Over the last week, there have been some major changes at Ladbrokes Bingo. There’s also a £20k celebration to join in with at Ladbrokes as a result of its new look and feel. Plus, we’ve secured an exclusive interview with one of the famous faces at Bingo All Stars, and the ability to reverse your withdrawals is temporarily withdrawn by the UKGC.

Ladbrokes moves to Electraworks
Up until this week, customers of Ladbrokes Bingo were able to play a plethora of online bingo games, slots, and instant wins on the Playtech software platform. Now, however, that’s all changed because the brand has just moved to Electraworks software. At the same time, the brand’s poker offering has transferred to Party Poker.
In the bingo section, you’ll still find that all your favourite rooms exist (such as The Treehouse, The Attic, and The Living Room), but the playing interface looks rather different. This also means that networked games and promotions have altered. If you’ve been playing online bingo for many years, you might be interested to know that Electraworks was originally known as Cozy Games.
There are now a number of bingo variants to enjoy at Ladbrokes – 90-ball, 80-ball, 75-ball, 30-ball – in rooms like The Garden, The Garage, Level 80 and Strive 75.
Unlike at Coral Bingo which moved earlier this year, Ladbrokes is currently without the Friends Bingo room, which is a bit of a surprise. Let’s hope there is something special in the works for Ladbrokes players to look forward to.
Ladbrokes hosts a £20k Grand Opening
To celebrate its move from Playtech to Electraworks, Ladbrokes Bingo is holding a £20k Grand Opening on Friday 15th and Friday 22nd May 2020 at 8 PM.
On both nights, funded roomies can play cost-free games where no-one goes home empty-handed thanks to the £800 Everyone’s a Winner shared prize pool.
There are also 1 line, 2 line, and full house prizes to win in every game, and the top prize is worth £110.

The UK Gambling Commission advises operators to prevent withdrawal reversals
If you’ve ever got fed up of waiting for a withdrawal request to be processed and felt tempted to hit the ‘reverse’ button, you’ll be pleased to hear that the UK Gambling Commission has just announced that withdrawal reversals are to be blocked on all gambling sites.
The decision has been made as part of the Commission’s ongoing efforts to protect consumers from gambling harm, and with most of us staying at home more due to lockdown, there’s never been a better time for gambling operators to help protect players.
Although the ban on withdrawal reversals appears to be a temporary measure, we’re hopeful that it may be extended indefinitely.
