Betfair Bingo Mobile
Launched in 2013, Betfair Bingo Mobile is one of the newer sites to join the Virtue Fusion network. Originally a sports betting site, Betfair has expanded its expertise into the bingo, casino and poker markets.
The most exciting reason to join however is that if you spend £5 on bingo tickets, you will get an extra £40 bonus. The bonus itself is split into two, giving you a £15 bingo bonus and a £25 games bonus, so you will have plenty of funds to check out everything that is on offer at this brilliant site.
Unlike a lot of other sites, Betfair seriously promotes their own mobile app hard. They have a mobile section listed straight off the main navigation on the site, giving you details on how to get started playing on your phone or tablet.
There are 3 options to choose from, you can either scan the QR code, ask to get sent details by text message by entering in your phone number or alternatively, going directly to the mobile site mbingo.betfair.com. All 3 options end up giving you the same thing – a superb mobile gaming experience that a lot of other sites can’t compete with!
On top of the dedicated bingo app, the mobile page also features downloads for the live casino app, free arcade app, poker app, casino app and games exchange app. In short, they have lots of apps for all kinds of different types of games. However, for the purpose of this review, we will just give you details of the bingo app.
Bingo and Slots Games
One mega-benefit of being part of the Virtue Fusion network is that you not only get to use industry leading Playtech software, which has a fabulous array of both bingo and slots games, but you also get access to ‘Bingo Linx’ games, which are games where the prize pots are shared between all the other sites on the network. Now, this may not sound that great now, but the network contains industry leading sites like Winner, Gala and Mecca. As such, the prize pots become legendary, dishing out prizes you will not find at most other bingo sites.
Aside from the gigantic jackpots on offer, you will find a selection of 90 and 75 ball games. There are other variations to play as well, including speed games and brand names like Deal or No Deal Bingo. Plus with prices starting from just 1p each, your £30 bonus will give you a lot of value for money.
When it comes to slots games, as previously stated, you get access to the whole Playtech/Virtue Fusion platform. This means there are literally hundreds of different titles to choose from, including many player favourites such as Fluffy Favourites, Britain’s Got Talent and Bounty Of The Beanstalk (Cool name, I know).
Other Important Info
One important detail you should know about is that Betfair is one of the few bingo sites out there that now accepts PayPal payments. They also take a wide range of debit and credit cards, but for that added layer of security, I really do recommend using PayPal.
The site itself is licensed and regulated by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, this is one of the more trusted regulators in the industry and is responsible for regulating top industry sites like Bgo and Lucky Pants.

There are a few areas where I think Betfair Bingo really excels. Obviously, the mobile department is up there with the best in the world, but the standalone bingo site that you play on your laptop or desktop also has a great gaming experience. The game choices are also great, plus the jackpots on offer are some of the most lucrative out there.
All things considered, Betfair is definitely a class act. They are a bingo site that can be trusted and are operated by a company that definitely knows what it's doing. Honestly, the sites great value for money and most definitely worth a small punt on at least.
