A quick tour of the bgo casino site2017-07-06 09:44:09
It’s certainly not what you typically expect from an online casino, but as he stands there with a blinging gold chain and wads of cash, it’s clear that this site doesn’t take itself too seriously. That’s nice to see since some larger sites try too hard to capture the sophistication of land-based casinos. Better to be a little tongue-in-cheek in my opinion.
A Variety of Games
This is a site with many games on offer, so I wasn’t quite sure where to go. This site contains a bit of everything, including bingo, but the different site areas are helpfully colour coded. Sticking with the purple ‘casino’ section, for now, I clicked on ‘join now’ to get started.
Registering and Top Menu
I found it simple and fast enough to register here. The site asks for a username and email, a few other details and then you’re sorted. Naturally, you’re then instructed to make your first deposit, but you can ignore this for the moment to take a look around. The site has a smooth way of displaying information, using expanding panels.
There’s a top navigation area on bgo, with a balance counter and account access. I first checked my on-site mail, which was letting me know about a recent promotion they are running. I jumped into my account area and found I was as at the lobby level of player status, which loads a little animation, showing you entering a hotel lobby. I enjoy these little touches around the site, they suggest that thought goes into the design.
The next stop is to have a look at the bonus situation. I couldn’t see the promos page at first, but there’s an icon for it at the top right of the website. This gives you a list of offers and I was pleased to note that all have original art and photography, which puts this site a step above those which just use a template.
The welcome package here is pretty impressive at £1,500, though it’s split over several deposits but that works for me as well. My first deposit was matched by 200%, with a cap of £200. The site gave me 180 free spins too, but these are doled out over 9 days, so I’ll need to head back to use them. Your second, third and fourth deposits can be matched by 100%, up to £500, £500 and £400. These come with a 35x wagering requirement.
I was pretty impressed by the general site offers, too, which shows creativity and update regularly. At the time of writing, I was able to join the Boss’ Spring Giveaway, where you simply wager to earn a prize draw ticket, which can net you a choice of different gadgets. There are also regular free spin offers on weekends.
