GR88 Bingo Launch 0
Posted on 26, October 2014
There’s another new bingo open to players, an add on to a casino brand called GR88 but sadly, because it is a Microgaming product it is not available to UK players. GR88 already offers sports betting and casino and GR88 Bingo must have seemed like a natural progression for the site. We popped along recently to see how their bingo faired in comparison with that of the other 400+ sites available online today but sadly we couldn’t get the rooms to load.
We tried several times to enter both of the two rooms currently available at GR88 Bingo but both presented us with an ‘Authentication failed’ notice. Upon contacting support we were told ‘We apologize for this inconvenience. All the Bingo games along with some Casino games are property of Microgaming – one of our Casino providers. Microgaming has recently restricted UK players from its games. Unfortunately, we are unable to override these restrictions. Please apply filters on the Casino page to see the list of Play’n’Go games that are available for you to play.’
To be honest, before reading the press release we had never heard of GR88.com from the Olympian Group. It was only through searching for bingo news that the information came to light. The PR [original can be read here] states that GR88.com is the first online gaming brand in the world to launch the Microgaming Quickfire Bingo – this could be why we were having issues getting the rooms to open.
Jeff Goldings, a spokesperson for Olympian Trading Ltd said ‘Adding a Bingo offering is a huge step in the expansion of Olympian’s gaming solutions and Quickfire Bingo will greatly complement the full suite of world class games which we already have in Olympian’s and GR88.com’s powerful online gaming arsenal.’
