Play Foxy Bingo and Be One Of The Elite

There is certainly no doubt about the fact that Foxy Bingo leads the way in the UK. They are one of the most popular online bingo sites, and have one of the largest communities online in the country. As Foxy is proud of their reputation, they know how to treats VIP’s, as well as all new players. Playing at Foxy is an excellent choice although its not one of the main bingo sites that accept PayPal. For a whole list of them look here.

Because they have been around for a while, and so have VIP members, it is obvious that these members would be treated as being elite. This is the reason why the Foxy Elite Club is the place to be. These members receive personal attention from Club Manager – Joshua Hughes and his team.

Basically an Elite member can be assured of invites to VIP events, the best bonuses, special real cash prizes, luxurious gifts, exclusive access to tournaments and promotions, and very secret surprises that will only be revealed when a player accepts membership to the club. As well as all of these perks and more; special direct phone and email access is available around the clock.

It is for all of these reasons and more that anyone playing at Foxy Bingo needs to make it into the Elite Club. Make that the aim of your game, and keep your eyes peeled for one of the hottest invites in town.

For example there have been some really big Club Elite winners, such as member “Wolfchaz” who landed a prize of £18,000 while playing White Wizard – no wonder it is her favourite game. What she enjoys most about being an Elite member is that the bonuses keep her in bingo bucks, and Josh is always around to lend a hand. It makes her feel special and can make you feel special too.

LMA’s new gaming platform – Dragonfish

LMA chose Dragonfish for its new platform

LMA Gaming is one of the many interested parties who wish to offer online bingo products to UK and European players. They have chosen Dragonsfish, an Award-winning B2B brand, and in due course another very happy customer will be provided with a comprehensive bingo product. The Dragonfish bingo network is one of the fastest growing on the WWW, with something like 60 or 70 (perhaps more) different bingo brands who are happy with their service.

The point of first launching on a network is to strengthen the LMA brand, then if and when sufficient liquidity is achieved, transfer to standalone takes place. One of the more successful standalone brands that has transferred from Dragonfish is Moon Bingo. LMA already has a few gaming brands that have proved successful – www.nettiarpa.com, www.netticasino.com, www.crazyscratch.com, and www.slotsandgames.com.

Dragonfish Network customers benefit from a wide range of services; basically turnkey operations which include: 24/7 network management, instant liquidity, website building and hosting, chat hosting, customised design, CRM, ePayments, Fraud and Risk Management, and player support. They also offer a wide choice of Quickplay instant which includes; branded slots such as X Factor, virtual sport, table games, Hi Lo and scratchies.

Basically this bingo network is a market leader, with a proven track record, that keeps partner firms topped up with regular promotions and good jackpot prizes. These types of offers are vitally necessary to help build successful online bingo brands, in particular in the British marketplace, where competition is tough.

LMA’s transition into online bingo is a natural growth progression from its existing online brands and Dragonfish is looking forward to getting them calling the bingo numbers, and winning in this industry. With the funds and resources that LMA has to invest in this partnership, we don’t anticipate it will be long until they are able to stand alone.

Biggest Ever Bingo Jackpot Promotion From Playtech

While we know that Playtech is a great online casino software brand, they also offer software for all kinds of gambling-type games, and that might be something that not everyone knows. There is sports-betting, mobile gaming, the iPoker network and one of Britain’s all-time-favourite games – online bingo on this brand. Like most of the leading online gambling software providers, Playtech also offers a pool of attractive promotions, one of the most attractive in recent times has been offered on their bingo network. This delivered £2.5 million in prize money and makes it the biggest that we have seen yet.

Some of the biggest PayPal bingo brands in Britain are fortunate enough to be on the Playtech network. This makes members of these websites, also some of the most fortunate bingo and slots players in Britain. With huge wads of cash like this on offer, websites such as William Hill, bet365, Ladbrokes, Paddy Power Bingo, and quite a few more, gave away prizes which ranged from £25 to £25,000 through ten progressive jackpot slot games during a fun-filled two-week cycle.

By the end of the promotion 40,000 individual winners across sites such as William Hill and so on, had taken home a share of this £2.5 million worth of loot. But why are we telling you about this in retrospect? Well…if you don’t know about what is given away at online bingo sites in the UK, then you can’t win can you? It is such an easy game to play, and made even easier online, with all kinds of convenient ways to pay such as using PayPal and Ukash vouchers. Now British bingo players don’t even need a bank account to play online, and everyone has an equal chance of cashing in on the huge prizes.

Online Bingo In Britain May Be Bottoming Out

Online bingo has been available for anyone with a will to play; for around about 15years now in the UK. In the early days when we used dial-up, it was certainly not as popular, but since the rise, and rise of high-speed broadband rollout, its growth has been exponential. For years experts have been unable to say whether the online bingo business would ever bottom out, but now it seems as though its growth is becoming less exponential, in fact popularity may even be dropping.

