Recently, the sale of the Buckingham Bingo brand (purchased by Club3000 and Castle bingo) had left a great many members of the bingo industry a little confused. Certainly, many considered the land-based Buckingham Bingo halls to constitute a more than sound investment; however, many also had reservations regarding the economic potential of the online Bingo websites — namely, Bucky and BOGOF — owned by the Buckingham Bingo franchise.
Today, then, may perhaps stir even more bemusement; the aforementioned Buckingham Bingo Online Bingo sites Bucky and BOGOF have been purchased by Betfred.com
Betfred.com is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in the sports betting industry. Indeed, Betfred.com has always boasted an extremely assured marketing and development team. However, in this case, Betfred.com appears to be acting against the grain of most analysts’ view of Bucky and BOGOF: indeed, many analysts have previously suggested that the two websites do not represent economically viable companies.
Those who visit Bucky and BOGOF will still be able to do so, for both sites will be kept running. Moreover, both sites may be expected to soon see more visitors as Betfred — a franchise who can count the hugely popular World Snooker Championships among its roster of sponsored events — are set to aim invest time and money in investing in the websites in an attempt to boost their online profile and increase their visibility in the highly competitive online bingo market.
