Gone Bingo Review
Gone Bingo were named New Site of the Year 2007 in the Which Bingo Awards and back then they claimed to be the fastest growing online bingo hall in UK! Their site also boasts over 1 million bingo cards sold daily and it is part of the Cozy Games Best Bingo Network. Gone has always been the flagship of The BBN but in recent times it's been joined by more and more stable mates.
New players to Gone Bingo are offered access to a newbies room for 7 days of free bingo - no deposit needed. Although you can play up to £3000 worth of games, the maximum winnings you can take from this room is £20 - and only after you've deposited. For depositors there's a 300% first deposit bonus followed by a 150% second & 100% third deposit bonus on the table. Wagering terms apply and usually starts at x8 wagering for the bingo product.
75 & 90 Ball Bingo
In the bingo section you have a choice of rooms such as Big Ben (90), Victoria (90) and Devoted Dabbers (75). Players can also enjoy 80 ball bingo in Down Town plus a 30 ball speed game in City Hall Game prices are reasonable with plenty of cheap games (1p, 2p and 5p). Progressive jackpots run in some rooms and all are accessible on mobile and tablet.
Gone Bingo boast a good selection of slots and casino games. Many of which can be played on desktop, tablet and mobile. An app isn't required either which makes life a little easier. Among the slot titles are Spinata Grande, Motorhead, Jimi Hendrix, Starburst and Guns N Roses. Many of these games were only added to the site in 2017 and their addition is more then welcome.
Gone Bingo Promotions
In days gone by Gone Bingo was the flagship brand of the Best Bingo Network. However, since Cozy Games was acquired by GVC towards the end of 2017 many things have changed. The BBN and Live Bingo Network are pretty much one and the same. In addition, Foxy Bingo plus Cheeky and Think are the big boys on the block. Gone's position on this platform has all but gone.
This position is underlined by the promotions that now run at Gone and it's many sister brands. None have exclusives and they're all the same. These promotions include a £4000 Pay Day jackpot, bonus codes and prize draws. Some promos are for bingo whilst some are for slots. Sadly Gone no longer have a presence on Facebook!
Our initial review of Gone Bingo said that "it provides a good place to enjoy bingo and slots but it's now lost in a stable of sites rather standing out as the place to go for Cozy Games". That still stands and then some now that Foxy and co are on the same platform. We know that closures are imminent on the Cozy platform but it'd be a big surprise if Gone was one of the brands to go.
The £3000 free bingo trial is a good enough reason to take a look at Gone. Beyond that unfortunately it's just the same as a bunch of other brands. The lack of exclusives, community and the fact that Foxy gets all the good stuff now does put the Sword of Damocles over the future of Gone and indeed others using Cozy Games.
