Virgin Games: Relocates to Guernsey
Virgin Games, the online gaming division of the Virgin Group Ltd., is moving from London to the Channel Island of Guernsey. The move will cost more than £1 million, or $1.9 million.
Virgin Games, which has operated out of Hammersmith, England, for four years, has three gaming areas: Virgin Poker, licensed in Malta, Virgin Bingo, licensed in Gibraltar, and Virgin Casino, which is licensed and regulated by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission.
Simon Burridge, chief executive of Virgin Games, said the move to Guernsey will facilitate a much simpler solution for customers.
"Virgin Poker, Casino and Bingo are separate, so if you want to play you have to re-register for each one," Mr. Burridge said. "We have made it about as difficult for our customers as we can. Now we are bringing it together so that it will be a much more simple set-up. That is really important to us and as part of that we are relocating our head office to Guernsey."
