One of the biggest bingo sites to hit us recently is Betfair Bingo. Betfair itself has been around since 1999 and is now the largest betting exchange in the world. Is that relevant to bingo players? Yes! – definitely! The question we have to ask with many new bingo sites is ‘How secure are they?’ Well there is no issue with that here! Betfair Bingo is simply an extension to what they already operate on a massive scale. So they know how to look after their customers and protect their money.
Ok – so they are safe and secure. But does a company who have made their name in sports betting know how to run a bingo site? The only comment we can make here is ‘Take a look!’. These guys haven’t added on a small sideline just to see how it goes – they’ve hit the ground running! The games are large and colourful with superb gameplay – with variations of both 75 ball bingo and 90 ball bingo.
What Betfair Bingo games are available?
There are several types of both 75 ball and 90 ball bingo available on a continual basis. Their most popular game would appear to be a version of the TV game ‘Deal or No Deal’. But the ‘Big Money’ game is definitely ‘BingoLinx’ where huge monetary prizes can be won. There are also many games to be played for smaller jackpots but cost silly amounts to play – ‘Penny Bingo’ for instance.
Are there any other games?
This is Betfair so – Yes!! And we don’t just mean the sports betting side of the business! At the time of writing this review there are an additional 120 side games to play – and this figure is increasing all the time as more are added. These include slots, casino games and scratchcards.
And Betfair Bingo bonuses and promotions?
As a new customer your £10 deposit is instantly turned into £40 to play with which is a good deal to begin with. But during your first week you can then enter the ‘Newbie Room’ which not only ‘eases you in’ but also provides the opportunity to win some great prizes.
But there are also a wealth of promos playing continuously. Try the ‘Daily Deal’, ‘Penny Bingo’, BOGOF Bingo, a daily free scratchcard and loads of others. And of course regular free bingo games!
And on top of all that there is the Betfair Bingo loyalty scheme – also called the Betfair Bingo Club. This involves accruing points the more games you play which can be ‘cashed in’ to play further games. If you reach the highest level – the ‘High Striker’ – these points can be redeemed for real cash. But what we really like about this loyalty scheme is that when you hit each level there is no going back. Most schemes such as this rely on your continuous play to maintain your level and connected bonuses – but here you keep your level for life!
What about mobile compatibility?
Yes you can play tablet or mobile bingo by downloading their app available from the site. And as an added bonus you will receive an extra £5 to bet with upon your first £5 mobile stake.
Is there a chat room?
There’s a fantastic chat community centred around the Betfair Bingo rooms with an easy to use guide on bingo lingo for chat room newbies. Btw – FYI a Qt CM helps with BB so Np. TC and GLE. (By the way – for your information a cutie chat moderator helps with Betfair Bingo so no problem. Take care and good luck everyone).
Depositing and withdrawing funds.
All the main forms of deposit are available such as the major credit and debit cards. Also Paypal, Neteller, Paysafe, Skrill, Ukash, Instadebit and Western Union. Or just a simple cheque or bank transfer.
If you already have an account with Betfair you can simply and easily transfer those funds over to your Betfair Bingo wallet.
And the customer support?
We have to refer back to the fact that Betfair are already an established online company. You can speak directly to an advisor by phone between 7:30 am and 12:30 am 7 days a week, as well as a Live Chat facility. Or use the email facility to contact them at any time.
And their advice on responsible gambling is second to none. They don’t just have a policy in place – they have a whole separate website! This includes, help, relevant links, a budget calculator, facilities for setting limits and much more. As we say many times throughout this site – hopefully you will never have to use these. But online bingo sites who provide this show clearly how much they value the welfare of their customers over profit!
