Heart Bingo is the official bingo site for Heart Radio. In September 2021 they joined the Pragmatic Play platform alongside new partner Betvictor. This move was a surprise as Heart had been an iconic brand on the Gamesys platform and had recently added it’s sister station, Smooth Radio with Smooth Bingo, to the portfolio. Smooth unfortunately has been discontinued for now but how will Heart fair in it’s new home. To be fair we were worried by the decision to move but early signs are positive with Heart Bingo launching exclusive rooms, a daily free game too and even roping Olly Murs into the mix.
Heart Bingo Welcome Offer
New players to Heart Bingo who spend £10 are rewarded with free bingo tickets and free spins. If you have played at Heart before then you will need to register again at the new site. Register, login, deposit and spend £10 to receive 500 tickets and 25 spins. The tickets can be used in the exclusive Heart Bonanza room whilst the spins must be used for Heart Bonanza Slot. Any wins from these spins or tickets are paid in cash and therefore attract no wagering terms. Newbies can also play the daily free Heart Bonanza Daily Game for 14 days after registration (with no deposit needed). Furthermore there’s also a newbie room which is accessible for free bingo after a wager of just 1p.
Heart Bingo Rooms
Moving platforms is a risky business and we were concerned that they’d not be enough on Pragmatic Play’s platform to soften the transition. To be fair we think Heart have done a great job and players have plenty of options. Firstly there are the network rooms – these are shared by Jumpman brands, PlayOJO, Crown, Betvictor etc. Heart & Soul is the main 90 ball room, Fun Fest provides 80 ball games and Dance Floor 75. There’s also speedy 30 ball bingo and Bingo Blast. These are joined by Drop Pots (Candy Hearts), Session Bingo, The Reels Room and Heart’s own exclusive Heart Bonanza Bingo. A number of jackpot games complete a decent roster.
Free Daily Game
One big surprise with respect to the move to Pragmatic Play was that Heart still have a daily free to play game. Heart Bonanza is very much in the mould of Tiki’s Catch Of The Day and Paper Wins. Each day you’re invited to select six squares on the grid to reveal symbols. Match enough of the same symbols to win either free spins, free bingo tickets or cash prizes. The top prize is £500 and this is won if you match 10 hearts on the grid. Note you will need to play daily for the best chances to win. There isn’t an end of month bonus round though!
Heart Bingo Slots
Slots do feature on Heart there are plenty to choose from including some exclusives like Heart Slingo, Bubble Wild and Olly Murs’ Big BoX Bonanaza. The number of slots have increased over time and these days you’ll also find big name games such as Jack Hammer 2, Wheel of Fortune, Rainbow Riches, Fluffy Favourites, Fluffy Too and Starburst as well as a range of jackpot, slingo and megaways titles. Live casino games are also available and include the recently launched Cash or Crash. For bingo players we suggest taking a look at the Mega Ball game show as it’s a mix of keno and bingo but with a live presenter.
Heart Bingo Promotions
Promotions used to be quite limited at Heart Bingo, but after Sun Bingo’s move from Gamesys to Virtue Fusion, Heart really upped it’s game. During the latter half of 2016 they were giving away cars and £10,000 gadget bundles. The size of the the prizes has reduced since then, but they did celebrate 10 years online with various prize offers. It’s early days for the new platform so offers seem to be limited to free bingo and network jackpots. We hope to see Heart back on form with big prizes though.
Penny’s Thoughts On Heart Bingo
Heart Bingo has always been one of the top bingo brands and it came as a shock to see it move to another platform. Even more so a platform that has a lot of promise but hasn’t quite hit the heights of Virtue Fusion or Gamesys. However we have been pleasently suprised by the offering from the new look Heart Bingo. Olly Murs as a brand ambassador, exclusive games, newbie room, free bingo and the free daily game show that Heart still mean business. New rooms like Drop Pots and Reel Rooms are also welcome additions. To date PlayOJO has always been the best Pragmatic Play bingo option (in our view) but Heart have gone straight in at number one – we expect them to stay there.
