Hot on the heels of tombola and its new bingo game Bloom, Playtech (which is better known in the online bingo world under its subsidiary name, Virtue Fusion) this week gave us a very pleasant start to spring by also treating us to a brand-new bingo game.
Giddy Up Bingo is only available at one Virtue Fusion bingo site – Betfred – and here we look at some of the highlights of this exciting new game.
What is Giddy Up Bingo?
Giddy Up Bingo is a 50-ball, multi-stake online bingo variant that replaces ball-shaped numbers on a grid with a racetrack filled with numbered horses and jockeys.
You can play it with a minimum stake of 20p and a maximum of £2.
Each game comes with a full house prize, the value of which depends on the number of tickets sold, as well as the amount that you staked.
You can win the full house by being the first person to mark off all 10 numbers on their ticket.
More about the jackpot
The jackpot that is offered is a progressive community jackpot. It’s worth a minimum of £150 and is awarded when a full house is won within 19 calls. 50% goes to the winner and 50% goes to the other players who bought tickets to the winning game.
You can find out more about how to play in our Giddy Up Bingo review.
What are people saying about the game?
Betfred’s Bingo Manager, Joni Keelings, is delighted with his brand’s latest offering and he also says that players have reacted very positively to it since its launch.
He goes on to describe Giddy Up Bingo as offering “versatile gameplay” and being “visually engaging”.
Playtech’s Director of Digital Bingo, Angus Nisbet, says that Playtech wanted to include both fun animations to bring the world of horseracing to life and a choice of stake sizes so that the game can be enjoyed by both “newcomers and more experienced players”.
