At the end of May we reported the demise of several brands on the Jumpman Platform. We wondered whether this was a sign of things to come. However, a recent addition to the group is obviously positive about the future judging by their latest promotion. Newcomers to the scene, Barbados Bingo, are giving their players the chance to win a holiday.
Up for grabs is an all-inclusive 10-night luxury Barbados holiday. The prize includes accommodation and flights from a major UK airport. It's worth £6000 and is quite possibly the biggest prize that's been offered on a 15 Network brand. A cash alternative at 75% of the total value may be offered.
How To Enter
Their are two ways to earn entries for this prize draw. Firstly you earn one entry for logging into your Barbados Bingo account during the promotion period. Secondly, additional tickets are collected for every £10 wagered on bingo and/or slots. The promotion period will run from Monday 21st May 2018 to Wednesday 20th June 2018.
We're impressed with this promotion from Barbados Bingo. The login aspect should encourage sign-ups but we do wonder how many people will earn entries by playing bingo. The 15 Network rooms - which are now aligned with the Slots Network - aren't exactly busy. Quiet rooms don't encourage participation! A 90 ball room hosting just 2 players and offering a 50p full house prize is a big hurdle.
Bingo Needs To Be Better
This is a big conundrum for new Jumpman sites, especially when it comes to bingo. A big prize will attract interest, but bingo players won't be spending money when there are no other players. No players means no revenue - and that makes offering big prizes difficult. Whilst we'd love to see this promo as the start of something for Barbados Bingo, we're worried that it may be a flash in the pan.
We think that Jumpman need to improve their bingo platform including more regular jackpots, incentives for depositing, and better promotions. This hopefully will encourage players to look at all brands - and then the extras like this holiday promotion are the cherry on top.
The saving grace for Barbados Bingo is that Jumpman have become strong in the slots department. Rainbow Riches has recently joined the roster and there are regular promos on selected slots from Yggdrasil Gaming.
