Jackpot247 responds to popularity of casino-style games on Facebook

2 January 2014

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Facebook has released a list of their top 25 games of 2013, and five casino-style games have managed to make the list. Gaming on social media platforms such as Facebook has grown exponentially over the years, and casino games are now a popular choice for users of the site. The "Games of the Year" list has been compiled based on a combination of "user ratings, Facebook implementation, growth and overall quality,” reports Casino Meister.

Many of the games chosen can be played on both Internet and mobile platforms, with the rise of mobile gambling games also reflected in the list. It has previously been predicted that the mobile gaming industry could be worth around $12 million in 2014, and it is possible that early examples of this growth have contributed to the choice of these five games for the overall list in 2013.

Jackpot 247, providers of a wide variety of online casino games such as live blackjack and other arcade games, has responded to this report from the social media site. A spokesperson for the company said:

“The popularity of these casino-style games on Facebook isn’t a huge surprise, as the rise of online gambling through this and similar platforms has already been noted. With this report reflecting consumer behavior in 2013, it’s an encouraging sign going into the new year and 2014 will no doubt see a further rise in the number of people enjoying safe, legitimate Internet gambling from the comfort of their homes.”

Jackpot247 designs, creates and operates live roulette games broadcast on ITV and Sky Channel 86, using casino-certified equipment. With the best range of online casino games, the firm also provides live blackjack online, roulette, poker, arcade games and Jackpot 247 casino slots available to play online and on mobile, with a view to providing an authentic casino experience to the home. The company encourages responsible gambling and only provides games manufactured to the highest standards to ensure customer satisfaction.
