bgo was launched as an online gambling portal in 2012, and has steadily built a strong following since then, serving up a strong range of casino, live casino, slots, jackpots and bingo games.
Its glossy presentation featuring model and socialite Paris Hilton, as well as an in-depth selection of both casino and bingo-specific promotions, further help to make it an intriguing
option for those seeking a glamorous and fun-filled online gambling destination.
Whatever you could want from a complete online gambling portal, bgo seemingly has it. Slots, roulette, blackjack and jackpots are all available, encompassing such options as:
Premium French Roulette
Wonder Woman: Bullets & Bracelets
Man of Steel
As the above selection shows, some of the slots games are based on immediately recognisable brands, with other examples of these including the Motorhead Video Slot and Batman & Catwoman Cash, whereas others are generic creations, such as Neon Life and Cleopatra Plus.
You can select from more than 600 slots alone, alongside over 100 other ‘standard’ casino games and a selection of live casino games across the categories of blackjack, roulette, hi-lo and hold’em.
Unlike the situation on some other sites, however, the vast majority of these games – including more than 500 slots, 84 casino games and 10 live games – can be enjoyed in gorgeously optimised mobile form as well. You can access them by downloading the dedicated bgo mobile app or simply visiting this version of the site directly through your smartphone’s web browser.
bgo has a nicely comprehensive bingo section, at least by the standards of most of the sites that concern themselves mainly with casino games. 90 ball, 75 ball, 'pick n' mix' and VIP games are all available, with the below being some of our favourite rooms:
Deal or No Deal 75
Cheap as Chips
One of the factors that makes bgo a leader in the online casino space is the broad range of software providers that it draws its games from, including such respected names as IGT, NetEnt, Playtech, Quickspin and Bally Technologies.
Such variety helps to ensure a similar variety as far as the look and feel of the games is concerned, although characteristics that are consistent across all of them include pleasing graphics and an intuitive game play experience.
As for the main bgo website, we can’t deny that its sheer graphical flair is one of our favourite aspects of the site. Its combination of blues, purples and blacks oozes sophistication, while the various navigation options are also laid out in a logical and easy-to-use way.
You might notice that one of the main menu options on the site is something called ‘The Vault’. This is where you will find all of the Boost rewards that you earn as you play through bgo’s games, and which will help to make your experience on the site an even more distinctive and satisfying one.
There are four types of Boosts available to unlock – Classic Boosts, Mega Boosts, Golden Chip Boosts and Mystery Boosts. The differences between these are explained in the site’s Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section. The exact rewards on offer include free spins, which don’t come with any maximum win or wagering requirements at bgo.
The bgo site’s loyalty scheme is called bVIP, which is based around players earning points called Diamonds that they can then redeem for rewards in the bVIP Loyalty Store.
It is in the store where the likes of free spins, real money and tournaments can all be purchased to help you to get more out of your long-term bgo experience. You’ll earn one Diamond for every £10 you bet on one of the site’s slot games, while 0.1 Diamonds will appear in your balance for every £10 you wager on a table game, such as roulette or blackjack.

The obvious first place to look if you require assistance as a user of bgo is the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page, which addresses common queries about such aspects of the site as signing up, depositing, withdrawing, forgotten passwords and the various rewards on offer.
Naturally, it's possible that whatever question you have won't be answered on the site already, which is why it's handy that there are so many ways of getting in touch with the support team directly. There is a phone number that you can call seven days a week, for example, while an email contact form and 'live chat' feature are also both available.
Unfortunately, however, there isn't a way to toggle the site information or support provided to a language other than English.
There are various territories from which bgo does not currently accept new members. A selection of them is below, with the full list being available in the site's terms and conditions.
The United States
The company that operates the bgo website - BGO Entertainment - is licensed and regulated by the following two highly trusted bodies:
Alderney Gambling Control Commission
The British Gambling Commission
Not only is bgo a very good-looking place to play casino games, but it’s also got the brain and brawn to match the beauty. Its loyalty scheme and Vault feature are among the most interesting perks that we’ve seen being offered on sites like this, while the sheer quantity of games from many different acclaimed software providers is another massive plus.
