Online bingo has finally been unleashed on the Garden State’s casino playing public courtesy of gaming provider Gamesys. The UK-based company behind some of the leading online casino platforms in the world, including VirginCasino.com and TropicanaCasino.com NJ, has just announced the release of a new 90-ball bingo product.
Following more than five years of experience offering online bingo in the UK and Europe, Gamesys is dipping its proverbial toe into the waters of the bingo world with a simple platform on its New Jersey online casino sites Virgin Casino and Tropicana Online Casino.
Game offerings will be simple for now
Taking the most common variant of the traditional game, 90-ball bingo, the new Gamesys portal will be available from 10am until 11pm every day and players can ante-up at three levels: free, $1 or $5.
Although the leading operators in Europe offer numerous versions of the game, including 75-ball bingo, 50-ball bingo, Joker Bingo, speed bingo and jackpot bingo, Virgin and Tropicana will start by offering the simplest variant.
Naturally, as the platform grows and more NJ players test out the software, both Virgin and Tropicana will have scope to increase their offerings thanks to Gamesys’ wealth of experience in the market.
In a similar vein, Virgin and Tropicana will only be offering their 90-ball platform available via laptop and desktop devices for the time being. Although the sites do offer some mobile casino games in New Jersey, the decision has been made to take things slowly and offer the game as a desktop product before venturing in the mobile market.
However, in order to sweeten the deal for new players, both Virgin and Tropicana will be giving away $90,000 in bonus cash every month.
NJ online casinos offering chance to win a share of $90k
Each new player that registers an account with either platform will be given a free strip of tickets for any of the daily games which run between 10 am and 11 pm. In line with traditional games of bingo, players can win money by filling a line (five numbers), two lines and then a full house.
On top of standard payouts, cash money players (not those using their free ticket) have the ability to win the super jackpot. Operating on a progressive basis, the top prize is gifted to any player that manages to make a full house in 51 balls or less. However, it doesn’t stop there as everyone in winning jackpot game will be given a smaller prize courtesy of the community jackpot which is shared amount all active players.
The final caveat attached to the VirginCasino.com and TropicanaCasino.com bingo platforms is that all bonuses or cash won using a free ticket must be released by wagering real cash. Players must make an initial deposit of at least $10 and then stake at the amount of the bonus in order to release it.
Once they do this, the money is free to be withdrawn or gambled with at will on any of the two sites’ casino games.
