Betvictor Bingo Review
Earlier in 2021 we told you that bookmaker Betvictor was going to finally enter the bingo market. Originally expected in 2013 we can now tell you that Betvictor Bingo in live. They've followed a similar approach to the likes of LeoVegas, Lottoland, Butlers Bingo and PlayOJO by adopting Pragmatic Play's plug-in bingo product. This means that players on Betvictor can enjoy a variety of games including the speedy 90 ball Bingo Blast and a selection of jackpots.
Introducing Betvictor Bingo
Because of the way Pragmatic Play's product works it means that bingo games can easily be integrated into an already established site. Betvictor is more well known for sportsbook so the new bingo channel blends in seamlessly. That said it's not as big and as bold as the approach used by PlayOJO. The various rooms are highlighted with cartoon imagesof mainly faceless ladies so for example the 30 ball room - which has no reference to being 30 ball - is illustrated with a lady on a scooter driving ahead of another lady in a sportscar. We don't know about you but that really doesn't say '30 ball bingo' to us.
Betvictor Bingo Welcome Bonus
New players to Betvictor Bingo are offered a bonus package after making an initial deposit and wagering. Register, login, opt-in, deposit and spend at least £10 within 7 days to receive £30 of bonuses for selected bingo games. This bonus comes with a reasonable x1 wagering term. In addition to the bonus qualifying players also receive 30 free spins on the popular Starburst slot. Any wins from these spins are paid as cash and therefore no wagering terms apply. Finally there's also a newbie room which is accessible for five days after the first wager. See promotions for more info.
There are a number of different rooms at Betvictor Bingo offering 30, 75, 80 and 90 ball games. The main rooms are AThe Jackpot Room, Tea Time, The Lounge, Daily Play and Speedy Bingo. Note that most of these rooms are shared with other brands that use the Pragmatic Play product. These are joined by Pragmatic Play's Bingo Blast game as a couple of jackpot rooms such as £5K Friyay. As far as we're aware none of these rooms are exclusive to Betvictor so you'll always be playing against players from other sites. Hopefully in the future we will see new rooms - both networked and exclusive - added to the roster which to be fair seems quite light at time of writing.
Betvictor Bingo Promotions
Click on promotions and you'll find very limited offers for bingo players at Betvictor. Other than the welcome offer there's just a newbie room to get excited about. Play Bingo for the first time and get 5 days free access to the Newbie Room where you can win £200 in cash prizes each day. The room is available for 5 days from the first wager only. All other promotions - i.e. the jackpot rooms - are those offered by the Pragmatic Play Network. Other offers and promos are available but these are for the more established sportsbook and casino channels.
It's been over eight years since portal sites started to suggest that Betvictor Bingo was coming soon and it's great to see it finally materialise. However we kind of think that they've missed the boat not only with the delay but with this launch. What are bingo players getting different from Betvictor Bingo when they can get the same games at Mirror Bingo, PlayOJO, Butlers etc. And the answer is - other than a new welcome offer - nothing. At PlayOJO you can enjoy the same games plus exclusives like The Mask Bingo and not have to worry about wagering terms. Perhaps things will pick up in the coming months.
