Hbingo is a new addition to the Pragmatic Play platform and a surprise addition to the Betvictor stable. The rumour mill suggests that Hbingo is going to be the new site for Heart Bingo who will be departing the Gamesys platform in the near future. We've said a few times that 2021 is the year for platform moves and this further cements that view. So what does Hbingo bring to the show? Well you'll find a bunch of 75, 80 and 90 ball rooms plus Pragmatic's much hyped Bingo Blast.
As is standard nowawadays Hbingo is a simple but stylish looking site. The familiar red of Heart is evident within the navigation whilst the bulk of the homepage is dominated by the welcome offer. Hot picks, featured bingo rooms, top slots and live game shows complete the homepage. It looks great on mobile, tablet and desktop - no app is required. In our view Hbingo actually looks a better prospect than Betvictor Bingo. The latter had the issue of being integrated into an already established design whilst Hbingo is basically a new brand. In our view there's little difference between the design of this new site and the established Heart Bingo brand on Gamesys,
Hbingo Welcome Bonus
New players to Hbingo are offered a bonus package after making an initial deposit and wagering. Register, login, opt-in, deposit and spend at least £10 within 7 days to receive £30 of bonuses for selected bingo games. This bonus comes with a reasonable x1 wagering term. In addition to the bonus qualifying players also receive 30 free spins on the popular Hell's Kitchen slot. Any wins from these spins are paid as cash and therefore no wagering terms apply. Finally there's also a newbie room which is accessible for five days after the first wager. See promotions for more info. Note if you've already joined Betvictor Bingo then you can't claim this offer.
There are a number of different rooms at Hbingo offering 30, 75, 80 and 90 ball games. The main rooms are Hot Gossip, Dance Floor, Fun Fest and Brunch Club. Note that most of these rooms are shared with other brands that use the Pragmatic Play product. These are joined by Pragmatic Play's Bingo Blast. As far as we're aware none of these rooms are exclusive to Hbingo so you'll always be playing against players from other sites. Hopefully in the future we will see new rooms - both networked and exclusive - added to the roster which to be fair seems quite light at time of writing. The Newbie Room is shared with Betvictor.
Click on promotions and you'll find very limited offers for bingo players at Hbingo. Other than the welcome offer there's just a newbie room to get excited about. Play Bingo for the first time and get 5 days free access to the Newbie Room where you can win £200 in cash prizes each day. The room is available for 5 days from the first wager only. All other promotions - i.e. the jackpot rooms - are those offered by the Pragmatic Play Network. One thing we really liked about Heart Bingo is the number of big prize promotions they ran. We're hoping this continues! One thing that won't be on Hbingo though is the daily free to play game for depositors.
2021 is most certainly the year of platform changes and Heart moving to Hbingo on Pragmatic Play is up there with Gala switching to Entain. Now Gala's move hasn't gone down well with players and we'd expect a similar reaction here. Players will find a considerable difference in the bingo product when compared to that on Gamesys. And despite multiple big name brands and platforms using Pragmatic Play it's still not quite there in our view. If Hbingo continues the big promotions of it's predecessor - and players take to the switch - then 'H' could be a big success on the new platform. If not then we expect long term Heart players will seek out new brands.
