What happens in myVegas stays in myVegas
Online internet gambling might not be legalized yet, but Playstudios is hoping to bring the next best thing: a virtual recreation of Sin City itself in myVegas: the social casino game.
MyVegas aims to take the virtual casino experience and make it as authentic as possible. With a team of real-life casino game designers and a partnership with MGM Resorts International (owner of a large majority of all casinos on the Las Vegas strip), it seems like Playstudios is well on their way to realizing that goal.
Not only will players have the usual access of assorted casino games, ranging from slots to blackjack, but they’ll also be able to design their own personalized version of the Las Vegas strip in an isometric building minigame. Why go the real Vegas when you can just build your own?
Although, while we’re on that point, it looks like the time you spend in virtual Vegas could very well earn you a trip Nevada. Players can earn loyalty prizes for playing, and MGM is bringing the goods, including a trip to MGM brand, tickets to Cirque du Soleil, a dinner at Wolfgang Puck, and more.
In an interview with GamesBeat, Bill Hornbuckle, MGM Resorts International’s chief marketing officer, said, “We have actively watched the explosion of the social gaming landscape and evaluated the options for extending our brands through these increasingly important channels. In partnership with Playstudios, we have created a platform that will engage and entertain existing MGM Resorts customers, attract new ones, and allow us to strengthen our brands in a new and relevant fashion.”
Eager to take over virtual Vegas and earn your way toward some fantastic prizes? Social high rollers shouldn’t have to wait long: myVegas is currently in beta, and is set to release before the end of the summer.
