Big Tease Bingo Lives Up To Its Name

Thursday, Mar. 16th 2017 7:49 AM

When it comes to naming your online bingo site, most operators have a struggle to come up with something original and relevant. All too often we see random words thrown in front of the word bingo to create a ‘brand’. This is certainly true of the latest site to launch using the BingoS software, Big Tease Bingo. Sadly it is not just the name that leaves a lot to be desired, the overall design does too.

That said, we did quite like the welcome offer extended to new players at Big Tease Bingo although it’s not quite what you would expect. We see sites launch with access to a free play room without a deposit all the time but this site goes that extra mile and offers a few free slot spins too.

St. Pats Party Weekend At Costa Bingo

Tuesday, Mar. 14th 2017 7:23 AM

Most people know that St. Patrick’s Day is not too far off now. As a bingo player, even if your didn’t, the rush of Irish themed promotions over the last week or so will have given you a clue. The latest that we have come across is from Costa Bingo and there is a trip for two to the Emerald Isle itself to be won!

The promotion was first announced on 1st March and since that time, players have been eligible to collect tickets for the big prize bingo game that plays on Friday 17th March at 9 pm. You have until 16th March to collect your tickets but alternatively, you can pre-buy them from the lobby at a cost of £2 each. If you prefer, you can exchange 10 Diamonds for a card too.

Gamble Aware Launch Online Campaign

Gamble Aware
Online Campaign

When it comes to responsible gambling, we have seen many changes in the world of online bingo over the years. As time progresses we see more and more tools made available to players to ensure that they gamble responsibly and in January 2015, the Senet Group launched a TV campaign to further strengthen people’s understanding of gambling responsibly.

Earlier in the year we saw Gamble Aware launch an online campaign called BeGambleAware and in comparison with the Senet Group campaign, BeGambleAware is far more sinister and dark. Often this sort of advertising can be harder hitting and as a result, have a longer last impact on the viewer.

Foxy Bingo And
Heather Graham

When you think of the brand Foxy Bingo you think of a cheeky fox in a purple suit who has a northern accent and likes to hang out with celebs from TOWIE right? At least that is what we have always associated the brand with, that and Jeremy Kyle. Well the news today is that this is all set to change!

Hot on the heels of the termination of affiliate contracts, Foxy Bingo have announced that they are also kicking Jeremy Kyle to the kerb as part of a new £10 million marketing campaign. But what can you expect from this new way of promoting the popular brand? The answer is simple – Heather Graham, an AMERICAN actress.

Bumble Bingo Birthday Gift

Birthday Prezzie
From Bumble Bingo

Many online bingo sites today offer their loyal players a little something extra each year when their birthday comes around. This varies from site to site but for the most part it will be something like a few loyalty points or a bonus code. This was the case for me this month when my birthday rolled around, but I also got a little surprise in the post from Bumble Bingo.

Now Bumble Bingo had already made quite an impression on me when a welcome gift arrived in the post by way of a candle making kit soon after I registered and deposited with the site [read more about my welcome gift from Bumble Bingo here].  Whilst I’ve received welcome gifts before, nothing quite as impressive has landed on my doorstep.

Age Verification With Blighty Bingo

Tuesday, Feb. 14th 2017 7:01 AM

Blighty Bingo brought something new and different to the bingo table when it launched recently. The most obvious was the change in welcome bonus structure, offering free bingo tickets and free spins that carried no wagering requirements. In addition to this, there was a new look lobby and new games rooms.

However, the new features didn’t stop there. Blighty Bingo has also introduced a compulsory age verification process for new players. This comes in to play the moment that you make your first deposit and from that point you have just three days, 72 hours, to provide details of your passport or driving licence number via the online system.

Volcano Bingo Erupts On WSN

Saturday, Feb. 11th 2017 7:04 AM

Volcano Bingo joined the ranks of the Wheel Of Slots Network (WSN) towards the end of January and as you would expect, the logo and home page design features a volcano. However, what the brand fails to deliver is an explosive gaming experience for the player. This is simply because the Wheel of Slots Network caters more for the slot player than those who are after a decent game of bingo.

Volcano Bingo is the second brand from the Meteor Marketing to launch on the Jumpman Gaming software. The first was Rocket Bingo on the 15 Network back in

A Great Welcome From Bumble Bingo

Bumble Bingo
Creates A Buzz

Bumble Bingo joined the ranks of the Dragonfish network just before Christmas 2016 and at first glance, looks like a number of others that we had seen prior to its launch. It’s often hard to get excited about something you have seem multiple times previously but then a little something landed on our doormat and we were buzzing!

We’d registered and deposited a few times with Bumble Bingo at launch but hadn’t been back for a few weeks. Yesterday a little package was delivered from this new bingo site and to say we were impressed would be an understatement. What we received was very apt, it was a candle making kit complete with instructions, bees wax, wick and ribbon and two bumble bee pins.
