Over the last few months we have seen many site closures across many different platforms. Over the last couple of weeks it has been the predominantly sites on the Dragonfish network that have shut their virtual doors for the last time. However, we have also seen Cashcade brands cease to trade. All of these products were powered by the 888 / Cassava software and the latest casualty is Bingola, a JackpotJoy Group brand!
Bingola launched in September 2014 and joined the likes of Costa Bingo in the portfolio of brands that offered a great selection of free games to the masses as well as a no deposit required bonus at launch.
Why Is Bingola Closing?
If we had to hazard a guess as to why Bingola is closing, we’d say that it’s to do with the design of the site and the compliance request from the Gambling Commission. Whilst many of the sites from this company have a very childlike quality about the design, the fairground design was probably considered to have quite the appeal to under 18’s.
The email received from the JackpotJoy group simply said that Valentine’s Day would be the day on which the official announcement was to be made and that 28th February would be the day that the site will close.
A visit to the page on 14th February saw the official announcement which said
Dear Roomie, we’re very sorry to inform you, but as of 28th February 2018, Bingola will be closing.
