After many years of waiting, Betfair Bingo finally opened their virtual doors in March 2013. The Betfair brand opted to launch their bingo offering using the Virtue Fusion/Playtech software and as part of the Virtue Fusion network. This was a wise decision as not only did it give them access to a wide range of games that have been honed to perfection through years in the industry, but also a ready made pool of players.
Betfair Bingo is incorporated into the main Betfair site and can be accessed via the navigation bar at the top of the page. The bingo home page is very busy with scrolling banners advertising their welcome offers and latest promotions and a screen full of images linking directly to a selection of their side games. It is very colourful and easy to find your way around but could get a tad annoying if you stay on there for too long.
Registering at Betfair Bingo is a simple procedure so you should be up and running in a matter of minutes. Once your account is active though, not only will you have access to the bingo site but also all of the other sub-sections including Casino, Live Casino, Poker, Exchange Games, Arcade, Slots and Mobile Gaming. Being part of the Betfair family means you will have a number of virtual wallets for each section and you will need to transfer funds between these wallets before you can start playing.
Head into the lobby for the first time and you will need to choose a username, this cannot be the same as the one you used when you registered and will need to be different to any you have used before on other Virtue Fusion sites. If you have played at another site using the same software everything will feel very familiar as it essentially the same lobby but with a different skin and colour scheme laid over the top. From here you can find all of the important information you need such a ticket prices, number of players in the room and most importantly the prize money.
As expected all of the rooms are well designed with generous sections dedicated to displaying your cards and enjoying a chat with your bingo buddies. The Chat Hosts are friendly and they make sure everything runs smoothly and any queries you might have are dealt with efficiently. The Virtue Fusion software incorporates a selection of mini games and you can play these without them interfering with your bingo fun.
Betfair Bingo is your average networked site, it looks good, offers a range of games and a selection of promotions but nothing more then any of the other sites using the same software. Betfair Bingo's saving grace however is all of the other Betfair branded sites, giving you access to a wealth of exciting games and gambling options regardless of whether you want to place a bet on the horses or try you luck on the Roulette wheel.

Betfair Bingo offers 75 and 90 ball bingo as well as a large number of instant games, casino games, jackpot slots, slots and number games. The site is home to themed games like Britain's Got Talent Bingo and The Bingo Games as well as the Community Slot games and Joker Jackpot.
