Little is known about Mandalay Gaming Holdings. They are a relatively new online gaming company in that they only launched their first online gaming site in 2009, and more often than not it appears as though Mandalay likes to take the back seat when it comes to running their business. Dragonfish powered by Cassava are known to provide most of the software behind many of Mandalay Gaming Holdings’ online gambling sites, although the design of each and every one of their sites is strictly down to themselves.
Last year, Mandalay Gaming Holdings Ltd. announced that they had managed to secure a deal with IGT to provide them with more than thirty online casino games for their online gambling sites, potentially upsetting their deal with Cassava-Brigend. Mandalay are also credited according to some, with originating the free bingo craze in the United Kingdom with their first online bingo site, Costa Bingo.
Although they are a small enough enterprise to go unnoticed by most of the online gaming community, and the fact that none of their sites really give off any tell-tale signs that they belong to Mandalay Gaming Holdings Ltd. a few of their sites have gone on to be raging successes.
Launched just over a year ago, Xbingo is perhaps their biggest success. With plenty of bonuses and promotions on offer, a wealth of online bingo games and a license to operate in the Isle Of Man, Mandalay’s Xbingo was voted one of the best new bingo sites in 2011 and has been doing remarkably well ever since.
Aside from the Fancy Bingo, City Bingo and Sing Bingo, which to be fair are considered pretty much run of the mill online bingo sites, Mandalay Gaming Holdings Limited’s other major success was their first born, the aforementioned Costa Bingo.
At three years old, Costa Bingo is still a relative newbie on the online bingo circuit, yet it is famed for being amongst the first online bingo sites to offer free no deposit required bingo to new gamers. Being credited with such a thing can certainly not be easy to uphold but though patience and careful decision making concerning what to offer, promotions, bonuses and new games, Costa Bingo has become of the leading and most popular online bingo sites in the United Kingdom in its short three year existence.
Of course the downside to Mandalay’s inherent success is that even bigger things might be expected of the online bingo site owners in the near future, but Mandalay seem to have a good grasp on what works and what doesn’t in the online gambling world. Rushing into too good a thing and churning out site after site doesn’t appear to be their style, and as can be seen with many Dragonfish software powered site, lead to excessive repetition amongst online bingo sites that appear identical in every way save for the name. Mandalay prefer to take their time and when they have something they are ready to share with the world that is the next best thing, gamers can be assured that it will be just exactly that.
