mFortune Bingo Review
Mobile bingo is now the norm for many players and many of the big brands are developing their products to ensure that they're all aboard this bandwagon. However, one brand has been at the forefront of mobile gaming for some time, especially with respect to slots. However they also have a bingo product that offers progressive jackpots and cash prizes. mFortune Bingo gives you the chance to enjoy 90 ball bingo games in a variety of rooms. To get you started new players are offered a no deposit bonus.
The mFortune Casino site is big bold and colourful. It's dominated by featured slots and the latest features. Under the bingo tab you'll find limited information as it only shows latest slot jackpots and live winners. Click through though and you'll get through to another information page. This isn't that attractive either, but at least you can login to play and access one of the 11 available bingo rooms. These rooms are like the homepage - bright and colourful. Despite being designed for mobile play, desktop players can enjoy mFortune Bingo.

There are a number of different bingo rooms to choose from at mFortune Bingo. These include Diamond, Pearl, Sapphire and Emerald. Each is a 90 ball room and there's usually 30/40 players online at any one time. Full house jackpots when we visited were a reasonable £20 so you're not playing for peanuts. Progressive jackpots are also available to be won! Game cards cost around 10p/25p depending which room you choose to play in. Gameplay is smooth although you do have to have your mobile in the landscape position. You need to double tap the cards or chat to make them bigger - which is ok.

One thing that we'd love to see is a bit more pizazz in the game play. There are no bingo calls and it's very quick to miss who has won on one line, two lines and a full house. The cards also show x to go for the full house so you're not always sure how close to winning one line or two lines you may be! Note that to win the progressive prizes, you will need to mark off all 15 numbers on a single ticket, in 35 numbers or less. We'd like to know if anyone has actually won any of the jackpots.
Promotions can be found under "Offers & Bonuses" at mFortune. The main offers are the welcome bonuses that are outlined above, £5 bonus when you refer a friend to the site, weekly bingo prize draws and a Game Of The Month bonus. Players are recommended to check out mFortune's social media for more promotions, although these tend to be mainly small prize draws to win a bonus. They are worth a look though because entry numbers tend to be limited so you have a good chance of winning.
As you're playing bingo by mobile you can also pay via your phone bill. Just select your chosen payment option via the lobby. Our advice is keep tabs of your spending as you don't want to be faced with a hefty bill at the end of the month. Other depositing options including Ukash and debit card. Note that you will receive text messages from mFortune once you've signed up. You can stop them but annoyingly you have to phone them to request it.
Overall we're quite impressed with mFortune Bingo. It provides an alternative to players who might be fed up with the usual diet of Dragonfish and Virtue Fusion options. The no deposit bonus is very useful to see whether the game play at mFortune suits you although you can still play on PC/laptop if mobile bingo isn't for you. One other aspect of mFortune we like is that whilst you can play side games/slots these are not overly in your face as you sometimes find with mainstream bingo apps.
