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 August is bargain bingo in the network 90 ball room from 12 noon every day. Ticket prices range from 1p to 10p and there’s over £1 million in guaranteed prizes to be won during the month – £40K every day Monday – Thursday and £50K every day Friday – Sunday.
The biggest news from Virtue Fusion isn’t a promotion, however – it’s the recent launch of the Fluffy Favourites bingo room which gives players the opportunity to win big prizes in the bonus features based on the Fluffy slot games. The new room also has an escalator jackpot which plays on the first Saturday of every month.
Many Virtue Fusion bingo sites have their own exclusive promotions and here are some of the best:
Buzz Bingo have yet another new version of their free daily game on site until 1st September. Once a day on login, players can spin the Buzz Bingo Circus Spinner. Prizes are slot spins, bingo bonus, entry to a free bingo session or free bingo at a Buzz club and there are 25 cash prizes of £5 – £100 to be won every day. To be guaranteed a prize and to have any chance of winning one of the cash prizes, players must have deposited a total of £10 or more since joining Buzz: if you haven’t, you can still play but you get different odds (all of which are detailed on site) and there’s a 50% chance of getting nothing (still not bad for a free game though!) Buzz also have a couple of regular slot promotions that are well worth checking out, and a recently launched 90 ball game Bingo Millions, which plays twice a week (10pm on Wednesdays and Saturdays) with a 50p ticket price and awards fixed prizes for completing lines in a set number of calls – including an eye popping £1.5 million for anyone who completes Full House in 30 or fewer calls. There’s also an instant win version of Bingo Millions which plays every 5 minutes with a 20p ticket price and slightly smaller prizes (the jackpot is fixed at a mere million pounds). The latest Bingo Millions game to launch is an 80 ball version with prizes for completing 1,2,3 columns and house in various numbers of calls; it plays twice a week at 10pm on Thursdays and Sundays with the same progressive jackpot and 50p ticket price as the 90 ball game. During August, players who spend £2 cash on a strip of 5 tickets for a Bingo Millions 80 game and don’t win anything can claim a free strip of tickets for the next game.
Sun Bingo have extended their Everyone’s a Winner promotion to run until 31st August with a qualifying spend of £5 to enter a daily draw. Each draw has £2000 of cash prizes (£5 – £500) plus 500 prizes of £2 bingo bonus to be won; players can enter each draw as many times as they like but can only win one prize in each draw. There’s also a £2000 bingo bonus pot each day to be split evenly between players who entered the draw but didn’t win anything. All bingo bonus prizes have a 2 x wagering requirement and 3 day expiry.
Mecca Bingo have a number of bingo promotions as part of their £25 Million Summer Sizzler. For example, there’s a £2000 free bingo room from 7pm – 9pm every Sunday evening until 1st September; to gain entry, deposit and play £35 on Emoji Bingo or Burst Bingo. Mecca’s many slot promotions include a regular Game of the Week bonus back. Mecca also have a free daily spin the wheel game; a deposit of £5+ unlocks the game for 7 days, or deposit and spend £10 to unlock the Golden Winner Spinner (which has bigger and better prizes) for the following day. There’s also some extra BOB (equal chance) bingo games with higher than usual ticket prices and prizes: BOB £1 plays on Monday evenings 6pm – 10pm and BOB £2.50 plays on Friday evenings 8pm – 10pm, both until the end of August.
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. The Soap Spectacular promotion runs on a weekly cycle until 30th August; 24 free bingo games play every Friday evening grouped into 4 sessions with £10,000 of prizes each week. Players get one free ticket for each £5 of cash play in the Coronation Street or Emmerdale bingo rooms but (as usual with this type of promotion) they must be in the bingo room when the free games run for their tickets to play. Everyone who qualifies will also go into a prize draw to win a VIP set tour. The £40,000 Slots Spectacular also runs on a weekly cycle until 1st September; the games involved are Fluffy, Clover Rollover and Bouncy Balls and players qualify for one prize (credited the following Monday) each time they deposit and play £25 on these slot. Prize 1 is 10 free spins for Age of the Gods (7 day expiry), prize 2 is a share of £2K cash, prize 3 a share of £3K cash and prize 4 a share of £5K cash
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. Various slot promotions including prizes draws and stake and gets are running during August.
