Sparkly Bingo Review - Site Reviews
In April 2015 the Mandalay Media/Intertain network added Sparkly Bingo to its repertoire of sites and it launched with some big welcome bonuses and offers. The homepage is inviting and friendly with lots of smiling bingo balls. Anyone who has played on a site on this network before may notice some similarities but there’s plenty to set it apart from the competition too!
The landing page is jam-packed full of offers and information from around the site including the latest big winners, big promotions and details of everything that’s happening around site! The first thing you’ll need to do is create an account and this is a really simple process that takes just a couple of minutes. If you wish to claim any bonuses on offer you will need to register a payment method but no money will be taken from your account unless you action a deposit. Sparkly Bingo accepts many payment methods including all major debit and credit cards, Neteller, Paysafe card and others, so everything really is designed for you, the customer.
Now you’ve got all the boring stuff out of the way you’ll be ready to play and if you hit that play button you’ll be transported to the bingo lobby and this is the hub of all the action! You’ll see a selection of games, bingo and side games from the lobby, which is really easy to navigate. The bingo rooms are laid out in tab format, you’ll land on free bingo first and of course that’s always welcome! There are two variants of bingo here, both traditional 90-ball and US 75-ball so you have some choice, though there isn’t the many bingo variants that some platforms are offering.
Once you’re in the room everything is really easy, from ticket purchasing to watching the game play, or even daubing yourself if you change the settings. Chat is pretty busy and there are plenty of players online during our visit and some pretty exciting jackpot prizes too! With free bingo on offer you never need to break the bank but even across the paid rooms, the tickets during our visit are only 5p and 10p, so it’s really easy to play within your budget. If it’s big jackpots you’re after there are plenty of those too including a £10,000 weekly game where the tickets are FREE for depositing players!
As this is a networked site, many of the bingo rooms are linked to other sites within this network, such as Rio Bingo, Giant Bingo and others, but the chat rooms are standalone and with standalone promotions too, Sparkly Bingo is doing plenty to ensure that they keep a unique selling point for players.
If you like the bingo then you may also like the range of slots, instant wins and casino games that Sparkly Bingo has on offer. These are accessible either from the bingo lobby or above the chat box while your game is in play. The side games play really well and like the bingo offer play options for all budgets, with some big jackpots too!
As mentioned, the Mandalay site are networked but they do have standalone promotions and these offer some pretty good giveaways so it’s always worth keeping an eye on the promos page to see what’s being given away every month.
Overall we’re pretty impressed with this sparkly offering from the Mandalay Group, though players who are already signed up to several sites on this network may have different considerations about adding yet another. While the brand works hard to keep each site individual, it is something that is going to become more difficult as the number of brands on the network grows.
