Bingo Diamond Review
Bingo Diamond launched in 2011 but was taken over in 2015 by Broadway Gaming thereby adding to their stable of brands that include Rosy, Butlers, Dotty and Glossy. In October 2020 it made further changes by moving it's bingo rooms to the increasingly popular Pragmatic Play platform. Today Bingo Diamond gives players access to a number of 75 and 90 ball bingo as well as a series of top quality slots, casino games and slot tournaments.
All the Broadway Gaming brands are now very similar in design. They've all been developed for mobile and the there's a pleasing simplicity about them. Big splashes for the welcome offer, slots and bingo rooms dominate the homepage and it's actually quite nice not to see 100s of slots the minute you arrive there. On the flipside we do still think that the logo looks like it was designed using logo generator software that was popular in the late 90s and came free with computer magazines. It's a little bit strange to visit a site called 'Diamond' and not see any diamonds.
Bingo Diamond Welcome Offer
New players to Bingo Diamond are offered a first deposit welcome bonus. Register, login and deposit £10 to get £100 worth of spins on Magic of Sahara. Any wins from these spins will be paid as a bonus. The wagering requirement is x50 which is absurdly high if you're looking to just play bingo at Butlers. If that was the case then we'd advise not accepting the welcome offer Slots players may feel this bonus us OK though as it's comparable to similar games bonuses where wagering terms vary from x40 to x65 and sometimes even higher.
Login to the Bingo Diamond lobby and you will discover just a handful of bingo rooms. These include The Broadway Room (90), Friendship (90), Sapphire, Speed Bingo (30), Spinner Room and Rainbow Room. These rooms are shared with Diamond's sister sites and as far as we're aware Bingo Diamond doesn't have an exclusive room. Ticket prices are reasonable at around 5p and 10 a ticket but since the move to Pragmatic Play we're pleased to report that there are now penny bingo games.
Bingo Diamond Promotions
Slots form a strong element of Bingo Diamond and other Microgaming bingo brands. Top games include Crystal Rift, Shogun Of Time, Zombie Hoard, Agent Jane Blone Returns, Bookie Of Odds and Icy Gems. These are joined by casino games such as roulette, blackjack and video poker. Slot Sprints tournaments are a recent new addition and they give you the chance to win cash and spins each week.
Bingo Diamond runs regular promotions although these are shared with it's sister sites. Promotions in the past have included Jackpot Got2Go where a £1000 jackpot is guaranteed and the Fab4 Jackpot where there are 4 chances to win the big cash pot. During 2018 the Broadway group gave their players the chance to win cars, holidays and cash prizes in big monthly promos. It's early days with respect to moving to Pragmatic Play but we're hoping that there will be good bingo offers going forward.
Bingo Diamond is accessible on mobile, tablet and desktop. The minimum deposit is £10 whilst the minimum withdrawal is £10. Withdrawals under £10 are subject to a £2 fee. Whilst this isn't great this penalty has improved slightly as it used to be for withdrawals under £20. Progressive jackpot wins can't be withdrawn in full. Monthly admin fees are charged should your account become dormant and still contain funds.
As with all brands, Diamond has positives and negatives. We like the active bingo rooms, regular promotions and the occasional specials. However, the wagering terms and various player terms aren't particularly attractive. In fact we feel Bingo Diamond doesn't bring much to the party. We'd like to see some free bingo rooms and perhaps some exclusives to get excited about Bingo Diamond.
