Last update: 11th December 2019
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.
The main Virtue Fusion network promotion for November & December is a rerun of the always popular Million Pound Slots Giveaway. Eight prize draws take place, on Mondays and Fridays until 13th December. Players get one entry to the next draw for each £10 of play on the featured slots. In this final week, the double ticket slot is Fireworkz Blitz and the other qualifying slots are Bouncy Balls, Big Top Tombola and Snow Queen’s Magic from 6th – 8th December and George and the Dragon, Age of the Gods Lord of Lightning and Cleopatra’s Chest from 9th – 12th December.
Virtue Fusion also have a recently introduced 90 ball bingo room themed on that much loved film, Grease, open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays only, with a fixed jackpot of £100 for anyone who wins full house on a number ending in one (you’re the one that I want…). Ticket prices start at 2p. The new room is NOT available at all Virtue Fusion sites, however – Mecca Bingo and Betfred Bingo are two which definitely have it.
Virtue Fusion run plenty of regular enhanced prize money promotions throughout the month. Many Virtue Fusion bingo sites have their own exclusive promotions and here are some of the best:
Buzz Bingo have a prize draw every day from 1st – 12th December. The prize is a luxury Christmas hamper; to enter, deposit and play £10 on bingo. The Buzz free daily game for December is called Christmas Cracker and is styled like a slot machine. As with previous versions of the daily game, there are two versions, one where a win is guaranteed and one where a win is not guaranteed; to play the guaranteed win version requires a deposit of £10+ in the last 30 days. Buzz also have a very exciting new Live section with a free to play daily trivia game which currently has £500 in cash to be won every day.
Sun Bingo have extended their no deposit welcome offer until Boxing Day. The £10 bonus has a 4x wagering requirement and can be used in the Jewels bingo room (which alternates 75 ball games with 90 ball games) only. They also have an Advent Calendar style promotion called Christmas Countdown; to open a window and collect a guaranteed prize, a player must have spent £5 cash on bingo or slots (in the bingo lobby only) the day before. Most of the prizes are small amounts of bingo bonus with a 3x wagering requirement and 1 day expiry but some are cash.
Mecca Bingo have brought back their very popular Mecca Dream Come True promotion from 25th November to 19th December. The draws take place on Fridays at 10pm and are live streamed with celebrity guests; each week, there are 10 prizes up for grabs from a selection including VIP tickets to concerts and to the National Television Awards, £1000 holiday vouchers, a celebrity makeover, a 2 night stay at a very special hotel, iPhones, iPads and more. Players can win entries on the daily prize wheels (there’s a free version and a premium version for players who deposited and played £10 the day before). Each Friday, 1000 draw entries will be randomly chosen from all entries collected between the start of the promotion and midnight on the Thursday, to go into the live draw. Mecca also have some bingo sessions with enhanced prizes to go with the promotion.
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. Until 1st January there’s a daily free game, Keith’s Win Hit Wonders Wheel, with a top prize of £500 cash; other prizes include free spins and mystery bonuses. Ride To Rewards runs on a weekly cycle until 29th December; after opting in, deposit and spend £10 cash on exclusive Gala Gold games to start on the track, reach the first of the 5 waypoints and collect 5 free spins. Each further £1 played on Gala Gold games moves you one step on the track and at each of the other 4 waypoints you will qualify for a cash sharepot. Gala also have a new bingo game, Bingo Beats.
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 recently added a free daily game, The Bonus Drop, which will be on site for at least the next 4 months, and they also have various slot promotions.
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.
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. Just started and running all the way through until the end of March 2020 is the Betfred Bingo Win A Car promotion. Eleven Win A Car games play every day in the Betfred Bingo Mystery Room with tickets priced at 10p each (apart from the 15.30 game which is free to enter). The prize for each game is determined by the number on which Full House is called and most are small amounts of bonus, Betfred merchandise, free scratchcards or entry to a £1000 bingo game. There’s a few nicer items including TVs and experience vouchers and to win the car, you’ll need to complete Full House on number 43. There is no maximum number of cars in the promotion so the more games that are won on 43, the more cars they give away.
