Buddha Bingo Review - Site Reviews
Buddha Bingo is a brand who choose not to offer an affiliate channel through which we can promote their product. For this reason we offer our players and alternative brand on the same software and network.
In the spring of 2014 a spiritual new dawn descended with the launch of Buddha Bingo. Not really, and we must say we think religiously named bingo sites are generally a little tasteless. We guess the name must come from the lucky buddha ornaments that were popular many years ago, but will rubbing the Buddha's tummy help you to some big wins here?
The Lucky Buddha appears on the homepage at Buddha Bingo as part of the logo. The homepage is fairly simple with quite low resolution graphics, but there are some big deposit bonuses on offer and plenty of information too. A quick look around tells us that this is a Cozy Games website and it's part of the Live Bingo Network. Signing up for a new account is fairly simple and with plenty of payment methods accepted, including major debit and credit cards, Ukash vouchers, Paysafe Card and Neteller. The whole sign up process is fairly quick and easy, but you will have to register a payment method upon sign up. Overall you should be in the bingo rooms within just a few minutes.
When you are ready to play, simply hit the bingo tab and you'll be taken to the bingo lobby where you'll see all the rooms laid out in list format. From the lobby it certainly seems there's plenty to choose from with 90-ball, 80-ball, 75-ball and 30-ball bingo rooms! Player numbers are fairly high, especially for the 90-ball bingo rooms, and from the lobby you can also see what the next jackpot is, how much the tickets are and any progressive jackpot available in that room. As soon as you choose a room to enter, just click the room and the bingo client will launch. The first thing that strikes us is that it isn't quite as graphic-rich as other products on the market, but it all seems to work ok. Ticket purchasing is on the left and although you can buy for the next game you can't see how much the tickets will be until the current game has come to an end. Tickets play in the centre of the screen and here you'll see the ticket price appear on a star before the game starts. Chat is to the right of the tickets and it's not all that active considering the player numbers, this could be explained by the poor chat hosts on duty who clog up the chat box with smileys, making it impossible to get very much chat going anyway.
The games themselves play fine, as mentioned the graphics aren't quite as rich as at other sites, but it's holding its own perfectly well. Alongside the bingo is a selection of side games and these are plentiful with all sorts of games and titles available. Whether you like slots, instant wins or traditional casino games you'll find it all here!
As bingo players we're always looking for something extra, and there's plenty of extras on offer at Buddha Bingo. The promotional schedule is pretty jam-packed and there are generous reload bonuses, monthly promotions, slots promotions and more. These change all the time so it's best to look what's available, but you should find something for you. There's also a free room where you can play without spending any cash, but with some generous deposit bonuses your money goes for miles at Buddha Bingo.
Overall, while Buddha Bingo isn't really setting the bingo world on fire, it does offer a pretty playable experience and there's plenty to do. The graphics aren't the strongest we've seen, and there is steep competition within the market, and sadly the site doesn't offer any more than other sites within the same network. If you think the Buddha might be lucky for you, you certainly have nothing to lose!
