Developed by parent company FlowPlay, a Seattle, Washington,-based game company started by former Real Networks General Manager Derrick Morton in 2006, Vegas World is a social casino, free-to-play MMORPG (massive multiplayer online roleplaying game).
This means that clients can choose an avatar and after playing casino games, go to the club and dance or take a dip in the virtual swimming pool.
In addition to Vegas World, which operates on Facebook, Android, iOS, and the web, FlowPlay also runs a game called ourWorld. This is the company’s franchise title and is similar to Vegas World but without the casino aspect.
While Facebook is touting the Metaverse as something “new”, it’s actually been around a long time, according to FlowPlay.
In December 2021, FlowPlay was acquired by Wind Creek Hospitality. Details and the price were not disclosed.
FlowPlay currently maintains a corporate office in Seattle, Washington.
