Trending: Analysis: Seattle startup ecosystem poised for unprecedented acceleration of company creation

DoubleDown Interactive now says that more than one million people are playing its social-based casino games on Facebook every day. The 52-person company, which just announced earlier this month that it is expanding into a new headquarters near CenturyLink Field, said that its online traffic is now on par with casinos found on the Vegas strip.

“We have doubled our customer base in just the past two months and continue to invest heavily in our platform to support our future growth,” said Glenn Walcott, the former executive at Big Fish Games who now serves as president of DoubleDown.

The company features 17 different games, including slots, blackjack, video poker and roulette. It plans to release multiplayer poker soon, adding to titles such as Fireworks SlotsHoroscope Slots and Candy Shop Slots. The company also said that it now allows players to “gift” virtual chips to friends on Facebook, a tactic that could help the game attract even more users.
