Gamesys Readies to Launch Social Poker App before NJ Real Money Launch
Last year Gamesys acquired the assets of Virgin Games as part of a partnership agreement to develop real money and social gambling games under the Virgin brand. Now, in preparation for its real money launch in New Jersey, Gamesys has announced its play for free version of its Virgin Poker product on Facebook.The app has already proved popular with over 10,000 players participating. The social app features the same “cash platform” as the one set to be used for the real-money launch in New Jersey. The app features tournaments, ring games and “fast-fold” games. There is also an interactive video series where players can learn how to play from “Professor Jess”.
The Global Director of Brands for Gamesys, Paul Troy, said, “Expanding the Virgin brand is an exciting opportunity and gives us real leverage on a global level, including the US market. Gamesys sees itself as an entertainment business and Virgin can also help achieve that.”
Recent years have seen Gamesys go from strength to strength. The company has received numerous awards for leading innovation and technology and in 2012 received the eGT Social Casino Product of the Year award amongst others.
