Goldfish Bingo Review - Site Reviews
Goldfish Bingo was first launched in February 2011 then in November 2014 all traffic to the site was redirected to Gone Bingo. However, in May 2016 the site reappeared! It's a site with an interesting history. The review below has been updated to incorporate the slight changes that have happened on site between November 2014 and May 2016.
Goldfish Bingo; first thoughts are what a really stupid name for an online bingo site. Goldfish are won at fairs, they are childhood pets, and not something that screams bingo! Scroll down the page and you’ll see that this brand is part of the Best Bingo Network which means it’s powered by the Cozy Games software and therein lies the reason for the really stupid site name.
In comparison with some of the brands on the network the home page of Goldfish Bingo is rather bland with just one goldfish in a bowl as part of the logo but are we going to have a “swimmingly” good time at this site?
Previously registration could prove to be a bit problematic at GoldFish Bingo if you had accounts at any of the other brands on the Best Bingo Network. However, since the site originally launched, this is no longer an issue. The home page shows a £15 no deposit required welcome bonus, which is added when you click the validation email link.
When you have validated your account you are then able to visit the lobby of Goldfish Bingo to see exactly what the brand has to offer by way of bingo games and instant win games.
The lobby, at the time of the original review, showed five bingo rooms of which one was only available to depositing players. The bingo variants available are 75, 80 and 90 ball bingo but now Cozy Games sites also offer Speed Bingo (30 ball) and 50 ball games but only at certain times of the day.
Alongside the bingo offering there are plenty of slot and casino style games to choose from and you can use your bonus money on these games too. However, you should note that if you win using your bonus funds then the winnings are paid in bonus money.
Goldfish Bingo is what it is, another Cozy Games brand but one with a rather unusual history.
