Boylesports Bingo Review
Boylesports launched their bingo product in 2010. Like the majority of bookmakers they opted to run on the Virtue Fusion platform powered by Playtech. This means that they are able to offer players access to a variety of bingo rooms, variations on the game and many popular slots. Additionally players can use the same wallet for sportsbook, casino and poker. Boylesports Bingo is open to UK players but as an Irish based bookmaker, the site pitches itself to Ireland bingo players.
Boylesports Bingo is an integral part of the Boylesports sportsbook brand. Bathed in purples and blues it's quite an attractive option. Details about the latest bingo games as well as the most popular slots adorn the front page. Surprisingly the slot offering is considerably downplayed when compared to other brands. The site isn't designed to be responsive on mobile but you can still play on handheld devices without needing to download an app.
New players to Boylesports Bingo used to be welcomed with a 300% first deposit bonus. However like Bgo.com they've decided to quietly remove any welcome bonus for newbies. Instead players are redirected to a sportsbook bonus which is OK but not if you're looking for bingo. We don't really know what they hope to achieve with this move because with so many other Virtue Fusion brands offering better deals for newbies it's a no brainer to go elsewhere. It might well be that Boyles are looking to switch to an alternative provider and this is the first step in that process.
Enter the bingo lobby at Boylesports and you'll have the option to play 75, 80 and 90 ball games in rooms like Hippo House, Lion's Lair and Zebra Stripes. More recently the Virtue Fusion 52 ball game, Housey, has been added to the roster. In addition there's speed bingo, Rainbow Riches Bingo, Lucky Numbers and Deal Or No Deal. Joining this selection of rooms is the Baboon Bargains Room. This is exclusive to the site and it's only open between 3pm and 11pm.
Daily Free Bingo
Although the slots aren't overly pushed at Boylesports Bingo there are plenty to choose from. Top slots including Adventures In Wonderland, Big Top Tombola, Rainbow Riches, Britain's Got Talent Superstar, Clover Rollover and Irish Luck. Additional slots and games can be found under the casino, vegas and games channels.
Promotions are pretty limited compared to other Virtue Fusion Network brands. Aside from the welcome offer the featured promos include Super Sunday, which offers a 20% bonus, and Daily Free Bingo. The latter is available to players who wager £5 during the day. The free room opens between 5pm and 6pm for Superbook style games.
Boylesports Bingo offers plenty of options with respect to depositing funds or making withdrawals. Skrill, Paypal, Neteller, Paysafecard and Euteller can all be used. Boku is also available and this allows players to deposit via mobile. In general the minimum deposit is £10 and minimum withdrawal £10. A loyalty programme is available and players can work their way up from Bronze to Diamond levels through loyal play.
Whilst Boylesports Bingo doesn't match brands like Gala and Mecca, it is comparable to other bookmakers that use Virtue Fusion. The selection of bingo rooms and slots is good, but we would like to see more exclusives and promotions. The lack of community on site and via social media is disappointing, but not a dealbreaker. Overall it's a good Virtue Fusion brand to consider if you live in Ireland. If you're a UK player we suggest that you might find Betfred or William Hill as a better option.
