Buzz Bingo Review
Buzz Bingo was already one of my favourite online bingo sites before they asked me to come and work for them in August 2021.
After going in to cover some maternity leave within the bingo team, I am pleased to report I was kept on full time and am now helping to shape their entire online bingo product!
Much of this review below was written before I joined Buzz, so there is no bias here and going forward I will continue to be open and honest with my reviews. Buzz have been supportive in allowing me to continue this site in my spare time while working for them, which is great.
Buzz Bingo has only been around since 2018, but in that time they've already picked up loads of awards including Best New Site (WhichBingo & BingoPort Awards 2019) and Best Bingo Site (WhichBingo Awards 2020). They're also the largest retail bingo operator in the UK, so no-one knows bingo like these guys.
Buzz Bingo sits on the Playtech (aka Virtuefusion) platform and so if you've played at any of the major Playtech sites it should all feel very familiar. As well as most of the best Playtech variants, Buzz also has a few exclusive bingo rooms such as Buzz Bingo Blast (36 ball variant) and The Voice UK Bingo (80 ball variant).
NEW Live Bingo
In September 2022 Buzz Bingo announced a new feature that took something that already existed (live video feed inside a bingo room) but made it so much better. Introducing, LIVE BINGO from Buzz...
What sets this new Live Bingo apart from everyone else is a combination of two things:
- New technology that means the live-stream is truly, properly live (no 12 second delays here).
- The fantastically talented presenters and creative minds that come up with fun and interesting new features (yes, I helped with this!)
Buzz Bingo are really confident that Live Bingo will be a success that they are going all out at launch with shows 7 days a week, every night in Buzz Club Room from 7pm - 10pm.
Bingo is the star of the show
The best thing about the new Live Bingo at Buzz is that all of the enhanced in-game features that they have come up with are all connected to the actual bingo game being played. So it isn't some gameshow you are watching where only the person who has phoned in gets to win something. Here, anyone could win depending on what happens in that game of bingo, right at that second.
Every game features the Bonus Board, which is like a community ticket that everyone can see on screen. Claim Full House on one of the numbers gets you an extra £5. Complete the line and it's another £10 added on. Two lines get you £25 and complete the Full House and that's a nice juicy £50 on top.
But that's just the basics. There are a huge variety of fun and interesting enhanced features that could be played on any night, including Odds & Evens, Higher or Lower, Duck Hunt, Magic Number, Lucky Numbers, 80's Night, Any 1's Game and much, much more.
Head on over to Buzz Bingo now and click on the Live Bingo section for all the details of these great games and to see what's coming up in tonight's show.
