IGT's DoubleDown Casino Unleashes Free-to-Play Bingo For Facebook Fans





LAS VEGAS, Sept. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  International Game Technology (NYSE: IGT), the global leader in driving technology innovations in the gaming industry, today announced the addition of Bingo to its suite of casino games in the DoubleDown Casino. Starting today, players can visit www.doubledowncasino.com to get started.   

The DoubleDown Free-to-Play Bingo game is not your traditional Bingo game. Players can now compete in a fun, flexible, social game with friends on Facebook or try to beat their own personal Bingo bests.

Game highlights include:

  • Multiple speeds of play to accommodate all skill levels
  • Players' ability to take control and customize their own dauber
  • Three themed rooms including Art Deco, Fashionista or High Orbit, which are available to players at any time without having to unlock new games
  • Both automatic and manual play options

"This is an entirely unique Bingo experience. Players will be able to select customized playing cards daubers, and themed rooms. And unlike other social Bingo sites, every game is unlocked," said Robert Melendres, IGT executive vice president of emerging businesses. "Whether you're an experienced Bingo player or new to the game, you'll find the ticket to fun right here where Bingo joins an entire suite of social play already available at the DoubleDown Casino."

Bingo joins DoubleDown Casino's expansive casino-style games like Texas Hold'Em Poker as well as slot machine games that include some of IGT's most iconic land-based slot titles such as Cleopatra® and Da Vinci Diamonds®. DoubleDown Casino offers more than 25 games and focuses on fun and dynamic game mechanics by adding a social twist to traditional casino-style experiences.
