Beacon Bingo are the latest offline bingo halls to come online. They're using the increasingly popular Virtue Fusion software to bring the fun of their halls in Brighton, Cricklewood, Loughborough, Lowestoft, Northampton and Streatham to a wider online bingo audience.
The Beacon Bingo site initially looks fairly basic, but before you know it you're suddenly joined by online manager Chris Drake and TV presenter Emma Morton Smith who are on hand to explain all to you. This is one of the unique features of Beacon. It gives the site a homely feel, but we'd like to see more regular news updates and promotions rather than the same welcome message.
For new players Beacon offer a 100% deposit bonus of up to £250, but if you join them on Facebook after you've registered you will find free bonus codes and their free bingo app! As well as the free bingo game on Facebook, Beacon have a free bingo session every Sunday in the Cricklewood room at 8.30pm.
As the video above will demonstrate Beacon Bingo has all the usual favourites associated with a Virtue Fusion bingo room. There are BOGOF and penny bingo games, Bingo 90 and 75 ball games, BingoLinx jackpots and side games.
We'd like to see more exclusive promotions featured on the site like prizes, but it does seem most of the community activity is taking place on Facebook.
