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 100 Free Bingo Tickets to use in the Bargain Bingo Room. Register, login, deposit and spend £10 to be awarded the tickets. Note that you will need to wager on slots or live casino to get this reward. Wagering on bingo will not count whilst live casino only contributes 30% towards the total. For example if you wager £10 on slots you'll get 100 tickets, but £10 on live casino or £10 on bingo will not. Additionally new players have access to free bingo games. See below for more details.
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. However in April 2020 Crown Bingo and it's sister brands introduced the Pragmatic Play bingo product to their roster. This means you can play 75, 80 and 90 ball games in rooms such as Heavy Weight and Bargain Bingo. A newbie room is available to all new players for 7 days after making their very first stake on bingo.
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 arrival of the new Pragmatic Play product means that you'll find occasional jackpot games around special events like Easter and Christmas. You can also join the Heavyweight Room every evening at 9pm for a colossal £600 prize pot. Tickets for this game cost 25p each. Once the new bingo rooms have bedded down then hopefully we will see exclusive offers and rooms for Crown Bingo players?
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. The arrival of the Pragmatic Play bingo product may help arrest that falling. It does seem that Crown are definately going down a no wagering route for bonuses too. The welcome offer is now more appealing for bingo players especially with the newbie room paying out in cash prizes.
Whilst we're pleased to see Crown trying to regenerate their bingo product it does also mean less and less exclusivity for players. Nektan, Jumpman and now Bede Gaming/LeoVegas brands are all using the same product. And there's nothing unique or exclusive across multiple sites. Crown does have the slightly better welcome package though and that's the best reason to visit. Sadly we can't direct you to Crown because they don't want any more UK players from bingo portals.
