OK! Bingo opened for business in July 2013 as part of the St Minver network. As you have probably guessed, they are owned by the magazine of the same name, but it if were not for the logo at the top of the page, you would not think there was any association between the two. The brand has missed a real opportunity here, if they had just put a bit of thought into their site, they could have included a celebrity gossip or stories of interest which would have given players a reason to stick around; By not doing this, they have made themselves just another re-skinned G2 Gtech powered online bingo site.
The OK! Bingo home page is quite bland with a red, white and blue colour scheme. At the top of the page you will find a large box displaying their welcoming offers and details of how much the network paid out in the jackpots during the previous twenty four hours. The rest of the page is made up of banners and links that will take you directly to the bingo rooms and their most popular side games. If you are new to online bingo, make sure you check out the 'Community' pages as this is where you can find out a bit more about the game and even learn the lingo that goes with it.
Click on the 'Register to Play' button and you will be taken through a two step registration process. The first stage asks for your basic details such as name, date of birth and email address; The second stage will ask you for a login name, and if you are already part of the network via one of their other sites, this will need to be different to any login names you have used before. You will be welcomed by some free bonus followed by bonuses on your first three deposits, but think hard about whether you want to accept this bonus money or not because their wagering requirements are a massive 10x.
Head into the lobby and you will find tabs for bingo, slots, scratchcards, progressives, casino games and arcade games. OK! Bingo offers 75, 80 ball and 90 ball bingo but there are only four rooms in total to choose from. From the lobby you can see all of the important information you need such as ticket prices and prize money. One thing we did notice, is that at the time of reviewing which was 1pm on a Tuesday afternoon, there were less then sixty players online which is never a good sign, especially when you consider this is a networked site.
The rooms themselves are well laid out but use the networks standard blue colour scheme, taking them further away from the OK! branding. To the left of the screen is where your purchased cards are displayed, along with a panel showing the balls as they are called. To the right of the screen you will find a selection of slots and mini games that you can play without it interfering with your bingo games. Under these is a chat room where you can have a bit of a gossip with your friends and they included emoticons and acronyms so you can avoid all of that repetitive typing.
OK! Bingo is just that, an OK online bingo site. There are plenty of games to choose from and the network offers some decent promotions with both cash and prizes up for grabs. If you like the G2 Gtech software then sure sign up and take advantage of their free money, but their extremely high wagering requirements mean their deposit bonuses are best avoided. If the site owners had just spent a little more time and effort on the design and the content then they could have appealed to the many readers of their magazine, but sadly it appears they could not be bothered.
