Gamesys – multi-platform gaming software to the iGaming industry

The Gamesys Group was founded by Noel Hayden in April 2001 with a small team of developers.

In 2006 they fought off intense competition to be named No.1 in the Sunday Times Tech Track 100 League Table, a list they’ve appeared on every year since. This feat reflects both the company’s capacity for sustainable growth and its remarkable resilience even during periods of financial instability.

After eight years, the Group’s leading brand Jackpotjoy.com has built an audience of over 3,000,000 members, creates 2 winners a second and pays out over £90 million every month.

The groups phenomenal success with the launch of Botemania, Spain’s number one Bingo site, the UK’s favourite newspaper gaming site, Sun Bingo and Jackpotjoy.com, the UK’s most popular gaming site has firmly established Gamesys as one of the UK’s most dynamic online gaming businesses.

2010 has already proved to be an exciting year for Gamesys. The group strengthened their entertainment offering with the launch of Heart Games in partnership with Global Radio, the UK’s premier radio company and the home of the UK’s leading commercial radio brands.

In March 2010 Gamesys launched Caesars Bingo, and announced their partnership with Harrahs, the largest gaming operator in the world and owner of Las Vegas’ most prestigious and famous Casino brands.

Europe’s share of this global remote market is expected to rise from £4.9bn in 2006 to £10.2bn in 2010 and the UK’s remote market (excluding lotteries) is expected to rise from £1.3bn in 2006 to £2.0bn in 20101.

In July 2007 the Gambling Commission reported that, excluding the National Lottery, 1 in 17 adults participated in remote gambling in the year to June 2007, rising to 1 in 12 including those playing the National Lottery remotely.

Soaring global broadband connections are driving remote gambling accessibility with Germany, France, and Italy all reporting over 10 million residential and small business connections by March 2007 and Spain fast reaching this milestone with currently 8 million such connections.

Over the past six years, by focusing on developing best of breed instant win, slots, bingo and casino games only, accessible through a proprietary single wallet/account, Gamesys – through its UK player focused brand www.jackpotjoy.com – has rapidly become one of the largest egaming companies in the world.

Gamesys is well placed over the next five years to take advantage of increasing player access to remote gambling across the world due to increasing internet connectivity, emerging mobile and interactive TV connectivity and a move by several countries to allow for greater competition in their remote gambling markets.
