Big Money Bingo Games

Big money bingo games are part of the regular bingo timetable at Virtue Fusion bingo sites. For example, on the second Sunday of the month there’s £10K of guaranteed prizes from 7pm in the Grease bingo room and on the second Friday of the month there’s £10K in guaranteed prizes from 5pm in Rainbow Riches Bingo.

Double Up Escalators run at Virtue Fusion sites on 27th and 28th May.  In a departure from the usual format for escalator jakcpot promotions, two escalators run each day, one starting at noon and guaranteed to drop by 5.45pm and one starting at 6pm and guaranteed to drop by 11.45pm.  The ball count escalates by 2 each hour until the jackpot drops (and goes to 75 or 90 for the xx.45 game if it hasn’t dropped by then.  As always the jackpot is split 50/50 between the full house winner or winners and all of the tickets held in the game in which it drops.

  • Friday 27th May from 12 noon: DOND 75, minimum jackpot £3000
  • Friday 27th May from 6pm: DOND 90, minimum jackpot £5000
  • Saturday 28th May from 12 noon: Network 5 line, minimum jackpot £2500
  • Saturday 28th May from 6pm: Network 90, minimum jackpot £5000

While these amounts may sound a bit underwhelming, it’s important to understand that they are the seed values for the jackpots and unless the jackpot has dropped and been reseeded immediately before the promotion starts (which is very unlikely) they will be higher – possibly much higher.

Entain bingo sites have the regular £20K Sliding Bingo on 28th May at 9pm.  It’s a sliding jackpot game which means that the top prize of £10K is only paid out if someone wins full house in a very unlikely 33 calls (it’s a 90 ball game with no line prizes), but the full house winner IS guaranteed to win at least £6000.  There’s also a £10,000 community pot to be split between all of the tickets bought for the game, but no line prizes. Tickets are on sale now for 50p each.

During May, all Entain sites are running the £3M Network Guarantee.  This consists of a guaranteed £100,000 in prizes per day across 7 bingo rooms – 90 ball, penny bingo, speed, 80 ball, 75 ball and both types of Deal Or No Deal Bingo.  Ticket prices are 1p – 50p.

bingo.com and Unibet have Super Saturday, a weekly 5 line game with £3000 of prizes.  Tickets are £1.50 for a strip of 3.

The big money games in bingo90 at Tombola continue into May and June.   £10K Links runs on Monday 9th, 16th and 23rd May; the guaranteed £10K is the full house prize in the 9pm and 9.30pm link games.  The Right Royal Week £30K Link is on May 30th and the Right Royal Week £10K Link every evening from May 31st to June 5th; the guaranteed prize is in the 9pm game.  There’s also some big 75 ball action in May; £1K Tuesdays runs on 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th May in bingo75 Lines, with a £1K guaranteed 5 line prize in every game from 8.30pm till 9.30pm.

At Mecca Bingo the Mecca Fortune game plays in Main Event and several of their other bingo rooms at 19:30 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays with a ticket price of 25p.  There’s guaranteed prize money of £5000 for FH, £2000 for 2L, £1000 for 1L and a £2000 1TG share. A number of other linked games play between 7pm and 11pm with £2000 guaranteed prize money and there’s also a £20,000 escalator jackpot (a very slow one – the ball count goes up by one per week).  The £10K game can also be played from Mecca clubs via electronic Max boards and the games are also networked with Kitty Bingo and Lucky Pants Bingo.

Most Pragmatic Play bingo sites have 5K XTG Saturdays, every Saturday in May.  These 90 ball games have a ticket price of 30p and the prize breakdown is £500 for one line, £1000 for 2 lines, £2000 for full house.  1TG share £1000 abd 2TG share £500.

Jumpman bingo and slot sites have the exclusive Friday Fun which plays at 8pm every Friday.  Tickets are a rather steep £1 but the £2500 of prizes go all the way down to 5TG.

Prize Draw Promotions

Prize draws are pretty much a permanent feature at Gamesys sites.

Double Bubble Bingo has Reel Reveal which runs every day until 19th May.  There’s 10 Box Bonanzas worth up to £50 to be won in each daily draw plus 50 runner up prizes of Box Bonanzas worth up to £15.  To enter a daily draw, spin the reel on the promo page to reveal the slot of the day then play £10 on it.  The Pop Power Wheel is on site until 22nd May.  Spin the wheel to find out what Box Bonanzas there are to be won that day then play £10 on any game to enter the day’s draw. Enter 3 or more of the daily draws to collect 5 free spins on Double Bubble Triple Jackpot to be awarded on 24th May.

