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.
We expect April's promotions to focus on Easter and on the Grand National horse race.
Playtech Bingo Promotions
The Virtue Fusion network promotion for April runs in the network 90 ball room, every evening in April from 8pm - 10pm. The total daily prize fund is £20,000 and this is made up of a big money game every half hour with XTG and Roll On games in between. Ticket prices are from 5p - 20p.
Many Virtue Fusion bingo sites have their own exclusive promotions and here are some of the best:
Buzz Bingo have yet another daily free game on site until 30th April, the Big Buzz Bingo Giveaway. Once a day on login, players can pick one of the three treasure chests. Prizes are slot spins, bingo bonus, entry to a free bingo session or a cash prize (two lucky players will win £5000 each in the course of the promotion). Buzz also have a couple of regular slot promotions that are well worth checking out, and a new 90 ball game coming soon, Bingo Millions, which awards fixed prizes for completing lines in a set number of calls - including an eye popping £1.5 million for anyone who wins Full House in 30 or fewer calls. The game was due to launch a couple of weeks ago but it looks like there were some teething problems as it doesn't currently seem to be available.
Sun Bingo have the Whack A Bingo Springtime Edition daily free game on site until April 29th. To qualify, players must have deposited in the last 30 days and played £2 cash on bingo or minigames the day before. Prizes are bingo bonus, all games bonus or cash (with no wagering requirements or expiry on the bonus prizes).
Mecca Bingo have a set of Britain's Got Talent promotions, running until the end of May. The Cash Climber bingo games take place on Saturdays in the exclusive Britain's Got Talent bingo room; they run from 8pm - 10pm with a prize fund of £5000 each week and a ticket price of 10p. Players can collect up to 6 free tickets to these games Monday-Thursday, by playing bingo (3 tickets per £15 of cash play or 6 tickets if it is in the Britain's Got Talent bingo room). As usual with this type of promotions, players have to be in the bingo room while the games are running for the tickets to play. There's also some free bingo games in the Britain's Got Talent room on Wednesday and Sunday evenings until 26th May, plus various slot promotions including a regular Game of the Week bonus back.
Mecca also have a money back guarantee on their Best Odds Bingo game aka BOB. This runs every day until further notice and to qualify players need to play £10 cash or more on BOB in a day. If they don't win anything (most players will as the chance of winning at least one full house in an hour is 72%) they can claim 100% of their stake back in cash the following day (valid for 7 days).
Really piling it on this month, Mecca also have a free daily spin the wheel game on site until April 30th.
Gala Bingo have the ongoing promotion, £10K Happy Hour. The 10 x £1000 bingo games play on Saturday evenings in the City and Castle rooms with a ticket price of 20p. All 10 games have the Roll On feature active.
William Hill Bingo have a free bingo promotion in four of their bingo rooms from 6pm to 10.30pm, every weekday in April. The free games play on the hour and half hour and each has a prize fund of £50 cash. William also usually have a slot promotion running - promo periods are generally Mon - Thurs and Fri - Sun.
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. At the moment, Heart has a daily bingo prize draw promotion (until 25th April) with Box Bonanza games to be won.
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. This week (22nd - 25th April) there is a slot sharepot, seeded at £500 plus £1 for each £10 played on the Spartacus Legendary Warrior slot. The sharepot will be split between all the players who opted in and played £10+ on the slot. Also running for the whole of April is a daily £1000 cash prize draw. Players get one entry for each £10 of cash play that day and one lucky player wins the whole £1000. There's a weekly runners up draw for all players who enter but don't win, with 100 prizes of a free card to a £20,000 bingo game to be played on 30th April (normal card price 50p).
Kitty Bingo also have the new daily bonus game Catford Square which has clearly been inspired by a popular TV soap. All players with £2 or more of real cash play in the last 7 days get one free dice roll per day; after using the free roll they can collect extra rolls (a maximum of 2 per day) by playing £25 cash. Catford Square is a board game and the aim is to collect 3 of the same symbol to win a prize; one square on the board also awards a spot £1 cash when landed on. A version of the game is also available at the Daub casino site Magical Vegas - where it is called What Happens In Vegas and themed accordingly and now Lucky Pants have a version too, called Pants In The Air (it requires £10 to have been wagered in the last 7 days rather than the £2 needed at Kitty, and up to 5 extra rolls can be collected per day, one for each £10 played).
Unibet and other sites 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 (normally 20 but sometimes just 1 - the lucky spin format). During April, there is a £5000 Lucky Spin tournament every day, on a different slot each time and from 23rd - 26th April there's also a Yggdrasil Missions promotion, with £1250 of daily cash prizes for the 20 players who complete the missions fastest. Until 28th April, a £2000 tournament runs in the pop up Easter Egg 75 ball bingo room which is open from 6pm - 7pm daily with a mixture of 25p and free games.
Tombola recently launched the daily game Worlds which 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. The game has now moved to a new World - it plays the same but with a different setting (the world of the Fairies). Many other promotions run in April, including lots of enhanced prizes and a free Easter raffle.
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 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 the new 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).
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.
Cozy bingo sites run network slot promotions, typically bonus back or leaderboards, with some different promotions at Foxy Bingo including the daily £400 Blooming Bingo game and Foxy's Treasure Trail, a multi level promotion where players complete challenges to open treasure chests which contain cash, bingo bonus or bonus spins. Microgaming network promotions also tend to be slot promotions.
