Starlight Bingo Review - Site Reviews
In September 2015 we were informed by the network that 'The problem with Starlight Bingo is that the partner is completely inactive. We tried to get in touch with him on numerous occasions but we haven't heard back from him at all.' It was suggested that we no longer actively promoted the brand so we have suggested an alternative on the same network.
Starlight Bingo launched on the Live Bingo Network in the summer of 2014 but will this bingo site launch you into the starlight, or is it a bit of a damp squib? We headed over there to try out the games and bingo, and find out!
The homepage of Starlight Bingo is ok to look at, it's a blue and pink colour theme with cartoony images of a rocketship and a hot air ballon, with plenty of stars too. We've seen sleeker homepages, but it's fine, easy to navigate and there's plenty of information to be found within, including details of the big sign up bonuses on offer!
The site uses software from Cozy Games and if you've played this software before you're likely to find things quite familiar. The sign up process is pretty standard to the software but do be aware that if you're signed up at any other Live Bingo Network sites you may have trouble because your username may already be in use!
Once you're signed up the fun starts and there's plenty of it with a huge selection of bingo rooms, ticket prices and bingo variants. At Starlight Bingo there's 90-ball, 80-ball, 75-ball and 30-ball bingo to choose from across a selection of rooms with ticket prices starting from just pennies. We don't find any dedicated free bingo, but with the sign up offers and bonuses you will have plenty of free cash to play with.
The software isn't quite as graphic-rich as some out there, but it's a playable interface nonetheless. Once you enter the bingo room you'll see tickets to the left of the screen and chat to the right. Select the number of tickets you want to buy, and keep an eye out for BOGOF offers as they are plentiful at Starlight Bingo with lots of free tickets on offer. The game plays ok, but chat soon gets very annoying and we can't see how to close it out. The chat hosts are among the worst we've ever encountered and this brand really lacks the community feel found at some other sites.
If you do want to try something other than bingo the side games at Starlight Bingo are actually pretty good and the selection would take some beating. You won't find many of the famous big named slots from other sites but there's a good selection all the same, plus a choice of table games, arcade games and instant wins ensuring there's never a dull moment at Starlight Bingo.
The promotions at Starlight Bingo are plentiful but when you look closely you'll see that many of them depend on high wagering or are bonus based without the random prize draws that many players love so much.
Starlight Bingo isn't really 'space-age' but it's an acceptable and playable bingo brand with a good selection of bingo rooms, plenty of side games and big bonuses to be claimed. If you're already a member at another site on the network it's likely to be a hassle to get started, but if not then Starlight Bingo is probably worth a look just for the free bingo bonus.