Paddy Power Bingo have some great regular promotions including weekly bingo bonus offers based on loyalty level. Also, every Tuesday and Wednesday in August players who spend £5 in the Speed Trap room between 4pm and 8pm without winning anything will share a £250 bingo bonus pot (2 x wagering and 72 hour expiry). Opt in with code 2NDCHANCE.
Betfred Bingo have a regular bonus back promotion; to qualify play £5 or more on bingo during the week. The bonus back is 5% of stakes and is paid as a bingo bonus up to £25 with a single playthrough requirement and 6 day expiry.
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. Bingo is also back on the menu at Virgin Games so we expect some good promotions to be run there too.
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. At the moment Kitty have a series of promotions under the umbrella of Summer Of Slots, running until 22nd August.
Unibet and Bingo.com which are both 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 (sometimes 20 but often just 1 – the lucky spin format). As well as a daily £5000 Lucky Spin tournament on a different slot each day, bingo tournaments run for days at a time.
Tombola’s daily game Worlds 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 the fourth World in the series of six – it plays the same but with a different setting (the world of the Dwarves). Tombola also have a new bingo game – Picture Bingo. Many promotions are planned for August under the banner tombolafest, including the Big Friday Link Up comprising 5 x £5000 full house games between 8pm and 10pm every Friday in August.
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). Until 26th August, a prize draw takes place every Monday at 888Ladies with a £1000 gift card to be won by one lucky player. Collect one ticket each day you play £20 cash or more on bingo or slots.
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, but only the twice weekly 90 ball version, not the instant win or either of the 80 ball versions.
Cozy bingo sites (the few that are left) run network slot promotions, typically bonus back or leaderboards, with some different, much better promotions (and an enhanced version of the bingo software) at Foxy Bingo including charity bingo games in aid of an animal charity, escalator jackpots and slot promotions. Microgaming network promotions (when they have any – they haven’t for a while now) also tend to be slot promotions.
Slot & Casino Promotions
Hyper Casino have a big tournament for July and August on a selection of slots by Big Time Gaming and Just For The Win, with a total prize pool of £25K plus 5000 spins.
Powerspins have Jackpot Jetsetter, a stunningly simple and innovative promotion with a prize of a 6 night holiday in Dubai for two people. The holiday will go to the first Powerspins player to win a jackpot of more than £200,000 (Jackpot King, perhaps) and the promotion will run until someone wins.
Bgo have the American Dream series of promotions, each with a different 5 night US trip for 2 people to be won. At the moment (until 18th August) the Vegas Adventure leaderboard promotion is on site. After opting in, players get one point for each £25 of cash play on any game apart from bingo. There are 100 prizes including Apple products, cash and free spins as well as the holiday. Everyone who collects at least one point also gets to play in the American Dream Slot Tournament on 19th – 20th August. The tournament has a top prize of a £1000 TV and sound system bundle; 2nd place wins a TV, 3rd a £250 Amazon voucher and 4th – 50th win free spins.
At PlayOJO and a number of other sites on the same SkillOnNet platform there’s a series of 4 slot tournaments each with a top prize of a brand new Mini Cooper car. Players can collect one free tournament ticket a day by playing 100 cash spins on the game of the week and tickets can also be bought for 1 euro each. Each ticket can be redeemed for 20 tournament spins and it is the (not real money) winnings from these that determine position on the leaderboard. The slots of the week are as follows:
- 5th – 11th August: Wild Robo Factory by Yggdrasil
- 12th – 18th August: The Sword & the Grail by Play N Go
- 19th – 25th August: Midas Golden Touch by Thunderkick
