By 2008, Sun Bingo was rising over the horizon, and in 2009, social games won an innovation award. There was also a record-breaking £1.3 million jackpot winner, although Sun Bingo is no longer in the Gamesys Group as of 2015.
Pulses were set racing in 2010, with the launch of Heart Games, and also Caesar's Bingo. There was a record £1.9 million jackpot winner, and Barbara Windsor became star of the Jackpot Joy commercials. In 2011, Jackpot Joy Sweden was launched, and in 2013, the company acquired Virgin Games.
As of late 2013, the brand comprised of Jackpotjoy Bingo, Sun Bingo, Caesar's Casino, Heart Bingo, Caesar's Bingo, Fabulous Bingo, and Virgin Games.
Things are certainly on the up for this home-grown company – in 2012, there were £4.3 billion in cash bets placed, and group revenue increased by 25% to £168 million. Group wagering grew to over £4.1 billion in 2012.
Dissecting the corporate structure further, and we discover that the licensed operator of Virgin Games is Nozee Ltd, registered in Gibraltar. Entertaining Play is the licensed operator of Fabulous Bingo, Caesar's Casino, and Heart Games. This is also registered in Gibraltar.
If you want to experience Gamesys quality for yourself, try Virgin Games – this is the umbrella site which offers slots, casino, and bingo simultaneously. The casino has a highly-distinctive black and red vibe, and you earn V* points as you play, which can be converted to Virgin Air Miles.
Caesar's Casino offers new players a 200% first deposit bonus up to £1000, and encapsulates the thrill of Vegas, thanks to a showbiz theme, and regular prize trips to the city of sin itself.
