Virgin Online Poker Social Gambling in the USA

Gamesys was named as the UK’s number 1 fastest-growing private technology company in the Sunday Times 2006 Tech Track 100. The group is rapidly expanding still with the recent ground breaking acquisitions that include Virgin Games and strategic partnerships with Tropicana Casinos, Caesars, News Corp and many more means Gamesys is now considered by the industry’s most prominent magazine eGaming Review, as the 5th most influential online gaming company in the world.

Now the firm is acting on its plan for the two branded partners to develop real money and social gambling propositions globally under the Virgin brand.

Starting with the beta launch for real money in the beginning of 2014 it debuted a free to play Virgin Poker offering on the Facebook social network. So far the reaction to that application has been positive with as many as 10,000 visitors playing in the space.

The app features the same “cash platform” as the one the company intends to use when the real-money launch in New Jersey comes online as part of the firm’s roll out with its partner the Tropicana Casino.

Paul Troy, Global Director of Brands for Gamesys explained, “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.”

Learning about the poker application is an essential part of the enjoyment and it will feature tournaments, ring games followed by their own version of the hugely popular “fast-fold” platform. Players can watch and learn from an interactive video series hosted by “Professor Jess” who takes players through the game basics and finer points of the poker app.

The London U.K. based social and online gaming content provider and developer realized over 4.3 billion in cash bets in 2012 which increased their revenue take by twenty five percent to £168 million.
