Global leader in social games of chance

Virtual Gaming Worlds (VGW) is a fast-growing global technology company and creator of market-leading online social games. The business is innovative and is setting new standards in the online social gaming market.

VGW is an unlisted Australian public company founded by Laurence Escalante in 2010 with the vision of creating a virtual world focused on social gaming and entertainment.

Highly incremental margins with earnings growth rates over 100%.

VGW’s range of social games can each be played either with a virtual currency called “Gold Coins” or with free promotional sweepstakes entry tokens called “Sweeps Coins”. Like other social games, VGW’s Gold Coins can be purchased by players to extend and enhance their gameplay. Gold Coins cannot be redeemed for anything of value nor can they be transferred or traded. The majority of VGW’s players play free, without purchasing Gold Coins.

Trading of shares in VGW on the PrimaryMarkets platform has been very successful since VGW opened its Private Trading Hub.
