What Is Betfair Bingo Ball Scratcher

Published On 1st October 2023

Free to play games have always been a popular tool used by bingo operators to keep players returning. Tombola have two daily free games across both Bigno and Arcade, William Hill have The Bonus Drop, Jackpotjoy have Tiki's Catch Of The Day and there's also Instant Spins at Ladbrokes plus Paddy's Wonder Wheel. Joining these games is one courtesy of Betfair Bingo. It's called Betfair Bingo Ball Scratcher and gives you the chance to win up to 100 free spins daily. You don't need to deposit to play either although terms do apply. Unlike many of their rivals, Betfair have decided to go for a simple scratchcard game for Bingo Ball Scratcher. There are no spinning wheels here. But is it any good and is it worth taking the time to play daily? We took a closer look.

About Bingo Ball Scratcher?

Betfair Bingo Ball Scratcher is a simple scratchcard game. When you login to the site you are presented with a grid of six squares. Sadly you don't get to scratch the panels but instead it's a case of clicking a link to reveal all the symbols. We kind of think that Betfair could have made a little more effort in creating a better user experience but that's a minor grumble. Once all the symbols are revealed then you'll find out if you're a winner. The aim of the game is to match three identical symbols in order to win a prize. If you are successful and win a prize you will receive a message with details of the prize, as well as directions on how to use it. However what are the chances of winning? The table of prizes can be found on the Betfair Bingo Ball Scratcher promotions page and the big thing we've noted that the chance of getting no prize is 1 in 1.14 which by our understanding means that's you're not likely to win on the game.

Win Bonuses & Free Spins

The biggest prizes on offer are 100 Free Spins on Gems Gone Wild Power Reels and a 10 Slingo Bonus for Fluffy Favourites Slingo. The chances of winning these are 1 in 1500 according to the terms. Other prizes include bet on bingo or slingo to win a bonus. However if you don't win on Betfair Bingo Ball Scratcher you're always offered something in the way of a bonus. For example today we've been offered 5 free spins if we wager 5 on bingo. What is strange is that although this is offered as a consolation prize for losing on the game, it's also in the prize table which leaves us a little confused. Still it is a free game to play and it gives you the chance to possibly win spins. Originally our advice would be to give Bingo Ball Scratcher a try but don't hold out too much hope of winning! However since this original article we've had many issues with Betfair and can't recommend them to our visitors.

Betfair Prize Pinball

Anything that Betfair Bingo can do so can Betfair Casino. They launched their own free play game, Prize Pinball at the end of 2020. You can play Prize Pinball for free every day at Betfair Casino for your chance to win free spins, scratchcards, casino bonuses and cash prizes. Get one free play per customer per day from 00:00 to 23:59 UK time. No wagering on winnings. The game is a lot more interactive than Ball Scratcher in that you at least get to fire the ball around the pinball machine. Interestingly when you play Prize Pinball there's no consolation prize when you lose. The terms and conditions also don't show the chances of winning. The site does claim that you can win up to 100 in cash but we suspect that the chances of winning this are a lot higher than the 1 in 1500 for the Ball Scratcher top prizes. The good news for Prize Pinball is that no deposit is required to play and you can play daily. Like all our listed free games they're tough to win but worth a play if you're a regular to any of the brands.
