What’s New With Virgin Games
2014 was the year of the re-brand. Virgin Games, a gaming outfit owned and developed by Gamesys – not to be confused with Virgin Gaming, on whom we have run stories previously – has been altering its services and style for quite a while now, and the results are promising, the re-branding causing excitement to run through the ever-swelling ranks of the online gaming community.
Since mid-2014 the company has been running a Facebook browser-based app within which players can enjoy games of poker with their friends and strangers, all for real cash and other prizes. The company’s new site, Virgin Poker, has been heavily geared towards the provision of tournaments and challenges, all of these being geared towards providing for the poker kicks of an incredibly disparate variety of players. Hardcore card sharks, weekend players and first-timers can all enjoy playing with other people of their own skill, making this a far more all-encompassing poker site than many other contenders.
Players can also play games on Virgin Games’ site itself, the games here being far more diverse than the poker or console-based brands within the company. Here, the re-branding has seen as converging a number of different types of gaming into one product. There are games and tournaments for all skill levels, social functionalities and a heavy focus on promotions, bringing the flagship site in line with Virgin Poker.
With a massive number of slots, casino and bingo-based titles on offer, there’s something for everyone on this site, and indeed it has proved a popular one among mainstream, casino-oriented gamers. The wealth of promotions also hosted on the site has also proved incredibly popular; right now players can enjoy cashback rewards, vouchers, tell-a-friend bonuses and buy-one-get-one-free deals, as well as a shockingly large 200% welcome bonus for new players. With all of these delightful sweeteners, Virgin’s place in the online gaming world has likely been solidified for many years to come.
Keeping on top of emerging trends has been a hallmark of Gamesys’ approach to the online gaming scene of late, and we can conceivably see them occupying a special place in the hearts of gamers for a quite some time. Virgin is one of the world’s best known brands, mixing popular culture and classiness in to one wonderful, recognisable name. As Gamesys takes the torch of the Virgin name and bringing it into the twenty-first century of gaming, this might be a world-leading partnership!
