Bgo.com originated from a brand called Xbingo which was launched on it’s own platform by the then owners of Costa Bingo. Xbingo moved away from that stable, changed it’s name and eventually gave up with it’s own software and joined the Virtue Fusion stable. The site is perhaps most well known for employing Austin Powers star, Verne Troyer, as “The Boss” as well as using the likes of Paris Hilton and Dan Bilzerian as celebrity endorsers.
In October 2017, Bgo.com made the decision to drop all their wagering requirements. This means new players to Bgo Bingo are now offered 100 Candy Club Points for every £10 deposited – up to a maximum of 500 Points. These points can be used to purchase bingo tickets or slot spins – and any wins generated from these will have no wagering terms.
14 Bingo Rooms
New players also have access to a free bingo room for seven days. To access this room all you need to do is spend just 1p daily on bingo tickets. Don’t miss your chance to win a share of £10 bonus cash every day at 12pm, 3pm, 6pm and 9pm!
The Bgo Bingo section comprises a number of rooms that offer 75 and 90 ball bingo. There’s Peggy’s Place, Need For Speed, Deal Or No Deal, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Fairy Delight, Seaside Bingo and our favourite Cheap As Chips. Note that most of these rooms are networked across the Virtue Fusion platform but we believe that Fairy Delight is exclusive to Bgo players. In total there’s 14 rooms to choose from so plenty of options! Surprisingly though there’s no Bouncy Balls, Cash Cubes or Bgo’s own 50 ball variant as you find on other Virtue Fusion brands.
The Monthly Big Competition
Promotions are limited at Bgo Bingo, at least when compared to say Mecca or Gala. However they do host The Big Competition each month. Players need to complete three challenges during the month to be able to play free games on the last Friday where they have the chance to win £100 Amazon vouchers. Each weekend usually sees a bonus offer (e.g. spend £10 to get a £5 credit – as far as we know with no wagering terms) but beyond that the promos are network based.
This isn’t a bad thing as you’ll find penny games, BOGOFs, 1TG/2TG games, rollovers and of course Bingo Linx Jackpots.
In truth we think Bgo.com would prefer to be a slots/casino site first and foremost. In many respects the bingo side of things hasn’t really taken off or developed to the heights of Gala, Wink, Tombola or Jackpotjoy despite the various big names that have been involved in the brand’s marketing. If you’re a fan of slots then Bgo, in our view, beats most of it’s bingo competition.
