All No Deposit Bonuses Dropped From Cozy Games

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…

Is The 15 Networks Wheel Really That Mega?

Monday, Oct. 16th 2017 4:12 AM

15 Network

15 Network
Mega Wheel

The 15 Network has been around a while now, and until recently, if you registered for an account at any of their sites, not only would you earn yourself an impressive 200% first deposit bonus, but you would also be invited to take a spin on their bonus wheel for the chance to win up to an extra £2,500 and everyone was guaranteed to be a winner.

Their first deposit bonus has now been abolished entirely and the Bonus Wheel has now been replaced with a Mega Wheel, so we thought we should look and see just how Mega it is. Sadly, we can’t say that we are impressed, this new wheel is a shadow of its former self and the prizes up for grabs are not very good at all.

Cozy Games Make Improvements

Improvements

We’re not backwards in coming forward about our dislike of the Cozy Games software and offering. Over the years there have been a number of issues that we have had with the product, namely high minimum withdrawals and the difficulty in meeting these. There have been occasions when we have been quite complimentary about Cozy Games, the introduction of the Wizard of Bingo game being one time, but on the whole these are very few and far between.

Today we are going to be praising Cozy Games so if you want to take a seat and recover from the shock, now is the time to do so. There are a number of reasons for the slight change of heart and these include changes to the minimum deposit amount, the minimum withdrawal amount AND the introduction of NetEnt games to the suite of titles for slots.

A Bonus Change From Bingorella

Thursday, Oct. 5th 2017 7:53 AM

Over the last couple of months we seem to have covered news of many a bonus change at various sites and total, it’s news of another. This time it is the turn of Bingorella, a site that was previously known as Winneroo Bingo.

When we received notification of the change to the welcome package from Bingorella, we expected to see the removal of the £5 free play offer to new players. This is not the case, this part of the package remains the same which is surprising considering the tax implications for the operator of the site. However, we have seen a substantial drop in the cash match offer extended to those making their first deposit with this site. But all is not as it first seems….

Candylicious At Dragonfish Sites

Tuesday, Oct. 3rd 2017 7:04 AM

When it comes to bingo gaming innovation, the 888 software isn’t really up in the ranks of market leader. In fact, many would consider it safe to say that they have been lagging behind the likes of Tombola and Virtue Fusion for quite some time. The last new game launched on the 888 platform was the 52-5 card game but this was originally restricted to just a handful of sites powered by the software.

A couple of weeks ago the Dragonfish network of sites launched another version of this 52-5 game, one called Candylicious, and at first we were really excited at the prospect of a new addition to the bingo game landscape. Then we played the game, and that excitement quickly waned!

Advertorials Underfire From ASA

Tuesday, Sep. 26th 2017 7:13 AM

Advertising Standards Authority

Advertorials
Upset ASA

If you haven’t already figured it you, here at Playing Bingo we advertise online bingo sites. We do so by providing our readers details of promotions and various updates on software, new bingo sites and general news from the world of online gaming. In all the years we have been doing this, we have done it with honesty, integrity and first and foremost as players ourselves. Some other advertisers are far less scrupulous as the Advertising Standards Authority recently revealed.

All advertisers are bound by BCAP and CAP codes and face a virtual slap on the wrists if they break the rules. It would seem that some pay no regard to the codes, or have any morals in promoting online gambling.

Will You Be Grinning With Smile Bingo?

Saturday, Sep. 23rd 2017 7:44 AM

After news of a couple of site closures over the last month, it’s good to be able to talk about a new bingo site. The latest addition to the Wheel of Slots Network is called Smile Bingo and it opened earlier this month. The site is owned by the same people who are responsible for a number of brands on the Jumpman Gaming software, so we are expecting good things.

Smile Bingo is still in its infancy at the moment but like other sites from this company, we expect that there will be a selection of exclusive promotions being rolled out over the next couple of months. At this point in time, there’s just the standard network offering.

Bingo Elf On The Shelf

Bingo Elf
On The Shelf

If you are a fan of social media then you will no doubt have seen the array of meme’s that have parodied the original Elf on the Shelf. Back in 2015 a creepy Christmas themed toy went viral and this year, the new wave of potential icons are floating around the Internet.

We thought we’d have a bit of fun with it and create some bingo Elf on the Shelf after seeing Tombola opt for their brand sat on top of a tooth (a molar of course). It’s been fun creating the following and if you find any funny, please feel free to share the images on Twitter or Facebook, and of course, we’d love to see any bingo related ones you have created!
