Win launches Garfield & friends
Win, the social gaming studio created and financed by bwin party, has launched ‘Garfield & friends’ on its Slots Craze social casino on Facebook and iOS.
The group added that Slots Craze had already had more than 1 million installs since the start of the year and player engagement had been exceptionally high, with more than half of new players coming back to play again the following day. Gamers have played more than 150 million spins, winning more than 14 trillion virtual coins altogether, added Win.
Garfield is the most syndicated character in the world and Jim Davis, its creator, said: “Anyone who’s ever woken up grumpy on Monday or eaten one pizza slice too many can relate to Garfield. And obviously the team at Win understands the cat — they’ve managed to capture all the fun and humour at the heart of the Garfield brand in Slots Craze. This engaging game brings Garfield to life in a new and interactive way.”
Players have to line up images of Garfield, his owner Jon Arbuckle; Jon’s dog, Odie; Jon’s love interest, Dr. Liz Wilson; and Garfield’s teddy bear, Pooky. Special animations include a napping Garfield falling off a windowsill or a half-witted Odie chasing his own tail.
Garfield & friends joins other famous characters such as Casper the friendly ghost, Sherlock Holmes and the cast of The Wizard of Oz on the Slots Craze roster.
