Bet365 Bingo Review
Bet365 has been on our high street for many years before finally taking the plunge into online gambling in 2000. Created by businesswoman Denise Coates in a portacabin in Stoke-on-Trent, it was far from the most glamorous beginnings in life, but something that has blossomed into a valuable source of income for the Bet365 chain. As well as working hard to increase their profits Bet365 are involved in various charitable causes and in 2014 donated a whopping £105 million through their Bet365 Foundation. Money has been given to charities working with HIV and AIDS sufferers, those suffering the effects of natural disasters and some of the most vulnerable people in the UK and further afield.
Playing bingo online with Bet365 offers you plenty of choice. There are 75 ball and 90 ball bingo games available, as well as the lesser seen 80 ball games. The amount of people playing online is often large, meaning larger sized prize pots than the average site.
Branded bingo games are also included, with rooms such as Deal or No Deal and Lucky Numbers available. The Deal of No Deal game is great for those who like to interact with other players. During game play several boxes are displayed on the screen and these represent the bonus given to the winner of the full house game. These boxes are represented by a number and when these numbers are called a box is removed. Once the game has completed the full house winner will be given an offer from the Banker which they can choose to accept or reject based on the values of the boxes shown. All the other players in the room have the opportunity to vote on whether the winner should take the deal or chance their luck and take the box.
With Lucky Number Bingo, players have an opportunity to play for three additional jackpots which are awarded if you win the full house on a lucky jackpot number. Free games are also available on site, as is the popular 40 ball game Cash Cubes and Rainbow Riches.
There are also a large number of slots available on site including Starmania, The Codfather and Fireworks as well as large jackpot games such as The Winnings of Oz and Shaman’s Dream for a chance to become a millionaire overnight!
Current bonuses on site are very generous. The largest of these is the Bet365 welcome package which is broken down into three elements.
1. £1,000 free bingo.
All you need to do to get started is sign up on site using your personal details and register a Chat Name. This gives you entry to the Welcome Party room. In the Welcome Party room, there is a minimum of £1,000 in prizes to be won and all games are 100% free to play. Free bingo is available between 1pm-2pm and 7pm-9pm. The great thing about this room is you have access to it for seven days plus the remainder of the day you signed up on and it is only accessible by new players. Any winnings must be played through FOUR TIMES before they are made withdrawable.
2. £20 slot bonus.
When you sign up you will be asked if you’d like to make a deposit. Add a minimum of £10 to your account and spend this and you’ll be given a free £20 bonus to spend on a selection of slots on site. Like the £1,000 free bingo bonus above this bonus is subject to a wagering requirements, which in this case is 20 TIMES the bonus before it will be withdrawable. If you have not spent the full bonus in 14 days it will be removed from your account if the wagering requirement has not been met.
Games included in the promotion are:
1 Can 2 Can
A While on the Nile
Foxin’ Wins Again
Gorilla Go Wild
Merlin’s Magic Respins
Teddy Bear’s Picnic
3. Up to £100 bingo bonus.
Deposit and spend a minimum of £10 on bingo tickets and you’ll receive a 200% bonus capped at £100. For clarification, deposit £10 and you’ll receive £20, deposit £50 and you’ll receive £100, etc.
Like the bonus above the original bonus will be forfeited if you haven’t met the wagering requirement within 14 days. The bonus is also non-withdrawable, meaning that you can only pocket your winnings. Still, this is a great deal to get started with as you can increase your bingo bank roll and when combined with the slots bonus and the free bingo can make for a really great start to your Bet365 experience.
It is important to note that you can only have one bonus open at one time so you would have to complete the welcome package bonuses before you can take advantage of any other offers on site.
Deposits and Withdrawal
Players can make their deposits in a variety of ways including instant credit and debit card transactions and a host of online payment wallets such as Neteller, Skrill and PayPal. The latter of these is not often seen on bingo or casino websites, so it is a real boon of Bet365. For those who are a little bit more patient when making deposits bank transfer is also available. This takes between 1-3 banking days for the payment to reach your Bet365 account so do bear this in mind if you are depositing using this option. Withdrawals can be made using all of these methods and more with £20,000 being the maximum you can return to your cards, £37500 to Neteller, £25000 to Skrill and up to £100,000 by bank transfer. All site transactions are safe and secure and protected by the latest SSL data encryption to ensure that your personal details are kept under wraps.
While there may be websites out there with bigger bonuses, few can cite the history that Bet365 have had. Combine this with the latest in security technology and you know that you are playing on a bingo site that is responsible and reliable.
The site also offers a huge selection of slot games as well as extensive bingo game choices meaning that this is a site that you are likely to want to return to again and again, and if you do so there will be something new each time.
