Lucky Pants Bingo Review
Lucky Pants Bingo is the second brand from the people who launched Kitty Bingo. As with sister site Kitty it's been launched with a big media campaign, both online and offline. Over £1million is being spent on TV, radio and web promotion.
No Deposit Bingo?
To celebrate their launch, Lucky Pants Bingo are giving each new player 500 free bingo cards and 20 free spins with no deposit or credit card details required. The bonus is credited at £5 bingo funds! This is a good deal, especially as it is available as soon as you have registered your details. There is no having to wait whilst your account is verified, or having to contact live chat help etc!
The 20 free spins are only for selected slot games: Cash Scoop, The Lost Slot of Riches, Cute & Cuddly, Jazz Cat Slot, Kitty Kash, Santa's Stash, Easter Coop, Grease, Cash Scoop, New Grease, Winbledon, Wired Birds, Groovy Revolution, Lady Luck Deluxe, Bubble Time and Grease: Danny & Sandy.
New Player Bingo Bonus
Lucky Pants Bingo also offer a 300% bonus plus 100 free spins. Deposit £10 and they give you an extra £30, so you end up with £40 to spend on bingo/games. You can get this offer for between £10 and £50 when you make your first payment. There is also a 50% match bonus on on all your re-deposits over £10 for as long as you are a member of the site.
Cashback Or Bonusback?
All players will receive lifelong cashback (as bonus money) of up to 15% depending on your VIP level. The lowest starting at 5% going up to 15%! To go up levels, you have to collect points. Earn 1 point per 10p of bingo and 1 per £1 of scratch card and instant game wagering. The main benefits of going up levels seem to be increased cashback, a larger birthday bonus of up to £100 and a reduced withdrawal pending period.
What About The Bingo?
Lucky Pants has lots of bingo rooms with 75 and 90 ball games including Lucky Stripes, Polka Dots, Fat Cat, Droopy Draws, Red Hearts, Silky Smooth and Penny Heaven for the penny bingo fans out there! There are daily weekly and monthly No Limits Bingo games, progressive jackpot 90 Ball Spin Cycle and 75 Ball Spin Cycle games and a £10K Slider game on the last Friday of every month. There is some free bingo on, but it's only for funded players.
We had a play in the Lucky Stripes room. The gaming area is nicely laid out with the card buying selection on the left. The card price is very clear and a nice big penny with the price on drops into the middle of the screen. This is especially useful for when the price changes between games, say an increase from 2p to 5p. The auto select strips numbers are a sensible amount, (2,4,6 and 8 in this room). If you pick the wrong one, it's as easy as clicking on the number you do want, not actually add more as happens on other bingo sites. The 1TG and 2TG indicators flash up with nice big stars too.
Do You Need A Fur Coat?
It isn't all posh knickers however, there are a couple of grey pants with holes lurking in the drawer. On half of the calls, the bingo caller sounds depressed, a bit more enthusiasm would help keep it lively! There are also no audio alerts for any of the line winners or jackpot winners. Not very helpful if you are checking your email at the same time and realise you've missed all the action!
Even though new players get £5 free to play on bingo, we would like to see more free bingo. We think it's an important tool in retaining players who may not always choose to pay to play.
The My Account page has game details, but we feel Lucky Pants would benefit from a more detailed schedule for the week ahead, not just for the next hour or so. Currently, the option to pre-buy is only available on 4 bingo games. We think allowing players to pre-buy for more games would give them more flexibility, especially if they can only play at certain times.
On the whole, Lucky Pants Bingo is definitely worth a visit. The no deposit bonus is a very attractive offer alongside the 300% first time deposit bonus, reload bonus and lifetime cashback. These deals are probably time limited to coincide with the launch of the site until they become established in the UK bingo market, so take advantage while they last!
