Glossy Bingo Review
Glorious Bingo is operated by superb Dragonfish software, which is also used on some of the most popular sites around including 888 Ladies and Costa Bingo. You will find everything from 75 ball to 90 ball bingo games, free games, penny games and huge jackpot games. Glorious Bingo isn’t a name everyone will have heard of, as it is one of the smaller players in the online bingo industry. Despite this though, it still manages to offer pretty much everything a keen bingo player could ask for, from a large selection of different bingo rooms, through to some impressively large prizes.
Glorious Bingo gives punters access to the classic bingo formats of 90-ball and 75-ball games. The latter is played with pattern bingo mechanics, which means each game has a pre-determined design that you need to complete in order to win.
Glossy Bingo launched in January 2013, and runs on the Microgaming software. The homepage is rather distinctive, featuring a gossip magazine on the coffee table complete with distinctly non-glamorous coffee cup rings.
Registering is fairly straightforward and quick – usual info is required, but you don't need to enter your financial details before you start playing.
At time of press, the site was offering a limited amount of bingo – 75 ball and 90 ball, and even then, 75 ball was only available in the evenings. However, as the site increases in popularity, this may change. If you get bored of the small choice of bingo, you can hit the slots which include well-known titles like the Dark Knight, and Mega Moolah.
Somewhat disappointingly, the site offers the standard Microgaming promotions too – there's a blatant lack of heart-racing competitions like iPad/holiday/car giveaways. I love an exclusive bingo offer, and Glossy loses some of its shine thanks to this fact.
Having said that, one player did win £5.8 million on a Microgaming slot recently, which is reassuring to know – big winnings are possible, and do happen.
A fairly average selection of 90 ball and 75 ball.
Plenty of excellent slots though, resplendent with multi-million pound progressive jackpots. In the Dark Knight, which is the official Batman slot, you can win up to 4,000,000 coins. In Mega Moolah, there's a multi-million pound progressive jackpot. Fruit machines include Billion Dollar Gran, Bingo Bango Boom and Mermaid's Millions.
Launch a small selection of blackjack, video poker, roulette, and scratchcards from your main game window to boost your odds of winning.
Glossy runs on the standard Microgaming software. You don't need to make a download before you start playing. The software is predictable enough, but nothing special – chat appears on the left-hand side of your screen, and cards in the right. The layout is somewhat cluttered, confusing, and not particularly easy on the eye, thanks to a harsh red and white colour scheme, in keeping with the Glossy logo. A cheesy fanfare plays when you win. On the upshot, the male caller has a classy voice – what a smooth talker he is.
The site is meant to have glamorous gossip magazine theme, but the cheap design, along with red and white fonts make it look more like a trashy tabloid. This is not the sophisticated and polished site you are looking for.
Meet the G-Team of Glossy Bingo. This group of three characters all have names beginning with G – Gabby, Gillian, and Greg. They'll throw the best chat games your way, and answer your queries via email, telephone, or live chat.
So, the variety of bingo may be limited, and the design may be trashy, but at least you can be assured of a safe and secure experience when playing at a Microgaming site.
Glossy is regulated by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta, and is owned by the same group that bring us Butler's Bingo – Broadway Gaming.
