Originally a US based site, Bingo.com crossed over to the UK when online gambling became a bit of an issue Stateside. Since then they're had more platforms than Clapham Junction. Starting life on Aberrant Software they tried Cozy Games before joining The Maria Bingo Network on Virtue Fusion. In 2015 Bingo.com, Unibet and Maria created their own platform with Relax Gaming.
The various platform changes haven't really helped Bingo.com, but they're now firmly established with Relax Gaming. The site is simple looking with pastel shades of blue and yellow being used to highlight the bold red of the logo. An abundance of dogs that bizarrely occupied an old incarnation of the website have now gone. However, the lady in a pantry that's currently being used to highlight the welcome offer does nothing to suggest bingo is a younger person's pastime.
Bingo.com Welcome Bonus
New players to Bingo.com are welcomed with a 200% first deposit bonus. In addition 10 free spins for 4 days (40 free spins in total) are also awarded. The wagering requirement for the bonus is 40 times in order to redeem any bonus winnings. In our view this is quite high. We understand x40 for a games bonus but not for bingo. On the flipside any wins from the spins attract a wagering term of just x15 which is a lot better than you receive for most other gaming bonuses. Either way it's something to be aware of when you deposit.
There is free bingo for new players at Bingo.com. Register as a new player and you will have access to the exclusive newbie room Beginners Luck for 14 days. All games offer the chance to win real cash. This is by far the most generous Newbie Room offer out there. However note that it's open from 6pm to 7pm every day and you can only play 75 ball bingo games. Given that most UK players enjoy 90 ball games it does surprise us that newbie rooms always focus on 75 ball variants instead.
Login to Bingo.com and you will find 90 and 75 ball games. These include The Grand, The Mystery, Supersonic, Glamour Hall and All Stars. Note that Bingo.com does attract European visitors so you may find some of the prizes and ticket costs are displayed in Euros. The site also shares rooms with it's sister brand at Unibet. Considering Bingo.com isn't on the usual Dragonfish or Virtue Fusion platforms the bingo rooms are quite active. Ticket prices start from around 5p and there are decent sized pots and jackpots on offer.
As well as the 14 days free bingo and welcome offer there are other promotions at Bingo.com. However you might need to work at Bletchley Park to decipher them! Look out for regular jackpots, bargain bingo games and slots tournaments. Beyond that there's not really any major prize giveaways like you find at Jackpotjoy, Heart or Sun Bingo. However there's enough to keep most players interested and returning to Bingo.com
Slots players are very well catered for at Bingo.com. A casino and live casino section gives access to top slots and games such as Starburst, Monopoly Live, Megaways slots and big money progressives like Mega Moolah. Bingo.com are also the only bingo brand that offer access to betting on lotteries. Gala Bingo used to offer this via their Flutter channel but that was a short lived affair. Note that betting is not available for The National Lottery game.
Bingo.com might not be on the popular platforms but it's worth a visit for something different. The 14 days free trial should be adequate time to determine if you like the Relax Gaming software. The busy rooms are attractive and the prices reasonable. However the wagering term on the welcome bonus isn't the best. Overall though there's more here to like than dislike and it's a good alternative to the vast number of sites using the same platforms.
