The United Bingo sites are a network of Dragonfish bingo sites with their own bingo rooms and some great player promotions.

Who are Tarco / Netboost?

Tarco is a bingo operator with its own network, using the Dragonfish bingo software – in many ways similar to Ignite (they even have a network VIP club with the same name as the Ignite one).

Netboost is the associated marketing company – it has been around since 2006 and is based in Israel.

Points of confusion?

  • Not all of the bingo sites on the Tarco network are actually operated by Tarco.  There are a few sites on the network – such as Cupcake Bingo –  that are owned by other operators and are essentially Tarco skins.
  • Although the Tarco network is standalone, it does have some bingo rooms that are linked with the main Dragonfish network (and other networks such as Joy of Bingo) – obviously so in the case of the 75 and 90 ball big link rooms, less obviously so in the case of Racing Sweets (aka Candylicious on the main network). Tarco Linked Rooms
  • Like Ignite, Tarco also operate some bingo sites – including Spectra Bingo and Two Fat Ladies – that are not on their own network but are on the main Dragonfish network, plus some Dragonfish slot sites. You may also come across the name United Commissions (formerly known as United Bingo) which is the name of a programme set up to promote the Tarco operated casino and bingo sites (regardless of which network they are on).
  • As if all this wasn’t confusing enough, Tarco is owned by Stride Gaming – the operator of Kitty Bingo – but the licence for the Tarco network bingo sites is held by 888 UK Limited.

Welcome Offers With Extras

It’s unusual to find a plain old bingo bonus offer at a Tarco bingo site.  In the past, these bingo sites have tried out a series of hugely complex welcome offers with bingo bonus, slot bonus, bonus spins, free bingo tickets and/or the opportunity to win more via a bonus game included – everything but the kitchen sink! They have also experimented with different offers on different sizes of deposit at the same site.  Currently, most have a combination of bingo bonus and bonus spins plus a bonus game to be played later.

Sliding Jackpots

  • The Tarco network has quite a few regular sliding jackpot bingo games, some every day and some once a month, and also runs sliding jackpots as time limited promotions.
  • In a sliding jackpot game, the prize varies depending on how many ball calls it takes for bingo to be won and is not affected by ticket sales.  For example, in the Santa’s Stash sliding jackpot games – a 75 ball game played nightly across the network during December 2017 – the £2500 headline prize was for bingo in 44 or fewer calls, £2000 for 45-47 calls, £1200 for 48-49 calls, £600 for 50-54 calls , £300 for 55-59 calls and if 60 calls or more were needed for bingo, the prize would be just £200.  The chance of winning any amount greater than £300 with a single card to one of these games is worse than 1 in 10,000 and it falls off very steeply with lower numbers of calls.
  • Many players are not aware of the probabilities when deciding whether to participate in a sliding jackpot game and if a lot of players buy tickets with an eye on the headline prize the Return To Player can end up being very poor as compared to a bingo game where the prize money is determined by the ticket sales.
  • It is another story when an operator gives away free tickets to a sliding jackpot game as part of a player promotion or reward scheme – as Tarco often do.  In that case, the sliding jackpot adds another dimension of excitement to the bingo game as players flock to see if someone will win one of the big prizes – and such games help to keep it fun and interesting at the network as a whole.

Promotions

As you’d expect from an operator that has its own marketing company, Tarco look after their players well.  For example, they often run slot leaderboard promotions for their players, usually with a reward of bonus spins for reaching a certain level of participation.  This means that everyone can benefit, not just high rollers.
