Opened in May 2012, Nova Bingo claims to be an exciting site with a ‘brand new style’. The reality of the situation, however, is that Nova Bingo brings nothing new and valuable to the table at all. Quite simply, it’s another one of the hundreds of Cassava Enterprises bingo skins, which doesn’t have any exclusive promotions or bonuses.
Having said that, it’s easy to know exactly what you do get when you decide to play Nova Bingo, that is a safe and secure gaming experience, plus the ability to use some top-notch bingo software. They are fully licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission so you can rest assured that they are at least a somewhat legitimate brand.
New players who decide to make a deposit get a 100% bonus match up to £50 plus 50 spins. This means if you make just a £10 deposit, you will get £10 extra and a total of £20 to play, essentially doubling your balance.
The site claims to be futuristic and quite frankly, I will give them that. The design does have a futuristic/space type feel to it, with digital fonts, moons, and stars all featured in the design.
Personally, I am quite a fan of the logo, it looks pretty nice. That said, I feel like the rest of the site looks a little bit clunky and not to my taste.
Play bingo games 24-hours a day.

Bingo & Slots Games
When it comes to bingo games there is a clear lack of options. You have your standard 75 ball and 90 ball bingo games and that’s about it.
If you decide to play during non-peak hours, the bingo hall will be dead, with very few games going on, and most games having so tiny jackpots, it’s barely worth playing.
The saving grace is the free bingo games for real money, but even these games are severely limited. With no ability to win much money these games get boring fast.
When it comes to slots, the selection provided is actually pretty good. This has nothing to do with Nova Bingo themselves, just the fact they have licensed Dragonfish software to allow them to provide some top game titles like Starburst and Fluffy Favourites to all who want to play.
Nova Bingo has a couple of things going for it. First of all, the welcome bonus is decent, giving you some extra cash to spend on bingo, plus a chance to check out the slot games with your 50 spins. On top of that, the software is superb and you can 100% trust this site.
That is however where the positives end! The biggest drawback is related to the popularity of the site. Quite simply, there is not much going on here. Next, we have the promotions, what promotions? Essentially they offer nothing unique or new! The promotions are the same ones offered network wide and don’t constitute any added value.
Taking everything into consideration, I am happy to say that this is a decent bingo site, however, it’s not good enough for us to give a recommended rating. There are plenty of other websites that use the same software and are on the same network, which we think constitute superior value.
