Gambling Commission Cracking Down Further

Monday, Aug. 13th 2018 5:08 PM

Gambling Commission - New Rules

 UKGC To Introduce
New Rules

Over the last few months we have seen many changes around the world of online bingo, and online gambling in general. This has been because there have been many changes and stricter expectations of the operators thanks to the Gambling Commission and Competitions and Markets Authority (CMA). We’ve seen everything become more transparent for the consumer and several gambling companies fined heavily for social responsibility failings.

There could be even more changes afoot as in October 2018 new rules from the Gambling Commission come into force and this will mean that gambling companies will be facing tougher action for failings around advertising rules and consumer law breaches.

Summer Nights With Sun Bingo

Monday, Jul. 30th 2018 9:48 AM

We all love a bit of free bingo and we like it even more when the prize money on offer is worth winning. The latter is certainly true of the prize pots on offer in the latest promotion from Sun Bingo. Summer Nights Bingo with this popular brand started on 26th July and continues through until 30th August so you have plenty of time to get involved.

But how do you get involved at Sun Bingo? Well that’s really easy. All you have to do is deposit and spend £10 in any of the qualifying weeks of the promotion. There are a total of five weeks for qualifying and each runs from a Thursday to a Wednesday with the free session running on a Thursday.

The weather in the UK has been glorious for a few weeks now but we all know just how changeable it can be.

Staycation At Bid Bingo

Monday, Jul. 16th 2018 7:34 AM

With the weather having been so glorious in the UK, it’s no wonder that many Brits are opting for a staycation rather than holidaying abroad this year. Bid Bingo are actively encouraging this with their latest promotion called Staycation.

It all kicks off today at Bid Bingo, and their sister sites, and it’s all about being the player who fulfills the requirement of the day. There are no less than seven different family days out in the UK on offer in this promotion. The total value of prizes over the week (Monday through until Sunday) is around the £900 mark but will you be one of the lucky winners?

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.

Blox Bingo From Jackpot Joy

Sunday, Jul. 1st 2018 7:31 AM

Over the years we have seen a number of themed bingo games launched and we recall one called Bejeweled Bingo that was available at Jackpot Joy back in August 2010. The game wasn’t around for long but now we’ve found that there’s a similar bingo game available at the site but with a different name! It’s called Blox Bingo and when we first heard of it, we thought it was a new way to play the actual bingo game, it’s not.

Blox Bingo is like a standard game of 90 ball bingo except that when the numbers are called, they don’t appear on screen in bingo balls. Instead they are in ‘blox’. From a normal game, this is the only difference at Jackpot Joy BUT, if you have six tickets in play, you’ll then get to play Blox Blitz after the main game!

Buzz Bingo, Bringing The ‘Buzz’ Back?

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.
