TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - March 10, 2015) - Imperus Technologies Corp. ("Imperus" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: LAB) (FRANKFURT: ISX) (FRANKFURT WKN: A12B58) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Diwip Ltd., has launched "Slots Club", a new Social Gaming App for mobile and other major platforms.

  • Available on Facebook, Android, and iOS
  • Additional revenue stream created through in-game purchases of virtual goods
  • Joining catalogue of highly successful top ranked social gaming apps from DIWIP

Slots Club

The latest addition to the Diwip product portfolio, "Slots Club" will be available on Android, iOS and Facebook. The gaming app features a variety of themed video slot machines featuring 40 pay lines, unique and special bonuses with fully integrated social features. The application is free to download and free to play.

Players start with 5,000 complimentary points and access to a particular slot machine. Gamers then place their bets and spin. Experience points can be accumulated to level-up and open up new slot machines and rooms. Other features include daily leaderboards, tournaments, and a special experience Happy Hour where players can earn double experience points on every spin.

Slots Club is a socially enabled app, allowing users to "share" achievements, coins and gift spins with friends. In addition, users can invite other players to play against them.

The game allows players to purchase in-game virtual coins and features seasonal sales and discounted deals. The price of the deals are dependent on the level of the player, so a new player may receive a special discount compared with a more advanced gamer.

"We are very excited to bring this new social gaming app to the market and add to our existing high margin revenue streams in addition to our already successful catalogue of social gaming Apps," states Daniel Kajouie, President and CEO of Imperus. "Diwip has a very successful track record in launching Freemium Social Games, such as Slots Club, generating revenue and increasing average revenue per user."

The new games can be found under the term "Slots Club" on Facebook, Google Play Store (Android) and Apple's App Store (iOS).

Diwip, with approximately 24 million registered users, is involved in the business of constructing a social gaming experience consisting of a full suite of attractive and compelling casino-themed games -- including slots, bingo, Texas hold'em poker, roulette, blackjack and video poker -- under the Best Casino and Slots Club brands. Diwip designs, develops and distributes its social casino-themed games within online social networks (such as Facebook) and mobile platforms (such as Android or iPhone).

All of Diwip's games are free to play, and Diwip generates revenue through the in-game sale of virtual goods and advertising.

In addition, the Company announces the departure of its Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Dmitri Dain. The Company, following the acquisition of Diwip, has the technical expertise it requires. The Company would like to thank Mr. Dain for his contribution and efforts and wishes him well in his future endeavors.
