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

One of Virtue Fusion’s most popular promotions, the £1 Million Slots Prize Draw, is back and is running until 9th April with draws twice a week on Mondays and Fridays.  Get one entry to the next draw for each £10 of play on Cleopatra’s Chest, Pirates’ Plunder, George and the Dragon, Fireworkz Blitz, Big Top Tombola, Rainbow Riches Slot, Mafia Millions, Age of the Gods: Lord of Lightning, Snow Queen’s Magic, Bouncy Balls and Tiki Paradise Masks of Mayhem.  One slot awards double tickets and until 2nd April it’s Age of the Gods: Lord of Lightning (after that it swaps over to Tiki Paradise Masks of Mayhem ).

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 5th April; it’s themed on the Voice UK and is called Pick A Chair.  A win is not guaranteed unless you have deposited £10 or more in the last 30 days.  The possible prizes for non depositing players are 50p bingo bonus or  entry to a free bingo session; the guaranteed win version also has larger amounts of bonus, free spins, club discounts and a few cash prizes.  Throughout March, players can also collect free tickets to the Bingo Millions Mega Draw (top prize £10 million) on 12th April, at the rate of one ticket for each £10 of play on any Bingo Millions game.

Sun Bingo have brought their ever popular Everyone’s A Winner daily promotion back, running until 5th April.  Players get one entry to the following day’s draw for each £5 of cash play anywhere on site, and can enter each draw as many times as they like but only win one prize. The prizes in each draw are: 1 x £1000 cash, 100 x £5 bingo bonus, 500 x £2 bingo bonus and 50p bingo bonus for all other entrants.  The bonus has a 2x wagering requirement and 3 day expiry.

Mecca Bingo have a daily free game, Winner Spinner, which is on site until the end of April 2020, with a upgraded version for players who deposited and played £10 the day before.

Gala Bingo have just updated with a fresh new look and several promotions to go with their new TV ad.  Makeover Madness runs until 10th April.  The game plays every Friday at 9.30pm with a FH prize of a makeover worth £5K (Bathroom week 1, Kitchen week 2, Garden week 3 and Wardrobe week 4). 2L wins £250 and 1L wins £100. Tickets are £1 each, or win them in the qualifiers which play every hour, on the hour from 8am till 9pm;these games have a ticket price of 20p and there’s prizes of £20 for FH, £10 for 2L and £5 for 1L plus a free ticket in each case to the next Makeover Madness game.  To ensure that free tickets play, you’ll need to be in the bingo room at the time of the game or pre-buy at least one paid ticket.  Gala are also advertising a new bingo room, TV Specials, but this is actually a consolidation of existing bingo rooms; it runs a mixture of regular 90 ball, Emmerdale, The Chase and In For A Penny bingo games.

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 5th April, 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 for the following day, spend £10 on bingo tickets.

Betfred Bingo have just finished the Betfred Bingo Win A Car promotion and we’re waiting to hear how mnay cars they gave away (quite a few, we think).

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.  For the whole of April at Heart, there is a daily prize draw with 10 prizes each time (each day a different item).  To enter, open the gift box of the day on the promo page.

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.

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, there’s a bingo tournament every weekend (Saturday and Sunday) until the end of April.  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.   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.  As well as a free £5 bonus for depositing tombola players , throughout February, March and April there’s a £10,000 90 ball game every night at 9pm.  Recently released are two new bingo games, the steampunk themed  The Machine and the 50 ball game Paper.  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.

Nektan bingo sites on the new Pragmatic Play bingo platform including Mighty Jackpots and Flip Flop Bingo have the Daily Heavy Weight Jackpot game plays at 9pm with a FH prize of £500 and tickets priced at 25p and there’s also the EGGventure £500 Easter jackpot game on 12th April.

Nektan sites are also running a HUGE £1.5 million Pragmatic Play networked promotion called Daily Drops & Wins, which will run on a weekly cycle (Thursday – Wednesday) until 1st July 2020.  To participate, play any of the featured slots at 50p a spin or more (a “qualifying spins”).  Every day, 50 cash prizes worth £4640 in total will randomly drop after a qualifying spin. Every week, there’s a tournament with scoring based on the biggest single spin win relative to stake (if there’s a tie, the earlier score takes precedence), and 150 prizes worth £30,000 in all will be awarded.  The featured games will change every 4 weeks; until 8th April the games to play are Wolf Gold, Mustang Gold, Sweet Bonanza, John Hunter Scarab Queen, Joker Jewels, Buffalo King, Dog House, Release the Kraken, Pirate Gold, Chilli Heat, Master Joker, Mysterious, Golden Beauty and Aztec Bonanza and they may also add some new games as they come out.

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 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.

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 a weekly puzzle competition via social media (but alas, they no longer have any free bingo).    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.  The big news at Jumpman is that they are now running on Pragmatic Play, the same bingo platform – and the same bingo rooms – as the Nektan sites.  This is a MASSIVE improvement in terms of both choice of games and prize value.

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 .  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.  The £15K sliding jackpot game on 11th April is 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 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 just 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 slot tournament, running until 31st March on a selection of slot games themed on gold and/or Irish luck, 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.

bgo normally have an exclusive promotion running but nothing has been announced for April yet.
