Social gaming company Win has announced the launch of its newest Facebook game, Stardust Casino, which looks to take players back to the golden days of the Las Vegas Strip. Developed in partnership with Boyd Gaming Corporation, Stardust Casino looks to combine nostalgia for the hotel, which opened in 1958 (and was demolished in 2007) with modern gaming technology.
Stardust Casino offers blackjack, roulette and slot machine games, all inside a “re-imagination” of the Stardust Resort & Casino. The game is based in a recreation of the Stardust Casino lobby, as players rise through the gambling ranks from “novice” to “high roller” by earning virtual chips and experience points as they play.
“The Stardust represents everything that was great about the early days of Las Vegas, and we are proud to work with Boyd Gaming to help bring this legendary brand back to life,” said Barak Rabinowitz, CEO of Win, in a company statement. “Our aim was to recapture the romance and adventure of vintage Las Vegas, and what better way to do that than to recreate online the legendary Stardust Casino?”
Stardust Casino has launched as a free application on Facebook in the UK, Canada and Australia, with a US launch planned for the coming months. For now, gamers with access to one of those regional Facebook accounts can play the game for free on Facebook.
