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.

Four Jumpman Gaming Sites Bite The Dust

Saturday, Jun. 2nd 2018 7:23 AM

For a little while now we have been talking about how bad things have gotten at the Jumpman Gaming sites for bingo. Player numbers have significantly dwindled and at what are peak times on other bingo software platforms, Jumpman struggle to get enough players in for a bingo game to even start!

Things have clearly deteriorated even further with no less than three site closures on the 15 Network and one from the Wheel of Slots Network in as many days! The final one of the closures happened on 29th May with Clucky Bingo being the last of three brands to close their bingo doors and redirect to a Jumpman slots site. Prior to that, on 26th May, Bingo Hombre and Bingo Minions bit the virtual dust, also redirecting to a Jumpman slots site.

Two New Bingo Brands Coming Soon

Monday, Apr. 9th 2018 7:08 AM

Sunshine Digital Media - Two New Bingo Brands

Two New Bingo
Site Coming Soon

Sunshine Digital Media already has quite the presence in the world of online bingo with sites like Lucy Bingo, Welcome Bingo and more recently, Small Bingo to name but a few. Rumour has it that there are two new bingo brands coming soon from this company and the names that are being banded about are My Cute Bingo and Too Good Bingo. However, just because the names have reached our ears, that doesn’t mean to say that they will definitely come to fruition.

In the past we have heard of some other names from the Sunshine Digital Media camp that have yet to open their doors to players. The first was Big Boy Bingo, and let’s be honest, that really isn’t a great name for a site, and then Big Smile Bingo. The latter was expected around July 2What 017 and has still not made an appearance.

Gamesys Bonus Changes And Caesars Bingo Closing

Saturday, Mar. 3rd 2018 7:10 AM

There has been quite a bit of news breaking of late from the Gamesys camp and one interesting story is of the impending closure of Ceasars Bingo. We were informed of the closure by email and the wording was a little ambiguous – ‘CAESARS Bingo will no longer be operated by Entertaining Play Limited, which means that the site will be shut down’.

Does this mean that Caesars Bingo may re-appear in the future but on a different platform or simply that the owners no longer see any value in the brand? We can’t be sure but what we do know is that the site will close on Tuesday 27th March.

Health Bingo Closes Tomorrow

Health Bingo
Closing

The Health Bingo launched in January 2014 but if we’re honest, like many of the Bede Gaming online bingo offerings, it didn’t quite catch our interest. The promotions weren’t up to much and the gaming experience wasn’t that great either so we weren’t overly surprised to hear that tomorrow the brand is closing to players.

It would appear that Health Bingo is going the same way as some other brands have recently and moving away from bingo to concentrate on the far more lucrative for operators option of slots / casino. Health Games is reported to be coming soon and when you visit the bingo site, it was this new venture that is being promoted to people landing at the site.

Bingola Closing Soon

Bingola Closing

Bingola
To Close

Over the last few months we have seen many site closures across many different platforms. Over the last couple of weeks it has been the predominantly sites on the Dragonfish network that have shut their virtual doors for the last time. However, we have also seen Cashcade brands cease to trade. All of these products were powered by the 888 / Cassava software and the latest casualty is Bingola, a JackpotJoy Group brand!

Bingola launched in September 2014 and joined the likes of Costa Bingo in the portfolio of brands that offered a great selection of free games to the masses as well as a no deposit required bonus at launch.

Four Dragonfish Brands Close

Dragonfish Site Closures

Dragonfish
Sites Closures

When it comes to site closures, it’s quite a rarity that a Dragonfish network brand goes out of business. On a recent check of the sites listed under 888 hat, we were shocked to find that no less than four had been removed from the list! Even more shocking were that some of these brands were quite established and have been around since October 2004.

So what are the reasons behind the sites closing? To be honest we don’t have a clue but we don’t think we’d be wrong in suggesting that it was something to do with the new tax implemented in August this year, or even the cost of updating the sites to the new software that Dragonfish are now using. The likelihood is that there were many contributory factors.

Changes Coming To Zinger Bingo

Saturday, Jun. 10th 2017 7:15 AM

Zinger Bingo first launched onto your screens in early 2016, the sister site of Hunky Bingo. Both brands are owned by Tau Gaming, the company behind the first ever UK site to launch with no wagering requirements, Blighty Bingo. Just a few days ago we received an email from this company informing us that on 13th June, Zinger Bingo as we know it is going to close. Don’t panic though, on the same day it will re-open but on a different network.

We were unaware that actually there are no two networks from Dragonfish, the email from Zinger Bingo was quite informative! The two networks, according to the email are the traditional, and best known, Dragonfish Globalcom Network and then more recently, the Dragonfish Real Money Bingo Network. Currently this brand is on the former.
