Latest Bingo Promotions

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.

Playtech Bingo Promotions

The main Virtue Fusion network promotion for January 2020 is a bargain bingo promotion running in a different room each week.  For 6th – 12th January it was the network 90 ball room, for 13th – 19th January it’s the network 5 line room, for 20th – 26th January it’s the speed 90 room and from 27th January – 2nd February it’s the Deal Or No Deal 75 room. The guaranteed prizes remain the same but ticket prices are reduced to between 1p and 10p.

Virtue Fusion also 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 new version of their free daily game until 2nd February called Buzz Bingo Destinations.  It’s styled like a flight departure board and as with previous daily games there are two versions, one where a win is guaranteed and one where a win is not guaranteed. To play the guaranteed win version and have a chance of winning one of the few cash or holiday gift cards requires a deposit of £10+ in the last 30 days.  Other prizes include spins, bingo bonus, entry to a free bingo room and club discounts.  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 and the live version of the Buffalo Blitz slot.  Also until 2nd February, Buzz have a prize draw promotion running Monday – Sunday each week.  Players get one entry to the next draw for each £20 they deposit and play on bingo (excluding Bingo Millions).  Each draw has a single prize of £2500 holiday vouchers from Love2Shop.  Buzz also have a new and exclusive 80 ball bingo room and slot game which is a TV tie-in with The Voice UK.

Sun Bingo have a new and more generous welcome offer and the new Virtue Fusion playing card based bingo game, Housey Bingo. Until 19th January there’s also the 1 Million Points Party; to qualify for a share of the million loyalty points, use the code to opt in and play £10 or more on bingo.  From 20th – 26th January there’s a prize draw with Love2Shop Holiday Vouchers to be won: 1 x £1000, 2 x £250, and 10 x £1000.  100 runners up will win £5 cash each. After opting in, players get one draw entry for each £5 of cash play.

Mecca Bingo have a daily free game, Winner Spinner, which is on site until the end of April 2020, with a weekend upgraded version for players who deposit and play £20 Monday – Thursday.  Coming soon – from January 31st – there will be the opportunity to win tickets to Mecca Fest 2020, an exciting live entertainment event (with bingo, of course, and £100,000 of prizes!) hosted by TV personality Joe Swash at Blackpool’s iconic Tower Ballroom on May 30th 2020.  We’ll bring you more details as soon as we have them.

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.   Every week in January (Saturday – Friday) the Road To Rewards promotion runs; after opting in players move one step along the road each time they play £1 on Slingo or bingo in the City Room. Complete 10 steps to gain entry to a £5000 free bingo room from 8pm on the Saturday, 20 steps for a share of £2000 cash, 30 steps for a share of £3000 cash, 50 steps for a share of £5000 cash and 100 steps for a share of £10,000 cash.  Each of the 10 games in the £5000 bingo rooms has a community share, so everyone who participates and completes at least 10 steps will go away with something.  There’s also a £1K community jackpot every day until the end of the month, to be shared by all players who play £5 cash or more on the new Housey Bingo game.

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; their free daily game The Bonus Drop will be on site till at least March 2020, 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.  There’s currently a cryptic announcement on the Paddy Power site of “something exciting” arriving next Thursday lunchtime – whether this is a new bingo game, a slots innovation or something else we don’t yet know, so watch this space!

Betfred Bingo have the Betfred Bingo Win A Car promotion which runs all the way until the end of March 2020.  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.

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.   Heart have also recently revamped all their bingo rooms.  Until 19th January, Heart have a prize draw which you can enter with a spend of just 1p on bingo; there are 800 Box Bonanza games containing up to £5 cash to be won.

