Glossy Bingo is the new sister site to the long established Butlers Bingo. When it first launched, this Pragmatic Play (as of October 2020) powered bingo site appeared as a tabloid style magazine – for example Heat, Chat, Now etc. It looked very different to many others and even featured a large pic of a lady who didn’t look too different to Victoria Beckham! These days the site is a lot more generic – and dare we say it a lot less glossy! However it does have a claim to fame as it’s the home of a £1.2million progressive jackpot winner.
Glossy Bingo Welcome Offer
New players to Glossy Bingo are welcomed with a generous £100 worth of spins on the Magic of Sahara slot. So if you sign up and deposit a tenner – then you get a lot of spins to enjoy. Any wins from these spins will be paid as a bonus. As ever do make sure you check the terms and conditions regarding wagering and withdrawals. In this case wagering terms of x3 for bingo and x50 for games apply.
Glossy has a handful of bingo rooms that offer 90 ball and 75 ball games. These include the main Broadway Room, Boombox and Bingo Blast. The latter is a 90 ball game of bingo on steroids with speedy number calls to take you to the exciting winning part as quickly as possible. Player numbers vary and the price per ticket is usually between 5p and 10p. Joining these rooms are the Spinner Room and Rainbow Room. Sadly, Immortal Romance, an exclusive themed bingo room on the Microgaming platform has closed.
Glossy Bingo Promotions
Casino and slots are available at Glossy. It’s within this section that Mandy from Scotland won over a million playing Major Millions! Other games that feature include Cool Buck, The Phantom Of The Opera, Lucky Links, Highlander, King Tusk, Six Acrobats and Avalon. The casino games are mainly roulette and blackjack focussed although you can find video poker titles. There aren’t any live casino or game shows to play but there are a few instant wins.
Player promotions have been reasonably decent at Glossy and co over recent years. They have offered regular prize giveaways, bonuses and jackpots. Whether that continues on the new set-up remains to be seen. You can still earn rewards! For example when you deposit £10 or more then you unlock 7 days access to the lobby game, Glossy Goodies. Pick from a choice of gifts and you could win a mystery prize every day! Terms apply.
Penny’s Verdict On Glossy
In short Glossy is simply another version of Butlers. Yes we have loads of great 75 and 90 ball games, yes there are big jackpots to be won every month etc but we get them all on the bigger sister site plus Butlers has a better Facebook presence. The welcome offer at Glossy isn’t very appealing in bingo terms and with a new platform in position we’d have expected something like a newbie room or free bingo tickets as a bonus to encourage new players to drop in.
The new bingo rooms are actually OK and more preferable than the old incumbents but it does mean Glossy is now part of a network of 100s rather than just a handful. This will make it much tougher for it’s bingo rooms to stand out. Perhaps even more so when a brand like PlayOJO who are also using Pragmatic Play are offering no wagering terms and a welcome offer to bingo players.
