Review of Loquax Bingo
You’d have to be quacking, or at the very least bingo-ing insane, if you didn’t share our first thoughts on the Loquax online bingo website. Once the home page has loaded, it is immediately apparent that it is quite overwhelming. The sheer volume of information contained in the initial glimpse of this website is, frankly, a little overwhelming to deal with, coming at you with an abundance of box outs, welcome bonus ads, and other similar snippets, none of which are terrible decisions to include, but which collectively create a feeling of mild – if not outright – confusion in the user’s brain.
In addition, the name itself is a little strange. In reality, the name Loquax means nothing, and by substituting the head of a little, admittedly adorable, duckling for the letter O, you might be excused for reading it as Laquax. Despite this, the name has become popular. Not that it would actually provide any further insight into the reasoning behind the title’s selection. But it does reinforce one point: this is not a bingo site that is preoccupied with things being too serious, and instead emphasizes the importance of having a good time.
There is a standard layout that should be followed.
In terms of design, the website follows a very normal style, despite the fact that it is quite busy. The company logo and a backdrop picture of a badly created cartoon landscape may be seen at the very top of the page, on the right. There are several click through options in a row of menu links just below that, including: Register, Promotions, Games, Winners, Affiliates, Our Blog (which, thanks to the use of a particular font, actually looks like it says Our Bloc – which would indicate a completely different area of the site altogether), and, last but certainly not least, Contact Us.
The next level of the website contains one box saying that if you sign up for an account, you will ‘Get the greatest Welcome bonus’ – £25 in return for a £10 deposit – and that you will ‘Get the best Welcome bonus’ if you sign up for an account. Alongside this, there’s a little table of ‘Winners,’ which lists the user names of those who have recently won, but provides no information on when they won or, more significantly, how much money they were able to take home with their prize money. In addition, a third box has been added to this row, which advertises a jackpot sum, albeit there is no more explanation as to what the money is for.
There is a Latest Games box at the bottom of the page, which when we checked the site only showed two games in play at the time of our visit, one of which opened at 11.18am and the other at 20.30pm, indicating not a lot of gaming activity is taking place behind the scenes. There is a Top Games box next to this that offers a restricted selection of games to choose from. Only one game is listed, which doesn’t exactly give you confidence that there will be enough to keep you engaged after you join up.
Let us take a closer look at this.
When you choose the Games option from the menu row, things get a little more straightforward to comprehend. The first games that you will see are, unsurprisingly, bingo games, which are available in three different variations: 90-Ball, 75-Ball, and High 5. Obviously, we’ve seen all of them before, but there are many more possibilities available on other websites that we’ve seen previously as well, and we’ve seen them all before.
I find it odd that someone would create a bingo website and just concentrate on three varieties of bingo, even the most popular ones, and you can’t help but think that they are missing out on a few important details. Alternatively, three. When it comes to the websites that provide this sort of digital gaming, online bingo is a very competitive market, and as a result, only the strongest or most abundant will emerge as true success stories. Loquax, on the other hand, does not feel like one of them. Not at all.
There are also coverall and progressive jackpots available.
Coverall Jackpots are the next option available in the Games section. An informational table is shown, which lists the jackpots available on each day of the week and at what time of day they may be won. To be quite honest, there is a lot of information, but the usage of symbols might be confusing to those who are not familiar with them. The developers should strive to make this as fast and simple to comprehend as possible, which does not necessarily include using cross-referencing. Yes, there is a key to what they signify at the bottom of the page.
There are also a number of Progressive Jackpots available for you to participate in and win, albeit these are only accessible at certain times of the day, and these periods change according on which day of the week it is. Our belief is that things should be presented in a more simple manner since, at the moment, it is much easier to forget or get confused about what is accessible and when than it is to recall what is available and when.
