William Hill Bingo Review
William Hill are more well known as a bookmaker. However like fellow bookies they've ventured into online bingo. When they first launched we weren't that impressed. However over time William Hill have become a firm favourite with respect to what they offer bingo players. Using the Virtue Fusion/Playtech platform visitors will find an exciting range of bingo rooms, themed games and slots. You will also find various promotions such as The Bonus Drop as well as sportsbook, casino and scratchcards.
The William Hill Bingo site is simple but very colourful in various pastel shades. Featured bingo rooms and slots can be seen on the homepage whilst the promotions are highlighted at the top of the screen. What we like about William Hill is that they show all their bingo rooms and the schedule. Too many bingo brands these days don't even show their rooms and focus on slots only. The site is accessible on desktop, tablet and mobile. There is an Apple app for William Hill Bingo but this hasn't been updated since 2018. However you don't need an app to play on Apple or Android devices.
William Hill Welcome Offer
The William Hill new player bonus has chopped and changed over the years. They have in the past had no deposit bonus offers and at one point ditched their welcome offer completely. Today new players who register, login, deposit and wager £5 receive a £25 bonus (500% bonus). The offer expires in 14 days from chat name registration and the £5 must be spent in selected bingo rooms. These include Bingo Bowl, BOGOF, Community Room and Day At The Race. Wagering terms apply and this is set as a x4 requirement. Note that this applies to the bonus amount and not the first deposit amount.
Like many other Virtue Fusion sites there's an abundance of choice when it comes to Bingo Rooms. The majority are 75 and 90 ball but these are joined by exciting variations. Login to the lobby to discover Age Of The Gods, Deal Or No Deal, Fluffy Favourites, Cash Cube, Rainbow Riches, Grease and the recently launched 52 ball Housey. William Hill also boast exclusive rooms. Bingo Bowl is a 50 ball game whilst Day At The Races is 40 ball. Penny bingo players can find plenty of cheap bingo games in Bargain Basement although it does seem that the New Arrivals Lounge has closed. This free room was open for 8 days and accessible after depositing and wagering £10.
William Hill Bingo Promotions
William Hill runs a number of different bingo promotions. Typically you will find free bingo (superbooks), 1TG specials, bargain games, BOGOFs and various prize draws. Some of these offers are used to highlight the special rooms such as Housey, Grease and Fluffy Favourites Bingo. In the past we have seen William Hill give bingo players the chance to win big prizes, including cars. It's safe to say that these kind of promotions aren't as frequent. Instead William Hill tends to focus on offer such as The Bonus Spin. This is a daily no deposit required free game that gives you the chance to win slot spins. Wagering terms apply on wins from those spins.
Slots naturally form an important element of the game options you can find at William Hill. Popular games include Fluffy Favourites, Britain's Got Talent Superstar, Wild Gambler, Clover Rollover, Mafia Millions and Big Top Tombola. These are joined by Slingo games, Megaways and progressive jackpot games. Click under Casino and Vegas to find more slots or select Live Casino for table games. Live game shows such as Dream Catcher, Deal Or No Deal and Monopoly Live are also available.
There's a lot to like about William Hill Bingo. The variety of games are on offer is good and covers 40, 50, 52, 75, 80 and 90 ball. In fact you'll find over 24 different room choices. The Bargain Basement is great for cheap games but these aren't limited to just this room. The exclusive bingo variants like Day At The Races and Bingo Bowl are fun although perhaps not as attractive as similar games at Gala and Mecca. The loss of the newbies room is disappointing though and the wagering terms on the welcome bonus need to be noted.
Overall though it's hard for us to think of anything negative to say about William Hill Bingo. It has everything we think a player should enjoy and everything a bingo brand should offer. Perhaps because it's a bookmakers site it doesn't get the attention that Foxy, Tombola and Jackpotjoy receive, but it should do... so do take a look. And if you're a fan of slots it's worth a daily visit simply to play The Bonus Drop. Note that this offer ends in March 2020 but we suspect it may continue beyond that.
