Big Money Bingo Games

Big money bingo games are part of the regular bingo timetable at Virtue Fusion bingo sites. For example, on the second Sunday of the month there’s £10K of guaranteed prizes from 7pm in the Grease bingo room and on the second Friday of the month there’s £10K in guaranteed prizes from 5pm in Rainbow Riches Bingo.

Until 28th August, Virtue Fusion sites have August Bingo Bargains – a penny bingo promotion from noon to midnight in a different room each week (5 line until 7th August, speed bingo 8th – 14th August, Grease 15th – 21st August and DOND 75 22nd – 28th August). Tickets are priced at 1p – 5p and the total prize pool is £10,000 from Sunday – Thursday and £12,000 on Fridays and Saturdays.

At Entain bingo sites, £800K Bargain Bingo runs every day in August in the main 90 ball room.  Tickets are priced at 1p or 2p and there’s £800,000 in guaranteed prize money over the course of the month.

bingo.com and Unibet have Super Saturday, a weekly 5 line game with £3000 of prizes.  Tickets are £1.50 for a strip of 3.

The big money games in bingo90 at Tombola continue into August.  £10K Multi Links plays at 9pm and 9.30pm on Mondays 8th, 15th and 22nd August with a £10,000 full house prize.   £5K Multi Links runs on Tuesday 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd August with a guaranteed £5K full house prize in the 8.30pm, 9pm and 9.30pm link games.  Birthday Big Link is at 9pm on Friday 26th August with a guaranteed £14,000 full house prize to celebrate Tombola’s 14th birthday.  Towards the end of the month there’s Back To Back Lites in bingoLite (the low cost 90 ball room) – a guaranteed £500 full house prize in every game between 8pm and 9pm, August 22nd – 28th.

Pragmatic Play normally have at least one big game each month, but in August they are instead running £15K Pretty Penny – an hour of penny bingo games from 8pm every evening.  They are 50 ball games with prizes for one line and full house, and the guaranteed prize pools for each game range from £20 to £50.

Jumpman bingo and slot sites have the exclusive Friday Fun which plays at 8pm every Friday.  Tickets are a rather steep £1 but the £2500 of prizes go all the way down to 5TG.

Prize Draw Promotions

Prize draws are pretty much a permanent feature at Gamesys sites.

Double Bubble Bingo has Double Daily Fun every day in August.  Opt in (this only needs to be done once) then collect an entry to the daily draw when you play one of their daily free games.  There’s 50 Box Bonanzas worth up to £5 to be won every day. A Lot Of Jackpot runs every day until 22nd August.  To enter a daily draw, spin the wheel on the promo page to find out what Box Bonanzas there are to be won that day then play £10 or more on any jackpot slot.

At Jackpotjoy  Quiz It is a brand new promotion that runs every Friday – Sunday until 18th December 2022. Opt in and answer all five multiple choice questions within the allotted time to be entered into the Quiz Prize Draw which has up to 200 Box Bonanza prizes worth up to £5 each.  If you answer them all correctly, you’ll also be entered into the Grand Prize Draw which has up to 10 Box Bonanza prizes worth up to £100 each.

So….what IS a Box Bonanza?  It’s a pick-me game where the player is shown three boxes to choose from and most, but not all boxes contain a mystery cash prize.

Jumpman have a monthly prize draw and for August, it’s Lights Camera Action. This month there is a top of the range Canon digital camera set worth £3000 to be won across all Jumpman bingo and slot sites.  Players get one entry for each £10 cash played on the Big Egyptian Fortune slot during the month.  There’s also the monthly Scratch For Cash which has one prize of £1000 Cash (again this is across the whole network).  Players get one entry for each £10 cash played in the Scratch Cards tab.

Betfred Bingo runs regular Cash Drop promotions; these are actually prize draws that run for a week and you enter by playing £10 on side games in the bingo lobby.  They generally have 12 cash prizes worth £1500 in all and you opt in with a code that you find on site.

At Coral Bingo the Full House Rewards monthly prize draw takes place on 1st September.  Players get one entry for each £10 they spend on bingo tickets during August. The rules have been changed this month to increase the number of winners – there’s £5000 of cash prizes ranging from £5 to £500 in value.


Daily Bonus Games

At Tombola the new free daily game, Free Vibes, has been running since January 2022.  It was originally playable twice a day, once on Tombola Bingo and once on Tombola Arcade, by all Tombola players who have opted in to SMS messaging (needed to receive a weekly activation code).  Now, there’s a new game Free Form on Tombola Bingo and Free Vibes remains on Tombola Arcade.

