Originally known as Xbingo, Bgo.com developed from an in-house bingo platform. This wasn’t a great success and the site moved to the more popular Playtech software. It encompasses bingo, slots and casino and over time has grown considerably. It’s probably most well known as they hired the services of Verne Troyer to act as The Boss of Bgo.com! In addition, past advertising has featured Dan Bilzerian and Paris Hilton.
In October 2017 Bgo.com, along with it’s new sister site at Power Spins, introduced a brand new welcome offer and removed all wagering requirements. New players now get one free “fair spin” for every £1 deposited. The minimum deposit is £10 and the maximum is £50. Wins from the spins, which are valid for Aloha Cluster pays, Starburst, Shangri-La Cluster Pays and Hansel & Gretel, are paid out in cash. Note that a 50p min/2.5% tax offset fee and £2.50 withdrawal fee apply.
We’ve not seen a “tax offset fee” applied on other sites so that is something to be aware of from Bgo.com. On the plus side, there’s no maximum win on the “fair spins”. Other sites that offer no wagering spins or free spins will usually impose a maximum win.
Bgo.com started life as a multi channel site – with Macau, Games, Casino and Vegas joining Bingo. These days all the mains slots from the likes of Net Entertainment, IGT and Williams Interactive can be found under Casino making life a lot easier for the player. Among the top games featured at Bgo.com are Guns N Roses, American Dad, Raging Rhino, Drive, Monopoly Bring The House Down, Wheel Of Fortune on Tour, Steamtower, Jekyll and Hide and Rocky. At time of writing the site boasted over 500 slots!
Away from the slots you can also enjoy Blackjack, Roulette, Bacarrat, Table Poker, Video Poker and Live Casino. There are 56 options to choose from including 10 live games. One thing is for certain, you shouldn’t be short of games to play! The only thing really missing here is a bit of organisation when it comes to listing the games. There’s no real structure to the site, although you can see the newest games as well as those that have progressives.
Promotions have usually always been good at Bgo.com. In recent times they’ve offered trips to Las Vegas, gadgets and cash as incentives to get involved with tournaments and prize draws. For the rest of the time you can usually find an offer or too on their promos page. These tend to be more related to roulette or blackjack. For example (Feb 2018) first depositors on Live Casino can claim a £5 bonus (terms apply).
It’s fair to say that Bgo.com has grown considerably since it launched a couple of years ago. The high profile endorsements and sponsorship of things like Sky Sports News Late Night all help raise the brand’s profile. They’ve not had an easy ride though with fines imposed by UKGC and falling foul of advertising standards with their “Can’t Beat Me” campaign. The new no wagering policy adopted by the site is an interesting move.
