GamePoint’s first iPad Game: Bingo Royale
Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at 17:18
With the launch of its first game for iOS, GamePoint marks a new milestone in its cross platform strategy. The game titled Bingo Royale is an iPad version of GamePoint’s most popular game on the web: Bingo.
The future of gaming
Over the past decades a lot has changed in the way we play games. Back in the old days you had to go and look for a few friends to play with in a bar, or even pay a visit to your family in order to play a game. With the introduction of online and now even mobile gaming, today you can just log on from anywhere and play a game against someone anywhere in the world. Too bad for Fred the local bartender or your grandmother. You don’t need them anymore.
Since 1998 GamePoint has been one of the companies at the base of changing the way people play games. Launching Bingo Royale for iPad is another milestone for the company, adding a new distribution platform to serve its players.
GamePoint Bingo fans love to play Bingo with their GamePoint friends. The iPad version of the game enables Bingo fans to play Bingo everywhere. The possibilities are endless: play on your couch, in your favorite bar or cafe or even when visiting family. All you need is your iPad and a stable internet connection. So don’t worry you can still stay in touch with grandma and Fred the bartender if you like.

Bingo Royale is now available in Apple’s Appstore and can be downloaded for free, just click here.
GamePoint to speak at GameConnection America
Monday, March 11, 2013 at 16:57
Rik Haandrikman, GamePoint’s Director of Business Development, will be speaking at GameConnection America 2013. Rik’s session will take place on Tuesday March 26th from 2:00 to 2:50 p.m. (PST) at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco. The session, named: ‘Shoestringing your way to a global presence’ will explain attendees how to grow a mid-sized gaming company into a globally known player on a tight budget.
Founded in The Netherlands back in 1998, GamePoint has been around for a while. After launching an online gaming platform for the Dutch market, the company grew into Holland’s prime destination for real time multiplayer online social gaming. After this initial success the company went looking for international growth. Using no outside funding, the company bootstrapped its way to an international gaming company now entertain millions of users from all over the world every month.
At GameConnection America, Rik will tell you all about GamePoint’s road to success and the tough choices the company has had to make to get where they are today. A must attend for any company in the gaming industry looking for the most cost efficient way to grow!
After spending quite a lot of time (10 years) doing a (very) wide selection of (very) different studies while working freelance in the music, event and graphic design industry, GamePoint managed to finally tie Rik down to an office in 2008.
After a short stretch at Community Management for GamePoint’s Dutch casual gaming portal, Rik quickly made the transition to the sale of advertising space on Spelpunt.nl combined with the acquisition of new partner websites. His success in this department resulted in rapid promotion from junior account manager, to senior account manager, sales manager and after a position in international business development, sales and marketing, finally Rik became director of business development.
By running GamePoint’s marketing and sales departments Rik has acquired extensive knowledge of digital marketing, the international media business and has built an impressive network of relations with key decision makers in a range of fortune 500 companies.
GameConnection will be held from March 25 till 27 at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco USA. Rik will speak on Tuesday March 26th from 2:00 to 2:50 p.m. (PST). Find out more about Rik’s lecture here.
