Beacon Bingo Review - Site Reviews
On the 31st May 2015 the affiliate program used to promote Beacon Bingo closed and we were advised to 'remove all Beacon / Beaky Bingo offers and banners from your site'. For this reason we have directed our players to another brand who offers the same gaming experience but with different promotions and bonus offers.
Beacon Bingo is the online bingo site of the well known UK land-based bingo company - Beacon Entertainments Ltd - which is one of Europe’s largest and most experienced gaming organisations. There are six Beacon Bingo Clubs, as well as twenty six arcades, and their online site, of course. Beacon Bingo uses the Virtue Fusion bingo software so, if you’ve played on any other Virtue Fusion bingo sites, you’ll know exactly what to expect and you’ll be able to find your way around in no time at all.
The first thing you will notice while playing at Beacon Bingo is the video display features on many of their web pages. You will be welcomed to the site by an enthusiastic gent and his lovely assistant, who may seem friendly and welcoming at first but they can soon become annoying. The Beacon Bingo homepage is nicely designed with an attractive colour scheme and there are very few links, keeping things to a minimum – nice and simple.
Beacon Bingo offers games of US-style 75-ball pattern bingo, 80-ball shutterboard bingo and classic 90-ball bingo, as well as a selection of online slots, scratch cards, number games and casino games. You can access all of the side games from the bingo play window, meaning you can play them while still playing bingo. The bingo rooms at Beacon Bingo are nice and colourful with a large proportion of the screen dedicated to the bingo chat window, making it easier to chat and make friends. All new players are welcomed to the chat room by the CM’s and you will find the other players are also helpful and friendly.
As Beacon Bingo is one of the bingo sites on the Virtue Fusion network you will find a choice of familiar promotions, which is no bad thing as these include; BOGOF Bingo, penny bingo and plenty of other opportunities to win big. Every day of the week Beacon Bingo plays host to three Bingo Linx games, each with guaranteed prizes ranging from £150 to £2,500 and on the last Sunday of every month there is a whopping £10,000 super link game to take part in.
Beacon Bingo may not have all of the bells and whistles found at other bingo sites but what they do offer is a good old game of bingo combined with guaranteed jackpots, which is what online bingo is really all about. Sign up and give them a try, if you like what you see you can follow them on Facebook and earn yourself £10 for free. What have you got to lose?
