas alongside sharks, mermaids, and the tentacles of the legendary Kraken. As players progress throughout the game, they earn opportunities to compete with and vanquish their enemies and share “treasure” – all while accruing loyalty points that can be exchanged for real-world rewards from a global collection of reward partners.
“King & Kraken is one of the most unique themes we have developed for myVEGAS Slots and one that immediately takes the player on an adventure,” explains Katie Bolich, the Company’s Co-Founder and Slot Studio head. “We want our players to be swept away by the design and embrace their roles as pirates on this seafaring voyage.
“This is the first truly social game that our team has developed. It’s a product of their collaborative spirit, and we are so happy to see it finally set sail.”
Adds Chief Operating Officer John Lin: “Our myVEGAS Slots players love competing, cooperating, and celebrating together. King & Kraken takes these experiences to another level with its entirely new real-time social gameplay. This innovative game speaks to the passion, commitment, and creativity of our design and development teams.”
myVEGAS Slots players will see King & Kraken in the lobby when they first open the app. myVEGAS Slots is available to download for free on iOS, Android, Kindle and Facebook. Fans can also follow the action and interact with the PLAYSTUDIOS team via the myVEGAS Facebook page.
