It was in June 2009 that we first wrote about a new bingo site set to launch, Betfair Bingo but it has taken over three years for the site to actually open its virtual doors to players! Betfair is a name that has been known in the gaming world for many years offering sports betting, poker and casino to online gamers. Speculation of the launch of a bingo product started when the brand moved to Playtech.
Originally the launch was reported to be set for late 2009 according to an article posted on the Gambling Compliance website and the game was set to be launched ‘both online and with a TV bingo offering’ – the latter we have yet to see.
In our original article we asked why Betfair Bingo was to be launched on one of the lesser software platforms, Playtech, but things have changed since then. In February 2010 Playtech purchased Virtue Fusion, one of the most impressive bingo software products available online today.
Back in June 2009 we ended our article by saying that you should keep checking our bingo news section for details of the launch, and true to our promise – here it is, just a few years later than we had originally anticipated!
