Online and social bingo operator Bingo.com has sold its domain and real-money gaming business to Sweden’s Unibet Group for a total consideration of US$8.0m.

Bingo.com will receive a cash consideration of $2.0m and redemption of the 15m shares of the company already held by Unibet (at a price of $0.40 per share). Unibet had acquired the shares for $2.25m in May 2010 at $0.15 per share, equivalent to a 26 per cent stake in the business.

As a result of the acquisition, Bingo.com will be renamed Shoal Games and will focus solely on its social bingo game, Trophy Bingo.
