If you are looking for a new bingo bestie, then you might not need to look any further than Bingo Besties. This modern online bingo site is lined with pics that look as if someone has gone mad with a SnapChat filter. With bonus bingo and spins too, is this the place for you?
Once you have completed the registration process at Bingo Besties U.K, you need to make a minimum £10 deposit and use the promo code “BESTIES”. You will then be granted £70 worth of bingo tickets. You can use 60 of your bingo tickets (worth £0.50 each) in the 75-ball ‘Street Party’ room, and four bingo tickets (worth £10 each) in the 90-ball ‘Big Bang’ room. You must use your free bingo tickets within seven days of being awarded them. All winnings from your bonus bingo tickets are paid into your real cash account.
You will also be awarded ten free spins on a special version of the popular Eyecon slot ‘Fluffy Favourites‘. Here you win points and not cash, but every 100 points you earn is converted into £1 of real cash. You cannot win more than £1 from your bonus spins.
If you read the T&Cs in relation to this offer, you may be surprised to read that the ‘Street Party‘ bingo room is FIXED. This does not mean that the game itself is rigged, it just means that the jackpots available in these games are a fixed amount. Usually in bingo rooms the jackpot is determined by the number of players and the number of tickets sold.
£70 worth of bonus bingo tickets is certainly a very generous offer and we could find no mention of wagering requirements on the site’s slightly confusing T&Cs. The £1 cap on bonus spins winnings is less generous, though.
*First time depositors only. Min deposit: £10. Max offer: Bingo Tickets worth £70 (£30 on Street Party & £40 on Big Bang) plus 10 Free Spins (on Fluffy Favourites with winnings capped at £1). All winnings will be credited to your real money bankroll. Promotional code: BESTIES. Valid until further notice. Full T&Cs apply.
We could find no evidence that Bingo Besties runs a VIP scheme, although the site does make mention of ‘loyalty levels’. The loyalty level you reach at this site depends on how much real cash you deposit there.
The site does run an ongoing promotion where regular members are offered bonus spins each day that they log in. The amount of spins offered and the amount of winnings that can be turned into real cash before hitting a cap depend on the amount of playing time spent.
There are only two bingo games available here, namely 75-ball bingo and 90-ball bingo. These games are split over ten bingo rooms, of which four are open at any one time. You can get your bingo fix at one of the three daily bingo rooms, or at one of the seven special bingo rooms that are only open to the site’s customers once per week.
The big money here can be found in the weekly rooms which are mainly only open later in the evening. The biggest jackpot can be found in the ‘Sunday Blast’ room where there is a huge reward up for grabs.
It is worth checking the ‘Free4U’ room where you can play bingo without paying a penny. Bingo games kick off here every half an hour or so from 4pm until 11pm, and each game has a jackpot.
You can deposit here using a valid credit or debit card, PayPal, Entropay, Paysafecard or Neteller. Please be aware that this site does not accept Skrill. You can deposit any amount into your bingo account from £5 upwards, and deposits are processed instantly.
The minimum accepted cash-out at Bingo Besties is £5. You can cash out to Visa credit/debit, MasterCard (UK only), PayPal or via a wire transfer. A withdrawal takes 48 hours to process, and then around three days to appear in your account. There are a few complex rules around withdrawals at this site, so make sure you read the T&Cs before you cash out.
While we applaud the £5 minimum withdrawal on offer here, we think those withdrawal times could be speeded up a little.
You can’t really have a site called ‘Bingo Besties’ unless there’s a very nice community feel about the place. Indeed, the site styles itself as ‘The Friendliest Bingo Site Around‘.
Having made this boast, it’s not something we readily agree with. Unlike a lot of online bingo rooms, you won’t find a general chat room where you can meet your online friends and have a quick icebreaker before you head to the online bingo rooms. Chatting is kept to the game rooms themselves, and things are very friendly in there.
The chat hosts here seem to keep their distance a little and are only really on hand when someone finds themselves with a bit of a dilemma. In general, it’s up to the players themselves to keep the chat flowing, and while that’s fine, some newbies do need a little bit of coaxing out of their shells.
There’s no extra-curricular content here either – it’s just the games with details about bonuses and promos plus an FAQ section. The site does have a Facebook page, but it has no posts. Bingo Besties is not active on Twitter.
Bingo Besties does say that you can ‘take your besties with you’ and that undoubtedly is true even though this site does not offer a dedicated mobile app. The site uses Dragonfish’s excellent bingo software, which is also used by a high number of other online bingo sites.
Using Bingo Besties mobile version could not be simpler. As you would on your desktop you simply hit up the site using any popular browser. The site will then load without an issue and will appear in such a way that it’s best configured for the device you are using, be it a smartphone or a tablet. You should be able to access play on any device, be it powered by iOS, Android or some other operating system.
When you land on Bingo Besties you are greeted by pictures of ladies with ‘extra big’ puppy-dog style eyes, which we guess is like a Snapchat filter. Every picture of someone (all female) on the site appears in this manner, and it soon gets a little weary.
The site is not the best to navigate around, either, as it doesn’t really have a menu. You just click on the big button ‘Bingo’ in order to get taken through to the bingo titles.
Enough of the negatives, as we think the welcome deposit bonus is a doozy. There are also 300 slot side games here too, and from top providers such as NetEnt and NextGen Gaming.
On balance, we feel we can only award Bingo Besties three and a half stars out of five. If you want a new bingo bestie, then why not check out the site for yourself, right now?
