Betfair Bingo launched in March 2013 on Virtue Fusion/Playtech software. This is another sportsbook site ithat has added online bingo to its menu to complete its all round offer of all things gaming. There are great offers, friendly hosts and a great selection of games.
The site adopted the more mobile friendly HTML5 software version in April 2016 – making the whole site feel more modern and vibrant and offering different ways to watch the games play out thanks to the simplified ticket options. The range of bingo and slot games is being expanded all the time and you will never be short of a new game to play.
The sites with a high street bookmaker presence are making use of this added accessibility by offering players the chance to be able to play their online games with real cash. Betfair is the latest operator to do this following their merger with Paddy Power.
With effect from July 2017 Betfair players can deposit cash into their online account via any Paddy Power shop. All you will need is your Betfair account user ID and some photo ID such as passport or driver’s licence. Advise the cashier of how much you want to deposit, hand it over, they will sort out the transaction and give you a receipt. Then either continue to play on your mobile or on your pc or laptop when you get back home.
