Austria – Greentube acquires BingocamsBy Phil - 3 July 2014
Greentube, a leading developer and provider of skill games for internet, mobile, PC and iTV and its parent company, the Novomatic Group, has acquired Bingocams, one of the most popular and innovative online bingo platforms, from Dazzletag Entertainment Limited.
The Bingocams integrated web platform combines online bingo with social media and video. Players can engage each other via two or three person private webcam chats during game play, thereby re-establishing the traditional social element of live, in-person bingo.
“Bingocams is a welcome addition to the Greentube line of iGaming solutions,” said Thomas Graf, CEO of Greentube. “This acquisition marks another major step forward for Greentube and further enhances Novomatic’s position of significance within the ever expanding new world of online gaming.”
Dazzletag revolutionized the online bingo industry when they introduced their no-download Bingocams application. The platform offers players a wide range of bingo games in a friendly, interpersonal environment that includes live chat among players and live chat with hosts. In addition, Bingocams offers a patented Live Win Moment that provides a visual playing experience that captures the social spirit of live bingo.
“This is a very exciting day for Dazzletag Entertainment Limited and we are delighted to join the Novomatic Group of Companies,” said Marin Muyser, Managing Director of Bingocams. “We believe there is a substantial opportunity to leverage our existing business now that we are part of the world’s leading gaming company. We have always aimed to roll out our unique bingo software internationally and with Novomatic’s/Greentube’s global presence we will be able to accelerate this strategy substantially.”
