Cozy Games is an online gaming software provider. Founded in 2005, Cozy Games is headquartered in Douglas on the Isle of Man. It is a leading gaming software provider and provides the software platforms which powers well over a hundred different bingo and casino sites.
The company made its name in bingo, where it is a major player in online bingo. It operates two entirely separate networks, which provide a large proportion of the sites available to United Kingdom based players. It is second only to Dragonfish as a “white label” operator, providing templated sites for other site operators. All Cozy Games powered sites offer a wide range of smooth running bingo formats. Many providers offer just 90 and 75 ball varieties, with maybe one alternative “speed” format thrown in for good measure. Cozy always offers several more than this, sometimes providing 90, 80, 75, 50 and 30 ball games to play.
The most populated network of the two Cozy siblings is its Live Bingo Network (LBN). This network has well over fifty different titles under its umbrella, including top names like Aunty Acid, Grimms, Ream, Scrummy and Vampire Bingo, to name just a few. The more junior partner is Best Bingo Network (BBN), which has just a couple of dozen titles in the club, such as Harry’s, Kelly’s Eye and United Colours of Bingo.
It also designs its own games, where it has an excellent portfolio of slot designs. These include several iconic titles, such as licenced movie franchise games Jurassic Park, Terminator 2 and Lara Croft’s Tomb Raider. Other evergreen titles include Avalon, Irish Gold, Shaman’s Luck and Thunderstruck. There is also always a good selection of traditional table games and a range of scratch cards on all Cozy powered sites. Cozy sites also licence games from fellow major games designers NetEnt and Microgaming, so there is always a broad selection of games available to play on all Cozy powered and networked sites.
In recent years, Cozy Games has expanded its repertoire and diversified into operating its own casinos. This is no doubt a sensible move: the margins are higher in casino sites, and it already has a fine portfolio of excellent slot tiles of its own, which saves money on licencing fees. Casinos already launched include Aunty Acid, Game Village, Scrummy and Spinsvilla.
In 2018, Cozy Games was acquired by the massive gaming conglomerate GVC Holdings, which is the owner of the Bwin brand amongst others. Cozy will henceforth be operated under the wing of GVC subsidiary brand ElectraWorks, although it will continue to be based on the Isle of Man.
All Cozy sites are licenced and registered by the Government of Gibraltar. This means that all their bingo and casino titles are fully regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, and are therefore considered safe to play for players based within the United Kingdom.
