They have already past the 3 million app installations milestone in 2013 and reached the top spit in US iTunes with their Blackjack Live For Tango. This mutually beneficial partnership was recently given a further boost as Abzorba games expanded their partnership with Tango to include a new branded multiplayer Poker game.
The new Poker For Tango means that Tango now has the complete portfolio if multiplayer social casino games on Android and iOS. CEO of Abzorba, Andrew Hughes commented on the latest addition ,” The addition of Poker for Tango completes a ‘Full House’ of co-branded game titles from us and demonstrates Tango’s faith in the strength of AbZorba’s game technology and know how.
