The Prairie Island Indian Community has announced the launch of playTIcasino, a play casino on a social gaming platform.
It seems almost every week a new online social casino site is launching in the United States. Because real money online gaming is restricted in the states, gaming operators are finding ways around these restrictions with social gaming sites. A social gaming site will provide the same great game play but for free. Operators do have the ability to make money via such sites by offering the sale of chips or play money to be used once free money/coins have been used up.
Over the past few months, several tribal groups have launched social gaming sites which gives them an advantage. If the state in which the tribe resides legalizes online gaming, then the group is already offering an online gaming option and a real money conversion could take place. The latest tribe to launch such an online gaming site is the Prairie Island Indian Community, a federally-recognized Indian tribe in the US.
The new online social casino platform launched by the tribe is known as playTIcasino. This is considered a next generation offering and was created for the Treasure Island Resort & Casino located in Minnesota. The casino is actually a premier destination in the Midwest and will be one of the first in the state to launch a digital gaming platform. Players to the site will find that there are many gaming offerings including slots and table games. The goal of the online offering is to entice players to visit the land-based venue.
Prairie Island Tribal Council President Shelley Buck, commented on the new release, by stating that the tribe looked to Greentube to create a new social gaming platform branded to their casino that will allow players experience Treasure Island in a new way. With the new social casino, players can enjoy their favorite games from Treasure Island from anywhere at any time. The hope is that this will increase brand loyalty and guests will be allowed to connect with friends via social media platforms in the process. Even tournaments will be offered to bring in more players to the site.
Powered by Greentube
The new social casino is powered by Greentube Pro which is a private-label social casino marketing platform by Greentube. Kenny Huang created this new platform with a team from BlueBat Games, a subsidiary of the company. With the new platform, the online social gaming site will be able to use marketing strategies in-game across several channels. The software tracks modern life including socializing aspects, shopping and more via any device.
With playTIcasino, players will be able to enjoy online gaming with the goal of enticing the millennial generation. Individuals in this generation seem to be more focused on online aspects rather than traditional casino gaming. With this new application, Treasure Island should be able to introduce their brand to this demographic.
In order to create a life-like experience, the team from Greentube visited the casino on different occasions to be able to capture the essence of the property. Players will find the online experience is similar to visiting the land-based venue in appearance and overall feel. Whether players log on online vie mobile device or desktop, the online social gaming site operates the same on a seamless platform. Players can earn rewards and enjoy their favorite games whenever they like. The application for playTIcasino is available now via the App Store or Google Play. As long as a broadband connection is available, players are instantly connected to game play.
