The current trend in bingo is for current networks and software providers to churn out more of the same. In 2014 for example we saw multiple additions to The Live Bingo Network, 15 Marketing, Virtue Fusion and even the Ignite camp which houses the likes of Costa and Sing. We suspect 2015 will follow suit and Ignite are getting back into gear early with the addition of Giant Bingo.

As with all other recent additions, such as Monkey, Rio, Wish and Treasure, to this group Giant Bingo is visually brilliant. The site is overlooked by Finn who stands astride the backdrop like a colossus Mel B when she was with Costa Bingo. The site has a "lucky Irish" feel to it too with pots of golds, lucky shamrocks, a rainbow and what we think may be The Giants Causeway. That feel though is no coincidence!
According to Irish legend, a giant called Finn McCool was responsible for building The Giants Causeway. Finn is described by Causeway Coast and Glens as a 54 foot tall giant who was responsible for the creation of The Isle of Man. The causeway was built so that Finn could take on a rival in Scotland called Benandonner. We have to say we're quite impressed with Giant for this tie in!!
But what about the bingo? Well it uses the Dragonfish/Cassava platform so that means the standard 75 and 90 ball games you'll find on a lot of sites. New players are welcomed with a £10 free no deposit bonus coupled with a 250% first deposit bonus. If you use the code NEW on a second deposit you'll get a 150% reload bonus whilst if funding for a third time the code MONEY will get you 100%. All bonuses comes with wagering conditions.
Finn does offer free bingo some of which is open to non-funded players. Depositors get access to extra games including the £10K Free-Fi-Fo game which takes place every Friday at 10pm. Yes it's the same game that every other site on the network pretty much has so sadly it's nothing new. In fact sadly there's nothing new to say about Giant. The slots are as you'd expect with Fluffy Favourites, Piggy Payout, Cleopatra and Enchanted Prince amongst the usual options.
There's also the usual Diamond Club loyalty programme, a VIP player section and daily jackpots. Sadly we can't get too excited about them as we've seen them all before. We suspect that in a few weeks though that Giant will begin to run some prize promotions - hopefully exclusive to it's brand rather than just crossover games from sister sites though.
Overall we love the fact that Giant Bingo have put together a brand with an interesting back story. Whether players "get it" remains to be seen, but it's a great looking site. For us as reviewers it's a tad too samey though once you shift Finn to the site and that's a shame as it deserves a lot more. The £10 freebie will most certainly entice players in for a look and that could help Giant become big in the bingo world.
