Austin-based social casino games developer Bee Cave Games has partnered NASDAQ-listed Multimedia Games to launch free-to-play variants of the land-based developer’s popular real-money video slots.

The partnership will see Multimedia Games’ content launched for Facebook, iOS, Android and Amazon Kindle over the course of the year with the first title, Zombie Outbreak, now live on the Bee Cave Blackjack & Slots Facebook app.

All games will be integrated with special features such as Social Spins and live tournaments, with Zombie Outbreak to be rolled out for mobile devices in the coming weeks.

Bee Cave chief executive Erik Bethke said he was excited to be working with Multimedia Games, saying that it would offer the supplier’s games in a “fun and social setting.”

“The Multimedia Games content aligns with our vision of delivering the most entertaining casino games to our players across a variety of platforms,” Bethke added.

Multimedia Games’ CEO Patrick Ramsey said that Bee Cave’s social casino was a “terrific forum” for giving customers access to exciting gaming content.

“I am confident that this alliance to feature our popular video slot titles on their platform will further expand the worldwide audience for our gaming content and will bring new levels of excitement and entertainment to Bee Cave Games’ audience of social and mobile players,” Ramsey explained.

Founded in 1991, Multimedia Games is active in a number of US markets, launching its products for players in Las Vegas in the Orleans Casino in 2012, having been licensed in the state in 2011.

It also supplies its games for video lottery terminals in Washington, with its games also available in California, Iowa and the Canadian state of Ontario.
