Guests will visit the casino’s website ( and log in through Facebook to play with “virtual gaming chips.” The Guests will be asked to fill out brief user information. Before the Guest begins play, DoubleDown™ will award a returning bonus plus a daily spin bonus just for logging on. First-time users receive $1 million in free chips. Free-to-play blackjack, slots, slot tournaments, roulette and video poker are just some of the games that are available online.
