Barbados Bingo Joins 15 Network

Tuesday, Apr. 24th 2018 7:18 AM

We’ve already reported on the changes that have been happening at sites over the 15 Network but what we haven’t yet done is introduce our readers to the site that first brought these amendments to our attention, Barbados Bingo. This brand joined the network on 9th April 2018, quite a few months after it’s name had been heard on the bingo drums.

We’re not entirely sure whether the old brands (Elf, Dove and Showreel Bingo) got their makeover ahead of the launch of Barbados Bingo, or if the new site was the first to unveil the new software upgrade. What we do know is that whilst the new software is far more responsive and the overall aesthetics of the brands boasting it are far improved, there are also a few issues.

bgo Boss Verne Troyer Dies Age 49

Verne Troyer

R.I.P
Verne Troyer

Verne Troyer was known for many different roles but probably his most famous was as Mini-Me in the second and third Austin Powers films. However, for online gamblers, especially casino players, he was known as the Boss at bgo. It’s with a very heavy heart that we write this piece because news has just broken that he has passed away.

News broke at about 9pm this evening following a post on his official Facebook page and whilst bgo have yet to react to his passing, we are sure that we will see some changes on site over the next couple of days to show respect for Verne Troyer and his family and friends.

Major Changes On 15 Network

Thursday, Apr. 12th 2018 7:13 AM

15 Network

All Change At
The 15 Network

A short while ago we received an email requesting that we stop promoting a number of brands powered by the Jumpman Gaming software. The brands included some on the 15 Network, sites like Elf Bingo, Showreel Bingo and Dove Bingo. The email informed us of a re-design of all the sites and we’ve been eagerly awaiting its arrival.

We have to wait no longer, the new look is available now at the sites and first impressions are good. The changes are more than just a lick of virtual paint across the home page. There’s a change in the overall aesthetics, the software, promotions and even two new payment options have been added but there is a downside too.

Rehab Bingo Re-Branded Because Of ASA

Thursday, Mar. 15th 2018 7:11 AM

Advertising Standards Authority

ASA Ban
Rehab Bingo

Rehab Bingo first launched into the world of online bingo back in 2005 as part of the Rehab Group. Since launch, a percentage of the money spent at the site has been donated regularly to the Rehab Group charity. The charity provides health and social care services in Ireland.

As we reported yesterday, Rehab Bingo is no more as it has been rebranded as Rosy Bingo but it was only after we published the news that we became aware of the reason for the rebrand. Some 13 years after launch, the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) have ruled that the word ‘rehab’ and ‘rehabbingo’ suggest that online bingo was a form of rehab that could be used to alleviate personal problems!

Rehab Rebrands To Rosy Bingo

Rosy Bingo

Rosy Bingo Is
The New Rehab

Our excitement was piqued recently when we heard of yet another new bingo brand that had launched, a brand called Rosy Bingo. Immediately we headed to the site to see what it had to offer to the discerning online bingo player, only to be disappointed to find that the site isn’t actually a new site but a re-brand of an already established name, Rehab Bingo.

What was even more disappointing was that the site had done very little to make itself to look even remotely different from its previous incarnation. The only difference is a change in logo, which you’d expect with the new Rosy Bingo name, and a new welcome offer. The latter being less than was offered by Rehab.

Is Gumball Bingo Worth A Chew?

Gumball Bingo
Launching Soon

A brand new site is set to be launching very soon on the Cozy Games product and it is called Gumball Bingo. We’re not sure which of the two networks, if either, that the site will be opening on but we do know that it is owned by 8 Ball Games. This company has an already impressive portfolio of sites on the Cozy software.

This will be the first new brand that has launched on the Cozy Games product since Electraworks (Ltd) acquired the software. We’re excited to see what it has to offer but suspect it will be much the same as the others from 8 Ball Games on this software platform.

More Changes Afoot As CMA Announce Enforcement Action!

Tuesday, Mar. 6th 2018 7:09 AM

CMA

Enforcement Action
Coming From CMA

For many years now we have always questioned some of the rules around withdrawals from various bingo sites; you’ll find many examples in multiple articles on our site. For a long time we believed the Cozy Games product to be the worse. The reasons were many (high wagering requirements, minimum withdrawal amount of £50 and of course, the previous low cap on withdrawals).

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) seem to be catching up with the issues that we have been raising for many a year. There is an investigation underway around the restrictions put in the way of players withdrawing their money from online gambling accounts.

WSN Drop Bingo Tickets From Bonus Wheel

Thursday, Mar. 1st 2018 7:07 AM

Wheel Of Slots Network

WSN Change
Bonus Wheel

The Wheel Of Slots Network (WSN) never really got its foot in the bingo door in the same way that the 15 Network did but it’s clear that Jumpman Gaming as a bingo entity is not fairing too well with players. Step into the bingo rooms (and we did on the evening of 19th February) and you’ll find very few players in the rooms. On the 15 Network at 8.40pm there were 11 in the rooms and across on WSN, a couple more at 13.

It comes as no surprise then to find that the networks, and ultimately the software platform, is sustained by the slots players. This explains why both networks have recently removed the ‘bingo tickets’ section from their bonus wheels.
