Golden Pound Review - Site Reviews
In January 2014 Golden Pound was acquired by a company who have chosen not to offer an affiliate scheme through which we can promote their brand. For this reason we have chosen to direct you to another brand on the same network.
Golden Pound isn’t set out like your normal Dragonfish networked brand; the home page looks more casino than bingo with the main focus being on a traditional pub slot machine. There is even a lack of bingo balls adorning the landing page for the Golden Pound brand. Unfortunately, a Dragonfish brand is exactly what this site is despite the styling of their home page.
Bingo balls appear in the navigation menu to the left at Golden Pound and there are a few in the main flash banner but predominance seems to have been given to slots and casino games on the landing page. However the name of the brand doesn’t suggest bingo and it may be that the owners believe there is more money to be made in the instant win games.
It takes just a couple of minutes to complete the registration process at Golden Pound and although there is no free money given just for signing up to the brand, you can play free bingo without making a deposit. Access to the one room available before deposit is time limited and full details fof the free bingo available can be found here.
From the Golden Pound lobby you can see all of the games available in a left hand navigation menu and whilst there are only two types of bingo listed, 75 and 90 ball, the brand also offers the Swedish bingo variant of 75 ball five line bingo as well. This can be found under the 90 ball tab. You can make an informed decision as to which of the bingo rooms suits your requirements as the following details show for each room; chat host name (if one is on duty), time until next game, number of players in the room and the ticket prize.
When you step into a room at Golden Pound you will see the layout is standard to the Dragonfish network with your purchasing options to the left of your screen (these become the bingo call board when the game is in play), tickets in the centre of your screen with prize money and pattern above them and then chat to the right. Above chat are a selection of instant win games, some of which can be played in the same room as your bingo game.
Golden Pound is limited in the number of pre-buy games available at the site but what it lacks in games where you can buy tickets in advance, it makes up for in guaranteed jackpot games. The site also hosts the £1 million coverall games a few times a week but to date, this has yet to be won.
Promotions at Golden Pound are standard to the network with the exception of the increased first deposit bonus. Besides the more slot focused home page design and increased first deposit bonus Golden Pound is no different to 100+ other Dragonfish brands available on the Internet today.
