Shaquille O’Neal, a renowned basketball prodigy, is looking forward to stretch his brand of fun. After PlayStudios, the game publisher of social casino, infused celebrity mix with its two MyVegas games; viz. ShaqJack and CaddyShaq with partnership with O’Neal, there has been more fun into it. The MyVegas games work well, as the players get to earn their online points, which are redeemable at MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM)’s properties for non-gaming amenities.
The Casino Games
ShaqJack is a form of blackjack, while CaddyShaq is the slot machine casino game. Both of these titles have been narrated by O’Neal. Shaq worked in association with PlayStudios to design, develop and implement these two titles of games. Both ShaqJack and CaddyShaq were recently made accessible to Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Play, Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) and iOS.
When interviewed by Forbes in 2014, Shaw said that his brand was associated with fun. This venture with PlayStudios will allow Shaw to earn even more. He is already valued at $350 million. In 2013, he earned an amount of $23 million.
MyVegas and MGM Connection
As far as MyVegas is concerned, it allows the players of these games to earn their online reward points. All these points are redeemable at the non-gaming facilities of all MGM properties, apart from Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (NYSE:RCL) or other partners of PlayStudios.
Players will also have a chance of winning the autographed T-Shirts with CaddyShaq title. Also, they will be able to get autographed jerseys for basketball. Along with all this, the players of aforementioned games will also have a chance of enjoying a basketball one-on-one game with Shaquille O’Neal himself. Also, the players’ benefits do not stop here. They have an opportunity of winning the Sacramento Kings game floor seats.
The real-life rewards to players, boosts PlayStudios’ credibility
PlayStudios’ credibility gained momentum because unlike other online casino games, this company converts the players’ fun into real-life awards. The players can get complementary Las Vegas hotel stays as well as other non-gaming amenities and facilities.
