Gamesys Partners With SBTech To Launch Virgin Bet In The UK

Virgin Bet

Gamesys has launched a brand new sports betting website in the UK.

The games developer and casino operator, who also owns Virgin Games and other sites, launched the new website this week in collaboration with SBTech, a sports betting supplier.

According to reports, the new website is powered by the SBTech platform and uses the Virgin brand. It allows users to wager on sports games such as football, horse racing, tennis, cricket, American football, basketball, baseball, eSports, chess and more. Users can also wager on special events such as the US 2020 Election and the next UK General Election.

At the time, however, Virgin Bet is only available through its mobile website or through the dedicated Android mobile app. The site states that an iOS mobile app will be available soon, along with the full desktop website launch.

A representative for Virgin Bet informed us that the iOS app will be released over the next week while the team expects the desktop website to launch over the next three months. 

What They Say

In a statement, Simon Mizzi, the Marketing Director at Gamesys, said: “We’re excited to launch Virgin Bet into the world’s most competitive sportsbook market. We believe the Virgin brand has the ability to help change the industry for the better and we look forward to giving our customers the experience we feel they deserve.”

Richard Carter, the CEO of SBTech, said: “This is a significant announcement and achievement for the business which strengthens our UK presence. Gamesys is likely to become one of our largest customers over time and we’re delighted to be working with their management team whom we have long admired.

“Gamesys has put its faith in us due to our proven track record of delivering world-class sportsbook and casino platform solutions. This is a testament to our talented team, outstanding product portfolio and the exceptional results we are able to generate for our partners.”
