WASHINGTON (July 6, 2017)—Murka, a mobile-first game developer, has partnered with National Geographic Partners to collaborate on the development of a unique social casino slot application aimed at celebrating exploration, nature and wildlife. The slot game will feature content from the well-known National Geographic wildlife channel Nat Geo WILD. Nat Geo WILD Slots™ soft launched on June 30th.
Nat Geo WILD Slots™ is a virtual journey around the world showcasing remarkable nature, history and architectural sites.

“We are really excited to expand our visual storytelling in this new way by providing Nat Geo WILD-themed content into the social casino gaming genre,” said Juan Gutierrez, Senior Vice President, Licensing, for National Geographic Partners. “At National Geographic we strive to push the boundaries further and this partnership does just that.”
