It’s been on the cards for some time now but there are details being leaked that hold some weight: Betfair could very well be entering the bingo market. There has been a lot of speculation that this would take place, which is now being backed up by claims that the sports betting exchange has struck a deal with Playtech, the owners of the popular bingo software used by many industry leaders, Virtue Fusion.
If Betfair did enter the market then it would really shake things up as they have substantial funds available to them for the purpose of marketing, which would allow them to cement their position as one of the big boys relatively quickly. What does this mean for you, the player? Massive bonuses! To put it into context, the other big sports bookmakers that have begun offering their customers Bingo are companies like SkyBet and Ladbrokes. SkyBet have only recently retracted their free bingo without deposit offer and replaced it with a 400% bonus, while Ladbrokes offer new players a 500% bonus. You can expect something similar from Betfair, should the rumours be true.
As you may have noticed, the last week or so has been filled with promotional offers and huge jackpots focused on Halloween. As those offers begin to expire and their respective winners announced, we will be sure to relay that information here.
Gala has £20,000 slot winner
Details are sparse right now but it appears that GalaBingo has had another large win on their slot machines. Following on from the £1.6m won by a lady from Yorkshire last month, another winner appears to have pocketed more than £20,000! There are currently no details of which slot or where the winnings will end up but these things usually come out after a few days as the operators like to brag about their winners — quite rightly!
