When Robin Hood Bingo launched it was a great concept and was backed up by some fun TV advertising. Since then while things have gone quiet on the advertising front the concept remains in place and the ethos of fun and friendliness is built in to the fabric of the site.
Take one fabled folk hero and a group of merry men and adoring medieval ladies and turn them into cartoons. This Robin Hood tends not to take from you, but to take from the operator and share out the spoils among players instead under the slogan of 'You play, we give away'.
To join in the fun during the birthday celebrations take advantage of our extra special welcome bonus offer. Register with Robin Hood Bingo from the WhichBingo page and get £20 of tickets to the special £777 Jackpot game. Then make a first deposit of at least £10 and get a further £50 bingo bonus, plus 10 bonus spins on Fluffy Favourites.
During the birthday period look out for your 'Birthday Lucky Bag' when you log in - these will contain even more bonus funds for you to enjoy.
Robin Hood Bingo is one of the nicest and friendliest bingo sites out there with a great range of both bingo games and slot games and offers good value for money. Happy birthday Robin!Discover more about Robin Hood Bingo

There has been something of a bingo void around The Jeremy Kyle Show since Foxy Bingo pulled the plug on its sponsorship of the programme, but that is about to be rectified by a new name that wants to be as big as the fox. Slingo Boom is the new sponsor of the show and is set to be around for some time following the signing of a 12 month deal with itv.
Slingo boom is the new way to play bingo. It is described as being 'fast fun at your fingertips'. The game is available at slots and casino site Slingo and is a mix of bingo and slots - as the name would suggest.
Many of the big names behind Gaming Realms who developed Slingo and Slingo Boom cut their teeth at Cashcade which managed the Foxy Bingo climb to success, so the fact they should take this action comes as no surprise.
The Jeremy Kyle Show airs weekdays at 9.25am on ITV and is one of the most highly rated daytime TV shows.Learn more about Slingo and Slingo Boom
Why igaming affiliates should consider SiGMA in 2017
We were honoured to be invited to attend the Summit of iGaming, Malta (SiGMA) event back in November 2016, especially when the invitation came from a trusted industry friend Marius Filip, previously of Evoke Affiliates.
Marius put us in contact with the organisers, who so very kindly offered to pay for the flights and accommodation, which we duly accepted; thank you! “But where’s the catch” I hear you say?
Well there wasn’t one.
A few months later, we’re Malta bound and attending SiGMA, but in a not so sunny Malta. Well you can’t have everything can you? Maybe that was the catch.
But over in Malta at the summit, we met with previously untapped potential for our business in bingo and slots. We met many new faces and businesses who were more than happy to talk business or discuss opportunities over a drink, or game of beer-pong!
And this year looks to be even better, with SiGMA returning in November 2017. According to our source, none other than the Romanian Chief of Relations in Malta; Mr Marius Filip, SiGMA will be doubling in size yet again. Even before the event, the organisers are showcasing their new venue with a tour on March 29th 2017 at MFCC, Ta ‘Qali.
And true to form yet again, the organisers are even paying for 1,000 free flights for new affiliates and top c-level executives in 2017, up from 300 last year.
So why should igaming affiliates consider attending SiGMA in 2017?
As the the organisers are saying in their recent communications, “people network better in a relaxed, fun environment; so we decided to make this our new slogan - simple, succinct and reflective of the true SiGMA spirit – “Enjoy Making Money”.
Oh, and in case you missed it, it’s in Malta too. I can’t recommend attending SiGMA enough. See you there!

In mid-2016 it was announced by The Rank Group Plc that they were to evolve smaller digital 'convenience' slots and bingo bars based in city centres, where possible, that were to attract the younger 18 - 35 year old potential player as spontaneous customers. Branded 'Luda' these venues would provide food and drink, including some alcohol, in addition to digital slots and bingo throughout the day and to midnight.
The plan was to have a small number of these venues live early in 2017 and they would be found in smaller premises on busy high streets around the country. However in the Rank half-year results for the six months ended 31 December 2016 it was stated that the 'multi-channel bingo brand Luda will go live later in 2017'.
It seems that the planners in the cities and towns targetted have not been too keen in the idea of mixing drinking with digital gaming in areas highly populated by bars and clubs. The results document stated:
"The Group has made several planning applications to secure sites for the new bingo brand, but to date applications have been rejected. Additional locations have been identified and the Group continues to liaise with landlords to secure the necessary approvals."
To this end we know plans have been submitted for a venue in Leeds across two ground floor units at The Cube, which is next door to the prestigious Light shopping and leisure destination in the city and in what was previously a bar anyway. Similar proposals are with councils around the country.
The costs for these Luda premises seem to be tightly controlled with the spend said to be around £900,000 culminating in the creation of around 25 jobs, which is the same as was quoted for what was to be the inaugural venue in Walsall.See what we know about the Luda concept
Gaming Realms is at the heart of developing new ways to play online games yet again with the release of Magic Mine. This game has been three years in development and is said to be ‘the first genuine skill-based real-money game' to find its way onto online slots and casino sites.
The aim of the game is simple. You have to collect diamonds by matching three or more in a row or L or T pattern. If you are familiar with Candy Crush Saga you will know what you have to do immediately. The more diamonds you collect in just 7 moves the better the prize. However, create a special chest with a match five collection and these will add more diamonds to your collection at the end of the game.
Gaming Realms has stated the game is based around artificial intelligence to power the competitive mechanism rather than standard random number generation technology.
Gaming Realms Chief Executive Patrick Southon said of the release of this new game,
