Virgin Gaming is a venture between WorldGaming.com and Virgin Group which was formed during June 2010 in Toronto. World Gaming was founded by Billy Levy, Zack Zeldin and Ryan Tenbusch on January 1, 2006. Virgin Gaming is a fee-based online service who has partnered with Xbox and Playstation targeting the 116 million users of those consoles to not only play head to head or in leagues with other gamers all over the world but also to place wagers on those games. Virgin Gaming takes a 12% cut of any money users wager on what are deemed partnering games unless users opt to pay for a subscription of $5 a month.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]
