Ignite, the group led by Costa Bingo, started April 2015 in similar fashion to previous months - by launching yet another new brand. Joining recent additions of Giant and Dino is the slightly more whimsical Sparkly Bingo. It was a strange looking site with characterised bingo balls in a cloud city welcoming you in.

These characters included a unicorn, a helicopter bingo ball, and one which we think was called Candy. To be honest it was all a bit fluffy with the clouds and jewels scattered around and a world away from Dino and Giant. However, The UKGC stepped in and Sparkly's sparkle has all been but oblitarated. A pile of jewels is all that's left to reflect the brand's identity.
Dissection of the look of the site apart, what is there at Sparkly Bingo to make players take a look. Well not a lot that we've not seen before from the other brands released onto this expanding network. There's a free bingo room plus a welcome offer. See above for the latest promotion and wagering terms.
Free bingo is open to non depositors and depositors. Plus there's the weekly £5000 free Friday game. In Sparkly's case it's called Lovely Loot although you do have to remember that it's linked across up to a dozen sites now. There are 1p games to enjoy with Pretty Pennies and guaranteed pots in daily Stardust games. For those of you who like bigger prizes there's also a jackpot game daily at 9pm. Prizes range from Sparkly Points to Diamonds to cash.
For those who love slots then you're offered the usual mix from a Cassava/888/Dragonfish powered site. The top titles include Millionaire Genie, Fluffy Favourites, Irish Luck, Piggy Payout and White Wizard. We'd like to see these pages be tailored towards the brand - so things like Bejeweled and Fluffy Favourites should feature more heavily than say Jack Hammer 2.
Sparkly Bingo may appeal to players who like their bingo with a bit of fluff and a few jewels thrown in for a good measure. It's not our favourite looking site from the recent additions to the Ignite Network and we so want to see something new in terms of games or promotions. As yet Sparkly doesn't have any prize exclusives but that may well change in the coming months.