At Heart Bingo, there’s the Heart Bonanza free daily game (the sort where you have to collect sets of symbols over a week to win free bingo tickets, free spins or cash).  To qualify you need to have made at least 2 deposits, at least once of which must be for £10 or more and in the last 30 days.  Throughout August they also have the Summer Sizzler Wheel; prizes are cash, free tickets or free spins but a win is not guaranteed.  Each day, players can also spend £10 anywhere on site to spin the Double Sizzler Wheel and/or £100 anywhere on site to spin the Triple Sizzler Wheel.

At Paddy Power Bingo, there’s the guaranteed win game, Paddy’s Cash Reel. Spend £2 or more on bingo tickets to gain access the same day (you’ll find it in the Games area of the bingo lobby). You’re guaranteed to win at least 10p and the top prize is £100.  You can also head over to Paddy Power Games and play the daily free game Paddy’s Wonder Wheel.

At Gamesys sites there’s a choice of several different free daily games.  You play every day for a week and collect sets of symbols to win cash or free spins (you won’t win every week though).  An extra bonus game is available on the last day of the month; it’s a pick-me with one pick for each day you played a daily game and the prizes are free spins.

In two of the Gamesys daily games – Search for the Phoenix and Doubly Bubbly – you also now have the chance to win a spot prize of up to 50 spins on any pick.

William Hill Bingo is an interesting case. They don’t have a bingo welcome offer, and their daily free game which is called Bonus Drop doesn’t have any bingo related prizes – only cash, slot spins or slot bonus.

Kitty Bingo and Lucky Pants Bingo both have recently updated free daily games – Spin the Wheel at Kitty and Scratch & Win at Lucky Pants.  They are instant win games unlike the previous daily games they had where you had to collect sets of symbols over days or weeks.  The prizes are loyalty points (which can be redeeemed for Slingo bonus), slot spins or slot bonus and all come with wagering requirements and a max convertible.  You get one free play per day and can collect up to two more based on your day’s play.

Gala Bingo have a free to play daily game, Daily Free Spin.  Prizes are free spins or cash but a win is not guaranteed.

At Buzz Bingo there’s Buzz Fest, which is free to play every day until 25th August. The prizes are bingo bonus or free spins on Joker Rush, but only 20% of spins win anything. The premium version, the Buzz Fest VIP, can be unlocked by depositing and spending £10 the previous day; it’s a guaranteed win of Joker Rush spins.  Until 28th August they also have the Big Wheel Bonus Spinner which can be played after staking £30 cash on the slot of the same name in a day and is guaranteed to award up to 50 free spins; only 3.5% of plays, however, result in a win of more than 10 spins.  Spins have a 48 hour expiry.  This promotion has been running for quite a while but Buzz have been keeping it fresh by changing the slot game every 2 weeks, so expect to see a new game feature on the spinner from 29th August onwards.

Foxy Bingo has Foxy’s Freebies, every day until further notice.  It’s a free to play pinball style game and you can win cash or free spins.

At Mecca Bingo the Summer Spinner game is on site until 31st August.  This free spin the wheel game is available from noon and awards cash or bingo bonus (with 1 x wagering) on 90% of plays, plus one prize a day of a £500 holiday voucher.  To play the premium version Summer Double Spinner, which is available from 2pm with a guaranteed win and bigger prizes including at least one £1000 holiday voucher every day, you need to have deposited and spent £10 the day before.

New Games

Tombola’s new game Reel Bingo came out at the end of May and on Tombola Arcade, there’s the new time limited Festival scratch game. Also new at Tombola is the Paint By Numbers bingo game.

At Betfred Bingo there’s Giddy Up Bingo, a single ticket multi stake 50 ball bingo game themed on a horse race.

Ladbrokes Bingo and other Entain bingo sites have the new 90 ball bingo game Bingo Boom.

The latest Slingo game is Slingo Stampede.

Fluffy Favourites Remastered is out now and brings vastly improved graphics to the much loved slot game.  Unfortunately it also has a significantly lower RTP than the original game – 93.290% whereas in the old version it’s 95.388%.

For more news about the latest slot game releases please visit the New Slot Games page.

Deposit / Play Promotions

Heart Bingo moved to Pragmatic Play back in September 2021 and has lots of exclusive bingo rooms and promotions.  Each week at Heart (Friday – Thursday) you can opt in, deposit and spend £10 on bingo or slots to open a Deluxe Box containing free bingo tickets, free spins and/or cash.  They also have a Slot of the Week promotion most weeks; opt in and play £10 on the featured game to collect 5 free spins on the same slot again.  The promotion actually has 4 tiers and you can collect up to 50 extra free spins by playing more (details on site).  Each day until 21st August, you can Net A Bonus Box by opting in and playing £20 on the featured NetEnt slots.  The prizes are slot bonus with a single playthrough requirement and 7 day expiry.

