Our General First Impressions
This bingo site certainly succeeds in bringing a bit of the Brazilian carnival flavour to the world of online bingo. The moment you enter you can tell the design and the theme aimed at the Brazilian city is spot on. With a background of sprawling beaches and Christ the Redeem you’re certainly left with that carnival feeling. There is absolutely tonnes to see as well, with a menu bar jammed packed with different options taking you to different promos and offers aimed at both new and existing players. It’s bright, colourful and certainly very easy on the eye and also very tempting to jive right into a bingo room and that is exaclty what we planned to do for this rio bingo review.
How to register a new account and make a deposit
As part of thisreview we created a new player account so we could fully test all aspects of this bingo site. Rio bingo uses Dragonfish software so the registration process will be familiar with many online bingo players. It is a simple case of filling in a few brief personal details such as name and address and that is it. There is a section for debit and credit card details to be filled in, which if you want to claim the free bingo bonus you will need to complete. Once you’ve completed this step and filled in all the relevant details you are taken to a screen with a large parrot where you have the option to click either ‘play now’ or ‘deposit’. If you chose to make a deposit at this stage a new window will pop up. Here you will see a list of all the different depositing options that are available. You can use the card you signed up with or chose one of the other methods available. However, as you do get a free bingo bonus to begin with we would recommend using this in the first instance to save you gambling with your own money.
Assessment of the bingo lobby and different bingo rooms
Whether you have made a deposit or not you can still head over to the bingo lobby which has that samba party feel to it. In the bottom half of the screen is where you see the menu of all the different bingo rooms that are available. There are a number of unique rooms that will only be found here as we discovered while writing this Rio bingo review. There is the Samba Surprise, which is only available to players who have made a deposit. There is also the £10K Street Party which takes place every Friday and which is exactly what it says it is. There is a choice of 90 ball and 75 ball games all with Rio party themes and names such as ‘beach shack’ ‘surf school’ and ‘the grill house’. Overall there is a pretty good selection of different bingo rooms to chose from and play it.
Naturally we couldn’t complete a fullreview unless we tried and tested a number of the bingo rooms on offer. The bingo rooms won’t hold any surprises for bingo players who have played at a Dragonfish bingo sites before. While the software is the same the CHs and roomies are totally different to what you might find at the usual dragonfish network sites. But in terms of the way the bingo rooms works, it is dragonfish. The slight variation is the colour scheme which matches what Rio bingo has used throughout its site.
