Bingo Storm Review
Bingo Storm launched in March 2019 and became yet another brand on the expanding Real Money Network powered by Dragonfish. This means that any bonuses are paid out in cash and therefore wagering terms aren't an issue. Players have access to numerous bingo rooms, online jackpots and top slots. Unusually this isn't a Tau Gaming brand and that means it does offer something more to players. This is The Storm Wheel and it gives players the chance to get extra rewards including on their first deposit.
The Bingo Storm site is simply designed but still looks quite stylish. Bathed in blue there's a bit of a white cloud design which gives a nice nod towards the brand name. Mind the clouds are more summer day rather than stormy skies! The latest promotions, popular slots and jackpot slots feature on the remainder of the homepage. Surprisingly Bingo Storm, unlike many others, doesn't opt to write a bunch of blurb to proclaim itself as the number one bingo site. Bingo Storm is accessible on mobile, tablet and desktop.
Bingo Storm Welcome Offer
New players are welcomed to Bingo Storm with a first deposit bonus of free spins and a spin of The Storm Wheel. Register, login, deposit and wager £10 to get 10 spins on the Irish Luck slot. Any wins from these spins will be paid in cash. Additionally you'll also qualify for a spin of The Storm Wheel. This rewards based wheel gives you the chance to win extra spins or cash prizes. In the past Bingo Storm have offered free bingo tickets as part of their welcome package but this changed during 2020. Many Real Money Network brands also require wagering before releasing the slots aspect of the welcome bonus even though wins are capped at just £1.
Login to the Bingo Storm lobby and you'll find the usual 75 ball and 90 ball rooms that are standard on this platform. Rooms include Blighty 90, Kaching, Ace Club and Gobsmacked. Ticket prices vary but expect to pay around 5p to 10p for the majority of games. In addition there are big jackpot games such as the £1500 Tuesday Rocks that costs just 25p a ticket to play. Additionally you can play Bingo Roulette - a 52 ball game and Mystery Jackpots. The playing card game, Hits 52, doesn't seem to be available at Bingo Storm.
Bingo Storm Promotions
Bingo Storm does offer free games. These can be played in Free4U every 30 minutes from 4pm to 11pm! Games are only accessible to new players (no deposit needed) and depositing players and all prizes are paid in cash. The Saucy Sunday £250 game and £1K Mondays jackpot are also free for depositing players. However, these games are shared by all Dragonfish Network and Real Money Network sites. Other promotions are quite limited. There are daily rewards such as cashback, free bingo tickets and free spins but you'll need to climb through 15 levels before getting all the benefits. We'd be surprised if many players reach that level.
Like it's numerous sister sites, Bingo Storm does have a good selection of slots. These are provided by top operators including Eyecon Games, Barcrest and Rainbow Riches. Popular slots include Starburst, Slingo Rainbow Riches, Temple Of Iris, Cleopatra, Autumn Gold, 99 Time, Noughts & Crosses and Bonanza. A handful of progressive jackpot slots are also part of the roster. Casino games such as roulette and blackjack don't seem to be on the roster. Even live casino game shows aren't available here. We also couldn't find any video poker games either. However there are a number of Slingo titles and a handful of Megaways slots.
Bingo Storm is a good looking site with no wagering terms. The welcome offer initially seems appealing but to claim it you need to deposit and wager. The Storm Wheel is a nice extra, but without it you're actually only receiving a bonus of up to 10%. Yes there are no wagering terms but it does feel a little on the poor side. Most certainly there are no free bingo tickets which are part of the new player offers at other real money brands.
One big reason to jump on to sites like Bingo Storm, and other sites on the same network, is the daily rewards. However for most players these are quite limited. We suspect that the vast majority of Bingo Storm players are unlikely to qualify for cashback or the exclusive bingo rooms and will only receive a few spins and bingo tickets. Whilst loyalty rewards are nice we just don't know if there's enough value here. Like sites such as Bingo Idol, in our view Bingo Storm is a brand we'd love to see do well, but it needs to do more than be a no wagering brand with a bonus wheel.
