Simply Bingo is a mootastic site. Powered by Virtue Fusion and sporting a friendly and welcoming design, it seems like this site has a lot to offer. The site itself was founded in 2005 and has been making slow and steady progress since then. Yet to make waves in the industry, is there any hope for a resurgence in popularity of the site? Personally, we think not – read on now to find out exactly why.
As soon as I landed on the homepage, the first thing that caught my eye was the promotional banner for £1 free play (no deposit required) and a double your first deposit bonus, worth up to £50 banner.
The design of the site itself is incredibly friendly. The logo is a simple text-based logo with a cow motif. Why they chose a cow as their mascot I have no idea (And there is no reference to this on the site). Having said that, I really do like it, even though it leaves me a little bit puzzled.
In terms of usability, the site is reasonably easy to navigate and the sign-up process takes roughly 5-minutes. The only gripe I would say I had about the site design was that it looks a little bit dated, despite being charming.
Bonuses and Promotions
Bonuses and promotions are subject to change at any time. Please check the official website to verify their accuracy.
- £1 Free Play: New players are provided with £1 free no deposit required. There is one caveat to this however, you need to verify your card details in order to receive the free cash.
- Double Your Money: You will also receive a double your money bonus of up to £50. So if you want to claim it all, make sure you deposit the maximum £50 sum.
- Huge Jackpots: Up to £30,000 is given away in single games. How does a small bingo site like Simply Bingo do this? Well, it’s because they share ‘Bingo Linx’ games with other sites on the Virtue Fusion network.
Bingo and Slots Games
By virtue of being on the Virtue Fusion network (see what I did there), Simply Bingo offers a rather impressive selection of both bingo and slots games. Within the lobby you will find more than 10 different bingo rooms open, with prices starting from as little as a penny each, there is fun stuff to do for a player of almost all budgets. The thing is, though, most of these players are playing at other rooms on the network. For instance, when you play at Simply Bingo you share a player pool with other VF bingo sites like Ladbrokes, William Hill, and Sky. And when you are reviewing any VF site, you need to compare them to these established brands, and unfortunately, that is where Simply Bingo falls short. They simply can’t compete with the level of bonuses and promotions the big brands in the industry offer.
Having said that, you do get the luxury of playing all of the same games that are on these big brand sites. This means you get access to top slots titles like Iron Man, Deal or No Deal, Britain’s Got Talent and more.
The following websites operate using the same Virtue Fusion/Playtech Software:
For all the good Simply Bingo does, they just can’t compete with the big boys! The biggest area they lack in is the bonuses and promotions department. An effective 100% bonus does not cut the mustard in my eyes, even with reasonable wagering requirements, in order to get me to register at a bingo site, you need to give me more incentive than that. Add to that the fact that the site falls down in the design and implementation department compared to a big brand like Ladbrokes. It really does make it tough to endorse this site over the competition.
So although the site has been around since 2005 and has proved itself as a steady, safe and secure place to play. They are far from the best and as such, if you are thinking of joining this site, you would do much better by checking out some of the larger brands on the Virtue Fusion network. Taking everything into consideration, we say give this site a miss!
