Nevada, USA is very liberal about online gambling and most social gaming applications are free for the local gamblers. Nevertheless, the myVegas application reserves the right for some Las Vegas casinos to earn.

myVegas has announced a new partnership with Station Casinos and Royal Caribbean cruises late September and now they have added Blackjack to the list of games they provide for playing online through the social networks.

“Our team took a serious look at what worked well within our mobile myVegas Slots app, and we asked our players what they most enjoyed about the traditional blackjack gaming experience. In the end, we discovered some great opportunities for innovation,and those insights drove the development of myVegas Blackjack,” said Andrew Pascal, the president and CEO of myVegas developer PlayStudios.

Poker is the only online game where players can gamble real money as stated in Nevada law, but social gaming apps have found a way around that. Players download the software for free and pay only for the in-app purchases, such as special virtual tokens.

myGaming has gone further and decided to attract gamers with prizes that are not gaming-related, such as hotel rooms or tickets to the shows. That's the way to attract gamblers to the resorts to use their rewards and that's where they will most likely spend money on other things and that's how the casino maker it's revenue.

Adam Krejcik, managing director of digital and interactive gaming at Eilers Research says he expects social gaming revenues to reach $2.7 billion this year, up from $2 billion in 2013.
