BingoCams Shake Up Welcome Bonuses

Tuesday, Sep. 12th 2017 7:18 AM

Over the last few weeks it seems like all we have been doing is amending bonus pages and removing no deposit required offers from our listings of various sites. The most recent has been Bingocams because they have opted to remove their £5 free offer to new players.

However, when we took a look at the overall picture and took into account the terms and conditions of the new offer at Bingocams, we weren’t quite as disappointed. The no deposit bonus offer may have gone, but they’ve introduced free spins on the Starburst slot to complement the 300% cash match offer (which incidentally hasn’t changed).

888 Fined For Responsible Gambling Error

Thursday, Sep. 7th 2017 7:06 AM

888 Fine

UKGC Fine
888 £7.8M

A few months ago now I started receiving emails from Security at Cassava telling me my accounts had been closed at a number of different bingo sites on the Dragonfish network. The same happened with all sites powered by the same software. I thought at the time they were doing what had happened with other players, that I was being banned for what they consider to be bonus abuse.

This was not the case, and when I started receiving emails from them requesting bank details, I asked what was going on. It turns out that when I closed my 888 Poker account a few years ago, 888 should have closed all associated accounts.

New Bonus Options Coming To Dragonfish Sites

Tuesday, Sep. 5th 2017 7:56 AM

Every now and then a really interesting piece of information comes our way and we get a little bit giddy with excitement. Today our excitement is because we have heard that the Dragonfish sites are set to introduce and opt out option for bonuses in the not too distant future! We’re like dogs with two tails because way back in September of 2015 we verbalised what many players were thinking, why was there no opt out available for bonuses?

In an article entitled ‘Dragonfish Move The Bonus Goal Posts’ [read it here], we looked at how the changes that Dragonfish made at that point around bonuses was going to affect players. In the piece we said ‘we would like to see is the ability to opt out of receiving the deposit bonuses’ and even asked the question of the powers that be at 888 if this was likely to be an option.

Should Mums Still Be Going To Iceland Bingo?

Tuesday, Aug. 29th 2017 7:01 AM

On 1st August a new tax was levied against bingo operators, one that meant many have chosen to drop their no deposit required bonuses and re-think their welcome bonus structure. The new tax sees operators charged 15% for all free bets / plays they offer to their customers.

Whilst many brands have opted to remove or reduce significantly their free play bonuses, Iceland Bingo appear to have been a bit more subtle. It may be that they were hoping players wouldn’t notice, or aren’t that interested. It’s our job to be interested on your behalf and we noticed a change when checking the bonuses at all sites we have listed.

New Jumpman Gaming Sites Coming Soon

Saturday, Aug. 19th 2017 2:12 AM

Jumpman Gaming

Jumpman Gaming

As regular readers of our site will know, we are always on the hunt for news of new and coming soon bingo sites. Usually what happens is we will see an influx of new sites on a certain network or software and it would appear that it’s currently the turn of the Jumpman Gaming software. There are two networks powered by this software, 15 Network and Wheel of Slots Network (WSN), and both have new sites coming soon.

We are not sure on the launch dates for any of the brands that we are looking at, and to be honest, we could be waiting some time if Spins Bingo is anything to go by.

Reduction In Minimum Withdrawal Amount At Ignite Brands

Tuesday, Aug. 15th 2017 7:58 AM

The world of online bingo is one that is always changing, always evolving and for a few years now, this has often been in favour of the player. With responsible gambling at the fore we have seen changes in wagering requirements, clearer terms and conditions and many other changes that have enhanced our gaming experience.

Earlier in the month we received an interesting email from Ignite Bingo, the company responsible for marketing brands like Costa Bingo and the most recent launch from this company, Real Deal Bingo. The email was waxing lyrical about the minimum withdrawal amount at all of their sites.

WTG Bingo Launches On 15 Network

Thursday, Jul. 20th 2017 7:56 AM

It’s been a little while since we saw a new brand launch on the 15 Network, the people behind the network look to be concentrating their efforts on slots of late. However, a couple of weeks ago we saw WTG Bingo join the ranks but whilst it is a new site, there is nothing exciting about it. It’s for this reason we haven’t rushed to bring it to your attention because actually, this site is just like many of the others, the only difference being the design.

Where some brands on the network (Rocket and Lollipop to name a couple) make a bit of effort to stand out from the crowd, WTG Bingo doesn’t appear to have made any effort at all. Even the design is rather dull and uninteresting.

Silk Bingo Reduce Wagering Requirements

Tuesday, Jul. 11th 2017 7:38 AM

Silk Bingo is one of those brands that we don’t visit very often but in one of our bonus checks recently, we had cause to check out all that they had to offer. Upon landing at the site, it was clear to see that the virtual painters and decorators had been in! The logo has changed, and the overall aesthetics of the site had improved.

It was then that we noted the cash match bonus on first deposit had been reduced significantly. Further investigation revealed that the wagering requirements have been reduced too so what might, at first glance, look like a negative thing, actually has some positive connotations too at Silk Bingo.
