Over the last few weeks, we have seen quite a few changes in the world of online bingo. We’ve seen a shake-up of the free bingo offering from Dragonfish, a change in their jackpot schedule and an array of bonus changes.
In amongst all of that, we have seen bingo site closures, new bingo sites and coming soon bingo brands reported on too.
The bingo site closures that we have seen were to be expected for a number of reasons one of which is that sites are feeling the pinch of the introduction of the new bingo tax on free plays in August 2017.
Other reasons will be that there’s a lot of work to be done to make sites compliant with the new expectation of the Gambling Commission too.
Bingo Site Closures
The majority of site closures, in fact, all that we know off since October 2017, have all been powered by the 888 / Cassava software. The highest number of those closures have been Cashcade brands that have all been redirected to Think Bingo.
We have lost Graces Bingo, Kiss My Bingo, Offer X Bingo, Peachy Bingo, Female Bingo, Top Ten Bingo, Bingo Broadway, and Little Big Bingo from the Cashcade camp.
From the Dragonfish network, we have said goodbye to Jackpot Bingo, the original Kiss My Bingo site, KS Bingo, Banana Bingo and Postcode Bingo. The latest closure was Snap Bingo on 21st January.
However, whilst we have lost quite a number of sites, we have seen new bingo site launches too.
New Bingo Sites
These are just a few of the new bingo sites that have launched over the last few months:
- BJs Bingo – launched December 2017 on the 15 Network
- Goldy Bingo – launched November 2017 on the Live Bingo Network
- Kozmo Bingo – launched December 2017 on the Dragonfish Real Money Network
- Small Bingo – launched January 2018 on the Dragonfish network
- Duck Duck Bingo – launched in November 2017 on the Dragonfish Real Money Network
- Aunt Bevs – launched December 2017 on the Dragonfish Network.
Coming Soon Bingo Brands
As well as the new bingo sites that have launched, there is also a number of coming bingo sites that we have heard of that are coming soon. Although little is known about each, these are the names that we are expecting to launch soon:
- Yay Bingo
- Bingo Besties
- Jungle Bingo
The landscape of online bingo is ever changing and as time progresses, we will likely see more bingo site closures but also more new bingo site and game launches. This is what is so fantastic about online bingo.
