We've decided that it was high time we did another fun series of bingo posts. Like most of our series it will probably be short lived, rapidly shifted to the back burner and filed under "it sounded like a good idea at the time". Anyway with so many bingo brands sounding the same we're going to be comparing those that sound a tad too much like another. Welcome to Bingo Battles (we may have to come up with a better name).
Our first contestants in Bingo Battles are a well established radio station brand and recently relaunched Dragonfish site: Heart Bingo v Bingo Hearts! This we think is a David v Goliath type battle.

One Heart Or Two?
Bingo Hearts are stronger than Heart Bingo is a number of departments. They do offer a big welcome bonus and there are daily free bingo rooms. On the other hand Heart Bingo have a lower wagering condition meaning you'd only need to wager £40 as opposed to £120 on it's before you can start taking out your winnings. The variety of games and the free Doubly Bubbly game are also good plus points for Heart. Although Heart Bingo do offer 75, 80 and 90 ball bingo, their opponents do have more bingo rooms.
The biggest area where Heart Bingo stand out is in the exclusives department. Although Bingo Hearts are relatively new - at least to appearing on Loquax since their recent addition to the 888 Group - we don't expect to see them offering exclusives any time soon. Heart on the other hand regularly run big prize promotions and also have free bingo weeks, BOGOFs, tournaments and celebrity chats.
For us the exclusives really tip the balance in favour of Heart Bingo, but ultimately it has to come down to the games, jackpots and software platform. Gamesys' set up can sometimes feel a little clunky and we constantly have issues loading up the games (constantly renewing Flash Player). There are fewer issues with Dragonfish whilst the promotions are more limited the gaming side of things edges it for us.
All things considered then we're awarded this battle to Heart Bingo. They've got the brand, the exclusives and the better welcome bonus offer. If free bingo is your main attraction the Bingo Hearts is probably better for you but like so many new Dragonfish sites that have emerged recently it's not getting our blood pumping.
But that's just our opinion. Which do you prefer?
