Online Bingo Review - Site Reviews
As of 1st November 2014 all sites offering bingo to UK players had to have a licence under the UK Gambling Commission. Currently Online Bingo.eu do not hold such a licence so are unable to actively promote their brand.
Online Bingo is a Europe-facing online bingo site from the little known One Stop Gaming group, from Frelix Entertainment. If the software is popular across Europe then we don’t know about it (although it looks very similar to that provided by Parlay Entertainment), and it’s all fairly new to us as we hit the homepage. The homepage is quite plain and functional, and the site has no overriding theme as some other bigger sites do. That said, it’s easy to navigate and there’s plenty of information about what’s going on around site and featured games and promotions.
Signing up for a new account is one of the easiest processes we’ve ever found and Online Bingo asks very little personal information, but you will have to register an email address as you’ll need to follow the link through there to verify your identity. When we play, this link takes us to a spin the wheel screen where we earn a no-deposit bonus, there are then further deposit bonuses if you decide to make a deposit at the site.
Then we’re ready to hit the bingo rooms and the first thing we notice is that the pages are a little slow to load, patience does pay off though and we’re browsing the bingo rooms. There are only three rooms available during our visit and none of them are all that busy with just 41 players across all three rooms during our visit. We head into the rooms anyway and buy some tickets, and the interface itself seems ok. There aren’t any bustling chat rooms and we can’t find a host, in fact the rooms are ghostly quiet and we can only hope that changes as more players sign up. The bingo screen is laid out with chat to the left and tickets to the right, and the tickets themselves are plain and easy on the eye. Our experience is pretty dull overall though, with no players online we don’t find we have much to play for, or much to hang around for, which is a shame because the gamescreen is pretty playable.
In addition to the bingo, Online Bingo has a casino section as most sites do now and when the screen finally loads, we can see that there’s plenty on offer. There are some big named slots, casino games and instant wins with plenty to choose from, although again we find the games take forever to load.
From here we head to the promotions page to see exactly what’s on offer and what we find is a selection of giveaways and promotions. They seem fairly generous with a player of the month award, weekly specials and more including free bingo and bonuses on every deposit at the site.
Overall we think that Online Bingo could be pretty great but our experience is quite dull due to low player numbers and empty bingo rooms. New bingo sites sometimes take a while to get on their feet but if you are looking for something a bit different, it could be worth the time to grab that spin the wheel bonus to see what’s on offer.
