Bingo Loft Review
Bingo Loft is the new name for Big Brother Bingo. The site - from 888 Holdings on the 888/Dragonfish platform - originally launched in 2011 and even at that time we had concerns about the brand and TV show tie in. Our fears about sustaining interest and marrying bingo to the series proved correct and in October 2015 Big Brother became Bingo Loft.
Bingo Loft joins the likes of Posh, Redbus, Tasty and Street in the 888 group of sites. Like it's sister sites it offers players everything from free bingo and 1p games through to guaranteed cash jackpots and the latest slots and scratchcards! In relation to the original Big Brother site there's not a lot of difference - just a few room name changes and a new logo.
New players are welcomed into The Loft with a 200% welcome bonus (£5 to £100). If you deposit £10 or more you're able to play the free Stairway To Swag game where you'll collect at least 50p more in bonus money. The maximum prize is £5. Wagering terms apply and in this case, Bingo Loft has a condition of "wager x2 the total amount of the deposit and bingo bonus funds". Reload bonuses are available but you need to enter the code shown on site for these to apply to your deposits.
Free bingo is available to newbies and no deposit is required. Just go to the Newbie Room after you've registered and have access to 7 days of free games. Note that the room is only open between 7pm and midnight and the prizes are rarely no more than £1. You would need to become a depositor to be able to withdraw any winnings.
If you do become a depositor then you'll find that Bingo Loft has a number of 75 and 90 ball rooms with progressives and other jackpots running throughout the day. For example in Cosy Night In you can play for £40 pots every hour from 3.30pm to 11.30pm at just 5p a ticket. Free games aren't just for new players though as Frolin' Free is accessible to all from 10am daily. Bargain hunters can play for pennies 24/7 in the Talk is Cheap room.
Bingo Loft is accessible via mobile, tablet and PC plus it offers a good selection of slots should you like to give that side of things a spin. Without the Big Brother label it doesn't really have anything extra to make it stand out from others on the same platform. The name change could prove to be a good thing though as it does remove the shackles - it just depends on whether 888 have plans to big up the brand like Wink and 888 Ladies or if it will be left to fester as it pretty much did under it's previous name.
