First there was the sign up war where UK online bingo sites competed for the best cash incentive to get new players to sign up, then there was the comparison of player numbers, now however there seems to be increasing signs of a 'keeping up with the Jones'-style expansion war appearing across the world of online bingo.
Do we really think size matters?
Having received news of three of the major names in UK online bingo having announced new rooms to their already large sites, it seems fair to assume that size does matter if you're an online bingo site. So, what's been going on I hear you ask?
Well, how about the news that Foxy Bingo has added a further twenty bingo rooms in the last week to it's existing forty? There are clearly very few other sites that could compare with an enormous sixty rooms, so while he would seem the outright winner in terms of sheer size, how about the latest from Cheeky Bingo?
Cheeky Bingo has in fact brought in two new free bingo rooms this week bringing the total this ground-breaking site has to six, and they have also added a new tab to their home pages' games section. This new tab take you to more games than ever and at only 1p and 2p, these are clearly a bargain! Never forget the fab Big Freebie room which sits on its own on account of the amazing £50 jackpots. This room is available only to depositing players.
Posh players aren't above a freebie either
Posh Bingo has also been getting in on the action this week introducing five more 90-ball rooms. These are all pre-buy rooms and you can buy cards in these new rooms for as little as 10p. There are plenty of free games to be played at Posh in the Freebies and Cash Crazy rooms, and you'll find free games in play between 6am and 1am everyday.
Has your favourite site had an extension built onto its already beautiful facade recently? What do you think of the rapid expansion of some of the top sites? While we love having choice of games here at the Hideout we worry that the players will have to fund extra rooms that prove less successful than others over time. Do you think that size matters when it comes to online bingo or do you prefer a small community to chat to? Let us know your thoughts on our forum and we'll keep our eye out for any planning applications that come our way...........
