Glossy Bingo Review
Updated On Wednesday 19th April 2017
New Player Offer: 250% Bonus
Microgaming wagering terms and conditions will apply
Glossy Bingo launched in February 2013 and is a sister site of Butlers Bingo. The site originally had a unique magazine style look - along the lines of tabloid magazines such as Take A Break, OK Magazine or Chat. Among the homepage headlines were classics such as 'woman, 56, reunited with childhood sweetheart in bingo room'. Thankfully they've made a few changes since then.
The big headline now at Glossy Bingo is that it's the home of a £1.2million progressive jackpot winner! Apart from that though there's not much else on the homepage other than a login box, a few links to slots and the new player promo offer. Glossy doesn't offer a no deposit bonus but you can collect a 250% bonus when you make a first deposit of £10. Glossy Bingo has a x5 wagering term for bingo and a x40 term for casino bonuses.
The Big £10K
On the site, powered by Microgaming, you will find a 75 ball room and 4 90 ball rooms plus daily, weekly and monthly specials. The speicals include The Big £10K jackpot that runs at the end of every month, a bingo progressive jackpot, Morning £100 games and a £500 Daily Triple. It should be noted that these are the same games that you would find over at Butlers Bingo. That's not a bad thing, but we'd like to see some special games specifically for players of either site.
Back in 2013, Glenda was the host of Glossy Bingo and looked after the VIP scheme. Sadly Glenda has vanished but the VIP program does remain intact. You earn 1 point for every £10 you spend on bingo. For every 500 points you earn you'll get a £5 bonus. In real terms this means you'll get a free fiver for every £5000 you spend on Glossy Bingo. In that respect the gloss is definitely missing from this "great deal"!
Major Millions Winner
For more community interaction you really need to follow Glossy's Facebook page. There are regular quizzes, prize draws and updates about what's happening at the site. You can also follow them via Twitter but you'll only be joining just over 200 fellow fans which seems quite low for such a long established brand.
By the way, the £1.2million winner came via the slots on Glossy Bingo. Mandy from Scotland won this amazing cash prize back in 2016. Among the popular slots at Glossy are Immortal Romance, Pollen Party and Major Millions, the slot which turned Mandy into a millionaire on one spin.
Although Glossy can boast a big winner, the site hasn't really changed much since our original review. The site offers the same promotions and rarely, if ever, offers anything exclusive in terms of prize games, tournaments etc. The bingo and slots that are on offer are good and the big winner is a nice angle to feature. However, there's little else to make this site shine brighter than many of it's competitors.
