IGT’s DoubleDown Casino Bets On PlayPhone

PlayPhone®, Inc., a global leader in mobile social gaming, and International Game Technology (NYSE: IGT) a global leader in gaming systems technology, today announced that the wildly popular DoubleDown Casino will be available on PlayPhone’s global mobile social gaming network this summer. PlayPhone powers game stores for leading worldwide carriers and unites a global gaming community across multiple platforms.

“Success in today’s mobile gaming environment is about pairing explosive content with an irresistible community of other players,” John Clelland, vice president of global marketing for IGT Interactive Group. “IGT therefore looks for the widest possible distribution and the easiest-to-use technology to attract and retain customers. PlayPhone’s carrier relationships, world-class social features and direct carrier payments will entice millions of new subscribers to experience the best Vegas casino environment outside the Strip.”

With more than six million active monthly players, DoubleDown Casino is the world's largest free-to-play social casino. Available on Facebook and mobile devices, DoubleDown Casino provides an authentic Vegas casino gaming experience with more than 30 different slot games, including popular slot titles like Siberian Storm®, Wolf Run® and Cleopatra®; as well as multi-player poker, Game King™ video poker, roulette, Blackjack, tournaments and everyone’s favorite: Bingo.

“PlayPhone is excited to partner with DoubleDown Casino to bring their immensely popular social casino games to our worldwide mobile gaming network,” said Anders Evju, chief marketing officer for PlayPhone. “The deal also helps us fulfill our commitment to carriers and other developers – by bringing back revenue carriers have lost to app stores and by multiplying and enriching the number of unique opportunities for the system to cross-promote individual games.”

With partners like Verizon (NYSE: VZ), AT&T (NYSE:T) and Claro, PlayPhone’s games stores are unparalleled in their ability to use social features to expose the right game to the right gamer at the right time. PlayPhone enables players to share game invites, challenges, recommendations, achievements, rankings, brags and more, so players always know the games their friends are playing. Also, PlayPhone’s direct carrier billing makes it easy for players to purchase premium games or make in-game purchases without inputting a credit card—player purchases simply appear on the player’s phone bill.
