“Bingo Base” Bingo Guide Review

by Paul Marion on December 21, 2008

A few months ago, at bingo hq, we reviewed Bingo Port, one of the UK’s more popular UK Bingo comparison sites. Today, at BingoHQ we take a closer look at another portal that has made a good name for itself with players and operators.

About Bingobase

As an independent online bingo comparison site, Bingo Base, provides good information to players choosing which online bingo site to play.

bingobase

Although they lack a key differentiation as bingoport.com has with their monitoring, ranking system, bingobase makes up ground with a lot of content.

Things we like at BingoBase.com:

  1. Easy to use website – BingoBase.com by no means adheres to best practiced website usability, still, finding reviews about where to play is fairly easy.
  2. Updated daily bingo news section – We’ll be the first to admit it,  we like the bingo news section so much that we’re avid readers – almost on a daily bases. If you want to keep abreast to what’s happening in the uk online bingo scene, be sure to keep close tabs to bingobase’s “bingo news” page.
  3. Bingo Player Wizard – A neat little service, whereby, you can fill a short questionnaire and Bingo Base will help you discover a selection of UK bingo sites and offers that are tailor made just for you. Check out here >>

Things that rub us the wrong way:

  1. Biased Reviews – Like other uk online bingo comparison sites, the top reviews found on bingobase.com are not 100% genuine reviews. We think, bingobase.com could be more transparent to their readers and users by highlighting reviews that are sponsored such as the home page top 6 reviews.
  2. Lack of community – We like how bingobase.com has a bingo blog but at the same time, question why they’ve disabled the commenting feature. Here at bingo hq, we feel strongly that one of the best things about blogging is the interaction and conversation it creates between people who share similar interests.If bingo is claimed as a social game, it beats us why bingobase has chosen to disable their comment feature.

Overall

Overall bingobase.com is a good bingo comparison directory for the amount of content available but as one of the more visible bingo sites in the UK, they could show better leadership with transparency and being more bingo player focused than advertiser focused.

Unfortunately, blog comments are 99% of the time spam comments looking for an instant back link therefore I’m afraid it had to be disabled. Disappointing I know but required to stop wasting resource.

Indeed, sites dominating the home page are generally sites that have simply become the best in the market that everyone likes to play or new sites looking at entering the UK Market. The top 6 isn’t suppose to reflect our top 6 in the market, it’s simply the 6 sites being promoted by us at that time.

The sites are independently reviewed and hopefully the content is a honest and comprehensive picture of that particular site.

Cheers,

Lee

Hi Lee,

Thanks for clarification and your comment. At Bingo HQ we receive our share of spam comments too, fortunately with today’s spam protection tools, they’re easily managed.

"Bingo Base" Lee March 17, 2009 at 11:23 am

This is very true, the tools are becoming available to automate spam filtering, but they’re still not 100% accurate, therefore manual intervention is often required due to the number of comments we received.

Hopefully, we can re-introduce this as generally I’m all for it, however, time wasn’t on my side.

Good luck with your site.

Cheers,

Lee

Hi Lee!

First off, I just want to make it clear that this is not a spam 🙂 I just want to ask if it’s ok with for me to add a bingo review/article to your blog? Thanks (assuming that you’ll be reading this). I’ll be glad to contribute to your site.
