Virgin Games recently announced that it will be providing its customers at Virgin Casino with a new platform for mobile gaming. This is intended for players who want access to casino games on-the-go. The mobile casino games will be powered by Microgaming’s QuickFire software, the same software which powers All Slots Mobile, Spin Palace Mobile and 32Red Mobile Casino.
The CEO of Virgin Games, Simon Burridge, stated that the introduction of a new gaming platform was a reaction to a rise in demand for it from customers. He went on to say that in the United Kingdom alone, the percentage of smart phone users is more than 40%.
These users want to perform the same tasks on their phones as they do on their PC’s – online gaming included. Burridge said that 2011 has seen big developments in the field of online gaming and he feels that it is the right time for the company to enter the field.
Games on Offer through QuickFire
The Virgin Mobile website is a platform that is accompanied by the Virgin Poker, Virgin Bingo and Virgin Casino sites. The site features some of the best Microgaming casino games, powered by QuickFire. Some of these are widely played slots games such as Mermaids Millions, Tomb Raider and Thunderstruck.
In addition to this, games with progressive jackpots such as Major Millions and Mega Moolah will also be offered. For those who prefer table games, European Blackjack and Roulette will be available. Some other games on offer are Dragon’s Fortune, Bingo Bonanza and Jacks or Better Video Poker. All of these games will be accessible through tablet PCs and smart phones. These include iPads, iPhones and Android devices.
Requirements for Players
Players who already have accounts at Virgin Games will not have to sign up for a new one at Virgin Mobile. They can use their current account details to access the site. However, first time players at Virgin Games can register and will be granted immediate access to nearly 300 games that are on offer at both Virgin Mobile and Virgin Casino. All members will be able to claim a bonus of 100%, valued at up to £25, when they use the mobile gaming platform for the first time
