New Player Offer: 500% Bonus - Free Newbie Room
Wagering terms and conditions will apply - Please gamble responsibly!
Joining the throng of bookmaker branded bingo sites on the Virtue Fusion network is Betfair. They've finally take the plunge and added bingo to their existing sportsbook and casino channels. Some players may be put off by the combination of betting and bingo, but Betfair have managed to put together a very decent looking site.
Visually, Betfair Bingo is stunning and in fact it's one of the best looking sites we've seen in a long time. The information is clear, the promotions are well laid out and it looks very inviting. Full marks to them for doing this - other bookies could learn a thing or two from this set up. Underneath the good looks however is a standard Virtue Fusion Network site with the usual mix of 75 and 90 ball games, slots and instants.
New players are welcomed with a nice 500% deposit bonus. Spend £10 and you'll have £60 to play. It should be noted that the bonus is split as a £30 Bingo Bonus & £20 Bingo Games Bonus. Wagering terms apply and these are set at x4 for bingo, x10 for casino and x25 for games. Make sure you understand the terms with respect to wagering and withdrawing winnings.
As well as the deposit bonus, a newbie room is available every Saturday so that new additions to the site can find their feet with some free bingo. Elsewhete, promotions wise Betfair are heavy on those offered by the network. These include BingoLinx Jackpots, The Big Weekend and penny bingo. In addition they do offer specials including their own Bingoal where you can predict the result of a football match for the chance to get a bingo bonus. This is perhaps the only nod towards Betfair's betting origins.
Although it's not immediately obvious on the site, Betfair Bingo are operating on Facebook and Twitter channels. The site is in it's infancy so it's early days but at least on Facebook they're offering opportunities to pick up some bonus funds with mini competitions. At the moment there doesn't appear to be a mobile version - we're sure an app will be available in the near future.
Overall an impressive debut from Betfair Bingo. Hopefully it will follow the likes of William Hill and Sky by building and offering some great exclusive promotions to match it's early efforts.
