Foxy Bingo Review
Foxy Bingo is one of the longest lived and best known bingo sites out there, having been online since 2005. It runs on the familiar Dragonfish platform and has its own bingo rooms and promotions, but sadly these are not what they were in the cheeky fox’s heyday.
In the past, Foxy’s promotions have included huge Maximum Bingo games where even the losing tickets got a share of the pot, and several times a year there would be a free to play daily mini game where players could win bingo bonus – but these days the promotions seem largely geared towards getting players to spend (lots of) money on slots and other casino games. They have also stopped giving reload bonuses; although they do issue codes via social media and email, most of the time what is on offer is casino bonus (with a much bigger wagering requirement than you’d find at a Virtue Fusion bingo site, for instance). Bingo ticket prices are also relatively expensive (most are 10p or more).
The effect of all this has been to alienate many long standing players and fill Foxy’s social media pages with complaints.
Foxy also had a redesign back in 2015 giving it a fancy looking front end with the lobby integrated into the home page, and while this looks very nice since then there have reportedly been a number of problems including a rather embarrassing incident where the bingo room that had been set up for a big jackpot game disappeared, deleting all the pre-buys, and the players had to buy their tickets all over again.
Although a great many – probably the majority – of the bingo players who are around today will have tried Foxy at some stage during its 12 year history, the increasing focus on casino play makes this once popular site a far less attractive proposition these days.
To the further chagrin of long time Foxy players, in 2017 the operator decided to mess with the iconic cheeky fox himself, giving him a makeover and a sex change. If only they had spent the money (reportedly the campaign cost £10 million) on player promotions instead!
