Last update: 22nd September 2020
This page presents a round-up of the current month’s best and most interesting promotions at online bingo and slot sites. Big money games, prize draws, tournaments, freebies and daily bonus promotions are some of things we include, but to make the “outstanding” list, they have to have big prizes, tons of entertainment value or both. New bingo sites occasionally open with a special promotion, but it’s mostly well established sites that come up with the really good stuff.
Buzz Bingo have the £130,000 Cash Climber jackpot, an escalator jackpot promotion running in their exclusive Value Room (in most bingo games, not including BingoLinx or Grab A Share). At the start of the month, for the jackpot to drop full house must be won in 34 calls or fewer; the ball count goes up by one every Monday until 24th September. The promotion ends when the jackpot drops, but it’s very unlikely that will happen until the evening of 27th September when the ball count goes to 40 at 4pm and increments by 3 calls an hour. If you buy a ticket to a game shortly after 4pm you’ve got less than one chance in a million of winning the jackpot, but the chances of someone winning go up sharply as the ball count goes up and we expect it to drop some time during the evening; if it doesn’t it will drop on the final game of the evening at 23:55. It’s a community jackpot, with half going to the full house winner or winners and the other half split between all tickets in play, and ticket prices vary from 3p to 8p.
Buzz also run slot tournaments every Wednesday until further notice – plus a one off big one this week – and there’s a free daily game, the Birthday Spinner, with bingo bonus, free spins and other goodies to be won.
Mecca Bingo have brought back their very popular Dream Come True promotion for September. It’s free to spin the daily wheel (available from noon to midnight every day until 27th September), for an 88% chance of winning a prize which will be spins, bonus, cash, free bingo or a prize draw entry. There’s also a Premium version of the wheel with bigger prizes, for players who deposited and spent £10 or more the previous day. The draw takes place every Friday from 10pm and prizes include celebrity makeovers, iPads and iPhones, holiday vouchers and £50 of free bingo a week for a year.
Tombola‘s September promotions include Bingo90 Blowout which takes place from 9pm to 10pm every Monday in September; it’s 11 consecutive link games with the full house prize starting at £5000 and increasing by £500 per game to reach £10000 in the 10pm game. There’s also £5000 to be won at 9pm in BingoLite every Friday in September in The Big Link Lite game, plus special events for Blocks, Potion, Paper and the new game Hex. Tombola have also just replaced their daily free game Trio with the vastly superior (in our opinion anyway) 4Free which awards up to £40,000 of cash prizes each week. And you can play it twice a day! – once at Tombola and once at Tombola Arcade.
The Pragmatic Drops & Wins promotion is a widely networked and long running slot promotion which is available until 23rd September at many sites with Pragmatic Play slots – Sun Bingo, Nektan bingo sites including Mighty Jackpots and Jumpman sites such as Mirror Bingo are a few that have it. The Drops part of the promotion consists of 79 randomly triggered multiplier prizes per day and the Wins part is a weekly leaderboard with scoring based on the largest single spin win relative to stake. To participate, players opt in within any of the qualifying games:
There’s no minimum stake to qualify so in theory it’s possible to win a prize from either part of the promotion with one 10p spin.
Bingo.com on the Relax Gaming bingo platform have a new game, HexaBingo, with 9 numbers on the card and just 3 players per game; the first to score a horizontal line wins. Until 11th October, there are bingo missions to complete every day with HexaBingo tickets and other goodies to be claimed The new game and the promotion are also live at Unibet.
Bingo.com are also running a bingo tournament every weekend (Saturday and Sunday) until the end of September. 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 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).
The Virtue Fusion network promotion for September is Autumn Escalators, running in a different network room every Friday. This is the final week of the promotion and on Friday 25th September there’s a minimum £5000 to be won in the network 90 ball room.
Dragonfish bingo sites including Lovehearts Bingo and Pink Ribbon Bingo also have an escalator jackpot promotion. The Must Go Jackpot runs in various 90 ball rooms including Chatterbox, 90s Extreme, and Even Stevens and normally only drops if someone wins bingo in 32 calls (which is eye poppingly unlikely). On Friday evenings until further notice, the ball count will increase from 4pm onwards and the jackpot is guaranteed to drop by 11pm. The seed value is only £100 but the jackpot is typically well in excess of that when Friday evening rolls round.
