Funtastic Bingo Review - Site Reviews
At launch Funtastic Bingo didn't offer an affiliate scheme through which we can promote their site. For this reason we have chosen to redirect you to a site with better bonuses and, whilst on the same network, has an array of exclusive promotions for players.
Funtastic Bingo opened to players as part of the Dragonfish network at the beginning of June 2014 but before you dismiss this as just another networked brand, we suggest reading through the review. When you land at the site for the first time you’re greeted with a sunny colour scheme and the obligatory bingo balls that we have come to expect from the design of many a site online today.
There’s a scrolling banner on the landing page of Funtastic Bingo that tells of the welcome bonus offer and the free bingo that is available for all players, funded or unfunded – one of the best parts of the Dragonfish network. A quick flick of the finger to scroll down the page and there is a little blurb about what the brand has planned for their players.
To get started at the site you simply have to complete the registration process. Whether you are a complete novice or an avid online player, sign up takes just a few minutes (dependent on your typing speed) and then you are ready to play. The only issue you may have if you are a regular player at Dragonfish sites is choosing a username that isn’t already taken, other than that it’s pretty easy to get started.
The central hub of any bingo site is the lobby and of course, this is true at Funtastic Bingo too. With an easy to follow navigational menu you’ll soon be in one of the many rooms that the site has to offer. Sadly, the bingo variants available are not as plentiful as found on other software platforms – just 75 ball in pattern or five line format and traditional 90 ball. However, whilst the site lacks in bingo variants, it has a jam-packed portfolio of instant win and slot games for those who love a little reel spin or casino style games.
The lobby hosts a whole plethora of information from the chat hosts name to the number of players in the room. All of these details help you choose a room that suits your needs.
Step into one of the bingo rooms and the easy navigation continues. Ticket purchasing options are to the left of the screen, tickets in the centre and the chat room to the right. If you like to participate in chat and earn points for doing so, the chat game rules show just above the chat room with a simple click of a button.
When it comes to jackpots, there an abundance on offer at Funtastic Bingo but only the usual offerings - £1 million coveralls, daily specials and a selection of other pre-buys. If you’re looking for something different, you won’t find it in the promotional schedule of this site (yet). It could be that in the fullness of time, the brand adds a little personal touch to the rooms.
Funtastic Bingo is worthy of it’s name because it’s on a well-known and trusted platform. However, if you are looking for something a little different or with a twist, you won’t find it behind these virtual doors.
