In the last few years the gambling industry has seen a massive boom in popularity and growth, which shows no signs of slowing in 2015.
With brand new online bingo sites cropping up all the time, competition is becoming more and more fierce, which can only mean great things for players in the coming year. With lots up and coming this year, you will find that there’s plenty of new bingo sites launching in 2015.
What to Look Forward to
Although there’s no way to specifically say what these new sites will provide us with, there are some trends beginning to emerge which look set to be adopted and grown further by new bingo sites.
These great new bingo brands will encompass some existing trends and will take inspiration from some of the most popular brands currently on the market. Overall you can expect to see the same kind of things, such as offers, promotions and bingo games, but will ultimately vary what they provide under these categories.
However the exciting thing is the new directions the bingo market will head along in 2015. We’ll see a trend of new sites using mobile technology to their advantage for a start. Although almost every bingo brand upgraded to allow a highly optimised mobile site or dedicated app in 2014, new brands will have this as standard. They’ll also shift towards offering mobile-only incentives as this is fast becoming the most popular way to play. Expect better games on your mobile as well as exclusive deals and even innovative ways to pay via mobile.
Thanks to the latest advances in smart technology, we could even see the launch of bingo and other games on the likes of the latest Smartwatches and so on.
New bingo sites will also be able to build on the social media frameworks that other brands have forayed into over the last couple of years. Expect far more interactivity between social media and gaming sites, with loads of banter, promotions and even exclusive offers on Facebook and Twitter. For example, if you look at the Bingotastic facebook page, you will see they have plenty of new exclusive offers, bonuses and promotions, each coming out every few days. It’s well worth looking at!
A lot of existing sites have chosen to go with a tiered welcome offer which promises players multiple rewards for making various deposits on the site. This usually lasts for the first 3 or 4 deposits to the site, offering great value for money.
However the trend now seems to have shifted towards offering players free money to join a bingo site. Also known as a no deposit bonus, this is where new players are offered a sum of money just for signing up and creating an account with a site, with no need to use any of their own cash. This is obviously a great incentive as it gives you the chance to check out all that a site has to offer without making any commitment or being disappointed.
Over the last year, these bonuses have increased from offering £5 free to up to £20 free to sign up. As the year goes on, we can expect to see more new brands adopting this offer, and perhaps even increasing the freebie awarded, promising players £30 or maybe even more!
But it’s not just deposit bonuses, as bingo brands old and new have started to lean more towards providing alternative prizes to cash jackpots, like holidays, gadgets, vouchers or spa weekends in some cases. We might see the addition of a whole new prize system that we’ve never seen before in these new sites. One to look out for is free bingo sites which offer the chance to earn these real prizes the longer you play with them.
Another thing we can look forward to is a refresher in the games we can play. Expect new games which are well designed, cover a wide range of themes and provide players with tons of unique and exciting gameplay bonuses to win a few cash prizes.
Not only this, but expect exciting new takes on old favourites and hybrids of games such as the new Video Bingo genre which emerged onto the scene in late 2014.
This is just a small selection of the new things we can expect from bingo sites in 2015. Keep your eyes on this site for reviews of all the latest and greatest brands as soon as they launch.
