Volcano Bingo Review
Erupting on to Jumpman's Wheel Of Slots Network back in March 2017 was Volcano Bingo. Due to the rise of Jumpman Slots and evolution of the 15 Network, The WSN was closed and Volcano relaunched on the latter stable - also powered by Jumpman. Volcano describes itself as "the web's hottest bingo site" where you can find red hot bingo rooms, sizzling slots, exclusive promos and special offers. But does this bingo brand really offer players something to get fired up about?
In it's early days Volcano Bingo showed off a cartoon volcano spewing out bingo balls. This has now been replaced with a more simple and stylish representation. A volcano is center stage with hot firey lava pouring down into the featured slots. The eruption is represented by the Mega Wheel that's a standard feature at most Jumpman powered sites. The site has been designed to be mobile friendly and therefore it's accessible on mobile, tablet and desktop. No apps are required to play Volcano Bingo on the move.
Volcano Bingo Welcome Offer
Join Volcano Bingo as a new player and you'll receive a spin of the Mega Wheel when you deposit £10 or more. Note that this site does not offer any bingo bonuses. All wagering in the bingo rooms is cash only! Spinning the Mega Wheel gives you the chance to win up to 500 spins on slots like Starburst and Fluffy Favourites. On a spin you could also win Amazon vouchers or nothing at all. Wagering terms apply including a x65 requirement. Further spins of the Mega Wheel are available when you deposit £20+.
Login to the lobby area of Volcano Bingo to find a selection of bingo rooms and instant win games. In February 2020 Jumpman closed their own rooms such as Lucky Stars and Pay Day Jackpot. These have now been replaced by Pragmatic Play's bingo games. This means Volcano can now offer 75 ball, 80 ball and 90 ball games in rooms such as Boombox, Stars N Stripes and The Jackpot Room. Tickets on average cost around 10p per game but we did find a 1p game in Clock Work that gives you the chance to win a share of £15.
Volcano Bingo Promotions
Promotions wise Volcano relies on the network offerings. These include Daily Cashback and 31 Days of Double Cashback for new players. All new players will automatically qualify for at least 1% Daily Cashback but note that it must be claimed as it won't be awarded. Other promos include Happy Hours and Winner Winner Chicken Dinner. The latter rewards the player with the highest slot win with a £50 Just Eat Voucher. Occasionally there are slot tournaments although these are usually run by game providers such as Red Tiger or Yggdrasil.
Jumpman bingo brands are much more slot orientated and it's perhaps no surprise that the many of the promotions mentioned above are aimed at slot players. Popular games include Riviera Star, Mystery Reels, Starburst, Rainbow Riches, Frishin Frenzy, Chilli Heat, Wolf Gold, Great Rhino and Megaways titles. Progressive jackpot slots, powered by Eyecon Games, are joined by a collection of casino games including blackjack. Live casino games are supposedly on their way to the Jumpman platform.
When it first launched we described Volcano Bingo as a "slow burner" with potential. It offered some exclusives and had an active social media presence. Unfortunately as The WSN didn't really take off and Jumpman's bingo offering has stalled Volcano Bingo doesn't seem to have ignited. Like many of it's sister brands on the 15 Network the bingo elements are just not lighting up the sky or firing on any cylinders. The arrival of Bingo Millions is a plus but more is required. One point worthy of note is that all withdrawals now incur a £2.50 admin fee.
If you're a slots player then you will be warmed by what's on offer at Volcano Bingo. The welcome offer and pretty much all the promos are aimed at reel players. Additional bonuses can be won via trophies and other promotions. There are plenty of top games including the increasingly popular Megaways titles. The problem is that Volcano has a bingo moniker. It wants to be red hot, but it's not even lukewarm and you may find it's bingo offerings leave you ice cold.
