We first heard that Marathonbet, the popular sports betting site, was to add bingo back in February 2017. It took until September 2017 for the product to appear on site and even then we have to wait a little longer for the finished product. There seemed to be some problems and bingo is no longer available on the site at the time of checking.
We have always known that Marathonbet was to partner with Microgaming for its bingo offer so that comes as no surprise. In mid-September the site launched a flash version that was not fully functional and did not feature a welcome offer – so at this moment in time we are advising potential players to take a look, but maybe don’t join just yet as you will not be seeing the site at its best.
Ultimately the site will have the best of the Microgaming bingo platform and more than 400 slots and casino games for players to take advantage of.
Dave Mills, Marathonbet Gaming Manager, said of the launch:
UK Gambling Commission & Alderney GCC
“We’re thrilled to be launching a comprehensive Bingo selection for our customers to enjoy. We’ll be offering our dedicated customers two classic variants of 90 and 75 ball games – plus access to a host of progressive jackpot titles with huge prizes. Our Bingo launch marks another step forward in our strategy to increase both brand awareness and footprint in the UK marketplace.”
Jean-Luc Ferriere, Director of Network Games at Microgaming, added:
“Marathonbet have always been an important Quickfire customer. We’re thrilled to be welcoming them to the Microgaming Bingo Network, supporting them in their launch of bingo, and adding a strong brand to our growing customer base.”
We are waiting to see the range of bingo rooms that will be available when the site moves to the HTML platform. While at launch we are likely only to see the standard networked Microgaming rooms we understand that once the site is established and has a satisfactory player base the site will be enhanced with a couple of standalone rooms.
Slots and casino games
All the best of the Microgaming slots and casino portfolio can be found here.
Marathonbet is best known for its sportsbook and the selection of sports available to bet on is exceptional. Football and horseracing feature strongly, but you will also find boxing, cricket, snooker, tenis, ice hockey and much more.
The main site also offers access to Live/Casino/LiveCasino/Constructor/Financials and now Bingo too.
Full details will be added when the full HTML5 version of the site is launched and we can see specific bingo rules.
Minimum withdrawal: £
Processing time: working days
Wagering requirements can differ depending on the games you choose to play. See website T&Cs for further details as requirements may have changed since time of writing.
Winnings from both bingo bonus spending and instants bonus spending will go to the bonus balance until the wagering requirements have been met in full.
Photo id, proof of address and copy of card may be requested.
You can also use the Facebook and Twitter feeds to contact the site. See the Contact Us section on the site for more information.
At the time of writing the Marathonbet Facebook and Twitter accounts are more sportsbook led, but this may change as the bingo audience grows and seeks out their own offers.
The bingo site is not available on mobile at the time of soft launch in September 2017, but as the new HTML5 version is launched in a few weeks time we fully expect it to be integrated with the rest of the Marathonbet mobile gaming offer.
