GSN Games Finds Quick Success with GSN Grand Casino on iOS, Android

The game offers slot machines, card games and bingo games in a free-to-play experience.

Last week, GSN Games launched GSN Grand Casino worldwide on iOS and Android devices. The game is off to a great start, currently sitting at the No. 2 position for top free iPhone games on iTunes, and is the No. 14 overall top free iPhone app on the platform. In GSN Grand Casino, players have access to slot machines, card and bingo games.

Gamers are led through GSN Grand Casino by Heather, a VIP concierge who gives players free chips and introduces them to the game’s various elements.

Players will begin with access to three slot machines featuring two popular brands: Deal or No Deal and Wheel of Fortune. Each machine offers themed bonus opportunities. For instance, the Deal or No Deal machine offers a Deal or No Deal mini-game, allowing gamers to play through the complete game show to determine their bonus chip multiplier. There are two Wheel of Fortune games unlocked to start, with additional machines becoming available as players level up in the overall game.

Players need to reach level three before unlocking video bingo, while the first card game, video poker, unlocks at level eight. Additional games in both categories are unlocked over time, with even more games coming in future updates.

While players earn free chips over time, they can purchase chips instantly with real money. Players can also purchase bonus balls and power-ups in bingo.

During the game’s opening weekend, 2.5 trillion chips were won, in total, by all players. The biggest win was a 10.4 billion chip jackpot in the Wheel of Fortune Classic slot machine, but the Deal of No Deal machine proved to be the most popular game overall, with its biggest winner receiving an 8.5 billion chip jackpot.

Kevin Frisch, CMO of GSN Games, told us:

We designed GSN Grand Casino from the ground up by learning what the ultimate mobile casino experience felt like for three key audiences: our community, casino players who did not play our games and people who hadn’t yet found a casino game they enjoyed.

Through deep market research and player insights, we realized that there was the opportunity to create the leading high-end social casino experience on the market. From the look of the casino environment to the tone of voice that our VIP concierge uses, it has always been crucial that GSN Grand Casino resonated with these audiences and delivered entertainment that the market was missing.

We are excited about how players have responded to GSN Grand Casino in its grand opening weekend, and we’ll have even more dazzling content coming their way soon.

GSN Grand Casino is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
