Bingostreet debuted as a popular bingo portal, the bingo geeks amongst you will remember that! Nowadays, since 2011, the brand is a fully fledged bingo site powered by the mighty Dragonfish network.
I've always liked the name BingoStreet and I think the theming of the site looks really neat. A lot of site themes seem to be an afterthought, however this theme seems to be well thought through. For instance, instead of the typical spin the wheel they have 'Shake the signpost', a nice nod to the site name which I feel makes the brand feel a little more sincere and special.
Signing up was easy, no card details required on the registration form and for once my submission was accepted on the first attempt, wohoo! Straight away I wanted to chase after my welcome offer of a 200% deposit bonus and more curiously, the chance to 'Shake the signpost', for upto £5! Although it's not strictly a welcome offer, it's also worth mentioning that this site gives you a rather generous re-deposit bonus of 50% on each deposit of a tenner or more after your 1st, this isn't something you find in many places nowadays.
Does it have a buzz?
Many of the sites I review feel stale, especially the networked ones. What I mean is, it feels as though they were setup and forgotten about, often there is little or no evidence of recent updates and the owners are just relying on the power of the network, affiliates and other means to keep players coming back.
It's great to see that Bingo Street has the buzz factor. Straight away on the homepage there is evidence of evidence of recent updates, a helpful little butterfly creature tells me the October promo code is GARDEN -It's current, bang upto date! BTW I'm not going nuts, there is an actual butterfly (or potentially a fly) on the page that told me this. On the same note, there is a calendar at the top of the page with todays date, clicking this tells me more about what is on - very pleasing to see this isn't a dead network site.
Bingostreet has quite a lot to shout about when it comes to promotions, the daily 'Joy Jackpots' should keep you smiling, with tickets priced at only 1P and jackpots of £100! There is also the 'Nosy Neighb-hours' game, which plays every day, hourly between 2pm and midnight. The game is in the 'Tuck Shop and 'No. 10 Club', cards are just 5P and the jackpot is £30 guaranteed. It's nice to see a networked site offering its own room names and promotions which are theme related.
For those of you after the Free Bingo, you're not going to find anything to rival FBL, but you will find daily games between 8am-10pm in the 'Penny Stretcher' tab, the jackpots aren't huge, but what were you expecting- oh and don't expect to play without making a deposit.
The slots and bingo..
Being a member of the Dragonfish network this site offers you arguably the most sought aftet slots on the net, we're talking 'Fluffy Favourites', 'Irish Luck' and of course the 'Aztec Community Rising slot' which pays out upto £5,000 at a time, pretty cool, eh! The bingo is also decent with very busy chat rooms and some of the industrys finest CM's.
It's rare that I actually enjoy a network site as much as I enjoyed Bingo Street. With themed promotions and room names and a special welcome bonus feature (Shake the Signpost) this site feels more like a stand alone, one off experience, like Tombola!
As I also said at the beginning, this site is bang upto date and someone clearly spends time on keeping it that way, it's really nice to see a winners page which features players photos and a snippet about who they are - this automatically makes me trust the site.
Overall, this is a site which proves that with good input from an owner (the updates and unique content) and the power of a network (play numbers/jackpot sizes) a networked site really can work well!
I suggest you get yourself down to Bingo Street, shake that signpost and play the night away, with 50% re-deposit bonuses the party might still be going when the sun comes up! It's no wonder this site won EGR's operator of the year award in 2013!
