Bingo Minions, Hombre And Diaries All Closed Their Doors
Article Updated On 29th May 2018
Last week we told you about the imminent demise of our own 15 Network brand, Clucky Bingo. Sadly, Clucky has now closed and all traffic will eventually be redirected to our sister site at Slots Gold. This is also a Jumpman Gaming powered site and it offers plenty of great games and bingo so Clucky fans will feel right at home.
However, Clucky isn't the only 15 Network site that's reached the end of it's lifetime. Bingo Minions has also shut it's doors this week. In an email received last week the decision to close was based with the current UK legislative landscape in mind. This references the site's name and design.
Bingo Hombre & The Bingo Diaries Also Closed
In other words using Minions as part of the brand and design may appeal to younger people. A site re-design without minions, even if they've been bingo balled, would not fit the name. Therefore the owners have decided that it's easier to cull the site and focus visitors on another of their Jumpman properties at Jupiter Slots.
Minions and Clucky aren't the only 15 Network casualties either. Bingo Hombre now redirects it's visitors to the Slots Game Club, a similar set up to Slots Gold and Jupiter Slots. Hombre launched in September 2014 and made a massive impact by offering a holiday to Mexico as a new site incentive. Wheel Of Slots brand, The Bingo Diaries, also now redirects to Slots Game Club.
What About Other 15 Network Brands?
With three sites dropping from the 15 Network in a short space of time, it does raise questions about the future of this stable of sites. Some brands, including Lights Camera, Dove, Showreel and Elf have had a makeover to bring them in line with other Jumpman Slots sites. Recent newcomers Barbados Bingo have also followed suit.
However, remaining brands such as Tidy, Rocket, Lucky Rainbow and Spice are all looking tired and dated. We wonder whether these brands will be culled or redirected to more slot orientated options. Most certainly Rocket Bingo could easily send it's visitors to Rocket Slots.
Will Jumpman Drop Bingo?
Whatever happens the future of bingo on Jumpman powered sites must surely by in question. There are currently 27 bingo brands on the 15 Network plus at least the same number on the Slots Network. In addition there's a handful of brands on Wheel Of Slots. Despite this number, all the bingo rooms are pretty much dead.
Empty rooms don't encourage new players and we can't see how bingo can survive on Jumpman sites unless something is done to boost interest and numbers. We wouldn't be surprised to see the platform move away from bingo and focus purely on slots.
