Bingo.com has had an interesting life! It’s gone through a number of different incarnations and tempted players with different bingo platforms including Playtech/Virtue Fusion. Today it’s owned by Unibet (who also own Maria Bingo) and resides on the Relax Gaming platform. It offers a mix of bingo, casino, slots and lottery games.
Bingo.com offers new players making their first deposit an extensive welcome package. A £10 deposit gets you a £20 bonus, 40 spins (10 per day for 4 days) and access to a free bingo room. There seems to be some confusion about how long you have access to the free room – on one hand it’s 7 days and on another it’s 14! Wagering terms apply and these are quite hefty at x40 on the deposit bonus. Oddly the wagering terms on wins from your spins are set at a more favourable x15.
Bingo.com has six bingo rooms offering a mix of 75 and 90 ball bingo. These include The Grand, The Mystery, Supersonic (for speed bingo), Glamour Hall, All Stars and Ruby Skies. Ticket prices start at 5p so there’s opportunities for penny players at Bingo.com! The rooms tend not to be overly busy but this can be a positive as there’s less competition for the jackpots that are on offer.
Slots and casino feature heavily on Bingo.com and there’s a wide selection to choose from. Favourites include Starburst, Rainbow Riches, Blood Suckers, Immortal Romance, Big Bad Wolf, Ruby Slippers, Guns N Roses and Rainbow Riches. Live Casino is also an option as is Lottery Betting – not something you tend to find at many bingo brands. Gala did use to offer it via their “Flutter” channel but they dropped it after just a few months.
Private All Stars Room
Promotions tend to be reasonable – a mix of bingo and slot related. For example, at time of review (Feb 2018) there’s a chance to win trip for 2 to Paris. Players need to wager on bingo to earn a scratchcard which offers the main prize, cash and bonuses. Annoyingly, the details of what the Paris prize package entails is omitted from the promo terms. Other promos include mini tournaments plus a Private All Stars Bingo Room – wager £15 in a single day to qualify for the following day.
The big positive for Bingo.com is that it offers something different from all the big name brands such as Gala, Mecca, Foxy, Wink and Jackpotjoy. The biggest drawback is the wagering terms on the initial deposit. Our advice would be to not accept it (or use it) and instead just enjoy the free bingo room for 7 or 14 days.
