Glossy Bingo launched in January 2013 and immediately stood out from the crowd thanks to its distinctive homepage living up to its name.

Landing at Glossy Bingo you are transported into the realms of a glossy magazine cover page as its homepage, complete with Victoria Beckham lookalike dominating the page. Whether this background will change on a monthly basis to retain the mood of a magazine remains to be seen.

The site operates on Microgaming bingo and gaming software which means that the gameplay is second to none and there is a good range of jackpots and other games to take advantage of.
 

Generous Welcome Bonus

It's a simple and straightforward registration process, but card details are required and the site accepts Paysafecards, Ukash, Skrill and Neteller payments in addition to credit and debit cards.

New players can claim a 400% first deposit bonus on amounts from £10 to £25, but the great deals don't end there. Players that deposit a second time will get a 100% bonus, the third time its worth 200% and the fourth deposit is worth a further 300% bingo bonus.

Loyalty well rewarded

Having only been attending the Auditions up to depositing at Glossy Bingo , the first deposit makes players Rising Stars on the Glossy Walk of Fame. The level attained determines the future reload bonuses earned. When that fourth deposit bonus has been claimed the 'G-Team' review the account and award reload bonus from 50% to 75% based on activity to that point, as well as bestowing TV Star status.

Players are reviewed individually to move up the levels to Film Star and Superstar and more bonuses. One of the benefits of moving up the levels is the fact that free slot spins become available as well as a generous cashback scheme.

Loyalty Pays



Playing earns points as you would expect from any good bingo site and 500 points is worth £5. Every £10 spent on bingo or casino games is worth 1 point.

The 'G Team' are a friendly bunch made up of site hostess Glenda who is on hand to guide people round the site, together with Gabby, Gillian and Greg. Customers are the A listers at Glossy Bingo and nothing is too much trouble.

    I found this site to have very limited choice in bingo games and felt like I never came even close to winning when I played. Good variety of slots though and I was a lot luckier here winning a couple of hundred pounds, however the withdrawal process is endless, 5 days alone just to get through processing stage so you're looking at best part of 2 weeks before winnings hit your bank which is ridiculous and I ended up re playing it and losing. Don't fall for the free spin bonus either on here as any winnings are placed in bonus funds. Very disappointed with this site, but mainly because of lengthy withdrawal process.
  2. MAW25 says:
    This site is unbelievable! I have deposited £80 in cash & had £160 in Bonus, spent cash in slots which are very poor in payouts, lucky if you see bonus rounds! You are limited in bingo at £2.40 so you can't max on tics, you'll be very lucky to get a consolution prize for 1tg as you probably won't get past 3tg! In my opinion don't waste your time & money on this site as it is very boring indeed!!

    I'm not a fan of the bingo at Glossy, feel it is very limited. Games are expensive and not much choice. Have had no problems whatsoever withdrawing. Big downside is cash is always used first and if you withdraw cash you lose all bonus funds, but if you try to use up the bonus funds you have no cash left.This all seems a bit negative, but believe it or not, I'm completely hooked. Loving Piggy Fortunes, best game ever with tremendous graphics, such good fun. It takes a while and quite a few pounds to activate Big Bad Wolf Feature but well worth the wait. I deposited £10 and withdrew £100. Sorry about another negative, but withdrawals can be reversed in the next day or two so you wait a bit longer for your money and are so tempted to reverse the withdrawal when funds are low, like I did now to get another fix of Piggy Fortunes.

