Playtech develops exclusive Love Island games for Sky Bingo
New Bingo room and slot game based on smash hit ITV2 reality show
London, June 12th 2018 – Playtech, the world’s leading omni-channel gaming company, has collaborated with Sky Bingo to produce two new games based on the smash hit reality show, Love Island – both exclusive to the Sky Bingo brand.
Launching just in time for the new series of the popular ITV2 programme, Love Island Bingo is a new 90-ball Bingo room. Designed to recreate the look and feel of the show, it incorporates some of its instantly recognisable visual elements, with the ticket area designed in a swimming pool style to recreate the island atmosphere. A Water Bottle bonus round, featuring an animated Love Island couple, adds extra excitement and gives players the chance to win an additional prize.
Continuing the theme is the slot game Love Island Date Night, which gives players the chance to win big with a private progressive jackpot. The game also features a fun bonus round where players get to go on a virtual date, picking a location, gift and even a chat-up line.
Love Island is a major hit for ITV, garnering a devoted following among viewers and much media attention. With viewer excitement hitting a new peak for series four, the timing is perfect for a big new game for Sky Bingo too.
“Everyone in the Playtech Bingo team is very pleased to have been chosen as the development partner for Sky Bingo’s exclusive range of Love Island games”, says Angus Nisbet, Managing Director of Digital Bingo, Playtech. “Love Island is a hugely popular show and brand, and I’m convinced fans of the show will love how our team has incorporated its unique style and cheeky sense of humour into these games.”
Daniele Phillips, Head of Marketing at Sky Bingo states, “With a strong identity and loyal fan base, Love Island is the ideal brand to bring to Bingo, and we’re delighted to offer these exclusive games to our players. There’s a great sense of fun and a very distinctive look and feel to Love Island, which has translated brilliantly to both the Sky Bingo room and Love Island Date Night. We’re sure fans will love playing these games just as much as they enjoy following the romantic dramas at the villa.”
Love Island Bingo and Love Island Date Night are available to play now exclusively at www.skybingo.com.
