Parlay Entertainment and Wonder Interactive to Launch the Internet’s First Integrated Social Bingo Application
Leveraging off the tremendous success of WonderBingo on Facebook, Parlay and Wonder Interactive combine social media features into Parlay5.
OAKVILLE, CANADA - Parlay Entertainment Inc. (TSXV: PEI) and Wonder Interactive are pleased to jointly announce the launch of the Internet’s first truly integrated social bingo application, which is scheduled for launch in mid-February 2011.
In November 2010, WonderBingo launched one of the first multi-player bingo applications on Facebook. The project delivered innovative social networking content and features, virtual currencies and community assets, and was integrated into the Parlay Game Services North America network. Within three short months, WonderBingo now boasts more than 400,000 application subscribers, over 85,000 ’Likes’ and some 2,000+ new daily subscribers.
Given the success of WonderBingo on Facebook, Wonder Interactive and Parlay have now created an innovative Internet bingo offering that combines the community features and assets used within the Facebook application with Parlay’s award-winning bingo technologies – all within a true online gaming environment. WonderBingo will be delivered on Parlay5 technology from the Alderney-based Parlay Game Services network.
Some of the prominent features of WonderBingo, include the following:
* Community Rankings
* Gifting & Achievements
* Friending, Updates & Profiles
* Award Winning Bingo Games
* Free-Play Bingo For Cash Prizes
“We are very pleased with the success of WonderBingo and we look forward to the launch of this truly unique gaming product for Internet bingo,” said Jacob Fuller, President of Wonder Interactive. “We acknowledge that the success of our WonderBingo product on Facebook clearly demonstrates the demand for social content. We expect excellent reception of these same features within an Internet bingo gaming environment and believe that the social hooks within the game will keep our players faithful to WonderBingo.”
“WonderBingo is just another example of how Parlay continues to drive innovation within the online bingo industry,” said Perry Malone, CTO and Co-founder of Parlay. “Although many others have followed and have done well in their own right as online bingo has grown, Parlay continues to show thought leadership as it drives new opportunities in this rapidly evolving gaming sector.”
