05/07/2015

New York, NY, May 7, 2015.  Tapinator, Inc. (OTC: TAPM) is pleased to announce that it has launched its first social casino property, “Video Poker VIP,” on Apple’s iOS platform. The title is a best in class video poker game with multiple poker variants, world locations, leveling, and experience point mechanics.

According to Eilers Research, LLC, the social casino market reached $2.8 billion in 2014, representing a 38% annual growth rate from 2013. The market is projected to grow to $3.5 billion this year. The majority of this revenue will come from mobile users, with mobile now accounting for 61% of all social casino revenue. Major players within the industry include Caesars Interactive Entertainment (CZR) with “Slotomania,” International Game Technology (IGT) with “DoubleDown Casino,” Zynga (ZNGA) with “Hit It Rich!” and Scientific Games (SGMS) with “Jackpot Party.”

Video Poker VIP is a unique offering that brings the most popular video poker games to mobile (Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild, Bonus Poker, Double Bonus) and combines them with mechanics that have proven effective in slot machine games. In the game, users enjoy multiple world locations, level-based progression, experience points, an optimal choice calculator, coin gifts every four hours, and slot/scratch-off minigames.

“We have been in development of Video Poker VIP since mid 2014 and are very excited to have just launched the product. We believe that the game is the highest quality video poker title on mobile. We will continue to improve the game, with version 1.1 launching in the next several weeks. In parallel, this week, we will begin a marketing campaign to drive player volume to the product and we look forward to the user response,” stated Tapinator CEO, Ilya Nikolayev.

Video Poker VIP is currently available on Apple’s iPad (http://tinyurl.com/videopokervip) and is coming soon to iPhone, Google Play and the Amazon Appstore.

Forward Looking Statements:

To the extent that statements contained in this press release are not descriptions of historical facts regarding Tapinator, they are forward-looking statements reflecting the current beliefs and expectations of management made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Words such as “may,” “will” “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “intend,” and similar expressions (as well as other words or expressions referencing future events, conditions or circumstances) are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Examples of forward-looking statements contained in this press release include, among others, statements regarding the quoting and trading of our common stock and our expectations regarding our development and monetization plans for our mobile games. Forward-looking statements in this release involve substantial risks and uncertainties that could cause the development and monetization of our mobile games, future results, performance or achievements to differ significantly from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include, among others, the uncertainties inherent in the hits nature of the mobile gaming business. Tapinator undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements. The quoting and trading of the company’s common stock on the OTC Market Group’s OTC Link quotation system is often thin and characterized by wide fluctuations in trading prices, due to many factors that may have little to do with the company’s operations or business prospects. As a result, there may be volatility in the market price of the shares of the company’s common stock for reasons unrelated to operating performance. Moreover, the OTC Market Group’s OTC Link quotation system is not a stock exchange, and trading of securities on it is often more sporadic than trading of securities listed on the NASDAQ Stock market or another securities exchange. Accordingly, stockholders may have difficulty reselling any of their shares. For a further description of the risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ from those expressed in these forward-looking statements, as well as risks relating to the business of the company in general, see Tapinator’s filings with the OTC Market Group, which are available through http://www.otcmarkets.com.
