Rollover Bingo Latest On Cashcade Casualty List

Rollover Bingo Closing

Rollover Bingo
Closing Soon

Not so long ago we brought you the news that a few of the Cashcade brands had made the decision to close their virtual doors and at the end of August, they ceased to offer online bingo. Recently we heard of yet another of these sites set to close, and this time it is the turn of Rollover Bingo.

Whilst Telly Talk Bingo, ITV Bingo and Bingo Scotland weren’t a significant loss for the world of online gaming, we think that Rollover Bingo will be. The reason for this is that they offered something a bit more than the bog standard offers when it came to welcome bonuses. Players were awarded lottery tickets with their first deposit.

Cashcade To Close Popular Brands

Cashcade Brands Closing

Cashcade
 Sites Closing

Although Cashcade was sold to PartyGaming and then on to GVC Holdings, the popular brands from the company remained open and available to players even when all around them were closing or making significant changes. Sadly this is no longer the case as several of the brands are due to close at the end of this month.

That’s not all though, it looks as though the first brand I ever played bingo at, Think Bingo, is set to go to the dark side! When I say that, I mean it looks set to move to the Cozy Games product if I am reading the email correctly.

Take A Nibble On Bite Size Bingo

Sunday, Jul. 8th 2018 7:49 AM

It’s been a while since we’ve introduced you to a new bingo site but today we came across yet another addition to the upgraded Jumpman Gaming software. Bite Size Bingo is the game, and if we are entirely honest, the bingo is pretty bite size because hardly any games run because there just aren’t the bingo player numbers on the network anymore.

With that said, whilst Bite Size Bingo doesn’t wow players with the impressive bingo offering or massive jackpots on those games, what it does do is offer quite the selection of instant win games and slots. This seems to be the focus of most of the 15 Network sites, and has been for quite a while.

Online Gambling Financial Checks

Gambling Operators - Financial Checks

More Stringent
 Checks Coming Soon

In June 2018 32Red was penalised to the tune of £2 million following an investigation by the Gambling Commission. They were found to have serious failings in their social responsibility and money laundering checks but they weren’t the first company to be slapped with a hefty fine for this reason.

£7.8 million was the fine levied against 888 back in August 2017 after they were found to fall short on their social responsibility processes too. These sort of shortcomings are not a new occurrence.

Buzz Bingo, Bringing The ‘Buzz’ Back?

Buzz Bingo

Gala Clubs Rebrand
As Buzz Bingo

For many years now retail bingo has been trying to shake the image of the blue rinse brigade. If you visit your local club you’ll find a more younger demographic in attendance than you might expect and Gala Leisure are hopeful that this becomes the norm as Gala rebrands to Buzz Bingo!  

The new branding for the high street venues is part of a £40 million investment that Gala Leisure are putting into their bingo halls over the next couple of years. Gala Leisure was purchased by Caledonia Venus Acquisitions in December 2015.

All Because The Lady Love Bingo

Tuesday, Jun. 19th 2018 7:54 AM

Do you remember the adverts for Milk Tray of the late 60’s with the guy dressed in black performing James Bond type feats to deliver chocolates to the lady in his life? The strapline in these commercials was “and all because the lady loves Milk Tray”. When we heard the name Lady Love Bingo, we were reminded of those adverts.

Lady Love Bingo looks to have launched late May 2018 but there was no fanfare or pre-launch teasers from this new bingo site. The question is though, are the ladies going to love the new site or will it be like some of the other sites on the 15 Network, and only around a couple of years?

One of the things we get really excited about is the impending launch of a new bingo site, especially when we know that others from the same company have really pulled out all the stops. When we heard that the owners of Zoe’s and Katie’s Bingo are set to launch a new brand soon, we were keen to find out all the details. First things first, the name!

Wheel Of Slots Network Winding Bingo Down

Saturday, Jun. 9th 2018 7:17 AM

On 30th May we learned that Free Spirit Bingo was set to make a change. This change saw the brand migrate from the Wheel of Slots Network across to the 15 Network and the new software from Jumpman Gaming. For many this will seem a bit of a sidestep but it would appear that the Wheel Of Slots Network is to be wound down and will eventually not include any bingo brands.

Free Spirit Bingo first launched in November 2015 on WSN but it isn’t a site that has made a great impact in the world of online bingo, much like most of the brands powered by the Jumpman Gaming software. With the move to the 15 Network comes the chance to reclaim the first deposit bonuses again, even if you did have an account previously.
