Often when we write news articles for Playing Bingo we find ourselves repeating the same promotion or news from different brands, the same promotion but with a new name and it can get pretty tedious. However, now and again a brand will introduce something that really catches our attention and definitely whets our bingo appetite. This is true of the latest news from Butlers Bingo despite our first impressions not being overly favourable.
We received news of a new room set to open in a couple of days at Butlers Bingo, the Spinner Room opens on 1st September. At first glance we thought that this was to be just another exclusive room for their players but it also brings with it a new concept and it was this we weren’t overly impressed with at first.
The Spinner Room is going to offer something different from your standard 90 ball game. You still have three chances to win, one line, two lines and the full house but it isn’t cash that you will be winning. It was this fact that left us a bit stumped – instead of cash prizes you will be winning free spins on slot games. Now for us the thought of spending cash to win free spins didn’t make much sense until we read on to find that any winnings derived from the free spins won hit the CASH balance of the player!
Now this makes a really interesting concept and even more so when you consider that the biggest ever slot win to date happened at Butlers Bingo on 9th December 2012. A 60 year old man from Long Sutton made a £50 deposit with the brand, played for a few days then spent just 30p on a spin of the Batman Dark Knight slot and won £5,883,044.43! You can read our article about the win here.
That alone makes the concept of the new room at Butlers Bingo a lot more interesting don’t you think? If you fancy taking a ‘spin’ to the new room then it is open daily from 5pm until 7pm.
