  Share on Twitter Share on Facebook RSS

[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Big Fish, the world's largest producer of casual games, announced the re-release of its’ cheerful winter-themed slot machine, “Snow Day” in its #1 mobile social casino app “Big Fish Casino”. This game was the first to launch one of Big Fish Casino’s most popular features, Social Scatter™, the ability to get bonus chips when another player has a big win!

This hotly anticipated slot game is a familiar favourite; but will offer players a fresh experience with updated reel art, animations, and bigger wins. Get three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, and snowballs filled with free chips are launched at every player in the room. The new reel tension feature builds player excitement by slowing down the final reel that could trigger a big win. This feature is used in many land-based casinos, and adds to “Big Fish Casino’s” already authentic slot experience.

As with all games on the "Big Fish Casino" App, "Snow Day" allows for cross-platform play, so players can start a snowball fight on their iOS and/or Android mobile devices, as well as their PCs and on Facebook. A full table increases your chances of getting free chips, so invite your friends to play, or play on your own and interact with new people all around the world!

"Big Fish Casino" combines classic casino favourites – slots, blackjack, Texas Hold 'em poker, video poker, Roulette-- with non-traditional game mechanics, such as unique social slot games where individual slot players can trigger bonus rounds and race each other in high-speed tournaments.

"Big Fish Casino" is available now in the iTunes App Store, on Facebook; on  and for Android devices on Google Play and Amazon.

Keep up to date with the Big Fish Casino community on Facebook.
