Most new bingo sites these days tend to opt to launch on Dragonfish, Cozy Games or Jumpman. The reason for this is that it can be tough to get new platforms off the ground. Previous attempts by Wonder Bingo, Amuso.com and Xbingo all ended in disappointment. However, using proprietary software hasn't effected Tombola. Will we be able to say the same for new site MrQ?
MrQ is the brainchild of Lindar Media. They've been involved in online bingo for some time with sites like Two Little Fleas (now sold), Pixie Bingo and Oink Bingo. The latter were both on Dragonfish, but with their own software Lindar Media can develop MrQ along their own lines.
No Wagering Bingo
New players are welcomed to MrQ with a free spins deposit bonus. Deposit £10 to get 10 free spins on Legend of the 5 Ninjas slot. As MrQ is a no wagering terms site, all winnings are uncapped and credited to your real money balance. Free bingo is offered to newbies too. For 24 hours, new players can claim six free tickets for 30 games in the Free For All bingo room, between 9am-10pm
Login to MrQ and you'll have access to 75 ball and 90 ball games. There are a number of rooms including Ocean, Festival, Rock & Rollover, Picnic, Popcorn and Piece Of Cake. Ticket prices vary from room to room - you can play from 1p up to £1. At present there's no option to purchase tickets in advance. All prizes are paid in cash.
MrQ offers a selection of slots. They are provided by Eyecon Games and Thunderkicks. There are titles we've not seen on other brands. However, we would like to see some familiar names from the likes of NetEnt and Pragmatic Play. This would give slot players a lot more variety and hopefully encourage more interest in MrQ.
Promotions are limited. However you can collect spins by referring friends as well as by verifying your mobile. MrQ don't have a dedicated VIP programme and go out of their way to let players know. They believe all players are VIP from the moment they sign up - we like that!
Worth A Look
New bingo platforms don't appear too often. MrQ looks pretty decent and there's plenty to like about their approach. We like their non-VIP approach, the different slots and the aim to be different. The ticket prices are reasonable and no wagering terms is a huge plus.
However, getting players to deposit and play at a new platform is not easy. You just need to check out Jumpman's brands to realise that. MrQ at least has some good qualities. Online bingo needs something new to shake up the status quo - it'll be interesting to see whether MrQ is the site to do it.
