Totesport Bingo
To Close

There have been a few changes behind the scenes of late at some of the Virtue Fusion / Playtech sites; changes that don’t affect players but sites like ours that promote the brands. These changes have been around the affiliate programs that are used to promote the sites and recently we received notification about Totesport and how the brand is moving to a new scheme. However, Totesport Bingo is not making the migration because it is closing.

How permanent the closure of Totesport Bingo is remains to be seen, all we have been told is that it has been removed from the brand ‘for the foreseeable future’. The question is though, is the closure a great loss to the online bingo player or one that we wouldn’t have noticed save for the communication about the affiliate changes?

You may or may not already be signed up at the following online bingo sites, and if you haven’t, they should probably be best avoided (at least for the time being). Big Time Bingo, Bingo Palace, BingoSC, and OnlineBingo.com are reported to be closing, so they should not be played on or registered at.

Mirror Bingo Moves To Virtue Fusion

Thursday, Jul. 17th 2014 7:55 AM

Mirror Bingo, from the newspaper group of the same name has been a Cashcade favourite since its launch but recently the brand has been streamlined and many of the sites have lost their original feel. It may be that that’s fuelled the decision by the Mirror group to move the sites over to the Virtue Fusion software.

The decision was announced a little while ago and for most of yesterday Mirror Bingo was offline. At about dinner time the site finally went live, moving all the operations, lock, stock and barrel over to the Virtue Fusion software. We’ll be updating the Mirror Bingo review soon.

Numerous Online Bingo Site Closures

Saturday, Mar. 8th 2014 7:47 AM

Often the news we bring you here at Playing Bingo is about new brands that are launching on line, it’s quite a rarity to be reporting on the closure of a brand but in February 2013 quite a few shut their virtual doors! February also heralded the arrival of some new brands (Tickety Boo Bingo to name just one) too but the closures were more numerous.

The only site on the closures list that made an official announcement, at least one we were privy too, was BingOn. This site opened in 2009 on the NYX Interactive software before moving to Parlay in October 2011. Players to the site are now directed to Bingo Palace where their logins are valid. Parlay now has very few brands powered by their software.
