While we know Keith isn’t too happy with Virgin right now, we are kind of excited to announce that their gaming site, which allows players to play for cash and prizes, has hit the milestone of 1 million users.
Why is this such a good thing? Because it means that gaming is becoming more and more mainstream and competitive gaming is taking off in a big way. This makes us happy!
And here’s what the folks at Virgin had to say about the whole thing:
“We knew we were on to something and that our service had significant potential, we just didn’t realize it would take off as quickly as it did,” said Rob Segal, CEO of Virgin Gaming. “Our team continues to evolve the experience on a daily basis, and user feedback has been a key component in our upgrades. The responses have been resoundingly insightful and positive, so we’re very excited for our current direction and what the future holds, including the expansion of the biggest and best tournaments for mobile and social games.”
Adding to this:
“I think the value proposition of the Virgin Gaming platform has been resonating with our partners, and has been a critical component to our success this past year,” said Billy Levy, President and Co-Founder of Virgin Gaming. “We’re pleased to have publishers and retailers like PlayStation, EA SPORTS, 2K Sports, Ubisoft and GameStop supporting our vision of online competitive gaming.”
