Glossy Bingo Review

Broadway Gaming has been making it clear for quite some time that as far as they’re concerned, more is better. Rather than focusing on just one or two all-encompassing bingo sites, they prefer to have no less than FIVE of them up and running. Which is fine, just as long as each of them has its own unique charms, selling points and place on the market. In the case of Rehab Bingo, all boxes ticked. In the case of Dotty Bingo, not so much. So how does Glossy Bingo score when put through the same tests? Read on and Casino Papa will share all!


As a Microgaming bingo site, Glossy Bingo serves up more slots than quite a few dedicated casino sites manage to. There were 250+ available at the time we carried out our tests, which has the potential to be a blessing and a curse at the same time. If the slots are balanced with equal focus on epic bingo, great. But if there’s too much effort focused on slots, the bingo suffers as a result. The question being – which way does the balance tip with Glossy Bingo?


Site Summary

Well, first of all it’s fair to say that Glossy Bingo doesn’t disappoint in terms of bingo variety, with a solid seven themed rooms to choose from. Broadway, Venice Beach. Beverly Hills – you get the idea. And just in case you needed the glitzy-glam theme to be any more solidified, the online chat alongside the games is almost always steered toward TV shows and celebrity gossip. If that’s your bag, you’ll be well at home here. We carried out our tests on weekdays during the mid-evening, at which time there were games starting up every three minutes and around 50 people in each bingo room. We’re reliably informed though that it gets massively busy around lunch-time and also hits a peak by way of player numbers mid-morning too.

Microgaming bingo sites have their critics, but it’s worth remembering that it was MG’s bingo software that paid out the biggest jackpot in the history of online bingo – £5.88 million to one lucky winner. Suffice to say, not to be written off due to personal preference! Speaking of Microgaming, the collection of slots on offer at Glossy Bingo is massive and features everything you’d expect to find at a top-quality online casino.

If you make your choices based on bonuses, Glossy Bingo offers new players a whopping 400% top-up on their first deposit. You pay in £10 and you get £50 in your account to play with. Wagering requirements are set at 5X, which is a wee bit too far over the usual average of 3X. There are also 100%, 200% and 300% bonuses on your second, third and fourth deposits respectively.

On a slightly more positive note, pretty much every day of the week brings a new opportunity to score big with one of several jackpot games on offer. There’s the Breakfast Bonanza with £50 prizes available, the £600 Lunchtime Fever prize pot, a Daily £500 Guaranteed Jackpot and even a £5,000 Major Progressive Jackpot. Once a month, the Big £10,000 Jackpot Game delivers the thrills in spades. And on top of all this, most bingo rooms feature the same BOGOF offer – buy six, get another six free!

Deposits are processed instantly, though withdrawals can feel a little sluggish with processing times of up to seven days. We put the mobile version of the site through its paces and found it to be good enough – nothing to write home about, but good. The customer care team by contrast proved to be no less than outstanding, with 24/7 live chat support available. No contact telephone number remains a bit of a bummer, mind.

Topped off with plenty of free play and the fact that the most expensive tickets at Glossy Bingo cost just 20p, you’ve got yourself a solid enough bingo site that’s ideal for those who don’t exactly consider themselves to be high-rollers.

Best Features

To us, the very best thing about Glossy Bingo is the way in which there’s always something special going on, whatever day of the week you choose to play. While the welcome bonus isn’t great, the daily and on-going competitions do go some way toward making up for it. Busy rooms at all times are also a huge plus point for these guys.


While Glossy Bingo has all the makings of a real contender in some areas, it also lets itself down in others. The regular jackpots and daily competitions are great, busy bingo rooms are a must and a simple site to work with all score points. However, OTT wagering requirements, no customer service telephone number and painfully long withdrawal times could all stand to be improved.


  • Bonus wagering requirements of 5X too high
  • No customer service telephone number
  • Withdrawal times of up to seven days a little sluggish


  • Simple, uncluttered and attractive site layout
  • Busy bingo rooms and plenty of action at all times
  • A good range of different bingo types available
  • Great competitions and jackpot games on an on-going basis
  • Excellent customer service available 24/7
  • Solid mobile experience across most popular platforms
