Posted by at 12:00 am on October 1, 2010

SGN has announced the release of “MiniTycoon Casino” for the iPhone and iPod touch platforms at TechCrunch’s Disrupt event.   Utilizing Apple’s new Game Center network the game is designed to transport the social gaming experience from social network sites to the mobile platform. MiniTycoon Casino lets players live their “tycoon dreams” in the palm of their hands, anywhere in the world. It is the first in SGN’s MiniTycoon series, a suite of connected social experiences that enable users to create and share mobile virtual worlds and avatars across multiple gaming applications.

“Social games have grown exponentially in popularity and sophistication on the Internet, and the iPhone and iPod touch are the ideal platforms to transition the experience to a wider audience,” said Randy Breen, CEO of SGN. “MiniTycoon Casino allows players to become the biggest tycoon by creating the most successful casino through social game play from wherever they are. In MiniTycoon Casino, players control their casino’s destiny.”

In MiniTycoon Casino, players build their casino from an off-the-strip startup to a multi-million dollar empire. By designing and building a one-of-a-kind destination, incorporating popular motifs designed to bring in customers, such as classic Roman themes, players can create and personalize their own perfect gambling locale. Further, they can increase their gains by upgrading and maintaining gaming stations, compensating high rollers and hiring their friends in order to become the most successful owner in Las Vegas. MiniTycoon Casino is also optimized for the iPhone4 and new iPod touch and the devices’ advanced Retina Display, presenting stunning views of a player’s casino empire.

Friends With Money

But all the money and power in the world is nothing without friends to share it with. That’s why SGN created MiniTycoon Casino from the ground up with social networking in mind. Friends from around the world can invite each other through Apple’s Game Center, Facebook and Twitter, or meet and invite new people to join through the in-game messaging system. Casino owners can hire their friends as employees to gain experience and visit their friends’ casinos themselves, helping each other’s businesses and sharing their progress. Players can send gifts to one another to use in casinos and quickly and easily send messages, keeping the social network up to date as empires are built. Leaderboards are consistently updated to fuel in-game competition, giving players the incentive to become the “world’s greatest tycoon.”

MiniTycoon Casino will be available soon in the Apple App Store. Follow @minitycoon on Twitter for further launch information.
