Advertorials Underfire From ASA

Advertising Standards Authority

Advertorials
Upset ASA

If you haven’t already figured it you, here at Playing Bingo we advertise online bingo sites. We do so by providing our readers details of promotions and various updates on software, new bingo sites and general news from the world of online gaming. In all the years we have been doing this, we have done it with honesty, integrity and first and foremost as players ourselves. Some other advertisers are far less scrupulous as the Advertising Standards Authority recently revealed.

All advertisers are bound by BCAP and CAP codes and face a virtual slap on the wrists if they break the rules. It would seem that some pay no regard to the codes, or have any morals in promoting online gambling.

888 Fined For Responsible Gambling Error

Thursday, Sep. 7th 2017 7:06 AM

888 Fine

UKGC Fine
888 £7.8M

A few months ago now I started receiving emails from Security at Cassava telling me my accounts had been closed at a number of different bingo sites on the Dragonfish network. The same happened with all sites powered by the same software. I thought at the time they were doing what had happened with other players, that I was being banned for what they consider to be bonus abuse.

This was not the case, and when I started receiving emails from them requesting bank details, I asked what was going on. It turns out that when I closed my 888 Poker account a few years ago, 888 should have closed all associated accounts.

Foxy Bingo Luckiest On £200K Jackpot Games

Thursday, Mar. 24th 2016 7:19 AM

§Avid fans of the online bingo game will know that to date we have seen a total of three linked games that each offered an impressive £200K jackpot, the last of which only played at the end of February. What they may not know is that to date, Foxy Bingo is the brand that has produced the most winners from the three games.

That said, the biggest prize won to date on the £200K jackpot games was at Red Bus Bingo on the first of the games back in May 2015. One player landed the coverall prize of £100,000 at that site, the Foxy Bingo wins have totaled slightly more at £115,000 over the three games.

Easter Bingo Rolls Onto The Scene

Saturday, Mar. 19th 2016 7:23 AM

When it comes to churning out new bingo sitesit tends to be a two horse race between Dragonfish and Cozy Games. We think Dragonfish take the title of ‘Most Time Specific Branding’ whilst Cozy tend to bag the “Tenuous Link To Bingo Branding” title. The latest to roll onto the screen from the former is Easter Bingo, and what great timing!

This year Good Friday falls on 25th, Easter Sunday is 27th and Easter Monday on 28th March – that’s four whole days that Easter Bingo is relevant! But what then? What is is that they operators think the site offers to the end user, you the player, that is enough to keep you coming back for more?

8 Ball Games Increased Wagering Requirements

Brown Cow Bingo
Latest 8 Ball Site

Over the last couple of days we have been performing a mammoth task here at Playing Bingo, amending each and every bonus page of EVERY brand that uses the 888 / Cassava software to power their bingo games. The reason for this is the recent changes to the bonus rules at all sites under the Cassava hat. Needless to say, this meant visiting every site and checking the Terms and Conditions, something your average bingo player is unlikely to do.

During these checks we noticed something rather interesting, all of the brands that are under the 8 Ball Games hat, the sites that choose not to be advertised by affiliates, all have higher than standard wagering requirements for the bingo bonuses that they give to players!

888 Sites Plan Another £200,000 Giant Jackpot

Friday, Aug. 14th 2015 7:50 AM

It was only a few months ago that all the sites on the 888 software joined forces and hosted one of the biggest jackpots ever seen with £200,000 up for grabs, and now it’s been announced that they are doing it all again in September with tickets up for grabs right now.

The jackpot will be hosted across many sites that use the 888 software, so whether you play 888Ladies, Iceland Bingo or many of the others, you may well be able to join in the game. Although the game isn’t playing until late September you’ll want to be quick on the draw as there are limited tickets available.

Dragonfish Brands Get A New Look

Saturday, Jun. 6th 2015 7:20 AM

Bingo Ballroom is one of the most established Dragonfish networked brands available online and as such, the home page had started to look quite dated. Where other brands appeared to have far more aesthetically pleasing designs, Bingo Ballroom looked like it hadn’t been shown any love for quite some time. Recently that changed, a change that came about when 888 took over the running of the brand (along with Daisy Bingo, Bingo Hearts and their new site TRex Bingo).

The dancing duo who used to adorn the home page have been replaced with a selection of bingo balls in their best bib and tucker. There’s certainly more pizzazz about the landing page at Bingo Ballroom now and it’s definitely more appealing to the end user, the bingo player.

888 Sites Boast £200K Jumbo Jackpot

Thursday, Apr. 30th 2015 7:57 AM

How do you fancy taking a chance on winning a life-changing jackpot of £100,000? Or at least taking a share of a community jackpot worth £100,000? If that sounds appealing that you’ll want to read on about the £200,000 Jumbo Jackpot that all of the 888 standalone sites have to offer at the end of May! And, if the jackpot wasn’t impressive enough, a ticket will only cost you £1.

There are several brands, including Wink Bingo, that will all be selling tickets for this game but it’s worth noting that 888 have capped the number of tickets available to be sold at 600,000. Each site is able to sell their players just a maximum of 48 for the Jumbo Jackpot game but imagine the profit for 888 if all 600,000 sell?
