Paddy Power Bingo Review
About Paddy Power Bingo
Paddy Power Bingo got a fresh new look in November 2013 - the green and gold design being replaced by dark green and pink - still very distinctive, but in a much more modern way. Hopping forward to April 2017 the site adopted the new Playtech HTML5 platform and that meant that the games were brought smack bang up to date and games that had previously only been available on mobile became available to laptop/desktop players too.
In early 2018 the rest of the site caught up with the games platform and got a fresh new look too. You will have to enter a chat name when you log back in as an existing player, but all your points and reward status have been carried forward.
There is an excellent selection of gaming options to meet every need. The software and gameplay are excellent and it does not take long to get at your winnings, even in a Paddy Power shop if you want it in cash.
Rooms can be busy, especially the more popular 90 ball and 75 ball networked rooms, but this makes for good prizes. What Paddy Power does do though if offer some exclusive promos and chat games just for its own players.
Anyone looking for the social element of bingo, but not wanting to leave the comfort of the living room should try Paddy Power Bingo to play bingo online. This bingo site, established since 2006, is much more than just a place to play a game of bingo. It’s a huge community of friendly bingo fans from the UK, Ireland and across Europe.
It doesn’t matter if you want to play for small stakes or big jackpots. This site caters for absolutely everyone, from absolute beginners to seasoned players looking for more challenging games and tournaments to get stuck into.

Speed bingo is a popular feature at Paddy Power Bingo and alongside the networked speed bingo games in the Crystal room you will find the Speed Trap room. This was enhanced early in 2016 to be cheaper, speedier and to offer more chances to win than before.
Super Bargain Room - Paddy Power Bingo loves to offer value for money bingo as well as the chance to win some big prizes. In March 2016 the site merged two of its most popular rooms, the Super Room and the Bargain Basement to create the Super Bargain Room.
It's all new and improved and incorporates all the best features of the two rooms under one roof. There are more games, more chances to win and, even more importantly, is said to be even cheaper to play.
Cash Cubes and Bouncy Balls Bingo became available on pc in April 2017, having previously only been available on mobile.
While most games are 90 ball there are five 75 ball options, both 5-line games and pattern bingo and an 80 ball room, while Rainbow Riches Bingo gets a tab all of its own.
Slots and casino games
Choose from 112 different slots games in the slots section of the Paddy Power Bingo site. These are from a number of different developers and feature some exclusive Paddy Power Games with 'must drop' jackpots' that can be won multiple times per day.
There is a special tab for these exclusive games so no mistaking which ones they are. Look for perennial favourite slot games like Kitty Glitter and Pixies of the Forest, Playtech games such as Mafia Millions and Clover Rollover, plus games common to Playtech sites like Chests of Plenty and Adventures in Wonderland, plus popular Eyecon slots like Fluffy Favourites and Shamen's Dream.
In this instance the casino games seem to be separate from the slots gaming section and have been confined to their own separate section on the Paddy Power site.
Roughly about 64 of the games from the main list are available to play as bingo side games. These would mainly be the ones from Playtech themselves of from Eyecon.
Paddy Power was first and foremost a bookmaker, but made the successful transition to online sportsbook betting and gradually added all the other online gaming options.