    Absolutely terrible. You deposit £10 at Glossy Bingo and they give you £50 bonus - GREAT!! not!! That bonus can only be used on 2 bingo games...all the rest are real cash play only. Not only that, but they limit how many tickets in those games you can buy if you are spending bonus money...and if you manage to have a win...after spending my £10 plus £30 of the bonus I finally had a win 86p woopy...then when you buy the next few tickets they took my 86p "real money" first!!
  5. loonybabe says:
    What they do not tell you at Glossy Bingo is that you can't withdraw anything until you have lost over £150.00. I am trying to withdraw £29.53 and they won't because I haven't "wagered" enough. This is promoting irresponsible gambling and I am horrified. Taken from their website: 7.2 Players will be required to complete an acceptable amount of gaming activity (defined as meeting the wagering requirements) on any cash deposited and BBz received, before being eligible to withdraw; 7.2.1 Wagering requirements are calculated at three (3) times your deposit(s) plus bonus(es) awarded. This requirement applies to your first four (4) deposits. Please note that any roulette, video poker or blackjack play are not included in wagering requirement calculations. For example: your first deposit of £10 gets you a £40 deposit bonus. This is a total of £50, you must now wager 3 times this (£150) before being eligible to withdraw.
    • TheMeerkat says:
      I have found ALL gaming sites are very transparent about their bonus money wagering requirements in their T&C pages. The moral is read the T&C before you sign up and try to roughly calculate what you need to wager from winnings to fulfill requirements in order to withdraw any profits. And remember nobody is obliged to accept bonus when offered. In that case you can play without the wagering requirements and have no withdrawal restrictions, other than the minimum allowed.

      Thank you for letting people know about this .....0/10 Glossy Bingo!
    • cmap says:
      I agree totally. I hadn't wagered £135. Its in the T+C's but not in their FAQs.
    • willsowls says:
      The Deals they offer you look good on first glance. But try to win and it's another matter - is difficult. Best avoid these deals! Been and tried and failed!!!!!
  6. Glossy bingo is a great site with great welcome offers. Easy to use, lovely roomies in all chat rooms. The chat hosts are the best and play chat games right throughout the day. The only downs side to glossy bingo is they give you a huge bonus, but restrict how many bingo tickets you can buy using bonus funds and usually less then the amount you need to get free cards in 75 ball room. Other then that all in all a great site i recommend giving it a try. It's surely going to be my new bingo home. 8/10 over all mark
  7. sianne says:
    Glossy bingo is just what it says. A fab name for a fab bingo and the hosts are amazing. There's fantastic chat games and for the first twenty four hours u get double points for any games played and chat games won. You can redeem your loyalty as u play, just press add to funds. And when u sign up and deposit just a fiver they give u another twenty five pounds. So all round it great.
  8. ooooermrs says:
    Good news is Glossy Bingo is paying out £500.00 but beware of charges - £6.00 for normal postage or £30 for courier to deliver your cheque??? Have never had to pay this before and find it to be excessive.
  9. ooooermrs says:
    Joined Glossy Bingo to play bingo, you get bbz as bonus when you deposit, when your cash is gone and you rely on bbz you cannot max on cards your limited to 24 and no chance of winning. I ended up playing slots in casino to just use up what I had and after using the free spins I ended up winning £180 which I tried to withdraw.....a fortnight later I have still not got the winnings....however by playing same slot game this is now up to £500. Each time I send proof of who I am the money is returned to my account. I do not get paper bills, do not drive and my passport has expired!! Yesterday I sent copies of marriage certificate, birth certificate and daughters birth certificate that shows my address - money was put back in my account. This morning I received a statement from Scottish Gas, am hoping they will pay out now and then I can close this account. Ha ha if they paid the original £180 I would have left it at that but now they owe me £500. The reason I was going to leave the site anyway is because if you deposit using 'mastercard' which is on my debit card from Clydesdale bank, they cannot pay winnings directly into your bank, you are paid by Cheque! I work 5 days a week out of town and its not convenient to be paid by cheque. They need to make this more obvious to players as I would not have joined had I known this. BTW the best bingo site I have been on that is fair and treats it players properly is JPJ!!

