Gamesys for bingo
Gamesys bingo network is not extensive, but they do power some huge standalone bingo sites, including the hugely-popular sites branded on behalf of The Sun newspaper and its sidekick Fabulous magazine. The Sun deal was a major coup for Gamesys, who took over the brand from Tombola and turned it into the biggest online bingo site in the UK. Both Sun Bingo and Fabulous Bingo are flourishing, with each offering an above-average range of side games to complements its bingo rooms.
Gamesys also power Caesars Bingo, owned by the eponymous Las Vegas casino hotel brand, as well as Heart Games, part of the same organisation that runs the popular Heart FM radio station in the UK.
Gamesys for slot games
As well as some great bingo rooms Gamesys offer some outstanding side games: There’s a 3d pop-up book-style Alice in Wonderland-themed game with 100 win lines, along with the lip-smacking Jalapeno Racers with its extra-rapid bonus round that still delivers, pound for pound, more excitement than the vast majority of newer slots despite its longevity.
Big player in the technology industry
Gamesys were named as the UKs fastest-growing private technology company in 2006 by The Sunday Times, and their current MD is Noel Hayden, ideally placed at the head of the business as a self-confessed gaming freak after a Space Invaders cabinet game was installed in his father’s hotel whilst he was still a child.
The company took over £3.2 billion in bets in 2011, making them not quite the largest player in the industry in terms of the number of sites they power, but one of the most significant nonetheless.
