About Penny Bingo
Penny Bingo is a bingo portal from Loquax Ltd. It’s been one of our side projects for a number of years but time, UKGC compliance issues and working on Loquax has often been a distraction. The initial aim of this particular site was to highlight cheap and cheerful ways to play bingo online. We launched the site around the time when Costa Bingo and Cheeky Bingo were offering big prizes for a small cost. By integrating game feeds from various brands we were able to let visitors know when the best 1p, 2p and 5p games were playing.
In 2015 we merged Penny Bingo with a sister site Play Bingo. The idea behind the merger was to focus on developing one bingo site badly rather than several! Seriously though we were finding managing the same content across multiple sites difficult to maintain so Bingo Blog merged into Loquax and Play Bingo merged here. In hindsight this proved to be a sensible decision as UKGC compliance meant a lot of rejigging with our sites. Penny itself had to have a lot of content updated and coding added to be compliant with respect to adding key terms.
As online bingo has developed over the years cheap bingo games have become less of a novelty. Sites like Little Big Bingo and Fancy Bingo that were launched as dedicated cheap play brands dropped that approach (or closed) whilst “Penny Bingo” became a standard feature across top brands such as Gala and Mecca. Game feeds from operators were also stopped so Penny needed to change it’s approach and content. As Penny Bingo is now our last remaining bingo portal outside of Loquax it now covers all areas of online bingo. As of 2021 we’re slowly updating content so that we have a standalone bingo portal site that’s got good content and information for visitors.
Fun Fact: When we first launched Penny Bingo we were approached by an operator to purchase the domain name. The offer was two VIP tickets to a concert at Wembley and were worth £1500. We’re not sure why cash wasn’t offered. That concert was for a Mr Michael Jackson who died before the tour started! We think we probably did the right thing in not selling although if someone is interested in purchasing the domain we will listen to offers – cash only though – no tickets!
