Jackpot Liner launched all the way back in 2005 and was the first online bingo site to offer their members a 3D virtual bingo world, using software from Leapfrog games. At the time this was an absolutely revolutionary idea, as it allowed their players to create their very own 3D avatar, which they could style and walk around Bingo Liner. The avatars remind us of the characters on the original ‘Sims’ game, which was launched back in 2000; however, disappointingly unlike the ‘Sims’ they don’t seem to have developed the graphics and therefore, haven’t improved the look of the avatars, which in our opinion makes them look a little bit dated – what do you think?
Even though we weren’t overly impressed with the overall look of the avatars we pressed on, as we were excited to see what it would be like playing in the Jackpot Liner ‘virtual’ bingo world. To start playing you first of all have to download the Bingo Liner software by following the on screen instructions. Now we know this may put some members off, as the majority of online bingo sites out there have now moved on from using downloadable bingo software; however, it only took around three minutes to download the game and then another 2 minutes to sign up; so for players in a hurry it won’t be too long for you to wait until you will be able to start playing.
Once you have signed up to Bingo Liner you will notice that your online bingo account has been topped up with a free £20 bingo bonus so it seems you'll even have some free spending money for your first outing. Giving out freebies as part of a sign up bonus is practically unheard of at the majority of other bingo sites, so this put a spring in our step straight away and we were actually rather excited when the lobby loaded.
Once the lobby loads you will find that your avatar is standing waiting for you in bar, which we imagine is located on a luxury cruise liner, from here you can move your avatar around the site, make a deposit, join in with some chat, or even customise your avatar by changing what he or she is wearing.
Bingo & games
Once we had familiarised ourselves with the lobby, we headed up the stairs into their game lobby, so that we could play a couple of games. The games lobby is easy to navigate around, as it basically consist of five different tabs – Bingo, Slots, Casino, Mini Games and Top Games. Simply click on the game you would like to play and you will be able to see a selection of different games. We picked ‘Bingo’ and decided to play in the ‘Big Ben’ room, as the tickets were reasonably priced at 10p each. We must have picked a good time to play, as we were able to also take part in one of the Bingo Liner chat games called ‘Quack Quack’, the aim of the game was to look out for the ball number 22. Once this ball number was called the first player to type ‘Quack Quack’ into chat would walk away with a bingo bonus – loads of fun.
In chat we liked the fact that Jackpot Liner automatically announced the winners of all the lines at the end of the game.
Slots of games
Bingo Liner also has a wide range of instant games up and running at their online bingo site, unfortunately you won’t see some of the more popular games such as Fluffy Favourites, Cluedo Slots, and Shamans Dream etc. However, you will find a whole bunch of new games, which we think players may find even more exciting. These include video slots and even the likes of Elvis slots! Top all this off with the chance to play in Mega Bingo while you're cruising with the Bingo Liner and you're beginning to see why so many players love to stay on board here.
Top Tourneys & Bonuses
If you like going against your fellow players in tournaments, then we think you are going to be pleased to learn that Bingo Liner also has a wide range of daily, weekly and monthly bingo and instant tourneys available at their site. Players can pick up some great additional cash prizes in these games. Once you have spent your free £10 bingo bonus, then you will want to think about making your first deposit. Simply make a first time deposit between £10 and £100 at Bingo Liner and they will triple it with a 300% bingo bonus. For example: If you deposit £10, then they will give you a fab £30 bingo bonus for free.
Hot or not?
If you would like to set sail on the seven seas and join one of the only bingo sites on the net that has their own 3D bingo world, then why not sign up to Bingo Liner? Certainly if you are bored to death of playing at same old, same old software of some of the more popular sites then Jackpot Liner might just do it for you.
