Think Bingo Review
I know where all the girls go and that is Think Bingo if you're to believe the various sponsor clips that used to appear during The Jeremy Kyle Show back in the day. Think Bingo have been around since 2004 and to a point were the longest running standalone UK bingo site. Originally an independent company, Herotech, they became part of Cashcade's group of bingo sites which initially helped keep them at the cutting edge of online bingo. So how are they getting on now?
The demise of the Think Bingo brand is one of online bingo's biggest travesties. Once the Jeremy Kyle sponsorships and TV ads dried up, Think Bingo was pretty much cast aside under Foxy's shadow. In 2017 the site had a much needed makeover but that makeover has simply led the brand to become a clone of other sites, such as Little Big, Rollover and Graces', on the Cashcade Network. Way to go at sucking all the life out of a brand and turning it into mush!
Free Bingo For Thinking Newbies
New players are welcomed to the new look Think Bingo with a 200% first deposit bonus. A minimum deposit of £10 is required and the maximum bonus is £100. Wagering terms apply but surprisingly it's not readily clear what this is for Think. Usually it's x2 or x4 for bingo bonuses - but do let us know if you can locate on site!
At Think you'll find plenty of different rooms to try. These include free rooms such as Free Thinkers and Thinking Newbies. The latter is open to non-depositing players - at least for a limited period of time. Joining these free rooms are 75 ball and 90 ball games plus a recent addition of a 52 ball game called Sugar Works (also known as Candylicious on the Dragonfish Network).
Community used to be at the heart of the original Think Bingo. In fact they, alongside Bingo Scotland, were one of a few sites that used to run a forum - long before the days of Facebook. Sadly the forum has gone, but so has the sense of community. There is a Think Bingo FB page - with just 144 followers. The low number isn't exactly a surprise given that there's no link to the group from the Think Bingo site!
On a more positive note, the recent changes to Think have meant it does offer more promotions, albeit that they're shared with other Cashcade brands. These network promos include BOGOF games, penny bingo and special jackpots for those players who play late at night/early morning. We think that the days of exclusive rooms, jackpots and prizes may be long gone though.
I Know Where All The Girls Go
In 2007, Think Bingo was named as Which Bingo's site of the year. This prompted the arrival of the famous "I Know Where All The Girls Go" advert in 2008. Almost a decade on and we can answer the question... sadly all the girls no longer go to Think. It offers nothing that's standalone, nothing for the community and nothing to make you think you wish to return.
Of course not all new players will be concerned by the site's history - and it's present day offering is as good as any other Dragonfish powered brand. For us though it's a shell of it's original premise and that is a big disappointment.
