A Quick Look at Betfred Bingo

Playing at Betfred Bingo UK not only means high quality online bingo games from Playtech, but you also get to access the complete portfolio of Betfred sites. This includes sports betting, poker, lotto, live casino games, slots and much more. As one of the biggest names in online gaming, the bingo rooms here certainly don’t disappoint.

Bonuses & Promotions

The Betfred Bingo Welcome Offer

  • Spend £10, get £40 in bonuses & 50 slot spins – code required. No wagering on extra slot spins
  • Wagering requirements: 2x bingo bonus and 15x on slots bonus

 The Betfred Bingo new player offer gives UK players a £40 bonus, plus 50 extra spins. To claim your offer, make sure you enter the Betfred bonus code BINGO90; however, only deposits made using credit or debit cards are eligible.

Once you register and buy £10 in bingo tickets, you receive a £30 bingo bonus and a £10 slots bonus. There is a 2x wagering requirement attached to the bingo bonus, while the slots bonus comes with a 15x playthrough, so you need to spend £60 on bingo tickets and £150 on slots in order to clear the bonus.

You have 14 days to meet the wagering requirement, after which time any remaining bonus will be forfeited.

The 50 bonus spins are on the Playtech slot game Rainbow Ryan and you will be prompted to accept the offer within 24 hours of making your initial £10 bingo wager. They are valid for 7 days and are worth £0.10 each (£5 in total). Winnings are credited to your real money account and there is no wagering requirement.

This is the sort of Welcome Bonus that has something for everyone. Being able to use your bonus on both bingo and slots means you get to check out much more of the site, while the addition of the free spins with no playthrough attached to the winnings has the potential to add some real value to the deal. Overall, we rank this amongst the best new player bonuses we feature.

Ongoing Specials & VIP Program

Once you have signed up at Betfred Bingo, the benefits keep coming your way. The Loyalty Arcade is the six-tier VIP scheme which gives you a great range of rewards, and the more you play the more you earn. For every £1 you spend on bingo, you get three loyalty points, and as you progress through the Green, Red, Purple, Blue, Orange and VIP levels of membership you earn a variety of bonuses, including cash prizes and bonus bingo games.

Games & Software

Betfred Bingo bingo games all run on Playtech Virtue Fusion software, which offers a first rate playing experience no matter what sort of game you’re playing. There is 90 ball and 75 ball bingo on offer as you would expect, plus lots of other bingo variants as well. You can play in a variety of different rooms, like the Hangout Room, the Girls’ Night In Room, the Game On Room, the Mystery Room, Bonkers Bingo or Extreme Bingo. Ticket prices vary depending on the game and the room, but generally range between 5p and 50p.

As well as the classic versions of the game, you can also play some of the exciting new variations of bingo that are networked across multiple sites and offer huge progressive jackpot prizes. For instance, check out 36 ball Cash Cubes, Rainbow Riches (40 ball), or Lucky Numbers Bingo with a £10,000 prize pool.

There are also a range of scheduled games where you can buy your tickets in advance (as opposed to just joining a room when you log on). These games have set prizes and let you play the game even when you’re not online.

 Slots & Casinos

The side game selection means that when you’re not playing bingo (or even when you are!), you have a great range of choices. You can play different categories of Betfred Bingo slots, like Britain’s Got Talent and Gladiator, as well as progressive jackpot slots and scratch card games.

If you want to go further afield, check out the Casino, Live Casino, Games or Vegas tabs at the top of the page to access even more slots and casino games at other Betfred Bingo casino and gaming sites.

How to Deposit & Cash Out

Depositing

When playing at Betfred Bingo players have a number of payment options available. Along with Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards, you can use PayPal, Neteller, Skrill, PaySafe Card and direct bank transfer. The minimum deposit amount is £5 and funds are instantly credited to your account. There are no fees for using any of these payment methods.

 Cashing out

The processing period after you make a withdrawal request is generally 48 hours (during which time, it can be cancelled). Funds are then released on the next working day, but withdrawals to a credit or debit card, or via wire transfer, will be subject to further bank processing time. The minimum withdrawal amount is £5, except for bank transfer where it is £25.

Banking is one of the few areas where the performance of Betfred Bingo is only average when compared to other sites. The range of payment methods is relatively limited and the withdrawal times are no better than you find elsewhere. 

The Community

Betfred Bingo excels when it comes to creating a bingo community. On the home page, you get to find out more about recent winners (which always gives us hope!), while the images of happy players also help to create an upbeat feeling.

The chat games also have a big part to play in creating an enjoyable playing atmosphere, as they are always fun and engaging. Some of our favourites include Alphabet Chatter (guess the answer when the chat room host gives you a subject and a letter), Teaser (a series of challenging conundrums), and Missing Word (where you have to guess what’s missing from a film, book or song title).

