Bingo Giving UK is a part of the 888 Group and offers players a unique experience in that a proportion of every jackpot goes to charity (a different one each month). This means you can help those in need while at the same time enjoying high quality Dragonfish 90 ball and 75 ball bingo games and progressive jackpots.
The Welcome Bonus for new Bingo Giving UK players features a 100% match bingo bonus on your first deposit (up to a maximum of £30, minimum deposit £10) plus 200% in bonus spins on specified online slot games, Temple of Ausar at the time of writing. This means that if you deposit £30, you can begin playing with £60 and lots of bonus spins.
The bingo bonus comes with a 4x deposit + bonus wagering requirement, while winnings from the bonus spins come with a much steeper 85x wagering.
UK Gambling Commission + Gibraltar GC
This is a fairly standard sort of introductory offer, although we like the addition of bonus slot spins based on your deposit amount.

Once you’ve signed up at Bingo Giving, you’re never far away from an exciting bonus or jackpot game. For instance, with The Big Five you have the chance to win a huge jackpot prize. There are other guaranteed jackpot games on offer regularly, so as well as your usual gameplay, there are always big payouts to play for.
Bingo Giving gives you the choice of 6 different bingo rooms, with great names like The Rehab, Share the Love, The Sauna, Backstage Bingo and Paparazzi Playground. You can play 90 ball and 75 ball bingo games (all on industry leading Dragonfish software), and ticket prices vary from as little as 5p up to £1. If you can’t log on when your favourite game is being played, you can always buy tickets in advance.
There are twelve guaranteed jackpot bingo games on offer every day in both 90 ball and 75 ball games (see the schedule for starting times), or you can join in progressive jackpot games like Money Talks (90 ball) and Gift of the Gab (75 ball), where you can win huge prizes when you complete a Full House within a set number of calls.
If you want to mix up your bingo games with some slot and casino game action, the range of Bingo Giving slots includes popular games by a variety of developers, including NetEnt, IGT, Eyecon and 888. Play popular slot titles include Starburst and Cleopatra, while the range of Bingo Giving casino games includes classics like blackjack and roulette, as well as video poker games.
There are a some reasonably convenient and accessible payment methods that Bingo Giving UK players can use, and the minimum deposit amount is £5. In addition to credit and debit cards, you can use Apple Pay and PayPal, or you can add funds over the phone by calling 0808 238 9836 (toll free). Deposited funds are credited to your account instantly, with the exception of money deposited using bank transfer, where it can take between 5-8 working days for your cash to reach your bingo account.
Withdrawal requests are subject to a 2-working day processing period, after which time PayPal withdrawals are then available instantly; other methods will take longer to clear (withdrawals are not available via Apple Pay, so wire transfer will be used instead).
Overall, the choice of payment methods could certainly be better, and although PayPal and Apple Pay are helpful, the lack of e-wallets will make it difficult for some players here.
There are not many bingo sites that regularly give money to charity, so Bingo Giving certainly stands out from the crowd. Money from every jackpot game is donated to a UK charity, and there is a different recipient every month (check the Charity page to see who will be benefiting over the course of the year). If you’re concerned that this largesse will affect your payouts, there is no need to worry — any charity payments are in addition to the prize pool and not taken from it.
In terms of community and engagement away from the site, Bingo Giving has both Facebook and Twitter pages, although these appear to have been inactive for some time, so this is not really an effective way to connect.
You can play Bingo Giving mobile bingo, slots and casino games on any type of portable device as there is no app to download and install. Instead, you can play all games directly in the browser of your device, and so you can access all of the bingo rooms on Apple iPhone and iPad, Android smartphones and tablets, or any phone with a browser that can connect to the internet.
We actually like the look and feel of the Bingo Giving app more than the desktop site. The colour scheme is more vivid, it is easier to navigate, and on the whole it’s a more contemporary looking site than the desktop or laptop versions.
If you’re looking for a site where the focus is predominantly on bingo, and where you get access to a good variety of bingo rooms and jackpot games, then Bingo Giving is certainly worth exploring. The software is of the highest quality, and the chat rooms are all well run, and all in all this creates a highly enjoyable gaming experience. You also have the advantage of being able to play high quality slots and casino games by the best developers, so this is another reason to give it a try.
The charitable aspect of the site is also an added advantage of playing here, so overall, we have decided to award a final Bingo Giving review score of 4 stars out of 5.
