New Bingo Sites 2021

It's already February 2021 and there has been no brand new bingo sites to report... yet!

New Bingo Sites 2020

Despite the chaos caused by the global pandemic in 2020, the number of new site launches was not too bad. Tau Gaming were the most prolific company, launching a total of 4 new sites in 2020 on the Dragonfish platform including their latest brand: Bingo Barmy.

Another Dragonfish launch that was quite interesting was Bingo All Stars. They teamed up with a group of celebs which included Rustie Lee, Linda Lusardi and Christopher Biggins, and each Friday evening at least one celeb joins the bingo via video livestream. It's not the most incredible site but at least they're trying something a bit different.

However, the best new bingo site to open this year has to be PlayOJO Bingo, without a doubt. This site was already a trailblazer in the casino world thanks to it's no-wagering "Fair Casino" marketing, and in August 2020 it partnered with Pragmatic Play to bring "Fair Bingo" to the market too. They even launched their own exclusive bingo game - The Masked Singer UK Bingo.

New Bingo Sites 2019

2019 was a year where it was mainly Dragonfish and Jumpman Gaming brands coming to market. Nothing as exciting as a Playtech or Standalone software launch, just the usual white-label sites that keep being churned out. The nicest looking of these were probably the Tau brands; Tickety Bingo and Bounce Bingo.

If you happened to try Zeus Bingo when it first opened, well it is very different now having switched software to Pragmatic Play Bingo in February 2020, so it may be worth another look. Still too hard to actually find the bingo games once you've joined, in my opinion.

Lazerlight Bingo was one of the more interesting new site openings of 2019 simply because of their unique 'Lazerlight Bonus Game' feature that it uses to decide how much bonus you get when you make your first deposit. So instead of a spin-the-wheel or just giving you a set bonus amount, here you play a mini-game that has a small element of skill to it.

New Bingo Sites 2018

2018 was probably one of the best years for new bingo site launches because for the first time in a long time we had a new Playtech / Virtuefusion bingo site in the form of Buzz Bingo.

Buzz Bingo was formed when all the bingo halls owned by Gala Bingo were sold. They continued trading as Gala for a while, but in 2018 they rebranded and Buzz was born, complete with their new bingo website. It's since gone on to be one of my favourite bingo sites, so I highly recommend.

Another interesting launch in 2018 was Mr Q who entered the market having developed their own unique bingo software. The bingo games there are some of the most modern looking, but it still struggles to attract enough concurrent players to give the bingo rooms mass appeal. However, their slots content is pretty good I have to admit.

Newly Redesigned & Relaunched Bingo Sites

Every now and then, existing bingo sites try to freshen themselves up with a major site makeover, redesign or even switch of software. When these changes occur, they are often new in everything but the name, and so I think are worthy of being including on this page.

So whenever a big relaunch or redesign takes place, I'll let you know all about it right here and you can go check them out.

The most high-profile relaunch I've seen recently has to be the new Mirror Bingo website, which has been around since 2014 but went into a bit of a decline on the Playtech network. However, in 2020 they became part of the Jumpman network which saw the site rebooted with a new design and new bingo software courtesy of Pragmatic Play.

Mecca Bingo have also undergone a big redesign of their site which I first spotted in November 2020. At that time both the old and new versions of the site were available, so I did a video comparing the two (see: Mecca gets a Makeover).

However, in February 2021 I noticed they're still split-testing the new design, which means some players may still get the older version! All the games and stuff remains the same so it's not a drastic difference between the two.

Mecca Bingo's owners, The Rank Group, have also been busy relaunching a few bingo sites following their recent acquisition of Daub Alderney. Both Kitty Bingo and Lucky Pants Bingo have now moved over to the Playtech. As part of the move, some of Mecca's previously exclusive games, such as Britain's Got Talent Bingo, are now available on these two brands.

New Bingo Games Recently Launched

There have been some really interesting new bingo games developed in recent months, which often put a unique spin on a traditional bingo game.

The most high-profile new game has to be The Masked Singer UK Bingo which is an exclusive to the new bingo site, PlayOJO. It was launched in December to coincide with the TV show, and in the game players have to pick a masked singer at the start of each round. If your singer matches the one chosen by the eventual full house winner, you win a free ticket to the next game.

