Win, the social gaming company backed by bwin.party, today announced a strategic collaboration with United Auburn Indian Community, owner and operator of the successful Thunder Valley Casino Resort. Win and Thunder Valley Casino Resort will work hand in hand to deliver a unique casino gaming experience that integrates the brand, loyalty program and game content of the real-world Thunder Valley Casino Resort within Win’s flagship Slots Craze social casino game application on Facebook, iOS and Android platforms.
“Win is always looking for innovative ways to make social casino gaming more exciting and rewarding,” said Barak Rabinowitz, CEO of Win. “This partnership with Thunder Valley Casino Resort allows us to tap into the very popular and well-known Thunder Valley brand, and offer our players unique rewards for engagement that bridge the gap between online and offline casinos. We are very excited to introduce Thunder Valley to our community.”
To kick off the partnership, Win will create custom-designed Thunder Valley Casino Resort games for its popular Slots Craze application, which has been installed by more than 1.5 million consumers since its launch in the Spring of 2013. As they engage in the game and increase their “Experience Level,” players will earn special rewards inspired by the Thunder Club, Thunder Valley’s proprietary loyalty and rewards program. Thunder Rewards earned online will be redeemable for dining, gift shop, hotel, gaming and other rewards at the Thunder Valley Casino Resort just outside Sacramento, California.
“Thunder Valley has established a reputation for fun and excitement in a grand, luxurious setting,” said Dawn Clayton, General Manager of Thunder Valley Casino Resort. “Win has proven its ability to create world-class social gaming experiences, and we are very pleased to partner in extending our brand to the world of social casino gaming, and to be able to offer our guests new ways to earn rewards while at home or on the go.”
Win and Thunder Valley Casino Resort will team up on cross-promotions, marketing and content creation. The first Thunder Valley-themed games are expected to hit Slots Craze in Q4 of 2014, joining other recognizable brands such as Garfield™, Casper the Friendly Ghost™, Sherlock Holmes, Count Dracula, the cast of the Wizard of Oz, and more. Slots Craze’s latest and most popular slot yet is Vegas Spins, which offers players a virtual seat in the most popular gambling town in the world.
