Giant Bingo Review
Back in 2014 the trend in bingo was to churn out site after site. We saw multiple additions to The Live Bingo Network, 15 Marketing and Virtue Fusion. The Ignite camp, which houses the likes of Costa and Sing, even joined in this trend. 2015 was expected to follow suit - and it did - with Ignite kicking off the year by launching Giant Bingo. This "super-sized bingo site" offers "ginormous jackpots" as well as popular slots.
Introducing Giant Bingo
When Giant Bingo launched it was overlooked by Finn who stood astride the backdrop like a colossus. According to Irish legend, a giant called Finn McCool was responsible for building The Giants Causeway. Finn is described by Causeway Coast and Glens as a 54 foot tall giant who was responsible for the creation of The Isle of Man. The causeway was built so that Finn could take on a rival in Scotland called Benandonner. We have to say we're quite impressed with Giant for this tie in! It's a shame that this theme has been diluted because of UKGC rules.
Giant Bingo Welcome Bonus
But what about the bingo? Register and login to Giant Bingo and you'll have immediate access to The Bingo Academy for two days. This is a free newbies room that offers cash prizes. Every 15 minutes you can play a 90 ball game with 25p for 1L, 50p for 2L and £1 for the full house. No wagering terms apply but you will need to deposit before you can withdraw. Further time in The Bingo Academy - five extra days in fact - can be claimed when you become a first time depositor.
As well as further access to The Bingo Academy a first time depositor also gets a welcome bonus. Deposit £10 or more to receive 120 free bingo tickets that 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. 60 and then 30 further free bingo tickets are offered on your second and third deposits.
Giant Bingo Promotions
Giant Bingo uses the Dragonfish platform so that means you have access to traditional 75 and 90 ball games. These are joined by Bingo Vegas, a 52 ball playing card version of bingo. The slots at Giant Bingo are as you'd expect. Follow the link at the bottom of the lobby to take a spin on games like Fluffy Favourites, Piggy Payout, Cleopatra and Enchanted Prince. Additionally you'll find various Slingo titles and progressive jackpot slots to play. Instant win games and casino options like blackjack and roulette are also available.
Giant Bingo does offer extra free bingo games, plus further bonuses on reload. A minimum deposit of £10 will get up to 40 bingo tickets for the free rooms that are available to newbies. In addiiton you also get access to the Rainbow Reload room. This access is only valid for 24 hours from the time of the deposit. All wins in the reload room are paid in cash so no wagering terms apply. There's also a Diamond Club loyalty programme, a VIP player section and daily jackpots including Money Magic, Free Spins Frolic and Fi-Fo-Fun. The latter is free to depositors who have reloaded in the past six days.
If you're considering joining Giant Bingo then you won't go too far wrong. The platform is good and it offers plenty of positives. These include free bingo, a no deposit newbies room, a decent welcome offer and no wagering terms. There's also a good choice of bingo rooms, jackpots and slots. The reload offer is another plus although we think sites like Costa and Sing actually offer better bonuses.
Overall we love the fact that Giant Bingo have put together a brand with an interesting back story. Whether players "get it" remains to be seen, but it's a great looking site. For us as reviewers it's a tad too samey though once you shift Finn to the site and that's a shame as it deserves a lot more. We had hoped Giant would become big in the bingo world but sadly it's always going to be dwarfed by more established brands.
