bgo Bingo Review
About bgo Bingo
While at launch the site operated on its own unique software, in June 2015 bgo Bingo became the latest site to abandon its own platform and adopt the bingo and games set up of market leader Playtech (VF). The look of the site at home page level remained pretty much the same, but once inside it was a whole new ball game!
In July 2017 the site finally moved over to the Playtech HTML5 platform - among the last to do so knowing how popular the original software was with players. At the end of 2017 the site became one of the first to try and remove wagering requirements while still offering a form of welcome bonus and ongoing player incentives. Candy Points became the currency and although given out more rarely, spending with them incurs no wagering on any winnings.
Four exclusive bingo rooms add to the huge array of networked rooms, so existing players used to the exclusivity of bgo Bingo won't be disappointed.
There are lots of opportunities to win big in the many bingo rooms, on the bingo games and among the fantastic range of mini games. The site boasts a great bunch of chat hosts and lots of friendly players.
There is the Candy Club loyalty scheme lots of huge progressive jackpots. bgo Bingo is bigger and better than ever.
Look out for big names that try to part 'The Boss' from his money, such as Dan Bilzerian and Paris Hilton.