The Facebook page is also one of the best around in the way it engages players. Especially fun are the Facebook games, where you use your chat name to play quizzes and games, and can win bingo bonuses as prizes. Facebook Messenger can also be used to make direct contact with the customer support team.

Take Betfred Bingo with you

If you want to play games on your mobile or tablet, you have a couple of options. For Apple iPhone or iPad users (iOS 9.0+), you can download the free Betfred Bingo app from the App Store (search ‘Betfred Bingo’). If you play on an Android smartphone or tablet (5.1+), the app is available from Google Play. You can also play directly in the browser of your device at betfred.mobi.

The method you choose to play i.e., using an app or at the Betfred Bingo mobile site, will depend on whether you play at other Betfred sites as well. Playing at the mobile site means that it can be a little time consuming to navigate your way to the bingo pages, but you have the added advantage of being able to navigate straight to other Betfred sites e.g., sports betting or casino, relatively easily.

On the other hand, if you play on the Betfred Bingo app, you go straight to bingo every time without having to navigate through a bunch of other pages, but it also means you will have to download a separate app if you want to have a punt on sport or races, for instance.

In our experience, there is no discernible difference in the gaming quality between the two – rather it depends on your playing habits and the levels of convenience you’re after.

Our take on Betfred Bingo

Betfred Bingo is undoubtedly one of the best bingo sites that we feature. In our view, it does just about everything right — from the high quality software, to the range of rooms, to the slots and side games, to the professionalism of the chat room hosts.

Both the desktop site and the Betfred Bingo mobile site look good (although there is a lot here, so they can sometimes be a little confusing to navigate), while the provision of an app means that you have choice as to how you play.

The only area where it could probably step up its game is in its banking provision. We’d like to see some additional payment methods, like Apple Pay or a pay by mobile option, and it would be good if the withdrawal times could be a little quicker (although we could say the same for just about every site here!)

After being so positive, it won’t come as any surprise that our Betfred Bingo review is going to conclude with a 5 stars out of 5 rating.

Have your say!

I joined Betfred a few years ago. I love the site, its a very relaxed and friendly place. I can honestly say its the only site that you get something back and you know you are playing a fair game. Any help i have needed has been sorted out straight away. I have won many times on slots and bingo. Its the only site i will continue playing on and I would highly recommend it.

Joined BetFred casino and deposited 10.00 by paysafe was confused at site and why I didn’t get welcome bonus. Contacted them as per there terms and cons before I placed any bet to inform didn’t receive bonus and was told the money had to be tranaferd from sports balance to casino and that I would get a different bonus, but to decline that and then I would get the offer of the bonus I signed up for.
This is awful and is a way of tricking customers into thinking they have accepted the correct bonus – anyway I declined as they suggested, but didn’t get the next bonus.
There was a lot of contact back and forth wasting my time and they wouldn’t even allow me to log a complaint.
I wanted my money back then they wanted my passport uploaded which I did – then they said I would have to go to one of their betting shops to get my money!
I explained that I could not enter a betting shop as did not want to be seen, but was told this was the only way I would be able to get my money. I have not placed one bet on this site this is illegal they cannot hold my funds I asked for a cheque to be sent and was told NO.
Contacted with the gambling commision they will have to return my funds and they cannot force individuals to enter there betting shops I will wait until they have to explain why there holding on to my funds stay clear of this site.

hello. i had a relapse and went back on betfred ;( still same roomie’s from when i was last on oh and still the same winners’ – lets get honest about this site, well here goes;;
1) I don’t trust there own rooms,,trust me do not even go there.
2) I don’t trust there slots, you may disagree if you wish. And they can say they have a RNG machine but from my experience of 7 years of playing a particular slot on 9 different sites, Betfreds same slot does not payout at all, and that’s not right and i dont care what anyone says,
3) Promo are worst than any other VF site – spend 5 on slots get 5 bonus 40x wager.
4) live help are not helpful and don’t seem to understand what you need and customer services are the same.
You can take a chance if you want, you may be lucky with new sign up bonus,,i would recommend that if you do win,withdraw it and dont go back,,,
This sounds like a rant or im a bad loser,,its not the case.

I for one like this site. Only one word of warning: It’s a cash first site i.e it always spends any cash balance first.

This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, just be prepared for it and withdraw whenever you can (I believe the minimum is £5)

As a player on a lower budget, I have still managed to win a little here and a little there, which always makes me happy. Free bingo every hour from 12pm in Disco room, by far my favourite room. This has games ranging from free to 5p per ticket

Regular Facebook competitions and bonus codes too, so keep ’em peeled!

