Pragmatic Play Bingo Sites

Pragmatic Play is an exciting new bingo platform with 75,90, 80 and 30 ball bingo rooms plus the Bingo Blast speed bingo game.  The Pragmatic Play bingo product is available at PlayOJO. Glossy Bingo and other Broadway Gaming sites, and LeoVegas.  It’s also available at many Nektan sites and at all Jumpman bingo sites and Jumpman slot sites, but without the chat.

These Nektan slot sites also have Pragmatic Play bingo, but without a bingo welcome offer:

Nektan Bingo Sites

Pragmatic Play Bingo

The bingo at Nektan sites is a new product powered by Pragmatic Play and supplied as a plugin alongside their slot games (many of which appear as mini games inside the bingo lobby).  A few Nektan white label operators have decided not to offer bingo but many now have it – and the ones that do, also have a bingo welcome offer that can be claimed instead of the usual Nektan welcome offer.

Who Are Nektan?

Nektan have been a force in online gaming for more than 5 years.  The first Nektan casinos to launch – Chomp Casino for example – were designed for mobile phones and only had their own proprietary slot games, but they soon evolved into a casino platform suitable for play on all devices and featuring slot games from a wide range of other providers as well as their own.  By spring 2018 there were more than 100 Nektan white label casinos for UK players to choose from. The Nektan approach is to offer a curated selection of the best and most popular games from each provider rather than the entire catalogue so if you try a game you haven’t tried before at a Nektan site, it’s unlikely to be a dud.

Nektan have network welcome offers and promotions but many Nektan operators replace them with home grown ones.

Who are Pragmatic Play?

Pragmatic Play in its current form is a relative newcomer to iGaming.  The company was formed in 2015 (it may or may not have a connection with Topgame Technology, some of whose assets it acquired) and was granted a UK licence in April 2017; the same year they won Software Rising Star at the 2017 EGR B2B awards, plus three awards at the Malta iGaming Excellence awards.  Well known Pragmatic Play slots include Leprechaun Song, Wolf Gold and Chilli Heat.  Pragmatic Play run slot tournaments from time to time with all the admin handled at their end rather than via the casino’s promotions page, making it super easy for players to participate.

The Pragmatic Play Bingo Product

The Pragmatic Play bingo product was first demoed at the giant iGaming trade show ICE London back in February 2018 but it wasn’t until a year later that it went live – and that was a soft launch with just one operator. The delay appears to have been partly due to the length of time it currently takes to get a UKGC licence (or in Pragmatic Play’s case, to extend their licence to cover remote bingo in addition to their other products) and partly due to a desire to ensure that the product was 100% ready and properly tested before going live.  In summer 2019 it was finally rolled out across the Nektan network.  Because the networking is handled by Pragmatic Play and not by Nektan, there was always the possibility for non Nektan sites to contribute to the liquidity and from the start, the product was also live at The Palaces (their players can be idenitfied by the PL suffix on ther usernames).

The bingo lobby works on all devices and includes rooms with 90 ball, 75 ball, and 80 ball bingo.  There’s also a speed bingo game called Bingo Blast and several jackpot games, and 30 ball bingo made an appearance in early 2021.  Each room has chat (at times this is automated and it is not available at all sites) and a selection of Pragmatic Play and other mini games. Unlike bingo platforms such as Dragonfish, Pragmatic Play bingo has fully featured pre-buy for every game apart from Bingo Blast and not just for 7 days ahead of time either – you can purchase tickets for up to a month in advance.

As bingo products go, it’s pretty good, but at the start it didn’t have as much liquidity as some other platforms.  The prizes were always worthwhile, though, and they ran a series of fun promotions early on including a weekly £1000 free bingo game in Autumn 2019 and the 12 Days of Christmas jackpot games.  Regular jackpot games are still a feature.

The Growing Pragmatic Play Network

In spring 2020 the liquidity took a giant step forward when over 100 Jumpman Gaming sites replaced their proprietary bingo product with the Pragmatic Play rooms.  Jumpman don’t give out bingo bonuses (all of their offers and promotions are slots focused) but plenty of Jumpman players want to play bingo and just like players from The Palaces they have a special suffix on their usernames (in this case JG).  Jumpman even have an exclusive bingo session on Friday evenings. What they don’t have, though, is any chat in the bingo rooms – it’s been disabled. So not the place if you like to talk!

Later additions to the Pragmatic Play bingo network have been even more exciting.  The one that stands out most is the No Wagering site PlayOJO, where player promotions are second to none.  The Pragmatic Play bingo implementation there includes a number of exclusive bingo rooms;  Masked Singer Bingo is one of them.

The Pragmatic bingo product has also replaced the Microgaming bingo product at Broadway Gaming sites such as Rosy Bingo, and the Bede bingo product at Leo Vegas and sister sites.  In both these instances there’s some degree of customisation and an exclusive bingo room.

Are they done yet in their quest for world domination? Apparently not!  Even more sites are rumoured to be getting Pragmatic Play bingo later in 2021 or in 2022, sending the liquidity even higher.  Maybe Dragonfish should start worrying….
