Weather seems to be a popular choice for bingo brands this month! Whilst Bingo Storm is hoping to whip up a storm on the Dragonfish platform, Balmy Bingo is hoping to warm player’s hearts with the Jumpman 15 Network. Adopting an attractive tropical beach look, Balmy is the perfect antidote to the typical British weather. However, is Balmy a good option for bingo players and does it offer anything different to the 100+ other Jumpman brands?
Balmy Bingo Welcome Offer
New players to Balmy Bingo are welcomed with a spin the wheel bonus. Register, login and deposit a minimum of £10 to spin the Mega Wheel and win up to 500 spins on selected slots. Typically these will be Starburst and Fluffy Favourites. Other prizes include Amazon vouchers - up to a value of £10. Note that a win is not guaranteed. Further spins of the Mega Wheel are available when you reload with £20 or more. Any wins from the spins are paid as a bonus and come with a x65 wagering term. There is no minimum withdrawal but you will be charged a £2.50 free.
Free Bingo Rooms
Inside the Balmy Bingo lobby you'll find bingo rooms powered by Pragmatic Play and Bingo Millions. These replace the old Jumpman rooms such as Lucky Stars and Payday Jackpot. The new rooms mean you can play 75, 80 and 90 ball bingo at Balmy Bingo. Ticket prices vary but expect to pay 5p to 10p on most games. The rooms are still not that active and some games don't play due to lack of players. The Bingo Millions games are a lotto meets bingo game and have a progressive jackpot of over £1.5million.
Promotions at Balmy Bingo include 31 Days of Cashback for new players, a VIP scheme and a Happy Hour every Wednesday. Play between 3pm and 7pm for the chance to win more spins. Other promos are quite limited but in Winner Winner Chicken Dinner (yes really), the player with the biggest single spin win every month gets a £50 Just Eat Voucher. If you like VIP programmes then you can win virtual trophies by playing regularly at the site. These trophies offer rewards including extra spins of the Mega Reel.
Balmy Bingo Rewards
Balmy Bingo is very mobile and tablet friendly. However no app for Android or Apple devices is required to play Balmy Bingo on the move. You can login and play as normal with mobile, tablet and desktop. This gives you access to all the bingo rooms and the majority of slots and live casing games that are available to play.
Slots tend to dominate the Jumpman sites and Balmy Bingo is no different. There are over 300 different titles to play alongside a number of progressive jackpots and live casino games. Slots feature heavily at Fluffy Favourites, Starburst, Chilli Heat, Rainbow Riches Pick N Mix, Pixie Wings, Dragon Kingdom and Centurion. A series of progressive jackpot slots, mainly from Eyecon Games, are also available.
Penny’s Thoughts On Balmy Bingo
Balmy Bingo is a good looking site but it’s hard to warm to another Jumpman Gaming brand. The problem doesn’t lie with Balmy but the actual bingo product. The biggest jackpot game, the £1000 Pay Day game and the best reason to play Jumpman Bingo, has only attracted 260 players (April 2019). It’s rare to find players in the Lucky Stars bingo room – which is a shame as ticket prices are 1p to 5p. The Fair & Square Room is aslo attractive to penny players but this struggles for players – across over 100 sites.
Therefore Balmy Bingo is more of a slots site. In that respect it’s worth a effort. If Jumpman want more bingo players though then they’re really going to have to invest in more games and better prizes.
