£100,000 Escalator Jackpots At Virtue Fusion


Sue Dawson

Rating: 4.6/5


From 14th December 2019 till 4th January 2020, Virtue Fusion bingo sites are running a pair of cracking network promotions – Advent Escalators and Winter Scorchers.

Advent Escalators & Winter Scorchers – How To Play

Each of the Virtue Fusion network rooms at the bingo sites in the promotion has a progressive jackpot which in the normal course of events would drop when someone wins full house in the specified number of calls (33 for Network 90, 34 for Deal Or No Deal 90, 35 for Speed 90 and Fluffy Favourites, 40 for 5 Line and Deal Or No Deal 75).  During an escalator jackpot, the number of calls gradually goes up until the jackpot drops (and is split 50/50 between the full house winner or winners and the tickets held by non winning players).

In the Advent Escalators (and Double Escalators) the ball count goes up by two when the event starts and by a further two each hour, on the hour, until the jackpot is won.  If it hasn’t been won by 23.45 in the case of the escalators with a 6pm start time, or 17.45 in the case of the escalators with a noon start time, the ball count goes to the maximum ensuring that the jackpot will drop in the next game.  After the jackpot has been won the ball count returns to normal and the jackpot starts again at its seed value.

The bigger the jackpot, the more players it attracts and therefore the more likely it is to drop midway through the afternoon or evening (depending on the start time). Sometimes it doesn’t though, and that when things really start to get exciting as everyone piles into the room and maxes out on tickets for the last 45 minutes.

As if the Advent Escalators weren’t enough, the rooms that are running the escalator jackpots also have guaranteed prize money games at 9pm and 10pm, with tickets priced at 20p.

This isn’t the first time Virtue Fusion have run big escalator jackpots over the Christmas period; in previous years there have been some very big jackpots won before many players were aware of the promotion and the way it has been done this time, with a relatively slow build up for 10 days before Christmas and the double escalators and really big prizes starting on Boxing Day when everyone’s got a bit more time to play, seems much fairer.  It is still worth checking out the ones before Christmas though, as the actual jackpots on offer may be considerably larger than the minimum.  For example, as of Monday 16th December the Network 90 room jackpot is running at around £22K.  Virtue Fusion are only guaranteeing the seed value of £5K for the escalator on Friday 20th because someone might win the room jackpot in the meantime – but if they don’t, that sum will be in play instead of the minimum.
