Carboot Bingo Review
The Live Bingo Network on the Cozy Games platform continues to grow and the list of new additions doesn't seem to show signs of ending. The problem with this is that differentiating between them is a tough job, but could the latest arrival be about to stand out from the crowd? Carboot Bingo has the look and feel of it's sister sites but it claims to be "The UK's 1st Virtual Goods Bingo Game"!
Carboot Bingo is owned by BingoShare a company founded by Lawrence Gouett. Lawrence is well known in the industry and was the man behind Game Village. This makes us quite excited for this new site. The concept behind it is that sometimes people pick up items from a Carboot Sale which turn out to be valuable - so virtual items in a bingo scenario could also do the same. More on that in a moment.
Bonus Spins On Fluffy Favourites
Fundamentally Carboot Bingo is a standard Live Bingo Network brand. It offers new players access to a free bingo room for the first seven days after registation. Winnings are paid as bonuses and are payable up to a maximum of £20 when you make a first deposit. Unlike other LBN brands though, Carboot does offer an alternative welcome offer - deposit £10 to get a £20 bonus (200%) plus 20 Fluffy Favourite spins. Regular depositors get to spin the Fortune Wheel for extra bonuses. Wagering terms apply.
Inside the site you have a mobile and tablet ready platform which offers a good range of 30, 75, 80 and 90 ball games alongside a suite of slots and casino games. There's free bingo for those who enjoy it as well as a massive range of network promotions. Usually this is the cut off for most sites on this network.
The Carboot element though makes this site different. Players can set up a shop (or carboot sale) and collect, sell and redeem virtual goods with other players. The virtual goods conceal hidden prizes so the aim is to unearth a real gem - just like a normal sale. Every item has the chance to be a big cash prize.
It's an interesting idea although we do wonder how players will react. In many respects it's simply a clever reward scheme but virtual currencies and gifts are popular in social media so why not try it in bingo? According to reports this is the first of a number of sites from BingoShare so it'll be exciting to see what other offers they have for players.
