Lucky Cow Bingo Review
Lucky Cow Bingo arrived on the scene in 2015. It originally launched on the Wheel Of Slots Network. However it made the transition to the upgraded 15 Network, also powered by Jumpman Gaming, in 2018. This upgrade benefited the brand as it was named Best Jumpman Gaming Bingo site in the Which Bingo Awards 2018. It describes itself as the luckiest online bingo site in The UK which is quite a bold claim. If you're feeling lucky then you might want to check out the bingo games and slots are on offer. But why not check out our review first!
Lucky Cow Bingo most certainly is a lucky brand. It's one of the few that seems to have managed to avoid UKGC's cartoon rulings with respect to it's logo. The site itself is dominated by a green grassy background and a bunch of small cartoon cows. A guy dressed in a cow onesie dominates the welcome offer area of the homepage. It does seem strange to have a guy in a cow suit when cows are female! Anyway it's nice to see a bingo brand using men on their site rather than the usual ladies. Lucky Cow is accessible on mobile, tablet and desktop.
Lucky Cow Bingo Welcome Offer
The welcome offer for new players is the main incentive to sign-up with Lucky Cow Bingo. As with other 15 Network brands a £10 deposit generates an opportunity to spin the Mega Reel for the chance to win a bonus. Register, login and make a deposit to spin the Mega Reel. This spin could win you anything from nothing up to 500 spins on popular slots such as Starburst or Fluffy Favourites. Terms apply and these include a x65 wagering requirement.
The bingo area of Lucky Cow has had a massive overhaul in 2020. The Jumpman powered rooms such as Lucky Stars and Pay Day Jackpot have been dropped for Pragmatic Play's rooms and Bingo Millions. This now means players have access to 75 ball, 80 ball and 90 ball rooms such as Boombox, Clockwork and Stars N Stripes. These have recently been joined by Pragmatic Play's speedy mobile game, Bingo Blast. As of April 2020 only Bingo Millions 90 Ball is available but there are instant win versions of the 75 and 80 ball games.
Lucky Cow Bingo Promotions
Slots players will find plenty of games to enjoy at Lucky Cow. The site boasts over 600 different slots from various providers such as Red Tiger, Pragmatic Play, Blueprint Gaming and Playson. Top slots include Starburst, Rainbow Riches, Fluffy Favourites, Great Rhino, Irish Luck and Aloha Cluster Pays. These slots have been joined by live casino games such as blackjack and roulette. A whole bundle of progressive slots make up an impressive range.
Less impressive are the promotions at Lucky Cow Bingo. These are limited to those provided by the 15 Network. These include cashback for regulars and newbies, Happy Hour every Wednesday, and spins of The Turbo Wheel on deposits of £100 or more. Trophies can be won as part of a gamefication element of the site. You will find occasional tournaments and prize draws run by slot providers plus in bingo there are special jackpot rooms. Lucky Cow does have a social media presence but their feeds are just full of sporadic inspirational memes.
In our last update of Lucky Cow we said that "if you're looking to play bingo then you may be disappointed" and that "there are not enough decent bingo games or rooms to encourage bingo players to wager". This has now thankfully changed although we do wonder whether the changes are too little too late. Most certainly players don't seem interested in the 75 ball and 80 ball offerings. It's also worth noting that these rooms cover many more sites so Jumpman need to do more to reinvigorate bingo play.
There is a good selection of slots and this is the only real positive when it comes to the Jumpman platform, not just Lucky Cow. However if you like slots then there's a multitude of other brands to try. Player depositing and withdrawal terms at these sites are mostly reasonable but the x65 wagering on the bonuses is quite hefty. Additionally all withdrawals incur a £2.50 admin fee. Lucky Cow has tried to differentiate itself from it's sister sites with a player guide and blog, although the latter is now well out of date.
