In an announcement today it has been revealed that the webcam bingo site was acquired by Greentube who is the online gaming subsidiary of Novomatic.
Bingo Cams has been one of the most innovative of UK Bingo sites in the last few years, offering both great promotions and a unique social factor with its ability for players to view and chat to other players via webcam.
The timing of the buy is significant as it means that yet another online gambling giant is targeting the United Kingdom despite increased taxation costs which are about to take effect.
We are of course talking about the new Point of Consumption tax that online bingo operators will be obliged to pay.
Offshore Bingo operators will no longer be allowed to work within the United Kingdom without having to pay a duty on the play by UK Bingo players.
The addition of Bingo Cams unique bingo software to Novomatic is hugely significant for both bingo operators as well as UK bingo players.
From a player point of view, it means that Bingo Cams will in the very near future be able to offer an even wider range of games which include the popular Book of Ra Slots game.
Novomatic also has a range of games including Rummy, Backgammon and Solitaire that we can expect to be added to the Bingo Cams choice of games.
This is a shot in the arm for the UK Government who despite the increased taxation level are still seeing major operators still wanting to take part in the highly regulated UK Bingo market.
