Shipleys BingoShipleys online Bingo website has suddenly disappeared off the radar after closing to have a change of software.  The move by Shipleys online bingo from St Minver to Virtue Fusion has come as a bit of a surprise as there had been no press releases regarding either the closure or the new online bingo software. Of course Shipleys Bingo is not the only online bingo site to jump ship recently, Virgin Bingo themselves has also recently changed to Virtue Fusion.  In fact so many of the online Bingo sites are opting for Virtue Fusion it does appear to pour some oil on the rumour that the online version of the National Bingo game will be running only on Virtue Fusion sites. If this were the case it would make complete sense why so many of the online bingo sites are changing.

Shipleys online bingo is part of Shipleys Leisure Group which has a whole stack of online gaming sites including Shipleys Casino, Shipleys Bet and Shipleys poker site which trades as Celeb Poker, as well as high street bingo halls, some rather exciting tourist attractions and amusement arcades.  One of the Shipleys online bingo site family members is BJ's Bingo, it would appear that BJ's has already transferred to Virtue Fusion and this online bingo site is up and running and looking pretty good - in fact for all intents and purposes appears to be Shipleys Bingo itself!  It is a strange situation that when you log into BJ's you are directed to Shipleys Bingo and it is possible to play online bingo, however if you go to Shipleys Bingo there is a message that states 'coming soon'. It is all clear as mud at the moment.

If you would like to join BJ's / Shipleys online bingo site then currently there is a 100% cash match on first deposit up to a maximum of £250. However don't expect any great shakes in the chat department, as the chat room was like a ghost ship. Clearly this is an area that will be up and running once the Shipleys Bingo site re-launches. It would appear then on the surface that Shipleys Bingo and BJ's are one and the same, well for the time being anyway.  Watch this space for further updates on this strange situation.
