Online since: 2013
Welcome Bonus: 300% deposit bonus
When it comes to its name, Big Bucks Bingo doesn’t simply refer to the amount of money you can win, but also to the wild west theme that dominates the site. Think of traditional cowboys, angry looking cacti, and sundrenched landscapes and you’ll have an idea of the type of aesthetic that this 2013 released platform is presenting. Although the interface looks to be an individual, almost independent brand, once you scroll further down the homepage, you learn that Cozy Games are behind the dynamics of this website. And as many are aware, Cozy Games knows the bingo community well. This site, like many of their others, has been designed to create a space for free and paid gaming, with a particular focus on various forms of bingo.
Of course, being a successful platform doesn’t come about simply from delivering accessible gaming, but from understanding what gamers want, which brings us to Big Bucks’ promotions. When visiting the promo page, there’s a lot on offer that we’ve definitely seen before, including that of the welcome deals, and yet it doesn’t deter us. In fact, it makes us feel more at ease with the brand, as it’s familiar.
- Welcome offer: 300% deposit bonus
- 150% second deposit bonus
- 100% third deposit bonus
The first of these welcome deals is for a week’s worth of free bingo, valued up to £3K, which we can all agree is a considerable amount of free rounds to be gifted. And best of all, it doesn’t cost you anything to activate, with all new customers receiving this offer, regardless of whether they want it or not. Should you use the benefits of this promo, then the wagering requirement of x4 will come into play with any winnings made. As for the other deal, that will demand money from you, in the form of a £10 allocation for each of the three possible deposit bonuses. These are worth 300%, 150% and 100%, with the rollover requirement the same as mentioned previously.
Continuing on with the deal, though now we’re looking for what existing users will be able to take out, the collection on offer is small but varied. However, the variance is inside the bingo rooms only, with little to nothing on display for anyone playing Big Bucks Bingo pokies and instant wins. An example of this is BOGOF inside the Victoria 90 room, with the promo available from 1am until 7am, in which time all purchased tickets receive a second one for free. There’s many other deals similar to this one, such as Night Owls and Penny Bingo, with these two appealing to two different groups of players.
Games and Software
Softwares: Cozy Games, NetEnt and Eyecon
Seeing as Cozy Games are more than an operator, as in they create their own games also, it makes perfect sense to see a wide array of their work within the site, especially inside the bingo rooms. When visiting this part of the site, you’ll not just find variations of bingo, like 80, 75 and 90 ball, but numerous rooms, such as Big Ben, Penny Bingo and Down Town. Moreover, you’ll notice that all the games are reasonably priced, with them never exceeding £1, thus meaning that virtually everyone can get involved. Speaking of which, to start gaming, you need to join a room and its game, with the option being to prebuy tickets or to start playing an already in-play game.
In regards to the slot machines, table based games and all other forms of entertainment, they’ve been split into different sections across the site, with the pokies offering the biggest diversity. Not that this matters too much, as all of the games come from developer giants NetEnt and Eyecon, meaning that all the titles will be of a high quality. Sadly, even though Cozy Games appears to favour free bingo, they don’t seem to be as passionate about freeplay elsewhere, and so you need to be a paying member in order to play the activities.
Banking options: Visa, Paysafecard and Boku
We come to the part of our review now that is all about your money, specifically what you can do with it when you’re a member; as most other iGaming sites can do, Big Bucks allows deposits and withdrawals. These can be completed using methods such as Visa, Paysafecard and Boku, in addition to a couple of other providers. However, the number of options is small in its scope, which means you’re limited to popular/common methods of payment instead of all methods, no matter how niche.
Should you be okay with this, you’ll be able to bank in GBP and EUR, with deposits asking for a minimum of £10 while withdrawals seem free of monetary limits. That being said, for a withdrawal to successful go through, customers need to have dealt with the wagering requirements they have from used bonuses. As for making a withdrawal and the wait between that and receiving payment, that can take between two to three business days. This is due, in large, to the fact that there’s a pending period for your money, where you’ll be able to reverse the transaction should you change your mind.
When it comes to all forms of online gambling, respected sites will have licensing in place for its users, domestic and remote. In regards to Big Bucks Bingo, its licensing comes from the Government of Gibraltar and the UK Gambling Commission.
Contact and Support Details
In-keeping with the image of being a fair, accessible and safe website, Big Bucks has a well functioning means of contacting support available. Not only can you explore the full capabilities of the FAQs, Terms and Conditions and the How to Play Bingo pages, but there’s also four methods for speaking directly to the team. All registered users can email, live chat, phone and/or raise a ticket with a team member, with every single one of these services running 24/7.
All in all, Big Bucks Bingo is a contemporary option for players, even in spite of it being five years old, with only one exception to this conclusion: there’s no social media. When playing, we never saw a link to any social media platforms, nor did any results turn up when searching the wealth of knowledge that is Google. Perhaps there is a Big Bucks social channel out there somewhere, but it isn’t anywhere easily found.
