Soon, Facebook would be a platform to gamble. This would happen after International Game Technology (IGT), the top manufacturer of online casino software, enters an agreement with Double Down Interactive and pay $500 million to develop casino-like games for this social networking site.
Double Down is the leading casino product on this networking site. According to the CEO of this company based in Seattle, they have had talks with Facebook to permit wagering with real cash in authorized jurisdictions. IGT has gigantic studio space to create slot content. So, this acquisition of Double Down is sensible. Soon, we would see slots with brands like Sex & the City, DaVinci Diamonds, Wheel of Fortune, and DaVinci Diamonds Dual Play, which is the recent introduction.
The agreement between the two companies is likely to be over by March end this year. The agreement involves $250 million in hard cash; $165 million cash payable over three years in the case Double Down meets its financial goals; and $85 million as retention payments.
Double Down Casino entered the gambling market in April 2010. In a short time, it has managed to draw about 1.4 million users almost daily on Facebook. This made it the fourth most popular game on the social network site last year. Till the agreement is over, Double Down will have its headquarters in Seattle with its 80 or so employees. After March, they will expand.
Gambling experts see this agreement as a major shuffle in the world of gambling as well as social networking.
