You've probably heard me say before that I never was a big fan of bingo
before the advent of online gambling. Yes indeed, my opinion about bingo has
certainly changed. In fact, I probably know more about online bingo than most
people. Seriously, you would have to be off your knockers if you still think
bingo is for old people (no offense, old people). Bingo of the internet
persuasion is almost as edgy as online casino gambling. Whoever would have
thought there'd be a Desperate Housewives Bingo Room? I rest my case.
Even online casinos are starting to see the increasingly mainstream appeal of
bingo. Take for instance, 32Red, which is one of the most popular UK/European
facing online betting sites today. Take note that I said "online betting site"
and not just "online casino". That's right, in addition to an online casino,
32Red also operates a poker room, mobile casino (that's an online casino
compatible with mobile cell phones), and yes, a bingo room.
So, this being the bingo blog and all, I thought I'd tell everybody a little
bit more about 32Red's bingo platform and hoard of bingo promotions, including
free sweepstakes draws.. I know, I
said the word horde (maybe I'm the old person after all).
Let's start off with a closer look at the bingo software itself. If you are
at all familiar with 32Red, you probably know that its online casino is powered
by Microgaming. Well, guess what? So is there bingo platform. That means you can
count on the same innovative technologies and graphics that
casinos are renowned for. The bingo cashier accepts several deposit methods,
including credit/debit cards, Neteller, UKash, MoneyBookers, Eco Card and Wire
Transfer - all processed through a secure 128-bit encrypted SSL server. A
familiar and trustworthy UK name, Barclay Merchant Services is charged with
facilitating and overseeing secure transactions.
As for the software platform itself, it is strictly a Flash platform, meaning
no download is required and all you Mac user's can play too! The software allows
you to play multiple cards at a single time, and Real time chat is enabled in
every game. 32Red will allow you to try out the software for free without any
obligation to make a real money deposit. Simply open a "Fun" account and start
playing bingo with unlimited credits until the "2 fat ladies" sing (there's some
bingo lingo fo ya!).
So what about these promotions I mentioned earlier? Well, aside from going to
the promotions page on 32Red's bingo website to see the long list for yourself
32Red Casino and click on the Bingo tab), here's what I found: Just for
opening an account, 32Red offers a true no-deposit bonus of £10 Free. Or, you
can take a traditional online casino bonus of 100% up to £100 Free on your first
deposit. Every month thereafter, 32Red offers a 25% loyalty bonus up to £25 free
on every deposit.
On top of all this, there are Refer a Friend bonuses, monthly prize draws,
bingo sweepstakes and chat bonuses. For all you sweepstakes hunters out there,
all you have to do is play a minimum of 10 games per month and you will be
entered in their monthly sweepstakes draw for free cash.
