First Impressions of Ahoy Bingo..
Whenever a new site launches on the Live Bingo Network, we never really get too excited. After all this network tends to churn out new sites every month and none of them really offer anything unique to you, the player.
As soon as you arrive at Ahoy Bingo you'll notice the site has a pirate figure in the logo, aswell as some bingo balls. Aside from the logo and a couple of palm tree silouhettes scattered around, this really is all the theming you're going to get.
After having a read around the homepage we've come to the decision that this is possibly one of the worst 'quick themes' we've ever seen, even the use of the English language on the homepage is poor, this gives a very unprofessional feel.
Here is some of the text taken from the homepage: 'there are players who are not competent enough for spending real money at bingo games' and 'play your favourite online bingo games with simple click of mouse'. This says a lot about this quickly cobbled together brand....
Ahoy Bingo offers a generous welcome bonus with £10 available with no deposit and a total of 1,150% worth of deposit bonuses over your first three spends!
The Welcome Package...
One of the strong points of this site is the welcome offer, it's pretty generous. As a new player you'll be awarded £10 with no deposit required and if you do decide to spend some money, your first three deposits will be covered by a % bonus which works as follows:
- 1st Deposit Bonus: 500%
- 2nd Deposit Bonus: 350%
- 3rd Deposit Bonus: 300%
The Bingo and Slots..
Ahoy Bingo offers a healthy selection of bingo and slots games, there are many different varieties of bingo on offer, including 30, 50, 75, 90 and many other ball variants. The bingo rooms tend to offer sizeable jackpots in the regular games and the player numbers in the rooms tend to be high. The CM's are very friendly and the chat flows well, which is a major plus point if you're looking for a social experience.
Currently the slots games, whilst plentiful, lack many of the best known titles, such as Fluffy Favourites or Irish Luck. We are told however that at some point soon these games will begin to be featured on the sites on this network, so hopefully we'll see them at Ahoy Bingo.
Daily Spin the wheel..
The daily spin the wheel is one of the positive features about this network. As the name suggests, every day you'll be given the chance to login and spin the wheel of fortune. The prizes include things like £1 free or free spins, nothing incredible, but we can't shake a stick at something for nothing and suggest you redeem your spin each day. It's worth noting that spins do not accumulate, i.e., if you are inactive for 7 days you'll only have 1 spin waiting for you when you login, not 7.
Don't expect anything unique from this networked site, the promotions that run on this site are the same as on the other 50+ networked sites. That's not to say they're bad, they're just not new.
Quite frankly as a reviewer it's a little frustrating to write about a new networked site which doesn't offer anything individual. In an ideal world all new bingo sites would bring something exciting and fresh to the bingo world, unfortunately with Ahoy Bingo this isn't the case. All you're getting is a lick of paint and a new logo.
We really don't feel that we can give this site a hearty reccommendation and neither do we feel it's going to sail the seven seas. HOWEVER, you may aswell go and claim the free money and have a go, after all, the game offering is strong, just don't expect any brand identity here.
Our best suggestion to you would be to try Landmark Bingo, we feel this is the best site on the Live Bingo Network.
