Online since: 2013
Welcome Bonus: 300% deposit bonus
Throughout the online bingo community, there’s few gamers who haven’t heard the name Aunty Acid, be it said among friends or from seeing an advert online; it’s a well known brand. The reason for this is because Cozy Games launched the site back in 2013, and since that time the granny mascot that’s the face of the label has wormed her way into hearts around the world. In using this imagery, that resonates with the worldview of bingo halls and dear old ladies, we have an eccentric platform that delivers over 200 activities, a lot of which are bingo based. Aunty Acid Bingo is playful, pink, and cartoony in all its detailings, not forgetting that it feels like it was specially designed with female players in mind. That being said, it’s nonetheless an inviting domain.
Given the fact that Cozy Games are the operators of this brand, it shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone that a lot of the details of the site are the same as their other platforms; this is commonplace within the iGaming industry. Even though this is the case, the deals given are sure to give you solid footing as you investigate the bingo rooms and online pokies up for grabs. One such deal that’ll help you on your way is the First Deposit Bonus.
- Welcome offer: 300% deposit bonus
- 150% second deposit bonus
- 100% third deposit bonus
This offer works for paying customers only, as the name aptly suggests, with all qualifying gamers needing to put in at least £10 to activate the bonus. When this happens, a 300% bonus will be applied, with the maximum payout being £120 in value; this amount will be valid for 30 days, in which you’ll need to meet the x4 rollover requirement. Also available are two more deposit bonuses, one of which is worth 150% while the other is a slightly lower 100%, with both these deals coming with the same terms also. In our opinion, this is more than enough for newbies to use, but Aunty Acid decided to bring Cozy Games’ trusty £3K Free Bingo promo into the mix, which grants users seven days of free bingo.
Of course, the above deals only work while you’re a newcomer, with their worth soon disappearing thereafter, and so we need more to keep us busy, like the room based offers detailed. These vary, with Penny Bingo, The Guaranteed Bingo Bash, and Night Owls being just three promotions which take place in different rooms by using different forms of bingo. What is more, they’re cheap and cheerful, designed for all budgets, thus ensuring that plenty of users can get involved. And (yes, there’s more), there’s the benefits of the loyalty scheme to reap on top of all of this, with customers becoming part of the scheme once they start playing the games.
Games and Software
Softwares: Cozy Games, NetEnt and Eyecon
When anyone thinks of a bingo website, they naturally assume that there’ll be few activities to entertain themselves with, and yet Aunty Acid proves that bingo labels work almost like mini casinos. Not only is there an ample supply of bingo rooms, such as Big Ben, Down Town, and Penny Bingo, but there’s also a Slots, Casino, and Games section, each of which brings a contrasting set of titles to the table.
Let’s begin with the bingo page, seeing as how it’s the main forte of the brand; once there, you’ll notice not only the sheer number of rooms, but also that 90 ball is merely one form of the game. There’s also 30, 75 and 80 ball bingo. Furthermore, all of the rooms have been made affordable to play, with ticket costs ranging between 1p and 25p (or your currency equivalent). Users can choose whether they begin a round of bingo immediately, or whether they prebuy a ticket and ready themselves for the next game to start. It’s a flexible system.
As for the one armed bandits, Slingo, mini games and other such delights, well they don’t involve a ticket system, but they do insist that you’re a real cash gamer. What is more, unlike the bingo titles that are from Cozy Games, the other titles come from NetEnt and Eyecon, the two common partners of the operators. And so, while you won’t necessarily get free gaming from these subsections, you will get fantastic quality from developers that know the industry inside out.
Banking options: Visa, Boku, and PayPal
If any of the games have taken your fancy, it’s going to be difficult to score some big wins without knowing the banking setup that Aunty Acid has, and so we’ll take a look at the methods enabled. For deposits and withdrawals, users can use a small selection of options, including Visa, Boku, and PayPal; the diversity isn’t as great as some labels, but it’ll allow for a little bit of choice.
When making a transaction, your money will be processed in EUR and GBP, with few other currencies allowed. Furthermore, withdrawals are going to take a lot longer to process, due to the flow back option that Aunty Acid offers, in which withdrawals can be reversed. Should you not decide to ‘cancel’ a withdrawal, the money is normally transferred within three working days, while deposits are an instant form of banking. Before we move on, it has to be said that withdrawals won’t be permitted unless you’ve overcome the wagering requirements of any bonuses you have taken out. This is an important element of banking with Aunty Acid to keep in mind at all times.
Since its release, this label has had two licenses in operation, coming from the UK Gambling Commission and the Government of Gibraltar.
Contact and Support Details
Finding a means of assistance is never going to be difficult with Aunty Acid Bingo, seeing as the site provides FAQs, how to play guides, and a set of contact options. The two former options are a lot more long winded than contacting the team, but they could just save you the effort of having to actually speak to someone from Aunty Acid Bingo. However, if that isn’t an option for you and your query, you can call, email, live chat and raise a ticket 24 hours a day.
In terms of social media, Aunty Acid Bingo clearly links to a Facebook page, as demonstrated by the inclusion of the app’s widget. Nevertheless, it doesn’t connect to a brand specific page but rather a Live Bingo Network page, therefore meaning that the posts reference to all of their sites, not just Aunty Acid.
