Newsbrief: Just months after Atari secured approval for a plan to pay back part of its debt and exit bankruptcy, the company is looking to turn its fortunes around -- by entering the social casino games business.

The iconic games company is working with social games studio FlowPlay to launch its own social casino gaming platform called Atari Casino, through which the pair plan to provide "a first class interactive experience for social casino."

The platform, launching later this year, will be available through Facebook and on mobile devices, and will make use of plenty of classic Atari franchises like Asteroids, Breakout, Centipede and Missile Command.

Essentially, the company is taking the valuable IP that is has, and splashing slots, poker and blackjack across them. Expect to see the platform launch in Fall 2014.
