Bingo 1 Review - Site Reviews
At the time of listing Bingo 1 on our pages, the brand did not offer an affiliate scheme through which we can promote them. For this reason we have directed our readers to another site on the same network / software combination.
With so many bingo sites on the market we’re amazed there wasn’t already a Bingo 1, but onto the bingo scene it launched in the summer of 2015 with a rather tabloid feel and a bright and in your face homepage. It’s black, red and white and it looks like a tabloid newspaper with flashing banners, big headlines and plenty of information about what’s going on around site.
Bingo 1 is part of the Live Bingo Network and operates on software from Cozy Games, one of the fastest growing networks on the market with over 2,500 players online when we visit. First things, first and we need to sign up for a new account, and there are some big incentives to do so! Signing up is fairly easy though you’ll need a debit or credit card to verify your identity. When you’re signed up you can choose from a selection of payment methods for your convenience including Ukash, Neteller, and Paysafe Card.
If you’re familiar with this software then you’re likely to find everything exactly where you expect to, if anything it’s a bit too samey once you get past the homepage. Once you’re signed up and ready to play hit the bingo tab and you’ll see all the bingo rooms laid out in list format. The layout and design is identical to other sites on this software with players spread across a great many sites.
From the lobby you’ll see that one thing Bingo 1 does offer is plenty of bingo with tons of bingo variants, lots of different rooms and progressive jackpots too. There are many different types of bingo including Bingo 90, 80, 75, 50 and 30-ball so you really are spoiled for choice. We head into one of the rooms and it’s an ok layout though it feels a bit cramped. Bingo tickets play to the left of the screen and you can buy ahead for the next game. The tickets themselves aren’t as clear as we feel they could be, but it’s the chat room that soon wears thin with constant smileys and silly natter from the host but no real chat. Overall the bingo plays ok but we do think there are much better software packages out there. Saying with that 2,500 players online, they must be doing something right!
Across in the games section you’ll find just as much choice, there are tens and tens of slot machines, all offering different features and jackpots, instant win games, traditional casino games and more. Overall the sheer choice here is fantastic and there’s plenty to keep even the most avid bingo fan pleased for hours!
The promotions page is a bit bear, we even struggle to find details of the sign up offer but this may be just because it’s a new brand and they’re having some glitches. The promotions that are available depend on high wagering players and if you’re just an occasional low-roll player you might find there’s nothing exciting for you. In addition to this the promotions are also network wide, and sadly Bingo 1 has nothing different to any other Cozy Brand out there.
And in the end we think that’s the big downside here at Bingo 1. It’s great and snazzy and looks like a big bright tabloid newspaper. The homepage is sleek and well designed, the games are plentiful and in abundance but when you scratch the surface it’s just another Cozy Games site.
