Microgaming Bingo Sites

One of the biggest and best providers of online casino games and slots has moved into bingo. Sites powered by Microgaming – which include Butlers Bingo, Dream Bingo, Bingo Diamond and the charity bingo site Rehab Bingo – are a great place to play if you like a side order of slots with your bingo.

Microgaming

Microgaming's main focus remains as it always has been on slots rather than on its bingo product and this comes out in several ways when we consider what it is like to play at a Microgaming bingo site as compared to Cozy, Dragonfish or Virtue Fusion.

Not many bingo variants

Virtue Fusion bingo sites have what seems like dozens of bingo variants including Deal Or No Deal bingo and Rainbow Riches bingo as well as 50 ball and 80 ball, but you won't find anything like this variety at a Microgaming bingo site.

Microgaming sites do, however, have one special variant in the form of Immortal Romance Bingo, which is based on 90 ball bingo and features characters from the Immortal Romance slot.  Each of the characters has their own version of the game with a special bonus power that triggers when a particular ball is called, and there are also 4 jackpots to play for (one of which is free spins on the slot, the others cash) after collecting 20 special Medallion numbers.  The game is available for a few hours in the evenings, across the network.

Fewer bingo rooms

Lack of bingo variants leads to lack of bingo rooms, with only one 90 ball room open 24/7 and 75 ball just available in the evenings.  The position regarding this has has improved recently, however, as some of the Microgaming bingo operators such as the Broadway Gaming managed sites inlcuding Butlers Bingo and the Betway managed sites now have their own rooms.

A smaller network

Although the Microgaming slots network is absolutely huge and has multi million pound progressive jackpots, the bingo network is much smaller than the Virtue Fusion or Dragonfish network and so the bingo pots tend to be smaller too.

Lacklustre network promotions

Microgaming's network promotions such as the Monthly Megapot and Reverse Bingo Week haven't been changed in years.  A new network promotion does occasionally come along but these tend to be slots rather than bingo promotions and run at Microgaming casinos as well as at bingo sites.

Fewer exclusive promotions

It is common for Microgaming sites just to run the network promotions and not bother with much in the way of exclusive promotions, or if they do have exclusive promotions just to run the same ones month after month.  The exception is Dream Bingo which does seem to have exclusive promotions going on most of the time (often via their Facebook page).

An unadvertised mobile service

Microgaming bingo sites all come with a mobile version but this is rarely mentioned on site and you have to visit from a mobile to find it. Microgaming see mobile gaming as very important and have already developed versions of a couple of their slots that run on a smart watch so you never know, one day you might be able to play bingo on there too!

Bonuses

Microgaming bingo sites all used to offer big no deposit bonuses and even bigger deposit and reload bonuses (accompanied by high wagering requirements that had to be met before you could withdraw) but this is largely a thing of the past with only Bingo Diamond still having the no deposit bonus.  The deposit bonuses are not as big as they once were (to find really big ones these days you'll need to go to a Cozy bingo site) but still competitive, especially as some Microgaming sites such as Betway now only have a wagering requirement on casino bonuses and not on bingo bonuses (although there are other withdrawal restrictions).

It's all about the slots

Microgaming bingo sites always have the latest Microgaming slots, including all the progressive jackpot ones, which is a big plus point if that's what you're into.  Other bingo sites have some Microgaming slots as well but typically the brand new ones show up months late or in some cases not at all.
