PlayTech Launches New Mobile App

Playtech, the owner of VirtueFusion which powers some of the biggest online bingo sites in the industry, has just released the company’s figures for the first half of 2012. The released figures show increased revenues of 64%. Playtech said the company has had good performances in all of the sectors of their business including online bingo, casinos and sports betting platforms. At the start of the third quarter which is traditionally a slow time in the industry showed increases of 25% for Playtech.

Playtech credits several factors for the increases. The increase in mobile gaming which includes sports betting and the company’s live casino products are all credited for the company’s stellar performance. Playtech also said that the increased interest in social gaming has helped their operations. The financial announcement coincides with the company’s release of a new Android app for their Bingo product. Players will be able to play 90, 75, and 80 ball bingo games on their android phones. Customers can also play deal or no dal and deal bingo on their android phones.

When the new android application was launched Rhys Owen, Head of Bingo at Playtech stated “This is a significant step for Playtech in terms of cementing our position as the leading supplier of bingo software in the industry as well as offering licensees the largest networked bingo and jackpot liquidity through a new and thriving channel.” Owen also said by analyzing the trends in the sportsbook and casino sectors “it is only logical that we develop a mobile offering which enables our partners to attract a new type of payer as well as giving our licensees an additional medium through which to engage with their players.”

For bingo fans the new app means that they will no longer have to be at home to play. The first online bingo brand to launch the app will be William Hill. Playtech has also announced plans to release the new app for iOS and HTML in the near future. The new app also allows players to chat with other players while playing bingo. There are also miniature versions of some side games for mobile players. Screen size has hindered the development of side games for mobile players.
