16-09-2009 (Stockholm, Sweden) – This week, Hem Bingo, (www.hembingo.com) Swedish media company United Media ‘s bingo site, was the first to upgrade to GTECH G2’s new improved Bingo 2.2 software. Unveiled this week at the EiG in Copenhagen, Bingo 2.2 has a host of new features including multi currency, linked games and a suite of mini games incorporated into the bingo game window
“GTECH G2 has made a multi-million Euro investment in its Bingo product,” said Atul Bali, President of GTECH G2. “With the combined resources of Boss Media and St Minver, two of the companies acquired last year to form our interactive gaming division and with ongoing investment in key products like our bingo network, we will continue to lead the way in terms of product innovation and services.”
Bingo 2.2 allows clients to pool liquidity and maximizes the jackpots in the bingo rooms through its linked games and multi currency functionality. In addition, it offers a fantastic suite of multi lingual mini games launching from the game window including mini progressive slots, table games, video poker and scratch cards. The Bingo software and mini games portfolio will be updated quarterly with innovative new feature functionality, to ensure that G2 Bingo remains at the cutting edge of bingo front and back end development, catering to the needs of both the Bingo player and licensee.
“In early 2010, we plan to merge Boss Media’s bingo partners with St Minver’s International Bingo Network to create one large combined network using G2 Bingo software and operated from our Bingo hub in Gibraltar,” said Alison Digges, Group Head of Bingo for GTECH G2. “Pooling the liquidity of over 80 bingo partners will make the GTECH G2 Bingo network one of the leading networks in 2010”.
