The world of online bingo is expanding all of the time, with new sites launching on a weekly basis. There are now nearly three hundred different brands, all vying to catch your eye and get you through their virtual doors. With players having so much choice, it is becoming harder and harder for sites to stand out from the crowd and offer something new. Two new brands that have hit our screens this month are Bingo Hotpot and Top Class Bingo, so we thought we would take a look and see if they succeed where so many others have failed.
Bingo Hotpot is powered by the Cozy Games software and is one of the sites that make up the Live Bingo Network. Their homepage is confusing to say the least, with a dark green colour scheme and a blonde gentleman in what can best be described as a St. Patrick’s Day outfit. The rest of the site is cluttered and not very well designed at all; the whole thing feels very amateurish. On the plus side, they do give you £15 for free so you can sample the site and your first three deposits are all earn you higher then average bonuses. Bingo Hotpot offers nothing more then any of the other sites on the network, if you are a fan of Cozy Games you are sure to have fun, but they are never going to set the world on fire.
The second new bingo site to fall under our spotlight is Top Class Bingo, and first impressions are certainly more promising. The site runs on the 888/Globalcom software and is part of the Dragonfish network. The homepage looks great with a purple and gold colour scheme, and true to their word it does look classy. The quality of the gaming is assured by the software, and the network provides them with a good range of promotions including free bingo and plenty of guaranteed jackpots. The good news is, in addition to the standard promotions, they also have a couple of specials that are exclusive to players on the 8BG network. This may not be a game changer, but at least it shows they are making the effort to offer something a little different and we commend them for that.
