Microsoft adds free online games to Bing

Microsoft has launched bunch of free 'casual' games which it has pinned to its Google-alike search engine, Bing.

The software giant said the move was prompted by 'popular demand' for free on-line gaming and the company always delivers what the consumer wants.

Some 46 free casual games online are now available on Bing UK search results pages.

SpokesBing, Tamsin Todd enthused: "Since Bing’s inception, games have been a popular search term with our users. Allowing our users to get to their favourite games in quickest possible time, playing the games right through the search results page, we’re excited to make these great casual games available on Bing."

Bored workers, dolies and retired grannies can log on with their Facebook or Windows Live identities to keep up with what their on-line chums are up to.