At Jackpotjoy there’s 50 Box Bonanzas worth up to £20 to be won each day in the Instant Fun promotion until 19th May.  To enter a daily draw, opt in and play £10 on any Instant Win games.  For each draw you enter you’ll also get one entry into a final prize draw with 100 Box Bonanza games worth up to £50 to be won.

So….what IS a Box Bonanza?  It’s a pick-me game where the player is shown three boxes to choose from and most, but not all boxes contain a mystery cash prize.

Jumpman have a monthly prize draw and for May, it’s Massive May Giveaway. This month there are several gadget prizes including an iPad Pro to be won across all Jumpman bingo and slot sites.  Players get one entry for each £10 played on the Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways slot during the month.  There’s also the monthly Scratch For Cash which has one prize of £1000 Cash (again this is across the whole network).  Players get one entry for each £10 cash played in the Scratch Cards tab.

Unibet and bingo.com have the Bingo Musical Raffle prize draw promotion every day until 23rd May.  Players collect raffle tickets by completing up to 3 daily bingo missions and/or spending £25 on bingo.  That’s for the daily raffle which has 250 prizes ranging from £1 bingo voucher to £100 cash.  There’s also a weekly raffle which can be entered by playing £50 on bingo in a day, with an extra raffle ticket for playing £50 in a day 3 times in a week.  It has 50 prizes ranging from a £10 bingo voucher to £500 cash.  The final raffle is for high rollers and you collect a ticket by playing £350 on bingo in a week and/or playing £1050 on bingo over the whole promotion.  It has 25 prizes ranging from a £100 bingo voucher to £10,000 cash.

Betfred Bingo runs regular Cash Drop promotions; these are actually prize draws that run for a week and you enter by playing £10 on side games in the bingo lobby.  This week (until 22nd May) there are 12 prizes worth £1500 altogether and the code to opt in is RAIN.

At tombola arcade there’s £100K in May.  It’s part prize draw, part bonus game and each part has to be opted into separately.  The bonus game part of the promotion takes place on Mondays until 23rd May with two games to be unlocked each time, one in the morning and one in the evening.  To unlock a game, play £1 on any game on arcade between 8am and 10am and/or between 8pm and 10pm.  The morning game has to be played by 11am and the evening game by 11pm.  Both are match three games with more than 1500 prizes to be won on each day of the promotion.  The prize draw part of the promotion takes place on Fridays until 27th May and this time, when you stake £1 between 8pm and 10pm you get an entry to a prize draw with a top prize of £5000 and 1000 runner up prizes of £5 each.

At Mecca Bingo one of their big prize draw promotions is running in conjunction with Britain’s Got TalentThe Top Talent Prize Draw takes place live on Mecca TV every Friday evening until 3rd June 2022 with 40 prizes to be won each week.  There’s tickets to the BGT Finals or Semifinals, a Showbiz Style makeover, shoppig vouchers, concert tickets, gadgets, bonuses and more.  Players can collect draw entries by playing the premium version of Mecca’s daily bonus game or by winning line or full house prizes in the Britain’s Got Talent bingo room.  As usual with this type of promotion at Mecca, entries are cumulative meaning that any entries you earn for the first draw will be carried forward to future draws and added to any entries you collect in the draw week.  At midnight on the Thursday, entries are frozen and 3000 are randomly chosen to go into the tomola for the live draw the next day.

The Mecca TV show also includes opportunities for audience members to win prizes live on air.

Daily Bonus Games

At Tombola the new free daily game, Free Vibes, started on 3rd January 2022.  Like its predecessors it is playable twice a day, once on Tombola Bingo and once on Tombola Arcade, by all Tombola players who have opted in to SMS messaging (needed to receive a weekly activation code).

At Heart Bingo, there’s the Heart Bonanza free daily game (the sort where you have to collect sets of symbols over a week to win free bingo tickets, free spins or cash).  To qualify you need to have made at least 2 deposits, at least once of which must be for £10 or more and in the last 30 days.  Every day in May, there’s also Everyone’s A Winner.  To spin this guaranteed win wheel which awards free spins, free bingo tickets or cash, you must opt in and play £5 on bingo.

