The popular celebrity and fashion magazine Fabulous started it's days as the News of The World magazine. Once the paper was shut down, Fabulous was retained and is now published every Saturday with The Sun. That wasn't the only change however, they decided to launch their own bingo site too! Fabulous Bingo has been around a while now, so we have decided to see how they are getting on since our last review!
Deposit Bonus Darlings!
Registration is pretty quick and easy with all major payment methods accepted including Maestro, Mastercard Visa, Visa Debit, Visa electron and uKash. New players to Fabulous Bingo can take advantage of the exclusive £5 free no deposit required bonus and a 200% first time deposit bonus! Get £5 free, then if you deposit £10, you get £30 to play with on top of your freebie. There is also a 50% reload bonus of up to £50 too. Players can earn another bonus through the refer a friend scheme, which pays out either a £10 or £20 cash bonus (depending where you look on site!) when your friend joins, deposits and plays.
Work That Bingo!
Fabulous Bingo has 4 bingo rooms (Paris, New York, Madrid and Rome) which host 75, 80 and 90 ball bingo. There are some cheap games in the Paris room for 1p per card, but typically the prices are 5p or 25p a card. Fabulous Bingo have an additional room, Milan for session bingo! They are £5 each which gets you cards to all the games playing in that hour. Players can pick from morning, afternoon, evening and twilight sessions for the whole week in advance. Do keep an eye out for ticket offers like the two for the price of one in the New York room.
Sadly there is still no sign of any free bingo as yet, but they do have a daily free to play game called Daily Pleasures. This is available to depositors only and it could see you win cash prizes or free spins on the Guilty Pleasures slots.
On the slots and instants front, there are lots to keep you amused including The Sun Winning Headlines, Double Bubble and Bejeweled Hypercash. Plus you'll find progressive jackpots which are spread across other Jackpotjoy software based sites (like The Sun, Heart etc) such as Wonderland and Bullion Bonanza. Look out for Linked Jackpot bingo games that run across all the sites too.
The Hot Shop
Like most bingo sites, Fabulous have a loyalty scheme to reward players called The Hot Shop. Earn Fab Points as you play to convert into cash. Players receive 1 point for each £5 played on Bingo or £20 on Slots, Slots Mini Games or Instant Win games. Players need 20 points before they can be redeemed for cash. A Fab Point is worth 1p, so a player must play £100 on bingo to get 20p cash? Seems a bit unrealistic to us!
Like The Sun, Heart and Caesars we hope that Fabulous Bingo will continue to have regular big prize promotions. As part of their introductory process where they promoted themselves to existing Sun Bingo players, Fabulous gave away a car, holiday and shopping spree. Since then, they have given away some very fashionable prizes including a trip to Cannes, a weekend in New York, personal shopping experiences and loads of designer goodies in their Ultimate Shopping List promotions!
Fabulous Bingo could be absolutely fabulous with a few changes in our opinion. Free bingo games wouldn't go amiss, also, having some sort of presence on Facebook and Twitter to interact with players would be fun. There are also no iPhone or Android mobile versions at the moment either, but fingers crossed they will appear in the near future. For what it's worth, Fabulous Bingo aim to be The Fashion Capital of Bingo - and with a magazine of fashion, celebrity and gossip at it's roots, along with their unique prize promotions, their future looks fabulous darling!
