Betfred Bingo verdict

Betfred Bingo offers you an extensive selection of traditional and themed bingo games, including Cash Cubes, Rainbow Riches, and Lucky Numbers Bingo. There’s a varied selection of side games to compliment your gaming experience, a mobile offering which allows you to play for the same prizes as desktop players, and promotions where you can win mammoth cash prizes, as well as take advantage of discounted game cards and bonus deals. But, is it the bookies’ favourite to win?

design & Usability

The BetFred Bingo homepage is packed with useful information thanks to its latest redesign. It allows you to see the welcome offer, promotional highlights, and links to sections of the site such as recent winners, bingo rooms, side games, and the help pages. The entire website uses Betfred’s blue, red, and white brand colours, and there are colourful images that convey a genuine sense of fun. Plus, the Virtue Fusion-powered lobby makes finding your favourite types of games a breeze.

customer Support

Betfred Bingo provides 24/7 support via Live Help (N.B., look for the tab at the bottom-left of any page), email, telephone, and post.

bonuses & Promotions

A key reason to sign up at Betfred Bingo is so that you can claim a welcome bonus of £30 when you deposit and spend just £10 on bingo cards. Better still, there are no wagering requirements whatsoever, and that’s a rarity in the online gaming industry.

The majority of promotions are generic Virtue Fusion offers that can be found at multiple sites. Although it’s a shame that there aren’t more unique offers and brand artwork, the promotions do cover pretty much everything that bingo players enjoy, such as big-money games, value nights, guaranteed giveaways, penny games, and free games.

software & Gameplay

Betfred Bingo is a site that buzzes without being overcrowded, so there’s always a good atmosphere in the rooms. We found chat hosts in abundance, all of whom were eager to answer any questions in between running chat games.

If you prefer to play in networked rooms, look out for Virtue Fusion’s BingoLinx games as they aren’t just great fun to take part in, but also offer the biggest prizes. The Mini Money Room is a good place to go for bargain ticket offers, and if you want to try out some exclusive game variants, simply stop by the Cash Cubes, Rainbow Riches, and Lucky Numbers Bingo rooms.

device Compatibility

If you look out for the “Mobile Bingo” tab on the main menu, you can find out how to play the many different bingo game variants, scratch cards, and slots on your mobile device. There’s no need to download any software or app as you can play via the no-download mobile website using the same username and password as you do on a desktop.

safety & Security

The terms and conditions explain how data is encrypted and games are hosted on secured networks. The site is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission, and links to Responsible Gambling, as well as Betfred’s Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions are listed on every page. 

variety & Originality

There’s a good supply of bingo rooms on offer, including the popular variants that come as part of Virtue Fusion’s software. It’s just a shame that there aren’t more exclusive rooms such as the site’s After Hours Club to make Betfred Bingo stand out from the other sites on the Virtue Fusion network. However, free and cheap games are plentiful, as are jackpot games, and with the BingoLinx specials, you’ve got better chances of winning generous cash prizes.

Although though the slots selection is impressive (and you can access even more by visiting Betfred’s Casino, Games, and Vegas sites through the main menu using your bingo account), there are no exclusive slots as yet.

payments & Withdrawals

You can make deposits and withdrawals to and from your account using Visa Debit, Visa Electron, Maestro, Visa Credit, Neteller, Paypal, Skrill, Paysafecard, Ukash, bank transfer, or by visiting any of Betfred’s shops. The minimum deposit and withdrawal amounts are £5 for most payment options, and the most you can withdraw is £10,000. The operator aims to process withdrawal requests within 48 hours of receiving them.

VIP Programme

Betfred Bingo has a VIP programme that all funded members can enjoy. It includes six levels (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Sapphire, and Diamond), and all of them allow you to swap the loyalty points you earn through spending real money on bingo games and certain side games for bonus funds or cash.

While the structure of the VIP programme is well explained, there don’t appear to be many advantages of moving up the levels bar having to spend less to earn additional loyalty points.

Luckily, there are some other perks available, although they are listed as promotions. For example, every friend you refer to the site earns you a £15 bonus when they register and spend £5 on game cards. You’ll also receive a surprise birthday bonus to give you even more reason to celebrate on your special day.

conclusion

Betfred Bingo is backed by a trusted name in the betting world that also has an excellent reputation for its customer service. The varied bingo variants and a profusion of slots and side games, as well as rooms that open around the clock, mean that there’s never a dull moment. The welcome bonus which comes with no wagering requirements gets a big thumbs up from our reviews team. And, although we’d like to see some Betfred-exclusive promotions sitting alongside the Virtue Fusion ones, it’s not a deal-breaker.
