A press release that was posted on the LeoVegas Group’s website last weekend brings some highly exciting news for fans of online bingo.
The Group’s flagship brand, LeoVegas, is set to add bingo as a brand-new category within its games lobby.
According to the press release, the global bingo market is currently worth around €2 billion. However, online bingo only accounts for 23% of it.
Many gambling operators have enjoyed an increase in online customers over the past few years, and here in the UK, some players have made the switch from offline to online as a result of the COVID-19 lockdown keeping them at home. Therefore, the LeoVegas Group believes that “the potential for digitalisation is great” and that in the near future, “bingo will be shifting to the digital environment”.
The company is yet to confirm whether its forthcoming online bingo offering will be delivered as a bespoke solution or through an existing software provider such as Playtech or Pragmatic Play.
What we do know, however, is that LeoVegas plans to give its “broader and larger customer base” “a social, simple and fun game for people in all target groups”.
LeoVegas was launched in 2012 by Robin Ramm-Ericson and Gustaf Hagman and has won several industry awards since its conception.
It currently offers over 700 games, including slots, jackpot slots, table games, instant wins, and Must Fall Jackpots from a variety of software houses such as Microgaming, NetEnt, Yggdrasil, Quickspin, Thunderkick, and NextGen Gaming.
The LeoVegas Gaming Group also owns several other online casinos and gaming brands including Bet UK, Pink Casino, 21.co.uk, Slot Boss, Castle Jackpot, Crown Bingo, UK Casino, Slotto, and Legs Eleven.
The Leo Group is considered to be one of Europe’s leading gametech companies, and its growing global business now employs hundreds of people around the world.
