Alternatives To Blush Bingo
Blush Bingo Review
No sooner do we publish an article lamenting the lack of new bingo sites in 2022 than we get a new bingo site to tell you about. Blush Bingo is the aptly named brand from Tau Gaming which launched just in time for Valentine's Day. Tau are most well known for their many Dragonfish Real Money Network sites but with Blush they've gone in a new direction. For this site they've teamed up with Grace Media to launch on the Pragmatic Play bingo platform. That's the same platform being utilised by the likes of Heart, Betvictor and the recently relaunched BOGOF - and the same bingo product used by Jumpman, Butlers Bingo and Crown. We're told to "expect fresh bonuses, exciting new bingo rooms and more than 700 of the most popular slots" so let's see what Blush offers.
Introducing Blush Bingo
Grace Media took over the old Nektan platform and their first site launch was the flop that is Flip Flop Bingo. Why is this important? Well it's because Blush is pretty much an identikit site to Flip Flop and previous Nektan incarnations. The colour scheme is different with Blush utilising shades of pink and we do like the fact that bingo takes centre stage. The site's main features are highlighted in a slideshow that dominates the top of the site and these are bookmarked by two ladies with shocked looks on their faces. We guess they're meant to be blushing but it's probably quite difficult to convey that in a photo. As for the brand name - well we don't know whether a word that means "to show shyness, embarrassment" works, but then we are in a world of Wink, Tasty, Posh and the aforementioned Flip Flop! The site is designed to work on mobile, tablet and desktop. No app is needed.
Blush Bingo Welcome Bonus
The Blush Bingo welcome offer for new players is similar to other slots and bingo brands that were formerly Nektan. This means a mixed package of a bingo bonus, free bingo and slot spins. Register, login, deposit and wager at least £10 to qualify to receive a £30 bingo bonus, 100 Fluffy Favourites bonus spins and 7 days free bingo. This is quite a generous offer but do be aware that wagering terms apply. These include a x5 term for bingo bonuses and x40 for games bonuses. The Newbie Room sounds like a good thing but it is only open for one hour a day (2p to 3pm) which isn't great if you're an early bird or night owl. The free 90 ball games also only pay out 75p for 1L, 75p for 2L and £1.50 for the full house so it's not exactly a big money attraction. it's not clear whether these prizes are paid in cash or bonuses either.
Blush Bingo Rooms
By using the Pragmatic Play platform Blush Bingo offers players access to networked 75 ball, 80 ball and 90 ball rooms. These include Boombox (80), Country Roads (75) and Jackpot Room (90). These are joined by Bingo Blast, the speedy version of 90 ball bingo which gets straight to the full house action, Zoom Room - a 30 ball game - and a selection of special jackpot rooms. Ticket prices are typically 5p/10p a game although you can find some penny bingo games whilst the specials tend to be more expensive. As far as we can see there are no exclusive rooms nor do Blush have Reel Rooms, a bingo room where you can win slot spins. One thing we do like at Blush is the option to list bingo rooms by start time, number of players, jackpot etc. It's not really needed for a handful of rooms but it's a useful feature all the same.
Blush Bingo Slots
As you'd expect slots do form part of the site's makeup. In fact we're told that there are more than 700 of the most popular slots available to play. You can find slots by New, Popular and Megaways as well as by operator. Popular providers include Eyecon, Blueprint, NYX and Netent. Interestingly you'll not find Slingo on the platform which is a big surprise especially as Slingo is available at Heart. Slots at Blush include Viking Lightning Spins, Joker Bombs, Wild West Zone, Rockin Reels, Wish Upon A Cashpot, Elemental Gems Megaways and Bushtucker Prizes. There are no casino games like roulette and blackjack and you'll also not be able to enjoy live game shows like Deal Or No Deal, Monopoly or Dreamcatcher.
Blush Bingo Promotions
The promotions page of Blush features the welcome offer, jackpot bingo games that are networked and a bundle of slots/spins related promos. These promos include a Game Of The Week which requires you to make a deposit to receive the bonus - wagering terms apply. It'd be great to say that these are exclusive promos to Blush but unfortunately they aren't. In fact if you drop in on the the recently relaunched BOGOF Bingo for example you'll find exactly the same offers and promos. This isn't a bad thing but it's evidence - at least to us - that most promotions will be aimed at slots player and that bingo players shouldn't expect to see anything exclusive here any time soon.
The problem with new bingo brands launching with Pragmatic Play is that our instant reaction is "how do they compare with Heart"? Heart has exclusive games, exclusive promotions, Olly Murs and more games. They're also a no wagering brand which puts everyone else at a real disadvantage. If you're a bingo player why choose Blush over Heart when you can get access to more games, more offers and not be saddled with any wagering terms? Blush sadly doesn't give players anything new or exciting despite their proclaimations otherwise. If you like bonuses and don't mind wagering terms then the welcome package perhaps is the highlight. On a positive note it is good to see new brands finally materialising in 2022 but we hope that Pragmatic Play and Grace Media aims are higher than just replicating the "same old same old". Bingo players deserve a lot more.
