Blue Square Bingo Bites The Dust 0

A recent acquisition by Betfair means that one of the many bingo sites on the Internet today has now closed. Blue Square Bingo never really took off in the way other Virtue Fusion products have and the chances are you weren’t even aware that Blue Square offered bingo.

The closure comes just days after Betfair launched their own bingo product, four years after rumours had broken about the brand launching a bingo product.

An email was sent to patrons of Blue Square on Thursday morning that said:

Dear [user],
