Party Bingo Review – CLOSED
Party Bingo was once an online bingo giant but that was in its hay days, which seem like a distant memory now. Party Bingo is owned by Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment Plc, which is an internet gaming enterprise – one of the biggest, in fact – and the site operates as a standalone bingo site. You won’t be competing against players on other bingo sites, just players at Party Bingo.
Bwin.Party also owns Cashcade, which they bought in 2009. Since then, the company appears to have concentrated their online bingo efforts on the Cashcade brand, leaving Party Bingo in the shade a little. However, if you were to ask a cross section of the bingo playing public in the UK, Party Bingo would still be considered one of the net’s leading bingo providers.
Starting the Party
The signup process at Party Bingo is pretty straightforward, with just a handful of fields to complete. Each field is marked with a green tick as soon as you have completed it correctly, making the entire process much simpler. You do have to register a credit or debit card before you can complete the registration process but, as there is no free bingo cash for simply opening an account, you will have to make a deposit before you can start playing.
When you first add funds to your new Party Bingo account, you will be treated to a whopping 300% first deposit bonus. Simply Add between £10 and £50 to your new account balance and Party Bingo will give you 300% extra for free! For example, if you make a first deposit of £20, you will receive a £60 bonus, giving you £80 to play with in total.
Powering the Party
Their very own proprietary software powers the bingo games and side games at Party Bingo. This brings a completely unique feel to the software and game play. It all looks pretty enough and it all seems to work well but there’s something missing that we couldn’t put our finger on. There’s a chat window, a selection of mini-side games to play, clear and concise game info, a pleasant ball drawing animation and a handful of useful options. It all sounds perfect but for some reason the platform doesn’t feel as user-friendly as Tombola’s platform or the Virtue Fusion offerings. Pay a visit to www.partybingo.com and see for yourself. Maybe we’re wrong.
You won’t find any games of Pin the Tail on the Donkey, Pass the Parcel or Musical Chairs but there is a good choice of Party games to choose from on site. There are three flavours of bingo on offer at Party Bingo – classic 90-ball bingo, US-style 75-ball pattern bingo and 30-ball speed bingo. The bingo games are accompanied on site by over 80 online slots games, some which feature progressive jackpots.
Party Animal or Party Pooper?
Party Bingo is undoubtedly a professionally operated leading bingo site but they no longer have their finger on the pulse of the industry. The player numbers found at Party Bingo reflect this fact. The crammed bingo rooms of yesteryear are now something of a rarity. Overall, Party Bingo is worthy of the ‘leading bingo site’ title but only by virtue of their rich online bingo history and their high standard customer services and operating standards.
Who’s Party Is It?
Party Bingo is owned by Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment Plc, which is a Gibraltar based company. All games on site are operated by ElectraWorks Ltd, which is a subsidiary of Bwin.Party. The games at Party Bingo are licensed and regulated by the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority.