This site is very good for taking your money very fast. Very hard to win on and the slots payouts are not very good. This is just another site good for taking money. Cms say the things over and over very boring your also not allowed to say how you feel or say anything or they jump on you. Save your money.

i joined betfred, and took my money quick sharp, offered me a promo, but when it came to payout wouldn’t do, all because i share a telephone number with my wife, and obviously a ip address – one bonus per household, really? why offer the promo? why take my money first?
closed account under principle
so if you live at the same property, don’t bother joining will take your money before telling you, by the way we wont give you any back, still sending promos, lol yer right im that stupid.

Played this site for about a week,had a few small wins.I only play for entertainment.Then I noticed all my stake money was coming off my cash balance.I had not received the £30 bonus yet. Finally began to use bonus money.had a small win and guess what next stakes were taken from cash balance ergo it is impossible to win on this site as all stakes taken from any cash balance first. P.S When I asked for my games bonus I was informed that I had received it.Not true,But by this time did not really want it.avoid this site.

Don’t bother wasting your money. I joined about 3 weeks ago and must have deposited over 200 pound with not a single sniff of even a share of a line. There are far too many people to even stand a chance. It says you get a welcome bonus when you join, well I’d like to see that as I never did.

The only good thing about this site if the joining up bonus offer. Don’t expect to win though. The Customer Service is terrible. Not many chat games and there is only one chat room which is linked up to all the rooms so when people are stating 1tg etc, you wont know which room they are playing in. There are not many chat games and they always ask for the first player for the answer – not good when your connection is not good, terrible lag. All the chat hosts seem to talk about is voting for them in the CM of the month competition. I will vote them as the worst. Shame you don’t have a facility for voting for the worst hosts. They also love to flaunt their authority by issuing formal warnings to anyone who dare suggest repeat winners or moan a little about their lack of wins.

Hi joined this site last week and had a promotion for free bingo this week if i deposit and spend 10 pound. So i did that and guess wot, no free room and i have it in writing that i gain entry to the room. I went to support about it would not help me so now i am going to take this further because it’s wrongful advertising and will go to the papers about it so not happy. How can they send a promotion and not stick to it. I won’t give this site another penny.

For me Betfred Bingo is a joke. Customer Service don’t care about you if you have any problems and any promos they do you have nothing but trouble with. And make sure you read the small print in all the promos, because they are worded very cleverly – like if you spend £10 on slots you get 4 hours of free bingo on a Sunday! No you don’t – every other game is free so that works out at 2hrs and the winnings go into your bonus. Roomie of the Week promo is a joke. 3 roomies get £50 for being the best roomies and the same 3 win it week after week even though other ppl have been better in chat. If you mention it you get barred. This is a no go zone for me.

Betfred Bingo has gone downhill in my opinion. I left before but rejoined a couple of months ago and there are a couple of things I’ve noticed. Even though I had a couple of wins when I re-joined there haven’t been many since, but that’s the way it goes with gambling. However, I’ve noticed on the free bingo that you can guarantee a couple of players will win everyday.

Some of Support are okay. I had a few problems with this loyalty points thing. You don’t get long to maintain a level before they take it off you and if you question it, your emails get ignored. I’ve just closed my account with them and have to say that the final response showed me I had made the right decision. A lot of these sites adopt a couldn’t care less attitude. They will throw money at you to keep you, but as soon as they see that you will question things, then it’s a different story.

I found the CM’s to be a laugh and most of the players to be great, but the money isn’t very good. I think a lot of people still play, but they don’t play as often, which in my opinion is a good approach.

I joined Betfred BIngo last week and deposited 10 pounds to play on slots. The game ate most of my money and when my balance was down to 3.25 the site blocked me. They said it was because the wanted me to verify my details. I felt robbed and cheated and with only 3.25 left in my account i had no chance of winning my money back. Be warned! I would hate to think this would happen if i had deposited say 50 quid…

I played betfred bingo for a month and there mustn`t be many players as 25%of the pots are won by the same winners. Played the free games 1 day and one player won 5 out of 7 houses not statistically impossible but very VERY unlikely. My advice would be to stay clear bet365 – Paddy Power and Sky Bingo much more balanced although all probs use the same software. One big gripe – bonuses are only used after cash is all spent up.

It’s down to personal choice, but I was rather disappointed to join Betfred Bingo when looking for something different and to find out it was a mirror of the Sky Bingo site.

Seems that many companies are just branding this bingo software tool and the experience is boringly the same across nearly all the sites.

There are so many players in the rooms, that although the prizes are large – the chances of winning are very low.

I am fed up of spending my money on Sky bingo and Betfred and not winning a penny. If you have lots of spare cash and can afford to bet loads on the off chance of a win then this site is for you 😀

Even with my £10 deposit to get their £30 bingo welcome bonus I didn’t see a sniff of a win.
