Maria Bingo is one of a number of sites that realised online bingo’s future potential. It has therefore gambled heavily on marketing its operations and we imagine that nobody missed their commercials during the spring of 2007. Maria Bingo is owned by Parabol LTD which is licensed in England. Maria Bingo has offered bingo games since 2006. Recently, Maria Bingo was bought by Unibet, who with this purchase has made a serious foray into the world of bingo.
There is no need to install a client to play bingo at the Maria Bingo site, as it works directly in your web browser. Therefore, it is simple to get going if you are new to the scene. When you register with the site, you get a 100% bonus. That’s to say, if you set up your account with 100 kronor, you get an extra 100 kronor free. You are allowed to transfer between 70-1,500 kronor.
Why choose Maria Bingo?
If you are after a bingo site that has really pulled out the stops to create a pleasant environment, then Maria Bingo is a good place to spend your bingo time. In addition, Maria Bingo offers large jackpots which naturally attract large numbers of bingo players. There is no doubt that Maria Bingo has set its sight really high. Unfortunately, since its launch, the site has had its fair share of technical problems, but even so, Maria Bingo has become a popular choice with Swedish bingo players. The fact that Unibet has bought Maria Bingo will probably result in the problems the site struggled with being solved. The buyout also signifies increased betting in the remainder of Europe.
Another reason for choosing Maria Bingo is that the site contains a lot of information on how to get going with your bingo playing. It is quick to register and transfer money to your account and, once you’ve chosen a card it doesn’t take long until you feel like you’re “in”.
What is good?
A pleasant, pretty and attractive layout that draws you into playing on the site. Another positive point is that there are short introductions to the games on offer, and the Maria's World functionality, where you can see where players are located on a map. The overview of forthcoming games is also a good help for those looking for the biggest prizes and jackpots.
What could be better?
Maria Bingo has many advantages but, at the same time, is a little “heavy” and “busy”, especially when you find yourself immersed in a game. The usability is not really the best, meaning it brings down the score. It feels a little like the layout came first and usability was made to fit around it.
