888 Bingo Review
Part of the 888 Holdings network of online bingo sites and powered by the Dragonfish software, 888 Bingo was first launched in January 2008, having gone through a number of redesigns to the current site still active today.
Predominantly various shades of blue with red highlights, 888 Bingo visually looks suitably up to date and although it is not the most attractive of online bingo sites, the layout and design is both clean and crisp, giving a good first impression. The main homepage has a slider featuring the latest bingo promotions, a bingo schedule and a list of top winners, with a couple of popular games also advertised at bottom of the page, such as X Factor and Deal or No Deal. The rest of site is easily accessed using the navigation menu located at the top of the page with links to join, promotions, games, winners, get points and help.
Visitors to the site can look around and see what games and offers are available, however before playing they must first register their details and become members. This is done via a three step process requiring a few details to get going, after which players are free to deposit and play any game they wish.
Games available to join in with are the standard Dragonfish selection and include 90 and 75 ball bingo rooms, casino games and slots, nothing out of the ordinary but a solid enough line up that are presented clearly and play well. Regular players can earn extra bonuses with an 888 Bingo loyalty plan that rewards players as they deposit and play whilst help is on hand for those who need it with a help tab, telephone number and email address giving members a number of options.
In a crowded market, 888 Bingo is a solid online bingo site rather than spectacular, what it does, it does well and is professionally presented, run and managed. Those who do choose to take the plunge and register will not be disappointed, although if you have played any of the other Dragonfish software based sites in the network just do not expect anything new.
Mobile & Tablet Gaming
Those who prefer to play 888 Bingo on a portable device are well catered for with a mobile optimised version of the site automatically displayed when heading to the usual 888 Bingo website address.
The site layout is a better fit for the smaller screen dimensions and offers almost the same experience as the bigger desktop version, with a slightly smaller selection of games which are clearly presented, load quickly and run glitch free. The only major difference between the two versions is that, unlike the desktop, those on mobile devices cannot see what the 888 Bingo has to offer first before registering.
There is currently no 888 Bingo app that can be installed from either the iOS or Google Play store although this is not an issue as the mobile version of the site is easily accessed with no need to install any software.
888 Bingo Social Media Pages
One aspect of 888 Bingo that has plenty of scope for improvement are their social media pages as they currently have none. For members looking for the latest gaming news they will find any information on the main website, not ideal but currently the only option available.
