|Canadian online bingo provider Parlay Entertainment Incorporated received two awards at the inaguaral Online Bingo Awards presented at the Bingo Summit in London.|
The Ontario firm’s Parlay 4 bingo software received the gong for Best Online Bingo Software 2008 while its patent-pending side game BingoBets was recognised as Best Online Bingo Innovation 2008.
'We are very pleased to have won these two major bingo awards,” said Perry Malone, Chief Technology Officer for Parlay Entertainment.
“On behalf of our entire development and support team, I'd like to thank the online bingo industry for this recognition of excellence. We're especially proud because these awards were chosen by our industry peers who recognise that Parlay continues to blaze the trail in online bingo software innovation. It's a fantastic achievement and motivates us that much more to keep pushing the leading edge.'
The nominees were selected by a panel of recognised industry experts with the winners chosen by over 200 industry delegates at the Third Annual Online Bingo Summit. In addition, Parlay's licensee Paddy Power also won the award for Best Newcomer 2008.
Parlay used the Summit to unveil its latest innnovation, the Parlay 5 bingo platform, which includes a host of features to make it easier for operators to increase their liquidity by pooling players who speak different languages. The platform also allows players to use different currencies in a single bingo game along with allowing operators to fully differentiate their brands in an increasingly crowded marketplace.
'We had a very successful Bingo Summit where we launched Parlay 5,“ said Steve Cook, European Managing Director for Parlay Entertainment.
“With its foundation on our now award-winning software, we believe Parlay 5 will soon come to be regarded as the revolutionary next generation of bingo software.'
