Health Bingo Review
After a very short stint on the Bede Gaming platform, The Health Lottery's bingo site shut down quickly and was replaced with Health Games. The latter emerged on the Gaming Realms platform that powers the likes of Slingo.com, Spin Genie and Pocket Fruity. Our review below is for the original Health Bingo and is left for reference only.
Health Bingo launched in 2014 and is the sister site to the more well known Health Lottery. Rather than opt to use a more well known gaming platform, Health Bingo decided to go with Bede Gaming, the same software as used by the likes of Crown and Bingo Godz. The difference between Health and those brands is that some of the profits made are set aside for good causes.
Health Bingo is a decent looking site. It features the latest bingo games, shows recent winners and there's a selection of top slots on display too. Across the top of the site you'll see flash displays for the site's latest promotions and welcome offers! The site is mobile and tablet friendly, although the main desktop site isn't responsive.
New players to Health Bingo are welcomed with a 200% first deposit bonus up to £150. Wagering terms do apply and these are set at x4. Health do make it clear that you can turn down the welcome bonus offer, which is a plus point. There's also free bingo available which we think you can access as a non-depositor. Terms apply to any wins collated in the free room.
Promotions & Slots
As well as a free bingo room you'll also find 75 ball and 90 ball games, speed bingo and jackpots. The jackpots include a £500 Saturday Night Spectacular and a £1000 Pot Of Gold game. Considering that these are networked with other brands on the Bede Gaming platform - and also some of those brands are well established - the prizes perhaps aren't as big as you'd expect. Most certainly they don't compare to those offered on Virtue Fusion and Gamesys for example.
So why play at a site like Health Bingo? Well there's no shortage of promotions, albeit they're mainly bonus based. For example there's a 50% reload on all deposits, daily free bingo and for slot players a daily casino bonus. Since we started visiting Health Bingo we have noticed that slots do now get a much higher billing. For example at time of writing there was another free spins giveaway promo and a bonus back challenge which mainly involved slot play.
We do like the fact that Health Bingo will be donating to good causes, however we're never sure if that's a real USP. Tickety Boo Games for example didn't make an impact on the bingo world despite aiming to raise money for Marie Curie. That aside, Health does offer plenty for visitors but is it enough to tempt them away from the likes of Foxy, Tombola and Gala? We're not so sure and it wouldn't be a surprise to see Health Bingo look towards other networks in the future.
