Rogers Bingo Review - Site Reviews
On 1st November 2015 Rogers Bingo closed to players. As the brand was on a proprietary software, we cannot offer you an alternative that offers the same gaming experience. However, we are happy to recommend our own brand, Tidy Bingo.
Rogers Bingo opened to players in summer 2011 and bought with it a new and exciting gaming experience using proprietary software, a bit of a rarity in the world of online bingo. With an impressive no deposit required welcome bonus, the brand soon attracted quite a number of players through their virtual doors and continues to do so.
The home page has quite a unique layout in so far as there is little mention of the bonuses but more a focus on the games that Rogers Bingo has to offer. Winners are shown alongside a list of Bingo Tournaments, Special Games and the Main Lobby for the site.
Registration to the site is pretty standard with the usual information required, although you are offered the option of uploading a profile picture that you don’t find at many brands online currently. Complete the whole process including uploading a picture, joining a group and creating a photo album to get more bonus money from Rogers Bingo. Although it was a little frustrating to find that you had to complete a few extra tasks to be awarded the no deposit bonus, it did only take a couple of moments to do so.
When you have completed the above you are then ready to play at Rogers Bingo. You’ll find the games lobby by clicking ‘Bingo’ from the main navigation at the top of the screen and you’ll find it a little different to what you may be used to. Games are listed in completely different sections to the 75/90/Free that you may be used to from other brands. Special Games are shown first and this is where the promotional games can be found. Bingo Tournaments are next, games that do not start until there are enough participating players. It is only then that you find the standard bingo games from the brand listed. The lobby shows details of the number of players, ticket prices, pot prize and time until the next game.
We chose our game, from the main lobby (90 Ball Blitz Bingo), purchased our tickets and waited for the game to start. The countdown to the game reached zero and then…..NOTHING! The countdown showed ‘Everyone get ready…..’ and then DELAYED and the counter reset to 2.21! Despite their being a chat host in the room who we asked to explain the delay, no response was offered. A visit to Live Help revealed that bingo games at Rogers Bingo do not start in many rooms until 10 players have purchased tickets, although they did say in the 90 ball UK bingo room only three players were required. If you play early in the morning as we did, you may find yourself waiting quite a while for the games to start.
The game room layout is substantially different to other products available online with many additional extras offered. You don’t have to search around for game options to amend the caller voice or sounds, auto daub and auto sort – it’s all available to the left of your screen. Ticket purchasing is simple with quick buy options of 5, 10, 20 or 40 or you can just click on the tickets you wish to purchase. The centre of the screen shows your bingo tickets with the game countdown above and the chat room is off to the left with prize details above along with a few of the instant win games available from Rogers Bingo.
Promotions with the brand see some pretty impressive prizes given away throughout the year but the biggest pull to the Rogers Bingo brand has to be the uniqueness of the product and how the games play (although you may find yourself waiting a while at certain times of the day).
There’s a lot going on with at the site and it may take you quite a while to get your head around all the different features Rogers Bingo has to offer but if you are looking for a site that puts a lot of emphasis on community whilst offering something a little more, it could well be the site for you.
