Aunty Acid Bingo Review
When we first heard about Aunty Acid Bingo we initially thought that perhaps brands were really struggling for new names for their sites. We then spotted that Aunty Acid had a partner, Walt, and thought that perhaps online bingo had gone Breaking Bad. However, behind this new site is in fact a very special pair - one that was voted craziest partnership on the internet in 2013.
Aunty Acid is the brain child of Ged Backland and is more well known for "hilarious observations and witticisms" such as "I went for a jog and came back after a minute because I forgot something… I forgot that I’m fat". There are books and other merchandise featuring Aunty and Walt - and now they've decided to try their hand at online bingo.
The Aunty Acid Bingo site is in the design of Aunty Acid's other sites and social pages. It's very colourful and features the main character playing bingo. To be honest the homepage does look a bit untidy and it hasn't really changed since launch date. In fact the only difference we're aware of is that Walt, Aunty's sidekick, looks to have been kicked into touch!
Aunty Acid Bingo offers all new players a free bingo. This trial offer can only be used in the newbie room and card validation is required in order to receive the bonus (maximum winnings that can be transferred is £20). Wagering terms apply and these are x8 for bingo and x40 for slots. Should you decide to become a depositor then you'll receive a 300% first deposit bonus - terms apply.
Rooms & Slots
Cozy Games brands do offer a good selection of bingo variations. As well as the bonus rooms mentioned above there's also 30 ball, 75 ball, 80 ball and 90 ball bingo to enjoy. A 50 ball game is also available but this is part of the bonus room set-up. Ticket prices are reasonable, with most tickets available from between 2p and 10p. All rooms have progressive or fixed pot jackpots and pre-buy is available. No app is required to play at Aunty Acid Bingo but the site is mobile and tablet friendly.
Slots haven't been the forte of the Cozy platform in the past but they are now bringing on board more well known games. Aunty Acid does have Fluffy Favourites, Double Up Ducks, Piggy Payout, Froots and Unicorn Bliss among it's titles. The quality and variety of slots has improved dramatically on the Cozy platform so players can now find a good selection.
When we first reviewed Aunty Acid Bingo we hoped that they'd be more exclusives for players. Other than the name and a few images, there's nothing else Aunty Acid related such as merchandise giveaways? The official site store has mugs and books up for sale - why not use them as prizes?
A few exclusives would set Aunty Acid apart from the multitude of other Live Bingo Network brands. With changes in bonuses effecting promotions at sites like Aunty Acid, offering something different would fill the void. For us this is one of those sites where there's a lot of unrealised potential. Great for the no deposit bonus but lacking anything else significant for players beyond that.
