Back in 2014 the trend in bingo was to churn out site after site. We saw multiple additions to The Live Bingo Network, 15 Marketing and Virtue Fusion. The Ignite camp, which houses the likes of Costa and Sing, even joined in this trend. 2015 was expected to follow suit - and it did - with Ignite kicking off the year by launching Giant Bingo.

When Giant Bingo launched it was overlooked by Finn who stood astride the backdrop like a colossus Mel B when she was with Costa Bingo. Unfortunately Finn has gone, filed under The UKGC appeals to children section. However the site still looks decent. It has a "lucky Irish" feel to it too with pots of golds, lucky shamrocks, a rainbow and what we think may be The Giants Causeway. How lomg they remain we don't know as The UKGC now hate rainbows as much as giants. For now though, that Irish feel is no coincidence!
Finn Of The Giants Causeway
According to Irish legend, a giant called Finn McCool was responsible for building The Giants Causeway. Finn is described by Causeway Coast and Glens as a 54 foot tall giant who was responsible for the creation of The Isle of Man. The causeway was built so that Finn could take on a rival in Scotland called Benandonner. We have to say we're quite impressed with Giant for this tie in!!
But what about the bingo? Well it uses the Dragonfish/Cassava platform so that means the standard 75 and 90 ball games you'll find on a lot of sites. New players are welcomed with a first deposit bonus - see above for details and wagering terms.
Free Bingo Academy
Finn does offer free bingo some of which is open to non-funded players. Depositors get access to extra games including the 5 x £1000 games that play every Friday. Yes it's the same game that every other site on the network pretty much has so sadly it's nothing new. In fact sadly there's nothing new to say about Giant. The slots are as you'd expect with Fluffy Favourites, Piggy Payout, Cleopatra and Enchanted Prince amongst the usual options.
There's also the usual Diamond Club loyalty programme, a VIP player section and daily jackpots. Sadly we can't get too excited about them as we've seen them all before. When we first review Giant we had hoped that it would have it's own promotions - sadly that's never materialised.
A Giant Of A Site?
Overall we love the fact that Giant Bingo have put together a brand with an interesting back story. Whether players "get it" remains to be seen, but it's a great looking site. For us as reviewers it's a tad too samey though once you shift Finn to the site and that's a shame as it deserves a lot more. We had hoped Giant would become big in the bingo world but sadly it's always going to be dwarfed by more established brands.
