LONDON, December 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Virgin Games, the leading online gaming company, has today launched Virgin iPad Casino, the industry's first stand-alone casino web app designed exclusively for iPad and tablets. The launch of this app means that Virgin Casino's players now have complete choice of medium, with games available for desktop or laptop computers, mobile, and now iPad or tablet.
Virgin Casino's web app is accessible from any web browser and has been built to respond to the exponential rise of the tablet as a primary entertainment device. It uses the latest Touch User Interface technology to provide responsive swipe navigation designed exclusively for tablet screens.
Pierrick Leveque, Head of Mobile & Tablet at Virgin Games, commented: "Virgin iPad Casino is a cornerstone in our bid to provide our players with a seamless entertainment experience, whatever device they use to access our games. Tablets have a big - maybe the biggest - part to play in shaping digital entertainment in the coming years, and we aim to prove it with the first tablet casino website experience that feels just right. Built as a web app, our iPad site is free from the shackles of app store release schedules and accessible from any web browser. This allows us to launch new games whenever we feel like it. And we feel like it very often."
At launch, Virgin iPad Casino has a selection of 16 casino games from IGT and Microgaming, including Elvis and Cleopatra slots, roulette, blackjack, poker, bingo and progressive jackpots, with more to come. The iPad/tablet site was built in-house and is plugged in to the Virgin Games single wallet - players can use the same account to play on PC or Mac, mobile, and now tablet, and share the same promotions, benefits and loyalty V*POINTS.
Launched in 2004, Virgin Games is one of the UK's leading online gaming sites.
