Flip Flop Bingo Review
The Nektan platform is best known for being a platform for online slots. However in 2019 it introduced bingo to a number of sites. Unusually the bingo product wasn't their own but a third part product designed by Pragmatic Play. This new addition to the Nektan platform therefore saw the launch of their first dedicated bingo brand - Flip Flop Bingo. Although it features slots and casino games the popular numbers game is front and centre.
Flip Flops may be odd bedfellows for a bingo brand, but in a world with Lucky Pants, Say Yes To The Dress and Duck Duck then Flip Flop is in good company. The site itself isn't that inspiring though. We'd like to be enticed into the bingo rooms with a desert island scene - somewhere relaxing where casual footwear is king. However we get a standard Nektan looking site but with the bingo rooms being featured instead of the top slots.
Flip Flop Bingo Welcome Bonus
New players to Flip Flop Bingo are offered a decent welcome package. Register, deposit using the code BINGO and spend a minimum of £10 on bingo to qualify. In return you'll receive a £30 bonus, 30 bonus spins on Fluffy Favourites and a week of free bingo. Wagering terms apply and these are x5 the bonus and deposit and x40 for any wins generared from the spins. As far as we understand wins in the free bingo room are paid as cash.
Inside the lobby you'll find a handful of active bingo rooms. There are 75, 80 and 90 ball options including Jackpot, Clockwork, Boombox and Stars & Stripes. We'd say that the rooms are basic but functional. The 90 ball rooms tend to be the most popular! Ticket prices range from 1p upwards but typically expect to pay 5p to 10p a ticket on most games. There are no chat facilities available which means you can't interact with your fellow roomies.
Flip Flop Bingo Promotions
Nektan brands boast an extensive selection of slots and Flip Flop is no exception. Jackpots, Daily Drops & Wins and Instant Win games are highlighted under their own tabs. However for the more popular games such as Cleopatra, Rainbow Riches, Starburst, Aloha, Berryburst, Fluffy Favourites and Bonanza can be found under 'All Games'. If you like Megaways slots then you can use the search facility to find over 20 games including the recently launched Monopoly version.
Flip Flop Bingo Promotions are limited. The main highlights seem to be regular jackpot games to celebrate events such as St Patrick's Day, Mother's Day and Easter. For example an Easter Jackpot game with a £500 prize pot is available with tickets costing 25p each. Other offers are brand exclusive so for example you may be offered bonus spins when making a deposit. As with all bonus offers make sure you're aware of any wagering terms that will apply.
One thing that's not lacking at Flip Flop Bingo, and indeed other Nektan sites, is the number of payment options. Neteller, Boku, Zimpler, Paysafecard and Skrill are amongst the options to fund your account. Despite these various choices Paypal isn't available which is quite unusual. Responsible Gambling tools at Flip Flop include being able to set a deposit limit. For other options including taking a break and self exclusion you'll need to contact customer services.
New bingo products are hard to establish so it will take time for Pragmatic Play's product to build up players. Sites like Flip Flop will help the process as will the recent implementation by Jumpman Gaming. It's good to see activity in the bingo rooms and there's a choice of game variations. We would like to see more free and prize games though to encourage more players to take a look. A no deposit bonus could also be beneficial as could some exclusives.
