Fun Bingo Network (FBN) is a smaller group of titles managed and powered by Cozy Games. It currently has around half a dozen sites, including Budget, Dandy and United Colours of Bingo. All the FBN members are licenced and registered via the Isle of Man. This territory is covered by the UK Gambling Commission, so all are considered safe to play in the United Kingdom.
Cozy Games’ software designers always provide well organised and smooth running sites. It’s always easy to find your way around, with very few glitches along the way. All FBN members’ sites feature simple but effective designs, which will suit the kind of player who just wants to get on with the game, with as few glitzy distractions as possible. Indeed, this uncluttered and functional design may be a little too flat and one dimensional for adrenaline junkies, but its relaxed and uncluttered feel is a real attraction for those of us looking for a less frantic experience. Once you get to my age, a pair of comfy slippers and a mug of Horlicks are far preferable to a noisy, strobe filled nightclub with a double vodka and Red Bull! So you won’t find any annoying scrolling banners or neon flashing images on the Fun Bingo Network. I swear some of the frenetic designs of their more “contemporary” rivals’ sites should be forced to give out those warnings like they do on TV… “Players should be aware that this site contains flickering graphics and flash photography effects which may be disturbing to people of a sensitive disposition.”
Fun Bingo Network members provide a homely, friendly and fun experience – ideal for those of us who are a bit more laid back and prefer an easier pace in life. So although you are unlikely to find extravagant claims of million dollar jackpots on FBN sites, what you will find is well run, friendly chat rooms with worthwhile prizes and a feeling that you are members of small exclusive members’ club, rather than hanging out with the international high rollers. And another point to remember is – without all those unattainable lucrative mega jackpots attracting the big gamblers, YOU have a better chance of winning! Splendid!
The bingo formats provided are usually 90, 80 and 75 Ball, with absolutely no 30 ball “speed” bingo at all. See what I mean? No low attention span thrill seekers required on these sites – just good old fashioned traditional bingo. Just like things used to be…
Banking options are still pretty much what you’d expect from a modern day online bingo operation though. You can use your standard credit and debit cards, and they even provide some of those new-fangled e-payment methods for the more modern types. Wagering requirements are also around the industry standard. You will need to spend around four to eight times your deposit + bonus in real funds before making a withdrawal. This means that if, for example, you deposit £10, and receive a bonus of £20, you will need to spend £120 – £240 of your own money before you make your first withdrawal. These figures apply to bingo – you will need to spend more if you are playing other games, such as slots or scratch cards.
