New bingo social feature launched
 
888.com's b2b subsidiary Dragonfish has added a new social feature to its bingo networks through the addition of virtual gifts.
 
The new feature allows players to add virtual gifts to their chat rooms, which they are then able to send as part of internet exchanges. Using the feature is paid for out of Loyalty Points rather than the player’s bankroll.
 
The virtual gifts consist of a small image or short animation selected from a number of categories, which are then displayed in the chat area. The wide variety of gifts includes flowers, a glass of beer, a surprise box and many more.
 
The chat window has been redesigned to accommodate a gift button that opens a window and allows players to select a gift for the player of their choice. Gifts can also be sent and received by chat moderators. The addition will be available across some 70 skins on the Dragonfish bingo networks.
 
Dragonfish md David Zerah, said: “The virtual gift concept is a fun feature within chat that enhances the community feel and social interaction amongst players. The concept has proven popular in social gaming environments and will add value to the chat features on the Dragonfish bingo platform.”
