Give Back Bingo Review
Following in the footsteps of Kitty, Lucky Pants and Bingo Extra is Give Back Bingo. This brand differentiates itself from it's Daub sister sites by donating to a different charity every month. They're hoping to do this by enticing players into the site with 75 and 90 ball bingo games, slots and scratchcards. Added to this mix are regular promotions and progressive jackpots. Dedicated charity bingo sites have come and gone over the years, so can Give Back be successful when many others have struggled?
When you visit Give Back Bingo you're met with a colourful, but well laid out, site. Pink is the predominant colour and there's a cute looking dog, named Stanley, on hand to add character to proceedings. Links to the latest slots, bingo rooms plus news on the current jackpots fill up the homepage. They are also joined by articles related to charity and the donations made by the site. Give Back Bingo is accessible to players on mobile, tablet and desktop. No app is required.
Give Back Bingo Bonus
New players to Give Back Bingo are offered a 150% deposit bonus plus spins. Register, login and deposit £10 to £100 to receive the bonus. The maximum bonus available is £150. All first depositors receive 20 spins. These spins are available on Aloha Cluster Pays only. Wagering terms apply to both bonus and spins. The terms at time of writing are x4 for bingo (deposit + bonus) and x25 for the spins. Full details can be found at the site.
Enter the lobby at Give Back and you'll find just a handful of options. In fact, 75 ball and 90 ball rooms are all you'll find bingo wise at Give Back. Lucky Ducky, Chatterbox, Penny Bingo and Free Bingo are the main rooms. These are joined by a series of jackpot games such as The Weekly £1000 Jackpot and The £10K Must Go. Surprisingly the rooms at GBB are very quiet and that's a bit of a concern. More so as Give Back shares it's rooms and jackpots with Kitty Bingo, Lucky Pants and Bingo Extra.
Give Back Bingo Promotions
As well as sharing bingo rooms, Give Back also shares quite a few promotions with it's sister sites. These did used to be quite extensive and include Win-Back Wednesday, £500 Saturday Special and Bonus Booster. However the owners of this group of sites have dropped many of their exciting games. The only real highlight, other than the above jackpots, is a Game Of The Month promotion. A VIP scheme exists although it's unclear how active this really is now. Traverse the levels to earn free bingo, spins and birthday bonuses.
The main exclusive element at Give Back Bingo does however lie in it's donation to charity. Each month Give Back selects one worthy cause and donates a sum of money to it on behalf of the community. Macmillan Cancer, Cystic Fibrosis Trust, Paws, Brooke and Farm Animal Sanctuary all were supported by GBB in recent times. How much is donated is a bit of a mystery. ON some posts we've seen that it's 1% of total profits. We've also seen a total of £883 donated to Save The Elephants in February 2019. Whilst we admire this aspect of GBB's online presence we would like to see more information on payments and amounts to charity.
We've always been big fans of Daub brands such as Kitty Bingo, Spin And Win and Lucky Pants. Give Back is no different as it basically does the same as it's sister brands. We like the fact that they're different to the usual suspects that use the likes of Dragonfish, Jumpman and Cozy Games. However this group of sites seem to be struggling with bingo. The number of bingo rooms has been reduced as have the special games. This seems to have resulted in less players too.
The charity aspect of the site is an added bonus. However from a player perspective we don't see it as a sufficient enough hook. Sites like Mecca and Gala support charities regularly and - in fairness - offer players a lot more. We also find the lack of updates about their donations a worry. This kind of information is important. It's not because we don't trust Give Back to make a donation but other charity bingo sites have in the past been less than transparent. It's great they're doing their bit for "charidee mate" but that shouldn't mean poor offerings to players and lack of updates either.
