When we first heard then name Barbados Bingo back in October 2017 [read more here] we weren’t overly impressed with the name, or the fact that it was set to launch on the 15 Network.
We checked back on the site a few days ago and can tell you that Barbados Bingo is now open for business.
Welcome Offer From Barbados Bingo
We weren’t at all surprised to find that this new bingo site offered the bog standard 15 Network welcome package to new players.
When you make your first deposit of £10 or more with the site, you will receive a spin of the Mega Wheel that could earn you free spins on a variety of one of two slots (Fluffy Favourites or Irish Luck) or an Amazon voucher.
You will also receive a Mega Wheel spin on every deposit that you make with the site of £20 or more.
Wagering Requirements Shock From Barbados Bingo
As has become standard when covering news of the launch of a new bingo site, we check the terms and conditions of the welcome bonus. We were shocked to find that Barbados Bingo have opted to increase the wagering requirements on their welcome bonus by an extra third!
The standard wagering requirements for winnings generated by any slot spins won on the Mega Wheel on the 15 Network is 40x the bonus (and we double checked this on the day of the Barbados Bingo launch) but at this new bingo site, wagering requirements are 65x the winnings!
That’s pretty hefty and considering only £250 of any winnings can be converted anyway, a bit of a liberty to be honest.
We won’t be signing up to play at this site considering there are so many others on the 15 Network offering the same gaming experience, the same promotions and lower wagering requirements.
UPDATE! We checked with the site about the wagering requirements and why they were so high and it would appear that this is going to become standard to the network as the sites all upgrade to the new software. Read more about that in tomorrow’s article!
