Film Bingo made an appearance on our monitors for the first time at the end of July 2014. It was the 19th brand to choose the Jumpman Gaming software to power its bingo games as part of the 15 Network. Our first visit to the site left us quite impressed with the overall design, the owners have clearly incorporated the theme of the brand well in the aesthetics.
The site boasts the standard cash match bonus and spin of the wheel deal but even the wheel has a cinematic feel to it, even if it is an old style film reel. Film Bingo even has a director’s chair on the home page and the logo sports a camera. Step into the site and you’ll even find that the VIP progress bar utilises a couple of Oscars.
It only takes a couple of minutes to register with the brand using the standard registration form from this network. The usual information is required and then you are ready to step into the site and see if the glitz and glamour you would expect from a brand of this name is available. Your first stop is the Member Area and it is clear they had rolled out the red carpet with an abundance of different options from this area. You can check your balance, deposit into your account, create or amend your profile and check your games and account history.
To visit the lobby you just have to click ‘Play Now’ and you’ll be ushered to your seat. From the lobby you can see what is showing at the Film Bingo screen by way of bingo and instant win games. Currently the 15 Network sites only offer 75 ball pattern and 90 ball games but they do have an impressive of instant win games available to players. The navigation in the lobby is a standard tabular format with options of 90 ball, 75 ball, Jackpots and Instants. You can see an array of information about the bingo rooms from the lobby including the host name, number of players, jackpot prize, time until next game and cost per ticket. All of this helps you choose a room to suit your gaming requirements.
When you have chosen the room you will be taken to screen showing your required game. The room is laid out in the same way as many sites online today with the bingo tickets to the left of the screen and chat to the right. A recent addition to the network has been the mini games but these can restrict your view of chat. To make chat bigger, just close the mini game screen by clicking the X.
There are a number of features that we love about the 15 Network and they can all be found at Film Bingo too. One of those is the Streak Buster bonus game available in the Lucky Stars room, a bonus that is activated if you lose five games in a row. There is also the internal mailbox and the ability to add your buddy’s to a friends list so that you can see if they are online and in what room.
When it comes to promotions Film Bingo offers the standard network deals but there are also a couple of exclusives available from this site. In addition to that, the site also gives details of how they plan on spending their profits to help indie film makers.
Film Bingo may be a networked brand but it looks as though there are a number of differences to make it stand out from the crowd.
