SGN‘s first foray into mobile social gaming, MiniTycoon Casino for the iPhone, has acquired 600,000 users and become the top social game in the App Store. SGN says that MiniTycoon casino players have banked nearly 300 billion chips, sent over 400,000 virtual gifts, and collectively logged over 8 years worth of play time since the game’s launch in November. SGN is announcing these stats alongside the launch of a holiday-themed content update for the game. MiniTycoon Casino is a management-style game where users attempt to create a successful casino business.
While there are plenty of casino-themed games on Facebook, SGN says that MiniTyccon Casino is the first casino-themed social game available for iPhone. The game emphasizes decorating your casino so that you’ll attract lots of guests to gambling games like roulette, card tables, and slots. MiniTycoon Casino features integration with both Facebook and Twitter, so users can invite friends through either social network or post their in-game achievements.
MiniTycoon Casino also features support for Apple’s Game Center, including leaderboards, social connections, and the ability to post in-game achievements for others to see. New virtual goods including the holiday-themed content update include holiday reel slots, video poker, blackjack, roulette, and holiday decorations like snowmen, pine trees, and themed floors and wallpapers. MiniTycoon Casino is available for free download from the App Store and monetizes through in-app transactions.
