is the slots section of the larger BGO Casino, offering a full set of games from IGT and Net Entertainment plus a selection of top Microgaming slots on the Quickfire platform. The site is run by Isle of Man-based Mandalay Holdings Ltd, operators of what used to be the hugely-successful XBingo site, which was re-named BGO – but it’s pronounced ‘bee-go’, short for ‘bingo’. Don’t, however, assume that there’s anything remotely bingo-like about BGO Vegas, though. Just as Gala run a very professional casino as a completely separate operation to their bingo sites, BGO run a proper casino and slots site too. Reputation
Having only been in business since 2012 it's hard to get an accurate picture, but you can tell from the unanimously positive reviews of players online that you're dealing with a decent outfit and being in the Isle of Man only adds to their reputation as the handful of UK-facing casinos operating there are the best thought of within their peer group of UK Whitelisted sitesSoftware
There’s no download required; everything works in instant play, and after trying this casino in Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer found it to be unbreakable as well. Generally speaking there’s a friendly yet workmanlike feel about the whole site. You won’t find any glossy pictures of croupiers or other seductive imagery – even the backgrounds here tend to be themed around the slots themselves so it really does get straight down to business. Games
You’ll find all of Net Entertainment’s slots here plus the best of IGT’s collection – along with Quickfire-based slots from Microgaming plus contributions from some other niche providers. There are around 230 in total, accessible via a straight A-Z listing from the main lobby; or you can view the most popular games, the newest slots or the progressive jackpot games with just one click. There’s even a search box as well so you’ll find what you’re looking for very easily.
Whilst you will find other sites that offer these games, BGO Vegas distinguish themselves by running their own set of tournaments. These require no download and are nothing to do with the networked Microgaming events you’ll find at many casinos – but they do run every day and typically pay out £100 with the top 3 players getting £50, £30 and £20 in cash. You can look at which games the tourneys were played in the last few days, with recent events taking place on Net Ent’s Reel Steal, Silent Run, the excellent new South Park slot and also Eyecon’s Sugar Train - a popular arcade-style game, often seen on lightweight sites and presumably legacy of BGO’s bingo-based origins.
With a different tourney on every day and a nice, simple leaderboard structure this is a great place to begin a tourney career rather than jumping headlong into a full-scale Microgaming environment with re-buys, continues, feeder events and other complexities that you won’t need when you start off.

BGO Vegas is a no-nonsense site that takes you straight to the games, but their friendly approach prevents the site from being purely functional: The achievements idea makes you feel right at home, as does the personalised approach to the tournament leaderboard that lets you post up avatars of yourself. These are just a couple of ideas that illustrate BGO’s approach – which overall works to great effect.
