Last update: 3rd July 2020
This page presents 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.
Virtue Fusion run plenty of regular enhanced prize money promotions throughout the month culminating in the £500K Weekend on the final Friday/Saturday/Sunday of the month. Every Friday evening until 3rd July, there’s an escalator jackpot in a different network room with a minimum jackpot of £5000 (split 50/50 between the FH winner and all other tickets in the game). The escalator starts at 6pm and the jackpot is guaranteed to be won by midnight. The final escalator on 3rd July is in the Deal Or No Deal 90 ball room.
Many Virtue Fusion bingo sites have their own exclusive promotions and here are some of the best:
Buzz Bingo have a Daily Spinner version of their free daily game until 5th July. There’s a 50% chance of winning a prize and the possibilities are 50p bingo bonus, entry to a free bingo session, a stake £10 get 5 spins offer, a prize draw entry (to a weekly £2500 draw) or 5 free spins. Upside Down Bingo started on July 2nd in the Roll On Room and will run every Thursday, with the prize for one line in every game (apart from BingoLinx games) bigger than the prize for full house. Also at Buzz, there’s a new speed version of the Bingo Millions game called Bingo Millions Turbo.
Sun Bingo have brought back their Everyone’s a Winner daily prize draw promotion, on site until 5th July. Each day, there is one top prize of £1000 cash, 100 x £5 bingo bonus, 500 x £2 bingo bonus, 1500 x 5 spins on Buffalo Blitz 2 and 50p bingo bonus for all other entrants; players get one entry for each £5 of play and can enter as many times as they like, but are limited to one prize per draw. The bingo bonus has a 2x wagering requirement and 3 day expiry and the slot spins have a 24 hour expiry and a 40x wagering requirement.
Mecca Bingo have a new daily free game, CodeCracker. To play, you’ll need to have deposited and played £5 in the preceding 5 days. Each day, pick a ball to win bingo bonus, free spins or cash (90% of spins win a prize). A new letter appears on the game every day and on Sunday, players can solve the anagram and enter the answer as a code to enter a £1000 prize draw. There’s also a new Room Of The Week promotion with enhanced prizes and a bonus offer – this week (until 5th July) it’s Burst Bingo.
Gala Bingo have the new Win Win Bingo promotion, in the Castle Room until further notice. During the afternoon and evening, two Win Win Bingo games play every hour with prizes of £30+. Players can buy up to 6 tickets per game (at 1p or 2p each, using cash or bonus) and players who do not win a prize will have their ticket money refunded as bingo bonus (valid for 7 days). For low cost, low risk entertainment value this promotion is pretty well unbeatable.
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 switched to a new version of their daily free game, Bonus Explorer, in which players collect sets of three symbols over the course of a week’s play (bizarrely, a week is Wednesday – Tuesday) to win slot or casino bonus or free spins. Bonus Explorer runs until at least 22nd July.
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 for the following day, spend £10 on bingo tickets.
Gamesys sites including 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. Gamesys have some exciting new bingo progressive jackpots called Powerbolts that are guaranteed to drop daily.
Kitty Bingo and other sites on the Daub Alderney software used to run weekly specials but now they are concentrating on free daily games and monthly prize draws (qualify for both through play). These sites have really been beefing up on the slots side and have recently added Red Tiger daily jackpots and Jackpot King to their repertoire.
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’s a bingo tournament every weekend (Saturday and Sunday). Scoring is on number of line wins and the top 10 win slot spins (with a 25x wagering requirement) – the top prize is a massive 1000 spins and throughout July, the spins are on Book Of Dead. Also every weekend (Friday – Monday) there’s a tournament on their exclusive minigames. The aim is to get the biggest win relative to stake over 20 rounds and there’s prizes for the top 30 (the top prize is a non trivial £300).
At Tombola the new match-3 game Trio started back in January. It’s free to play, with up to £35,000 of cash prizes each week. There’s lot going on during July, including a £25,000 Super Link game every Monday evening, the Blocks birthday bash on 31st and a Pride themed makeover of the Hamster Race game running for the whole month. Tombola have also been busy on the Arcade side – there’s a new addition to their Spin suite of slot games, a 243 way game called Phoenix. Like all their games it can be played from 5p a spin. There’s also a new Arcade version of classic Tombola game Cinco.
Nektan bingo sites on the new Pragmatic Play bingo platform including Mighty Jackpots and Pretty Riches continue to run the Daily Heavy Weight Jackpot game which plays at 9pm with a FH prize of £500 and tickets priced at 25p, and the new Blast speed bingo game has also been rolled out.
As far as we know the ONLY Jumpman bingo site to have exclusive promotions is Rocket Bingo – including a weekly puzzle competition via social media. They no longer have any free bingo, but hope to bring it back soon and run it at sister sites including the newly launched Bingo.Games. 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/or promotions run by slot game providers (e.g. Daily Drops & Wins) The big news at Jumpman is that they are now running on Pragmatic Play, the same bingo platform – and most of the same bingo rooms – as the Nektan sites. Not only is this a MASSIVE improvement in terms of both choice of games and prize value, but Jumpman have more bingo rooms than the Nektan sites.
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 at sites such as Costa Bingo.
Chit Chat Bingo & sister sites 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. Most of these sites have now migrated to the new “Snow White” version of the Dragonfish bingo lobby and this is proving popular with players. A recent innovation is “Social Bingo” – play-for-fun (not real money) 75 and 90 ball bingo rooms where players can go to play and hang out.
888Ladies and sister sites run occasional seasonal specials (usually in the form of a bonus game). 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. 888Ladies also have a recently introduced promotion called Rewarding Wins whereby hitting personal win targets awards free spins but again, these have a 50x wagering requirement (and a win cap).
Cozy bingo sites (the few that are left) have little in the way of appealing promotions and many of the slot games have been removed, leaving only a small selection of Microgaming and Cozy own brand titles. The owners of the Cozy product, GVC, have an enhanced version of the Cozy bingo software which can be found at Foxy Bingo along with a huge and varied selection of slots and some much better promotions including the new Cash Out bingo game . In a shock move, Coral Bingo has moved to the GVC platform after years on Virtue Fusion and now it has also been followed by Ladbrokes Bingo. Currently there are fewer bingo rooms and promotions than at Foxy but we expect more in the future. The £20K sliding jackpot game on 4th July and the daily £500 Boosted Bingo game are playing at both Cozy skins and GVC sites.
Microgaming network promotions (when they have any – they haven’t for a while now) also tend to be slot promotions. Microgaming bingo was due to be launched at lots more sites last year but after months and months of delays, quite the reverse is happening and it now seems that the bingo product is going to be shelved completely (we don’t yet know when).
Hyper Casino have recently introduced a 10% cashback promotion, which can be claimed after 24 hours on any losses from a deposit that didn’t come with a bonus offer. They also have a monthly themed slot tournament with £3000 of bonus prizes (10 x wagering requirement) for the top 19 players. July’s “Jungle Rumble” tournament is based on the biggest multiplier win at a minimum spin value of £1 and players must make 100 or more spins to qualify.
