Ladbrokes Bingo Review
As with other bookmakers, Ladbrokes are well involved in the online bingo market. They launched their channel back in 2004 and opted for the bookies' favourite, Virtue Fusion, as their platform of choice. However since their owner, GVC, purchased the old Cozy Games platform and moved Foxy and Coral over to it, it's just been a matter of time before Ladbrokes also changed over. As of May 2020 Ladbrokes Bingo is now part of the group that offers 30, 75, 80 and 90 ball games including the recently launched Cashout Bingo.
The new look Ladbrokes Bingo channel is much more attractive. The old Virtue Fusion set-up looked a little bit abandoned towards the end with many features - such as the schedule - not working. As of May 2020 the site looks fresh and inviting. The top of the site highlights the latest welcome offer and player promotions in a slideshow whilst the current bingo rooms are show below. As is now standard these days, the remainder of the site is dominated by popular slots including Slingo. You don't need to download an app to play games at Ladbrokes Bingo.

Ladbrokes Bingo Welcome Offer
New players joining Ladbrokes Bingo are offered a deposit bonus. Register, login, deposit and spend just £5 to receive a £25 bonus. In percentage terms this is a 500% bonus which is pretty good and is currently the best deal on this platform. Of course wagering terms do apply but even they are reasonable. Just x2 wagering requirements apply to the bonus. Whether this offer is only valid for a short period as part of the relaunch remains to be seen.
A new platform means new bingo rooms. Unfortunately out go themed rooms such as Corrie Bingo and other Virtue Fusion regulars like Deal Or No Deal. Instead players can access 30, 75, 80 and 90 ball games. The names of these rooms - Attic, Living Room, Treehouse, Library and Garage - have been carried over from the old version. Joining these are Cash Out Bingo which originally was exclusive to Foxy. This version of the popular numbers game gives you the chance to cash out a win if you're waiting on 1TG. Ticket prices for most games are between 1p and 10p. Pre-buy is available on many games.
Ladbrokes Bingo Promotions
Joining the main rooms above is a couple of jackpot rooms. As of May 2020 you could visit The Bedroom for a £500 jackpot and The Party Room for the chance to win up to £200. These are joined by The Big Games Room where there's a massive £15K up for grabs. Note that all these rooms are shared with GVC's other big brands - namely Coral, Foxy and Cheeky. If you like free bingo then make sure you drop into The Terrace! From 5pm, 7pm and 9pm you can enjoy one hour free bingo sessions every day of the week with guaranteed prizes for everyone. No opt in, deposit or spend required.
Over the years we've seen some decent player promotions from Ladbrokes Bingo. Whether we see many exclusives going forward remains to be seen. We expect that we will see some exciting jackpots and free bingo options but suspect these will be shared. However there are a number of promotions for casino and slots players including daily free spins, free roll poker tournaments and a chance to win up to £500 cash daily with Trivia Show Live. Don't forget that a bingo account does mean you can play and wager in other sections of the Ladbrokes brand.
As you can wager in other sections this means that Ladbrokes offers access to a huge range of slots. Within the bingo section you'll find a number of featured games including Slingo titles, Cake Off, Rainbow Rewards, Fluffy Favourites, Big Banker Slot and The Winnings Of Oz. Players lamenting the loss of their TV Soap rooms can still login for Emmerdale Fun Drops and Coronation Street Cashpot. Live casino and table games are also available to play.
The revamped Ladbrokes Bingo looks great and although the change may shock a few loyal stalwarts there's plenty on offer to soften the change. The minimum £5 first deposit is especially attractive as is the level of wagering terms. The free bingo is another good reason to take a look, especially as no deposit is required. The big issue for Ladbrokes is whether their old players embrace the new site. If they do then this could be a successful - but rare - change of platform.
