Ready Set Bingo Review - Site Reviews
In June 2014 we noticed that Ready Set Bingo had undergone a makeover and with the redesign, dropped their affiliate program leaving us unable to promote their brand any longer. For this reason we have directed our players to another brand on the same network offering the same gaming experience.
Ready Set Bingo launched onto the bingo scene in 2010, using software from Cozy Games and as part of the Live Bingo Network, but if you were put off by the high wagering requirements and large minimum withdrawal amounts when it launched, we're here to tell you that the network has made many changes, making it a pretty playable bingo site these days.
Squeal into the Ready Set Bingo homepage, slam on the brakes and you'll be welcomed with a racing theme and chequered flags on what is a fairly bright and appealing homepage, if a little low on graphic richness.
When you do sign up, it's a quick process and signing up is easy, what's more, you don't have to register a payment method until you are ready to make a deposit, and that will give you a chance to try out all the games for free, before you part with your hard-earned cash.
One thing we will give the Cozy Games software is that you will be spoiled for choice with the different bingo variants on offer. It really is a treat of a bingo site with 90-ball, 80-ball, 75-ball and 30-ball bingo on offer across a selection of bingo rooms. All of these rooms are accessible from the bingo lobby and that displays within your browser, so it's as user-friendly as it possibly could be. From the lobby you can see the next games, ticket price and how many players are in the room, just click the room to enter and the bingo client will launch. Be aware that although ticket purchasing will be open for the next game, you won't be able to see how much the tickets are until the current game ends, and you could get caught out here if it's a pricey game next. The bingo interface isn't as quite as sleek as you might see at other, bigger sites but it's perfectly acceptable bingo. Cards take up centre stage, and the tickets are clear and easy to see. Ticket purchasing is to the left of the screen and it's all pretty simple and easy to use. Chat is to the right of the screen, and here's our first big complaint, talking to the chat hosts is like when you try and complain about one of your household services and end up getting through to a foreign call centre where no one understands a word. The chat hosts are addicted to smileys, and sadly there is no way to play dark (close chat).
Ticket prices do start from just a penny, and this should make your money stretch for miles, but if you're more into big jackpots than budget bingo there are plenty of those too. Many of the bingo rooms have their own progressive jackpots, and there are pre-buys and specials up for grabs too if you keep an eye on the promotions page.
Once area that Ready Set Bingo really does excel is with their mini games, slots, jackpot slots, casino games, instants and arcade games feature here and they feature by the bucket load. There are more instant win games than you can shake a stick at, with big jackpots, play from just a penny and some great graphics.
We may not have spoken fondly of the Cozy Games software in the past, but this has been mainly down to high wagering requirements and a difficult withdrawal process. But someone on this network has been listening, and much has been improved. Now Ready Set Bingo is a pretty good bingo site, but if they wanted to make any more improvements, they could look at their chat team!
