LONDON, May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Playtech (LSE: PTEC), the international designer, developer, licensor and provider of software and services for the online, mobile, TV and land-based gaming industry, announces the launch of 8 new slot games for mobile bingo. The games are mini-embedded in the Bingo pages on mobile and also available in full screen mode across the HTML5 and native offering.
Rhys Owen, Head of Bingo at Playtech, commented: "As our mobile Bingo is growing exponentially, it has become a key focus in our product development this year. With the launch of the HTML5 solution along with Native iOS and Android operating systems, we have begun rolling out the product to our customer base. Using an HTML5 template we are able to quickly plug in existing assets from our popular catalogue of games, bringing us much closer to completing a consistent offering between our web and mobile solutions. If you want mobile Bingo, Playtech's Virtue Fusion is the best provider in the market."
In addition to Mobile Bingo, Playtech has recently launched a fully regulated product offering in Spain. This marks another step in expanding the Bingo offering into newly regulated territories, taking the success of the dot com network model into new markets. The Spanish offering is the 3rd network Virtue Fusion manages in addition to the dot com network and the Italian Bingo network.
Playtech develops unified software platforms and content for the online and land-based gaming industry, together with providing a range of ancillary services such as marketing, hosting and CRM services.
The Group's capabilities enable the delivery of an integrated software or turnkey solution, with players accessing online, broadcast, mobile and server-based gaming terminals through a single account.
New licensees include existing online operators upgrading or diversifying their offering, land-based casino groups, government sponsored entities such as lotteries, and new entrants making their online gaming debut, particularly in newly-regulated markets.
Founded in 1999, Playtech is listed on the London Stock Exchange and has over 2,700 employees located in nine countries. Its leading gaming applications include casino, poker, bingo, sports betting, live, mobile and social gaming, casual and fixed odds games.
