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.
