Moon Bingo is the flagship brand in the United Bingo group (Robin Hood, Ted, Gossip, Sugar, Polo etc). It launched in July 2009 and since then has had a few incarnations. The original site theme was the actual moon and even had bingo players in space suits bouncing around as part of a TV campaign. Over time, the site has developed a more dreamy astro theme. Players are invited to ‘Dream Big, Win Bigger’.
If you choose to join Moon Bingo then for a £10 first deposit you’ll receive a 200% bonus up to £100. In addition you’ll also collect 100 spins. These will be distrubuted in the shape of 20 Free Spins every day for 5 days on the following slot games: Fluffy Favourites, Twinkle, Enchanted Prince, Unicorn Bliss & Irish Luck. Wagering terms apply – x3 (bonus + deposit) for bingo and x99 for any wins generated on the spins. This hefty term does make the spins element of the welcome offer a little bit less attractive.
Free Moon Bingo
Sweetening the deal is the fact that you can enjoy three days of free bingo at Moon, with no deposit needed. In the past this would have been a highlight, but this offer is now standard at pretty much every brand that’s powered by Dragonfish. Depositors have access to even more free games but these are dependent on the amount of your deposits. Do check out the promotions page in the lobby area of the site or the chat box as quite often there are extra reload bonuses available.
Inside the lobby, you’ll find a handful of bingo rooms and access to over 300 slots. There are 75 and 90 ball rooms including Penny Express and Gimme More. These are joined by a 52 ball playing card themed game called Suits Up. Note that some of these rooms are networked with Moon’s sister sites. Although this site is powered by Dragonfish, it’s network is independent of the Dragonfish Network of sites (e.g. Prize Bingo, Bingo Fabulous, Bubble Bonus etc).
Self Made Millionaire
Joining the rooms are a number of jackpot games including The Daily Grand, £777 Nightly Lucky Jackpot, £250 1p Daily Jackpot and Self Made Millionaire. Do note that many of the jackpots offered by Moon – and it’s sister sites – are usually sliding jackpots. Joining these are progressive 75 ball and 90 ball jackpots plus over 300 slots. These include Piggy Payout, Monopoly, Jack In The Box, Spectra, Jurassic Giants and, of course, Fluffy Favourites.
Promotions, aside from the jackpots mentioned above, aren’t that prevalent at Moon these days. However, you can earn coins daily simply by logging in and spinning the bonus wheel. These coins can eventually be converted into bingo bonuses. There’s also a prize wheel which guarantees you a prize when you get to spin it – the downside is that it’ll take you £500 to get a spin.
When Moon launched we anticipated that it would hit the same heights as Foxy, Wink and Costa – all of which use the same software platform. To an extent they’ve fallen short but are still a decent site to play. There are plenty of jackpots and bonuses available – but do watch out for those wagering terms and the guaranteed prizes versus headline prizes. If you prefer just playing slots then you may want to look at Moon Games instead.
