Social Point’s Social Empires squeezes past The Sims Social to claim the top spot on this week’s list of fastest-growing growing Facebook games by daily active users. Mystery Manor rounds out the top three.

Casino, card, and slot games still make up a healthy chunk of this list this week. JackpotJoy Slots drops off as of press time, but Slotomania, DoubleDown Casino, Texas HoldEm, and SlotSpot all turn up here as the genres expand and converge.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Mystery Manor on our weekly rankings of games by traffic. The hidden object game typically turned up behind Playdom’s competing title, Gardens of Time, but here we see it standing alone in the top three. Earlier this week, Mystery Manor’s recent growth spike pushed it into the top 10 on our fastest-growing games by monthly active user list. Gardens of Time, meanwhile, is experiencing a shallower growth spike.
