Gravy Train Bingo Review
Gravy Train Bingo launched in 2014 as another addition to the Cozy Games platform. We quite like the name of the brand but didn't think that it would be one of the few Cozy sites left standing after a cull in 2019. Anyway, the gaming arena is one long gravy train with multiple brands jumping in to get a taste of the action - so why not have a brand that covers that as well. The question is do we think players should jump on board to this particular site if the destination is free bingo and big wins!
One thing that is really missing from Gravy Train Bingo is a train! What we have instead is a standard purple themed site with perhaps the logo the closest you'll get to something train like. In our view Gravy Train site is crying out for an "All Aboard The Bingo Express" or "Hop On The Gravy Train" strapline complete with bingoheaded folks hanging off a choo-choo! And to be honest we're disappointed there is a Gravy Boat Bingo sister site. Anyway we're going off course so what's on offer?
Gravy Boat Bingo Welcome Offer
The welcome offer at Gravy Train Bingo has changed over the years. The good news is that it still offers new players a no deposit bonus but it's in the form of a newbie room. Register and login to access the new player room to play £3000 worth of free bingo games. Any wins from these games are paid out as a bonus and has a x4 wagering term. On making a deposit 100% of any wins will be carried forward. When you do make a deposit you can also claim a 300% bingo bonus up to a maximum deposit of £500. Slot players can opt to take up to 180 spins on first three deposits. Again wagering terms apply.
Regulars to sites powered by Cozy Games (now known as Elektra Works) will know that there's a range of games including 30, 75, 80 and 90 ball bingo. The rooms include Down Town (80), City Hall (30), Devoted Dabbers (75) and Big Ben (90). These rooms are joined by jackpot games such as The 10K Sliding Jackpot. Ticket prices range from 2p up to £1 so there's plenty of bargain games to enjoy. Pre-buy is available on selected games. We believe that these rooms are shared by Foxy Bingo and Coral Bingo.
Gravy Boat Bingo Promotions
Promotions wise, Gravy Boat sticks are the usual networked monthly offers that tend to orientate around bonuses and slots. Despite being over 6 years old we can't recall Gravy Train ever running an exclusive offer. The brand has no social media presence either so there's no outlet for community. The aforementioned £10K Sliding Jackpot is perhaps the highlight of the promotions on Gravy Train. This has a guaranteed full house prize of £5000 and is therefore one of the better sliding jackpot games around.
Although GVC's acquisition of Cozy Games has resulted in the closure of mutiple sites, they did at least improve the slots. Players now have access to a full suite of games like Twin Spin, Fluffy In Space, Starburst, Vikings Go Bezerk and many more. Casino games like blackjack, roulette and Dream Catcher complete an impressive line-up. All games are accessible on mobile, tablet and desktop. No app is required to play on devices.
When we last updated our review we said Gravy Train was "simply another LBN site with a nice free trial, big welcome offer and plenty of promos". It's not really changed other than the number of sister brands has fallen by around 100. Why Gravy Train has outlasted these other sites is a mystery. However we are of the mindset that no one other than brands owned by GVC (Foxy, Cheeky, Coral, Ladbrokes and Gala) are safe in their hands. In other words Gravy Train could be at the end of it's line anytime soon.
With that in mind we're reluctant to suggest choosing this as an option. It seems pointless investing time and money into Gravy Train when we suspect that it will close sooner rather than later. The improved withdrawal terms and addition of better slots from the likes of Net Entertainment were a positive for Gravy Train, but it's not enough for us. If you're keen to experience the new Cozy Games/Elektra Works platform then you'd be better off choosing Foxy or Coral. That said we think you'd be better off selecting a brand on Dragonfish or Virtue Fusion.
