It seems as though they are cropping up left, right and centre at the moment because yet again another new bingo site launches – Bid Bingo. This new bingo site has been developed by the GTECH G2 which is a division of the Lottomatic group. Bid Bingo has tried to diversify itself from the norm of Internet bingo as it has teamed up with Bid Shopping – a channel which you may have noticed lurking around somewhere on your digital television channel list. However the inevitable question of ‘is it any good?’ needs to be addressed…
…In short the answer is no. When you open the home page a pretty poor logo greets you and to be honest you really don’t feel like playing a game at this online bingo site as it’s not really that inviting. They want you to ‘join the fun’ however there really does appear to be little fun occurring on Bid Bingo.
Although this new bingo site might not be as good as its competitors it does reflect the fact that the popularity of online gaming is sky high. It can be a vicious game to get players to come to your bingo site so getting the name out there is vital. By teaming up with Bid Shopping it indicates that they want to reach more potential players as they believe the target audience betweeen bingo and Big Shoppping is the same.
In addition to this Bid Bingo have launched a television bingo advert to help to bring more players on board. As well as the advert Bid Bingo really want players on their site as they are also going to email the television channels client database, send letters to members, put leaflets in parcels and offer bingo promotions through the customer call centre.
