When Playtech acquired Virtue Fusion – one of the leading bingo providers – in 2010, the largest bingo network in the industry was created. Well, at least in their eyes.
According to their site, they regularly attract 60,000 players a day, with 13,000 players all using their bingo games at some points. This does mean that they can afford to offer a huge international prize pool and some very enticing promotions.
Their sites offer multiple languages, multiple currencies, network-linked games, with a good mobile showing that includes HTML5, iOS and Android games for on-the-go bingo action.
Playtech’s tagline is “source of success” and they’ve managed to successfully power some of the biggest names in the gambling and online gaming industry, from Ladbrokes and Mecca to Gala and Bet365 Bingo. So the chances are you’ve played bingo on a Playtech-powered site.
Playtech also boast one of the largest libraries of embedded mini games, with 65 or so options across the network powered by Playtech themselves, Ash or GTS. Think progressive jackpot slots, scratchcards, roulette and blackjack.
However, the brand is best known for its progressive online slots, including their popular Marvel-themed offerings and the fan favourite 9-reel wild west slots. Since 2002, they’ve paid out a whopping 195 million Euros in their Win a Jackpot network and claim to pay out over £150 million a month in bingo prizes.
The draw of Playtech is the aforementioned 65 mini games as well as a sophisticated interface and options to play in multiple currencies with multiple languages. Playtech power a great number of European sites.
Generally, there's a lot of variation in jackpots, deposit bonuses and other promotions. These days deposits are likely to be £5-10 with 3 times that as bonus. Ladbrokes currently offer an extra £30 for a £10 deposit.
