Scientific Games, Playtika Honored by Facebook

Social casino games from Scientific Games Corporation and Playtika, a subsidiary of Caesars Interactive Entertainment, made Facebook’s 2015 “Web Games of the Year” list.

“Hot Shot Casino,” developed by Scientific Games’ SG Interactive division, was developed based on the manufacturer’s hit land-based title.

“This recognition exemplifies our deep understanding of our players and the market,” Scientific Games Chief Executive-Interactive Barry Cottle said in a statement. “And it is a validation of Scientific Games’ commitment to creating the best entertainment for players wherever they are—online, mobile or in the casino.”

“Vegas Downtown Slots” from Playtika presents virtual versions of classic reel-spinning slot machines from Las Vegas’ glory years.
