UK Bingo Sites & Networks

The UK has gone bingo crazy and there's a new bingo site appearing online almost every week! But how are they all related? Which network are they on? And who's their sister site? This can be quite confusing for players - they register as one site only to find they're playing the same games from another they've just left. This is because that a number of branded bingo sites use the same software and network. The best analogy is a room with lots of different coloured doors - all look look different, but all lead into the same place!

Networks are important in online bingo - the more players in a game then the bigger the pots and prize money. The good news is that not all sites are networked and those that are, especially bigger brands, will run their own rooms and games. The trick is to understand who's who!

Here's our guide to how the UK Bingo sites shape up....

Gamesys Bingo Sites
Gamesys are the people behind Jackpotjoy. They have partnered with a number of sites, including Loquax up to 2014, to provide a branded version of their site, deal or no deal slots and of course bingo. Gamesys also power sites such as Sun Bingo and Heart Bingo. They were recently sold to the Intertain Group.

Virtue Fusion
Virtue Fusion
Utilised by big bingo sites like Mecca Bingo, Ladbrokes, Sky and William Hill. Some of these operate independently with their own jackpots and promotions, however Bingo Linx games tend to be across all sites for bigger jackpots. All offer 90 ball and 75 ball bingo and a variety of instant win games and slots.

15 Marketing
15 Network - Jumpman
A relatively new network that launched in 2012. Brands include Tidy, Spice and Showreel plus our very own Clucky Bingo. New networks usually have small player volume and low prize value, but on the other hand they have a more community feel, more chances to win - and if they become successful then you've been with them from the outset!

888 Cassava Globalcom
These are one of the most popular bingo services in the UK. Now more widely known as Dragonfish or Cassava, and owned by 888, there are several different operators and networks including Dragonfish, 888 Joy Of Bingo and Intertain (Costa). Our sites Prize Bingo and Loquax Bingo are on the Dragonfish network.

Real Money Network
Real Money Network
With expected changes to occur on the taxation of free money, Dragonfish launched a brand new network. Using the same software as above, The Real Money Network differs in that players have no wagering requirements to worry about. No bonuses are paid out but wins from rewards such as free tickets and spins are offered in real cash.

Leapfrog Gaming
You'll recognise Leapfrog powered bingo rooms such as Jackpot Liner, King Jackpot and Jackpot Cafe - formerly Bingo Cafe - as they are all download software bingo sites. The software is safe and easy to install. 90 ball and 75 ball bingo games are on offer, plus a wide range of slots and casino games that may put some players off.

Cozy Games
Cozy Games
Cozy Games have a number of sites which form networks such as the huge "Live Bingo Network", hope of our own Snappy Bingo, and the recent addition of the "Lucky Duck Network". Probably the most well known Cozy site is Gone Bingo. All offer 90 ball, 80 ball 75 ball and 30 ball games plus slots, casino games and a decent mobile play option.

Other networks featured on Loquax are Relax Gaming, Daub Aldernay Ltd, United Bingo, Microgaming, Bingo Entertainment, Cashcade Network, Bede Gaming and Parlay.

Sites like Tombola and BingoCams are featured under our Independent Bingo Sites as they use their own bespoke software.

Unfortunately online bingo is no longer just about new sites. There are now a number of sites that have closed down due to changes in taxes, bonuses and the online environment.
