Dove Bingo Review
There has to be a point when the English language runs out of pleasant, inoffensive words to put before the word bingo to create the names for sites, but we are apparently no at that point yet, as proven by the existence of Dove Bingo.
Launched in July 2015, Dove Bingo has been on the online scene for around a year at the time of writing, and has developed a decent reputation, with a good number of regular players frequenting the site.
It’s a tough market to break into, and maintaining popularity is possibly even harder still, especially considering the constant stream of new sites that seem to be popping up on a daily basis.
This puts sites like Dove Bingo in a difficult position, how do you stay popular? What does Dove Bingo bring in terms of content to make sure it keeps the players it has and entices more along the way?
Design and theme
Promotions are based around doves here (there is a Pick a Dove welcome offer at the time of writing, a variation on the Jumpman Gaming opening offer, but with much the same result) which is certainly a good sign when it comes to a site immersing you fully in its theme.
The problem is the theme is just doves, not specific doves, there’s no cartoon-like dove character that has been humanised to help you relate to it, there are just some doves, which doesn’t really feel like enough.
That’s not to say that the site looks unattractive, because it certainly doesn’t, there are some genuinely nice touches here, the colour scheme is mainly blue due to the backdrop of a clear sky, there are a few different dove characters dotted around (again, not really with much in terms of backstory, but they’re fun looking doves), and navigation is very simple.
That being said, there could do with being a few games accessible from the homepage, this is a tactic that has worked for so many sites that it now feels like a negative if a site doesn’t have that.
To be honest, Dove Bingo does everything it has to be in terms of design and execution of its general concept, the problem is, it does absolutely no more than that, and there’s something about that which sticks in the throat a little.
Traditionally, bingo sites tend to bring games from a smaller variety of software providers than those offered by their online casino cousins, and Dove Bingo is no different.
However, you get more than one provider here, in fact you get three, Amaya, Eyecon, and Jumpman Gaming.
Bingo lovers will be happy to hear that 90 ball and 75 ball bingo are both here in abundance, with many different rooms to play in.
However, those same players may be a little disappointed to hear that these two types of bingo are all that is on offer at Dove Bingo.
Everything is pretty standard here if you’ve ever played at another 15 Gaming site to be honest, from promotions to gaming options. So if you have played at one of Dove Bingo’s sister sites, you know what to expect here.
If you are not familiar, there’s also a collection of slots on offer at Dove Bingo. The titles you’ll find here include Fluffy Favourites and Sugar Train, as well as a fair few others, but these are the titles that are carried by the majority of bingo sites, not even just those on the 15 Network.
Dove Bingo has nothing new about it whatsoever, and that’s a big problem, yes there’s stuff to do and fun to find, but it’s just the same idea in a different packaging, again.
