Brits Bingo Review
Updated On Friday 15th May 2015
New Player Offer: 150% Bonus - 3
Wagering terms and conditions will apply - Please gamble responsibly!
Back in 2011 a new site launching on the Dragonfish network powered by Cassava network didn't usually meet with too much interest. After all our own sites - Loquax Bingo, Prize Bingo and Bingo House - cover the basics with an attractive deposit bonus offers, 90 ball and 75 ball games and jackpots, regular promotions and prizes.
However, when Brits Bingo launched it marked a major shift for the long established Dragonfish network. Sites had been limited to what they could offer new players but that all changed with Brits Bingo. They came in with a massive 300% welcome bonus, a big TV campaign and they even drafted in Gavin Henson for a celebrity endorsement
When it launched we commented that "the use of celebs is impressive and the changes at Dragonfish are interesting but the deposit bonus isn't that appealing to new players once you scratch below the surface. The key to success for Brits will be how players see them when the initial advertising campaigns have concluded." - fast forward to 2015 and just how have Brits Bingo faired?
150% Welcome Bonus
Disappointingly it's not good news. Gavin has long gone and now all that's left is just a standard Dragonfish site. We have no idea how much it cost them to use Henson alongside Katya Virshilas but you do wonder whether it was worth the money? Either it was an experiment that didn't work or the brand is now just resting on it's laurels and not undertaking any further major promotions. The fact that it's Facebook page hasn't been updated for over a year does set off a few alarm bells too.
But what if you want to give Brits Bingo a try? Well, new players are currently offered a 150% welcome bonus. Deposit £10 to get £25 to play - there's a x4 wagering condition as is standard for Dragonfish sites. Sadly there are no exclusives that you find on the newer network brands like Iceland and Lucky Charm. Instead you'll find 75 and 90 ball games, a mix of slots and progressive jackpots. Plus there are the regular network promotions like The Big £10K, Zodiac Bingo, Sure Win and Grab A Grand.
On the plus side you can play via mobile and tablet. There are regular free bingo games although you will need to be a depositing player within the last 7 days to access them. Payments can be made via the usual channels plus Paypal, Neteller and Paysafecard. Brits Bingo promised so much when it launched but it just goes to show that celebrity endorsements and TV campaigns do not add up to success in the bingo world.
