MrQ was one of a handful of new bingo sites that launched during 2018. Whilst new sites were rare in that year a bigger rarity is something completely different for bingo players. By this we mean new software platforms! The enigmatically named site has decided to boldly go where few others now dare to tread by launching a fully independent bingo site on their own software. This new brand offers a mix of free, 75 and 90 ball bingo plus a increasing selection of slots. But does it offer enough to attract players away from other platforms and popular bingo brands?
New Player Welcome Bonus
MrQ has opted to join the ‘no wagering terms‘ bandwagon. This is great news as it means any wins from games or bonus awards are paid as cash. There’s no need to worry about bonus money or how much you need to wager before being able to withdraw. New players are welcomed with 10 free spins on the Stampede slot (valued at 25p per spin and must be used within 48 hours of qualifying) after making a deposit of £10. All winnings are uncapped and credited to your real money balance. If you want to try the bingo at MrQ for free then new players have access to the Free For All room. Access is only for 24 hours but winnings are uncapped and are paid as cash.
MrQ Bingo Rooms
Inside MrQ you’ll find a simple but stylish lobby. Dragonfish could learn something from MrQ! It’s relatively easy to find the various 75 ball and 90 ball rooms as well as access the slots. The bingo rooms include Popcorn, Rock & Rollover, Ocean and Freedom. Ticket prices range from pennies upwards. The rooms tend to be quiet even though MrQ has been active for a couple of years now. They have tried to boost the bingo rooms with special celebrity involvement from the likes of Amy Childs and Love Island’s Cara De La Hoyde. Peter Andre has even played at the site!
Slots & Games
Slots at MrQ are provided by a number of different providers and include Eyecon Games and Thunderkick. Titles include Babushkas, Flame Busters, Fruit Warp, Frog Grog, Birds On A Wire, Zoom, The Rift, Spectra and Flux. These aren’t slots we’ve seen on many other bingo/slot brands. MrQ have added popular Eyecon titles such as Fluffy Favourites and these top slots are joined by progressive jackpot games too. That said a few familiar titles from Net Entertainment – such as Starburst – would be appreciated. Since it’s launch the slots section has developed considerably more than the bingo platform.
MrQ offers players free spins for referring their friends and verifying their mobile number. That’s pretty much it when it comes to player promotions. Occasionally there may be a slots tournament or special bingo game but these tend to be promoted on the inside of the lobby. One thing we do like is that the site doesn’t have a VIP programme. Instead they claim they’ll “build a personal relationship” with players and “give out rewards” based on loyalty. This was actually a good bit of foresight from them as VIP status is something many bingo and slots brands have now dropped.
Penny’s Thoughts On MrQ
There’s plenty to like about MrQ, especially as it’s offering something unique to players. We like the various bingo rooms and slots too as well as them opting to be a no wagering site. When the site launched we said that there were currently limitations in terms of player numbers but this may change as the site develops. Frustratingly it hasn’t and this is always an issue with new proprietory sites. They need more players to attract more players but empty bingo rooms have the opposite effect. In many respects, whilst disappointing it wouldn’t surprise us to see MrQ look to Pragmatic Play’s bingo plugin in the future – or alternatively provide a similar product to other brands.
