Bingo Cove, and all of the brands on the Dragonfish network have recently lost the Team Bingo promotion but in it’s place comes a new deal for players called the Two Million Race. The latter focuses on individual achievements at the sites rather than the team effort of Team Bingo. We believe the whilst some will be disappointed to find the team games no longer available, the majority of players won’t even notice it has gone.
We suspect that the decision to remove Team Bingo came because of the change in players. The online game doesn’t seem to be quite as sociable as it once was, with some suggesting that the introduction of mobile bingo is partly responsible.
This could certainly be the case although we are more inclined to think that the effort is not being put into creating a community anymore, certainly at Dragonfish brands. Sit in the chat room of Bingo Cove or other brands and the interaction is between players and the host is usually limited to the chat games or players posting 1TG, 2TG etc and the hosting posting macros.
This inevitably changes the dynamics of the room and creating teams for Team Bingo probably became more difficult, thus resulting in fewer teams and making the promotion less viable for the operator.
Give them their due though, rather than just removing the loyalty points (points can be exchanged into bonus funds) from the sites, they have created a new promotion that seems to suit a players need better.
About the 2 Million Race
Players earn points for the leaderboard by completing the tasks below:
- Win bingo on the Pound Sign pattern – 25 points
- Every £1 spent on bingo – 1 point
- Win bingo on the number 2 – 5 points
