T Rex Bingo Review
T Rex Bingo
In 2015 and following hot on the footsteps of Dino Bingo, came T Rex Bingo. Surprisingly this isn't another brand from the Costa camp but it is in fact a new addition to the 888 group which is headed up by Wink and 888 Ladies. T Rex was joined by another three sites - Ballroom, Daisy and Hearts.
At launch, T Rex Bingo featured a purple dinosaur that looked a little bit Barney-esque. Gambling laws mean that he's had to go and so T-Rex is now dinorsaurless! That's probably a good thing as people will probably be put off by more realistic dino images and activity. In fact, the loss of "Rex" is the only real change at this site since it arrived.
T-Rex Bingo Welcome Bonus
The problem with T Rex Bingo is that whilst it looks nice it's simply another Dragonfish Network room with little to offer in the way of new features. New players are offered a 300% welcome bonus on a deposit of £10. This bonus is probably the only thing that sets the brand apart from others already listed and reviewed here on Loquax. One thing to note about the bonus is that it's split £20 for bingo and £10 for games. Wagering terms will apply.
On the promotions page one would hope for something exciting to report but no there's not a lot going on other than the usual Daily Freebies, Jackpots and The Big One etc. Whilst Dino Bingo may also be a "network clone" it does actually offer players more in the shape of the £10,000 Friday game, reload bonuses and even a no deposit bonus.
An Old Fossil
We're just not sure about T Rex Bingo! It's not on the same level as Wink and we think 888 have got better brands to work with in the shape of Tasty and Posh. The dinosaur theme is great and tied in nicely with the release of Jurassic World a few years back, but for that to work (or be exploited) then T Rex needs to rustle up exclusives.
In our original review, we suspected "that Dino Bingo will be more on the ball and in the battle of reptilian brands". To be fair, neither T-Rex or Dino have made exciting inroads into bingo folklore. Unfortunately both sites launched under an umbrella of Jurassic World excitement - but a movie about dinosaurs doesn't equate to wanting to play bingo.
