20 May, 2009 (London, UK) — Virgin Games has announced that Virtue Fusion, the world’s leading supplier of Internet bingo solutions, is re-launching the Virgin Bingo platform (previously with St Minver), on the Virtue Fusion network.
The Virtue Fusion bingo network operates on an aggregated model so that all partners in the network will benefit from shared critical mass and large jackpots. Virtue Fusion, having pioneered the mini game, has the largest selection of games that can be played in the Bingo client. These games are also networked to provide the largest prize pools to be found on the web. Innovative networked games such as Marine Mayhem, Clover Rollover and Big Top Tombola have proven themselves to be highly popular with players.
Simon Burridge, CEO Virgin Games, comments: “It was important for Virgin to select a partner who could give our players the widest choice of game variants, jackpot sizes and price-points. Virtue Fusion’s network is undoubtedly the market leader in this respect. We are delighted to be joining the Virtue Fusion network and are looking forward to growing our business over the coming years.”
Bob McCulloch, C.E.O. Virtue Fusion (Alderney) Ltd comments: ‘We are delighted that Virgin Games has chosen Virtue Fusion’s industry leading software for their bingo offering. Virgin will benefit through our flexible networked approach to Bingo by offering small games that are good for communities whilst leveraging the power of the network by offering the biggest jackpots available.”
Simon Burridge continues: ‘We value Virtue Fusion’s flexible network model because we value the right to offer something different. VF’s network structure allows us to be just what we want whilst benefiting from the largest prize pools available online today.’
