Entain Bingo Sites (Formerly GVC & Cozy)
A couple of years ago Cozy Games brands were at the top of no deposit bonus tree. Over 100 different sites enticed new players with welcome offers in the £15 to £20 no deposit bonus range. This tended to attract the freebie hunters, but sites like Harrys, Gone and Landmark hosted plenty of exciting rooms and slots. The sites also had regular promotions, free bingo games and notably were mobile friendly – long before Dragonfish and Virtue Fusion sites. They game players access to 75, 80, and 90 ball bingo plus speed bingo.
However, the change in bonus taxation resulted in huge changes for Cozy Games. Overnight all the no deposit bonuses became a week of free bingo. Additionally the platform was sold to GVC, a company that owns the likes of Ladbrokes, Coral, Foxy and Gala. The arrival of GVC on the scene resulted in impovements in terms of slots and promotions. However these revamps were a false dawn for the different Cozy Games networks: The Live Bingo Network (LBN), Best Bingo Network (BBN), Fun Bingo Network and Lucky Duck Network who were now under licence from Elecktra Works.
Foxy Bingo Moves To The Platform
Towards the end of 2018, this platform changed forever when Foxy Bingo – also owned by GVC Holdings – moved from Dragonfish to the Cozy platform. This move signalled the end of the Cashcade Network. Sites such as ITV, Telly Talk and Bingo Scotland closed down for good whilst Think and Cheeky joined Foxy in the new home. We’ve not been convinced by this move for Foxy and feel that it’s had a negative impact on the brand – more so than the ill-advised Heather Locklear direction. Most certainly Foxy isn’t regarded as one of the top bingo brands as it was a few years back.
However, Foxy’s competition on the network has been dramatically reduced since early 2019. GVC have closed down over 70 bingo brands including our own Snappy, Gone, Bobs, Harrys, Epic and Landmark. Even Think which was the destination for players looking for new homes from ITV and Telly Talk hasn’t been spared. The reason for the closures were that the sites had become unviable financially. This doesn’t suggest good things for the future of Foxy, Cheeky and remaining other brands like Game Village.
Where To Play
We fully expect that Foxy and Cheeky will be “last man standing” at some point in the future. When – not if – this happens then the Cozy Games online bingo chapter will have concluded. Therefore we suggest that if you are considering joining a site on this platform then head to Foxy. It has more bingo rooms, better slots and bigger promotions. Plus you can play Friends Bingo – a room based on the TV show.
