Dundee, Tayside, 12th February 2013.

Binary Pumpkin are helping forgetful Valentines this February by releasing a Valentine's themed version of their highly rated game Pumpkin Bingo. Valentines Bingo builds upon the addictive gameplay of Pumpkin Bingo and ties it all up within a romantic package.

It's 'mother' project Pumpkin Bingo has now received just under 50,000 downloads on the Google Play store and Apple App Store and has received nearly 2,000 ratings in total, averaging 4.4 out of 5.

Co-Founder of Binary Pumpkin and ultimate romantic programmer on Valentine Bingo Bruce McNeish reflects, “Pumpkin Bingo players are 85% female according to our data, so we thought we would provide a get-out clause for all those who forget Valentine's day and suffer the consequences. We are offering Valentines Bingo as a free alternative to service station flowers and cheap cards and with an Infinite Plays in app purchase, it is definitely the gift that keeps giving!”

Lol Scragg, the other similarly romantic co-founder of the company adds without any hint of shame;

“Roses are Red,  

Violets are Blue,   

if you've forgotten Valentines Day,   

Valentines Bingo is for you…”

Valentines Bingo is available for Android devices exclusively.

Pumpkin Bingo is available now for all iOS devices as well as Android, Pumpkin Bingo will also be released imminently via the Amazon App Store and Nook Store whilst versions for Google TV and PlayStation Mobile are also in the works.
