Butlers Bingo Review
Butlers Bingo launched during 2011 on the Microgaming platform. It's the flagship brand of the Broadway Group that includes Dotty, Rosy, Bingo Diamond and Glossy. Login to find a selection of 75 and 90 ball bingo rooms plus access to over over 300 top online slot games. If you're considering an alternative to Virtue Fusion or Dragonfish brands then this could be the site for you? But will your bingo be served up on a silver platter?
Back in the day when bingo brands has character, Butlers Bingo boasted a site mascot (or butler) with a Rhett Butler look. He was moustachioed, suave and sophisticated. Any resemblance to the Gone With The Wind Star being purely coincidental. Sadly the Butler and his partner Astrid have gone completely. This leaves Butlers quite sterile in terms of character. The site has now been developed to be more mobile responsive and appropriate for handheld devices. In fairness it looks OK bathed in large swathes of purple. A bit of character however wouldn't go amiss!
Butlers Bingo Welcome Offer
New players to Butlers are offered a 200% first deposit bonus. Register, login and deposit £10 to get £20 extra to play. We do have an exclusive offer for Loquax players. Follow the link above and play the fruit machine to generate your welcome offer. This should give you a 400% bonus plus up to 200 spins on Dragon Shard. However be warned with respect to both these welcome offers. The wagering requirement is x50 which is absurdly high if you're looking to play bingo. Slots players may feel it's OK though as it's comparable to similar games bonuses.
Should you choose to try bingo at Butlers then you'll find a handful of networked 75 ball and 90 ball bingo rooms. These include The Broadway Room, Friendship, Sapphire, Speed Bingo, Spinner Room and Rainbow Room. Ticket prices are reasonable and the rooms are active. Typically you'll find that bingo tickets cost between 5p and 25p. All these rooms are shared with other Broadway Gaming owned brands such as Dotty Bingo and Glossy Bingo. Sadly the exclusive Immortal Romance Bingo game has been discontinued.
Butlers Bingo Promotions
During 2018 Butlers Bingo and it's sister brands ran several big bingo promotions. The prizes ranged from Hyundai cars through to a year of groceries. These days there are still regular offers but not on the same scaled. Amongst the current offers you'll find Cash Drop that takes places every Saturday and Sunday. There's also The Big Weekender that's scheduled for the last weekend of every month. Look out for the Spinner Room where you can win slot spins and Jackpot2Go Community Jackpots. This is a £1000 pot that when won sees £500 go to the winner and £500 shared with all roomies who purchased tickets to the jackpot winning game.
Regular players can also pick up a Daily Deal. If you have deposited £10 or more within the last seven days, then you can win free spins and bonuses. Simply launch the Daily Deal game via the bell icon in the lobby. You get one spin each day. Just match three symbols to win the daily prize! This is a great reward for regular players and the rewards increase as you progress from Level 1 up to Level 5. However do take note of the wagering terms. As with the welcome offer the wagering requirement is set at x50.
Over the years we've struggled to be fans of the Microgaming platform. For us it's always promised a lot and under delivered. We don't know why but it's never been our first choice platform. That said there are plenty of good reasons to choose Butlers. The rooms are active, it's a good alternative to Dragonfish and Virtue Fusion, and there are regular promos. The ticket prices are reasonable too and of course you can play on mobile, tablet and desktop. Throw in a good selection of top slots like Mega Moolah, Major Millions and Immortal Romance.
The biggest issue with respect to Butlers Bingo is the wagering terms. As a slots bonus a requirement of x50 is comparable to Dragonfish and Jumpman. However as a bingo bonus x50 is way off the scale. Most Virtue Fusion brands have terms of x2 to x4. If this was lower for bingo players or if you don't take the bonuses then Butlers Bingo is a good alternative. We don't know if they'll ever return to the days of giving away cars but Butlers we feel is always one to keep an eye.. just in case.
