Online wagering software developer Playtech has announced that it has released a mobile bingo product that utilizes Google's Android operating system.
The new software will allow players to have a seamless experience between web and mobile versions of the company's popular bingo offering. Bingo offerings on the mobile app include Deal or No Deal Bingo, 90,75, or 80 ball variants, and mini side games. Player to player chat is also supported through the app.
Commenting on the app's release, Playtech Head of Bingo Rhys Owen said: "This is a significant step for Playtech in terms of cementing our position as the leading supplier of bingo software in the industry as well as offering licensees the largest networked bingo and jackpot liquidity through a new and thriving channel. We've seen the trends in the sportsbook and casino arena's and its only logical that we develop a mobile offering which enables our partners to attract a new type of player as well as giving our licensee's an additional medium through which to engage with their players."
Playtech also announced that it is working to expand on the iOS platform for both the iPad and iPhone. An HTML5 version of the bingo software is set to launch in the next few months.
