UK bingo players will see new websites and a fresh software when The Sun and News of the World newspapers relaunch the Sun Bingo and NotW Bingo operations on August 26, 2008.
Owners the News Group Newspapers announced this week that the new sites will be powered by Gamesys, displacing former software provider Tombola. Gamesys is the software developer behind the successful and high profile Jackpot Joy brand.
Barry Sage, Head of Gambling at News Group Digital commented, “We’re excited to be re-launching our Sun Bingo and NotW Bingo products with such an established online gaming partner in Gamesys.
“Working with Gamesys will give us complete control over our bingo product. We will continue to improve and develop the product with our bingo players in mind.
“We think it is important to point out that we are not running Sun Bingo or NotW Bingo on the Jackpot Joy software. Gamesys have built a bespoke bingo platform that considers the needs of our players. They will be able to enjoy all their current favourite bingo games – Bingo 90, Bingo 80 and Bingo 75 and we also have some fantastic new games that will be exclusive to our players.
“We’d also like to reassure our bingo players that we will be keeping the price of our bingo cards at the same level as the existing site”.
