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 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 but bingo wasn’t always part of the offering. Today though it’s an established part of the Jackpotjoy and Heart Bingo set-up and bingo is available alongside slots and live casino games.
Virgin Games Welcome Bonus
Sign up as a new player at Virgin Games, login, 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. Wins from these free spins and free tickets are paid in cash. This means that you’re free to withdraw your deposit balance at any time. This is the same welcome offer across all Gamesys products (except Megaways Casino which doesn’t have bingo).
Virgin Bingo Rooms
Bingo used to be 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 Bingo and Superlinks. This puts Virgin Games more on par with Heart and Jackpotjoy, although the latter two still offer more to bingo players.
Virgin Games Slots
Slot players have plenty 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 by Gamesys themselves. 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! If you don’t mind a bit of Live Casino then do check out Mega Ball which is a bingo meets keno style game show.
Virgin Games Promotions
Promotions at Virgin Games tend to be a mix of network offers – they usually occur when a new slot has been launched – and Virgin Games’ exclusives. At time of writing you could win spins, box bonanza games and V*Points in various promotions. Win a game of bingo and you also have access to the free Bingo Palace games that occur daily and weekly. Finally all players who have wagered at least £10 get to play a free game daily – choose from Secrets Of The Phoenix, Daily Rainbos, Tiki’s Catch Of The Day, Doubly Bubbly and Paper Wins. You can only play one a week but it does give you a chance of winning free slot spins or cash prizes.
Penny’s Thoughts On Virgin Games
Virgin Games had a site makeover a year or ago 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 Jackpotjoy, Monopoly Casino, Smooth Bingo and others in this group. 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. Still it is worth a visit for the player promotions and daily free game.
