bigfishroulette1Roulette, like many casino table games, can get a little boring if you’re playing alone. For those who want an audience watching their big money wheel spins but can’t make it to the casino, Big Fish now has an answer.

The Seattle game maker, founded by former RealNetworks employee Paul Thelen in 2002, just added the first-ever multiplayer mobile real-money roulette game to its U.K. mobile social casino.

“The fun of roulette is playing with other people,” Carey DiJulio, VP and GM of Big Fish Casino, said in a press release. “Adding roulette to ‘Big Fish Casino UK’ is one more way Big Fish is bringing the true feel and excitement of casino entertainment to our mobile players any time and anywhere.”

Big Fish currently sits atop the GeekWire 200 list, our ranking of the top privately-held companies in the region. The company announced in March that it had distributed more than two billion casual games to PCs and mobile devices since it was started. Even more impressive, the company posted $220 million in bookings last year, the 10th consecutive record year.

In April, Big Fish said that its multiplayer casino game “Big Fish Casino” was the top-grossing iOS app among all casino games worldwide while also tripling revenue in the past year.

In 2011, the company reported sales of $180 million, with the business growing at a 30 percent clip. Big Fish says that its games are downloaded more than one million times per day, and that nearly every one of its 3,000 PC and Mac games made money last year.
