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 launched in September 2018 and was voted Best Proprietary Bingo Software in BingoPort's 2019 Awards.
MrQ is the brainchild of Lindar Media. They've been involved in online bingo for some time with portals like Two Little Fleas (now sold) and Online Bingo. They also ran Oink Bingo, Circus Bingo and Blast Off Bingo on Dragonfish. These sites have since either been sold or closed down so Lindar can focus on their own software and the development of MrQ. The site itself looks great and is perfectly designed for desktop and mobile players.
No Wagering Bingo
New players are welcomed to MrQ with a free spins deposit bonus. Deposit £10 to get 10 free spins on Eyecon Games' Fluffy In Space 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 so that they can see what the software is all about. For 24 hours, new players can claim six free tickets for 20 games that will take place in the Free For All bingo room, between 9am-10pm. All prizes are paid in cash.
Login to the MrQ bingo lobby and you'll have access to 75 ball and 90 ball games. There are a number of rooms including Freedom, Ocean, Festival, Rock & Rollover, Picnic, Popcorn and Piece Of Cake and Cloud 9. Ticket prices vary from room to room - you can play from as little as 1p all the way up to £1 a ticket. Pre-buy is available on selected games such as Rock & Rollover. This is a unique game where no prize is awarded unless house is called in a select number of calls. Instead the progressive jackpot rolls over until it is won. At time of writing the pot is just under £7000.
When MrQ launched it only offered players a small selection of slots. These were provided by Eyecon Games and Thunderkicks and we wished for more. Thankfully our wish has been granted as MrQ now boasts games from the likes of Net Entertainment and Blueprint Gaming. Login to the slots lobby now and you're able to play top titles such as Starburst, Bonanza Megaways, Ozzy Osbourne, Motorhead, The Thunderere, Dead Or Alive II and Skulls Up. You can also play a number of progressive jackpots on selected Eyecon Games.
Promotions at MrQ are limited but they do exist from time to time. These are usually announced via email or featured within the lobby. With respect to regular offers you can collect spins by referring friends to the site as well as by verifying your mobile number. 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 let alone new sites don't appear too often these days. MrQ looks pretty decent and there's plenty to like about their approach to what they offer and how they treat players. We like their non-VIP approach, the different slots and the aim to be different from the established platforms. The ticket prices are reasonable, free bingo for newbies attractive and the no wagering terms is a huge plus. Since their launch in 2018 MrQ have definitely worked hard to establish themselves in a difficult market at a very difficult time.
However, getting players to deposit and play at a new platform is not easy and this is still evident at MrQ. The rooms are crying out for players so that games can actually play. This lack of activity is a shame as we feel bingo players are genuinely missing out on an experience that's not powered by Dragonfish or Virtue Fusion. The slots selection is good and no wagering terms a positive - take a look at MrQ if you'd like something different from every other site.
