Betfair is one of the biggest names in online gambling, and their pioneering sports betting technology – which allows players to act as both a punter and bookie – has revolutionised online betting.
As with any company of Betfair’s size, their product range has grown exponentially over the company’s lifetime, and today, you’ll find a number of areas on their site including: Casino, Live Dealer Casino, Poker, Arcade, and of course Bingo.
Boasting a huge customer base (at the time of writing there are over 1,400 players using the bingo games alone) and powered by Virtue Fusion technology, Betfair Bingo is both secure and reliable. In this post, we’re going to look at some of the bingo games on offer, along with the side games, payment information and more.
Betfair break their bingo games down into three main sections; 90-ball, 75-ball and Specials. These options are displayed on the bingo homepage, and if you scroll to the bottom of said page you’ll see the next six games within each category, allowing you to plan your approach.
Below, we’ll cover the main games and the rooms available:
There are a number of popular games which use the 90-ball format, and a couple have pretty tasty looking jackpots attached too, so it can be well worth grabbing a few tickets.
For example, along with the common games like Roller Coaster and The House of Mirrors, you’ll also find the legendary Who Wants to be a Millionaire room, which – fittingly – offers a life changing £1 Million jackpot, and with tickets available at just 5 pence there is huge potential to win big.
Another popular 90-ball jackpot is The Big Wheel, which offers a guaranteed prize of £75 along with a progressive jackpot of £15,000 at the time of writing. Tickets to this game cost 15 pence, and it’s one of the more popular games that Betfair Bingo run, with an average of around 400 players per game.
New 90-ball games begin every minute or two, and both The Big Wheel and Who Wants to be a Millionaire games run every ten minutes.
Betfair Bingo offer two main 75-ball games; Helter Skelter and Deal or No Deal. Both are popular on the Virtue Fusion network and can be found at almost all of the sites which run on Fusion software. If you’re into playing low stakes bingo games with decent prize pools attached, then these two games could be for you.
Every Deal or No Deal 75-ball game is a progressive jackpot, and tickets cost just 5 pence, with a guaranteed £80 win per game. The Helter Skelter game, on the other hand, offers both progressive and non-progressive jackpot games.
The prices for tickets to Helter Skelter games vary and are dependant on the prize pool, but they rarely cost more than 10 pence, with 5 pence appearing to be the most common price.
Special Bingo Games
The ‘Specials’ tab is where you’ll find some of the more unique games, and while the cost of tickets here is higher (typically around 50 pence), you can find a number of games with tickets starting at just 2 pence, making it a viable option for players on all budgets.
The Roller Coaster progressive jackpot is arguably the most popular game in here, and it currently offers a stonking £40,000 in prize money – and that’s just one of three progressive jackpots that run.
6 games start every 2 minutes meaning you’ll never be waiting long to get going, and as they are open 24/7, you can enjoy the specials any time you like.
Don’t Miss: The Rainbow Riches Bingo features another juicy progressive jackpot, and with tickets at just 5 pence there’s never been a better time to play.
Betfair offer a large number of side games, 81 in total, all of which can be found in ‘Games’ under the Betfair Bingo tab. For even more choice, you can venture into any other area on the site, and as players use the same account for all sections of the site, you can stay logged in to Bingo and quickly nip across to the Arcade.
In terms of the games provided within the Bingo tab itself, you’ll find a range of slots, along with Roulette, and a ton of scratch card games to enjoy.
Slots wise, some of the more popular games include: Double Juicy, Zodiac Super Nova, Wild Gambler, Bounty of the Beanstalk, Britain’s Got Talent Superstar, Bouncy Balls, Leprechaun’s Luck, and plenty more.
Just one Roulette game is available – Mini Roulette – so the scratch cards are next up if we’re looking for something to compare with the generous range of slot games.
Enter the scratch card game area (otherwise known as Instant Win games), and you’ll find over 18 scratch games to enjoy, with the most popular including: Night Owl, Bonus Boutique, Luck O the Pots, Sherluck Holmes, Game Set Cash, and more.
While Betfair Bingo don’t offer a VIP scheme as such, they do offer what’s known as the ‘Private Party: VIP Lounge’, which is an invitation only bingo game run on Friday each week.
Open between 7PM and 10PM GMT, this exclusive lounge is open to all Betfair Bingo players who have wagered at least £25 on Bingo games between Monday-Thursday. Do so, and you’ll automatically qualify for entry to the VIP Lounge where you can enjoy three hours of free bingo, with £1,500 in prizes up for grabs.
Payments & Limits
Betfair are incredibly liberal when it comes to their withdrawal limits and payment options. There are a large number of deposit and withdrawal options, including all major Credit/Debit cards, plus EWallets, Skrill, Neteller and PayPal.
The Bingo operator doesn’t specify any withdrawal limits, but judging by their sports betting section, you should have no issues making multiple withdrawals per day, with virtually non-existent caps.
Withdrawals are processed pretty speedily, it usually takes less than a day, so your hard won cash can be with you before you know it.
