Flog It Bingo Review
In May 2015 Flog It Bingo launched on the 15 Network. It marketed itself as a brand new site with a twist! The twist was that it had a sister site called Online Flogit and together they aimed to become the Bingo Community's number one Online Car Boot Sale site. Do carboot sales and bingo really go together? Well everything from Ann Summers to Gravy Trains have tried so why not? Read on to discover if Flog It is worth a trip for some bingo and bargains.
When they first arrived online Flog It Bingo described themselves as a place where you can "enjoy great bingo, flog your stuff for free and find great bargains". We noted in our original review that "Flog It" was nothing to do with The BBC show of the same name and probably didn't get it's inspiration from it either. Fast forward into 2020 and things are very much different. There's no reference to carboot sales or the online Flogit site. Instead you're left with a flea market image and access to bingo and slots.
Flog It Bingo Welcome Offer
New players who want to try Flog It will receive a spin of the Mega Wheel when making an initial deposit of £10 or more. There are no bargains or bingo bonuses. All wagering in the bingo rooms is cash only! Spinning the Mega Wheel gives you the chance to win up to 500 spins on slots such as Eyecon's Irish Luck and Fluffy Favourites. On a spin of the wheel you could also win Amazon vouchers or nothing at all. Wagering terms apply including a x65 requirement. Further spins of the Mega Wheel are available when you deposit £20+.
Flog It Bingo rooms have improved as of March 2020. This is because Lucky Stars, Free Bingo, VIP Free Bingo, Fair & Square and Pay Day Jackpot have been dropped and replaced by Pragmatic Play's bingo product. Login to enjoy 75, 80 and 90 ball games. These are joined by Bingo Millions 90 and instant win versions of the 75 ball, 80 ball and 90 ball versions of the bingo meets lotto game. Occasionally the Mega Bingo Millions Jackpot room is accessible too. We think Jumpman have done the right thing with respect to their own rooms.
Flog It Bingo Promotions
Most of the promotions on offer are the standard 15 Network ones - which originally were good. Players could enjoy things like Weekend Wad and Friday Fever. These days the promotions are limited. There is free bingo provided you've wagered in the other bingo rooms (excluding Bingo Millions). Newbies and regulars can qualify for cashback too. We're sad to see the £1000 Pay Day Jackpot has gone, but Pragmatic Play's product does include other jackpot games and specials.
Flog It also used to run their own exclusives. Free Games Tuesday was an Everyone's A Winner game that arrived in your inbox. The prizes tended to be bonus related but it was always nice to get a freebie. This exclusive also gave Flog It extra kudos when compared to other brands on the same platform. Without any social media, exclusive games or even the carboot sale aspect, there's now nothing that differentiates Flog It from it's multitude of sister brands.
When we first read about the Flog It Bingo site we had reservation. We kind of got the ideas individually (i.e. bingo and bargain hunting) but couldn't quite see how they marry up under one umbrella. In hindsight it looks like we were right because there's no Flog It bargain hunting. If the concept was workable then it'd still be running today. It's a shame although Flog It has outlasted Carboot Bingo and they didn't do anything they promised with respect to bargains either.
Overall we can't get excited about this particular bingo brand. Without it's key reasons to be it offers nothing out of the ordinary. The lack of bingo is a big problem, although the arrival of Bingo Millions and Pragmatic Play Bingo is an improvement. However Bingo Millions is available at Buzz Bingo who also offer more in terms of variety and promotions. Our advice is to forget Flog It and buzz off to Buzz Bingo.
