Virgin Games Acquired by Gamesys in Recent Deal

Virgin Games, the online gaming network that includes popular sites such as Virgin Casino, Virgin Poker and Virgin Bingo, has been acquired by Gamesys. The purchase was finalized and announced earlier this month, but occurred without much fanfare or significant changes to the Virgin Games network.

Until now Virgin Games was owned by Virgin itself, operating since 2004 as a part of Sir Richard Branson's massively successful corporation. The release of a statement from both Virgin Games and Gamesys (on 7th January, 2013) announced changes to the operation, though, revealing that software developer and online gaming provider Gamesys had acquired the business. The statement offers scant details on the acquisition, but does describe how Gamesys plans to move forward with their new gaming network. The Virgin brand will, apparently, remain associated with the network while Gamesys reconfigures the site's software to better fit with the rest of its social and real-money gaming offerings. The updates in question are likely the real reason for the site overhaul that has recently been announced at Virgin Casino.

All of the changes listed above are set to be implemented by the end of the month of March and the unveiling of the revamped Virgin Casino. Other, more precise details of Gamesys' purchase have yet to be disclosed, meaning that the purchase price involved with acquiring Virgin Games is still unknown. More information should become available in the weeks and months to come.

Virgin Casino Awards More than £50000 to Jackpot Winner

A lucky Virgin Casino player has just received a windfall that will change her life after triggering a jackpot that awarded more than £50,000. This sum came as the result of a fortunate virtual spin and now marks one of the largest payouts in Virgin Casino's history.
                The winner, known by her handle of "JJ", was awarded with the £50k award by playing on the site's well loved 100,000 Pyramid video slot. Hailing from North Yorkshire, JJ had been a Virgin Casino member for more than a year and had enjoyed "quite a few smaller wins" before her 100,000 Pyramid windfall. JJ reported that "when all five reels dropped in and the amount [began] rising" she "could not believe it." She plans to pay off her bills, buy a new car and put the rest in the bank. 100,000 Pyramid was developed by software provider International Games Technology and features fifteen paylines. Players are able to wager amounts ranging from a penny to £30 on each spin, the line multiplier allowing for fifteen opportunities at increasing the payout by up to 100,000 times the initial bet.
                Virgin Casino's Warren Eloff told press that JJ's win represents "the first time that anyone has hit the top prize" on 100,000 Pyramid and that the site is "excited that the prize has gone to one [its] regular players." 100,000 Pyramid is one of the newest entries to the more than 350 games on offer from Virgin Casino.

New Games — Big Kahuna and What On Earth — Debut at Virgin Games Casino

Virgin Games has officially launched two new, exciting slot games: Big Kahuna and What On Earth. The titles bring even more fun to members of the website and the chance to win big through extra bonus features.

The two new games have been designed by industry renowned developer Microgaming in a partnership with Virgin Games. The first, Big Kahuna is a jungle-themed slot title with five reels and nine paylines that takes its name from the totem picture that provides the game’s wild symbol. The casino-styled internet game also features a monkey symbol that serves as a scatter system, periodically appearing on various lines and offering an extra reward. Big Kahuna also comes with the Volcano Bonus (where players have to take a chance on picking the correct offering that will save an island from an eruption) and the Pick a Mask Bonus (where players guess at which of ten masks hide a reward). The second slot, What On Earth, is another five reel and nine payline game with a maximum jackpot of 37,500 coins, a wild symbol and more scatter icons. It also features two extras and an alien abduction theme.

The two new games offer lucky players plenty of opportunities to take home lots of cash and should prove a hit with Virgin Games fans. Both Big Kahuna and What On Earth are available now at Virgin’s casino site.

Virgin Bingo Offer a Free Gift Giveaway

Last weekend saw Virgin Bingo players rewarded with a few chances at some complementary prizes as a part of the overwhelming new trend of free bingo sweeping the online industry. Not wishing to fall behind on the times, Virgin Vie partnered up with the online gaming network to secure a few choice prizes for devotees of the site.

The giveaway was open to all members of the site that had purchased £50 or greater in bingo tickets between Wednesday, 15
th July and the evening of Sunday, 19th July. The money did not require a straightforward £50 deposit but only the purchase of tickets, meaning that a player who had won cash in a bingo game and used it to buy up entrance to other games would still be eligible for the offered prizes. The giveaways were picked from two summer-themed options: either a Sunshine Self-Tanning Moisturizing Spray or Sun Goddess Body Crackle. Members of the site that qualified for the gifts were mailed one of the two products at the giveaway period’s end on Sunday night.

Virgin Bingo’s take on the free bingo trend was quite a bit different from those competing efforts offered up by other UK brands such as Foxy or Wink Bingo but the effect was solid enough to stir up some healthy traffic for the network. While the company still seems to be resisting the move toward a greater number of no-cost bingo games, the guarantee of a few excellent prizes for purchasing tickets from the site is a novel concept just the same.
