Bingo Loft Review
Bingo Loft originally started life as Big Brother Bingo. The site - from 888 Holdings on the 888/Dragonfish platform - first 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 reality TV series proved correct and in October 2015 Big Brother Bingo adopted the title 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 (£10 to £100). Back in the day if you deposited £10 or more you could play a free Stairway To Swag game where at least 50p in bonus money was yours to claim. Sadly this promotion, which game Loft a bit of uniqueness, has now ended. 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 via the Wheel Of Wins.
As a newbie you can give Bingo Loft a try with some no deposit free bingo. The Newbie Room is open daily between 7pm and 10pm. New players may access this room, with no deposit required, for 3 days only. Inside the room you can play 75 ball games for bonuses and points. Given that the 90 ball game is the popular option for UK sites it does seem a little strange to encourage new players to the platform with 75 ball games.
Bingo & Slots
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. These have recently been joined by Bingo Roulette which is a 52 ball version. Regular players have access to more free bingo including Free For Everyone and The Monday £1000. Note that many of the Bingo Loft rooms are networked with other brands on Dragonfish.
Like other Dragonfish sites you will find a good selection of top slots to enjoy at Bingo Loft. These include Dancing On Ice, Slingo, Starburst and Millionaire Genie. These days you rarely see any exclusive promotions for either bingo or slots on Bingo Loft. This means you're left with network offers like Mystery Jackpots and The Big £10K. Note that all these games and offers can be access via mobile, desktop and tablet.
As Big Brother Bingo this site had the potential to really establish itself. However, despite it's moniker the site had relatively nothing to do with the programme. In fact we can only recall one or two occasions when it offered tickets to see the evictions. The name change to Bingo Loft hasn't made much difference to the site as in many respects - like a lot of things in the attic - it's been forgotten about.
When we last reviewed Bingo Loft (October 2015) we mentioned that it's future "depends on whether 888 have plans to big up the brand like Wink and 888 Ladies". Thankfully Bingo Loft is still with us but why play there? The platform is sound and we like the free bingo options. The welcome offer to be fair though is the main incentive.
