Betfred Bingo Review Continued...
Well known for their sportsbook offering, Betfred also operates a bingo platform powered by Virtue Fusion. Does it hold its own in comparison to the rest of the Betfred brand?
There are nine bingo rooms on offer at Betfred Bingo, six of which provide 90-ball games. There are two 75-ball rooms - the Classic Seaside and the Wild West Saloon Room, both of which provide players with a refreshing change of pace. There’s also a Rainbow Riches bingo room offering a 40-ball game. Tickets are reasonably priced for most games, and there’s always something on, so you’ll never get bored.
If you’ve managed to wear yourself out on bingo, you can try out an enormous variety of slots, scratchcards, multiplayer games, casino games and progressive jackpots, most of which are offered by Playtech, its subsidiary company Ash Gaming, or the Australian company Eyecon. There’s no chance to try before you buy, however, which is a shame.
The landing page for Betfred Bingo is in line with the style found across the rest of the site, but once you open up the bingo client on desktop, the sleek design is swapped for some rather outdated graphics. It runs quickly and doesn’t grind your computer to a halt, but it’s definitely not the most fashionable bingo lobby out there.
The mobile version of the site looks far better than its desktop counterpart. It’s faster and doesn’t look as grainy, and there’s a mobile/tablet-only bingo room, 50’s Diner, which offers 90-ball speed bingo for a fast game and even faster windfalls. You’ll find a decent selection of slots and scratchcards as well, so you’ll always be entertained, whether on the train or in the passenger seat of the car.
The chat function was buzzing in every room encountered during the review, with hosts and players talking about their day, their recent bingo wins and every other subject in between. It’s certainly a friendly place.
Betfred has got an amazing loyalty programme for bingo players allowing them to move up the VIP ladder and earn great rewards. As a Bronze (entry-level) member, you’ll earn a loyalty point for every £30 staked on bingo, every £35 staked on scratchcards and every £40 staked on slots, pushing you closer to Silver or Gold status. The better your status, the less it will cost for you to earn loyalty points! You’ll also get a great birthday bonus of £5 even as a Bronze member!
Betfred Bingo Bonuses and Promotions
You’ll receive £30 in bonus cash from Betfred Bingo when you deposit and spend £10 on bingo tickets, giving you £40 to play with right from the start. However, you’ll need to spend that tenner within 30 days of registering in order to keep the bonus, which can only be played through on bingo tickets. Be quick about it!
Players will never be short of promotions to choose from, with a number of recurring games offering big jackpots, cut-price tickets and great deals taking place every day of the week. On the last weekend of every month, Betfred Bingo offers a huge £250k promotion that could really help you let your hair down. Their one-off promotions are good too, focusing heavily on prize draws.
You’re in for a great time at Betfred Bingo - a solid collection of bingo rooms, loads of supplementary games and a sweet VIP programme. Look past the tired graphics and you’ll find that Betfred has taken the classic bingo experience and made it friendlier, more engaging and even more rewarding.
