Launch follows several successful months of operation in fun mode

Playtech, an online gaming software provider, has announced that its Italian bingo network has launched in real money mode.

Playtech already has a significant presence in the Italian market with the successful iPoker.it network, establishing a reputation for pioneering excellence in newly regulated markets, the company said. In accordance, the latest bingo venture has been designed to fully comply with Italy’s gaming authority, the Amministrazione Autonoma dei Monopoli di Stato (AAMS).

The launch of the bingo network in real money mode follows several successful months of operation in fun mode. With existing operators migrating to real money mode, and more joining in the near future, Playtech’s bingo network is set to become a leading network in the growing Italian market, the company said.

Playtech’s bingo network is run by a professional and experienced team, offering its players the excitement and community atmosphere of a real bingo hall. The bingo client provides players with an enriching experience through its vivid design, first-class graphics and animation, and authentic audio. These features, together with the other extensive tools on offer, provide players with lines of fun, while licensees enjoy the profits.

The newly revamped bingo client is designed to replicate the community atmosphere of a land-based bingo hall, and allows players to configure their own personal settings, from caller voice and speed to autodaub and animation. The client has been tailored to meet the needs of the Italian market, and players enjoy social chat hosted by Italian chat moderators.

"Following the great success of the iPoker.it network and the bingo network in fun mode, we expect the real money mode to perform just as well, with the network becoming one of the leading bingo networks in Italy," said Moty Arcuschin, Playtech's head of bingo. "We have invested heavily into the bingo offering, including customizing the product to appeal to the local Italian audience, and are obviously fully compliant with the relevant regulatory bodies. Working with the leading gaming operators in Italy, Playtech continues to prove itself as the most successful pioneer of the emerging markets."
