Battleship Jackpot Command sets sail on PopCap's Lucky Gem Casino

Particularly topical at the moment with the Battleship movie in cinemas nationwide, Hasbro’s hit franchise is the latest to join PopCap’s Lucky Gem Casino in the form of Battleship Jackpot Command, the social-themed online slot game where players hunt for enemy ships and win community progressive jackpots with their friends.

A hallmark of Lucky Gem’s free slot-based social game experience has been the quality of the slot-based games and the variety of gameplay for casino fans in terms of games’ character, imagery and game mechanics. In addition to gameplay, which sees players spin the reels to destroy ships (and earn huge amounts of coins in the bonus round), in Battleship Jackpot Command players can also chance their luck at a progressive jackpot, which grows as more players play.  

Battleship Jackpot Command features include:

·         Watch Facebook friends destroy ships - and keep an eye on their earnings!

  • Match Battleship boat symbols to create an Aircraft carrier, Battleship, Submarine and a Destroyer for extra coins
  • Create all wild columns - watch out for mines and depth charges that show up in a reel
  • Recruit your Facebook friends as gunners - the number of shots that friends have is revealed this repeats until players run out of gunner friends. And, at the end of the bonus game, you can gift extra coins to favourite Facebook allies
  • And any time players sink a ship, during the Bonus Game, they get HUGE reward feedback, earn the progressive jackpot and their success is broadcast to all other players
