Gamesys online slot sites
The Gamesys Group started life in 2001, and was founded by Noel Hayden and by 2002, the company had launched JackpotJoy Bingo. A move to Piccadilly London was made in 2003, and by 2004, Gamesys had processed its 100 millionth wager. In 2005, membership topped 100,000, and in 2006, Gamesys won the Sunday Times Tech Track 100 Award. This was the year it also launched the Deal or No Deal slot.
Gamesys Company Info
In 2008, Gamesys secured a bright and shiny partnership with Sun Bingo, and 2009 saw the dawn of award-winning social gaming. Gamesys also paid out £1.3 million to a record-breaking jackpot winner.
Pulses started to race in 2010, with the launch of Heart Games – the partner site of the Heart Radio network. This was also the year of Caesar's Bingo launching, where one player won £1.9 million.
Barbara Windsor was recruited to become Jackpot Joy's Queen of Bingo in 2010, and she still fronts a heavyweight marketing campaign for this particular UK bingo site. By 2011, Jackpot Joy Sweden had launched, and in 2013, the company went live with Virgin Games.
So, the network may be relatively small – in late 2013, it comprised of Sun Bingo, Heart Games, Caesar's Bingo, Fabulous Bingo, Virgin Games, and Jackpot Joy – but the majority of these sites were already a household name before Gamesys took the brands stratospheric.
As the recession bit, people stayed at home to bet, and Gamesys reaped the rewards. In 2012, players staked £4.3 billion across the network, by 2013, this increased by 25%, or some £168 million.
The licensees of Gamesys sites are divided across several companies – Virgin Games's licensed operator is Nozee Ltd, which is registered in Gibraltar. Entertaining Play is the licensee of Fabulous Bingo, Heart Games, and Caesar's Games.
If you want to try the Gamesys innovation for yourself, Virgin Games is a good place to start. Nowadays, this is an umbrella site which encompasses casino, slots, and bingo. In a luxurious twist, you earn V* points as you play, which can be converted to Virgin Air miles. The contemporary black and red colour scheme sets Virgin Games far apart from its rivals – it's sleek, sexy, and is the artwork is a far cry from seminaked ladies reclining on a chaises longue.
In Caesar's Casino, there is a 200% first deposit bonus up to £1000. The site has a showbiz theme, and players can win trips to the City of Sin, where you can probably pay for a seminaked lady reclining on a chaises longue to take off the rest of her clothes.
