Give Back Bingo
Give Back Bingo is a charity bingo site on the Daub Alderney platform (also used by Kitty Bingo and sister sites) which was launched in December 2016. Rather than being affiliated with or run on behalf of a specific charity, it uses the charity of the month format, with a minimum £500 donation specified in the terms and conditions. They say that players will be consulted about which charities should be supported and they also say that the donations will be made via Just Giving pages with the links posted on site.
Although this format of charity bingo site has been done several times before, previous iterations of the idea have not worked at all well. At best there have been issues with transparency over amounts and donations (broken links and missing Just Giving pages as well as lack of information) and at worst there has been a question mark over whether any donations have actually been made at all! Give Back Bingo, however, seem to be doing OK with it so far apart from a few teething problems getting the first month’s Just Giving page working and an issue where they have apparently counted one of the donations they made to Cancer Research twice.
We do think, however, that they should be a bit more imaginative about the charities they support and go for small charities with little or no fundraising budget of their own rather than big, high profile charities that are barely even going to notice a £500 donation.

The charity aspect of Give Back Bingo combined with the less well known Daub bingo software makes it a refreshing change from the majority of new bingo site launches.
