One of the oldest Virtue Fusion Bingo rooms is being put out to pasture, as per the article title, Ruby Bingo is shutting down on 31 January 2016.
The news was announced by William Hill who took over Ruby Bingo a few years back. The Ruby Bingo site is one that the team at Eyesdown Bingo knows well.
Ruby Bingo in its first incarnation was a download bingo room. Can you imagine that? In these days of instant logging in after account creation, Ruby Bingo had to be downloaded.
That did of course change once William Hill took over the site. The danger was always that the site would be overshadowed by the larger William Hill Bingo site.
With the Point of Consumption Tax recently brought in by the UK Government many gambling companies have reviewed their strategy in regards to the number of bingo rooms they run.
Ultimately we believe that Ruby Bingo has fallen victim to the Point of Consumption Tax. The cost of running the bingo site and keeping players happy in an ultra-competitive market is growing.
That has ultimately signalled the end of the road for Ruby Bingo.
Ruby Bingo players will likely be invited across to the mother bingo room, by that we do of course refer to William Hill Bingo.
It is a sad day for this once fantastic bingo site, progress though does decide things in all walks of life, perhaps we will witness a reincarnation of Ruby Bingo at some stage in the future.
For now, if you have an account and a balance at Ruby Bingo, be sure to withdraw or contact support on what to do. Today is the last day that Ruby Bingo will be taking play.
Fortunately for all of us Bingo Lovers, there are still a lot of Virtue Fusion Bingo rooms to choose from. Visit our Best Virtue Fusion Bingo Sites Here.
