Grimms Bingo Review - Site Reviews
Grimms Bingo opened to the online player in September 2014, launching on a Swedish domain but advertising their Cozy Bingo wares to a UK Market. The site is one of many online today that have opted for the Live Bingo Network (LBN) but at launch, where other brands on LBN were dropping the no deposit required offers, Grimms still had one available (please note: this may have changed since the review was written).
When you first land at Grimms Bingo it seems that the site just has treetops and blue skies as the design on the homepage but scroll down and you can see a Smurf like house cut into the hill. We’re not really sure as to the reason for the name of this site, at a guess we would say the Brothers Grimm but then they were German (although geography doesn’t seem to be the strong point of this brand - Swedish domain, UK market, German fairy tales).
Let’s get down to business though and see exactly what the brand has to offer by way of bingo. Is there going to be a happy ending with this site? The registration process is pretty standard for an online bingo site with your name and email address along with a few other details required. Financial information is also needed to create your account but no money will be taken until you choose to make a deposit. Once all of this was done a validation was required by clicking the link in our welcome email and we were ready to play.
The story begins at Grimms Bingo in the lobby and here we are introduced to the main characters. You’ll find details of all the different bingo variants available with rooms hosting 75, 80 and 90 ball bingo in abundance. There is even a room offering 30 ball games at this site. From the lobby you can see the game type, the number of players in the room, the prize pool and the jackpots available. All of this information helps you make a decision based on your budget and gaming preferences.
When you have chosen a room simply click ‘Play Now’ and you’ll enter the fairy tale castle of your choice. The layout in the rooms is standard to the Live Bingo Network/Cozy Games camp. The purchasing options are to the left of the screen (these become the call board when a game is in play) and to the centre are your bingo tickets. Above the tickets you will see the prize information and details of the room jackpot or progressive and how many calls required to win it. To the right is the chat room that has the instant win game options above it, of which there are many.
Sadly Grimms Bingo is subject to the same chat hosts as all other sites on LBN that means the social side of bingo is lost in a chat room awash with smileys, something we hope that one day Cozy Games will address!
Promotions are limited to the network offerings; standard practice with sites from Cozy so there is no new storyline at this site. It’s a tale we have heard a hundred times before and will no doubt have on repeat for some time yet.
That said players clearly love a Cozy Games site so whilst we may not be overly impressed with what Grimms Bingo has to offer – you may be of a different opinion.