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. Heart have also just revamped all their bingo rooms and right now (until 15th December) there is a Box Bonanza prize draw in the Festival Time bingo room with 150 prizes. Play £5 on bingo to enter (one entry only per player allowed). Until 25th December, Heart have an Advent Calendar promotion which is basically a daily prize draw; shake the snowglobe to see what the prize of the day is then play £1 on any game to enter the draw. Each draw has five of the prizes of the day plus 50 Box Bonanza games to be won – apart from 25th, when the main prize is a £2500 holiday voucher and there is only one of them.
Kitty Bingo and other sites on the Daub Alderney software 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. At the moment, however, there is a special Christmas edition of the Kitty daily board game; to qualify players must have played £2 or more in the preceding 7 days. Kitty also 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.
Unibet and Bingo.com which are both on the Relax Gaming bingo platform often 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). At the moment there is a promotion for the launch of the pirate themed slot game Jolly Dicers. From 29th November – 5th December, play the Buried Treasure tournament which has 250 prizes worth £10,000 in all for the best equalised wins over 20 rounds. From 6th – 12th December, play the Pirates Life Prize Draw; again there are 250 prizes of up to £2500 and this time players get two draw entries for every £20 of play on Jolly Dicers and one entry for every £20 of play on any other slot.
Tombola have just retired their daily game Worlds and we’re not sure whether it will be back in the New Year or replaced by something else. In the meantime, the Tombola Advent Calendar and the Tombola Christmas Raffle (which has £50,000 of prizes including iPhone 11 Pro and a £2500 holiday) are both now live. The Advent Calendar, which is for anyone who played £2 or more during November, works in the usual way – collect a symbol each day and claim a prize when you have a set of 3. Players can win more than one prize and if you play every day until 24th you’re guaranteed to win something. Tombola have also introduced three new bingo games in the last few months – Picture Bingo , Potion and Morph.
Nektan bingo sites on the new Pragmatic Play bingo platform have some newly introduced weekly slot spin promotions. On the slots side, they have the Pragmatic Play Edge of Space leaderboard promotions; the final stage is now live and runs 3rd – 10th December. Scoring is based on the highest single spin win and the top prize is the £10,000 Igloo Under the Stars trip. The top scoring player across all three tounraments wins the zero G experience for 2 people.
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 there are 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.
Costa Bingo seems to be returning to its former glory as far as exclusive promotions are concerned, but after giving away a holiday every day for a few weeks, and running a series of £5000 bingo games, they are taking a rest with the exclusives. Some special seasonal bingo games including mystery jackpots of up to £1000 and a £10K game on Christmas Day are being advertised but they are widely networked across many Dragonfish sites.
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. They also have a Spin the Xmas Wheel deposit based promotion; the maximum number of spins that can be won on the wheel depends on the size of deposit made.
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 and we believe they are also participating in the Pragmatic Play Edge of Space promotions. Jumpman sites now also have Bingo Millions, including 75, 80 and 90 ball instant games and the Mega Millions. 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 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.
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.
bgo have two promotions running until 8th December. One is a straightforward leaderboard promotion running with scoring based on total spend (on any game apart from bingo, opt-in required). The prizes are tech items and free spins. The other is a NetEnt prize draw with £150,000 of prizes; get one ticket for each £20 of play on Jingle Spin, Santa vs Rudolf, Secrets of Christmas or Finn and the Swirly Spin.
PlayOJO and sister sites have the Come Fly With Us promotion which lasts until 5th January and consists of 5 weekly tournaments. Players can claim 1 free ticket a day for the rest of the week (apart from the last day) once they have completed 100+ real money spins on the slot of the week, and buy additional tickets for £1 each. Each ticket triggers 20 Tournament Spins; these are not real money and their sole purpose is to determine the player’s position on the leaderboard. The first prize is a 10 day holiday to Jamaica for 2 people and there are runner up prizes of gadgets and free spins. The slots of the week are:
