iOS and HTML5 versions in the near future
Online gambling provider Playtech debuted its first mobile bingo product on the Android operating system allowing mobile users access to their online accounts and additional play options.
Playtech's mobile bingo will give players a seamless experience between web and mobile platforms, access to bingo variants that include 90, 75, 80 ball and Deal or No Deal Bingo, mini-side games and more interactivity between players through a chat function.
Rhys Owen, head of Bingo at Playtech, said "This is a significant step for Playtech in terms of cementing our position as the leading supplier of bingo software in the industry as well as offering licensees the largest networked bingo and jackpot liquidity through a new and thriving channel. We've seen the trends in the sportsbook and casino arena's and its only logical that we develop a mobile offering which enables our partners to attract a new type of player as well as giving our licensee's an additional medium through which to engage with their players.
The company said it invested heavily in customer research to provide a user-friendly and entertaining product specifically based on the size constraints of mobile devices.
Further expansion on the iOS platform for iPhone and iPad and a HTML5 version are planned for roll out in the coming months.
