Lucky Pants Bingo Review
Lucky Pants Bingo was the second brand from the people who launched Kitty Bingo. It arrived in 2013 with a big media campaign, both online and offline. In fact over £1million was spent on TV, radio and web promotion. It's safe to say we were sceptical about the longevity of a brand called Lucky Pants. However, it's survived and as of October 2020 has had a massive boost with a relaunch on the Virtue Fusion platform.
When it first launched Lucky Pants was a fun looking brand. It featured bingo balls wearing underpants and hosted a variety of characters. Post UKGC rulings on making gambling a better industry, Lucky Pants is now a lot more adult following a 2019 makeover. The cartoon imagery has gone and the site is quite straitlaced in shades of purple. A lot of the humour that made Lucky Pants stand apart from so many other brands has sadly gone too. This is a real shame but there's at least the bingo to enjoy!
Lucky Pants Welcome Offer
When Lucky Pants Bingo first launched new players received a no deposit bonus. This no deposit bonus lasted in various guises right up until 2019. These days newbies who register, login and deposit a minimum of £10 can receive a 200% first deposit bonus. This bonus is split £15 for bingo and £5 for games. Note that the bingo bonus can be used on any games except for the BOB and Britain's Got Talent rooms. Wagering terms of x4 and x25 apply to the bonuses respectively.
When we last reviewed Lucky Pants Bingo we were disappointed to see just a couple of rooms and few players. We did wonder about the future of the site but we're pleased to see that it has moved platform as opposed to integrating Pragmatic Play. As of October 2020 Lucky Pants has now moved to the Virtue Fusion platform. This is good news for players who now have access to a bigger range of games including Emoji Bingo, Rainbow Riches Bingo, BOB, Speed Bingo, Pattern Games and Deal Or No Deal Bingo. Many of these rooms are shared with Mecca to create bigger jackpots and busier games.
Lucky Pants Promotions
Lucky Pants Bingo used to be a "go to" destination when it came to regular promotions. There were regular prize games for shopping vouchers, weekly giveaways and plenty of jackpots. The site even offered lifelong cashback up to 15% depending on your VIP level. This has all gone too but there are still offers to consider. In Lucky Loot players can win a prize in a monthly prize draw. Entry is earnt by opting in to Lucky Pants promos! Bargain bingo fans can enjoy cheap games throughout the day in the Penny Paradise room whilst we're sure they'll be free bingo on occasions as there is at Mecca.
Despite the platform change, players still can earn rewards with Lucky Pants' free board game. It's called Stranger Thongs (formerly Pants In The Air) and gives you the chance to win rewards like bonuses, cash and spins on selected slots. Qualifying players can roll the dice daily to move the counter round the board. Collect three of the same symbol to win! In order to qualify to play Stranger Thongs you need to have wagered £10 in the past 7 days at Lucky Pants Bingo. Wagering terms will apply to any rewards won playing the game.
Slot players have access to plenty of top games such as Starburst, Fluffy Mega Jackpot, Galactic Girls, Gonzo's Quest, Fire Joker, Clover Rollover 2, Beat The Bobbies, Cash Scoop and even a Lucky Pants exclusive slot. These are joined by a number of Slingo titles and a few table games including Live Monopoly and Dreamcatcher. Surprisingly there aren't many roulette and black variants here and it does seem that 'Pants is now focussed on the bingo and slots sector.
We can't express how pleased we are to see Lucky Pants Bingo relaunch on Virtue Fusion. The old rooms were empty and something needed to be done to fix it. Our concern was that it'd either move to a platform like Jumpman or integrate Pragmatic Play. Not bad things but it'd have been the end of the brand. By switching to a bigger platform like Virtue Fusion Lucky Pants now has a chance to grow again. As long as it retains it's sense of fun and a few exclusives we think players will enjoy using this site.
