Virtue fusion is one of the biggest game developers for bingo in the industry at the minute. They are a part of the PlayTech company who have been killing it in the online casino sector, so you know they come from a huge pedigree of game developers.
As you would expect from one of the biggest game developers in the bingo sector, they are able to offer up one of the biggest ranges of games that we have seen. Below is a list of the some of their game types that they offer across the board.
- 90 Ball – 90 ball bingo is one of the favourites at Virtue and with it, obviously there are 90 balls in play. The game consists of 9 rows per games, with 3 columns and 20 squares. You need to cover 1 line, 2 lines or a full house to win.
- 75 ball – This game works with 75 balls in the game. Instead of having to clear lines or the full card, you need to cover certain patterns that are predetermined on your prior to the start of the game. Once you have made your pattern you simply shout ‘House’ and you have won the game.
- 80 ball – The 80 ball games include just that, 80 balls, but the layout is different than most games. You have a box with 16 numbers in each. The numbers will be grouped in each row from 1-20, 21-40, 41-60 and 61-80. You need to fill a row up to win the game and then the whole box to win overall.
- 50 ball – The 50 ball game gives you all 50 numbers in a box and then set out in rows of 10 numbers (1-10, 11-20 and so on). The numbers are random hen vertical and the winner will be the person to fill a horizontal line up.
- 40 ball – The 40 ball game is pretty simple in that you get a box of 40 numbers and you need to clear that box in the order the numbers that are assigned first to win. It’s often associated with jackpot games such as Rainbow Riches.
Virtue Fusion powered sites are also a little unusual in that you can play multiple games at the same time by launching new rooms whilst playing (you can play up to three different games at any one time). You’ll need to switch between the rooms if you want to participate in the chat, but you can see all three games on screen at the same time.
Special Games & Exclusives
You may think that the bingo industry is pretty one dimensional given the limitations the games have. But, you’d be wrong as so many developers have come up with cunning ways in which to make them more exciting and also tweak the more traditional styles for each game.
As a result of this, it’s allowed the developers a bit of creative freedom and in turn, it’s allowed some big companies to get involved with this sector. The casino industry is famed for its branded games from the likes of Marvel and DC Comics, but the bingo industry is starting to catch up. Below we’ve listed some of the more special games that you can find from some of the bigger bingo halls.
Rainbow Riches Bingo
The Rainbow Riches is one of the most popular games on any platform at the minute, manly because its average ticket is just 8p with an average payout of over £36 per game, making it one of the more lucrative games. You are going to be playing the 40-ball variant for this game, which is pretty rare but they’ve been able to add bonus rounds and few tweaks, such as magic numbers, to make it standout from the crowds.
Coconut Island has been another successful game on the circuit for a number of years now. This 50-ball variant is one of the biggest paying bingo games that you can play, but it’s best feature has to be their bonus games where you get to play a coconut shy in order to reveal your prize. You are also going to be able to play the Hammock game where you get a Buy One Get One Free ticket just for turning up.
The Chase is one of the most popular shows on TV at the minute to see it end up as one of the most popular bingo games isn’t all that surprising.

The bonus rounds will even let you go head to head with one of the infamous chasers to try and earn as much money as possible.
