Snowy Bingo Review
Not content with watching Intertain churn out a host of brands on the Dragonfish Network, during 2015 888 decided that they'd join the party. Therefore we saw the arrival of Jingle, Spy, T-Rex, Daisy and others to join the likes of Tasty, Wink and Posh. At the time we thought that Jingle would be their festive offering but a busy year of new releases saw the arrival of Snowy Bingo!
In our review of 2015 we said that the seasonal or "in the news" type brands were a strange direction for bingo to go in. The festive themed Season and Jingle sites kind of made sense but the arrival of Spy and T-Rex launched to celebrate Spectre and Jurassic World respectively surely have limited interest? We had a similar view of Snowy and still do! What will come next week we wonder? Rainy? Windy? Slightly Cold But The Sun Is Shining? Who Knows?
New players to Snowy Bingo are welcomed with a 300% bonus up to £105. This bonus is split 2/1 with bingo and slots. So with a £10 deposit you get £20 for bingo and £10 for slots. Wagering terms apply and these are x4 (deposit + bonus) for bingo and x80 for games. The latter is high but compared to other Dragonfish sites which can be as high as x99 it's reasonable. The one positive for Snowy is that the minimum deposit to receive the bonus is just £5.
There is a no deposit offer for new players. Register and login to access the Daily Doozey for three days. Inside this room you'll be able to play free bingo games for the chance to win bonuses. These bonuses will attract wagering terms. Other free bingo rooms are available but you'll need to be a regular depositor to qualify for these particular games. Free bingo rooms include Quids In, On The House and Freebie.
As a Dragonfish Networked site Snowy Bingo gives you access to the usual 75 and 90 ball bingo rooms. These rooms are joined by a 52 ball playing card game and 52 ball bingo roulette. Additionally there are daily jackpot games plus a couple of free games including the £250 Sunday Sizzle and £1000 Magical Monday. The biggest game takes place at 10pm on the 10th of every month and is called The Big £10K. This is an invite only game where everyone's a winner!
The Big £10K is just one of the main promotions at Snowy Bingo. Other popular offers include Mystery Jackpots, The 2 Million Race and The Late Night Show. You won't find anything exclusive at Snowy Bingo. There are however plenty of top slots and instant win games. Amongst the games provided by Eyecon, Netent and Slingo you will find Starburst, Fluffy Favourites and Millionaire Genie. Most games and bingo rooms are accessible via mobile, tablet and desktop.
There's no business like snow business but Snowy Bingo doesn't quite warm up our bingo cockles. We like the free bingo and it's nice to be able to give things a try with the Daily Doozey. The welcome offer is reasonable and we especially like the minimum deposit of £5. Many bingo brands require a minimum of £10 before they give you a bonus. The games within the Snowy Bingo lobby are varied but they - like the many promotions - are networked and not exclusive.
In our view there are better brands on Dragonfish such as Wink, Costa and 888 Ladies. These offer pretty much all the above but have more in terms of promotions and updates. However if you like the idea of walking in a winter wonderland throughout the year then Snowy might be the brand for you.