Recent results from one of the bigger British bingo portals has revealed, that trends data sees a decrease in wagering taking place. I think what we have to also remember here, is that the summer season has started and it is always more tempting to go out of doors while the weather is good. While we know that today mobile bingo can be played, it is much more tempting to sit in the sun and soak up some rays, than it is even to play bingo on a mobile phone.

These particular results have said that a drop of 6.1% has been seen in online bingo wagering; from the quarter – January – March – so, the sun can’t have played a huge role. The figures are however quite interesting if you think that British Bingo players spent an estimated £255,626,20 on bingo tickets online from 1st April to 30th June 2012. Who says there is no big money in bingo?

This slight drop in ticket purchases is actually really a good trend for players of the game, because the one thing it will (or should) mean, is bigger and better promotions. It is a well-known fact that when business slacks off – operators are compelled to make things more attractive for players.

Gala Bingo moves to Virtue Fusion

Gala Bingo Moves to Virtue Fusion Software

Gala Bingo has undergone changes to the software of its games at its online bingo site. Gala Bingo was set to change to Virtue Fusion software after having been run exclusively for years on propriety software on Tuesday.

A twenty four hour lockdown was displayed across the site, keeping players out of the accounts and denying all the ability to play online bingo during this period, until the new software was firmly installed.

There are rumors abound as to why Gala Bingo has made the switch, and one possible rumor touted earlier in the month was that a National Bingo game could be introduced into the United Kingdom before the end of the year. This National Bingo game would only be available to bingo sites running Virtue Fusion software. Whether or not there is any truth to the rumors remains to be seen, but it would put Gala Bingo in a unique position to be a part of any National Bingo that arises in the near future now that they have changed to Virtue Fusion.

There are other reasons for the switch at Gala Bingo though. The online bingo site has addressed some of those reasons in a bulletin which describes the benefits of running the new software over the older one. Such changes likely to be seen at the online bingo site include more jackpot games than ever before, live bingo, an updated loyalty reward scheme, a larger welcome bonus and a new design and look to the Gala Bingo site.

To help promote the new look online bingo site, Gala Bingo have hired in the face of Peter Andre. The world wide singing celebrity is a massive figure in his adopted country of Britain and is sure to get players flocking over to the site in a major publicity coup for Gala Bingo.

Leaders Of The Pack – Bingocams Proves Their Worth

While Bingocams can no longer be called a brand new site, they are certainly still one of the most innovative brands who have been seriously proving their worth. This completely unique concept is an online bingo site which basically offers webcam bingo. We have seen this model is popular at online casinos where live dealers spin the wheel or deal the cards at the roulette and blackjack tables. This website follows hot on their heels with their own version of everyone’s favourite game and It takes both PayPal And Ukash for playing bingo.

Fortunately cutting-edge technology is available today to avail online fans of the game to play after connecting their webcams to thousands of co-members at the site. This offers a virtual, but very realistic bingo hall experience; all from the comfort of their own home. Members like to check out fellow-roomies, and also get to see their live-win moments. There are even prizes given away for recording live-win moments. Chat hosts get seen going about their daily work, and generally everyone has a really good time.

One of the nice things about playing bingo online is that it is such a social game, so, when players get dressed up for special events; this is obviously encouraged. However, if you want to play bingo in bed with your curlers in, you simply switch off the webcam, or leave it on to give your chat-room friends a bit of a laugh. Get creative and be funny at this stunning website, remember there is more than one way to win. And just simply having a good time, can be some of the most fun a player can have.

Bingocams, although not a PayPal bingo like the sites we talk about here, as we said is unique, there is no other bingo brand quite like them, and in recent months, a whole host of exciting games and promotions have been introduced. This leaves members spoilt for choice; they even offer celebrity chat.

£100,000 Was At Stake – One Lucky Lady Won

Sue Fox, must have thought it was her birthday when the 55 year old online bingo fan pipped more than 15,500 players to the winning post, and won the £100 000 jackpot game which takes place every year on CostaBingo.com. This best of breed British bingo brand runs the same competition at the same time every year, to celebrate their own birthday. It is true what they say about UK sites, when it’s time for a birthday, the players get all of the gifts, and what a gift this was.

Sue who is from Hook in Hampshire, was not even there to win, but her daughter plays at the same site and obviously couldn’t wait to share the good news with her mum. See what happens is, you don’t have to be there to win, tickets play automatically. Even after her daughter told her, Sue – a mother of three, and Grandmother to six – still did not believe that she had won. Eventually a Chat Host from Costa Bingo, one of UK’s best bingo sites,  had to convince her that she was the winner.

When the BIG Birthday game played – coincidentally – Sue was out celebrating the birthday of her 10 year old grandson – he wanted a cuddle and the autograph of his gran, as he reckoned that he wanted to cuddle a rich person. When the good news finally sank in, as you can probably imagine, she did not get a lot of sleep that night. Currently however, Sue is making all kinds of plans to spend this mahoosive windfall.

A new car is on top of her bucket list, but her children are also trying to get her to be sensible and not splurge out all of the money. Sue has won before on Costa Bingo, and has only been playing there for a year.
