These new titles demonstrate our evolution as a game studio. They have wonderful depth of play and great visual style. They just might be our best work yet.”
In The Misadventures of Sheerluck Hound, join Sheerluck and his trusty companion, Doctor Wheaton, as they search high and low through Old Town London in hot purrrrrrr-suit of the villainous Professor Meowiarti – Sheerluck’s nemesis. Play the game and make your way through London’s furry underbelly to solve the mystery. Spin the reels, search for hidden objects, and take notes along the way. You’ll need them to help Sheerluck and Wheaton collar the canine criminals and crack the case wide open!
Around the World earns the distinction of being PLAYSTUDIOS first mobile game to feature a hidden object bonus. Now, myVEGAS mobile players can experience a depth of play previously reserved for the company’s popular web games. Around the World in 80 Plays is a traditional reel slot game, inspired by the works of Jules Verne. During the course of the game, players visit five exotic locations, search for hidden objects, win chips, and accumulate achievements. A sizable prize awaits those who can make it around the world and back in just 80 spins!
myVEGAS is free to download and play. It is the only casino app that gives players a chance to get real world rewards from an exclusive collection of travel, leisure, and entertainment brands.
