Telly Talk Bingo Review - Site Reviews
Due to issues with the affiliate program for this brand we have chosen to redirect our readers to a site offering the same gaming experience.
In December 2013 Telly Talk Bingo made an appearance on the online bingo scene but with little fanfare and certainly no advertising on the small screen, something you might expect from a brand with this name. At the time of launch a popular TV program was Goggle Box, the format of which was people watching TV and chatting about what they were watching. The tag line of this brand is “Where bingo lovers talk telly” – could they have taken their inspiration from the format of Goggle Box?
When you land at the home page of Telly Talk Bingo you’ll find it quite minimalistic in comparison with many other brands on the Internet today with the welcome bonuses taking up the lions share of the landing page. There are details of the Community Jackpots (1TG and 2TG prizes) and reference to one of the big money games on offers too.
It was at registration that we became aware if the network and software being used. The registration form is standard to the Cashcade network. We were expecting issues at registration with our card registered at other brands at the network, but no – everything was pretty quick and easy with the usual information required. Within minutes we were ready to give the site a whirl.
Once you have clicked the ‘Play Now’ button your first visit is to the bingo lobby and instantly, if you have played at other sites on the network, you feel at home. There are five tabs – the usual 90 ball, 75 ball, pre-buy and instants where you will find the networked bingo offerings but there are also two standalone rooms. Under the Telly Talk tab you will find Drama Queens and Reality bites, two rooms with exclusive access to Telly Talk Bingo players.
The room layouts are standard to the network and the software is the popular 888/Cassava/Globalcom offering so you will definitely feel right at home in the rooms. There are two main game types available – 75 ball and 90 ball – but for 75 ball you have two options, pattern and multi-line games are available in the rooms at this site.
When it comes to jackpots Telly Talk Bingo has the same standard network offering as other brands; seven different pre-buy games a week, a selection of guaranteed jackpot games and two progressive jackpots. With reference to the promotions, these are also standard to the network. Save for the two standalone rooms, there is nothing new to see in the rooms of this site.
Sadly, whilst we didn’t have the registration issues found at other Cashcade networked brands there wasn’t enough unique about it to make us stick around. Although the site launched with an impressive £10 no deposit required bonus, by the time you read this, the chances are that it will have long gone!
