Standalone Bingo Sites (no network)
Originally, all online bingo sites were standalone sites but as more and more internet bingo operators started appearing, many of them started sharing bingo rooms to create bigger jackpots and prizes. However, some of the very biggest bingo sites in the game chose to retain their independence by remaining as standalone bingo sites, keeping all of their players together on one site.
When you think of the most iconic brands in the world of online bingo, you will almost certainly be thinking about standalone sites. The biggest and best standalone bingo sites include; Foxy Bingo, Tombola Bingo, Costa Bingo, Cheeky Bingo, Foxy Zero, Bingo Cams, BGO Bingo and Bingo Godz.
There are a number of other sites that could also be considered as standalone bingo sites but they do join forces for specific big jackpot games, such as sites in the Joy of Bingo Network, for example. Although primarily these sites are standalone, with their own bingo rooms, they do share players in big games as part of bingo networks. Therefore, we don’t consider them to be true standalone bingo sites.
The advantages of playing at standalone bingo sites are clear to see. Everybody that you’re playing against has the same software to use, the same offers, bonuses and promotions available to them and the exact same facilities to use. This makes for much more of a fair and even bingo experience for everyone. The busy bingo rooms found at leading standalone bingo sites are only possible if the sites are successful, there is no traffic from other bingo sites to fall back on.
The main drawback to standalone bingo sites is found with some of the smaller standalone sites, which can suffer from very quiet periods and cancelled jackpot games in the worst instances. However, this just isn’t a problem for sites like Foxy Bingo and Tombola, who have thousands and thousands of regular players.
