Betfair is much more than a sportsbook and exchange. It’s also established itself as a big player in the world of online bingo by enticing fans with its excellent promos!

Every Wednesday and Sunday this May, Betfair Bingo players can take advantage of some huge, guaranteed daily jackpots, drawing from a total prize pool of £225,000.


Each promotional period – that’s a two-hour window twice a week – there are two jackpots guaranteed to be won. 

Jackpots are worth £12,500 and are split evenly between the winner and other players who purchased tickets to the winning game. 

This means that you only have to enter the winning game to walk away with a cash prize! The winner will receive £6,250, with all other players receiving a share proportional to the number of tickets they purchased.

The winning ticket will normally be the one that wins the full house prize in 33 calls or less in the Big Wheel Bingo Room, or 43 calls or less in the Helter Skelter Bingo Room.

How to take part

You’ve got to be in it to win it. Here’s how:

  1. Log in or register with Betfair (those who are new to the site should see below for an explanation of how to claim the current welcome bonus).
  2. Check the time and date. Between 8pm and 10pm on a Wednesday, head to the Big Wheel Bingo Room. Or, between the same hours on a Sunday, find the Helter Skelter Bingo Room.
  3. Buy your tickets and wait for a game to begin. On both days a new game will start every five minutes.
  4. Play as you normally would, and cross your fingers for a full house. When the prize is won, either by yourself or another player, you’ll be notified and the promotion will come to an end.
  5. If you don’t get lucky, or even if you do, you can come back the following Wednesday or Sunday and try again!

Terms and conditions

If you’re the holder of a verified Betfair account, based in the UK and aged 18 or over, you’re eligible to take part. Duplicate accounts are likely to be banned, and winnings will be withheld.

The promo is running every Wednesday and Sunday from 1 May to 29 May and will be available between 8pm and 10pm on those days.

The promo ends when the jackpot is won, but you’ll be free to carry on playing in the two bingo rooms. Prizes are awarded as cash, and there are no wagering requirements. 

As this promo is running across the Virtue Fusion network, players on other sites may win the jackpots, or a share of the prize if they bought tickets in the winning bingo room.

Betfair is a titanic force in the British gambling industry, despite only having been around since the turn of the century. Its services span sports betting, online poker, live casino betting, exchange betting, and bingo. Bingo account holders have access to the full gamut of Betfair services.

There are more than 15 bingo rooms to choose from here, including free, IP-based and themed options. The majority are 90-ball and 75-ball games, but there’s likely to be something for everyone.

Big Wheel Bingo 

The first of the two bingo rooms included in Betfair’s May Jackpots promo is the Big Wheel Bingo Room. This is a classic 90-ball game with a ticket price of just 15p. Prizes are awarded for one line, two lines, and full house winners. 

Helter Skelter Bingo

Helter Skelter is another of Betfair’s regular bingo rooms, but this one comes in a 75-ball format. Tickets are available for 25p each, and there are five separate prizes each game, one for each completed horizontal line on your ticket. 

Other Betfair Promos

Betfair offers a range of bingo promotions which should appeal to existing players as well as new ones. 

The welcome bonus will vary from time to time, but at the moment players can claim a £30 Bingo Bonus, £10 Slots Bonus + 100 Free Spins. To receive this, players need to register then deposit and stake £10 on any bingo tickets. The bingo bonus comes with just 1x wagering and free spins are completely wager-free.

When it comes to recurring promos for existing Betfair bingo players, there are free and 1p bingo tickets with decent cash prizes. There’s also a whole system of loyalty levels for players to ascend, which has the potential to generate some decent bonuses. Regular players can also expect free scratch cards, special monthly games with boosted prize pools, and a VIP programme.
