The Best Bingo Network (BBN) is a relatively small collaboration of around half a dozen sites, including Biscuit, Gone and Wow Bingo. Not to be confused with the similarly named Better Bingo network (BBn) – obviously a bit of competitive banter going on there! It all reminds me a bit of some of those old commercial battles of the past – like which was the best soap powder: Dazz or Omo? Nowadays, I suppose it’s more Apple v Microsoft, or Twitter v Facebook. Always preferred Myspace to be honest, but then I am a bit of a dinosaur…

Best Bingo sites are all operated and designed by Cozy Games. Every site on the network is licenced and registered via the Isle of Man, so they are all covered by the UK Gambling Commission. This means that they are all considered safe to play for UK based players. Being a small network, this is a relatively uncomplicated operation. The sites are all nicely designed with all the different titles well differentiated with widely varying themes and target audiences. All this network’s titles have an attractive but relatively simple background, with little in the way of flashing signs or scrolling banners to distract you. They’re all designed to let the bingo do the talking. This is all in keeping with their homely and friendly chat room atmosphere, perhaps living up to their designer’s name. All the commonly played formats of the game are available, with 90, 80, 75 and 30 ball “speed” bingo offered. It’s a pretty smooth operation: large enough to mean that there are enough players to provide a lively atmosphere even at off-peak times, with attractive prizes and jackpots. On the other hand, it’s small enough for you to feel at home with like-minded players. And there’s also the bonus that there may be the possibility of actually winning something worthwhile. Plenty of alternative options are provided for those who want a bit more than just the bingo. There’s a wide range of slots, plus a choice of scratch card and casino style games such as roulette and blackjack.

Funding your account is easy. All the typical credit and debit cards are accepted, including Visa, MasterCard, Maestro and Delta. A couple of e-payment methods are also provided. The minimum deposit amount is £5. The wagering requirements are a reasonably typical four to eight times your deposit + bonus, depending on the promotion you are receiving. This means that, for example, if you deposit £10 and receive a bonus of £40, you will need to spend something like £200 – £400 in real money before you can withdraw any winnings. It’s also worth noting that there is a minimum withdrawal amount of £50, which is quite high by industry standards

Overall, the Best Bingo Network provides good, smooth running and lively sites. It’s easy to register and get started, so why not give them a try. There’s plenty to keep you entertained while you keep the home fires burning.
