RocketPlay Partners With Zynga To Bring Social Sports-Betting To Facebook And Zynga.com

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- RocketPlay, creators of groundbreaking social sports-betting games, today announced that it has launched Sports Casino, a social sports-betting title on Facebook and Zynga.com. Along with the game's release, RocketPlay also announced its partnership with Zynga (NASDAQ: ZNGA), the world's leading provider of social game services, to bring Sports Casino to the 306 million monthly active players on Zynga's network of games across Facebook and other platforms. Sports Casino is available to play at www.zynga.com and on Facebook at http://apps.facebook.com/sportscasino/.

"Sports Casino delivers an authentic virtual sports-betting experience to social gaming and sports fans," said Mani Honigstein, CEO, RocketPlay. "We're thrilled to launch with Zynga's support, a company that has set the social gaming benchmark and will help us bring a great game to a wide range of players."

Sports Casino players enjoy an authentic Las Vegas-style sportsbook experience, placing virtual bets on global sports with real-time odds while enjoying integrated casino games such as video poker, slots, and blackjack. Players can enjoy in-game, real-time betting while competing with their friends – a perfect second-screen complement to watching live sports on television. Sports Casino arrives just in time for action-packed betting on professional and college football, baseball, and international soccer.

The game appeals to the highly sought-after male gamer demographic on Facebook, particularly as social betting games continue to grow in popularity. Though the game currently uses only virtual currency, RocketPlay has developed Sports Casino to take advantage of the rising importance of real-money gambling in the social space as opportunities arise and legal restrictions are eased.

The Zynga Platform is a social gaming platform designed to give players the most social and fun gaming experience wherever they play, while helping third-party developers of all sizes launch, promote, scale and grow their games and business.
