Virgin Games is a company that provides online gambling services, predominantly in the United Kingdom, that licences the brand from Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Enterprises.[1]

The company was established in late 2003 by Virgin Group. In 2013 the company was acquired by Gamesys for an undisclosed sum.[2]

Although it is part of the Virgin Group of companies, it is not related to Virgin Interactive, a video-game publisher, that was previously called Virgin Games Ltd.

They also run a number of poker tournaments across the United Kingdom. Currently, their games include keno, poker and a casino with games like roulette and blackjack.
