Spanish bingo site features Live Presenters and embedded side games like Chippendales: The Reel Deal
13 January 2011 (London, UK) – One of the world’s largest and most respected online gambling operators has chosen GTECH G2 to provide the software and network for its new bingo site. Sportingbet has just launched ParadiseBingo.com in the Spanish market offering GTECH G2 bingo and side games. ParadiseBingo.com joins G2’s International Bingo Network (IBN) whose 80 sites in Spain, the UK and across Europe make it one of the world’s largest bingo networks. Sportingbet also licenses its sports betting and poker software from GTECH G2.
The GTECH G2 Bingo client features community building features such as multi lingual chat rooms and live presenters that promote the development of a thriving social community and add stickiness. Live presenters, online from 9:30 – 12:30 (CET) every night, have been particularly well received by players. The Bingo Live! Room on the ParadiseBingo.com site is hosted by live Spanish-speaking presenters that chat and engage with players and promote upcoming big games and new features on the site.
G2 Bingo provides all popular Bingo formats to suit every market and has a multi currency feature, pooled jackpots and linked games for maximized liquidity.
Mini games provide an increasingly important revenue stream for bingo operators. Chippendales: The Reel Deal, featuring the world famous Chippendales dancers, is one of the most popular side games embedded in G2’s bingo platform.
“Like poker, a bingo site needs liquidity in order to offer major jackpots and prizes,” said Sportingbet CFO Jim Wilkinson. “The quality of the games and player management capabilities are important factors and teaming up with GTECH G2 allows access to instant liquidity through their large poker and bingo networks.”
Sportingbet also licenses GTECH G2 software for its core business, sports betting. Their sports book operates on GTECH G2’s MarginMaker platform. GTECH G2 also provides poker software and poker network for European players at Sportingbet’s flagship poker site, ParadisePoker.com.
GTECH G2 is the only interactive gaming software and services provider that can supply a complete end-to-end solution including lottery, poker, sports betting, bingo, casino, skill games, instant games and back office systems to commercial and state-run operators.
