Spice Bingo opened their virtual doors to the public in April 2013. They became part of the 15 Network which may be new to some of you but contains some familiar brands including Bingo Clubhouse and Lights! Camera! Bingo. The site is powered by the Jumpman Gaming software which is not that well know but has been around since late 2011. Signing up is a straightforward procedure so you will be up and running in a matter of minutes.
In addition to a bonus on your first deposit you will also be invited to take a spin on the Spice Bingo wheel of fortune. The wheel is made up of coloured segments and extra bonuses and everyone is guaranteed to be a winner with prizes ranging between £5 and a whopping £2,500. Unfortunately at the moment the only way you can fund your account is be using a credit or debit card, as they do not offer any of the more commonly used online payment methods such as Neteller, Paypal and Ukash.
The Spice Bingo home page is a basic design with an Asian looking lady standing in a shop window surrounded by a selection dishes containing exotic herbs and spices. Don't worry though she is not trying to sell you anything, her sole purpose seems to be to look pretty and entice you inside for a spin of the wheel. Under the shop window you will find three signs detailing their latest promotions, top games and recent winners. The rest of the page is made up of a simple menu bar and links to their social networking sites.
Head into the Spice Bingo lobby and you will be greeted by a grey brick wall and four tabs leading to their games. Sadly the number of rooms is very limited and ticket prices are a bit on the high side in the majority of them. There is a free bingo room offering four hours of free bingo a day but sadly this can only be accessed once you have made your first deposit. For a networked site there also seemed to be a distinct lack of players with only one room making double figures. Obviously this changes at different times of the day but it's worth keeping an eye on as fewer players equals smaller jackpots.
The rooms themselves are nicely laid out with plenty of space for you to view your cards and watch the numbers being called. There is a chat room where you can share some fun with other Spice Bingo players and one nice touch is the ability to add them to your buddy list so you can see when they are online. You can change the size of your font and the colour of your text which is useful if you have problems with your eyesight. Under the chat box you will find a selection of emoticons and common bingo terms such as WTG, LOL, BRB etc which will save you having to type them over and over again.
Spice Bingo has plenty of promotions to keep you occupied with both cash and prizes up for grabs. You will find daily specials, monthly specials, team bingo and even exclusive deals for their VIP's. Guaranteed jackpot games are run throughout the day seven days a week and there is a handy blog to keep you informed of everything that is going on.
When judging Spice Bingo you really need to remember that the software, the network and even the brand itself are all still in their infancy. As we all know, when you cook spicy food you have to give it time to get the maximum flavour and the same can be said for this online bingo site. If you fancy a break from then norm then sure give them a try but right now they a definitely more a Korma then a Madras!
