There is good news for players at bet365 as the operator has announced that it is boosting its video bingo offering with titles from the supplier Neko Games.
The partnership means that desktop and mobile players at bet365 will gain access to original titles such as Don Bingote, 1524: Golden Question, a video bingo adventure that has become a huge hit in Spain. Players will also be able to enjoy branded titles such as Immortal Romance Video Bingo and Thunderstruck II Video Bingo, both of which are based upon popular Microgaming slots.
Neko Games seeks to merge the world of online slots and traditional bingo with its titles. As such, they incorporate elements of classic bingo gameplay together with the type of bonus features with which video slot players will be familiar.
The co-founder of Neko Games, Sebastián Perrier, said that the company is “delighted” to have launched its video bingo portfolio with “such as distinguished and reputable global operator”, describing it as a “big milestone”.
Bruno Gonçalves, Neko Games’ commercial director, has explained that the partnership will increase the developer’s exposure in several regulated markets:
“Seeing our products on the bet365 platform just before the World Cup is incredibly exciting for us. We can’t wait to see how our games are received by players in so many important jurisdictions.”
The latest partnership is further evidence of bet365’s commitment to bringing its players games from the world’s leading developers, no matter where they are based.
Earlier this year, Neko Games was shortlisted for the hugely prestigious EGR Bingo Supplier of the Year 2022 award. At the time, Sebastian Perrier said:
“We are incredibly honored to be considered for this award. We launched our first game in 2020, so we are thrilled to receive this type of recognition just two years into our journey and just ahead of the launch of our first branded game, Immortal Romance Video Bingo.”
Bruno Goncalves also celebrated the achievement:
“To be shortlisted for this award, alongside some of the biggest names in the industry, is an incredible achievement and shows that people are taking notice of our efforts to redefine the video bingo experience. What’s most exciting is that the best is yet to come.”
While Neko Games didn’t win the award, it is still a remarkable achievement for such a young developer. (The eventual winner was Pragmatic Play, another developer whose games are available at bet365 Bingo).
Neko Games’ most recent release was Thunderstruck II Video Bingo, a game based on one of the most popular online slots of all time.
The game allows players to purchase up to four 5×3 tickets for each round. Its visuals are taken straight from the original slot, and Thor can be seen standing next to the action keeping an eye on things. The game offers payouts of up to 10,000 times the bet, and everyone can enjoy it as the bets start at just £0.01 and go as high as £40.
The gameplay is very straightforward. It starts with an initial bingo draw, and the aim is to complete patterns on the tickets. When all the balls have been drawn, if you are close to completing a high-value pattern, then you may be offered the chance to purchase additional balls. To make things more exciting, there are also wild balls, and these can be extremely valuable.
In addition to the regular winning patterns, there are also bonus patterns. Completing one of these triggers a bonus feature similar to those found in the original slot.
The first pattern triggers the Asgard Chambers feature. This is a multi-level picking game. As you progress through the levels, the prizes become more valuable, and at the top level, it is possible to win up to 1,400 times your bet.
The second pattern triggers the Hall of Picks feature. This is another picking game, and it offers payouts of up to 900 times the bet.
Finally, if you have all four tickets enabled, then you have the chance to trigger the Great Hall of Jackpots feature. The feature is triggered by filling Thor’s Hammer. When purchasing extra balls, some of them may have coins hidden inside, and these are collected by the hammer, gradually filling it. In the feature, you will have to reveal characters until you find three that match, and you then win the corresponding jackpot. There are four jackpots up for grabs, and the largest is worth 10,000 times the bet.
bet365 is already known as one of the best online bingo destinations, and it is clear that the operator is working tirelessly to ensure that it remains deserving of this reputation. Every few weeks, it seems that new deals are reached to provide players with an even broader selection of games, whether it is from well-known suppliers or smaller niche studios.
The site also ensures that there are always promotions on offer, huge jackpots to play for, and a thriving community spirit complete with chat games, thematic rooms, free bingo, and special prizes. Based upon this, don’t be surprised if you read about bet365 signing even more partnerships in the near future.
