New Player Offer: Candy Club Points + Free Newbies Bingo
No Wagering Terms Apply!
Bgo Bingo, previously known as Xbingo, was originally the fifth site in the stable which included Costa, Sing, City and Fancy. However, it was slightly different to it's sister sites as was the first to have it's own bespoke software. Costa and co left the building after being sold to Intertain leaving Bgo to furrow it's on path. Bingo wise things didn't quite work out and in 2015 Bgo swapped their own software for the Virtue Fusion platform.
In October 2017, Bgo.com made some huge changes to their welcome offer for new players. New bingo players can receive up to 500 Candy Club Points on their first deposit (100 per £10 deposited). These points can then be used to buy bingo tickets and also no wagering attached to them. In addition as a new first time depositor you'll have access to the Beginner's Luck room for seven days of free games - although you will need to wager just a penny to enter the room.
The move to Virtue Fusion has been good for Bgo.com players as they now have plenty of choice in terms of rooms. There are 75 and 90 ball rooms as well as branded games such as Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and Deal Or No Deal. In addition there's also Joker Jackpot and Speed Bingo. As a Virtue Fusion brand it means that Bgo can also offer some big BingoLinx jackpots on a daily basis plus the usual network promotions such as Power Hours and Winner's Weekend.
The only minor disappointment since the change of software is that The Boss doesn't offer as many exclusives. In the past there used to be penny games prize games - nothing major - but it added a little bit extra. What we have noticed is that things are improving and at times of writing Bgo.com were hosting an £1800 Treasure Hunt, where you could win gold, and chat games.
Regular players can play free games and pick up additional rewards through the Candy Club loyalty scheme! Players earn 0.6 points for every £1 wagered on bingo - a lot less when playing slots and casino games. The more you play at Bgo.com the higher up the levels of Chocolate, Toffee, Nougat, Caramel and Candy levels you will go! You need 3000 points to hit the top level - or £5000 if you'd like it in monetary terms.
Bgo.com have come a long long way since the days of Xbingo. The Boss (Verne Troyer) adds some much needed character to the brand and the celebrity endorsements from the likes of Paris Hilton help raise it's profile. It's a shame that the inhouse software didn't work out, but the new platform could well be the best thing to happen to Bgo.
