bgo Bingo Review
bgo, pronounced Be-go, used to be X Bingo. But it's not just a name change players can expect – this site underwent a radical revamp as of October 2012. If you played X before, you will remember it had a blue Avatar-fairy theme, along with exciting new bingo promotions every month, where you could win holidays, gadgets, goodies, and all manner of splendid prizes from just a couple of pennies a ticket. You can still do this at bgo – indeed, at the time I was reviewing the site, you could win a James Bond experience, a trip to Blackpool for the Illuminations, an annual Alton Towers pass, and even a year's supply of Haribo.
Most tickets cost either 1p or 2p, and you can still play loads of hot slots like Monopoly, and the £100,000 Pyramid.
And if you want to find out how bgo will treat you to champagne and lobster, read on.
Along with traditional 75 ball and 90 ball, explore links to Vegas games, and a well-stocked casino – if you are looking to extend your repertoire of gaming skills, then they are certainly worth a nosy.

On the downside, the homepage of bgo has a slightly odd layout, and it's fairly easy to get lost while you are navigating around. It's broken down into Bingo, Vegas, Casino, Friends and Help in a horizontal menu across the top. Each of these has subsections, and in the subsections, there are lots of other pages. It really pays to explore the site before you start playing, because you could miss the details about things like the Super Jackpots. For instance, in Rainbow Riches, tickets are just 10p for a £500 game.
The software itself is dream to use – nothing out of the ordinary, and the animations, smileys, and chat features take a wee bit of getting used to if you are used to playing elsewhere. A thoroughly pleasant experience, and the chat moderators were lovely.

Fancy champagne and lobster? This could be happening to you if you join the Platinum ranks of the loyalty scheme. Most VIP schemes are relatively dull, promising nothing but extra points, and your own 'personal adviser'. However, it's nice to see that the team at bgo have injected a little fun here as well. Platinum is the top tier, and if you reach this, you will get 20% cashback, invitations to special events, and even a Champagne and Lobster dinner.
