Virgin Games have had a bit of a journey when it comes to their online bingo product. They started life as a St Minver brand before taking the sensible leap to join Sky, Mecca and others on the Virtue Fusion Network. This has meant a greater range of games, prizes and promotions for their players. Their TV ads even featured a singing Jalapeno pepper that looked like Richard Branson – although Ricardo, as he was known, soon turned into a hunky male model! The next step on their journey was to join the Gamesys group.
Sign up as a new player at Virgin Games, deposit and spend £10 and you can choose to receive either a bingo or slots bonus. Slot players get 30 free slot spins on Double Bubble only whilst it’s £50 of free bingo tickets as the alternative. Wina from these free spins and free tickets come with no wagering requirements and you’re free to withdraw your deposit balance at any time.
Play Slots & Bingo
Bingo used to secondary to the slots and poker options at Virgin Games, but in August 2019 there was a much needed revamp . You will still find the 75 ball room (The Studio) and two 90 ball rooms (The Clubhouse and The Suite). All three rooms are reasonably active and offer decent prizes at reasonable ticket prices. The Suite is exclusive to Virgin Games and tends to be the quietest of the three rooms. These are now joined by network games like Session Bingo, Crystal Maze Bingo, Blox and Superlinks. This puts Virgin Games more on par with Heart and Jackpotjoy, although the latter two still offer more to bingo players.
Slot players have more to sink their vampire teeth into at Virgin Games. There’s a good range of slots from providers like Net Entertainment and Eyecon as well as those produced in-house. Among the titles are Wonderland, Double Bubble, King Kong Cash, Jin’s Bouncing Wilds, Bubbling Falls, Murder On The Orient Express, Tiki Island and Deal Or No Deal. These slots are joined by a Live Casino and poker, the only Gamesys site to offer the game!
Exclusive Poker Tournaments
Promotions are a mix of network offers – they usually occur when a new slot has been launched – and Virgin Games’ exclusives. There’s a poker tournament, 2 for 1 bingo and superlink jackpots in the mix as well. As a wagering player you can also play a free game daily – choose from Secrets Of The Phoenix, Doubly Bubbly and Paper Wins. You can only play one a week but it can win you spins or cash prizes.
Virgin Games has recently had a site makeover which is good news as it means you can now easily access all the games on desktop, tablet and mobile devices. No app is required. The brand does have active social media pages on Twitter and Facebook – these are worth following as occasionally you can win bonuses and find out about other promos.
In many respects, Virgin Games is similar to Star Spins and Jackpotjoy. However, it does have the poker product and live casino – although if you’re looking for bingo then this may not be of relevance. From a bingo perspective it would be nice to see a more active area, but we suspect that Virgin Games journey is more down the slots and casino route.
