The Health Lottery Launches Bingo Product
Posted by Jason Dale
Despite an over crowded market place 2013 proved to be a busy month for new bingo sites. The big event of the year was the arrival of Bingo Godz, one of the first sites to use the new Bede Gaming platform. They were joined by Bingo Stars and it was widely expected that Bet Victor Bingo would be the next resident.
However, it appears that Victor has been pipped to third place by The Health Lottery who have launched Health Bingo. Players to the new site can enjoy 75 ball and 90 ball games, BOGOF games between 8pm and 9pm daily plus guaranteed jackpot games. New players are welcomed to the site with a 200% welcome bonus.
In addition you'll be able to play IGT slots such as Cluedo, Monopoly, Cleopatra and Monopoly. One thing that concerned us is whether Health Bingo would be contributing to good causes. The good news is that they will "give 20% of its profits, not its proceeds to health related good causes". This means Health joins Bingo Giving, Rehab Bingo and Pink Ribbon as sites that raise funds for charity.
The arrival of Health Bingo could well be a bit of a coup for Bede Gaming. Whilst other networks are launching unknown brands, Bede are either going with already known names or with industry experience as in the case of Bingo Godz. This should put them in good stead for 2014 - although a big name bingo site is irrelevant if the platform powering it isn't attractive to players or there's little promotion.
Surprisingly there's no news on either The Health Lottery site or their Facebook page about the arrival of Health Bingo. There is a link on the lotto site and this takes you through to a registration page where you can join using your Health Lottery account. We suspect that you wil not have a linked account - so deposits in bingo won't be accessible via lotto!
2014 is going to be a massive year for Bede Gaming, Bingo Godz and now Health Bingo. Industry observers will be looking to see how these new kids on the block fare. Their success or failure could be a strong indicator of the health of the online bingo industry itself.
