A little known fact about Fabulous Bingo is that it was previously branded as the bingo site for News of the World, which closed in 2011. In September it relaunched with a fresh brand, approach, design and renewed hunger for excellence. Due to the fact that they are both owned by News corp, Fabulous Bingo shares a lot of similarities with Sun Bingo, which we also recently reviewed. Nonetheless, the have plenty of merits themselves and are worthy of your consideration during your search for an operator to play with over the long term.
Oh dear, News corp. Your design team have a lot to answer for. Fabulous Bingo have committed the same faux pas as Sun Bingo by placing a video on a splash page that plays as soon as you reach their website. This is highly annoying, especially if you’re a headphone user such as myself or you were listening to music. Thankfully, they haven’t gone for a harsh, contrasting colour scheme. While the site is extremely colourful, the brilliant white background and black navigation keep it all clean and organized. Navigation is a piece of cake, with all the features of the site relatively easy to find within a few clicks.
Nothing particularly negative here besides that video, which seems to be a promotional piece so probably won’t be a permanent fixture of the site. A pretty solid offering in this department, which was a pleasant surprise.
Fabulous Bingo runs on the Gamesys software, which runs a select few of the UKs top bingo sites such as Jackpotjoy, Sun Bingo and Heart Bingo. Even Caesars Palace have their bingo solution powered by Gamesys, so you know the quality is there. As with most operators 75 ball, 80 ball and 90 ball bingo all come fitted as standard. There are plenty of progressive jackpots on offer for those that like to target the bigger winnings as well, so in terms of bingo everyone is covered!
You will find plenty slots on offer as well, some of which are exclusive to Sun Bingo and Fabulous — such as Mystic Meg. Perhaps the best of the slots on offer though is Valley of the Kings, which boasts a staggering 50 paylines and a possible jackpot of £150 from a 10p spin! Great stuff!
A Fabulous 200% first deposit bonus (see what we did there?) to the tune of £100 awaits you! The very respectable offering is available to all new players, which represents great value for money! The offer is valid for all deposits over £10 and then opens up the possibility to enjoy a second deposit bonus of 50%. Every little helps!
While Sun Bingo is probably the more popular of the two sites, we actually feel that Fabulous Bingo is the better offering. A relatively impressive website, solid software and highly respectable bonuses make for an enticing package that will make even the most loyal bingo player second guess their current “favourite site”.
