Brand New Bingo Review – CLOSEDRated by 0 members
Brand New Bingo is a bingo site that launched in March 2014 on the 15 Network, alongside other site such as Tidy Bingo and Rap Chic Bingo. We can’t help thinking that the name is going to be inappropriate and outdated within a very short time – say in a year when the site is no longer brand new!
The website at www.brandnewbingo.com features neon-like graphics and a deep purple backdrop, which all looks very nice and inviting. However, what we want to know is whether Brand New Bingo will deliver a brand new way to play online bingo or is it just another run-of-the-mill addition to the ever-increasing number of bingo sites that are vying for your business?
Opening a Brand New Account
Before you can get into the rooms at Brand New Bingo, you will first need to register for an account with them but don’t worry, this requires no great effort and should only take you a minute or two. If you’ve signed up at any other sites on the network, you will be able to open a new account with your eyes closed!
The simple registration form asks for the usual name, address and contact details, as well as asking you to choose a username and password. You don’t have to verify any email addresses – your account will be up and running the second you complete the form.
Brand New Bonuses
There is no free bingo bonus waiting for you when you first open your account. Before you can buy any bingo tickets or play any side games you will need to make a deposit. When you do decide to fund your ‘brand new’ bingo account, you are treated to a couple of welcome bonuses. Firstly, when you make your initial deposit you will receive a 200% bonus of up to £100 but that’s not all you’ll get. Your first deposit will also earn you a free spin of the prize wheel for a guaranteed bonus prize of between £5 and £2,500. This means that for a £10 deposit, you will have between £35 and £2,530 to play with.
No Brand New Games
Unfortunately, Brand New Bingo only offers two types of bingo games – US-style 75-ball pattern bingo and traditional 90-ball bingo. There are no brand new ways to play here! Sure, these two bingo variants are by far and away the two most popular bingo games but it’s nice to try something new every now and again.
The side games at Brand New Bingo also offer nothing new. Now, don’t get us wrong. The online slots and instant win games on offer are some of the most played games on the internet but we’ve seen them all before. Massively popular titles such as Sugar Train, Fluffy Favourites and Shaman’s Dream are available to play either in between your bingo games, in their own play window, or as mini-games from the bingo play window.
As mentioned, Brand New Bingo is a member of the 15 Network, which is growing by the week. All of the bingo rooms at the site are network rooms – there are no standalone rooms offered currently. This means that you will be competing for pots against players from across the entire network, as opposed to players at Brand New Bingo only. This has its advantages and disadvantages for players. The big advantage to networked bingo rooms is more players in the rooms, which means bigger prizes to play for. However, it’s more difficult to win a game of bingo in a busy room than it is in a quieter room, plus keeping up with chat in busy rooms can be a nightmare.
It’s not inconceivable that Brand New Bingo will open a standalone room in the future, as other sites on the network have done but this is likely to be when the site is no longer brand new.
There are no £50,000+ jackpot games to play at Brand New Bingo, as there often are at the web’s bigger sites like Foxy Bingo and Costa Bingo. There are, however, a couple of inviting progressive and guaranteed jackpots to play for. Every Friday night you can play for £150 guaranteed pots in the Friday Fever games. Also, there are progressive coverall jackpots to play for in most of the rooms, which must be won within a certain number of calls.
Out with the Old, In with the New?
Overall, we had a pleasant time playing at Brand New Bingo. Sure, the site is nothing out of the ordinary and the games are anything but brand new. However, the Jumpman Gaming bingo platform that’s employed by Brand New Bingo is a joy to use and it is one of our favourites.
If you’re looking for a new bingo site to play at, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t pay a visit to Brand New Bingo. However, the site offers nothing that can’t be found at other sites on the 15 Network and you certainly won’t find a brand new way to play online bingo.
