Did you know most bingo platforms are part of a much bigger network?

It is a common misconception, when you signup on a bingo site, you play only against some players on that platform. But it's not true!  If you are playing bingo for a while, you must have come across the word - 'Bingo Network'.

What Are Online Bingo Networks?

Many people don't know this!

It is not your favourite bingo website that runs the game, but it is the bingo network that pulls all the strings behind. The bingo networks are the ones that developed and built the game. They supplied it to various bingo sites to run it.

Different bingo websites all connect mutually to form a larger pool of players. When each player purchases a ticket, it automatically adds to the pot leading to huge jackpot prizes.

If you are interested, take a peek at the in-depth guide on various bingo networks in the UK. They pool together a large number of members across various UK bingo sites for some extraordinary jackpot prizes.

Some bingo networks are large, with hundreds of players in each online bingo room like Virtue Fusion Bingo Network and Dragonfish Bingo Network. They give away jackpot offers of thousands of pounds and provide brilliant sociable experiences.

Here Are Some of the Names of Biggest Bingo Networks

●      Virtue Fusion

It's affiliated with the software provider Playtech. It has bingo sites like Mecca Bingo, William Hill Bingo, Bet365 Bingo, Gala Bingo, etc.

●      Gamesys

The network tailors each bingo site to look and feel different. It has bingo sites like Jackpot Joy, Heart Bingo, Virgin Games, etc.

●      Dragonfish

This bingo network is part of the expansive 888 holdings Ltd. It has over 150 bingo sites. Some of the popular bingo sites are 888Ladies, Wink Bingo, Two Fat Ladies, etc.

●      Microgaming

They provide top-notch bingo games with appealing graphics and visual effects. Some of its bingo sites are 32Red Bingo, Dotty Bingo, Butlers Bingo, etc.

How Do Bingo Networks Work?

No law states that bingo sites need to run on a network. Some run independently too. Companies with time, money, or inclination to build a bingo site from scratch go independent. E.g. Mr Q Bingo, BingoCams, mFortune Bingo, etc.

On the other hand, those with limited resources hire a bingo network to take care of the functionality of their bingo website.

● The bingo network creates and develops various bingo websites.

● They provide software support to bingo sitesthat join their network.

● They manage and regulate progressive jackpots. They collect a small percentage of contribution from the deposits of each player on the bingo sites of their network to build the massive pot.

Some bingo networks manage both the bingo network and own bingo websites like Dragonfish, Jumpman Gaming, etc.


Playing bingo via bingo networks gives you access to progressive jackpots and more people to chat with while you play. But it also reduces your chances of winning due to competition from hundreds of players. It is best to read the reviews carefully before registering with a bingo site on an online bingo network.
