When William Hill Bingo launched back in 2007 we commented that it in the shadows of it’s bookmaker competitors and that it lacked enough bells and whistles to stand out. Since that early review however things have changed dramatically for this Virtue Fusion based brand. In our view it’s now one of the leading brands on the network and offers players a good mix of regular network promotions and exclusives.
If you’re expecting to get a welcome bonus as a new William Hill Bingo player then you’re in for a little surprise. The brand have taken the bold step to do away with a welcome offer in light of recent UKGC guidelines on bonuses plus UK taxation changes. This means that when you sign up you don’t need to worry about bonus money or wagering terms. In some respects this is a positive as it clarifies your account, but if you’re a bonus fan then it may make you choose elsewhere.
Fortunately, William Hill are keeping their New Arrivals room open. This is accessible to new players after they’ve deposited and wagered £10 on the site. The Arrivals Lounge offers free bingo games for 8 days, with a generous prize fund of over £3,200 to be won. The room is open at 10.00 – 11.00, 16.00 – 17.00 and 19.00 – 20.00. Any winnings are paid as a bonus and a wagering term may apply.
Slots Of Bingo Rooms
On a more positive note, bingo wise there’s loads to choose from at William Hill Bingo – with up to 22 rooms accessible to players. These include 75 ball, 80 ball and 90 ball games. Plus you’ll find Deal Or No Deal, Lucky Numbers, Rainbow Riches Room and the recently added exclusive Bingo Bowl to add some variation to the traditional games. If you like free or cheap games then The Bargain Basement is your room as William Hill regularly run freebies or penny bingo days/weeks in that section.
For games players there’s the usual sides to enjoy including Big Top Tombola, Deal Or No Deal, Pink Panther, Wild Gambler and many more. Whilst William Hill Bingo do regularly run slot bonus offers and slot games can be involved in some promotions we feel that they are currently one of the few brands really not pushing slots to players. If you’re a not of them that’s actually a big positive.
The promotions area of William Hill Bingo however is really where the big ticks are – or at least were! As a Virtue Fusion brand they have the usual BingoLinx Jackpots, Winner’s Night, Value Nights and End Of The Month Party – but on top of that there’s usually always something exclusive. Whether it’s a prize draw, a mobile promotion, free bingo or penny bingo there’s always something going on. We’d go as far to say that this puts William Hill up near the top when it comes to bookies bingo sites!
If all this wasn’t enough to wax lyrical about then there’s also the active social pages of William Hill Bingo. Through Facebook you can be regularly reminded of what’s on at the site plus occasionally there are prize draws for followers. You can play on mobile as well so it’s the whole package. We’re hard pushed to find fault with William Hill Bingo to date, however the loss of the welcome bonus and early signs of less promos is a little worrying. There’s still plenty to like though.
