Latest Bingo Promotions

The aim of this page is to present a round-up of the current month’s outstanding, unusual and one off promotions at online bingo and slot sites.  Big money games, prize draws, tournaments, freebies and daily bonus promotions will all feature here.

Playtech Bingo Promotions

The main Virtue Fusion network promotion in October runs after 6pm every Friday and Saturday in the Deal or No Deal bingo rooms.  Each weekend has £20,000 of guaranteed prizes across the two rooms plus an escalator jackpot on the Friday evening.  This will run in whichever of the two rooms has the largest progressive jackpot on the day, with the ball count starting at 34 for DOND90 and 43 for DOND75.  The ball count goes up by two per hour and if the jackpot hasn’t dropped by 23.45 it is guaranteed to be won in the following game.   It pays out as a 50/50 split between the FH winner and all tickets held by non winning players.

Virtue Fusion also run plenty of regular enhanced prize money promotions throughout the month. Coming up next is the £500K Weekend at the end of the month.  Many Virtue Fusion bingo sites have their own exclusive promotions and here are some of the best:

Buzz Bingo have a Halloween version of their free daily game on site from noon to midnight every day in October – the Spooky Spinner.  As with some of the previous versions of this promotion, there are two different prize tables – one for players who have previously deposited £10 or more (guaranteed to win something) and one for those who haven’t (50% chance of winning a prize).   Prizes are slot spins on Pumpkin Bonanza, bingo bonus, entry to a free bingo session or a discount voucher for electronic bingo at a Buzz club and for those who have deposited £10+ only, there are 25 cash prizes of £5 – £100 to be won every day.  Buzz also have a slot prize draw until 20th and a second chance offer on Bingo Millions 75 until 29th (buy a strip of 5 tickets and if you don’t win a cash prize, claim a bonus strip of 5 to the next game).

Sun Bingo have the Pragmatic Play network “Edge of Space” leaderboard promotions.  The first promotion runs until 14th October and has a top prize of a £10,000 VIP Adventure Trip to New Zealand plus 999 other cash prizes.  Scoring is based on the highest single spin win relative to bet value on any of 9 Pragmatic Play games, and there is a minimum 50p spin value to qualify. The second promotion in the series starts on 5th November.

Mecca Bingo have the £1000 Freebie Game promotion, every Monday to Thursday until the end of October.  The five £200 games take place in the Meccarena Room between 8pm and 9pm.  Premiere Jackpots are a new innovation in 10 of their bingo rooms; each jackpot has 5 levels ranging from a fixed £10 that can drop several times a day to a progressive of up to £10,000 that can be won twice a month.  Every weekday until the end of October, there is a £1000 prize draw which can be entered by playing £10 in any of the Premiere Jackpots bingo rooms; non winning players get a share of £1000 the following Monday.  Mecca’s BOB bingo game (it stands for Best Odds Bingo) is 1 year old and every Wednesday until the end of October, there’s an unlimited cashback on losses offer on BOB 50p games.  To qualify, play £10 cash or more on BOB 50p and if you don’t win anything, your entire stake will be refunded the following day.

Gala Bingo have the ongoing promotion, £10K Happy Hour, which consists of several £1K games timetabled for Saturday evenings, all with a 20p ticket price and the Roll On feature. The Big Bingo promotion runs in the Castle Room every day in October but this is just an enhancement of the usual bingo schedule with extra prizes.  The £50K Great Gala Spin Off is a slot draw with a difference, running from 7th – 27th October. Opt in, deposit and spend £20 on Big Banker, the Goonies, Reel King Mega, Action Bank, Starburst and/or Irish Frenzy to qualify; that is worth one entry and each additional £20 of play awards another entry.  ONE lucky player will win a whopping £25,000 cash and the other £25,000 will be split between everyone else, weighted according to how much they played.

If there was a prize for clear explanations of promotions it would be won by William Hill Bingo who have a very detailed and informative pop-up for each of the offers on their promotions page; they have just added a free daily game, The Bonus Drop, which will be on site for at least the next 4 months.

Paddy Power Bingo have some great regular promotions including the Paddy’s Cash Reel daily promotion which awards a cash prize of 20p – £100.  To qualify, spend £10 on bingo tickets.  Paddy are always the masters of controversial and topical humour, and this month they have dubbed the network Deal Or No Deal enhanced prize promotion “Brexit Bingo – so good you won’t want to leave”!

Betfred Bingo have a regular bonus back promotion; to qualify play £5 or more on bingo during the week.  The bonus back is 5% of stakes and is paid as a bingo bonus up to £25 with a single playthrough requirement and 6 day expiry.

Other Bingo Promotions

The Gamesys sites Heart Bingo and Jackpot Joy run excellent promotions – typically prize draws offering the chance to win a Box Bonanza game.  This is a pick-me where the player is shown three boxes to choose from (most, but not necessarily all boxes contain a mystery cash prize).  Entry is via meeting a spend requirement on a specified game and players are usually restricted to one entry per day or even one entry altogether.   Bingo is also back on the menu at Virgin Games so we expect some good promotions to be run there too.

