Spin And Win Bingo £5 Free Offer

Friday, Jul. 13th 2012 7:02 AM

Spin and Win Bingo is one of a handful of new bingo sites that has sprung up on the Internet over the last couple of weeks but what makes this site different from the others is that it uses proprietary software to power their games. As we see Gala Bingo move from a proprietary offering to the Virtue Fusion brand it’s nice to see brands like Spin and Win Bingo something different to the gaming table.

In addition to offering unique software, Spin and Win Bingo also offer new players £5 free, no deposit required! This means that you can try their software out without making a deposit. As a standalone brand the player numbers for bingo are quite small at the moment so if your looking for an increased chance of winning, this site is definitely worth a try.

Spin Win Bingo To Close

Tuesday, Jul. 10th 2012 6:56 AM

Spin Win Bingo is one of many brands on the Internet today that is part of the large Dragonfish network of sites but we received an email recently informing us that this site is to close it’s virtual doors on 16th July. No reason was given in the email as to the reason behind the closure but we do wonder if it is anything to do with the recent launch of Spin AND Win Bingo, a totally different brand.

It could be that Daub Ltd, the company behind Spin And Win Bingo have offered a substantial amount of cash to the owner or Spin Win Bingo. The owner of the brand is Jonathan Preminger, a former manager at However it could simply be that as 888, the owners of Daub Ltd after purchasing the company a couple of years ago, simply think that the two brand names are too similar.

What’s In a Bingo Username?

Wednesday, Jul. 4th 2012 7:55 AM

Often when we spend time playing at any number of the online bingo sites available we come across some weird and wonderful usernames in the chat rooms and this got us thinking about how people choose the name they are referred to as in the chat rooms and correspondence from the brands.

For the most part, when I register with a site I will use their brand name and Betty as my username but simply because I register with so many. This formula means that I don’t have a hundred different usernames to recall. For example, at Zingo Bingo I am ZingoBetty.

Bingo Chat Hosts – Know Your Product!

Monday, Jul. 2nd 2012 7:35 AM

The bingo industry online can be very confusing for a novice player with an abundance of sites to choose from and often when you first register to play the person greeting you is the chat host. Their job is to provide assistance to the players and make your gaming experience a happy one. These people, people like you or I, are usually working remotely in the comfort of their own home and are supposedly fully conversant with the bingo software and product at which they are working.

However, on more than one occasion this has proven not to be the case and this made us ask the question, what is expected of a bingo chat host?

Bingo Room Changes For G2 Gtech Brands

Friday, Jun. 22nd 2012 7:32 AM

There are several different online bingo brands that are powered by the G2 Gtech software and part of the St Minver network and all have recently seen changes to their bingo rooms! Some rooms have been closed, others have had ticket prices changed and 80 ball has become a permanent fixture at brands like Vernons Bingo.

Whilst the sites on G2 Gtech/St Minver have added a new room, two have now been closed. You will no longer find Bingo Espresso and Bingo Smoothie available at any of the brands. However, ticket prices have been slashed to cater for players on a lower bingo budget.

Internet Authority Assessing .bingo As A gTLD

Friday, Jun. 15th 2012 7:05 AM

When you think of any online bingo brand you think .com or right? Well things could be set to change in the future as ICANN has just released a complete list of 1930 generic top-level domains (in layman’s terms, the word that appears after the ‘.’ in any web address or otherwise known as gTLD’s) and in amongst them is .bingo. Rumour has it that big names like William Hill and Ladbrokes are even after purchasing their own brand gTLD’s – .williamhill and .ladbrokes – so we could see a change in how we search and visit our bingo sites in the future.

The cost for having a branded gTLD is something in the region of $185,000 with an annual renewal fee of $25,000 but big name brands like Foxy, William Hill, Ladbrokes and many others would easily be able to cover these charges. The .bingo gTLD would know doubt have a price tag similar to that of the .com, and .net.

It’s Chico Time At BingoCams

Monday, Jun. 11th 2012 7:47 AM

On 21st June 2012 Chico is set to be in the chat rooms at Bingo Cams and what’s impressive is that, unlike at other sites where anyone could be typing and pretending to be a celeb, Chico will be there in all his glory on web cam! Chico was catapulted to fame on the X Factor in 2005 and had a number one hit in 2006 with his chart debut “It’s Chico Time” and now you will have the chance to chat with the chappy live at the site…

Wait, there is more! BingoCams are also offering you and a friend the chance to meet and greet Welsh born Chico Slimani. However it’s a slightly disappointing competition to win based on the top 20 depositors for the month so far.
