California-based social and mobile casino gaming company Gamzio Mobile has launched its first real-money casino app titled “Casino Island Adventure,” now available from the Apple UK App Store.

The launch follows Gamzio’s success in the social casino segment of the market, (see previousĀ  reports) and positions the company strongly for a foray into the $3.4 billion British online gambling industry.

In a statement Thursday, Gamzio claimed that Casino Island Adventure has successfully completed compliance review by the UK gaming authorities, and has been approved by Apple.

“We see substantial upside revenue potential with Casino Island Adventure in this fast-growing mobile segment of the $39.7 billion gaming industry.” said Gamzio CEO Jason Deiboldt. “Our new game offers a unique high quality slots experience, and we are working aggressively to expand our differentiating portfolio of social and real money casino games even further.”

According to a study by Juniper Research, annual mobile casino wagers could reach $62 billion globally by 2018.

Gamzio recently released “Slots-O-LuckĀ  AdventureHD.”
