Abc bingo has been around since 2010 and is currently based upon the popular Dragonfish software platform which is used by scores of other bingo sites.
On first look the site is sharp and well presented although it does use a lot of different colours so it’s not quite as clean as other sites in the marketplace.
It may just be due to the current promotion that is running or a recent design decision, but the entire homepage is taken up with what amounts to a series of adverts for the site.
At the top next to the logo is a register button, then in the middle there is another one which forms part of a step by step instruction on how to register.
Below that are two more banners highlighting the welcome bonus and three of the progressive jackpot amounts in three of the rooms.
There are a few pictures near to the bottom of the instant games and then finally there is a play button which takes you to the login page.
Most of the bingo sites that are out there give the visitor at least some indication of what is happening in the site itself such as information about the current games or a little bit of news.
For whatever reason Abc bingo doesn’t do this and instead has chosen to turn the homepage into a giant advert.
Aside from this all of the usual pages are present on the menu at the top such as the promotions section, a list of the available game types and side games, a table of recent winners and the all important help section.
The help page is nice and long though and contains plenty of useful information aimed at newbies who need a little help to get started.
The three game types that are available are 90, 75 and high five bingo.
High five is a slightly different game type that some players may not be familiar with but it’s just a different card layout and can be just as fun as regular 90 ball.
At the time of this review (2015) the site wasn’t suitable for a mobile sized screen but it should be just fine for tablet screen sizes.
Over the course of 2015 many more bingo sites will become mobile friendly and this in turn will boost the already growing mobile bingo market.
There are two free bingo rooms on the site but only one is available for all players to get involved in.
There are some guaranteed jackpots to be had in some of the rooms so it’s important to check out the schedules to see when they are happening.
The ticket prices range from 5 pence to 5 pounds but there are plenty towards the lower end of that range.
There are also some good chat games to get involved in on Abc Bingo and there are plenty of nice friendly roomies to get chatting to once you are in a game.
You can also get some help with using the site via the live chat feature as well which can make things a lot easier.
Signup to the site is easy with Abc Bingo and should be a quick process.
Also note that although there may be a place to put your payment information during signup, you don’t have to provide it at this stage.
It can be added later on once you have signed up which should help some players to feel a bit more comfortable about the process.
There is a loyalty scheme operating on the site called BFF and it allows players to build up loyalty points in exchange for spending money on the site.
Once you have built up enough you can then spend your loyalty points on things like free bingo cards and other free gifts.
When it comes to withdrawing your winnings you can only do so after you have deposited £30 and wagered 4 times the bonus amount.
A minimum withdrawal amount of £20 also applies and if you are unsure about any of these points make, sure you check out the terms and conditions on the site.
Finally, Abc Bingo is licensed by the government of Gibraltar which means it automatically has approval from the UK Gambling Commission and is considered safe to play if you are a player from the UK.
