3am Social Bingo Review - Facebook Bingo
3am Social Bingo launched into the social networking world on 11th July 2012, just 20 days before the pay to play brand 3am Bingo closed it's doors and diverted its members to Mirror Bingo. The link is apparent the moment you use the app for the first time with an abundance of banners and links directing players to "play for real" at Mirror Bingo.The app was created by GameShaper/Enteraction Ltd, a company behind the Bingo Garden Facebook app too. Billed as being the place to "Climb the fame ladder by winning bingo in celebrity haunts and get recognised by the high and mighty A-list celebs!" at the time of the review, just over three weeks after release, only a small number of people were using the app. However as it was still in its infancy at the time of the review, player numbers could well have increased.
Like many Facebook Bingo apps 3am Social Bingo has a story;
You are a small-town down to earth kind of person, who lives in awe of the bright lights of Mirror City and the pavements lined with gold! You have decided the time is now; the time has come for you to hurl yourself into the mix and finally get your slice of the fame-pie!
The aim of the game is to work your way up the ranks to celebrity stardom and you can achieve this by playing bingo, showing up to special events and VIP venues and with each win on the game you have the chance to encounter a celebrity at random which will increase your own "stardom".
