BGO Bingo is the new name for X Bingo and strictly speaking is a new site as it went through quite a transformation back at the end of 2012.
The entire theme of the site is now different although the colours are still similar and they have kept the blue fairy mascot.
The standard setup of both 90 and 75 ball games are on offer but the software and layout of the games on the site are probably slightly different than most players are used to.
The front page may be a little different but it is clearly laid out with the 4 rows of tabs showing you exactly where to go for certain features.
In terms of the colour scheme used on the site the overall look is easy on the eye and all of the text is clear and easy to read.
It’s a real plus when sites choose this kind of look for a site as so many others on the market at the moment use sickly garish colour combinations which quickly become distracting and harm the playing experience.
There is also a welcome lack of flashing banners and moving graphics on the site which makes it far easier to read what the site has to say rather than having your attention drawn away every few seconds.
Free bingo is definitely on the menu with BGO as there are a number of rooms with jackpots ranging from 50p to £100.
Some of the free rooms are exclusively for people who have just joined or re-deposited some money after their first deposit but the others are free to play.
If you become a VIP on the site then additional free games with cash pots will be available to you.
It’s clear that a good effort is made on BGO Bingo to bring in new players and keep existing ones as there are always plenty of promotions and offers happening.
New players can bag an extra £20 of bingo money to play with when they make an initial £10 deposit and players who re-deposit some more also receive a percentage bonus.
Other offers on the site include giveaways of cash, M&S hampers, a years supply of sweets, household gadgets and iPads.
There are also some fun chat games which run daily and give you the chance to win prizes such as shopping vouchers, bingo money and real money while you’re chatting away and playing some bingo.
BGO operates a loyalty scheme which is basically automatic and rewards players with points every time they wager money on bingo or slots.
For some strange reason the site gives far more rewards for playing bingo than it does for playing slots and casino games but if you only play bingo then you’re in luck.
Once you start building up points you’ll get access to special VIP offers, VIP games and a weekly cashback deal.
The cashback offer gives you a percentage back based on your VIP level if you haven’t made a profit during the course of the week taking into consideration your account balance.
Ticket prices start at 1p and some of the jackpots, depending on the room of course, can be nice and high such as the £1000 Blue Moon game.
The progressive jackpots can rise even higher and luckily for the players they are something that BGO bingo has a lot of.
From the Vegas tab at the top of the site players can access plenty of gaming action besides bingo.
There are loads of slots on offer with all kinds of themes ranging from Robin Hood to Tombraider.
There is also a nice selection of casino games including Roulette, Video Poker, Table Poker, Baccarat and blackjack to tempt you away from the bingo rooms.
The site has a full and lively chat scene going on and, according to player feedback, the chat hosts are friendly and helpful to all roomies.
Help is available via a form on the site, email, chat or even post but one of the best ways to learn the ropes is to just have a go at the games and do a little chatting with your fellow bingo players.
