The first of a new generation of online bingo games, Ruby Bingo, has been launched.

Ruby Bingo will be the first to join a new world-wide bingo network, BingoLand, which will become the online bingo venue of choice during 2003.

This announcement follows over 12 months of extensive research and development by market-leading gaming software developer, Playtech. BingoLand is taking the first bingo network license from Playtech and Ruby Bingo will be the first game on the new network.

Ruby Bingo will be operated by InterContinental Casinos Limited, adding to their portfolio of online gaming sites including market-leading brands such as BingoFun, Zany Bingo, Zodiac Bingo, USA Casino and New York Casino.

Ruby Bingo is the first bingo game to be developed specifically for the new generation of online bingo players, with compelling graphics and animation, fully featured chat with player photos, powerful tools to enable players to review past games or buy into future games and even to continue playing when their PC is turned off. As well as classic American 75-ball bingo, Ruby Bingo includes built-in scratch cards, slots, multi-line, multi-reel progressives and video poker. Additional features include unparalleled player reward, referral and affiliate programs.

After six weeks of extensive testing with over 200 experienced players, Ruby Bingo has met and exceeded expectations - already receiving hundreds of accolades from players involved in the test program.

All players joining Ruby Bingo will receive a 100% bonus on their first deposit and a 50% bonus on all other deposits - equalling the best in the industry. These bonuses, combined with the comprehensive player reward program will make Ruby Bingo the most attractive bingo venue on the Internet.
