Vernons Bingo has been through a lot of changes in it’s history, with the biggest one being a name change from Littlewoods Bingo in June 2012. A few months later in October, they ditched the G2 Gtech bingo software in favour of the more popular Virtue Fusion network. The look of the site did not change however as they retained the purple and green colour scheme, which is not the most attractive of colours, but at least it makes them stand out from the pinks and pastels we see all too often.
Registering is a straight forward procedure at Vernons Bingo, but you may need to come up with a new username and email address if you already have an account with any of the sites on the same network. You will be welcomed with a small bonus on your first deposit, but once you have made your second, you will be able to take advantage of the Newbie Free Bingo room which is open once a week. There are plenty of ways to fund your account, including all major credit and debit cards and a selection of the main secure online payment schemes.
The home page is bright and colourful and packed full of useful information on their latest games and promotions. Only the main banner at the top of the page is animated so it’s not too irritating. One slightly annoying aspect is that the purple images on both sides of the home page are giant links and it’s all too easy to accidentally click on them, and be taken away from the page you are reading. The rest of the site is accessible via the navigation bar on the left, and make sure you check out the getting started and community sections if you are new to the game.
The lobby uses the networks standard layout, but this is not bad thing as it is well laid out and functional. You will find tabs for 90 Ball, 75 Ball, Multiplayer Slots and Joker Jackpot. Click on any of these tabs are you will be given all the information you need to help choose a room including how long until the next one starts, the prize, the ticket price and the number of players taking part. If you click on the ‘Schedule’ button you will be able to pre-purchase tickets for all future games, so you don’t even need to be logged in to take part.
The rooms themselves are well designed and you can see that they have been tweaked over the years to make sure everything is where you would expect it to be. You can upload your own photo and edit your profile so potential friends can find out a bit more about you. You even have the option of adding roomies to your friends list, and once you have done this you can chat in private. If you want a bit more excitement, you access a range of instant games, and as these open above the chat panel, they don’t interfere with the bingo fun.
Vernons also operate an online casino, and you can log in using your existing bingo username and password. When you sign up, you are automatically allocated a virtual wallet, and this means if you have funds in your bingo account, you can use them to play at the casino too. The first time you make a deposit via the casino however, you will earn yourself another welcome bonus, and there are literally hundreds of extra games for you to enjoy.
Vernons Bingo has a lot of plus points, there are loads of games to choose from and plenty of big guaranteed jackpots to be won. They regularly added extra promotions on a month by month basis, and there is even a reward scheme to reward the most loyal players. Unfortunately though, they also suffer the fate of most networked sites, and that is that they offer no more then any of the other sites on the network, so there is nothing special to make them stand out from the crowd.
Vernons Bingo Review – Bingo Games
Game Options at Vernons Bingo
You will find a wealth of games in the Vernons Bingo lobby, with something to suit all tastes. In addition to 75 ball pattern bingo, 75 ball bingo and 90 ball bingo, you will find a massive range of slots, scratch cards and arcade games. The fun does not stop there though, because there is also a small selection of multiplayer slots that combine the excitement of instant games with the ability to compete against other players for the chance to win bigger prize pots.
There are loads of bingo rooms to choose from and they are all nicely designed with a large chat panel and plenty of room to view your purchased cards. Click on ‘Account’ at the top of the pages and choose options from the drop down menu and you will be able to personalise all aspects of the game. There are a number of different dab shapes, ten different colours and even four fun daubers; standard, magic wand, hammer and a lipstick.
You also have full control over all of the sound and graphics options of the game with a master controls plus caller, sound effects and background sounds. If you are on a slower internet connection, don’t worry because you can turn down the graphics quality and turn off the animations, which should help things run more smoothly. Finally you can also alter the font size, a great addition for anyone with poorer eyesight.
Once you have made your second deposit at Vernons Bingo, you will qualify for their Weekly Newbie Night for a whole month. This exclusive Penthouse Bingo Room is open every Tuesday night between 8pm and 10pm. During these two hours, you will be able to enjoy eighteen free games, with jackpots ranging between £10 and £50.
In the same room between 7pm and 8pm every Wednesday night, all players that have deposited and wagered at least £10 during the previous calendar week, will be able to take advantage of the Weekly Depositor Hour. This hour is made up of fifteen games with a guaranteed prize of between £10 and £20.
Vernons Bingo is packed full of Bingo Linx games, and each one comes complete with its own guaranteed jackpots. Every day they give away over £10,000 through four special games.
In addition to the one, two line and full house winners, all of these games also have prizes for those unfortunate players that are left with 1TG and 2G.