At Paddy Power Bingo, there’s the guaranteed win game, Paddy’s Cash Reel. Spend £2 or more on bingo tickets to gain access the same day (you’ll find it in the Games area of the bingo lobby). You’re guaranteed to win at least 10p and the top prize is £100.  You can also head over to Paddy Power Games and play the daily free game Paddy’s Wonder Wheel.

At Gamesys sites there’s a choice of several different free daily games.  You play every day for a week and collect sets of symbols to win cash or free spins (you won’t win every week though).  An extra bonus game is available on the last day of the month; it’s a pick-me with one pick for each day you played a daily game and the prizes are free spins.

William Hill Bingo is an interesting case. They don’t have a bingo welcome offer, and their daily free game which is called Bonus Drop doesn’t have any bingo related prizes – only cash, slot spins or slot bonus.

Kitty Bingo and Lucky Pants Bingo both have recently updated free daily games – Spin the Wheel at Kitty and Scratch & Win at Lucky Pants.  They are instant win games unlike the previous daily games they had where you had to collect sets of symbols over days or weeks.  The prizes are loyalty points (which can be redeeemed for Slingo bonus), slot spins or slot bonus and all come with wagering requirements and a max convertible.  You get one free play per day and can collect up to two more based on your day’s play.

Gala Bingo have a new free to play daily game, Daily Free Spin.  Prizes are free spins or cash but a win is not guaranteed.

At Buzz Bingo there’s the Spin Me Right Round Spinner, which is free to play every day until 31st May. The prizes are bingo bonus or slot spins but only 20% of spins result in a win.  There’s also a Super version of the spinner which you can unlock for the following day by depositing and playing £10 on bingo or slots; it’s got bigger prizes, you’re guaranteed to win something and one player per day will win £100 cash. Until 22nd May they also have the Triple Gold Spinner which can be played after staking £30 cash on Wheel of Fortune Triple Gold: Gold Spin in a day and is guaranteed to award up to 50 free spins; only 3.5% of plays, however, result in a win of more than 10 spins.  Spins have a 48 hour expiry.  This promotion has been running for quite a while but Buzz have been keeping it fresh by changing the slot game every 2 weeks, so expect to see a new game feature on the spinner from 23rd May onwards.

Foxy Bingo has Foxy’s Freebies, every day until further notice.  It’s a free to play pinball style game and you can win cash or free spins.  Spin To Win is new at Foxy and has no end date; to get a spin of this wheel (which awards cash or free spins) you need to deposit and spend £5 on any game the same day.

At Mecca Bingo the Judges Jackpot: The Auditions game is on site until 5th June.  This free pick-me game is available from noon and awards free bingo, cash, spins or bonuses on 90% of plays.  Everyone who plays the game at least once before 19th May will be entered in a draw to win a pair of tickets to the 2022 ITV Britain’s Got Talent live shows.  To play the premium version Judges Jackpot: The Finals, which is available from 2pm with a guaranteed win and bigger prizes, you need to have deposited and spent £10 the day before.  Every play of this game awards an entry to the Top Talent Prize Draw.

Sun Bingo have Spin-Go, a daily free game that was supposed to end on 30th April but has now been extended indefinitely.  Prizes include cash, free spins, bonuses and free bingo and in a departure from previous form, all the winnings are in cash.

New Games

Tombola’s spring themed game Bloom, based on the same game engine and with similar interactive features to the earlier seasonal game Winter Spotlight, has now finished its time limited run.  We expect to see a summer themed version on the game (one of their best ever for sheer entertainment value) in a month or two’s time.

At Betfred Bingo there’s Giddy Up Bingo, a single ticket multi stake 50 ball bingo game themed on a horse race.

Ladbrokes Bingo has the exclusive game show Well Well Well Live  and we believe Entain also have a new bingo game launching soon, as well as an improved verson of the mobile bingo lobby.

Recently added at Paddy Power Bingo and now live at many other sites are two new Slingo games, Slingo Super Spin and Slingo Racing (the latter, complete with silly horse names like Horsy McHorseface, just in time for the Cheltenham Festival).  Slingo Inca Trail is also freshly released.

Everyone loves Bonanza, and now there’s Bonanza Megapays, which adds a multi pot progressive jackpot to what is already a thrilling game. It’s available (along with Millionaire Megapays) at Relax Gaming sites such as bingo.com and several other sites including Casumo.

At Sun Bingo until 19th May there’s a brace of £2000 cash sharepots. Deposit £10 and play £25 cash on eligible games to qualify for pot 1, then a further £25 to qualify for pot 2. The games are Cash N Riches Megaways, Eye of Horus Megaways and DOND Megaways The Golden Box.


