Betfair Bingo Review - Site Reviews
Before launch there had been many rumours about the opening of Betfair Bingo up to two years prior to the site actually accepting players. The site finally opened in March 2013 and like many sports betting brands before it, Betfair chose the Virtue Fusion/Playtech gaming software to power their product.
When you first visit the Betfair Bingo homepage you are greeted with an abundance of colour showing all the welcome offers and latest promotions from the brand.
When you register with Betfair you get more than access to the bingo gaming wallet, creating an account will allow you to play all the other games on offer but you may have to transfer funds between gaming wallets dependent on where you want to play. Creating your account is pretty straightforward with the usual details required to sign up.
Once registration is complete you do have to create a bingo username before you can enter a room, this has to be different to the username you used at registration and is the name that you will be known as in the rooms.
Step into the lobby for the first time and you may feel right at home if you have played at other brands on the Virtue Fusion product. The layout is the same with just a different colour scheme. It is here that you will find details of all the different games available. The lobby is a veritable hive of information with details of the room name, time until next game, prize money, ticket prices, number of players and the maximum number of tickets on offer. All of this means that you are able to make an informed decision on the room to play in that suits your budget and requirements.
From the lobby you can also pre-buy tickets by using the ‘Schedule’ link next to each room, this will help ensure you don’t miss out on any of the big money or promotional games on offer at Betfair Bingo.
Betfair Bingo offers both 75 and 90 ball bingo, the 90 ball version is also used for themed games like Britain’s Got Talent Bingo and Bingo Games. You will also find multiplayer slots on offer as well as an abundance of instant win games.
This site is also home to a whole plethora of jackpot games including the Bingo Linx games and progressive jackpots on both bingo and the slots.
When it comes to promotions Betfair Bingo currently seems to be offering the same as most other Virtue Fusion sites but keep and eye on our bingo news for all the latest deals and offers from this brand.
In summary Betfair Bingo doesn’t let the good name of the brand down.
