- Leap Frog
Leapfrog Gaming was established as a company back in 2002. However, until early 2012, the company had almost no presence in the online bingo market. The iGaming market really started to grow in 2011, as mobile devise with 3G internet began to be a mainstream consumer technology. Leapfrog Gaming was one of a handful of companies that rode this trend, to establish themselves in the online gaming sector. Today the company is owned by Daub Alderney Ltd.
Leapfrog Gaming is the chosen online bingo game provider for some of the top sites in Europe, including Bingo Café and King Jackpot.
Leapfrog Gaming does not offer a full online gaming platform to the companies that license its games on their sites. Instead, it simply allows site operators to quickly and easily add the range of Leapfrog Gaming online bingo games to an established site.
That being said, each game developed by the company, does have some standard functionality, such as easily accessed in-game help, and quick access to chat and lobby functions.
As mentioned above, Leapfrog Gaming is one of the smaller online bingo development companies out there. So the range of games on offer is quite narrow. However, the games it has developed are each of extremely high quality.
Bingo Bonanza is the company’s 75 ball bingo offering. A classic bingo game, but played through a fun, animated interface. Similarly, Mega Vault, a 90 ball bingo game, takes this popular bingo format and turns it in to an interactive online experience.
As Leapfrog Gaming does not provide a full online bingo platform, the actual features and quality of web based play will vary from site to site. It is solely dependent upon a) the overall feature set of the site and b) how well the online bingo game has been integrated. If we look at the games themselves, they both work perfectly across every web browser. They load quickly and are very responsive. But there is a caveat here. The gameplay experience you receive will always be driven by the performance of the site that is hosting a Leapfrog Gaming bingo game.
As we mentioned in the previous section, Leapfrog Gaming does not provide a full end-to-end platform for online gaming. Although the two excellent online bingo games the company has developed are mobile friendly. How well they work, and how good the overall gaming experience is, will be driven by the proprietary mobile app offered by the online gaming site itself.
Leapfrog Gaming is no Microgaming or Gamesys. It simply develops standalone online bingo games that can be incorporated in to any online gaming site. Despite this, the online bingo games that the company has created so far, are very good. We can only hope that more are released in the future.
