Crown Bingo Review
Crown Bingo have been around for quite a while now having launched back in 2005. However like Mecca they're also well known for offline bingo clubs. The online version of Crown is the flagship site of a group of brands powered Bede Gaming and now owned by LeoVegas. Back in 2017 we described Crown as "one of the most well established bingo sites in the UK". Unfortunately it's not been plain sailing since then!
Crown Bingo is a site is full of colour but as a first time visitor you might be forgiven for thinking it's a slots brand. The site is dominated by slots and bingo is confined to a few promotional slides and a small link in the top right of the site. There's probably good reason for this as bingo has dropped off the radar at Crown. It's also lost a number of it's sister sites including the over hyped Bingo Godz.
Crown Bingo Welcome Offer
If you join Crown Bingo as a new player then you'll be welcomed with a 100% bonus up to £50. This bonus offer comes with a x4 wagering condition. In addition to the bonus you're also offered a week of free bingo games, however by initially depositing £30 you can get extra games via the VIP room. There is a no deposit bonus for new players of £1 and winnings can be boosted by x10. The drawback here is you end up with a x99 wagering term on your winnings!
Back in 2017 we told you that there was a good range of bingo rooms to choose from at Crown! These included Virtue Fusion options like Deal Or No Deal and even a live bingo experience, Studio Live. Now you'll find a 75 ball room, a 90 ball room and a weekly pre-buy jackpot game. These are joined by a speed bingo room and the newbies free room as mentioned above. Room activity isn't too bad and ticket prices range from a few pence upwards. There's just not much choice!
Crown Bingo Promotions
For fans of slots there's a good range of games to choose from. Among the popular titles are The Goonies, Cleopatra, Starburst, Rainbow Riches, Pixies Of The Forest, Piggy Riches Megaways and Monopoly Megaways. On top of that you'll find extra games in the Live Casino, Jackpots and Instant Win sections of Crown Bingo. Most games can be played via mobile, tablet and desktop. An app for Android phones is available via the GooglePlay store.
Like many bingo sites promotions have become quite limited. The highlight is that Room 1 hosts a £500 Daily Drop game at 9pm Saturday to Thursday. It costs 50p to play and offers a full house prize of £300. Look out for Daily Deals and Fair For All Games too. The free room for newbies is also accessible to all players provided they have made a £10 deposit within the past 14 days. One further plus is that if Crown offer you free spins then these have no wagering terms!
Crown Bingo have been around in online bingo for years and it offers players a decent place to play. However up against other big brands such as Buzz Bingo, Gala and Mecca we have to say Crown are falling behind. They do have positives including some exciting jackpots, popular slots and daily deals. They also still have a no deposit welcome bonus which is a bit of a novelty these days. The free bingo room is also an attractive feature.
One thing we can't quite understand is why Crown are happy to offer wager free slot spins but then lump on an astronomical wagering term to the £1 newbie bonus. This offer really isn't that great and newbies may overlook the high terms. Sadly we can't direct you to Crown because they don't want any more UK players from bingo portals.
