MICROGAMING ANNOUNCES NEW FEATURES FOR BINGO NETWORK
ISLE OF MAN – Microgaming (www.microgaming.com), the world’s largest provider of online gaming software, is pleased to announce the forthcoming launch of a number of new and innovative features for its rapidly growing Bingo Network.
This May, Microgaming will be introducing a new feature which will allow players to buy tickets in advance for a selection of all the available bingo rooms, from a single bingo room. This allows for a more streamlined, user-friendly purchasing experience.
In a further release, bingo players can look forward to the launch of chat host avatars and player avatar management. These extra features will allow depositing players to choose from a range of gender based and object based avatars to represent them, while having a sense of interaction with the chat host. Giving players the opportunity to control the look and feel of their avatar will not only increase the social aspect of Microgaming’s Bingo offering, but afford them a heightened sense of community and customisation of their chat experience.
Lydia Melton, Head of Network Games at Microgaming, says: “We are continuing to roll out new features for our bingo platform, including headline gaming content such as Immortal Romance, which has moulded perfectly into the bingo demographic. We are very excited about our new operator and development pipeline. We feel confident that our new features will be well received by bingo players across the board.
“We have launched a range of new features for the Bingo Network this year and the feedback has been excellent. Our forthcoming avatar feature is another instance of Microgaming striving to improve our offering to ensure the very best gaming experience for players.”
In March, Microgaming released a Quick Lobby, which allows operators to drive players directly into a language and currency agnostic bingo lobby, as well as launching a comprehensive, fully customisable bingo loyalty scheme, based on both bingo and casino wagering.
