Zynga Elite Slots is now live on Facebook

Zynga’s blend of social casino and mid-core role-playing game, Zynga Elite Slots, today arrived on Facebook.

As we learned last month from Design Director Josh Gause (who co-developed Bingo Blitz), Zynga Elite Slots features a combination of slots gameplay with cooperative multiplayer elements and and boss battles. Players are represented in a window at the top of the game canvas by one of 24 pets (all but two of which can be acquired by grinding), who run along a path with each slots spin. Users play their slots games alongside 149 other players in a slots room, with all of the spins contributing to a communal progress bar; when the bar is filled, everyone in the room participates in a boss battle that provides bonus content.

Zynga Elite Slots is an interesting idea because it combines two highly lucrative genres —mid-core and social casino— into one casual title. The game is currently only available on Facebook and is expected to come to Zynga.com at some point in the future, although no  launch date for that version has been announced yet.

Tune in tomorrow for our review of Zynga Elite Slots.
