Dotty Bingo Review - Site Reviews
Dotty Bingo first launched into the world of online gaming in the summer of June 2011, another brand that is powered by the Microgaming software. Shortly after launch the brand started advertising their wares on television generating a lot of interest thanks to a no deposit required welcome bonus. The affiliate program for the brand however was not launched until May 2013 hence the delay in reviewing the product.
Landing at the site for the first time you’ll find the home page quite plain in comparison with other brands online today. Dotty Bingo, at the time of the review, offers a home page that focuses on the welcome bonuses available and their jackpots with a featured game that is a slot.
Registration is really straightforward with the usual information required in order to sign up with the site. No financial details are required and if there is a no deposit required bonus on offer at the time of registration, this is added to your account instantly.
From the main lobby, your first port of call when you have registered and are ready to play, you can see the rooms available at the site. Dotty Bingo offers both 75 and 90 ball bingo. You can also see a selection of information about the rooms; details include time until next game, prize per ticket, number of players in each room, the pot prize, and other jackpot amounts.
Step into any of the rooms and you will find navigation and game play really simple to follow. Bingo cards are to the left of your screen with details of the game prizes and ticket prices above. The purchasing options are quick buy and by selecting the tickets you wish to purchase. To the right of the screen is the chat room with details of your balance above and a selection of instant win games below.
Dotty Bingo, like all Microgaming sites, have audio presets used in the chat rooms. These are a little like Marmite – you either love them or you hate them but for those who are of the latter ilk, thankfully there is a mute button.
There is a progressive jackpot on offer in the 90 ball rooms which can be won by calling bingo in just 30 numbers and also the Cash Blitz, a jackpot of £500, that can be won if you call a full house in 38 numbers or less.
Promotions are sadly as limited at Dotty Bingo as they are at other brands using Microgaming, at least at the time of the review. However, their promotional calendar keeps you up to date with what is happening offering up information about the big jackpots, prizes and much more.
If you’re a fan of the Microgaming bingo product then the chances are you will love this site.
