Glitter Bingo Review - Site Reviews
Like many brands on the Internet today Glitter Bingo launched with an affiliate scheme through which we could promote their brand and then closed the program. For this reason we have directed our traffic to another brand on the same network offering the same gaming experience, if not better.
If it’s the name that initially draws you to play at an online bingo site then Glitter Bingo may be on to a winner. The brand name conjures up images of fun girly nights, dancing and fun friends. As soon as you hit the homepage, the special offers and welcome bonus details are thrown at you as the site makes clever use of Flash software. The landing page has plenty of zeal and is jam-packed with sparkles and information, allowing you to get a good look at what’s available before you even sign up.
This isn’t the first online site to try and sell sparkles, previously we’ve seen Glitterball Bingo but they, like many others have been kicked to the proverbial kerb . Glitterball Bingo was a brand launched by Party Gaming that never really attracted much interest, could the same be said for Glitter Bingo in the not too distant future. With generous sign-up bonuses and an appealing brand it seems that the site (which opened in December 2012) offers plenty of bling and could be a bit more successful than the Party Gaming offering.
Powered by software from 888Holdings/ Globalcom, Glitter Bingo is part of the Dragonfish bingo network, the biggest bingo network on the Internet. This means you get the chance to compete against other players at a number of other sites making the jackpots larger and the chat rooms fuller than some of the standalone brands available online.
Signing up for a new account is really simple and although they do ask for your card details straight off, you can leave these fields blank if you wish to look around the site before you play. The only issue you may have is if you are already signed up to other sites on the Dragonfish network, you will need to come up with a unique username for Glitter Bingo.
There aren’t any no-deposit bonuses on offer but there is free bingo to play if you prefer to try out the site before you make a deposit, and when you are ready to deposit there are generous sign up bonuses, some of the best across the entire network in fact!
When you load the bingo client, it’s pretty much as you would expect from any site on the network. The colours are easy on the eye and the screen is well laid out. Bingo tickets appear to the left of the screen and there are plenty of game options to personalise too, chat is more centralised, with other games, information and details posted around the edge of the screen. There are both traditional 90-ball and 75-ball games on offer but that’s it for bingo selection. However, Glitter Bingo does make up for it with a huge selection of slots, casino games and instant wins.
Again this is a review for how the Dragonfish network is seamless and playable, it’s easy to see why it’s the biggest network around, but once you’re logged in and once you’ve claimed that initial big deposit bonus, Glitter Bingo is just like all the others. The promotions and games are pretty standard across the entire network and the regular sign up bonuses, wagering requirements and players remain the same across the network.
However, having said that, Glitter Bingo do have two additional tabs in comparison with other brands on the network and these feature rooms exclusive for this sites members. This gives it a little edge over the hundreds of other sites available on the Internet that use the same software and network.
