Thursday July 3, 2014 : GREENTUBE ACQUIRES BINGOCAMS
Innovative bingo platform combines social media and video for realistic live bingo experience.
Austrian online gambling software developer Greentube, a subsidiary of the Novomatic Group, has announced the acquisition of Bingocams – a popular and innovative online bingo platform – from Dazzletag Entertainment Limited.
The Bingocams integrated web platform combines online bingo with social media and video. Players can engage each other via two or three person private webcam chats during game play, thereby re-establishing the traditional social element of live, in-person bingo.
“Bingocams is a welcome addition to the Greentube line of i-gaming solutions,” said Thomas Graf, CEO of Greentube.
“This acquisition marks another major step forward for Greentube in the ever expanding world of online gaming.”
The Dazzletag platform caused a stir in the internet bingo industry when it introduced the no-download Bingocams application.
The platform offers players a wide range of bingo games in a friendly, interpersonal environment that includes live chat among players and live chat with hosts. In addition, Bingocams offers a patented Live Win Moment that provides a visual playing experience that captures the social spirit of live bingo.
Marin Muyser, managing director of Bingocams, said Thursday: “We believe there is a substantial opportunity to leverage our existing business now that we are part of the world’s leading gaming company. We have always aimed to roll out our unique bingo software internationally and with Novomatic's/Greentube's global presence we will be able to accelerate this strategy substantially."
