DRAGON'S DEN ON BBC PUTS GAMING ALERTS BACK IN THE SPOTLIGHT
October 15, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsViewers of BBC 2 were given another look at the Dragon's Den episode where two business partners, Emmie Matthews and Ed Stevens, received a £200,000 investment to give their company Gaming Alerts Limited a kick start when the show re-aired recently.
Theo Paphitis decided to make the £200,000 investment for 30% of the company, which was settled after he refused offers of 10 and 25% stake. Many of the other Dragons were a bit skeptical of the business model and decided to pass on the idea, which gave Theo a leg up in the negotiation process. In the end, however, all parties were happy with the deal.
Although Gaming Alerts, http://www.gamingalerts.co.uk/, began with and still does promote all aspects of online gaming, the company soon found that online bingo is the booming industry in the UK, and around the world. The company has since decided to focus more of their attention and efforts on the online-bingo industry.
Additionally, after doing extensive research into the international bingo market, along with their experience on the portal site, the company has launched a new bingo site in Spain. Feriabingo.com, http://feriabingo.com/, which launched last week, is an exclusively Spanish-speaking online-bingo site targeted for players in Spain.
"After finding out how saturated the market is in the UK, we've decided to focus our attention on other European markets," Ed said. "We're excited about the new opportunities we have in the works with Theo and hope Spain proves to be a success."
In keeping with the online-bingo focus, the company launched a new Online Bingo Forum at http://onlinebingoforum.co.uk/, which provides bingo players with a place to discuss their likes and dislikes about the popular operators as well as any other topics of interest. This addition is expected to attract even more bingo players to the site, continuing its growth.
The Gaming Alerts Industry News section is now featured in Google News UK, significantly expanding its overall reach. The site provides only the best online gambling news and continues to attract new readers every day.
