Video gaming device manufacturer Grand Vision Gaming (GVG) of Billings, MT, announced today the launch of “Fire and Ice: Evolution,” the social version of GVG’s popular real money slot game “Fire and Ice” on iOS and Android.
This is the first game to be published under a new creative partnership between Grand Vision Gaming and San Francisco based social mobile game developer Ruby Seven Studios. According to Tim Carson, one of GVG’s four partners and a 35-year gaming industry veteran, the partnership catapults Grand Vision Gaming into the online social game world in a big way by capitalizing on the popularity of the company’s well established slot title, “Fire and Ice.”
“Adapting one of our most popular slot games for mobile allows users to play anywhere, anytime,” said Carson. “The ability to enjoy your favorite video slot game from the palm of your hand significantly enhances the game’s entertainment value and gives new meaning to the personalization of the gaming experience. Today’s consumers expect to be able to do just about anything and everything from their smart devices, so the opportunity to game on the go is in sync with that trend.”
Carson said GVG is especially excited about its new partnership with Ruby Seven Studios. Millions of people have played Ruby Seven games and their titles are frequently among the most popular casino titles on Google Play, iTunes and Amazon Kindle.
“It’s been a great ride so far to create a hybrid social casino game with a leading manufacturer of video game devices, said Michael Carpenter, CEO, Ruby Seven Studios. “Fire and Ice: Evolution” is the result of our partnership’s first effort that combines our social and mobile publishing know-how with proven real-money game design. We’re looking forward to expanding Fire and Ice to Facebook, Kindle, and even Windows Phone in the coming months.”
Fire and Ice: Evolution allows players to explore a universe of six exciting slot machines, multiple expanding wilds, with innovative and exciting bonus games. Fire and Ice: Evolution is currently available on iOS and Android and will soon be available on Facebook, and Kindle.
