Betfred Bingo made the switch from Playtech to Virtue Fusion in July 2010, and this was an extremely wise move as it meant the end of having to download software before being able to play your favourite games. These days they form part of the much larger Betfred site, where it sits alongside Sports Betting, Totepool, Casino, Live Casino, Games, Poker and Lotto to name but a few. You can log into any of these sub-sites with the same log in details, giving you access to quite literally hundreds of different games.
Click on blue ‘Bingo’ button from the top menu, and you will be transported to their bingo page. A second silver menu will appear and this is how you will navigate your way around just the bingo pages. Here you will find details on welcome bonuses, a play now button, a schedule of future games, their community pages, promotions, a link to mobile bingo, and even a page dedicated to some of their many winners. Signing up will take a matter of minutes and they offer plenty of ways to fund your account so you can get going, and qualify for their welcome bonus.
The Betfred Bingo homepage is nicely designed with a blue and silver colour scheme. The top of the page is made up of a selection of scrolling banner that change each month to show their latest promotions. Directly under this is a number of small banners, along with quick links and buttons that take you to their social networking pages. It is always a good idea to ‘Like’ these, as they are a great place to get to know your bingo buddies and take part in exclusive promotions.
Head into the lobby and you will find tabs for 90 ball bingo, 75 ball bingo, Joker Jackpot and their Multiplayer Games. There are plenty of rooms to choose from, but not all of these are open 24/7. This is not necessarily a bad thing though, as it means there are more players in the ones that are open, so you end up playing for larger jackpots. In the top right hand corner of the lobby, there is also a selection of their most popular mini games, and these open up in a new window.
The rooms themselves look great and are of the same high quality as any of the other sites on the Virtue Fusion network. The screen is split down the middle with the left hand side dedicated to the chat room, and right your bingo tickets. In the chat room you can complete your own profile and let people know a bit about you, and even add them to your friends list, which enables you to be able to send them private messages. You can change the colour of your font, and there are plenty of emoticons and acronyms built in to save you all of that repetitive typing.
You will certainly never be bored at Betfred Bingo, because all of these superb games are backed up by a load of exciting promotions. Each and every day they give away £8,000 worth of guaranteed cash jackpots through three Bingo Linx games. This is just the start of it though because they have impressive regular promotions including like the likes of free bingo, roll on bingo and the obligatory refer a friend scheme. Add to this the addition of specials each month, and you have one of the best line-ups in the industry.
Betfred Bingo is one of the best sites out there. They have plenty of games, exciting promotions, a great software platform and the backing of one of the better networks. The bingo site alone is impressive, but if you add to it everything else the main Betfred site has to offer, and you really are spoiled for choice. Their layout can be a bit confusing at times, but this only a very small niggle in what as an otherwise a near perfect online bingo site.
Betfred Bingo Review – Bingo Games
Game Options at Betfred Bingo
Betfred Bingo is just a small part of the larger Betfred site and as such you have access to hundreds of different games and gambling options. If we focus just on their bingo operation though, they still offer 75 and 90 ball bingo as well as a large range of slots and instant games, all of which can be accessed online or via your mobile phone or tablet as long as you have a 3G, 4G or WiFi connection.
The actual bingo rooms have plenty of options to keep things interesting, including a selection of dab colours, shapes and dauber styles. If you need to step away from computer for a while, you can use the auto-buy feature which uses simple slide bars to set the number of games you wish to take part in the maximum number of tickets you want to purchase.
Betfred Bingo’s Super Room is where you will find their bingo games. The room was previously only open between 5pm and 7pm each evening, but after listening to their fans on Facebook, they have now introduced an After Hours Free Bingo session, which runs between midnight and 1am each night. There are no wagering or qualifying requirement either, so as long as you are a registered player, you can join in the fun.
Betfred Bingo is part of the Virtue Fusion network, and as such is home to a large number of guaranteed jackpot games. The highlight of these though, is three 90 ball Bingo Linx games that take place each day, giving you the opportunity to win a share of an impressive amount of cash.
If you prefer 75 ball bingo, don’t worry because Betfred Bingo has something for you too. On the last Friday of each month, they hold a special 75 ball bingo session between 6pm and midnight in their Wild West Saloon Room, and there is a whopping £15,000 worth of prize money up for grabs.
When it comes to promotions, few sites can compete with Betfred Bingo. As well as the guaranteed jackpots mentioned above, they have a regular line-up including free bingo, bargain bingo, Superbooks, birthday bonuses, a refer a friend scheme and Roll on Bingo that continues after the full house is won. In addition to this though, they are always adding monthly specials, and most of these take the form of three days ‘parties’ where you have the chance to win even more guaranteed jackpots through a schedule containing a mix of their most popular games.
