Bright Bingo launched in April 2014, the second site from the Dazzletag camp, using the b-living software first seen on BingoCams. Although Bright Bingo has no ‘live moments’ as yet, the sites do have several similarities to each other, but both sites are standalone and not networked.
The homepage is pretty, with cartoon graphics depicting sunny scenes, rainbows and the all important pot of gold at the end. There’s lots of information, even before you sign up with details of bingo rooms, games and promotions around site. Signing up for a new account is fairly easy and pretty standard to anyone who has been around the Internet for a while. Also, as the site is non-networked there’s no spending hours looking for a unique username. For peace of mind the secure server encrypts all details too, so your banking details are safe. From landing on the homepage to depositing and getting into the bingo rooms took us less than 10 minutes!
Once you are ready to play, hitting the play button will take you to the bingo lobby, a virtual hub of activity where you can access all the bingo rooms – there’s both 75-ball and 90-ball at Bright Bingo – plus the free bingo games, any special pre-buy jackpot games and the slots and side games that are available on site too.
When you get into the bingo rooms you may notice a difference in the layout. B-livegaming pride themselves on the live gaming experience and maybe that’s why chat is given priority here. The bingo screen is divided down the middle with all the bingo information at the top and chat at the bottom. It’s different, but we’re not complaining, it’s well laid out and easy to keep track of what’s going in. Game prices vary from game to game so there’s a game to suit all pockets, the chat hosts are friendly and the player numbers are at an acceptable level, with pot sizes ok, but not setting the world on fire.
When you venture to the mini-games things should seem a little more familiar as Microgaming powers the casino side of things, and powers would be the right word with some of the biggest slots on the net available to play and some of the biggest jackpots too! Slots, instant wins and casino games are the order of the day and they are exactly the kind of quality you would expect from such a well known software supplier.
There is a promotional schedule at Bright Bingo too, but it’s not really as strong as some at other sites. The schedule mainly consists of free bingo offers and big jackpots, and during our visit we didn’t really see any exciting giveaways or prize draws.
We were a little on the fence with Bright Bingo. We really feel, as many do that the industry needs shaking up a little and that can only happen with new, fresh software packages such as the one on offer here. However, that said, the uniqueness is really all that is on offer and we don’t really feel that Bright Bingo is outshining many other sites out there. It is of course all a matter of taste and with generous first deposit bonuses and reloads too, it might be worth at least a visit if you’re bingo shopping.
Bingo Games Available
Bright Bingo offer both traditional 90-ball bingo and US 75-ball pattern bingo too, alongside a selection of instant win games.
