Well bingo players Devilfish Bingo has at last launched and it’s looking pretty good. The home page is vibrant and a mile away from the pink and fluffy of some sites, in fact with the Devilfish Bingo parentage being poker and casino sites this has obviously had an influence as the site looks quite masculine, with a dash of purple and pink thrown in for the girlies! Players who already have an account with Devilfish Poker or Devilfish Casino will be able to use their existing account details. To open an account at Devilfish Bingo is a little trickier than some online bingo sites but with a bit of perseverance the new account is soon up and running. Making a deposit is relatively simple and there are various currencies available to deposit in including sterling so UK players need not be put off by the $ and € symbols displayed quite prominently on the home page. However when it comes to playing on the site all games are played in Euros.
Free Bingo bonus available - but don’t forget your bonus code!
New account holders at Devilfish Bingo will receive a 100% bonus, the bonus will be provided once a new account bolder has lost 95% of their first deposit cash. It’s worth noting that when you make your first deposit – which incidentally is a minimum of £20 – that players will need to ensure that they have entered the code BINGO50 at the cashier to receive the bingo bonus, otherwise it won’t be given. The writer did not notice this factor before making the deposit and so has lost £20 – schoolboy error! New players at Devilfish Bingo will be able to take advantage of some free bingo too with the Freebie Friday games which offer 5 free games with €10 available to win. The free bingo games take place in between 8.00 – 10.00 CET (7.00pm – 9.00 pm GMT) plus there is cheap as chips bingo everyday with 1c games and a pretty impressive €10 prize fund, these games take place at 8.00 CET (7.00pm GMT).
Dave maybe should stick to his day job!
Bingo Hideout readers will remember that we brought news of the prospect of a new bingo site from the people behind Devilfish Poker way back in May 2009, and as predicted in our earlier article the software is in fact powered by Parlay. There are 90 ball and 75 ball bingo games on the Devilfish Bingo site, however at the moment the games are under populated but we expect there will be a flood of new players once the news gets out about the fantastic new site, and the jackpots will grow too. There are lots of side games to enjoy including mini slots, slots, scratch cards, video poker, keno, craps, blackjack and pull tabs. Pull Tabs will allow players to select their lucky numbers and possibly win lottery style. The bingo caller is none other than top UK born poker player Dave ‘Devilfish’ Ulliott – and we have to say that for traditional UK bingo players this is not going to be a particularly good choice. It certainly is horses for courses and Dave ’devilfish’ Ulliott is certainly not the horse for this course and will most likely send the average bingo player to sleep with his rather monotone style of bingo calling. Still this is only a minor point, the Parlay 5 software is fab, as you might expect - though if the bingo calling is not for you selecting to have the sound off in the game options will be the best decision. Overall as new bingo sites go the Devilfish Bingo site is not all that bad, go on have a go just dont forget that bonus code!