Slots Tourneys are a recent and very popular innovation at Gala Bingo; they are free slots tournaments which run for 24 hours, 7pm until 7pm the next day.  Opt in to collect 20 tournament spins on the featured slot and see how many points you score on the leaderboard; prizes are free spins or cash.  And now, another Entain site, Foxy Bingo, is trying out some tournaments too.  Look for the Showdown tab on site to see what’s on.

PlayOJO is a great place for slot tournaments.  They are called Reel Spinoffs; some (Freerolls) are free to enter and others you pay to enter (usually £1 each time).  You’ll be given a set of tournament spins (not real money) on a specific slot and the aim is to score as much as possible.

Unibet and bingo.com have a weekly Lucky Spin tournament (Friday – Thursday) with £10,000 of cash prizes.  Scoring is based on the biggest win relative to stake in just one spin; there’s around 20 games to choose from each week and the minimum spin value to qualify is just 20p.

Dragonfish network bingo sites have a bingo tournament every weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) until further notice.  To participate, players need to head for the Win Finals Tickets room at 7pm. Tickets to these games are 5p each and the prizes are: full house – 50 finals tickets + 30 spins, 2L –  25 finals tickets + 20 spins, 1L –  15 tickets & 10 spins, 1TG –  10 finals tickets, 2TG –  5 finals tickets.  The final starts at 9pm and consists of two games each with a £125 prize pool.

The £250 Fluffy Friday Tournament continues to run every Friday at Jumpman sites from 7pm-10pm with points awarded for the biggest wins, but be aware that the latest game in the series, Fluffy Megaways, isn’t included.

The Pragmatic Drops & Wins promotion is a widely networked and long running slot promotion which started back in the spring of 2020, with more than £500K to be won in each 4 week promotional period.  It’s already been extended many times and has now been extended yet again, to run until 1st June 2022 at most sites with Pragmatic Play slots including Buzz Bingo.   The Drops part of the promotion consists of 500 randomly triggered cash or free spins prizes per day (of up to 1000x your bet) and the Wins part is a weekly leaderboard with scoring based on the largest single spin win relative to stake and 1500 cash or free spins prizes each week (with a top prize of 10,000x your bet).  To participate, players opt in within any of the qualifying games:

The really popular titles like Wolf Gold and Big Bass Bonanza tend to be included every time.  At most sites the games that are included are clearly marked “Drops & Wins” in the lobby so there’s no need to memorise the list!

Free Bingo Promotions

At Gala Bingo there’s 40 free bingo games every day in the Prosecco Room (interspersed with pay games). The prizes are £20 for full house, £15 for 2L, £5 for 1L and £15 community share, for a total of £2000 in daily prize money.  There’s extra free bingo by invitation, for players who are over 50.

Virtue Fusion sites have lots of free bingo.  For example:

At Paddy Power Bingo there’s 6 hours of free bingo in the Platinum Room, every single day from noon until 6pm.  There’s £10 of cash prizes in each 90 ball game; in order to see or enter the room you’ll need to visit the promotions page to find the code that needs to be entered in the bingo lobby.

At Buzz Bingo the free bingo is in the recently introduced 80 ball Go Go Bingo! Room. It runs from 10am until 1pm and 3pm until 6pm every day.  The prizes are small (£3 cash prize pool per game) and the games are all Superbooks (pay to upgrade tickets for a bigger prize) so be careful not to select Superbooks by mistake when claiming tickets.

At Mecca Bingo the Lucky For Some room gives out more than £1000 in free games every day.  They alternate with pay games from 8pm until 10pm.

Sun Bingo run a massive 60 free bingo games every day, in the Cabaret Room, all with the Roll On feature.  Prizes vary and the promotion will run until further notice.

Other Cool Stuff

Duo Bingo is a new feature at Sun Bingo, live from noon until 5pm every day on 2 games an hour in the Candy, Penny Press, Cabaret, Showboat and Romance rooms, and on 12 games between 5pm and 6pm.  Buy a ticket to be randomly paired up with another player; if they win, you win a prize too!  The feature was trialled during March and proved popular so it’s now staying until at least the end of June.

Lucky Day bingo is a fun little extra in the Bargain Lounge and Session Bingo rooms at Betfred which has been extended for the whole of May.  Opt in with code LUCK to participate and any 1 line, 2 line or full house win on the number that corresponds with the date (e.g. win on number 25 on 25th May) will be doubled.
