Empire Bingo Review - Site Reviews
Empire Bingo set out their stall to online players mid-January 2015 becoming the 23rd brand to opt for the Jumpman Gaming software as part of the 15 Network. There hadn’t even been rumours of this brand before launch, it was a name that we hadn’t heard of at all when the site opened. That was a blessing in disguise for the brand if we’re honest, it hadn’t been hyped up so the bland aesthetics that greeted us when we visited weren’t a massive disappointment.
There’s little to make you believe that this brand is by definition anything like an empire. In fact Empire Bingo looks like a run of the mill brand from this network with little thought or time put into the design
Registration to the site is standard to the 15 Network with the usual information required to get started playing at the site. The only issues you may have is using your usual username if you have accounts at other brands on the same network, not a major problem at all. Within minutes you are ready to visit the main lobby and check out what the site has to offer.
Stepping through the virtual doors for the first time you may be disappointed if you were looking for something a little different from the norm available at 15 Network brands. Empire Bingo has all of the popular favourites on offer but nothing unique to make it stand out from a crowd that is increasing at an exponential rate.
You’ll find the usual tabs available as a Newbie – 90 ball, 75 ball, Newbies Jackpot, Jackpots, Instants and Video Bingo and it is very east to navigate your way around the main lobby. To the top of the screen you’ll see your username and balance along with any profile picture you may have chosen to add to your account. The main area, especially under 75 and 90 ball, displays an array of information about the rooms including the number of players, the jackpot amount, time until next game, hosts name if one is on duty and the cost per ticket. All of this information helps you to choose a room at Empire Bingo that suits your requirements. Currently the network only offers two variants of the game online; 75 and 90 ball bingo.
Once you have chosen a room, simply click the image and you are ready to play. Upon entering a room you will find a familiar layout, a design that it easy to navigate through. If you are regular on the 15 Network then you’ll know exactly what you’ll find in an Empire Bingo room. Your bingo tickets are in the centre of your screen with purchasing options just above. Please note that MAX is 96 tickets so be sure to take this into account before hitting that option! Also above your tickets are the game prize details. To the right of the screen is the chat room and an array of instant win games show above the chat. At the top right of the screen are your game options, the ways in which you can customise your game play and the options for Auto Buy or to purchase in other rooms.
Empire Bingo, like all brands on the network, offers you the chance to buy tickets in other rooms without leaving your current venue. Should you choose to use this option then winners in the other rooms will show to the bottom right of your screen in a pop up box.
Empire Bingo boasts all the best features of the 15 Network from the welcome offers to the promotions but sadly, you can get all of this at any brand on the network. There is nothing to set this brand apart from the crowd.
