The battle for festive bingo hearts and minds is on with the arrival of yet another Christmas themed site. Following in the snow prints of Season Bingo is the better named Jingle Bingo. This bright and cheery offering brightens the cold December evenings with images of Santa and Rudolph but is it really the merriest place to play online?

Jingle Bingo is the latest addition to the 888 camp, which seems to show no sign of slowing down in adding new recruits. It also shows no sign of offering players anything different or exclusive. Jingle is essentially a standard Dragonfish Network brand with a nice fancy grotto attached to it.
New players to Jingle are welcomed with a 300% bonus. This is split 50/50 with bingo and side games so watch out for the wagering conditions as they differ. New players do get limited access to some no deposit free games - but you will need to become a depositor to access all the rooms and get involved with the various promotions and games.
Among those promotions are Sure Win, Grab A Grand, Refer A Friend and the Monday Happy Hour. The latter offers a 100% reload bonus to all players between 4pm and 6pm. In addition you'll also find regular 75 and 90 ball games as well as various slots.
Like Season Bingo, it may well be that Jingle Bingo has a limited shelf life. However the throwaway themed site for short periods does seem to be a growing trend. That's fine as long as the site in the spotlight delivers something exciting and new - and sadly Jingle doesn't quite hit the mark.
Furthermore the festive theme only reaches the front page and that's an issue we think these new 888 sites need to address. As is Jingle offers the excitement of Christmas and plenty of potential, but inside there's not enough festivities to enjoy.
