|LONDON, UK - March 25th, 2008 - Parlay Entertainment Inc. (TSXV: PEI), the world's leading supplier of Internet bingo software, has signed a two-year agreement to become the platinum sponsor of the annual Online Bingo Summit, presented by Bullet Business.|
The arrangement sees Parlay playing a key role in the two-day event that brings together leading bingo operators and suppliers to discuss the future of online bingo. This year's conference, the 3rd Annual Online Bingo Summit, takes place June 17-18, 2008 at London's Royal Garden Kensington Hotel.
Parlay's support of the popular event affirms the company's leadership and commitment to the booming online bingo industry. Steve Cook, Parlay's European Managing Director, said: 'Online bingo is the fastest growing sector in i-gaming and continues to expand at an impressive pace. The Bingo Summit has become a must-attend event where the whole industry gathers to discuss the many new and exciting opportunities ahead. New market and media channels are emerging across Europe and this year bingo is set to fulfil its mass market potential both online and on TV.'
In addition to headlining the Summit, Parlay will showcase its new online bingo software, Parlay 5: Bingo Without Borders. Qualified attendees who pre-register with Parlay will be given a demonstration of the new product at the event.
Ravi Virpal, Bullet Business Director, said, 'This marks the third year that Parlay has stepped up to support the Online Bingo Summit and we are thankful they continue to demonstrate their leadership and commitment to the business of online bingo. We're also pleased that Parlay has chosen our event as the location to debut its new generation of bingo software, Parlay 5.'
In speaking about Parlay 5, Perry Malone, CTO of Parlay Entertainment, said, 'There is clearly strong demand for software that simplifies the process of creating and operating bingo games globally without being restricted by language or currency. That's why internationalisation features are the foundation of Parlay 5.'
Parlay 5 will allow operators who service players across multiple markets to increase liquidity by aggregating players into a central game. Players will be able to choose the language and currency of their account and they'll be able to see their wagers, wins and balances in their chosen currency, even if the game uses a different currency.
