Game Village, a relatively new operator to the industry, is currently offering players an impressive £30 of free credit without deposit to new customers. While this promotion is run with the intention of allowing players to “try before they buy” it is possible to extract what is essentially free money from the company. The terms and conditions of the offer dictate a 4x wagering requirement, so you will need to play £120 worth of bingo to withdraw any potential winnings but don’t be put off. £120 may seem like an awful lot but I assure you, it flies by without you even realising. To net yourself a tidy little profit on the back of this promotion you will need to:
1. Register with Game Village by clicking here. It only takes a few minutes and you’ll be in a room dabbing away!
2. Make a £10 deposit. This is purely for identification and anti-money laundering purposes, you should not need to wager it.
3. Play as much bingo as your little fingers can handle until you reach that magical 4x wagering requirement.
4. Once you are happy with your pile of cash, head for the withdrawal page and get that money deposited in your bank account.
It’s not a particularly strict set of conditions but they do need to be adhered to nonetheless. If you are one of the few people who prefer to use Neteller as their e-wallet then you will need to make a deposit before the free bonus is added to your account.
Game Village was formed in 2007 in Malta. Unlike a lot of other online bingo operators they do not run an extensive list of sites but instead prefer to focus their energies on one, making it as unique and enjoyable as possible. Being based in Malta, it should come as no surprise that they are licensed and regulated by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority, which oversees all gambling that is conducted either on or financially passes through Maltese territory.
Website and Software
Game Village have really hit the nail on the head with their website and software. When they launched they specifically wanted to create a unique and engaging experience for their users, so rather than buy a license for a software package that often comes with a free generic looking website like so many other companies they jumped into the deep end and developed their own. Oh boy did they do a good job.
The website is colourful, bright and inviting, with a very prominent cartoon-ish feeling. While a lot of bingo sites try to make themselves appear as professional and serious as possible to give a false sense of authority, Game Village decided to just focus on the entertainment element of their business. Kudos to them. They have highlighted the reason we visit them and tailored the site to our desires.
Their games are powered entirely by their own software package, which delivers the goods with a familiar layout while remaining unique enough to not becoming tiresome after an hour or so of play. That’s a difficult balance to strike. While I don’t think this is the best software package I have come across, it is both refreshing and highly entertaining. It’s worth signing up just for the gaming experience, the bonus just sweetens the deal.
Community and Customer Service
I found the community to be extremely inviting, which is rare when you take into account the fact that it is almost half a million strong. Usually when playing on a site with such a large player base you find yourself lost in the crowd and feeling like little more than a number. However, Game Village appear to have some exceptional chat moderators, who are quick to manually welcome most players in the room and help you engage with other players by inviting you into the conversation. It’s simple things such as these that make or break an operator, in my opinion at least.
Customer service was easy to deal with and readily available when we contacted them via live chat. The representative was helpful and knowledgable but most importantly had the tools at had to address our problem rather than just “pass it onto management”. Their support team isn’t available 24 hours a day, closing between the hours of 2am and 6am but realistically the chances of you needing them at such a time is unlikely.
I’ve been crying out for an operator like this for quite some time. They just seem to tick all the boxes for me. The website is clean, colourful, functional and most importantly, not blooming pink! The software being entirely unique is what really captured my attention though. It’s always nice to sit down and play a game of bingo without having to listen to the same old repetitive sound effects and so on. Overall, I don’t think you’ll find a better operator out there for the long term but the bonus is good enough to swing by and take advantage of on its own.