At Betfred Bingo, in Free Tickets for Fall, there are 100 sets of 10 free bingo tickets to be won (useable on the final Autumn Escalator ). The draw is free to enter – simply opt in on the promotions page.
Jumpman bingo sites and Jumpman slot sites have a prize draw called Rainbow Jackpots Giveaway. There are prizes for the top three (or cash alternatives) of a £1000 Amazon voucher, a Phillips 70 inch 4K Smart TV and a Roomba robot vacuum cleaner . Players get one entry for each £10 played on Rainbow Jackpots in the month of September. Jumpman have also just added a special version of the Mega Wheel / Mega Reel to be spun on a player’s birthday, to win spins on the Happy Birthday slot game.
Gala Bingo are giving away 20,000 free bingo tickets every day until 30th September, split equally between all the players who spent £5 or more on bingo the previous day. The free tickets can be redeemed in games where the ticket price is 10p or less in roooms bearing the Free Tickets symbol and are valid for 7 days with no wagering requirement on winnings. There’s also a free daily game every day in September with more free tickets and other goodies to be won.
Paddy Power Bingo also have a free tickets promotion which started on September 17th. 200,000 free tickets will be given away in 3 weekly draws. To enter, opt in and get one entry for each £5 played in the eligible bingo rooms, Friday – Thursday. Prizes range from 10 to 500 free tickets and the eligible rooms change from week to week; until 24th September they are Deal Or No Deal 90, Green Room, Diamond Room, Topaz Room, Cash Cubes, Titanium Room and Super Bargain Room and the following week, until 1st October they are Rainbow Riches, Age of the Gods Bingo, Crystal Room, Silver Room, Sapphire Room and Pearl Room. The free tickets can be redeemed against bingo tickets costing up to 10p in rooms bearing the Free Tickets symbol; they are valid for 5 days and there’s no wagering requirements.
William Hill Bingo have a daily free game, Bonus Explorer, which runs until at least 30th September and works a bit differently to the others; 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. They also run regular slot promotions.
Foxy Bingo are running a free daily game, Foxy’s Shootout, until 4th October; the prizes are bingo tickets, prize draw tickets or a deposit bonus offer. There’s also several slot promotions plus a £500 bingo game every evening and a monthly £15K sliding jackpot game (networked with other GVC bingo sites).
Chit Chat Bingo and sister sites are running Crack The Safe, a promotion that is mostly for high rollers. The aim is for all players, collectively, to score one million points (at the rate of one point for every £2 of slots play) and this has to be done by 4th October. The top three on the leaderboard win an Apple Watch, an Amazon Echo and a £25 Amazon Gift Card respectively, players who scored 10K points or more share a £1000 cash pot and players who scored less than 10K points share 1000 spins (these have a 7 day expiry and 40x wagering, with a max conversion of £100).
Sun Bingo have £1000 of free bingo every day until 24th September. 10 games play in the Cabaret Room (alternating with paid games) between noon and pm and another 10 between 5pm and 7pm. Each game has a prize pot of £50, half which is community share, and the only entry requirement is to have an account at Sun. Until 27th September, there’s also Autumn Wardrobe, a prize draw with £1500 of Love2Shop vouchers to be won (top prize a £500 voucher). After opting in with code SHOP, players get one entry for each £10 of cash play during the promo period.
Heart Bingo have some prize draws with Box Bonanza prizes. Play £5 on any Slingo game before 24th September to enter Slingo Stars. Another runs every weekend (Friday – Sunday) until 4th October; play the card matching game on the promo page to reveal a Red Tiger daily jackpots game then play £5 on the selected game to enter the daily draw. Reel Reveal runs daily until 30th September; spin the reels on the promo page to reveal a slot game and again, play £5 on it to enter the draw. What is a Box Bonanza, you may ask? It’s a pick-me game where the player is shown three boxes to choose from (most, but not all boxes contain a mystery cash prize). Box Bonanzas can be won at other Gamesys sites too. Oh yes, and they also all have a choice of two or three different free daily games!
