Bgo is a Playtech bingo site with a unique welcome offer and no wagering requirements ever.  It is a top choice for slots players as well as for bingo players, featuring regular slot tournaments (one of which has a massive £10,000 cash to be won every week) as well as a huge range of slot games from different providers.

Instead of a bonus, bingo players collect loyalty points that can be redeemed for bingo tickets and mini game credits and slots players collect free spins on a selection of Net Ent slots with winnings paid in cash (including some no deposit free spins).  If you prefer the slots offer you can read about it here.

BGO Bingo was originally powered by its own unique software, but back in 2015 the site migrated to the Virtue Fusion / Playtech bingo platform enabling them to offer much bigger prizes thanks to shared liquidity with the Virtue Fusion network.  In summer 2017 a further site upgrade brought the new Playtech HTML5 bingo lobby and introduced seamless play across all devices.

BGO exclusive bingo rooms include Fairy Delight and Golden Galaxy, with card prices set at 2p – 5p and exclusive promotions every month, and there’s also a daily free bingo game with £100 cash to be won (open to anyone who has played £10 or more earlier in the day). Further daily free bingo games are available to players on higher levels of the VIP scheme.

The selection of slots at bgo is beyond impressive – where else are you going to find the IGT Megajackpots series, Net Ent’s Mega Fortune and Playtech jackpot slots including Gladiator and Age of the Gods all under one roof? (And that’s just the progressive jackpots!)  There are literally hundreds of other slot games to choose from.  The bgo mobile app, which is available for both Apple and Android devices, makes for super easy play of both bingo and slots on the go.

One of the most fun things about bgo was the site’s long standing association with Verne Troyer aka the Boss which was only ended by his untimely death in April 2018. The Boss was (in our opinion anyway) a glowing example of how a bingo site celebrity endorsement ought to be done – he was all over the site, sporting a variety of amusing facial expressions and outfits and putting his unique stamp on everything, and he will be sorely missed.

The new welcome offer arrangements that came in during October 2017 are truly radical and unlike some other sites that have no wagering requirements as such, but impose other restrictions such as caps on winnings, there’s no hidden catch at bgo.  The Candy Club points given on first deposit can be redeemed against bingo tickets or mini game credits, and the free spins in the alternate slots offer really are free – whatever you win, you keep.  Each Candy Club point, if redeemed for bingo credit, is worth 10p – so basically, the welcome offer is broadly equivalent to a 100% deposit match with no wagering requirement to worry about.

Another unique feature of bgo (introduced in Spring 2018) is the slot tournaments.  These have entry requirements usually involving having made a recent deposit, but are otherwise free to enter.  The player is given a certain number of Tournament Spins (not real money) to win as much as they can in the time limit (again, the winnings are not real money but are for scoring purposes only).  The highest scoring players win prizes of cash (a huge £5000, for the winner of the Friday Big One weekly tournament) or free spins.