The TV show Masked Singer has now finished so it will be interesting to see how long the game remains popular with the PlayOJO players.

Also available at PlayOJO (but not exclusive to it) is the fast-paced Bingo Blast game. This has recently been re-skinned with a snowball and wintery theme and has been renamed as 'Snowball Blast'. This change is purely cosmetic and doesn't add any new gameplay, but it's still nice to see Pragmatic mixing things up. They've told us the snow will eventually thaw out in the Spring and normal Bingo Blast design will return.

Another new bingo variant that took me by surprise was the introduction of Fluffy Favourites Bingo to Entain-owned sites such as LadbrokesCoral and Foxy Bingo. Surprising because it was already an exclusive game over on the Playtech network, but it seems that exclusivity has now run out, with Eyecon licensing their Fluffy Faves brand to a completely new, 36 ball bingo game.

Finally, if you haven't come across the new Hexabingo game yet, I really suggest you try it out if you can. It's relatively unknown because it's an exclusive to the Relax Gaming bingo sites, but I was super-impressed with how they have managed to pull off an exciting bingo format that works with just three players. It's crazy!

FAQ

What is the best new online bingo site?

This is a very subjective question. For me the best new sites to launch in recent years have been Buzz Bingo (2018) and PlayOJO Bingo (2020). Both have launched with no wagering and invested in unique games exclusive to them, which puts them above all the other new brands I've seen recently.

Which new bingo sites have free bonus?

If you're talking about a no deposit bonus, or you want to play without first making a deposit, then you're going to struggle finding a site like that. No deposit deals are rare these days, especially for new sites, but you can still find one or two out there. Check our No Deposit Bingo page for the latest offers.

Are there any new virtue fusion bingo sites?

Playtech (virtue fusion) are one of the most exclusive bingo networks, and tend to only work with the biggest brands such as Mecca and Gala. It isn't often a new brand comes to market on their software. New sites tend to choose one of the cheaper, more accessible providers such as Dragonfish and Pragmatic Play.

Are new bingo sites trustworthy?

All the sites we list on HowAbout Bingo are licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. All have to abide by pretty strict rules regarding protection of player funds, responsible gambling and marketing to players - rules which we too have to abide by. That's why you'll always see key terms & conditions alongside any offer or promotion.

Are new bingo sites secure?

All bingo operators are required to have secure websites and processes for storing your personal and financial information. It is the same for any website in the UK that collects personal details as part of a membership. I've never known any major data breach or security issue at any bingo operator in the UK.

What payment options are there at new bingo sites?

Debit card is the default deposit option for most bingo sites and many accept other forms of payment such as Paypal and Paysafecard. However, usually your first deposit does have to be a debit card due to anti-money laundering rules. Credit cards are no longer accepted at any bingo site.

How many online bingo sites are there?

There are a few hundred online bingo sites in the UK market, but most have been established several years ago when market conditions made it really cheap and easy to launch a bingo site. Nowadays, increased taxation and stricter marketing rules have made it harder for new sites and so not many come to market as they did in the past. On average, there are maybe 1 or 2 new site launches every 2 to 3 months.

Are there any free bingo games at new sites?

Yes, although some new sites may choose not to have any free bingo at all. In general, new sites that offer free games will usually have some kind of restriction in place such as they're only available for a limited time, or available only to players who have deposited within X number of days.

What are the advantages of playing at a new bingo site?

One of the biggest advantages of joining a new site is that sometimes they'll have a standalone room that isn't on the wider network. This means if you're one of the first players to join the site, your chances of winning are greater (as there aren't many players). If that room ever offers a special event, such as guaranteed prize money, those first events are usually very profitable as not many players know about them yet.

So what else is new?

There is always something new going on in online bingo, whether that be a new bingo game launch or a new bingo promotion. I'm doing my best to try and cover as many as I can, in as much detail as I can, so my visitors are always the most informed they can be.

For the most interesting games and promos I will usually write a feature to explain things in more detail, along with a video if I can. Check out the latest news posts below. For more you can always visit the bingo news page.
