Betfred Bingo Review
Betfred is another bookmaker who have a bingo channel as part of their online presence. The bingo wing joins sportsbook, poker, casino and games to give players a full range of gambling products. Like it's fellow bookies, Betfred Bingo uses the Virtue Fusion platform which means plenty of variety in terms of bingo rooms, jackpots, promotions and slots. New players who join this site and deposit/spend £10 can claim a 100% bingo bonus plus 100 free spins with all winnings paid in cash.
Introducing Betfred Bingo
The Betfred Bingo channel has undergone a number of changes over the years. Amongst it's many designs was a 70s style gameshow look but that was quickly dropped. These days it's a clean and basic offering that's fairly easy to use. The top of the homepage features the latest promotions whilst below you'll find bingo room activity and the most popular slots. It does lack the big promo attraction of a Mecca or Buzz, but it compares favourably with other bookmakers such as Paddy Power, William Hill and Ladbrokes. The site is accessible on mobile, desktop and tablet so you can play on the go. Apps have previously been available for Betfred Bingo but these aren't featured and are not needed either.
Betfred Bingo Welcome Offer
New players to Betfred Bingo are welcomed with an attractive bonus. Players are required to register, login, deposit and stake £10 on bingo only within 30 days of registering a chat name to get a £10 bonus plus 100 slot spins. This offer was added in December 2020 and what's new about it is that any wins from the spins and bingo bonus are paid in cash and therefore no wagering terms apply. To claim this bonus make sure you use the code BINGO100 when you make the first deposit. Betfred also has a newbie room which is accessible for 10 days after registration and creation of a chat name. Any wins from within this room are paid as a bonus. Terms apply.
Featured Bingo Rooms
As a Virtue Fusion brand, Betfred Bingo offers players a good range of games and slots. The lobby is very sparse and not as jazzy as other sites. That said you will find the usual 75, 80 and 90 ball rooms such as Betfred Bunker, Extreme Bingo, Chill Out, and The Mystery Room. These are joined by themed games such as Age Of The Gods, Rainbow Riches, Cash Cubes, Housey and Fluffy Favourites Bingo. Session Bingo is now part of the roster and we think that Gala's old Bingo Beats game is going to be another new addition. That said, compared to Mecca or even newcomers Buzz, Betfred does have less to offer in terms of rooms but that's only an issue if you're a fan of variants such as Deal Or No Deal.
Betfred Bingo Promotions
Promotions are regular at Betfred Bingo, but for the most part these are network offers. For example £1million Slots Prize Draws, Escalator Jackpots etc. However, Betfred do run exclusives and in recent times they've dished out experience vouchers and other prizes. During October 2021 they also held a cash drop where a total of £1500 was up for grabs. Look out too for regular offers such as Roll On Monday, Bonus Back and Thanks A Slot. It's also worth keeping an eye on promos across the other Betfred channels as you may find free trivia games under live casino and bonuses within the lottery section. For additional promotions do make sure you follow Betfred Bingo on Facebook as they frequently host mini-giveaways.
Slots are now a big element of Betfred Bingo and indeed the Betfred service. Under bingo you'll find popular slots such as Rainbow Riches, Clover Rollover, Bar-X and 99 Time. For more exciting options you might want to drop in on Betfred Games, Vegas or Casino. Games boasts Daily Jackpots and slots including Monopoly Heights, Beavis & Butthead and a good selection of Megaways options. If you like a live game shows then head to Deal Or No Deal The Big Draw within live casino for the closest live bingo experience. This popular game show is also joined by Buffalo Blitz and Age Of The Gods. One game that seems to be missing from Betfred's roster is Slingo - which is a big surprise or an error on their search.
Take Time To Think
Betfred have a section dedicated to responsible gambling and are one of the brands advocating the new 'Take Time To Think' campaign. All the expected tools are here to help you stay in control including deposit limits, reality checkes and time-outs. You can choose to apply a time out for a period of 24 hours, 48 hours, 7 days or any period you choose up to a maximum of 6 weeks. If you feel that this is insufficient or need to close your account then Betfred can implement a self-exclusion.
Join Betfred Bingo and you will have a decent platform to enjoy top bingo games and slots. Additionally on the same account you can wager on sports, poker, lottos and casino. It's a well known brand and offers safety and security when it comes to depositing. Compared to it's main competitors - e.g. Paddy Power, Bet365 and William Hill - it's decent, but against the bigger Virtue Fusion sites like Gala you'll have less options, at least in terms of rooms and promos. Whilst Betfred does offer plenty of variants like Age Of The Gods and Cash Cubes, it does lack things like Deal Or No Deal Bingo. It's also one of the few Virtue Fusion brands that doesn't have it's own exclusive 40 or 50 ball game. That all said it's not a deal breaker and there is most certainly enough here to excite and entertain most visitors.
