Virgin and Gamesys bring online bingo to New Jersey

Friday, March 13, 2015

Gamesys chief operating officer Lee Fenton is confident the gaming developer’s free newly launched 90 Ball Bingo offering on Virgin Casino in the US state of New Jersey will prove a hit.

The launch, which was announced this week, will offer real-money prizes of more than $90,000 (€85,400) per month.

By operating the UK’s leading bingo website – Jackpotjoy, which has more than four million players – as well as Sun Bingo, Caesars Casino and Heart Bingo, Gamesys’ credentials for the new 90 Ball Bingo offering are undisputed.

However, it is the free-to-play element of the new service that has grabbed particular interest this week, with free games being available every day via VirginCasino.com to mark the launch.

“Gamesys operates the leading online bingo site in the UK market and we’re confident that we can bring the best online 90 Ball Bingo experience to Virgin Casino in the US,” Fenton said.

“We’re always looking to deliver new entertaining experiences to our players and an exciting free game is a great way for us to do this.

“We’re proud to be the first in the US to offer licensed 90 Ball Bingo and we want to share it with as many players as possible.”

Virgin Casino launched in November 2013, becoming one of the first operators in the newly regulated New Jersey market. Virgin Casino features more than 70 casino games and is a partner of Tropicana Atlantic City Casino & Resort.

Tropicana’s own online casino and Virgin Casino posted earnings of $2.62m in February – a rise of 2.49 per cent on January, with Tropicana the only licensee to post an upturn in month-on-month figures.

Speaking about the new bingo game, a Virgin Casino spokesperson added: “Players simply need to register for an account at VirginCasino.com to claim a free strip of six tickets for each game.

“If they are the first to complete one line, two lines or a full house on any free 90 Ball Bingo ticket, they’ll be awarded a bonus money prize.

“Virgin Casino cash players have the option to buy up to 10 strips of tickets per game for a chance to win cash prizes and the Super Jackpot. Virgin Casino’s Super Jackpot pays out to anyone who completes a full house in fewer than 51 ball calls.”
