Bgo Bingo began life as Xbingo a proprietary platform from the then owners of Costa Bingo. Xbingo moved away from that stable, changed it’s name to Bgo.com. They eventually gave up with developing their own bingo software and joined the Virtue Fusion stable. The site is best known for using the late Austin Powers star, Verne Troyer in the role as “The Boss of Bgo.com”. They’ve also had celebrity endorsements from Dan Bilzerian and even Paris Hilton. Since those heady days life hasn’t been easy for Bgo.com with offers chopping and changing all the time. That said you can still play bingo, slots, live casino and virtual sports on the site.
Bgo Bingo Welcome Offer
In October 2017, Bgo.com made the decision to drop all their wagering requirements and become a no wagering casino. Whilst others have joined the bandwagon successfully, Bgo backtracked and went back to wagering terms. Up until recently they did have welcome offers for slots players and bingo players. It seems like the latter has now been dropped which means the standard welcome offer is win up to 500 spins on the Mega Wheel. Simply deposit £10 or more to qualify. The key terms for this offer are: Win up to 500 Free Spins from Mega Wheel on 1st deposit. 24-hour expiry. Max bet £2.50, max spins win £8 per 10 spins, max Bonus win £150, selected games & 65x wagering on winnings. No Neteller/Skrill. Full T&Cs apply
Bgo Bingo Rooms
Without a welcome offer bingo players may instead look at the 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, Age Of The Gods, Rainbow Riches, Fluffy Favourites, Cash Cubes, Fairy Delight, Seaside Bingo and our favourite Cheap As Chips. Note that most of these rooms are part of the Virtue Fusion platform. However we believe that Fairy Delight is exclusive to Bgo players. In total there’s 17 rooms to choose from so plenty of options!
Slots is where Bgo.com seems to prefer to lie and it’s not a surprise given there are 100s of top games available to play at the site. You’ll find daily jackpots, progressives, popular titles like Starburst, various Megaways titles and much more. Surprisingly there aren’t any Slingo games which must make Bgo.com pretty unique. If you do like slots and want something different then the Tournaments section is worth a look. Take part for the chance to win free spins and cash prizes.
Bgo Bingo Promotions
Promotions are limited at Bgo Bingo, at least when compared to say Mecca or Gala. In fact we can now say they’re pretty non-existent! They did used to host The Big Competition each month where players completed three challenges during the month to be able to play free games for the chance to win prizes. This promo has now gone along with the bingo welcome offer. All that is left is the Candy Club rewards program which you can earn points for every time you play.
Penny’s Thoughts On Bgo Bingo
Back in 2015 we wrote that “in truth we think Bgo.com would prefer to be a slots/casino site first and foremost”. We also wrote that “in many respects the bingo side of things hasn’t really taken off or developed to the heights of Gala” despite the various big names that have been involved in the brand’s marketing. OK it’s taken almost six years for that prediction to come to fruition but it is looking more and more like Bgo are giving up on bingo. Dropping the welcome offer isn’t attractive and to be fair the newbie room offer isn’t that great either. How many newbies will want to login at 12pm, 2pm, 4pm, 6pm, 8pm and 10pm for the chance to win a share of a £2 bonus.
If Bgo Bingo was the only brand on it’s platform then it might be worth a look, but when it’s up against Mecca, Gala, William Hill, Sky and Buzz then it’s on a hiding to nothing. We wouldn’t be surprised to see Bgo dropping bingo altogether in the near future or look for an alternative option like Pragmatic Play. At this moment in time – and with other better sites out there – we’d suggest you look at other options.
