When Paddy Power Bingo first launched their bingo channel we wrote “the Irish bookmakers have launched their bingo hall, and for other bookies out there… this is how it should be done”. At that time we were impressed by their generous welcome offer and abundance of information for players. Paddy Power Bingo has been a quirky brand since it’s launch – who can forget their TV advert campaign with their oversized pigeon dropping luck on to players below! In 2018 the quality of bookie bingo sites has improved dramatically – so are Paddy Power still leading the way?
New players at PPB are welcomed with a 400% welcome bonus. Deposit and spend just £10 to receive a £15 bonus for bingo and a £25 bonus for games. Wagering terms apply and these are set at x5 for bingo and x20 for slots. With many big brands, including those on the Virtue Fusion platform, wanting a minimum £10 deposit and spend, PPB’s £5 requirement makes it extremely attractive.
Super Bargain Bingo
PPB offers a good variety of rooms for the discerning bingo player. These include a selection of 75 and 90 ball rooms plus specialist rooms including Bouncy Balls (36), DOND Bingo (90), Lucky Numbers (90), Who Wants To Be A Millionaire (90), Rainbow Riches (40) and Cash Cubes (36). Many of these rooms are networked with other brands on the Virtue Fusion Network whilst others are linked with Paddy’s sister site at Betfair.
Promotions are also shared with Betfair Bingo and other networked brands. This includes a newbie room which is accessible to players after they’ve played just £1. New qualifying players can access the room for up to 10 days to play for £5 and £10 bingo bonus pools (terms apply). There’s also free bingo for regular players – just log in to Bingo and play in the Super Bargain Room during the promotional period to play free games every 30 minutes. Prizes are awarded as bonuses that come with a x1 wagering term.
Earn Star Rewards
If you like slots then Paddy Power has an abundance of options for players. There are games in the bingo channel plus casino and games. These slots which include Paddy’s exclusive Lucky Pigeon game are accessible on mobile, desktop and tablet. Mobile apps are also available but note that there may be some limitations. Top slots on the bingo channel include Mafia Millions, Clover Rollover, Leprechaun’s Luck, Wild Gambler, Full Moon Fortunes, Fruity Burst, Zodiac Supernova and Amazon Wild.
Regular players at PPB can earn Star Rewards as they play. Every 1000 earns a £1 bingo bonus! At the basic level, White Star, players earn 50 points for every £10 wagered on bingo. Players at the White Star level are also rewarded with a £200 free bingo room every month. The rewards scheme offers four levels – White, Silver, Gold and Super Nova. The higher up the levels the more rewards that are unlocked.
Paddy Power Bingo offers players a good selection of bingo variants as well as top slots. Throw in poker and sportsbook and there’s plenty for the online gambler to enjoy – especially at a brand that loves to be fun and quirky. A site revamp is a necessity though and if that does come along as expected then it should propel PPB back in contention.
