HACKENSACK, NJ – April 24, 2012 – Slingo, Inc., a leading cross-media gaming company, today announced it has launched their third Daily Challenge game, Twiki Gems – a brand new Match 5 puzzle game available at Slingo.com. Each day, the Daily Challenge games post a new score to beat using a different set of power-ups that enhance gameplay and add new wrinkles of strategy to each game.
Already more than 1 million Twiki Gems daily challenges have been played by the growing Slingo community, with more than 15 million total games played across the site every month. The early success of Twiki Gems reflects the growing worldwide popularity of the company’s entertainment offerings. Currently, Slingo is the #1 Casino App on iTunes, while the Zynga Slingo Facebook game is played by more than 17.5 million MAU* (Monthly Active Users) since its launch on February 15. Slingo-branded lottery tickets are available across the US and in Canada, while Slingo slot machines are found in top casinos and resorts.
“Our Daily Challenge has quickly become one of the most popular game series on our site,” said Rich Roberts, CEO of Slingo. “ Twiki Gems’ combination of puzzle-solving and strategy has massive appeal to our audience, and overall we are finding that our style of gameplay translates extremely well to today’s popular gaming platforms, including iOS, Facebook and others.”
Twiki Gems is an epic quest to restore balance to the rain forest. Led by your new guide, Twiki the Toucan, the game challenges players to place and match 5 gems in a row and clear them off of the board. Once a match is made, players can remove an unwanted gem from the board. Adding a layer of strategy are worthless coal pieces which can block your match and must be carefully placed. Knowing when to make a match or place a gem is key to beating the daily challenge.
