Rush Street Gaming Invests in Ruby Seven Studios
The social and mobile game developer Ruby Seven Studios has announced that it has received an investment of up to $3.5 million from an affiliate of the Chicago gaming company Rush Street Gaming.
By using Rush Street’s land-and-online casino experience, Ruby Seven hopes to improve on its already successful social gaming and live operations capabilities.The CEO of Ruby Seven Studios, Michael Carpenter, said that the two companies will “explore unique opportunities within the rapidly converging social, land-based, and online casino industries.” He believes that the companies are able to create “breakthrough game experiences … within all three realms.”
The President of Rush Street’s online gaming division, Richard Schwartz, said that he believes that Ruby Seven Studios already innovative products that are aimed “at lowering the execution risk involved in social game development and operations” make it “uniquely positioned to… successfully develop, deploy, and operate their games across all major social platforms.”
This is Ruby Seven’s second venture into the real-money casino world in the past year. Last May the company announced a partnership with the casino game design studio Bluhare Studios. Together the two companies have developed TimeQuest Slots which is widely regarded as a top-rated, time-travelling slots adventure.
