Eyes Down Bingo is one of only a handful of sites powered by the Parlay Entertainment software, which has declined in popularity over the years. Along with four other sites, they make up the little known The Gaming Network (otherwise known as TGN). Land on the homepage and you will find an extremely pink colour scheme with a few accents of blue, but to be honest we are not sure they are enough to stop the male bingo players making a quick dart for the exit!
Nevertheless, everything is nicely designed with the main focus being three large banners advertising their welcome offers, featured promotions and featured games. Towards the bottom of the page you will find a bit of a blurb about why you should give Eyes Down Bingo a try, such as their generous bonuses and the variety of games available. There is actually two menus, one down the left hand side of the screen and one running along the top. We are not exactly sure why they have done this as some of the links are duplicated, so finding your way around can be a bit confusing.
Registering for an account will take no more then a couple of minutes and is a simple one page process. Unless you are a fan of the Parlay Entertainment software, the odds are you won’t experience any of the usual networked sites problems of duplicate usernames. The sign up process if straightforward and you don’t even have to enter any credit card details as they welcome you with a bundle of bonus money for free so you can get a feel for the place. If you do decide to play for real, there are plenty of depositing options and you will receive a higher then average first deposit bonus and reloads on all future deposits.
Head into the lobby you will find very few bingo rooms, the software does provide for 75 ball, 80 ball and 90 ball bingo but unfortunately most of the rooms are only open at certain times of the day. You would think this would result in more players in the rooms that are open, but at the time of reviewing the site (4.30pm) there is just thirty three players online and they are split between two rooms; Really not great when you consider that five sites are all feeding players to this network.
The rooms themselves are actually very nice, and they make a real change from the normal software providers we see all too often. When you first you enter, you will see that the left of the screen is empty but don’t worry this is not a fault. Using the three little round buttons at the top of this section, you can access the chat room, the games menu and a full games lobby, and they all open up to fill this vacant space. The right hand side of the screen is dedicated to your cards and there is a handy Auto Buy feature if you need it.
Promotions at Eyes Down Bingo are very hit and miss. If you are a fan of prizes such as a gadgets and holidays then this is really not the site for you. They do offer limited free bingo and a few guaranteed jackpots, but their main focus seems to me on rewarding more players with small jackpots. Their progressive jackpots however can reach some lofty amounts, but these tend to be given away through their side games and not their bingo. There is also a loyalty scheme, but once again it’s not as good as you can get elsewhere.
Eyes Down Bingo really need to take a close look at everything they have to offer if they hope to compete against all of the other online bingo site out there. The site layout is confusing, the lack of rooms and players is worrying and they really need a good promotion or two to get themselves noticed. If however you love your slots and instant games you will love Eyes Down Bingo, as they have plenty to choose from with some impressive jackpots up for grabs.
Eyes Down Bingo Review – Bingo Games
Eyes Down Bingo is one of the few sites that runs on the Parlay software. It offers 75 ball, 80 ball and 90 ball bingo, but they are not all available 24/7. In terms of side games, there is slots, video poker, casino games and lottery which includes scratch cards and Keno. These can all be accessed from the lobby or from within the bingo rooms. The only problem is, when you play them in the bingo rooms, they open up in a space above the chat room, and this reduces it’s size.
The bingo rooms themselves certainly make a change from the norm, and you can activate and deactivate the chat room, mini games lobby and full games lobby using the three orange buttons at the top of the screen. Click on the spanner in the top right hand corner and you will find all of your game options including auto daub, best card sorting, card highlighting, sounds and graphics, dauber shape and dauber colour, so you can alter the game to suit your own needs.
Eyes Down Bingo is home to a number of different jackpot games. Their ‘Gorgeous £5,000 Hourly’ bingo games takes place every hour on the hour between 12pm and 5pm and then again at 12am in the Money Tree room. Cards for these games cost 25p, and the prize pot starts at a whopping £5,000. As more numbers are called though, this starts to slide until it reaches a guaranteed £75. These games also run between 6pm and 11pm, but during these hours the guaranteed prize is increased to £100.
Wednesday night is ‘Make it a Triple’ night at Eyes Down Bingo, and they bring you three different ways to win between 8pm and 10pm. The first hour is just a warm up though, then from 9pm you can take part in their ‘Triple Play’ games with three great prizes:
- Two part bingo game for up to £600 in prizes – £100 on part one and £500 on part two
- Win in fifty calls or less and instantly win a £1,000 jackpot
- Win in thirty calls or less and take home the £20,000 Triple Play jackpot
The Eyes Down Bingo Loyalty Program is called the Ultra Club, and it is based around seven different levels, with level one representing a player who has not yet funded their account and level seven being a loyal player who has deposited and played regularly over a long period of time. You will earn Loyalty Points every time you play a game, but the amount you need to wager per point varies from game to game:
- Wager £10 on bingo for one Loyalty Point
- Wager £45 on slots for one Loyalty Point
- Wager £30 on Keno for one Loyalty Point
- Wager £45 on Poker for one Loyalty Point
- Wager £30 on Pull Tabs games for one Loyalty Point
As you accumulate more points, you will work your way up the loyalty ladder and unlock extra rewards, with the main one being an improved deposit bonus that increases in stages from 50% up to 100%. You do have the option to trade in these points for Bonus Pounds too:
- 1,100 Loyalty Point can be exchanged for 25 Bonus Pounds
- 2,100 Loyalty Point can be exchanged for 50 Bonus Pounds
- 4,000 Loyalty Point can be exchanged for 100 Bonus Pounds
For full details of the loyalty scheme on offer simply visit the bingo promotions page and look at item 21 in the impressive list of promotions.
Click on the ‘Promotions’ tab at Eyes Down Bingo and you will find a number of different links including free bonuses, featured promotions, daily events, Ultra Club, bingo schedule and Refer a Friend. Click on ‘Daily Events’ and you will be able to see all of that weeks specials and jackpots games. Choose ‘Bingo Schedule’ though and you will be able to see an hour by hour breakdown of each day so you know exactly what is going on.
‘Featured Promotions’ is where you will find all of the specials they add to their line-up. The Gaming Network is really not the best though, so if you are looking for prize bingo you will probably be disappointed. With the exception of chat games and jackpot games there is not a lot going on, but if you enjoy the lure of big cash prizes, there is plenty for you to get your teeth into.
The whole layout of the promotions section is very confusing though, so you may want to spend some time exploring everything before you hit the lobby.
