Paddy Power is a leading online gambling company that has stakes in bingo, sports betting, football betting, poker, casino, lotteries and even financial trading. With such a large portfolio Paddy Power has grown into one of the worlds leading companies in the gaming industry.
Paddy Power Bingo is one of the leading bingo operators and even though they entered the market recently, have won the Bullet Business Best Newcomer award for 2008. They use industry specialist software from Virtue Fusion to run their games, which ensures rock solid gameplay, good graphics, reliability and fairness. The look and feel is Virtue Fusions customised standard and the company have spent a lot of time doing usability testing, resulting in a very easy to use game that we like to play. The bingo balls are called out in the proper fashion with the lingo for 90 ball bingo and with a British accent, which adds an atmosphere to the game.
Other games include slots, scratchcards, videopoker, top trumps, casino and novelty games that adds a real strength to their offering. We found so many amusing mini-games that we were kept entertained for hours. There are also some TV gameshow ports of Deal or No Deal and Goldenballs, allowing you to bet and play just as you can in the actual shows. I tried Deal or No Deal and I found it excellent to try and beat the banker... with strength of mind you can win. There are lots of other cool novelty games, one of which is Chain Reactors, which is very similar to Tetris for money.
There are 5 main bingo rooms offering 90, 80 and 75 ball bingo. There are promotional offers for each day of the week, for 7 days a week. There are several £3000 guaranteed jackpots which will be paid out to one winner each week. Like with the other big bingo operators they can afford to do this, which is reassuring.
Overall, Paddy Power Bingo is a provider you can trust with their industry standard software and selection of high quality mini-games. They are a sizable company with a good reputation that offer 247 support by UK & Ireland freephone or email response. We recommend Paddy Power Bingo if reputation, reliability and support is important to you.
