It's time for another round up of bingo sites that have debuted here on Loquax's bingo channel. We missed out December as we got a little bit sidetracked with advent and festive promotions, but this month there's a replacement for News of the World Bingo, a change for Daily Mail Bingo and a couple of new sites brought to you by the letter B.
Our headline newbie for this round-up is Fabulous Bingo. This is the sister site to The Sun Bingo and is related to the Fabulous Magazine supplement that appears in the paper. It used to appear in the News of the World - but we all know what happened there! The site is geared up for successful times. There's £5 free for new players and regular prize promos - well worth a look if you're into bingo and fashion!
A couple of sites said goodbye towards the end of 2011. Ask Bingo on the St Minver network ended their short foray into the bingo world, whilst another St Minver site - Daily Mail Bingo - shut it's doors too. Instead they've partnered with the Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity money raising site Pink Ribbon Bingo. Not entirely a new site, but worth a mention.
A site that is new is Benidorm Bingo. This is a new addition to Crown's Best Bingo Network and is the official bingo site of the Benidorm TV show. We're not overly impressed with this site and the fate of Ask Bingo demonstrates that sticking a brand name onto something doesn't turn it into a success. You do have the chance to win a holiday at Benidorm Bingo, but that's probably all that's worth going for!
Another new site is Butlers Bingo. They offer £10 free no deposit bingo to new players as well as a 300% deposit bonus. They offer bingo on a silver platter although the butler on the site does look uncannily like Rhett Butler. If only the sidekick on the site was called Scarlet and not Astrid! Still, it's a decent looking site and the independent software gives bingo players a nice alternative.
2012 promises more excitement in terms of new bingo sites. We're hoping to see more unique sites rather than rehashed versions of what we already know. Whether that's possible in today's economic climate and within the current bingo landscape remains to be seen.
