Bingo 7 is the fourteenth brand to launch on the 15 Network. We presume the name has its roots in ‘Lucky Seven’, because not only is it one of the traditional bingo calls, but the number is also considered to be a lucky in some cultures. Unfortunately the design of the site does little to reflect to this and we can’t help but feel they could have made more of an effort to make it feel special. The blurb at the bottom of the page is even more confusing, as it seems to be a mix of double entendres and obscure film references, neither of which are related to the site at all.
At the time of reviewing, the site has only been open for a couple days, but they already have quite a following, largely thanks to their activity on the social networks over the past of months. The Bingo 7 homepage follows the networks standard layout and is made up of a series of banners displaying their latest offers and a selection of their most popular game. You can’t help but notice their welcome offers, which include the chance to spin the wheel and win a small fortunes worth of bonus money, before you have even stepped inside for the first time.
If you click on the ‘Community’ link on the menu, you might expect to find an interactive section where you can find out a bit more about the players and the site and maybe some kind of social networking interaction. What you will actually get though is a bingo blog, which is a great idea, but unfortunately once you are there, there is no way back to the main site as even the Bingo 7 logo at the top of the page just keeps on taking you back to the blog.
Click on the ‘Join Now’ button and you will be taken to the registration page. This is the standard affair where you have to enter your name, address and email etc. You will also need to come up with a username, and this will need to be different to any one you have used on the same network. At this stage you do not need to enter any credit card details, but to be honest there is not a lot you can do until you fund your account. At the moment the only way to do this is via a debit or credit card, as they do not offer any of the secure online methods you may be used to.
Head into the lobby and you will find five tabs; 90 ball bingo, 75 ball bingo, Jackpots, £500 Newbies JP and Instants. Clicking on any of these tabs and you will be presented with the rooms available and all of the important information you need it there including the number of players, how long until the next game starts, the estimated jackpot and the price of the tickets. In the top tight hand corner of the lobby you will see a select of mini games, covering Slots, Table Games, Scratchcards and Instants. You can also access the banking area of the site from here, which is always handy for topping up your account.
The rooms themselves look great, set against a star filled sky. The whole left hand side of the screen is dedicated to your cards. You can clearly see the balls as they are called, a breakdown of the games jackpot and even the value of the progressive jackpot that keeps on growing until it is activated. The right hand side of the screen is where you will find the chatroom, where you can enjoy a bit of banter with fellow players and add them to a buddy list as they become friends. To the right of the chatroom you will see something called the Streak Buster and this is a little addition to the site, designed to reward unlucky players!
At the moment, Bingo 7 is nothing more than a standard network site, and we can’t see any reason why someone would choose to play there instead of Tidy Bingo, which is on the same network but has a lot more to offer in terms of exclusive promotions. But, we must remember that this site is very much in its infancy and has only been open for a few days. Bingo 7 is definitely a site you should keep an eye on in the future as they have the potential to be one of the stars of the network, it will just take a bit of imagination and a lot of hard work.
Bingo 7 Review – Bingo Games
Game Options at Bingo 7
Bingo 7 is one of the many sites opting for the Jumpman Gaming software, which you may know of if you have played at sites such as Lights Camera Bingo, Showreel Bingo or Zingo Bingo. There are no options to customise the actual look of your game, but you can choose to manually mark your tickets and have them sorted so the ones nearest to a win are always visible. The software includes a handy autobuy facility, and you can set it up for the number of games, the number of tickets and the maximum price you are willing to pay.
You have a few more options in the chat room though as you can change the size and colour of the font you use, and even freeze the chat to give if everything is moving a bit too fast for you; This can come in really handy when the room is full and you are trying to read the chat game rules before they disappear off the top of the screen. There is a great range of emoticons and acronyms built in to save you all of that repetitive timing.
Bingo 7 has a schedule packed full of guaranteed games, and with cards starting at just 2p each, everyone can afford to take part. For a start there is the 90 ball Daily Dosh game that takes place each evening at 7pm with a £25 prize pot. Every Monday night and Friday night there is £150 worth of prize money up for grabs. Tuesday night is treat night and you can win up to £100 from tickets costing just 10p each.
The Payday Loan game takes place on the last day of every month for a cool £1,000. If you are one of their VIP players though, there is an exclusive game just for you, and you could win up to £500 cash on the 1st of every month. If you are one of their new players and you make a deposit, you will be able to access the Community Room on a Friday night at 9pm, for a special game where you can win a share of £500:
- Full house – £200
- Two lines – £125
- One line – £75
- 1TG and 2TG – Split £100
From the moment you join Bingo 7, you will be rewarded in a number of different ways. For a start, they host a Lucky Lotto game every Wednesday night at 7pm in their Lucky Stars room. To join in the fun, simply select three ‘B’ numbers, email them to support@Bingo7.co.uk and then buy a ticket for the game. As soon as you see your three numbers come up, type “LOTTO” and claim your Loyalty Points. Every 1,000 points you amass, can be redeemed for £1 worth of free bingo play.
They also operate a Bingo 7 VIP scheme, and this is based on five different levels; Regular, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Black. As you play, you will earn stars, and the more you accumulate, the further you will progress through these levels. As you go, you will unlock extra benefits including:
- Higher re-deposit bonuses
- Birthday Bonuses
- Mystery Gifts
- Exclusive VIP games and jackpots
Bingo 7’s promotions at the moment are restricted to those offered by their network, but as the site has only just launched at the time of this review, that could very well change. Nevertheless, they are home to a decent mix of special offers, in addition to those guaranteed jackpots detailed above. Monday night is sheer madness and Bingo 7 throw the ruled book out of the window and swap everything around. This means the biggest share of the pot goes to the one line winner and the full house winner walks away with the money usually reserved for one line.
Friday night is the busiest night of the week with a party running between 8pm and 10pm, with loyalty points and chat games coming at you like lasers on the dance floor. At 8pm there is the Friday Fever game with a £150 prize pot, and they even give you the chance to win a takeaway worth £50, that will be delivered right to your door at the time of your choice the following week. To help you recover over the weekend, you are asked to come up with a Golden Number, and if you then go on to bingo on it, you will scoop a lorry load of loyalty points.
