Betfair has recently launched a bingo site and it’s quickly becoming one of the most popular bingo sites in town. Why, there are so many titles that you could spend your entire weekend here and not get bored. It’s no wonder that thousands of players across the UK bustle over to Betfair Bingo to get their bingo fix!
Welcome bonus package
First you need to deposit a min of £5, then you must stake a minimum of £5 in cash on Bingo tickets, on any Bingo game.
If you complete the minimum staking (£5), you’ll get a £25 bonus. Your bonus is split into two, consisting of a £15 Bingo bonus and a £10 Games bonus. This give you £25 to play with from a £5 wager.
Your bonuses will be credited to your Bingo bonus balance and your Games bonus balance once you have completed the minimum £5 cash stake. Your bonus will be credited within 48 hours.
Each of your bonuses will be available for one calendar month from the time they are applied to your bonus balances. If after one month, the whole or a part of a bonus remains in your bonus balance, it will be removed.
Besides free cash, Betfair Bingo also welcomes all new players with a free bingo room, open every Tuesday between 7-10pm. It’s the perfect place to make new friends and generate some extra pocket money too. To qualify, new players will need to have wagered at least £5.

Visiting Betfair Bingo is like visiting a jumbo shopping mall. The bingo site has every single game — slot or bingo alike — that you have ever heard of. Whatever it is that you wanted to try, you could play it at Betfair Bingo. The hallways are simply packed with promotional posters and bold headings, shouting about events with six-figure prizes. If you ever need help, the Concierge/customer service team is close by and ready to help. The site works like clockwork, offering a nice sense of comfort to your gaming experience.
- Debit and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Maestro)
To process a withdrawal from Betfair Bingo, simply go over to your account section, choose an amount, then confirm your account password. You’ll usually receive your cashout within one working day, if not two if the bank takes slightly longer. The site operates using a ‘closed loop policy; which means that you’ll withdraw using the same payment method that you used to deposit. This is common in British and European casinos, to discourage money laundering using online casinos.
You may have first learnt about the Betfair brand from its extensive betting and sportsbook offerings. The brand has expanded dramatically in the recent years and their Bingo site is just as delightful! There are over 10 different bingo rooms open at any time and 80+ slot games too. Games start every couple of minutes, so you’ll never have long to wait. Bingo tickets at Betfair start from as little as 1p per ticket, and there are even free bingo games every now and then. Games with free tickets are highlighted with a Star icon; hover over the icon and it’ll show you instructions on how to claim your free games.
Have you ever ventured into the world of non-traditional bingo formats? If you haven’t, you’re missing out, mate! The Rollercoaster Bingo game is a nice variant that you should definitely try. The game is set up such that you’re filling carriages with bingo balls. You’ll buy carriages instead of bingo tickets. Fill yours in the first five calls and you’ll win the £5,000 prize pot! Fill it in six calls and you’ll get £500 instead. It’s quick, cheap and fun!
Another fun variant is titled Cash Cubes. This one is designed especially for mobile and tablet players. Cash Cubes is a fast-paced 35-ball bingo game that is played with Cubes rather than cards. When a number is called, one side of the cube will turn yellow. Once four numbers per side have been called, the cube will ‘unlock’ and move down to the bottom of the screen. You’ll win full house when you unlock four cubes. This game starts at only 10p.
The slots collection is pretty impressive too. A few popular ones include Wild Gambler, Britain’s Got Talent Superstar and Fluffy Favourites. You could scroll between the many different pages of the slots catalog every single day and yet still find something new to play.
If there’s one thing I like about high street gaming companies, it’s that they always run lots of promotions. These jumbo sites spend hundreds of thousands on TV ads, and the equivalent (if not more) on prize giveaways and simple cash bonuses! Betfair Bingo is no different.
Here are a few promotions that caught my eye as I was perusing the Betfair Bingo site:
Bet £10, get £5 — Simple proposition that helps me play for longer
£1 Million Slots Prize Draw — 60K lucky players will walk away with fun prizes
Super Value Night — All tickets cost 5p or less!
Eliminators Chat Night — Contestants are pitted against Chat Managers in a test of general knowledge, with £25 bonuses for all winners!
£500,000 giveaway — Guaranteed prizes in the Big Wheel Bingo Room
As always, be careful with each promotion’s terms and conditions. There is usually a bonus code to enter and a minimum deposit amount to qualify for the draw.
Fancy a cheeky round of Bingo on your morning commute to work? Perhaps some banter with your bingo roomies over lunch. Well, now you can play bingo on the go! The Betfair Bingo app is available for both iOS and Android devices. All of its products work without a single fault, which is expected given its reputation as a global gaming brand.
Betfair Bingo’s customer support team is a dream! Betfair prides itself in replying to chat messages and phone calls within 30 seconds, and replying emails within four hours. There are also options to contact them via Facebook Messenger or via a dedicated Customer Service Twitter account.
Phone: 0344 871 0000 (UK), 7.30am to 12.30 am
Online Chat: Available on the site 24/7
If you’re extra loyal to Betfair Bingo (i.e. play exclusively at this site and wager at least £25 each week), Betfair Bingo thanks you accordingly. There is a private VIP Lounge with £1,500 worth of free bingo tickets every Friday.
Community and Social Media
Betfair Bingo does not have a Facebook account at the moment. Its Twitter account features the occasional cat meme and funny quote, but it’s quite thin on the promotions side.
Betfair Bingo offers the high-quality bingo that you’d expect from a brand its size. Lots of bingo rooms, many promotions scheduled on its calendar and premium customer service, regardless of whether you’re a casual player or a high-roller. I am incredibly impressed with Betfair Bingo and once you visit the site yourself, I’m sure you’ll agree!
