Heart Bingo Review
Updated On Wednesday 15th May 2013
New Player Offer: 400% Bonus
Gamesys wagering terms and conditions will apply
Heart Bingo is the official games site for Heart radio. It's also the latest brand using Jackpotjoy/Gamesys's bingo and gaming platform. They follow The Sun and Caesar's Bingo in having fully branded and standalone sites powered this way - and it's a welcome change from the many Virtue Fusion sites we've seen lately.
New Player Deposit Bonus?
Heart Bingo have previously offered £5 free with no deposit required and a 100% bonus, while the freebie has now gone, the deposit bonus has been increased to 200%! Deposit £10 and Heart will give you an extra £20 to play bingo with. The offer is valid up to a maximum of £50.
Enter The Bingo Rooms
There are two 90 ball rooms, Heart Bingo 90, Heart Medley and the 80 ball Heart Bingo 80 room – but still no 75 ball room! Super Snap has been a recent addition, it's a card game where players can play for a share of the community chest prize as well as the game jackpot. While Heart is light on the choice of bingo rooms, they have plenty of slots on offer. The X Factor, Cleopatra, Tiki's Island, Fortune Temple start from 1p, while progressive jackpot games like Tycoon's Progressive and Bullion Bonanza cost start from 25p and £1.
I Heart Freebies
Sadly, there are not loads of weekly or monthly promotions, but Heart Bingo do have a free daily game - Doubly Bubbly! The prizes are cash or free spins on a slot game, in this case the Doubly Bubbly slot. We have played similar games for weeks on end and disappointingly have only ever won free spins. If you are after a fun game to play for free every day, then this one ticks the box.
Another one to look out for is Monday Bargains which has £1,000 up for grabs in hourly linked games with cards costing just 1p each! As well as the penny bingo, Heart offer BOGOF on tickets, free bingo, guaranteed jackpots and 10% cashback which will be credited to your account the next day. There is a £10 maximum payout and will only be given on losses, so if you win more than you lose, the cashback won't be added to your account. Heart also give you the opportunity to get free bingo cards every day! There is BOGOF on bingo tickets for 3 hours every day between 10-11am, 1-2pm and 6-7pm on Bingo 90 games.
Are There Any Big Jackpot Games?
Being on the Gamesys platform means Heart offers Linked Games throughout the day, where players from across the same bingo network will play together for higher jackpots, with the card prices tending to be lower than non-linked high value games. There are daily prizes of up to £2,000 up for grabs while Community Super Jackpots go up to £10,000 and £25,000.
Can We Get An App With That?
At the time of writing there isn't a mobile version of Heart Games, however we understand that sister sites Virgin and Sun Bingo are going mobile in May so perhaps something is just around the corner! The good news is that they are on Facebook and Twitter give them a like and a follow to find out about any new promotions.
While the Gamysys platform makes for excellent game play, Heart Bingo is still lacking some of it's own identity. Another bingo room and Super Snap! have been added since we last reviewed them, but we would like to see more Heart related games, more bingo rooms and some DJ callers/chats. The top banner features a Listen Now button so players can listen to the radio station while playing, so why not incorporate their regular shows into the bingo rooms? Hopefully, by the time the next review comes round, Heart Bingo will have an identity all of it's own.
