IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/21/14 -- Gamzio Mobile, Inc. (OTCQB: GAMZ), the innovative mobile & social casino gaming company, is pleased to announce today that it has acquired the Facebook social casino app Go-Go Casino. Gamzio CEO Jason Deiboldt proves to the marketplace he is focused on making good on promises to shareholders to aggressively grow through strategic acquisitions and organic player acquisition.
The Go-Go Casino Facebook Fan Page has 147,320 Likes and can be found here:
The Go-Go Casino App is currently in redevelopment by the Gamzio DevOps Team. Go-Go has been extremely popular in the past, amassing over 361,000 player downloads, but a recent lack of upgrades and technology had caused a decline in users.
Gamzio is now working behind the scenes of Go-Go's current casino operations to update functions, install upgrades and enhancements to gameplay, and deploy proven optimization frameworks from its other successful games. The new and improved Gamzio Go-Go Casino will be rolled out over the next 45 days.
CEO, Jason Deiboldt, stated, "Gamzio is very happy about expanding our reach to the Facebook canvas which serves over 375 million gamers monthly. We are pleased to welcome our new players from Go-Go Casino to the Gamzio family. We plan to totally revise and re-launch Go-Go Casino with a brand new unmatched player experience on Facebook."
Go-Go Casino has been installed by over 361,000 users on Facebook. With Facebook's "total payment and other fees" revenue (which is made up largely of game revenue), totalling $237 million for 2014Q1, the acquisition of Go-Go Casino provides Gamzio with the opportunity to tap into this large pool of players and new revenue.
Gamzio's integration with Facebook can be leveraged to provide an expanded set of features and experiences for its players, while expanding the company's reach to browser-based online games.
About The Lucrative Social Casino Industry
Social casino games are "one of the most lucrative segments in mobile games, and in the mobile app market at large publishers of Social Casino Games dominate the top publishers leaderboards" according to Scott Reyburn, who published the Social Casino Gaming Report which can be read at:
The Report states that on the AppIQ Apple App Store top Games-Casino grossing publishers leaderboard globally, Slotomania creator Playtika (now owned by Caesars) was the No. 1 publisher in a seven-day period from March 17 to March 23, accounting for 21 percent of the total revenue among the top 10 publishers (above). Seattle-headquartered Big Fish Games was in close second, with a 16 percent share of the total revenue.
Major casino operators are quickly converging on the social casino industry.

Caesars Interactive Entertainment reported an 82 per cent increase in net revenue to $124.2m for the first quarter of 2014, driven by record growth from its social and mobile gaming business, as well as the first contributions from its recent Pacific Interactive acquisition. Pacific interactive is the fourth social casino operator Caesars has acquired.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators.
