The Virtue Fusion £200K Slots Prize Draw runs again in October.

The draw takes place on November 30th and there are more than 10,000 cash prizes.
At Gala Bingo there is a free to enter prize draw promotion called All The Calls. They have made a video in three parts (for their new TV ad) which contains references to all 90 bingo calls; watch the video and identify all of the calls correctly to enter. There are FOUR prize draws to enter, all taking place on 8th December. There’s £30,000 of prizes to be won in the first three draws (one for each of the three parts of the video) with thousands of prizes each time. Everyone who gained entry to all three of these draws by correctly identifying all of the bingo calls in all three parts of the video will also be entered into the fourth draw, which has just one prize of a whopping £20,000 cash.
At Sun Bingo there’s a multi stranded promotion with tickets to the Sun Bingo All Star Hotel at Christmas to be won. This exclusive event takes place on 8th – 10th December at a 3 star hotel in Blackpool with singers, dancers, celebs, bingo, quizzes and more. There are two ways to win tickets (and each ticket comes with a plus one):
- Play All Star Hotel Bingo in the Candy, Penny Press or Cabaret Rooms at 9:05pm every evening until 20th November. Tickets are priced at 20p each and the full house prize is an All Star Hotel Ticke. The 1 line prize is £5 and the 2 line prize is £10 – apart from the game on Mondays when all three prizes are tickets. You can collect a free ticket to the next Monday game when you play the All Star Wheel daily game (available to players who deposited and spent £10 the previous day).
- Enter the All Star Hotel Slots Draw which takes place weekly (Mon – Sun) until 19th November. There are three tickets to be won each week and after opting in and depositing £10 players get one draw entry for each £10 of play on any slot games. Each week there is a triple ticket game (details on site) that awards three entries per £10 of play instead of one. You can enter each draw as many times as you like and if you enter at least once but don’t win, you’ll receive a free ticket to the Monday All Star Hotel Bingo game.
Tickets for the Monday game can also be purchased for 20p each but there will undoubtedly be an awful lot of free tickets in play.
At Sun Bingo’s sister site Fabulous Bingo you can win pairs of tickets to see vocal harmony band The Overtones play at a venue near you. The first step is to check the tour itinerary on site and enter the code for the venue closest to you in the bingo lobby. From there the promotion, which runs until 20th November, works very much like the promotion at Sun. There’s the nightly games with a pair of tickets for the full house winner; they play at 9.20pm with a ticket price of 10p. There’s the special Monday game, or rather three games playing at 9.05pm, 9.20pm and 9.35pm, that you can collect tickets for when you spin the premium daily wheel (again, you need to have deposited and spent £10 the day before the qaulify). And there’s the weekly prize draw, with the minor difference that there’s 6 pairs of tickets to be won each week and you get one entry for each £10 you play on bingo.
The daily bingo and minigame missions at Unibet Bingo and bingo.com continue. Currently the rewards are scratchcards; you can collect up to 3 every day by completing missions. Every day you can also collect a silver scratchcard by spending £10 on bingo and/or a gold scratchcard by spending £25 on bingo.
At Buzz Bingo their wonderful live bingo sessions now run every day of the week from noon until 10pm. Different features run at lunchtime and then every hour until 8pm, and then after that there’s a different promotion in the evening for every day of the week, all with live video hosts who join in the chat.
Gamesys sites continue to run free Slot Masters tournaments with cash and free spins to be won but (until at least 3rd December) they are now back to the original game, Cash in the Keep. Slot Masters tournaments were also a fixture at Entain sites but seem to have been removed now, perhaps because they also run their own free slot tournaments every day.
At tombola there’s TWO recently introduced new bingo games – Wordsearch which is one of their most entertaining yet and the only slightly more traditional bingo40. Over at tombola arcade, the Super Spins daily game now has 50,000 extra prizes each week, but you need to have staked £5 real money in the last 7 days to play.
