Social networking sites like Facebook and Orkut are large international communities that are growing at a tremendous pace. They provide a ready source of Internet savvy and globally aware consumers. Internet organizations are targeting these social networking sites in an attempt to increase their own membership base. Online casinos are also making efforts in this direction. A recent notable effort has come from Jackpot City online casino which has launched an innovative Facebook program called Friends with Benefits.

Members of the Facebook can join the Friends with Benefits program of Jackpot City online casino. They will be invited to participate in private freeroll online slots tournaments at the casino. The first tournament offered to the members of this Facebook community had a prize pool of $1,500. Jackpot City online casino intends to keep these tournaments coming on a regular basis, although the prize pools will vary from time to time. Facebook members who have joined the Friends with Benefits community can participate in the next online tournament.

Online casino players who are members of Facebook can get more information about the program by joining Jackpot City online casino's Facebook group. Once registered, players will be updated regularly on the forthcoming events and opportunities.

Just as online casinos offer Refer a Friend bonuses to casino members who invite their friends to join the casino, members of Friends with Benefits program will receive additional benefits for inviting their friends.

Speaking about this new initiative a representative of the online casino said that Jackpot City realized that there was a synergy between the online casino operations and the social networking media and the two fitted perfectly. He said, "We saw a gap, and a real opportunity to prove that players come first at Jackpot City. It's more of a reward than a promotion, but we do hope it drives market penetration." Jackpot City online casino already has a strong following on Twitter. The casino representative added, "This won't be our last push into the social realm, and we certainly aren't planning to pull out any time soon."

Jackpot City online casino is a leading brand of the Belle Rock Entertainment Group. It is one of the older online casinos of the group having been launched in 1998. Jackpot City online casino is powered by software from Microgaming. It is licensed by the Government of Gibraltar. The operations of the casino have been audited by the independent agency eCOGRA, which has certified that Jackpot City is a safe and fair place to wager.

Seems like a lot more of the online casinos and poker rooms out there are getting into launching Facebook applications and other social media type applications and iPhone apps. It's really great though as social networking IMHO will certainly eventually continue to grow and increase in popularity so it's good for them to really get their foot in the door.
