The Better Bingo network (BBn) is a small group of sites, including such names as Crown Bingo and Bingo Loopy. It’s easy to confuse this network with the similarly titled Best Bingo Network (BBN), but they are completely different as you can tell by the small “n”! BBn sites are all designed by Virtue Fusion, as opposed to BBN, who are powered by Cozy Games. Clear as mud? Anyway, every site on the Better Bingo network is registered and licenced on the UK channel island of Alderney, which is overseen by the UK Gambling Commission. It is therefore regarded as safe to play on any of these sites if you are located in the United Kingdom.
Virtue Fusion are not one of those flashy design companies featuring lots of complicated and noisily distracting graphics. Everything is a bit more relaxing and laid back. Adrenaline junkies with a low attention span will possibly need to look elsewhere. For the more traditional player, these well designed, smooth running but very two dimensional sites will do just fine though. 90, 80 and 75 ball varieties of the game are offered. In keeping with its traditional feel, the version of speed bingo supplied is not the expected 30 ball type, but just the normal game speeded up a bit. A novel and clever initiative some might say!
Payment options and wagering requirements are around the average for the online bingo industry standard. The usual Visa, MasterCard and Maestro cards are accepted, plus a limited choice of e-payment options. Wagering requirements are a competitive four times your bonus + deposit. This means that if, for example, you deposit £10 and receive an introductory bonus of £20, you will need to wager £120 (4 x £30) before you make your first withdrawal.
Overall, playing on a smaller network has advantages and disadvantages. You don’t tend to get the same prospect of truly life changing prizes and jackpots that are boasted about on the glamorous big networks. On the other hand, it’s a bit like the National Lottery vs Premium Bonds. You COULD win millions of pounds on the National Lottery (“it could be YOU!”) But the overwhelmingly astronomically probability is that you won’t. Whereas with Premium Bonds, you won’t win millions, but you have a much better chance of winning a nice amount that will really make your day (or year). So with a smaller network like BBn, the chances are you won’t win a million, but with fewer players to compete against, you are more likely to win at least something. The more low key atmosphere can also make the smaller networks that little bit more friendly and homely too.
So if you like your bingo the traditional way, as a good way to have a little flutter and a natter, and are not too ambitious in your desire for the champagne jackpot winner’s celebration, the smaller network could be the best option for you. And Better Bingo network’s sites are certainly worth considering: they’re well designed and with such varied themes, you should be able to find one that suits you.
