Nearly every fan of online gambling has had some experience with social casino games – the ones that allow players to place bets using fake
currency on a variety of popular casino games. While these are mostly
found on mobile gaming platforms and social media sites such as
Facebook, they are beginning to take shape in some other ways.

With more and more traditional game developers and publishers beginning
to take notice of the social casino space, there has been a rise in the
number of such social casino games as GTA Online and NBA 2K. Needless to
say, these games are already proving to be very lucrative ventures for
the companies involved and hence we should expect even more to spring up
in the near future. However, if you are a fan, you will not need to
wait that long since there are a number of great options currently
available and these include the ones mentioned above.most popular casinos

Rockstar Games has been one of the most popular traditional game
developers in the world and it was therefore not very surprising that
its social casino game offering would be such a big deal. It all began
when the company launched Red Dead Online and gave the gamers the
opportunity to play blackjack and poker. In July 2019, the company
finally followed through with the highly-anticipated launch of GTA
Online’s Diamond Casino. This came with slots, craps, roulette and card
Most recently, 2K Games has revealed through a rather bizarre trailer a
number of casino-style mechanics that are set to be added to NBA 2K20.
The addition of these features will allow basketball fans to unlock
player cards for the MyTeam mode in slots, pachinko as well as a giant
spinning wheel.
Needless to say, it is quite clear that traditional game publishers are
actively pursuing the casino gambling space through the introduction of
these social casino games. In fact, Strauss Zelnick, the chief executive
officer of Take-Two Interactive which owns both 2K Games and Rockstar
has pointed out that the move to add casino gaming options to Red Dead
Online, GTA Online and NBA 2K are all deliberate.
Fortunately, the players seem to be embracing the social casino
offerings that are being added to the video games. For this reason,
Take-Two Interactive and other video game publishers definitely have
good reason to continue capitalizing on the casino business.