There’s no requirement to make a deposit for these last two promotions but you may find you need to to meet the spend requirement.

Every Tuesday and Thursday until 18th August on Tombola Arcade, there’s the opportunity to unlock two Bloomin’ Marvellous scratchcards, one between 8am and 10am and one between 8pm and 10pm, in each case by playing £1 real money on any arcade game. The cards need to be played by 11am and 11pm respectively; match three to win a prize of £1 to £500.


Slots Tourneys are a recent and very popular innovation at Gala Bingo; they are free slots tournaments which run for 12 hours, noon till midnight and midnight to noon the next day.  Opt in to collect 20 tournament spins on the featured slot and see how many points you score on the leaderboard; prizes are free spins or cash.  And now, another Entain site, Foxy Bingo, is trying out some tournaments too.  Look for the Showdown tab on site to see what’s on.

PlayOJO is a great place for slot tournaments.  They are called Reel Spinoffs; some (Freerolls) are free to enter and others you pay to enter (usually £1 each time).  You’ll be given a set of tournament spins (not real money) on a specific slot and the aim is to score as much as possible.

Gamesys have been trying out a completely new style of slot tournament.  The Slot Masters Cash In The Keep game is a free to play multiplayer, social slot; in a battle round, players have 2 minutes to score as many points as possible and can use power-ups to remove or steal points from the other two players in the round. Players can participate in up to 5 rounds a day and the score from each round is added to the leaderboard; the week long tournaments have been run at various Gamesys sites and will no doubt be back soon.

At bingo.com there’s a weekly Lucky Spin tournament (Friday – Thursday) with £10,000 of cash prizes.  Scoring is based on the biggest win relative to stake in just one spin; there’s around 20 games to choose from each week and the minimum spin value to qualify is just 20p.  Until 28th August they also have hourly, weekly and monthly Little Wins bingo tournaments, so called because the smallest prizes score the most points e.g. 20 points for 2TG (and just 1 point for FH).  There’s one prize of £100 cash each hour for the player who scores the most, £1000 of cash prizes for the top 5 each week and £10,000 of cash prizes for the top 9 overall.  Participation in the hourly tournaments is automatic but you’ll need to opt into the weekly and monthly ones.

Dragonfish network bingo sites have a bingo tournament every weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) until further notice.  To participate, players need to head for the Win Finals Tickets room at 7pm. Tickets to these games are 5p each and the prizes are: full house – 50 finals tickets + 30 spins, 2L –  25 finals tickets + 20 spins, 1L –  15 tickets & 10 spins, 1TG –  10 finals tickets, 2TG –  5 finals tickets.  The final starts at 9pm and consists of two games each with a £125 prize pool.

The £250 Fluffy Friday Tournament continues to run every Friday at Jumpman sites from 7pm-10pm with points awarded for the biggest wins, but be aware that the latest games in the series, Fluffy Megaways and Fluffy Favourites Remastered, aren’t included.

The Pragmatic Drops & Wins promotion is a widely networked and long running slot promotion which started back in the spring of 2020, with more than £500K to be won in each 4 week promotional period.  It’s already been extended many times and has now been extended yet again, to run until 24th August 2022 at most sites with Pragmatic Play slots including Buzz Bingo.   The Drops part of the promotion consists of 500 randomly triggered cash prizes per day (of up to £1000 cash) and the Wins part is a weekly leaderboard with scoring based on the largest single spin win relative to stake and 1500 cash prizes each week (with a top prize of £10,000 cash).  To participate, players opt in within any of the qualifying games:

  • Wolf Gold

In this iteration of the promotion, the minimum spin value is 50p.  When the promotion restarts after 24th August the rules may be tweaked slightly (minimum spin value, number of prizes, top prize value) and the list of games will change to include some new releases as it has been doing every 4 weeks. The really popular titles like Wolf Gold and Big Bass Bonanza tend to be included every time.  At most sites the games that are included are clearly marked “Drops & Wins” in the lobby so there’s no need to memorise the list!

Free Bingo Promotions

At Gala Bingo there’s 40 free bingo games every day in the Prosecco Room (interspersed with pay games). The prizes are £20 for full house, £15 for 2L, £5 for 1L and £15 community share, for a total of £2000 in daily prize money.  There’s extra free bingo by invitation, for players who are over 50.

Virtue Fusion sites have lots of free bingo.  For example:

At Buzz Bingo the free bingo is in the recently introduced 80 ball Go Go Bingo! Room. It runs from 10am until 1pm and 3pm until 6pm every day.  The prizes are small (£3 cash prize pool per game) and the games are all Superbooks (pay to upgrade tickets for a bigger prize) so be careful not to select Superbooks by mistake when claiming tickets.
