Glossy Bingo Review
Glossy Bingo launched in February 2013 and is a sister site of Butlers Bingo. The site originally had a unique magazine style look - along the lines of tabloid magazines such as Take A Break, OK Magazine or Chat. Among the homepage headlines were classics such as 'woman, 56, reunited with childhood sweetheart in bingo room'. Thankfully they've made a few changes since then.
Glossy Bingo has recently (2019) had a makeover but before that it boasted as being the home of a £1.2million progressive jackpot winner. This claim has been consigned to history and the new site looks quite decent. Three cartoon style bingo players - two of whom look like they're in the same jumper - welcome you to the site. Glossy doesn't offer a no deposit bonus but you can collect a 100% bonus when you make a first deposit of £10. Glossy Bingo has a x50 wagering term.
Play Glossy Bingo
There are six main rooms at Glossy, which is powered by Microgaming. The rooms include the Broadway Room, Friendship, Sapphire, Speed Bingo, Spinner Room and Rainbow Room. The rooms are reasonably busy but this is because Glossy shares it's games with Rosy, Butlers and Dotty. Ticket prices tend to be on average 10p to 20p - slightly higher than other platforms.
Back in 2013, Glenda was the host of Glossy Bingo and looked after the VIP scheme. Sadly Glenda has vanished but the VIP program does remain intact. You earn 1 point for every £10 you spend on bingo. For every 500 points you earn you'll get a £5 bonus. In real terms this means you'll get a free fiver for every £5000 you spend on Glossy Bingo. In that respect the gloss is definitely missing from these glossy goodies.
Glossy Bingo Slots
Community interaction used to be on Glossy's Facebook page. On there they hosted regular offers, bonuses and quizzes. That all came to halt in July 2018 - probably going the same way as the Glossy Bingo affiliate links that also disappeared around the same time. For this reason we're unable to deliver you to Glossy but instead will redirect you to another option.
By the way, the £1.2million winner came via the slots on Glossy Bingo. Mandy from Scotland won this amazing cash prize back in 2016. Among the popular slots at Glossy are Immortal Romance, Pollen Party and Major Millions, the slot which turned Mandy into a millionaire on one spin. Other jackpot slots available include Mega Moolah, Fruit Fiesta and Cash Splash. The slots and progressives are joined by table games and video poker.
Although Glossy can boast a big winner, the site hasn't really changed much since over the years. Whilst it now looks considerably better there's nothing here that you won't find on Butlers Bingo. The bingo and slots that are on offer are good although the wagering terms are off putting. The lack of social media presence and community is also a disappointment.
On a positive note we do like the new look site. It most certainly looks the best of the Broadway stable of brands (Butlers, Rosy and Dotty).
