Playtech Teams Up with Betfred to Release Giddy Up Bingo
- March 22, 2022 By Riley Wilson -
Leading online gaming developer Playtech has partnered up with Betfred. Together, they will launch a horse racing-themed Bingo variant – Giddy Up Bingo.
Coming hot on the heels of last week’s Cheltenham Festival, Giddy Up Bingo is a 50-ball, multi-stake variant designed to simulate an actual horse race. The online bingo game will be available exclusively for Betfred players.
While playing Giddy Up Bingo, players have the option to pick one of four horses. Each horse represents a different ticket price with proportionally increasing prizes depending on the stake. The game itself displays numbered horses and jockeys instead of traditional bingo balls. Interestingly, players will see horses galloping off-screen as the numbers are called. The game also features one progressive community jackpot.
The development team at Playtech has done a fantastic job with Giddy Up Bingo. Thanks to the deal with Betfred, players get to exclusively enjoy the new Bingo variant. The in-game animation creates visual appeal. With the choice of four stakes, the game can attract both newcomers and more experienced players.
Playtech’s Angus Nisbet said: “With horse racing season in full swing, it’s no surprise to see such a strong early reaction to Giddy Up Bingo. But, we’re confident this is a variant players will enjoy all year round.
Betfred’s Joni Keelings added: “We’re very proud to offer Giddy Up Bingo as an exclusive, and there has been a highly positive player reaction to its launch. Giddy Up Bingo is both visually engaging and offers versatile gameplay – exactly the elements we look for in an exclusive variant. To be able to work closely with Playtech to deliver something unique for our players adds great value to our partnership, and we’re delighted with the results.”
