    About Glossy Bingo

    Landing at Glossy Bingo you are transported into the realms of a glossy magazine cover page as its homepage, highlighting its offers. 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 with cash stakes.

    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.

    The site is simple to navigate and very slick, just like a top glossy should be.

    New player offer

    It's a simple and straightforward registration process and new players can claim a 250% first deposit bonus on amounts from £10 to £25, but the great deals don't end there.*

        Very happy playing at Glossy Bingo so far. Don't play bingo, just slots. Deposited on the Friday £10and played with the same tenner until Tuesday and then withdrew £300. The money was pending for 24 hours and received in my bank account 48 hours later. Well done Glossy.

        I've been playing Glossy Bingo for a few years and quite enjoy the site. I have had several big wins (no jackpots though...lol) but I do find that the limit on withdrawals is quite wrong.

        I won £11k in total, but they only allow you to withdraw £5k and then you have to wait a complete month before withdrawing the rest. When I won my first big one my withdrawal limit was smaller, but I found that having withdrawn the limit at that time that I ended up going and playing the rest...that was a mistake I have not repeated.

        I feel that by having to wait a whole month before being allowed to withdraw anything over £5k is their ploy for you to play back your winnings. Also the fact that you have to wait for 48 hours before the money is processed is another downside...again I feel this is their ploy for you to reverse withdrawals.
        I rarely play bingo because I don't really win, but when I do it is usually with bingo bonuses and then I will just buy in advance and I find that I win better that way then having the actual tickets on screen. Glossy and Butlers are the same company but I don't mind playing these sites.

        I have been playing on Glossy Bingo for a while now with minimal wins. Not a fan of the bingo, but like the slots. Unfortunately, wagering is very high. This weekend I received an email saying if I deposit 10.00 I get 100 free spins. The free spins generated in a win of around 18.00 but now I have to spend 300.00 to release any bonus funds to cash. Please do not accept free offers from this site as the cost is tremendous. Play with cash and ignore all bonus spins, etc.

        I have to say I am surprised with the negative comments, however people clearly do encounter problems. I personally have found Glossy Bingo to be a great site. I never do very well on bingo so decided to play the slots. Found one which was very lucky for me and won quite a bit. Decided to withdraw some of my winnings and I knew that I would lose the bonus amounts, but most sites apply these rules. I have received e-mails informing me where the withdrawal was up to and received my money back in my bank with no problems and also found the customer services team very helpful whenever I needed them.
        I will continue to play at Glossy and am sorry for the people that have encountered issues.

      5. Be aware of bonuses requirements. Slots hardly payout. I was new member won at first not enough to cover bonus requirements - 390 worth before can withdraw. chat host seem to know ppl and even called ppl out who was going win bingo, claiming they decide who wins jackpots. Took screen shot claimed i was going take it further and they laughed and kicked me out of chat. Be aware another money grabbing fix, there own words not mine. I dont beleive for one moment anyone has really won thousands of pounds. Maybe all know eatch other just promoteing the site who knows - let you make your mind up. steer clear, nothing to gain here.

        Great in one respect as I have joined on Wednesday 4th Feb, deposited 20.00 and got 80.00 bonus, but found bingo limited so played on slots with my real money (as cant use bonus funds on slots) and I have won a massive 13,000 - it is safe to say that on Wednesday I was over the moon! BUT..I have tried to withdraw this 13000 (I had to forfit the bonus, but so didn't care about that as struggled to spend it anyway. First they tempt you by leaving it in holding for 24 hours (they are kindly seeing if you change mind for your benefit -not-). So I'm past that 24 hours and yesterday (friday) got an email early morning confirming its now being processed! Only I go to check my account (don't know why but just as well I did) coz 13000 has been placed back into my account!!! I contacted them via email and did get a quick response and they said this is because you have not sent documents requested - then listed photo id such as licence or passport and a posted utility bill (they had not already requested this it was the first I had heard of). I don't mind proving my identity, but what bugs me is they have put money back in the account in my opinion for more temptation and the fact they insist on a posted bill when they know that most people don't have them it is all tactics to prevent me from withdrawing which is getting my back up. But I do have the correct documents and can get them there if they actually tell me where to send them as they did not bother to tell me in the email reply so iv had to ask which is where I'm at waiting for an address, so I'll keep you posted guys ........

          So its the 10th feb now and I am still no nearer getting funds. I have sent passport, driving licence, council tax bill, water bill, inland revenue letter, printed bank statement and my debit card (all photographed n sent via email), but only the passport qualified as suitable id! As the letters were out of the date limit I have sent an up to date letter from united utilities today, but I am unsure if this is acceptable as its more a letter than a bill! I have to wait up to 24 hours for it to be checked So I have a back up plan. I'm going to bank tomorrow for a stamped statement which glossy have confirmed they will accept, so if they decline the utilities letter I will have to wait another 25 hours for them to accept the statement, but at least I know It will then at least finely process the payment - normally a 3 day wait, but something tells me it may be longer. I shall let you know.

          Its now the 14th Feb and no money yet but... I went to bank on the 11th for the stamped statement which they accepted and approved same day so then, as they had put funds back into my account I had to withdraw all over again(12,900 coz I gave into temptation and tried to gamble more and lost 100.00 - I could kick myself). I had to go through the full process including the 24 hour + holding time (you have to wait till the 6am following the 24 hours as that's the only time they send withdrawals to the finance team) so this took me to the 13th (yesterday) before the money even left the account. I then gets an email telling me I had reached the 5,000.00 withdrawal limit for the 30 day period!! Yes turns out in the terms and conditions you can only withdraw a maximum of 5,000 in any 30 day period unless its a jackpot win in which case there is not a limit. My win was not a jackpot just several lucky spins so yes you guessed it, 7,900.00 has been put back in my account and 5,000.00 is apparently on its way (I wish when I originally tried to withdraw it restricted the limit there and then and I would have known this on the 4th Feb saving me the heartache nearly 10 days later). I am eligible to withdraw another 5,000.00 on the 15th March!!!!! So it will be April before I get the final payment!!! I know I should be grateful I have won so much money (i am) but at end of day I would like to see it sat in my account as its mine. I am still mixed emotions about this site.
        • First off if you joined you have 100 pounds bonus. I joined and deposited 20 pounds same promotion - you did not say whot you won on. Personaly if you did its a miracle sounds like your trying promote the site, not leave review. If you really did win congrats, but personaly i think this is very unlikely.

        Be careful with Glossy Bingo. After having documents accepted and receiving first withdrawal, apparently for my second withdrawal they have not received them. What a farce. I have contacted lotteries and gaming, Malta,to complain about this site. I urge you all to do the same; withholding funds seems to be their game.

        Glossy Bingo is typical of many bingo sites today. Lots of tempting offers to lure you in but if you actually want to withdraw some money it is like asking for the Crown Jewels. The people on their chat service are totally useless and unhelpful. I am trying to withdraw less than 50.00 and they are demanding to see all sorts of documentation first; never had this problem with other sites I have used.
        If you want to join a site that will make your blood boil Glossy Bingo is for you!

        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.
