dot com Upgrades Bingo Software

17 November 1999
dot com Entertainment Group Inc., makers of CyberBingo software, has announced several improvements in the operation and functionality of its bingo technology and related information systems.

According to Perry Malone, dot com's head of technology, the company has "developed new systems and formats which create amazing deliverability of services, such as advertising, instant game development, promotional activities and owner/operator control, which significantly reduce programming time and place virtually all operating control with the licensee." Several enhancements to the software have been made at the request of its licensee, the CyberBingo Corporation of Antigua, as well. "Other comparable software products generally do not contain this advanced technology, which we will now offer as a standard part of our software to new clients and customers," Malone added.

The enhancements will translate to dot com's new Bingo Builder Program, allowing licensees to configure their game systems' operations using a simple "drag and drop" interface. Licensees will be able to customize their games without the help of dot com software programmers.

Additionally, the newest CyberBingo Version 4.6 contains upgrades, like "dynamic content", that will allow operators to change game patterns, bingo callers, sounds and animations without downloading new versions of the software. Other improvements include integrated chat and an underlying communications infrastructure which the company says further improves system performance and reliability.

Additionally, a new partnership between dot com and e-commerce provider First Atlantic Commerce of Bermuda for the development and improvements of a custom Java-based interface for Microsoft NT systems will enhance the reliability of FAC's online processing of player purchases and delivery of related services.
