Play Betfair Bingo Review & Despoit Bonus

The fact that there are literally hundreds of different online bingo sites to choose from these days is both a blessing and a curse at the same time. It’s never been easier to find yourself some seriously enjoyable action, but at the same time, there might always be something better out there to be found. More often than not, the safest bet is to stick with the biggest and most reputable names in the business with strong track records and plenty of positive feedback. In the case of Betfair Bingo, all such boxes are ticked in spades. But even with such a long and illustrious history, does this necessarily mean this Betfair Bingo review show it’s as good as it gets? Join Casino Papa for a closer look!

Overview
Betfair Bingo has grown into a pretty enormous bingo site since first going live in 2013. It is routinely shortlisted for a wide variety of annual awards and Betfair makes the bold claim that they have no less than 4 million active customers. Still, these are the kinds of numbers and statistics that don’t necessarily add up to a great deal in the real world, so what does Betfair Bingo offer that goes above and beyond the norm?

Site Summary
First and foremost, we once again have to ask exactly why bingo sites like Betfair Bingo choose to dedicate the vast majority of its primary homepage to online slots. Quite literally, the entire first screen is promoting the latest and most popular slots available – you have to scroll beyond them to get to the bingo. Whatever the reason, this immediately paints a picture of a website that doesn’t take bingo as seriously as its other gaming offerings. Whether or not this is actually the case, it still isn’t a fantastic first impression.

On the plus side, the table below the slot promotions features a concise yet comprehensive list of all the upcoming bingo action. This in turn makes it easy to dive straight into the games of your choosing, without having to search too far to find them. Given the fact that this is a company with such an apparently enormous list of customers, it was a little surprising to see just how large the gaps were between the games during our tests. Admittedly, we prefer to carry out tests during off peak hours to gauge popularity and player numbers – in this instance there were quite a few gaps in the region of 30-mins to 1-hour between the games taking place.

In terms of UK bingo welcome bonuses, the folks behind Betfair Bingo are offering new customers a generous £10 freebie, which is credited upon depositing and subsequently wagering £10 or more. Wagering requirements are set at 4X which is somewhere toward the higher end of the scale, but isn’t entirely unreasonable.  In addition to the welcome bonus, there were also somewhere in the region of 22 additional promotions and special deals to check out. Value Nights stand out as perhaps the best examples of all, which include Penny Mondays, Triple Tuesdays and a solid scattering of BOGOF deals Penny bingo is a big deal at Betfair Bingo and there is also a Newbie Room for those just getting started.  The promotions are split into separate sections for each day of the week, though in most instances are exactly the same from one to the next.

There’s really nothing to be taken away from the quality of the action itself or the performance of the Betfair Bingo website. Everything is put together quite beautifully and for those looking to gain on the go, the experience via Android and iOS devices is equally outstanding. The same can also be said for customer service standards, with a genuinely impressive team of professionals available on a 24/7 basis. Account security is top-notch and payments in both directions are extremely smooth and rapid.

Rounding things off with a couple of additional bug bears, none of the games (including the slots available) on offer can be tried out without first opening an account. Worse still, opening an account and getting active means having to deposit money – there’s absolutely nothing on the cards whatsoever if you aren’t willing to hand over some cash.

Best Features
There are plenty of positives to be found in Betfair Bingo and although we can’t say we weren’t impressed with much of what was on offer. We loved the website as a whole, a significant range of games are on offer and there are plenty of promotions to check out each and every day. There’s also the peace of mind that comes with working with one of the biggest names in the business.

Conclusion
Bringing it all together, we’d be lying if we said that the clear focus on slot gaming from the very first moment didn’t leave something of a sour taste in our mouths as BINGO users. It’s common for additional gaming assets to be advertised, but in this instance it is almost as if they are trying to push you somewhere else and away from the bingo itself. Other than this, it’s never great to see one of the biggest sites making it compulsory to deposit funds before being able to get started – even with free gaming. Still, if these are the kinds of things that don’t bother you, there’s no denying that the actual gaming action itself and the overall service package at Betfair Bingo are both solid enough.

Cons

  • Introductory bonuses are not fantastic
  • Funds must be deposited to activate accounts
  • No free play whatsoever without joining up
  • Clear focus on the other types of games available (slots etc.)
  • Sometimes quite significant gaps between games

  • Plenty of free and 1p bingo action at most times
  • An enormous variety of promotions and special deals
  • Excellent customer service standards on a 24/7basis
  • A great mobile site for gaming on the go
