Best Bingo Network (BBN) is a small confederation of around half a dozen titles. None are particularly big names either, with Biscuit, Gone and Wow Bingo maybe the best known. There’s clearly a bit of macho competition going on with their similarly sized and named competitors Better Bingo network (BBN). Here at Busy Bee, we await with great anticipation the “Best of All Network”, or the “Even Better than Better Bingo Network”. Anyway, BBN sites are all managed and designed by Cozy Games. All Cozy games sites are licenced and registered on the Isle of Man, so they all fall under the jurisdiction of the UK Gambling Commission. This means that they are all “whitelisted” and safe to play for players based in the United Kingdom.
Small it may be, but this network is nicely designed and rewarding to play. Cozy games “house style” is one of uncomplicated and basic designs. This may sound like very faint praise, but that is not the intention. Many sites can be a bit over-designed. A bit too glam and glitzy, with flashing neon and fluttering floating banners all over the place. It can all get a bit distracting. This is not the case on Best Bingo Network. It’s all very functional. Everything is in the right place and works smoothly, leaving you to just get on with the bingo. Another advantage of the smaller network is its friendly atmosphere. Because there are fewer players, it all seems a bit more homely somehow – cosy even. Maybe these sites do not have the mega jackpots some of the glamour sites boast, but because they are less busy, you have a better chance of winning. And how many times are those much heralded million pound jackpots on some other networks REALLY paid out?
So it’s horses for courses really. It’s like in the real world – some people love the showbiz and glamour of Las Vegas or Monte Carlo. Others prefer the more traditional charms of Blackpool or Clacton on Sea. Both are wonderful in their own way.
Best Bingo Network sites may be a bit on the quiet side for those that have a lower attention span, but they are smooth running and easy to find your way around. They are nicely differentiated too – each site has a very clearly defined theme, with a very different target audience. They’re certainly not all designed to the same template or framework. The bingo is varied too, with 90, 80, 75 and 30 ball bingo all on offer. There are plenty of alternative games to play too. All the typical payment methods are accepted, with some e-payment options as well. You can get started with just a fiver. Wagering requirements are typical for online bingo too. You will need to spend around four to eight times your deposit + bonus before making a withdrawal. This means that if you make a deposit of £20 and receive a bonus of £40 for example, you will need to wager around £240 to £480 in real money before making a claim. Also note that the minimum withdrawal amount is set quite high on this network, at £50.
Overall then, we quite like the unshowy charms of the Best Bingo Network. It won’t be for everyone, but for the more traditional player who just wants to concentrate on their bingo, it’s just fine.
