At Zynga, we love to celebrate our players and their passion for our games any chance we get. On November 5, we teamed up with Wynonna Judd and her new band, Wynonna & the Big Noise, to throw a once-in-a-lifetime concert experience for some of our VIP Hit It Rich! Slots players.
More than 160 Hit It Rich! VIP players traveled from across the country to Zynga’s San Francisco HQ for a special evening of songs and slots. The evening began with a VIP reception where players dined on Hit It Rich! Slots themed treats and got a sneak peek of the newest Zynga Social Slots game, Princess Bride Slots. Following the reception, Wynonna & the Big Noise played an intimate concert for our players, previewing music from their upcoming inaugural album. A meet and greet autograph session capped off the experience for players as they got up close and personal with the Grammy-nominated music icon.
In conjunction with the debut of Wynonna & the Big Noise’s album, Hit It Rich! Slots will feature the band in a branded machine in 2016. Wynonna & the Big Noise Hit It Rich! Slots game will include brand-new music and exclusive concert clips from the band’s performance at Zynga.
“It was such a great experience partnering with the Hit It Rich! team to give their VIP players a private Wynonna & The Big Noise concert experience,” said Wynonna. “I’m excited to connect with Hit It Rich! players through the Wynonna & the Big Noise special Hit It Rich! machine coming to the virtual casino lobby in 2016, in conjunction with the debut of our new album. We look forward to sharing even more of our music with the Hit It Rich! community.”

Attention Commanders, be aware that there is a new update headed to the battlefield. Beginning today, Empires & Allies players will have clearance to access the War Factory, bringing never-before-seen levels of defensive and offensive strategy to their base.
We have heard from many of our Commanders that they want more ways to arm their base to make it stronger against enemy attacks. With the new War Factory crafting mechanic, players can enhance their preferred method of game play, whether it’s stocking up on new defensive weapons to better protect their base or earning power-ups to bolster their offensive strategy when launching attacks around the globe.
- Stealth Generator: With the Stealth Generator, Commanders can cloak areas of their base, making them virtually invisible to attackers.
- Air-Med Dronehive: The Air-Med Dronehive heals your base in real-time to improve your chances of surviving an incoming enemy attack.
- Weapons Command Power-Up: For players who are offensively-minded, earning Weapons Command Power-Ups will boost their offensive power giving them strategic advantages when attacking, such as the ability to drop a nuke first on their opponent. Using Command Power-Ups is especially helpful in taking on bases that have deployed the defensive tools of the War Factory.
In addition to the War Factory, players will have access to two new and exciting features in the latest update. Since launching Empires & Allies, one of the top requests from our players is the ability to change their name. Starting today, players in Empires & Allies can now swap out their original name for a new in-game name. Also included in the update is an enhanced League Leaderboard which supplies all League players with the same number of medals, enabling them to climb the Leaderboard as they engage in fast, furious and fair battles.
Stay tuned for more news on Empires & Allies by following the game’s YouTube, Twitter,Tumblr and Facebook channels. Also tune in to the dev team’s weekly live stream “Firepower Fridays” at Twitch.tv/empiresandallies.
See you on the battlefield!
