Many of you may be asking, what’s happened to Virgin Poker?, well I hope to give some answers here:
Virgin Games have removed Poker from their site, after being acquired by Gamesys, but keeping the Virgin branding.
After the new Virgin games website went live on January 29th, the games now available are; Slots, Casino, and Bingo.
Virgin Games have said that they are going to look at adding a Poker platform sometime in the future, but for the near future there seem to be no signs of it returning.
For players that have money in Virgin Poker accounts, that money can be redeemed by logging into your Virgin Games wallet, and withdrawing the funds from there. When players sign up, they are asked to agree to new Terms and Conditions for the site.
Gamesys, the group that has acquired Virgin Games, was created in 2001 have taken on Virgin Games in an attempt to widen their reach in the European online gaming market, with Virgin Games being around since 2004, they certainly will have a large fanbase and a whole new audience.
Talking about the acquisition, Richard Branson said: “We are delighted the Gamesys Group has acquired Virgin Games and formed a partnership to build a global games business. Simon Burridge and his team built a strong platform and now with the help of the Gamesys Group we can expand further internationally.”
Until Virgin Games announce a new Poker platform, there are many other Poker sites available to play on, but don’t think you’ve seen the last of Virgin Poker yet..
