Virgin Casino Now Available on a Mobile

Virgin Games, the leading online gaming company, has today launched a brand new offering for its players, the Virgin Casino Mobile. The mobile site will now allow members to experience the entertainment they get from Virgin Casino while they are on the move.

Virgin Games worked with leading mobile marketing agency, Somo, to develop the mobile offering using Virgin Games technology. The mobile product is integrated into the Company’s bespoke built gaming platform and will be developed into a multi-content proposition with games from a range of content partners.

The mobile product has been developed as a web application, allowing it to be instantly available to players without the need for App Store approval. Virgin Games has attached its single wallet system to the new mobile product, meaning its members use the same account to play at Virgin Casino, Virgin Bingo, Virgin Poker and now mobile casino. Players can register, manage their account, play for bonuses, deposit and withdraw seamlessly, whether they are on the web or on the move.

At launch, the mobile site will initially offer Microgaming’s mobile games content, including Thunderstruck and Tomb Raider slots, through the game developer’s Quick Fire integration process. However, Virgin Games plans to launch additional content suppliers into its mobile casino in a similar fashion to its internet offering, which provides a variety of games from a number of developers.

Simon Burridge, CEO of Virgin Games, commented: “With Smartphone penetration now exceeding 40% in the UK, players want and expect to be able to do on their phone what they do on their PC. With the launch of Virgin Casino Mobile we’re simply responding to this demand.

“While the gaming industry has been on the cusp of a mobile revolution for some time, 2011 has really been the year when the planets have aligned to make mobile gaming a more attractive proposition. For us we see it as the right time in the Company’s life, the industry’s life and the technology is ready. It’s important for us as a company to follow the Virgin philosophy of being a customer-centric brand. We put players at the heart of what we do and the mobile launch is yet another example of this. We can’t afford not to do this – it’s what our players want and it’s where the online gaming industry is heading.”

Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, said: "We are very happy to continue expanding our strong share in the mobile market by providing Virgin Games with our suite of mobile content through QuickFire. In the past, we have seen joint success with our QuickFire partnership with Virgin Games so we are confident that together we can seize all the opportunities the mobile gaming market currently presents to providers. Microgaming has the strongest portfolio of Flash assets in the industry and our slick, user friendly content is sure to be a big hit with Virgin Games’s fans.”

Virgin Casino Launches First Ever TV Advert

Virgin Casino has introduced its first ever TV advert campaign to the UK public. The advert seeks to bolster the position of Virgin Casino as the place that features amazing online slot games by promoting the stellar collection of slot machines that Virgin Casino currently offers, and the fact that it launches at least one brand new slot game each and every week.

The TV advert that lasts for a brief 20 seconds and is part of a half a million pound advertising campaign, uses a space theme to get new viewers to the fascinating world of Virgin Casino and features super popular online slot games such as Cleopatra, Da Vinci Diamonds and Monopoly Multiplier.

Oliver Wilson, Casino Acquisition Manager, said: “We had such a fantastic response from our first Virgin Bingo ad launched last year that we decided that this was the right way to go for Virgin Casino. Bingo received a huge increase in player registrations on the back of the first adverts aired late last year and this evidence suggests it makes absolute sense for TV to play a significant part in Casino’s marketing campaign.

“TV advertising is a new strategy for Virgin Casino and we believe a natural fit. Consumers like the familiarity and security of knowing they are playing with a trusted and reputable company. Being part of the Virgin brand helps this, while TV raises awareness of our existence and helps to reinforce that trust and brand awareness.”

The advert will hit TV screens on Monday November 1st, and prior to a national heavyweight TV rollout will run for two weeks during a direct response TV test campaign that will cover ITV in the Midlands, and ITV and Channel 4 in the South East.

The TV campaign will also get support by a variety of direct response activities including PPC and Display Media.
