Monday, Jul. 11th 2016 7:46 AM

Broadway Gaming Ltd, the company that owns and operates Butlers Bingo have this week had their wrists slapped by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) have they were reported for misleading information on their mobile home page. The complaint was brought after their page featured a promotion on the 15th April offering “Deposit £10. Play £35”.

The complainant contacted the ASA after challenging whether the offer was misleading or not, as it failed to mention that there were wagering requirements attached to the offer before players could withdraw any winnings.

Now Available – The 1st PlayingBingo.co.uk Anthology Of Bingo

Friday, Aug. 7th 2015 12:33 PM
book-cover

We’re proud to announce that our first ever book is now ready for public consumption. It’s taken a while to come to fruition, but we’re finally able to show off our book. It’s titled The 1st PlayingBingo.co.uk Anthology Of Bingo, and collects together a range of short-stories, poems and photographs all inspired by the game of bingo, and you can buy it right here!

Featuring a diverse range of content, from sci-fi to kitchen sink drama, the book has been compiled from the short-listed and winning entries to the poetry and writing competitions we held a few years back. There’s also a number of full-colour photo pages in the book, featuring the work of Michael Hess and Henry/Bragg. All in all it’s a nice little compilation of content that’s should have a few items to appeal to anyone.

I’m going to call it here and now, this (to my best knowledge) is the world’s first (and only) anthology dedicated to the game of bingo. Why it’s taken this long for someone to create such a compilation I can only guess, but there you go. If anyone out there knows different and would like to quosh my claim, then please feel free to let me know. Until then, I’m sticking with my assertion that there’s never been a collection in print like this one before, and this is a genuine world first. ;)

New Look Site At Mecca Bingo

Saturday, Jun. 27th 2015 7:52 AM

While perusing the net today and looking for all the best bingo offers for you, we noticed that Mecca Bingo has launched a brand new website, and while it’s still recognisable, there have been some big changes!

What hasn’t changed is the welcome bonus, still £40 free when you sign up and spend £10, that’s 400%, but a complete overhaul of the site brings a sleek feel, a slightly different layout and some big changes to the graphics at Mecca Bingo.

Parlay Software To Change Hands

Wednesday, Jun. 24th 2015 7:19 AM

Intertain weren’t a particularly well known name in the UK until quite recently when they bought up a number of Gamesys Bingo brands including Jackpot Joy, and now it seems the brand is bent on world domination as it snaps up the Parlay software too! Now the purchase of Gamesys we can understand, it’s a fantastic software package with some real gems like Jackpot Joy using it, but Parlay isn’t that big with UK players and we’ve seen several recent closures.

If you’re unfamiliar with the name then the Parlay software powers smaller, lesser known sites such as Astro Bingo, and since a selection of these sites moved to the G2 Gtech software it has even less appeal.

Live Bingo Network Add 50-Ball Bingo

Thursday, Nov. 20th 2014 7:23 AM

The Live Bingo Network, or LBN is a popular bingo network using software from Cozy Games and throughout the last year it’s gone through some massive changes. In 2014, sixteen brands have been added to the company’s portfolio including Raw Bingo, LMAO Bingo, and many others, and now the LBN is expanding its games portfolio too with the introduction of a 50-ball bingo room.

Already Cozy Games has many bingo variants, 90-ball, 80-ball, 75-ball and speed ball 30, but when we reviewed one of the LBN sites a few weeks ago, we noticed a 50-ball room. On our next log in it was gone, and we can only assume it was a trial run, but now it’s official, 50-ball bingo will be available at LBN.
