Bingo.com has had an interesting life! It’s been active for numerous years, has gone through a number of different incarnations and tempted players with different bingo platforms including Playtech/Virtue Fusion. Today it’s owned by Unibet and is one of a handful of brands that utilise the Relax Gaming platform. Vistors to Bingo.com can now enjoy a mix of bingo, casino and slots including the recently launched – and very unique – Hexabingo.
Bingo.com Welcome Bonus
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. Also the way the offer is worded it suggests you need to register for access or deposit for access. Either way, wagering terms apply and these are quite hefty at x40 on the deposit bingo bonus. Oddly the wagering terms on wins from your spins are set at a more favourable x15.
Bingo.com has six main 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. These rooms have recently been joined by the new Hexabingo game. This is a three player game which is a lot of fun and innovative twist. It can be expensive to play!
Slots and casino feature heavily on Bingo.com and there’s a wide selection of games for players to choose from. Favourites include Starburst, Rainbow Riches, Blood Suckers, Immortal Romance, Big Bad Wolf, Ruby Slippers, Guns N Roses and Rainbow Riches. Joining the multitude of slots are big progressive jackpot titles such as Mega Moolah plus the increasingly popular Megaways slots. Live Casino is also an option and inside the live lobby you can take a spin on Money Wheel, Monopoly Live and Deal Or No Deal Live.
Player promotions at Bingo.com tend to be reasonable – a mix of bingo and slot related. For example, at time of review (August 2020) many of the offers are to highlight the launch of Hexabingo. Bingo.com have also introducted tournaments “where you have the opportunity to snap up huge bingo prizes”! These sound great on paper but are in fact mini game related. In other words you need to play the slots that are featured to the side of the bingo rooms. We’d prefer to see something more bingo related.
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. Whilst many brands are slowly becoming the same with similar platforms, Bingo.com – and Unibet Bingo – stand apart with the Relax Gaming platform. Up until recently the bingo on offer probably wasn’t that great but the addition of Hexabingo is possible game changer. A few more unique games would be perfect!
The biggest drawback for players opting to try Bingo.com is the wagering terms on the initial deposit. At x40 this is way over the odds when compared to many other sites, especially now many are no wagering or very low in wager terms. Our advice would be to not accept it (or use it) and instead just enjoy the free bingo room for the 7 or 14 days.
