Integrating the gaming experience with social media is exactly the direction the gaming industry needs to travel in the future. Parlay Entertainment is one company that has been making plenty of noise early in this new year. Recently the company signed 6 new customers to their PGS network and now they have their eyes set on the social network.
Online bingo platform provider Parlay Entertainment Inc. and Wonder Interactive have joined forces to integrate features of the WonderBingo Facebook application including social networking content and features, virtual currencies and community assets with the Alderney Parlay Game Services network.
Parlay took steps to create a unique online bingo offering by combining the community features like: rankings, friending, updates and profiles, and free-play bingo for cash prizes used within the Facebook app with Parlay’s bingo technologies.
Perry Malone, CTO and co-founder of Parlay commented, “WonderBingo is just another example of how Parlay continues to drive innovation within the online bingo industry.”
“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,” Jacob Fuller, President of Wonder Interactive, added. Fuller continued, “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.”
