Blocks At Tombola

Wednesday, Sep. 5th 2018 8:10 PM

We’ve always been big fans of Tombola and it’s easy to see why this site has won numerous awards, both from its peers and its players. However, over the last couple of years, it has slacked off in the introduction of new and innovative games to its bingo offering whilst the team concentrated on Tombola Arcade.

One of our favourite things about Tombola was the new game launches and FINALLY, we have a new one to tell you about (albeit it a bit after launch). The game is Blocks and it first appeared at the site back in July of this year. The question is, does it have the playability of firm favourites like Rollercoaster and Cinco?

Jumpman Gaming To Make Changes Following CMA Investigation

CMA

Jumpman Gaming
Making Changes

For quite some time now we have taken issue with the restrictions around withdrawals that Jumpman Gaming sites have put in place but it would seem that these have all changed thanks to an investigation carried out by the Competitions and Marketing Authority (CMA).

On Wednesday 29th August 2018, the CMA published a press release naming both Jumpman Gaming and Progress Play as two firms that have formally agreed to remove the terms and conditions that stopped players withdrawing their own money in one go. At first glance we could see that there has been a change in the daily, weekly and monthly withdrawal restrictions but this does not appear to have been as a result of the advice by the CMA.

Real Money Network For LoadsABingo

Tuesday, Aug. 28th 2018 1:34 PM

LoadsaBingo is likely not a name that you have heard of, despite having been around since September 2012. The reason for this is that at launch it was just one of many sites that had opted to open on the Dragonfish network. So many brands were launching at this time that unless there was something new or interesting on offer, most openings went unnoticed.

This month LoadsABingo made a significant change, one that could suddenly bring the site out of the shadows of the more popular brands on the Dragonfish network! As of now, this site is now part of the Real Money Network from Dragonfish, a network that boasts no wagering requirements at all! AND, because of the move, even if you had an account at the old site – you have to re-register with the brand which means you get to claim the welcome offer all over again.

Cashcade To Close Popular Brands

Wednesday, Aug. 22nd 2018 12:44 PM

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.

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.

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.
