Social Casino Supplier of the Year
2018 Gaming Intelligence Social Casino Supplier of the Year
A number of leading US suppliers have successfully operated social casino businesses, but few have had the same level of success in creating a viable B2B product.
Scientific Games is the exception. It has made its free-to-play Play4Fun Network a central part of a range of solutions that land-based operators can use to drive growth in off-property revenue.
Rather than looking at social casino as a stand-alone product, Play4Fun is integrated into a casino’s loyalty programme, supported by free-to-play variants of slots from the supplier’s range of studio brands.
While Scientific Games maintains its own B2C social casino products, it uses customer research to tailor the solutions it offers to clients. This helps it to avoid falling into the trap of expecting clients to compete against its own offering.
In a sector where so many gambling businesses have tried and failed to establish a significant presence, Scientific Games has successfully leveraged a range of assets to create an industry leading solution.
New clients in Oklahoma and Arizona show that US land-based operators certainly agree. In the past year, no other social casino solutions provider has come close.
