Since its launch in 2005, Sun Bingo has become one of the UK’s big hitters in the online bingo industry, while Virtue Fusion currently provides bingo services for a wide range of companies, including Gala Bingo, Mecca Bingo, Paddy Power and William Hill. The News UK gaming site had originally been supported by Tombola, a deal that expired in 2008 when Gamesys, owned by Entertaining Playm, took the reins. However, after a lengthy association, Playtech saw its opportunity to poach Sun Bingo and leave Gamesys reeling from its largest hit since selling some of its other customer-facing brands to the Canadian Intertain Group in February 2015.
Speaking to Gaming Intelligence at the time of the deal, Playtech executive Mor Weizer said: “The Playtech-powered Sun Bingo will use cutting-edge technology to offer best-performing and highly innovative bingo and side games, with fantastic promotions and prizes and the industry's largest jackpots.” This is a fantastic partnership that is aligned with our ongoing strategy of working with the best operators and media brands in regulated markets.”
