Silk Bingo Review
Silk Bingo is another site in the United Bingo stable that includes Moon, Robin Hood, Polo and Gossip. Silk - using the Dragonfish/888 platform - and joins the same network as Gossip. It joined this group in 2013 but initially it started life as part of the larger Dragonfish Network. In 2017 it got a much needed makeover leaving a simple but stylish looking site for players.
Silk Bingo claims to offer a "luxurious venue for playing the best bingo and casino games". We're not quite sure that's the case because once you pull back the burgundy curtain of the homepage you're pretty much in the well trodden Dragonfish powered bingo lobby. One also raises a James Bond style eyebrow at the suggestion to join "the high rollers at Silk Bingo and win your fortune instantly". We don't think gambling works like that!
200% Welcome Bonus
Anyway, Silk Bingo offers it's new players a first deposit bonus of 200% up to £200. The minimum deposit is £10 and wagering terms are set at x3 but includes both the deposit + bonus. Newbies can try the site out for a couple of days via one of the four free bingo rooms. No deposit is required, however to continue playing free games you'll need to be a depositor.
The free bingo rooms are in addition to a selection of 75 and 90 ball rooms, and these have recently been joined by the 52 ball room - Suit Up. This uses playing cards instead of bingo balls and the object is to cover your five cards before the other players in order to win the full house. Chat games and progressives make up the rest in terms of bingo!
Be A Super Millionaire
Slots are also available to play at Silk. These, like the bingo rooms, can be accessed directly via mobile or tablet as well as desktop. No apps or downloads are required! Among the top slots at Silk are Fluffy Too, Unicorn Bliss, Wish Upon A Jackpot and Treasure Fair.
Promotions wise there's not a lot to get excited about. Silk doesn't host it's own exclusives and instead relies on networked offers. These include a Super Millionaire game that plays every third Saturday of the month - it's a sliding jackpot game with £1000 guaranteed. We can pretty much guarantee you won't become a millionaire playing it as the odds just aren't in your favour! Other short term offers and promos are usually featured in the lobby.
Why Choose Silk?
There's an old saying "why have cotton when you can have silk"? Well, we wonder why you'd choose silk over a multitude of other Dragonfish powered brands. The free bingo is nice and the welcome offer reasonable. After that though you have nothing else - not even any social media community.
That's not to say you shouldn't play here as everything in that respect is fine. The selection of games and slots is good - and there are occasional promos. We just think it needs to do a little bit more to live up to it's luxurious venue boasts.
