BingoCams launched in The UK in 2011 following a successful start in life in The Netherlands. The site is different in that it encourages players to use their webcams whilst playing – it’s important to note though that it’s not a prerequisite to play and you’re able to take part with or without a cam. It’s your choice! Webcam issues aside BingoCams is one of the few remaining brands that stands on an independent propriatory platform. It did used to partner with Bright Bingo but they switched to Dragonfish and then closed down. Cams however continues to thrive with it’s mix of bingo rooms, player promotions and slots.
BingoCams Welcome Offer
To encourage you to join them BingoCams offers a 300% welcome bonus – up to £150 – note that this does vary so look out for bonus codes, especially during big promotions. First depositors can also get 25 spins on the Starbyrst slot as part of the welcome offer. Register, login and depsoit a minimum of £10 to claim the bonus. Wagering terms of x10 apply to the bingo bonus, but wins from the spins are paid as cash that can be be withdrawn. BingoCams also likes to reward loyalty and there’s extra bingo bonuses on offer by being a regular player.
Bingo rooms at BingoCams are limited to just 75 ball and 90 ball games. The 75 ball rooms do include pattern bingo. Ticket prices vary but you can typically play from 5p. The good news is that there is free bingo to enjoy at the site. You usually have to be a depositor to qualify for free games and some are limited depending on your rewards status (e.g. Bronze, Silver, Gold). At 6.30pm every Sunday there’s a free for all game for depositors who have funded their accounts in the past 14 days. Big Bang and BingBling Progressive Jackpots add to the site’s bingo offering.,
Slots do form a very large part of the make-up of BingoCams. In fact it boasts over 500 games from multiple providers such as Slingo, NetEnt, Gamevy, Scientific Gaming and Yggdrasil. If you like live games then there’s also a nice selection available to play including Mega Ball which is a bingo meets keno style live game show. Whilst BingoCams doesn’t have any bingo sister sites it does have a number of casino related brands in it’s stable such as Casushi, Peachy Games and Fruity Kings.
Promotions are good at BingoCams. Over the years they’ve given away a Peugeot 107 and 10 x £1000 holidays. In 2011 they ran a £10,000 Golden Ticket promo and that was awarded Promotion of the Year 2012 by Which Bingo! In 2021 they’ve been celebrating their 10th anniversary and this has coincided with more giveaways and prizes. What you do tend to find is that BingoCams do like tournaments and highly convuluted ways of running their promos. It’s not that they’re complicated it’s just that they just seem that way.
The wonderful thing about BingoCams is that it is different to your Foxy, Tombola, Jackpotjoy, Gala and Mecca sites. It offers the game we all love, but brings community and live gaming together in a way that no other site can manage. That won’t be for everyone and the ‘cam’ element can act as a barrier (even though you don’t need to use one). Community is the key for the site and they do have a large social following on Facebook – although not so many on Twitter. It’s well worth liking their pages as they like to exclusive games, bonuses etc on a regular basis.
Penny’s Thoughts On BingoCams
Despite this though the rooms are sparsely populated and the jackpots on offer tend not be very big. Card prices are reasonable but there’s just not too much activity. On the other hand smaller rooms can mean tighter communities and whilst not big wins potentially more regular wins. It really depends what kind of player you are. One thing the site desperately needs is a makeover because it looks retro and way behind the modern looking brands. Hopefully BingoCams can build on it’s 10 years online and continue offering an alternative to the likes of Dragonfish, Jumpman and Pragmatic Play.
