Angry Bingo Review
Network building was the operative theme for online bingo in 2014. The Live Bingo Network and 15 Marketing were rapidly adding new assets to their roster but following behind them were Mandalay Media (also known as Ignite and Intertain). They'd been happy with their flagship brand of Costa Bingo plus the likes of Fancy, City and Sing. However in 2014 they upped their game and their stable mushroomed. This saw the launch of several different sites, also on the Dragonfish platform, including Angry Bingo - a nod to the then popularity of Angry Birds!
Introducing Angry Bingo
If you visit Angry Bingo today (April 2020) you'll not get the Angry Birds reference. At launch the site featured some quite irate bingo ball characters and a bingo balled shaped pig. In 2017, the fun police put an end to the presence of cartoon characters on bingo sites and now Angry Bingo has a mountain scene as a backdrop to create Non-Angry Bingo! The site, which boasts "Bonkers Bingo, Mighty Jackpots", is accessible on desktop, mobile and tablet. Players don't need to download an app to Apple or Android devices to access the site.
Angry Bingo Welcome Offer
Register at Angry Bingo, login and then deposit £10 and you will receive 120 free bingo tickets. These free bingo tickets can only be used in selected rooms: Ticket To Ride (75), Just The Ticket (75), Golden Ticket (90) and Choo Choo Ticket (5 Line). The rooms are open from 10am to midnight daily and winnings are paid as real cash. No wagering terms apply. Further free tickets are offered on your second and third Wish Bingo deposits. Over £1500 is paid out daily in these rooms but remember they are shared with other sites in the same group such as Wish, Farmyard, Rio and Wish.
Another room that's shared with it's sister sites is The Bingo Academy. This is a free bingo room that's open for two days after registration with no deposit needed. The room is also open for five days after your first deposit. Every 15 minutes you can play a 90 ball real cash game. Play for 25p for 1L, 50p for 2L and £1 for the full house. It's not exactly big money but it does give you a flavour of what to expect. Withdrawal terms apply so you will need to deposit before you can take out any winnings that arise from these games. As with the welcome offer though no wagering terms will apply to these winnings.
Angry Bingo Promotions
Angry Bingo offers players access to four different versions of the popular numbers game. Login to the lobby to find 75 ball, 5 Line, 90 Ball and 52 ball versions of bingo. There are plenty of bargain bingo games as well as extra freebies for depositors. Angry also offers access to daily jackpot games. As mentioned above these have inspirational titles! Raging Riches for example plays at 9pm every Thursday and gives you the chance to win a share of £500. Meanwhile Cash Bomb takes place on a Sunday and is free to play if you have deposited at Angry Bingo in the last 6 days. Play at 9pm on a Tuesday and you could win up to 500 free spins in the Free Spin Fury game.
As well as the bingo rooms, Angry Bingo also has a fabulous selection of slots and instants. These aren't highlighted as much as on many other sites, but there are easily accessible via the lobby - on both mobile and PC. Highlighted games include Pigasus, Fireworks Frenzy, Shopping Spree, Irish Luck, Pay Of The Dead, Lost Island and Jewel Journey. The slots are joined by progressive jackpots and a handful of table games such as Deuces Wild, Lucky Keno and versions of blackjack and roulette.
At launch we described Angry as "an interesting looking site with a name that may pique interest". We also said that "on the downside there's not a lot new to get excited about and whilst that doesn't anger us, it does leave us just a little frustrated". In 2020 there's a bit more to get angry about: The site has lost it's theme and has reduced free bingo, prizes and jackpots. The Ignite group has numerous brands in it's stable and very few are now stand-out or offering exclusives.
However there are some positives. The no wagering terms on bonuses and free spins are good and the welcome offer quite generous. Players can also claim free tickets on second and third deposit bonuses, plus there's a further deposit offer on site. The latter includes play in the Fierce n Free room. Angry Bingo also still has a good selection of bingo rooms and jackpots. We would like to see exclusives and special offers for Angry Bingo players, but these are unlikely to happen. This isn't a fault of the site but just the way online bingo has developed over the last few years.
