Bingo, Casino and Slots News

We have to be honest, Betfair Bingo isn’t one of the brands that we visit on a regular basis. The reason is simple, bingo has always felt like the poor relation with this brand.

However, with recent changes to the tax levied against bingo sites and the substantial amount of amendments to the welcome offers, we had reason to visit recently and this is one site that have really slashed their new player bonus!

Bonus For Newbies At Betfair Bingo

Once upon a time, at least at the last check we did at the site, new players were offered quite an impressive deal.

Players who made their first deposit with the site of £10 were awarded a £30 bingo bonus and £20 games bonus when their original deposit had been spent.

This is not the case now. We popped along to Betfair Bingo recently and the current offer is substantially less. As a new player you are now only offered what is, in essence, a 100% cash match bonus.

However, whilst you get very little by way of a cash match, you also get access to the Newbies Room – but it’s not enough in our opinion.

The Newbie Room At Betfair Bingo

The Newbie Room is only open on a Tuesday evening and to gain entry you have to wager at least £5 before 4pm on a Tuesday evening. When you have done this, you will be given access from 7pm until 10pm and able to play free games.

We don’t think the site does enough anymore to attract players to their bingo product and with competition rife amongst sites powered by the Virtue Fusion / Playtech software, could we soon see this brand drop bingo from their portfolio?
