About Vernon's Bingo

Vernon’s Bingo (previously Littlewoods Bingo) offers instant bingo entertainment with an excellent pedigree.

Vernons Bingo is a lovely and bright site. The cute little pug playing in flowers adds a touch of ‘Awww’ to the bingo site. His name is Stan in case you were wondering! The colour scheme is mainly purple and green and looks so modern.

The welcome page has so much on display, games, jackpots, winners, community and so much more. The getting started tab is great for new bingo players. This is designed to ease you into the site.

There are huge bingo jackpots, progressive jackpots and a huge selection of games – it’s no wonder why the bingo site was packed when I stopped by.

Vernons Bingo is a dedicated bingo site in its own right, but is also part of the larger Vernons.com site that was originally all about sports betting and the football pools (for those that remember them in pre-lotto days).

The tabs for Bingo, Games, Promos, VIP and Help keep you within the bingo section, but the Casino and Sports tabs take you to the main Vernons site, although you will remain logged in with your bingo credentials and wallet.

Bingo games

There are 14 bingo rooms in all with three from 75 ball bingo, including Deal or No Deal 75 ball, one for 80 ballm separate rooms for Rainbow Riches Bingo and Cash Cubes Bingo, Lucky Numbers and Who Wants to be a Millionaire, with the rest dedicated to 90 ball bingo.

The names of the rooms came with the site from its St. Minver days and include Bingo Cafe and Bingo Espresso;The Ballroom, Tea Room and Play Room are more recent additions.

The new HTML platform makes the games a pleasure to play and meant the site could adopt some of the newer games like Cash Cubes.

Slots and casino games

A limited range of games are available withing the bingo client, all from either Playtech themselves or Eyecon. Titles include Mayan Mania, Gladiator, Bounty of the Beanstalk, Sugar Train and Temple of Isis.

The full selection of slots and scratchcards is available within the bingo rooms as well as in their own area, but some will pop out full size as they are not available in mini format to be played as actual bingo side games.

Sports betting

You can easily move across to the main Vernons site from Vernons Bingo and use your same wallet to bet on the sports events of your choice. This section of the site offers you options for Sports, In-Play, Virtual Sports and then links around again to Casino, Games and Bingo – so you are never far away from where you may have started or where you would like to be.

Horseracing, football, tennis, golf are all featured along with almost any other sport you can name and look for features like Score Draw Money Back and Acca Insurance.

Withdrawal and wagering

  • Minimum withdrawal: £10
  • Processing time: 3 – 5 business days.
  • Bingo wagering requirement: 4x bonus

Wagering requirements can differ depending on the games you choose to play. See website T&Cs for further details as requirements may have changed since the time of writing.

I wouldn’t use this site, I’ve spent a lot over the last few months on here and all I seem to get is under £15 (every 3-4 weeks) same “people” win all the time… how can the same people magically have winning tickets 4 out of 5 games??
Avoid.

I have been with Vernons for a while now and I have to say it’s my favourite bingo site. It has its own rooms (heaven and playroom) with typically 10 to 30 players so it’s not too long between wins. There are free games throughout the day and frequent weekly promotions. There are also VIP rooms once or twice a week for which qualification is required (sometimes as little as a 1p cash wager!). The cms are generally friendly and well informed and it has all the other networked rooms that you would expect to find on a vf site.
I do have two criticisms of the site though:
1) There is a lot of misandry in the (single) chat room that goes beyond the good natured banter that you find on other sites. My advice to any males joining the site would be to use a gender neutral chat name and not get involved in the ‘aren’t men useless’ rhetoric that goes on throughout the day.
2) The request for proof of ID goes beyond what is reasonable. I had been playing on the site for over a year and had made several deposits and withdrawals when I was suddenly asked to send photo ID (driving licence or passport) plus photocopies of all bank cards used to deposit plus a recent utility bill. This I provided and everything was fine for 6 months or so until I was then asked to send a selfie of myself holding my driving licence up to my face. I had a couple of attempts rejected because they could not read the details on my licence whilst my face was in focus (difficult with a camera phone!). I had to get a friend with an SLR camera to take a photo which eventually satisfied them. I am not unique in this regard, other players have reported the same issues when making a withdrawal.

Overall though Vernons is a great site and I would recommend it to other players so long as you keep the above caveats in mind .

I don’t usually bother with reviews but Vernons is such a GREAT site. I’ve been lucky had quite a few big wins on this site, friendly cms and great offers. Like the layout. Love it. My favorite site at present 🙂

One of the worst sites on the playtech/VF network. Have been locked out of the account on several occasions, due to “technical issues”. The customer service staff take forever to reply, sometimes they don’t even bother. Chances of winning are scant, the free bingo they promise for a month only occurs on a Tuesday – same winning names each week – that is the weeks I was actually able to login.
The Casino side is a farce as well, very low payouts and I did not receive the promised welcome bonus.
I wont be playing here again, wish I had read the comments below before I joined.

Vernons use to be my favourite site, even though the same 2 players win every day and nearly every game, but that did not really bother me. I continued to play until one day i won £10 after losing £50, so i decided to take the money. They refused to give me unless i gave them, ID’s, bank details etc etc. I have never won big money, so for a tenna i could not see what the big deal was about. They then closed my account as i refused send them my details (the request from vernons came the same day as the talk talk security breach). Then sent me an email that i have £10 in my bonus fund and they have reopened my account. I felt like reporting them to the watchdog, but didn’t. However they still have my money so i may have to report them one day. Stay away from this site.