Kitty Bingo and other sites on the Daub Alderney software have recently reorganised and updated all their bingo rooms.  They 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 at Kitty, the promo runs until Sunday 19th and to qualify players have to opt in and deposit £20 or more.  They then score 1 point for each £20 of play on Novomatic slots and win a share of one of the four cash pots at the end depending on how many points they scored, with a maximum prize of £50.  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, though, the tournaments are on bingo or minigames, every day until 25th January.  This week (until 19th) the tournaments are on 75 ball bingo in the Grand, Shiny and Glamour Hall bingo rooms and the scoring is based on lines won.  Each day the top 20 win £20 each, and the top 100 for the week go into a prize draw with 10 prizes of £200.  The following week (until 25th) it’s minigames.  The Game of the Week promotion is also back each week in January; opt in and play £20 of the slot of the week to receive a £5 bonus (with a 35x wagering requirement and 30 day expiry).  Until 19th, the slot to play is Monopoly Live.

Tombola retired their daily game Worlds back in November and the new match-3 game Trio started on 13th January.  It’s free to play, with up to £35,000 of cash prizes each week.  Several enhanced prize money promotions have also been announced for January 2020 . Tombola introduced three new bingo games in the last few months – Picture Bingo , Potion and Morph,  and have recently made some changes to Potion following player feedback.

Nektan bingo sites on the new Pragmatic Play bingo platform including Flip Flop Bingo have a slot spins offer that can be claimed once a day until the end of March 2020 by depositing £10 and playing £5 on bingo.  The 20 Starburst spins have a wagering requirement of 35x, a 7 day expiry and 4x max conversion.

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.  Until 12th February they are running 32,000 Free Spins Frenzy; players can collect a share of one of the four spins pots depending on how much they deposit and play on slots during the week (Thursday to Wednesday) – £10 for a share of 600 spins, £25 for a share of 1500 spins, £50 for a share of 2700 spins or £75 for a share of 3200 spins.  The spins, which are valid for 7 days, are on the Wild Cherry slot game at a spin value of 10p, there’s a win cap of 10p x the number of spins given, an 80x wagering requirement and max conversion of £400.

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 for the time being.

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.

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.  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) have little in the way of appealing promotions.   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 some much better promotions including the new Cash Out bingo game , some charity bingo games with 100% of the profits given to the Wood Green animal welfare charity and a £10K sliding jackpot game on 1st February.  In a shock move, Coral Bingo has moved to the GVC platform after years on Virtue Fusion.  Currently there are fewer bingo rooms and promotions than at Foxy but we expect more in the future.

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 has been delayed for ages – we hope to see it at many more sites, with some new and cracking promotions in 2020.

Slot & Casino Promotions

Hyper Casino have something rather different as their Winter Challenge – trigger the free spins in Taco Brothers Save Christmas but win nothing and you can claim £100 cash.  They also have a slot tournament, running until 31st January on a selection of royal themed slot games, with £3000 of bonus prizes  (10 x wagering requirement) between the top 19 biggest multiplier wins. A minimum spin value of £1 and a minimum 100 spins are needed to qualify.

Slots Rush also have something a bit different; deposit and play £10 or more on slots before 26th January to enter the prize draw.  The winner will have all of their deposits in January up to that date refunded (maximum £500).

bgo have a huge promotion running until 7th February, with two top prizes of a pair of tickets to see the Wilder vs Fury heavyweight boxing match in Las Vegas on 22nd February, complete with flights and a 4 night hotel stay at the MGM Grand.  The first part of the promotion is a daily leaderboard, every day until 5th February; players get one point for each £25 of cash play on any game apart from bingo.  The top scorer each day will receive a Tournament Entry Token for the Main Event tournament which is the second part of the promotion and runs from noon on 6th February to midnight on 7th.  In the tournament, players are given 20 tournament spins (not real money) and scoring is based on the biggest virtual payout from the 20 spins.  The top two scorers win the fight tickets, 3rd – 10th win Apple products and the other 20 entries win £19.95 cash (to cover the Pay Per View cost of watching the fight).  Each day’s leaderboard is completely separate to the others meaning that (in theory at least) players can win multiple tournament entries.
