What a case of self-promotion. When you visit Nova Bingo, you’ll see that the site makes boasts like “dazzling the senses” and giving the “future of bingo.” Clearly, people at Nova Bingo feel they can make a significant influence on their audience, despite the fact that this is already a very crowded sector that definitely does not need any new entrants. Nonetheless, it has one, and therefore we determined that it was probably better to conduct a deeper examination.
Regrettably, first impressions are not favorable. If this is indeed ‘The Future of Bingo,’ then the future was clearly imagined — at least artistically – in the late 1990s or early 2000s. The website does not seem to be very inviting; the layout and design have a cheap feel to them—for example, the box with the quote we used at the start of this review has blocked out text, which hasn’t been a deliberate design decision in many years (and even when it was, it was an admission of uninspired designers that have never really learnt the basics of making things look decent).
This awful option is repeated across the webpage. Perhaps they haven’t blacked out content, but the ugly typeface – which resembles the default typography in programs like Word or Pages – isn’t very intelligent and shouts ‘Copied and Pasted’. Nonetheless, the landing page for the website as a whole has a wealth of information, much more than many rivals deemed fit to supply, and for that we may be grateful.
The branding and logo, which is larger than that of many other websites, take up the majority of the top of the page. Below that is an advertisement for the £25 sign-up bonus, which corresponds to a 250 percent bonus on a £10 deposit and is redeemable up to a maximum bonus of £100. Several additional boxes are staggered along the screen, one of which is the Bingo Schedule, which had just two games available for play on the day we tried the site — not exactly the largest variety we’ve seen.
You’ve Come for the Games.
If you click on the ‘Games’ option on the home screen’s top menu row, you’ll be sent to a section of the site devoted to the games available. The first of them is Bingo. There are three types of bingo available: 90-Ball, 75-Ball, and High 5, but there may be more. Indeed, there may be more, and Nova Bingo is undoubtedly missing out, or rather losing out, in comparison to its rivals.
Following that are the Coverall Jackpots, which are shown in a table with icons denoting the details of what you may win on various games, at various times, and on various days of the week. While a key is supplied for cross-referencing, we believe this is a bit unclear and should be better organized.
The third choice is Progressive Jackpots, and once again, the process is a touch more difficult than it should be. Progressive jackpots have long been popular since they function similarly to an accumulator, with the total jackpot value growing as the game is played. Due of the manner in which they are organized—running on different days and at various times of day—easy it’s to become lost in the confusing specifics.
Another choice is featured games, which seem to solely contain slot games. It’s unfortunate that they are not more prominently labeled, since some players may be under the mistaken notion that there are no slot games available, when in fact there are. The collection isn’t the best or most complete, but it’s plenty to divert your attention away from the bingo. Perhaps some casino games might have been featured as well, as we have seen on other websites, but having no casino games is definitely preferable than having just a few, which seems unprofessional and barren.
Required Assistance and (Partially) Delivered
The producers of Nova Bingo have taken precautions to guarantee that you do not approach the games blindly.
If you choose How To Play from the Games menu, you will be presented with a series of text and visual walkthroughs on how to master the many sorts of games and numerous methods to play the material on this website. These, however, might have been made a little more user-friendly by including some moving animation, which is not as difficult or costly as some may believe, and would have insured that the information is not nearly as difficult to penetrate as it looks in its present form.
