Electraworks is a bingo software provider owned by GVC, who also own Ladbrokes, Coral, Gala and Foxy Bingo. So the move doesn't come as a huge surprise, especially considering Foxy and Coral have already made the switch in recent times.
It makes sense that if you own your own bingo platform, you would want all your bingo sites using it.
What does this mean for players?
Well a software change is always a massive deal for players. Literally every game available on the old Ladbrokes Bingo is now gone, and not all will have been replaced with a like-for-like bingo room. The Electraworks platform has 90, 80, 75 and 30 ball games, but it does not have anything like the variety of bingo variants available on Playtech, such as the ever-popular Deal or No Deal Bingo.
The bingo rooms that are available on the new look Ladbrokes are all networked with the other GVC brands, Foxy and Coral. At first glance it would appear the majority of rooms are networked, with only a 'Party Room' unique to Ladbrokes which is being used for a couple of special relaunch events.
However, one room I did notice available now at Ladbrokes Bingo is 'Cashout Bingo', an interesting new game that previously was only available at Foxy Bingo.
