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 continues to offer bingo and slots to players.
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 (maximum bonus £50). Further bonuses of 100% are offered on both the second and third deposit. Note that the bonus carries a x20 wagering requirement on the sum of the deposit & bonus. This is quite high if you're signing up to use the bonus on bingo games only.
When we last reviewed Lucky Pants Bingo we commented that it had "lots of bingo rooms with 75 and 90 ball games". Sadly times have changed and the number of rooms has declined. The main rooms are Penny Paradise, Naughty 90 and Saucy 75. The rooms are not at all busy and it makes you wonder what has happened! Lucky Pants also used to host a wide range of daily jackpot games and prize games. These too have all but gone. Instead there's a Weekly £1000 jackpot and a Monthly £10K Must Go. Note that all these rooms are shared with Kitty Bingo, Give Back and Bingo Extra.
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 every Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays too. The site suggests there's free bingo but we can't see The Rewards Room in the schedule.
However, 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 of x3 (bingo) and x20 (games) will apply to any rewards won playing the game.
We've always been big fans of Kitty Bingo and Lucky Pants Bingo but oh dear what has happened to them? In our original view of Lucky Pants we said that it was "definitely worth a visit". Now we're not so sure. The bingo rooms are empty, the free bingo gone and the promotions watered down considerably. Whilst sites like Buzz, Mecca, Gala, Foxy, Jackpotjoy and Tombola are going forward it's safe to suggest that Lucky Pants are seriously going down. Something needs to be done to pull themselves back-up.
It isn't all bad news. Slot players have access to 1000s of top games such as Starburst, Fluffy Mega Jackpot, Amazing Heroes and more. There are progressive bingo jackpots too plus the £1000 and £10K bingo games. The Stranger Thongs bonus game is a nice addition too as is the Lucky Loot prize draw. However it's hard to getaway from the fact the bingo rooms are so quiet. In many respects it does feel that Lucky Pants has opted to become more of a destination for slot players. The x20 term on the welcome bonus most certainly isn't attractive if you're heading there for bingo.
