Iceland Bingo Review - Site Reviews
Iceland Bingo opened in October 2012 and as the name suggests, is brought to you by the experts in frozen foods! Check the about us page and it clearly states “The trade and domain name Iceland Bingo / Bingo Iceland is used under license from Iceland Foods Limited.” The question is, whilst Mums shop at Iceland will they be playing at Iceland Bingo? The homepage of the site sports the colour scheme of the shopping brand and is awash with information about what the site has to offer; from the welcome bonuses to the big winners, slot games to the latest promotion, it can all be viewed on the landing page.
Iceland Bingo is a Dragonfish networked brand so the registration process will likely be quite familiar to you and as there is no free money to be had without making a deposit, financial details are not required to sign up and play with the brand. It offers free bingo to non-depositing players from 7am until 7pm daily in the Free Bingo All room so you have the chance to “try before you buy”.
After registration your first port of call will be the bingo lobby and here is where you will notice a slight difference to the standard offerings from 888/Globalcom powered sites. Rather than the Free Bingo tab we are used to in the standard layout Iceland Specials takes it place. This is where you will find the Free Bingo All room but the remaining free games are different as the loyalty program is not the Bingo Friends Forever but the Iced Gems Club. If you reach Emerald, Sapphire, Red or Diamond levels in the loyalty program then you get access to additional free games in the Iced Games Club room every Tuesday and Saturday evening from 8pm until 9pm.
Iceland Bingo are clearly trying to stand out from the usual Dragonfish crowd and you’ll find a number of unique features in addition to the free bingo offering. There is also the Newbie Room where you can qualify for no lose bingo by making a deposit of at least £10 within seven days of registering with the brand.
However, whilst the site does boast unique features and is clearly making an effort to be different, when it comes to game play the offering from this brand is exactly the same as all other sites on the Dragonfish network. You’ll find 75 and 90 ball, the former in two different variants, alongside a whole plethora of instant win games and the chance to place Side Bets on your bingo game. There’s always plenty to keep you entertained at sites on this network.
The number of brands and players using the 888/Globaclom software already prove that this software is popular and Iceland Bingo is likely to be one of the most popular brands on the network just because of the brand awareness and audience that they can already reach by advertising on their home shopping site.
