The UK-based Bede Gaming is a budding online gambling - and social gaming - software supplier providing services to online casinos, bingo halls and lottery services. Building world-class platforms for topnotch, international gambling brands, Bede Gaming has spent the last few years since their 2011 launch securing more and more contracts with the world's leading gambling brands.
It's no surprise Bede Gaming has been clamoring to partner with the industry's top brands as many of the members of Bede's team are former employees of top software suppliers and saw first-hand the opportunities offered through the issues involved with the industry. The three credited founders of Bede Gaming - Joseph Saumarez Smith, Dan Smyth and Michael Brady - were veterans of the online gambling software industry touting brands like OpenBet, Dragonfish, and Playtech on their resumes.
The three founders explained they left their topnotch former employers out of frustration with the inability to simply customize the customer facing front end for its clients. Surprisingly, only a few years into its creation Bede Gaming has already reached its initial goal of providing this service, eventually claiming praise as one of the premier providers of client-custom front ends.
Bede Gaming developers' talents span a spectrum of specialties including but not limited to bingo, slot and table games. The supplier has provided 12 unique HTML5 slot games as well as a fleet of table games, all of which are accessible via mobile devices.
The main slot titles coming from this world-class team are Halloween Riches, Medieval Magic, and Tropical Treasure, to name a few. However, the 12 HTML5 slots on offer are not what Bede hangs it hat on but instead its fully integrated product platforms. Regardless, their few slot offerings are truly topnotch.
Outside of the attention-grabbing slot offerings stealing all the headlines, Bede has quietly established themselves as one of the top suppliers of online bingo services. They provide fully integrated platforms for their bingo partners as well. They specifically provide bingo rooms (75 and 90 ball), prizes, bonuses and other unique bingo features.
Bede Gaming's bread and butter is providing a fully integrated platform - called BedeHUB - meaning partners of Bede's are supplied "flexible, scaleable, modular and fully open" software platforms. Partners are offered the ability to integrate any additional third party software into the Bede platform, develop their own IP or simply use the solutions Bede offers. Each platform can also integrate into land based systems, offering partners an omni-channel convergence solution.
As mentioned, Bede does have a games studio rolling out slot, bingo, and table games. The ability to integrate third party suppliers provides Bede's partners access to additional offerings - upwards of 700+ games - from other topnotch brands like NetEntertainment and Evolution Gaming.
The integration benefits don't stop with just third party suppliers as Bede Gaming also provides live-dealer, sportsbook, and poker integration for its products.
Outside of providing unbelievable software, Bede Gaming does provide a wealth of other services including product development (outside Bede's solutions), marketing, data analysis, site hosting and operating, and product consultation.
Bede's headquarters are in Newcastle, in the heart of north-east England and their British roots are strong but the supplier fully understands online gambling is an international industry; the company holds an iGaming license in not only the UK with the UK Gambling Commission but also holds a license with the Alderney Gambling Control Commission for players outside of the UK.
Recently, Bede Gaming, despite a heavy concentration of casino offerings, has racked up a few major awards and recognition for their efforts in the online bingo world. Bede Gaming was named 'Online Bingo Supplier of the Year' at the 2014 EGR B2B awards while two of their bingo platform partners were shortlisted for 'Rising Star of the Year' and 'Bingo Operator of the Year'. Bede also won the 'Innovation in Bingo Award' at the 2014 eGaming Operator Marketing Awards.
