“Launching a Sex and the City social slot game with Zynga’s Hit It Rich! was a perfect opportunity to provide fans with a platform to continue engaging with the show in a way that celebrates friendship, fashion and fun in the same spirit as the series,” said Josh Goodstadt, Vice President of HBO Global Licensing. “We’re very excited that even more fans of the show will be able to play the game as it continues to roll out on new mobile platforms.”
