M8ts Bingo was launched in May 2012 by Quizzino, an online gaming business specialising in producing and launching social gaming products. With directors from strong media backgrounds, including former Head of Channels at Sky Bet, Pete Ward, and former Executive Producer for Endemol, David Housham, there are high expectations for M8ts Bingo.
Landing on the homepage of M8ts Bingo, the player is greeted by a glossy, bright sea of sparkly hot pink. M8tes has definitely been designed with a certain market in mind – the female, twenty or thirty something Bingo fan who enjoys the social aspect of Bingo just as much as the gameplay. There is no doubting that they hit this potential market bang on with their choice of colours, friendly and bubbly graphics and simple homepage navigation.
M8ts offer a £5 free play option when you first sign up, a great treat. With Bingo cards for certain games starting at just 10p, this can give you a lot of game play! However, if you are new to online bingo, you may find the sheer quantity of groups, options and games a little confusing, so it is advisable to take a few minutes exploring once you have signed up and entered the lobby.
Once in the lobby, your profile will be displayed on the left hand side, which you can update with pictures, descriptions and deposits. There is also a Message and M8ts facility too, where you can add players to your friends list. Then, you can navigate around the multitude of Rooms, Groups and Games via the tabs and choose your gameplay accordingly. The Bingo rooms all have detailed chat and player lists too, so you can join straight in.
What is brilliant about M8ts is the social aspect. The bingo chat facilities are incredibly advanced and the online players really social, too – so if you are confused or stuck you can ask other players for help. The sense of community amongst the players is what really makes this game stand out, and it is certain real life friends will be made here. You can link it to your Facebook too, and share your wins with your friends too.
As it is a new site, M8ts is offering some great bonuses. As well as a £5 free play, they offer a deposit match of up to 250%, a Refer a Friend bonus of £5, plus regular promotions to tie in with current events (such as an Olympic Countdown).
M8ts Bingo is definitely a refreshing new addition to the online Bingo community, and will appeal to experienced Bingo players who enjoy interacting during their gameplay. However, newcomers may find it a little overwhelming, but by sticking with it, players are guaranteed to find the experience fun and will certainly go back again.
M8ts Bingo Review – Bingo Games
M8ts Bingo is powered by Parlay software (probably chosen because of the social nature of the site), and offers 75 and 90 ball bingo. You can choose whether to autodaub or not, whether to sort or highlight your cards, and currently there is a wide choice of free play Bingo games alongside the 75 ball and 90 ball options.
Good room choice and lots of themes make gameplay fun and varied, and the interaction with the room players and host makes you feel immediately at home. Plus, card prices start at just 10p and average 25p for 75 ball bingo, so the play is cheaper than a lot of sites.
M8ts jackpots are quite low, and Bingo cash pots currently hover around the £50 – £150 mark. M8ts make it clear however, their main aim is for sharing the fun of the game, rather than the biggest wins.
However, once they hook players on their social networking type gaming style, player traffic – and therefore jackpots – are sure to increase with time so it is worth sticking with.
As well as offering a £5 free play and 250% welcome bonus, there are some great on-going awards too, obviously to entice new players to try the site. These include:
- A Mystery Gift – A bonus of £5-£10 after you place your first deposit.
- 50% re-deposit on your second and third deposits.
- Group Payouts – sharing a group cashpot.
- Shopping Vouchers.
As well as bingo, M8ts also offers a small online casino, which consists of a handful of slots, Roulette and Poker options. Although this is unlikely to attract the experienced gamer, the Bingo player may fancy a play around these other games for a change, making it a neat addition.
