Silo 18 is a company based in Norwich that develops internet bingo software platforms. The company has spent the past eighteen months developing a new bingo platform that’s going to run on the X-Bingo platform. XBingo is owned by Mandalay Gaming Holdings and based out of Gibraltor. Right now XBingo is only open to bingo players in the UK, but the company wants to move into new international markets as soon as possible.
The software is brand new (and actually similar to the big brother bingo site) , but it has already been beta tested by thousands of bingo players through Facebook. Social media has played a huge role in making sure that the software has been tested thoroughly before being released to the public. When a new bingo platform is released there is usually a period of time where bugs need to be worked out, but Silo 18 is confident that the majority of bugs have already been fixed during the Facebook beta testing process.
XBingo and Silo 18 decided to partner up because the owners know each other and they wanted to do well by offering the best casino bonuses possible (for bingo players). Silo 18 decided to build the new bingo platform for the X-Bingo platform because the owner of Mandalay wanted to differentiate XBingo from other bingo and girls poker sites. XBingo was also restricted to operating in the UK only, but that’s no longer going to be the case. Right now the company is trying to roll out the new XBingo software in Canada and there are plans to open in Australia and other European countries. Xbingo are in the process of building an application for mobile bingo sites which can be used across all platforms such as android and iphones interfaces.
The main focus of XBingo is to be ready to open to the US market - something which would be amazing for public relations departments of all online gaming companies if gaming in the US becomes regulated. The company is waiting for the gaming laws to change in the United States before they roll out the new software in the USA. Silo 18 did an excellent job building the software, as it looks incredible. There are also lots of unique social features included on the software such as being able to invite friends to the bingo game you’re playing and much more.
XBingo definitely has an excellent bingo platform now, but it’ll be interesting to see how they do in the countries they plan on opening up to in the future. There are lots of bingo sites available in every country already, so it’ll be interesting to see how XBingo plans on marketing their new platform to players. Right now players that are allowed to join XBingo will be able to claim a huge 300% sign-up bonus to try out the new bingo games.
