Virtue Fusion Alderney, the burgeoning supplier of Internet bingo solutions to several major online gambling groups, cracked the Best Bingo Software 2009 award at the annual Online Bingo Summit held June 16 at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel in London.
Virtue Fusion’s CEO Bob McCulloch said, “We are absolutely thrilled with this honour which is a tribute to the vision of the company, its dedicated team of people and our focus on core activities. “
The news of the award has been followed by a slew of tributes to the Alderney company.
Joe Saumarez Smith of Crown Bingo said, "We are delighted to see Virtue Fusion win this award. Their software is undoubtedly the best of breed and they only seem to be pulling away from the competition in terms of improvements.”
“Virtue Fusion’s platform goes from strength to strength, year in and year out. We work closely with VF to ensure the highest standards in their products and technology and we are never let down,” said Angus Nisbet, Gaming Director, Rank Interactive.
Andy Harris, Head of eGaming at Ladbrokes, applauded the award and said, “Congratulations on the award. As a customer of Virtue Fusion for over three years now, it’s good to see your software receiving the industry recognition it deserves.”
Anna Conley, Bingo Operations Manager at William Hill, said, “It comes as no great surprise to us that VFA has been named Best Bingo Software provider, ever since we started to use them we have substantially increased our business and share of the market.”
"We are really delighted to see Virtue Fusion winning this award. It only confirms our thinking that they truly are a market leader in the provision of online bingo," added Joshua Morris, Commercial Director Virgin Games.
When asked what he thought were the major factors which contributed towards the success of the software, McCulloch replied, “It’s our process of continually evaluating our customers’ needs whilst maintaining our flexible network model which enables operators to retain their own identity. We look forward to Virtue Fusion striving for even higher excellence in the next year.”
Virtue Fusion made a big splash at the Summit. The giant helium filled bingo balls brought in by five enthusiastic bingo players – Legs 11, 69 Either Way Up, Naughty 40, Sweet 16, and Dancing Queen – definitely added a bit of ‘wow’ to an otherwise reserved summit.