Kitty Bingo and other sites on the Daub Alderney software used to run a promotion most weeks (not necessarily the same one at all sites) whereby players can deposit and/or play Monday – Thursday to collect some kind of reward on Friday, but now Kitty has an ongoing Prize Wheel promotion; spin (once per day) after making a deposit of £10 or £20 to win slot bonus or spins (but there’s a 15% chance of winning nothing).  The prizes are valid for 24 hours and have a 25x wagering requirement, with a max win of £5 on spins and a max convertible of 5x on slot bonus.  This week (until 20th) Kitty also have the Power Pots Tournament; this is a straightforward leaderboard race with one point awarded for each £10 of play on the featured slots.  The top 100 win prize and the top prize is £100.

Unibet and Bingo.com which are both on the Relax Gaming bingo platform usually have a slot tournament running, the kind where the aim is to get the best score in a certain number of rounds (sometimes 20 but often just 1 – the lucky spin format).  For the next 4 weeks, however, bingo.com are doing something different and having a Game of The Week promotion; until 20th, the slot to play is Big Bad Wolf.   Until 2nd November, the Million Cash Spin Drop promotion is live. 1006 drops of cash spins will be made every day, to active players in the bingo room designated in the lobby.  There’s also a new mini game, Bling N Reels, which is the featured game for a series of three weekly tournaments, the first of which is live now.

Tombola’s daily game Worlds costs 1p a day to play and has an estimated £35,000 in prizes each week; so far, over £400,000 has been won by more than 20,000 players.   Tombola also have two new bingo games – Picture Bingo and Potion. October’s big promotion is The Big Link – a £10,000 game which plays at 9pm every night.

Nektan bingo sites on the new Pragmatic Play bingo platform have a £1000 weekly free game, playing at 8pm every Saturday until 16th November.  There’s also £300K+ of prizes to be won in the 90 ball Jackpot Room during October. On the slots site, they have the Pragmatic Play Edge of Space leaderboard promotions.

Dragonfish bingo sites have plenty of promotions but they rarely change from month to month and many consist of deposit codes sent by email to selected players.  Occasionally sites like Costa Bingo and Iceland Bingo have one-off promotions. Chit Chat Bingo & sister sites including the newly revamped charity site Pink Ribbon Bingo have a bonus calendar showing which deposit based offer can be claimed on which day – there’s bingo bonus, games bonus, bonus spins, speedy spins, jackpot spins and free bingo tickets at various times during the week.  Their exclusive Royal Room – shared with the No Wagering bingo sites Loadsa Bingo and Lovehearts Bingo – is open three times a week (one session is for VIPs only) and runs periodic party sessions.

888Ladies and sister sites run occasional seasonal specials (usually in the form of a bonus game).  Until the end of 2019, 888Ladies players can claim a “free” spin on Fluffy Favourites every day on login; however, it has a 50x wagering requirement and a deposit of £20+ in the last 7 days is required to qualify.

As far as we know the ONLY Jumpman bingo site to have exclusive promotions is Rocket Bingo  – including 5 free bingo games every day that can be played without making a deposit, an exclusive weekly jackpot game and a weekly puzzle competition via their Facebook page.    The network promotions page on Jumpman sites hasn’t changed for a long time but we know that they do send out special promotions to their players which usually involve special themed versions of the Mega Wheel with all the spins on the same slot.  Jumpman sites now also have Bingo Millions, but only the 90 ball versions (twice weekly and instant win), not 75 or 80 ball versions.  The new Jumpman site Zeus Bingo is giving away 48 free Bingo Millions tickets as part of the welcome offer.

Cozy bingo sites (the few that are left) run network slot promotions, typically bonus back or leaderboards, with some different, much better promotions (and an enhanced version of the bingo software) at Foxy Bingo including charity bingo games in aid of an animal charity, sliding jackpots, a new community jackpot bingo game and slot promotions.  Foxy are also running the Pragmatic Play Edge of Space series of slot tournaments as seen at Nektan sites and Sun Bingo.

Microgaming network promotions (when they have any – they haven’t for a while now) also tend to be slot promotions.

Slot & Casino Promotions

Powerspins have the ongoing Jackpot Jetsetter, a stunningly simple and innovative promotion with a prize of a 6 night holiday in Dubai for two people.  The holiday will go to the first Powerspins player to win a jackpot of more than £200,000 (Jackpot King, perhaps) and the promotion will run until someone wins.

At Hyper Casino the Megaways Tournament runs until 21st October on a selection of 20 Megaways slots.  The aim is to hit the biggest multiplier win (i.e. relative to stake size) and there are 19 prizes worth £3000 in all.  To qualify, register a leaderboard name and play at least 100 spins with a minimum bet of £1.

At bgo the Million Spins Drop is under way and will run until 20th October.  Play Starburst once a day for the chance to spin the Prize Wheel and win from 3 to 25 free spins.  As always at bgo these really are free spins, with the winnings paid in cash; the only proviso is that they must be used within 24 hours (not difficult as they play automatically after the Prize Wheel is spun).  More Starburst spins are to be won in the Autumn Gold Tournament which runs concurrently.  Entry is free for anyone who has made a deposit at bgo; the top 100 win 5 – 100 Starburst spins and everyone else who takes part collects 3 free spins.
