New Look For Online Bingo

New Look For
Online Bingo

As regular readers of our pages will know, there have been some quite significant changes in the world of online bingo recently. We’ve seen a change in the bonus structure for many sites and more recently, alterations to the design and feel of many to ensure they hold no appeal to children. This was something that was requested by the UK Gambling Commission in a letter to all operators which can be read here. In it they instruct operators to remove any ad ‘likely to appeal particularly to people aged 17 or younger (‘under 18’)’ and, ‘generally available to view (‘freely accessible’).’

Further in the letter it states ‘The use of particular colours, cartoon and comic book images, animals, child- and youth-orientated references’. This looks to have had quite an impact on the aesthetics of online bingo!

Social Responsibility Failures Cost Butlers Bingo

Tuesday, Dec. 12th 2017 7:26 AM

Over the last few months we have seen some quite large fines levied against a number of gambling operators for failures around the social responsibility policies. Gala were fined £2.3 million and 888 a massive £7.8 million. Broadway Gaming (the company responsible for Butlers Bingo and a number of other online bingo sites) appear to have got off quite likely with a fine of £100,000 for their shortcomings.

The Gambling Commission (UKGC) chose to investigate the company after an Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) ruling that was published back in June 2016. There had been one complaint about an onsite advert that focused on the welcome offer, an offer that was ‘Deposit £10, play with £25’. The complainant felt the ad was misleading because the significant terms around wagering were not clear. The ASA agreed and upheld the complaint.

Santa’s New Helpers At Wink Bingo

Saturday, Dec. 9th 2017 7:23 AM

Santa’s got new helpers at Wink Bingo apparently as the site asks players to get involved with their Chrimbo Countdown Challenge. Their Santa is going to send you three challenges when you opt-in to the promotion daily and each that you receive will earn you rewards.

Unlocking the challenges at Wink Bingo is really easy. You will receive your first challenge when you login for the first time on any day of the promotion. When you have completed that challenge, the next will be unlocked until you have completed all of the challenges. There will be new ones every day until Christmas Day so you have plenty of time to be one of Santa’s New Helpers.

Jackpot Changes At Dragonfish Bingo Sites

Thursday, Dec. 7th 2017 7:39 AM

For quite some time the Dragonfish network appeared to stagnate. Where other sites were launching new and interesting games, making changes around various areas, the biggest network online looked to be doing very little to keep up with the Joneses’. Earlier in the year we saw a flurry of activity around the sites on the network though as changes were made to the wagering and withdrawal rules.

The momentum of change will continue into the New Year because come 1st January, sites like Flowerpot Bingo (to name just one on the network) are set to see a dramatic shake-up of the jackpot schedule. Luckily we’ve managed to secure details of the movers and shakers involved.

Win A Car From Butlers Bingo

Tuesday, Dec. 5th 2017 7:37 AM

When it comes to promotional offers there are some brands that really stand out from the crowd. Butlers Bingo is not a name that we would usually associate with ‘stand out’ offers but recently they upped the ante! Last week we saw the site launch a promotion that put the site well above some of the other big names from the world of online bingo.

The Win A Car promo got underway at the start of the month at Butlers and continues until 1st January 2018. That is unless someone manages to win the car before that date! This promotion isn’t one that sees you need to earn draw entries to be in with a chance of winning the car. For this offer, it’s all about calling bingo in a predetermined number of calls.

Goldy Bingo Is Missing The Bling

Friday, Dec. 1st 2017 7:20 AM

It’s been a while since we had news of new bingo site launching but a few days ago, Goldy Bingo joined the throng. At first glance, the site looks to offer all the bling that you might expect from a site with this name and then you realise, it’s just another brand on the Cozy Games software.

Whilst Goldy Bingo ,and other sites on the same software, do boast an impressive choice of bingo games, they are all much the same as each other with little to separate one brand from another. With the loss of the no deposit required cash, is there enough about this site to make it worth registering and depositing with?

Cozy Games Drop
No Deposit Bonus

Yesterday all the Cozy Games sites dropped their no deposit required welcome bonuses and introduced a different welcome package for all new players signing up for their first account with any of the brands. In place of the old deal comes something we see at multiple sites already, the chance to access free games in a Newbie Bingo room.

Currently we are working hard to update all of our pages to show the new welcome package at Cozy Games site and would ask that our readers take into consideration exactly how many sites that are online powered by this software, and ultimately, how many changes we have to make. Read on for the details of the amended welcome offer…
