Game Village has been on proprietary software since its launch and it’s been around a while. When it was sold to Angel Crest Holdings in 2013, it looked like it had found a new home, after all the brand has totally unique software and should be really appealing. However, due to upcoming changes in regulation and licensing, small sites are concerned about UK licensing, and that has been cited as the reason that Game Village has now moved software to Cozy Games.
Cozy Games offer several networks and within them are sites such as Gone Bingo, 88 Bingo and Aunty Acid Bingo but the new Game Village doesn’t belong to any of the networks, it only shares the software. It’s actually intended to be the flagship site at the newly launched Lucky Duck Network.
Now we’d usually be really excited about a new bingo network, after all we’re always lamenting the lack of choice, but it could have been anywhere but Cozy Games. The software is really dismal and all the best welcome offers in the world don’t make up for it!
The one appeal that the Cozy Games sites do have, the often-offered £15 free no-deposit bonus isn’t even available here, and as it’s the first site in a new network, there aren’t that many players online.
In their defence there are deposit bonuses on your first three deposits, and the quiet rooms may be due to players still migrating over from the old software. It’s certainly obvious around site that they are attempting to offer something different to other Cozy Games sites and the wagering requirements and withdrawal limits are fairly low, and fair.
We’re not really fans of this software but if you’re a fan of Game Village there’s no harm in trying it out.
