Well, it was all announced at the beginning of the month.
Online Casino games developor Gamesys has bough Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Games (no-one’s letting on how much it set them back). Gamesys has also signed a ‘long-term deal’ to develop real money and social gambling sites, globally, under the Virgin brand. (They have already launched a new Facebook app called ‘Bingo Friendzy’, the first real money gaming & gaming app on Facebook.
And today (this morning to be precise), the new Virgin Games site went live?
So What’s it like? How does it compare to the previous version.
Well, Virgin was all about having multiple software developers on its site, so this was a casino where you could play IGT and Microgaming games, for example. So you could spin the reels on Cleopatra and the Dark Knight Slot.
Which are The Best Games on The New Gamesys Virgin Casino?
Gamesys have their own proprietary games, so these are going to be on the new site (plus they run the leading online bingo site in the UK: Jackpotjoy).
We understand that the IGT games are going to stay on the site, but the Microgaming ones are coming off- probably due to a clash of wills between these 2 software companies.