It is ok to ask for ID’s and bank details. That is for security purpose. It is a right practice and i see no reason why you deny them. I think every site does that but exceptions are always there.

Obviously it’s ok to ask for ID, but some of the onus has to be on the site operator to have clear guidelines about the ID it requires. Versons merely says it can ask for whatever they like and has no accepted document list. It also accepts paypal and mastercard as deposit yet wont refund back by the same method. I’m amazed they’re allowed to operate like this!

I joined Vernons Bingo yesterday 13/03/2015 and this must be the worst site I have ever played. Constantly same winners, the slots never payout more than the stake, and when you make a comment cm are very rude. I think which should revisit. I have played 500.00 today and nothing! After my last few games I am closing this account and will make sure anyone I know never joins it! Rubbish site and CMs who only seem to chat to the moaning crowd.

I’ve just closed my account with this site. Played here for a couple off years and withdrew money and all off a sudden needed to send copies of passport, bill, debit card. Told them to keep it as they where quick enough to take my deposits. Play other sites for years never once had this problem.

I joined Vernons Bingo 2 days ago, but they didn’t let me play and locked my account. Only got the sign up email and my first try to login …the account was locked . This happened because im not in the UK. First of all I always check every website terms and conditions and seemed ok to join. My country was on their list when i signed up. I`m in Europe and I`ll never understand why someone from Zimbabwe could sign up and I can’t . Most of the big websites have absolutely no problem with people outside Uk .

I’m new to Vernons Bingo so early days for me. It has the games I like and I won a bit, but for me it has some major drawbacks.
Firstly and most importantly, because my bank card is a mastercard debit card it seems to be impossible for me to withdrawl! Withdrawals to my card are not allowed and there are no options to withdrawl to bank!!
I tried ringing help but they cant do anything until I’ve sent ID. I did this and am still waiting, an automated reply said I should get a reply within 24 hours but I’ve heard nothing despite a reminder email. Not impressed with the lack of withdrawal facilities, the ID requests or lack of response from support. Hopefully Vernons will resolve these issues soon.

I have been playing on Vernons Bingo for a couple of weeks, you have very little chance of winning on the bingo, same names coming up all the time. The slots are terrible. I put in £30 one day in a slot and won nothing – that is bad. This site needs to be checked I am sure there is a percentage the slots have to pay. My advice take your money elsewhere.

I joined vernons, and loved the site till i won, then they wanted my id sending, bank card passport and a bill statement which i did. oh and a picture of me holding my passport, they got all my details which is still not good enough now they are sending me a letter to sign before i get my winnings. Its a wonder when they get my letter back they dont check it for my fingerprints – not a happy chappie and when i get my winnings will not be going back.

Really slow getting onto the site, took ages to load up, rooms are very confusing, people in chat were very rude. CM didn’t say anything to people who were rude/nasty to others, just seemed to say wd to winners etc. Poor payouts, prize money and bonuses on slots were terrible, would say overall worst site I’ve played on.

Joined the new Vernons Bingo site, as advertised on TV. I had a win £75 on slots. (spent £65 to get it) I have now been advised that withdrawals take 5 working days, and with a weekend in it, will now take 8 days, this is normal practise.
This is just to advise folk of what it doesn’t tell you when you register. My view being this is far too long to take to process a withdrawal.

I joined and deposited £10 and didn’t receive the 200% bonus promised, Then i kept getting booted of and locked out! Finally when i managed to actually play a game of bingo ticket prices were really high with way too many people in the room. My advice spend your money elsewhere

Since Vernons Bingo left the St Minver licence in Gibraltar and moved to Sportech in Alderney the prizes have been better. Also really love the extra chances to win like the race in bingo games, lucky numbers or last chance saloon.

Vernons Bingo is another site that’s jumped on the already over flooded virtue fusion network,. I’ve been playing Lucky Numbers bingo since the game launched, but will not be playing anymore. Far too many playing now, totally ruined that’s my view. Went down hill when Gala done its changeover. Too hard to win on now. Pretty sure the regs who always play Lucky Numbers will slowly leave, leaving these linked games to be played by a constant flow of newbies.

Avoid……. I didn’t like the set up at Vernon’s Bingo and the money you can win is rubbish. I deposited £10 to try it out and received a bonus of £20, but i had to wager £200 to be able to withdraw, that’s if i ever won enough to withdraw which would be hard to do as most off the full house winnings were just over £10!!!! The chat rooms were friendly though, but the chat games are rubbish.

I would avoid. I signed up and deposited £20 to receive the £30 bonus as shown on tv. I won nearly £180 just to find the money goes into my bonus pot and not into my cash account. After trying to get onto the site the next day i couldn’t get the web site up. I have been unable to get onto the site using ff, internet explorer or whatever. After phoning customer services they told me there was no reason i couldn’t get onto the site. I pointed out that i had managed to get on fine when i first signed up. She offered a refund i said I should have at least £50 in cash to come back and she said no that has to pay back the bonus.

Thank you for your review!
