It appears to be adware. I am fully aware about casino related sites. This is a stand alone game where v1.1 was clean from Download.com. I submitted the files to Trend Micro for analysis and got back the following results:

We have analyzed and verified the file SpreadFirefox.exe to be non-malicious. This file attempts to download an installer of the application Mozilla Firefox. However, the site is inaccessible as of this writing.

Upon downloading and installing the file Jackpot Ultimate Casino from the URL that you gave, it drops the file ~nsisload.exe in the %TemP%\nsz13.tmp folder. Trend Micro detects this component file as TROJ_AGENT.BHA.

It looks like the SpreadFirefox.exe is a new adware component and you may want to submit it for detection with Spybot.