    I liked this site - got £25 free when I deposited £5 and 10 free spins on slots. Won a line with my BB and used it to play slots and which I went on to withdraw with no problem - will play again.
  11. Huge thumbs up for Glossy Bingo. Have just had word that they are giving me the £2750 that I won last week by cheque. Love this site - the people you speak to on the phone are friendly and helpful.
  12. Undecided for the now. I have won 2750 and have requested a withdrawal. I have sent in marriage licence, birth certificate, provisional licence, but have been told that i need a recent bill or bank statement, but as i don't have paper bills anymore i don't have them. I have sent lots of other things dated just 2 weeks ago, so here's hoping that is enough. If not it's a trip to the bank to ask for a statement to be sent out. Will keep everyone informed how it has went - here's hoping it will be a thumbs up.
    • ShoutBingo says:
      Good luck!
    • Thank you, all my paperwork approved, played all my playthrough amounts, just waiting on withdrawal to go through :)
    • Ms Bingo says:
      Try a council tax bill or just ask the bank or utility company for a paper statement
  13. bells says:
    Worst site I have ever been on. Send emails offering bonus then do not fulfill. With bonus funds you can only buy a certain amount of tickets, also you cannot play on a lot of the bingo games with bonus funds. I closed the account with 20bbz left in as site was so awful.
  14. Riz says:
    I don't know what times the other reviewers have been on Glossy Bingo, but get on there in the evening and it's buzzing! Good payouts, nice peeps. Slots aren't the best, but I'm there to play bingo. Well worth a look, it'll get a lot busier soon too...seen it happen enough times with other sites.
  15. BigHairyKev says:
    I've just joined Glossy Bingo. So far, only a few rooms. In fact, there was only one bingo room running when I was on it, but more open later in the day. Friendly staff and players make this website well worth more visits!
  16. fancy that says:
    Joined Glossy bingo with a great 400% bonus. Deposited 25 pounds got 100BBz as they call them. Loads of different slots on this site and wide range to choose from. Now the bingo, well not so good. 87 players and jackpot total 16 pounds to split with the 1 line 2 lines and full house. Did ask the CH how come all these players and the pots are so low - most of them playing withBBz she said, not the same as cash players. These BBz are worthless, not like on cassava sites where you can play any bingo game with bonus money. Even after you deposit on Glossy bingo if you don't play with your cash balance you are very restricted and can't play a lot of the bingo games with BBz. I played 100BBz and didn't win once. 400% deposit bonus. but it's like you haven't deposited and playing with free money. Not many bingo rooms to choose from. Had a look in 75 ball room - the pot was 2 pound.
    • tiney54 says:
      Agree with u - it's a rubbish site for those reasons.
  17. burtonlad says:
    Just joined Glossy Bingo and don't like the idea that u depo 5 pound u get 25 free and u cant play the penny games with ur bonus money. Bit unfair when u made a deposit. Don't think i will deposit here again - should be able to play all games if u depositing player.
  18. tiney54 says:
    Hi. I would not play on here again, too many silly rules. I deposited cause it was a good bonus, but once your cash is gone even after depo they do not let you play certain games with your bingo bonus. In the 10p rooms even after depo if you only got bonus money left they only let you buy 24 tickets, so if you want to stand any chance of winning you have to keep depositing, so you have cash to buy more tickets. I have never heard of this happening on any other sites.and i play on lots. You cannot play in 1p rooms with bonus money either,so yet again you have to depo.
    • spintee says:
      Theres a few sites out there that catch you with not being able to buy full tiks, was caught out today at rovers bingo, and to make it worst there was only 2 rooms open and a handfull of fruit machines, Also I read the rules on glossy and only 1 withdraw per 7 days? how stupid is that, I think they can keep the bonus now I read your comment, Any decent genuine sites that care about players wouldnt do this,
    • MAW25 says:
      Hi TINEY54, Well I've not long come off Glossy Bingo after joining a few hours ago! What a very boring site only good thing is bonus you get but really it's a joke, maxing out on tickets and lucky to get 3tg! Ha ha. My adised to all is don't waste your time like me, I have closed this account as it's a joke!!!
    • burtonlad says:
      Hi I just joined Glossy and wished i never. 1st time i seen a site that only allow u to play only 24 tickets not happy and wont be back can't play in any the penny games or anything and i depo.
    • chocolat9993 says:

    • stoort2 says:
