Jam City has announced it has acquired Bingo Pop, “one of the top bingo mobile games worldwide,” from Uken Games.

The news follows the company’s recent announcement of a multi-year partnership with Disney.
According to the press release, Canada is quickly becoming “a haven for top game developers, engineers, designers, and artists from around the world” due to its universities, universal healthcare, affordable housing, and diverse communities.

We look forward to working with the talented Jam City team in Toronto as we supercharge the live operations of Bingo Pop and develop innovative new titles and mobile entertainment experiences.”
“Jam City is looking forward to tapping into the large pool of talent across the region and expanding our operations in such a vibrant and trend-setting city,” added DeWolfe.
“We are incredibly proud of what the Bingo Pop team has accomplished in creating a leader in the mobile bingo game category. We’re confident that Jam City will be a great home for Bingo Pop and the talented team behind the game in its next phase of growth,” said Chris Ye, co-founder and CEO of Uken Games. “Following this deal, we are excited to focus on the continued success of our iconic trivia titles and introduce brand new game franchises to players around the world.
