Raw Bingo Review - Site Reviews
In March 2016 Raw Bingo closed to players. The following details are for information purposes only and will no longer be updated.
Raw Bingo joined the Live Bingo Network and opened its doors to players on 31st October 2014. When we landed at the site for the first time we were immediately reminded of Andy Warhol thanks to the colourful and completely unusual design of this online bingo brand. Raw Bingo is the second Raw brand to launch, there is already Raw Casino which boasts a very similar design.
As with all brands on the Live Bingo network, the site is powered by the Cozy Games software which means you will be offered the most variety when it comes to bingo games. Raw Bingo has no less than five different bingo games to offer with the American 75 ball pattern games, the traditionally English 90 ball games, shutterboard or cashline 80 ball, speed games which are 30 ball and also 50 ball games.
To start playing at the site you first need to register an account. This is a three-step process starting with choosing a username, entering your full name and email and choosing your password. If there is a no deposit required bonus offered at the time that you register you need to ensure you include your financial details at registration, it is at this point that it will be added to your account.
As with most brands, your first port of call is the lobby and it is here that you will see the array of games that the site has to offer. There’s also an abundance of information available to see, all of which will help you make a decision as to the room that best suits your needs. There are details of the number of players in each room, the ticket price, the pot prize and a little information about any progressives available in each individual room.
When you have chosen a room simply click the ‘Started / Play Now’ button to enter. In the rooms you will find the usual Cozy Games layout with the Raw Bingo design. With a white background it is far easier to see what is going on at this site. Your game purchasing options can be found at the left hand side of the screen. In the centre of the screen are your bingo tickets with the game details above (prize breakdown and pattern). To the right of the screen is your chat room where you can interact with other players (if the host on duty hasn’t got smiley Tourettes or patronised everyone by calling them hunni and luv).
Promotions are limited to those offered by the network but if you’re keen to get a good deposit bonus, it’s certainly the site for you. The offers do tend to be focused to players who wager the most or win the most with little (nothing) offered to keep a low roller coming back just for the promotional deals.
Raw Bingo has a great look to it but sadly it is just a Cozy Games site. This means that all of the usual issues that we find infuriating are present.
