arlay has been nominated in the Best Online Bingo Software category for its industry-leading product, Parlay 4, and in the Best Online Bingo Innovation category for its patent-pending side game, BingoBets.
The nominations were suggested by a panel of seven recognized industry experts who selected the categories and chose the nominees for each category.
The Parlay 4 bingo platform has virtually set the standard for excellence in online bingo software with other bingo developers emulating its layout, features and functionality. Parlay 4 was the first bingo software to introduce tabbed components, a larger chat area, auto-purchase and multiple ways to select bingo cards.
It also introduced the world's first bingo side game, BingoBets, which allows players to place up to nine different wagers on every bingo game they play. The game offers increased excitement because fortunes change with every number called. It also adds visual flair, offers more chances to win and increases bingo revenue for operators.
Steve Cook, MD for Parlay Entertainment, said: "The Bingo Awards are in recognition of the phenomenal growth of the online bingo industry and an acknowledgement of the key players that aspire to be the best of the best, and stand out from the rest. At Parlay, we continually strive to provide innovation on a quality software platform for our customers. Launching BingoBets is another example that we are meeting the needs of our licensees.”
Parlay Entertainment's licensee Paddy Power has also been nominated for Best Newcomer Bingo Site. The award winners will be decided on by the more than 250 delegates who are expected to attend the 3rd Annual Online Bingo Summit.
