London: May 23rd 2016 – Playtech, the world’s leading Omni-channel gaming software, systems and services supplier, made it a clean sweep at this year’s WhichBingo awards winning both Best Online Bingo Software and Best Unique Bingo Game.
Voted by bingo players, the awards give a true reflection as to the best products in the online and mobile bingo market.
Playtech collected the award for Best Unique Bingo Game for its innovative Cash Cubes game, a new-speed mobile bingo variant, designed for players who enjoy shorter, faster bursts of mobile gameplay. The cutting-edge game is Playtech’s first networked single ticket, multi-stake bingo game, available in HTML5 format across mobile, tablet and desktop.
Playtech’s award success did not stop there, with the Best New Bingo Site going to 8-ball ‘Bingo with Kerry’. The award was accepted by reality television star, Kerry Katona (pictured), whom the site is based upon. The site is one of Playtech Bingo’s pioneering HTML5 bingo skins.
Playtech is proud to offer the industry’s most extensive portfolio of true Omni-channel bingo games, variants and side-games, across the UK’s biggest and most diverse bingo network. Playtech has won a number of prestigious awards for its leading bingo offering, with the most recent win further adding to its popularity and success among players.
Among the list of winners, Playtech licensee Gala Bingo was crowned Best Bingo Site, Best Mobile Bingo Experience and Best Playtech Bingo Site, all voted for by regular bingo players. Playtech works closely with Gala Bingo, offering an extensive library of best-of-breed bingo games and providing a fully personalised bingo and gaming experience. As a result, Daniel Phillips, Playtech VP UK Operations, presented the operator with the ‘Playtech Network Award’, further celebrating the successful partnership.
Phillips commented: “The WhichBingo Awards further showcase our dedication to innovation, driven by close partnerships with our licensees and placing the player at the heart of everything we do: to deliver an unrivalled online bingo offering and the ultimate gaming experience for every type of player no matter what channel or device they use.
“It is always a great pleasure for Playtech to be recognised and rewarded at the industry’s leading online bingo awards and many thanks to the organisers for a great evening.”
