Bingo Boogie is the latest in a long line of online bingo sites that have made the change from Parlay Entertainment software to Virtue Fusion. Why there appears to be a mass exodus from Parlay to Virtue Fusion is unclear, however although Parlay still has many major clients including the St Minver network of online bingo sites it must be quite an alarming trend for the powers that be at Parlay. Bingo Boogie is looking pretty good and anyone who has played other Virtue Fusion online bingo sites will be very familiar with the set up.
The loss of the Bingo Boogie account and others may be having a knock on effect in the Parlay Entertainment accounts as the Q2 results announced in August for 2009 saw the company revenues fall from $2,633.941 to $768,072 and although the company expenses were down over the quarter it was not sufficient to soften the blow suffered from the fall in revenues for the same period. At a time when online bingo is thriving it is slightly worrying to see such a dramatic drop in revenues for one of the biggest software providers.
What does the new Bingo Boogie site deliver for the player?
For the regular Bingo Boogie players who don’t like change, the site has a familiar feel to it and lots of the things that were good have been left such as the bright lively graphics. The bingo rooms are much improved (well for those that prefer the Virtue Fusion software anyway!), but there are tons more rooms to choose from at the new Bingo Boogie site - although was a little disappointed that there didn’t appear to be the merest hint of a free bingo game anywhere to be seen! Actually that is not strictly true, there is an extremely ‘generous’ £1 free when you first sign up for an account!
Clearly Bingo Boogies would prefer their online bingo account holders to make a deposit as soon as possible because that is where things improve substantially. Players who make a first deposit can receive a 100% cash match of up to £250. As part of the Better Bingo Network the Bingo Boogie online bingo site is able to offer their account holders the opportunity to take part in the Bingo Linx games which provide fantastic jackpots of up to £10,000!
