Different Types Of Bingo Software

There are dozens of types of bingo software, not all of them the same. In the following post I will be talking about the pros and cons of various types of bingo software, plus giving you recommendations of the best places to play.

What Is The Bingo Software?

Bingo Software is the underlying platform that powers any individual bingo site.

Some of the most popular software providers include the likes of Virtue Fusion, Dragonfish and Microgaming. Each has its advantages, which we will take a look at now.

Dragonfish Bingo

Dragonfish power the largest amount of bingo sites compared to any other bingo provider. In real terms, I am not sure exactly how many, but at the time of writing there are well over 100 Dragonfish powered sites.

New Dragonfish bingo sites launch every month, in fact you can find a complete listing here. Infamously they power top brands such as Costa Bingo, Sing Bingo and even the likes of City Bingo. In fact, if you think of a bingo site in the UK, there is a 50/50 chance whether it’s powered by Dragonfish.

In short they are the most reputable provider out there.

Some pros of Dragonfish software include their slots game selection. You will find leading games such as Fluffy Favourites and Cleopatra to choose from. Plus they don’t have a bad selection of casino games including the likes of Blackjack and Roulette. For more information you can check out their official website here.

Virtue Fusion

The other leading bingo software provider includes Virtue Fusion. Virtue Fusion power industry leading sites such as Bgo, William Hill, Sky, Winner and many more.

Where Dragonfish excel is in the sheer number of sites provided for, Virtue Fusion provide games for the largest bingo sites out there. Even the big land based bingo providers Mecca Bingo and Gala Bingo use Virtue Fusion for their bingo software.

The great thing about these sites is that they tend to have linked prize pools, meaning you will find some gignatic ‘Bingo Linx’ games, and when it comes to slots, progressive jackpot games with life changing sums up for grabs.

Cozy Games

Finally, another new and upcoming software provider is Cozy Games. Specialising in no deposit bingo sites, most of the Cozy Games bingo sites feature no deposit offers,typically giving away up to £20 free.

They also have an interesting selection of slots, partnering up with Microgaming to bring some top notch games to the platform.

Cozy sites also typically have larger bonuses, so if you fancy stretching your credits, Cozy Games powered bingo sites will be the ones for you. Look out for leading brands such as Buttercup Bingo, Comfy Bingo and Mummies Bingo.

Bingo Deposit Methods

When you are deciding where to play online, the type of deposit methods that are accepted are actually crucial when it comes to making an informed decision and deciding upon a trustworthy company.

Credit Cards

The most common form of deposit method is the credit card, followed by the debit card. Maybe it’s today’s debt ridden society, but depositing through a card is the most accepted method and to be honest, I ¬†would be sceptical of any site that doesn’t allow you to play using a Mastercard or Visa card.


Sites that allow you to deposit using PayPal are typically the most secure way of playing online bingo. The reason for this is that a PayPal deposit is protected. The bingo site won’t get access to your bank or card details, but will know who you are and that you have the funds to make a deposit.

This is great to protect your identity and your bank details. One thing to watch out for though is fraudsters and people who try and operate phishing scandals. Make sure you only put your details in through the official PayPal website.


Ukash is a newer and incredibly accepted payment method at various online bingo sites. Players can fund their UKash card through cash deposits at various petrol stations, off licenses and supermarkets in the UK. This is great because it allows people who wouldn’t normally be able to get access to a credit or debit card, a way to make a deposit online.


To conclude, make sure the bingo site that you are looking to play at takes a wide variety of payment methods. Personally we recommend sites that accept PayPal because it gives you an extra layer of security between you and the bingo site.
