Back in January 2010 the whole of the St Minver network made a move away from the Parlay Entertainment software to the G2 Gtech platform. There are numerous sites now using this software but the two most well known are probably Butlin’s Bingo and ChitChat Bingo. This change brought with it a whole host of new features with the main one being the addition of 75 ball bingo rooms, something that had been really holding them back for a long time, as a lot of players prefer the fast paced action of a pattern based game.
The software does not really do anything game changing, but it does look good and works well with the minimum of fuss, although you might sometimes find it takes rooms longer to load than you would normally expect. Nevertheless, there are a few useful features included being able to add your friend to a buddy list, so you can see when they come online and the ability to complete a very basic profile, so people can learn a bit more about you. One nice feature that adds to the excitement of the place though is the ‘Countdown to Bingo’ which shows a list of the number of balls each player needs to win in the top left hand corner of the room.
The G2 Gtech now also includes a mobile platform that can be accessed on any modern smartphone or tablet device. There are no apps top download, simply head to the web address of your chosen site on your mobile browser, and you can use your existing log in details to enjoy two 75 ball bingo rooms, one 90 ball bingo room and a selection of their most popular slots games.
The biggest stumbling block for the G2 Gtech software though is their whopping wagering requirements, which require you to wager a massive 10x the deposit you receive before making a withdrawal. Unfortunately the software is just not special enough and quite simply does not offer enough unique features to warrant such a high amount.
