Editor’s Note: In October of 2012, Xbingo redesigned their site and re-emerged as bgo.com. Player accounts were seamlessly transferred to the new site. We maintain this review here for archival purposes.
XBingo hits you the first time you lay eyes on their site. Graphically speaking, they have gone a very different route from many of the other online bingo sites out there. With beautifully rendered graphics that defy categorization other than a vague reference to a sort of “fantasy/space” theme, they have to be seen to be understood. On the business end of things, they are a part of the Mandalay Gaming Group, and are licensed and regulated by the Isle of Man.
Opening Your Bingo Account
To register an account at Xbingo, you will need to first decide on a username and password. Then enter your name, email address, date of birth, and choose a security question, such as your mother’s maiden name. To get started playing you can choose one of the several deposit options that they have and make your first deposit. They give new players 200% bonus on their first deposit. For every deposit you make, you can take one free spin on the Mega Wheel, where you can earn even more free bonus.
Much like the rest of the site, the bingo rooms at XBingo are very nice to look at. The game lobby, in particular, has an aesthetically pleasing layout that is very easy to navigate. The predominant colors are blue and purple with white contrasts. I was in a free room open only to new players, and they had two chat hosts working the room that were the funniest pair of chat hosts I’ve ever encountered. Another interesting thing about the XBingo bingo room I was in was that they had a female bingo caller, whereas many sites have the voices of men doing the calling.
Those who enjoy their experience at XBingo and want to stay and become a depositing player can choose from a few different deposit options. Deposit methods include Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, PayPal, and Ukash.
First time depositors at XBingo receive a 200% first time deposit bonus. After that, XBingo gives their bingo players a 50% deposit bonus on all reloads to their account
XBingo maintains a revolving group of promotions, so it is good to check in regularly to see what the latest offer is. Free bingo is always available with a room for new players, first time depositors, and other types of players. They maintain a “Happy Monday” promotion in their Golden Galaxy room every Monday, whereby from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM there are guaranteed jackpots of £50 for every game. That is £2,400 in guaranteed jackpots over the course of the 4 hours. There is a £1,500 Slots X-travaganza each week that gives cash prizes to the top 50 players, with £500 going to the winner. XBingo also typically has an “Out of this World” game running at the end of every month that gives away cash or prizes of £2,000 and more
XBingo is one of the best designed online bingo sites around today. They definitely put some work into creating a site that is both visually appealing and easy to navigate. They maintain a nice balance of regular promotions and rotating promotions. All in all, it is easy to recommend XBingo as a site to check out. To give them a spin, go to www.xbingo.com and register a new account.
