Live Bingo Review - Site Reviews
When Live Bingo first launched into the world of online bingo the Virtue Fusion software powered it. In July 2013 this version of the site closed but shortly after is reappeared like a phoenix from the ashes, this time powered by the 888/Cassava software as part of the Dragonfish network. However, before you dismiss this as just another networked brand, you should note that this brand has standalone rooms, an exclusive welcome offer and unique promotions.
The home page of Live Bingo is a little bland in comparison with many others online today but to be honest, we quite liked it. Our retinas weren’t burnt by a gaudy colour scheme and a migraine wasn’t started thanks to an abundance of flashing banners. Our only suggestion, slow down the rotation of the main page advertisement.
As with all brands on the Dragonfish network it’s really simple to sign up and play with this site. The registration form is standard to the network and whilst there is a section for your financial details, this does not have to be completed at this point to play at Live Bingo. This is only a necessity if the site were offering free bonus cash at registration.
Once you have signed up and chosen a username you are taken to the Member Area and here you can access a number of tools. You can withdraw, deposit, convert your loyalty points, check your games played and deposits made and update your account information if required. To the right of the screen are posts from the sites Facebook page.
To get in on the bingo action you simply have to click Play Bingo and you are taken to the lobby, the main hive of activity at the site. You’ll notice that the design is certainly different when you step into the Live Bingo lobby. There’s the vertical navigation that we are used to from brands on this network but there are extra tabs, notably the Specials. In this section are the exclusive games offered by this brand.
When you visit the 75 and 90 ball tabs you will see that there isn’t quite as much information available as you would find in a standard Dragonfish lobby. Whilst you can see the ticket price, game type, number of players and time until next game, you cannot see the jackpot or name of the host. Additionally whilst the tabs are labelled 75 and 90, we found 75 games under the 90 ball tab!
It’s clear from your first visit to Live Bingo that they are trying to stand out from the crowd and with unique offers and promotions alongside the favourites from the network, players at this brand have the best of both worlds!
