bgo Bingo Review - Site Reviews
bgo Bingo launched in October 2012, the new home of XBingo and the site had a very different look and feel to what players were used to from the old brand. On 10th June 2015 the site underwent another massive transformation as it migrated away from the proprietary software that to offered by Virtue Fusion / Playtech and welcomed Paris Hilton as an additional celebrity face of the brand (she joined Verne Troyer). The homepage feature several different types of gaming options; there is bingo, Vegas, Casino, Macau and Sports to choose from but of course, we are here for the bingo!
It’s a very colourful home page with Paris Hilton taking centre stage at the time of the updated review. A scrolling banner at bgo Bingo tells you of some of the promotions including free slot spins on Starburys, a cash match offer when you deposit and even a selection of free bingo as well as promotional details of the current offer.
Players who previously held accounts with the old bgo can use the details from their old account to login to the new bgo. Registering a new account if you weren’t a member of the old site takes just a few moments with the usual information required. In order to claim the free welcome bonus you do have to include your debit/credit card details.
Your first port of call if you’re looking for bingo is the bingo tab. This will take you to the lobby where you can view all the rooms available. There are many different options available to you as a player with the software offering you a smorgasbord of different game variants. There is 75, 80 and 90 ball games offered as well as a whole plethora of themed games like Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Deal or No Deal, Lucky Numbers Bingo and popular games like Joker Jackpot. The site also hosts several standalone rooms for players and these can be found under the bgo World tab from the main lobby.
From the lobby you can see details of the room name, game type, numbers of players, time until the next game, ticket price and the house prize on offer. Just choose a room that suits your budget and you are ready to play.
In any of the bingo game rooms the layout is the same as at most Virtue Fusion game sites. The ticket purchasing options are shown in a pop up box as you enter the room and cover the bingo tickets on the left of the screen. Above this are details of the game prizes on offer. To the right of the screen is the chat room with instant win games directly above that.
When it comes to promotions there seems to be quite an array but these currently appear to be networked deals rather than exclusives at bgo Bingo.
With unique features and standalone rooms, bgo Bingo will likely appeal to many different players and with the loss of the proprietary software in favour of one of the best online today, this brand should certainly continue to enjoy much success.
