Monkeying around may not be suited to the workplace, but it’s a must have quality when you’re playing on the ElectraWorks operated website, Bingo Chimp. Launched in 2010, this platform is now eight years old, and yet it still looks quite fresh in its design and features. This could be argued as being down to Cozy Games involvement, as their software is often regarded as a must have dynamic for successful bingo websites. Another way in could be argued that this brand has been kept in check, is that it’s part of the Best Bingo Network, a grouping of brands that are said to be the premier labels of their community. Even though this nexus doesn’t dictate what Bingo Chimp does, due to its high standards, Bingo Chimp has to make sure its quality doesn’t diminish over time.
When it comes to promotional content, Bingo Chimp won’t dazzle you with diversity in the same way that a large online casino might, but instead it chooses to cater to the needs of the many. Consequently, most of the bonuses you see are bingo related, with few to no options available for those of you who are here for the slot machines and/or mini game activities. Although this may sound less than ideal, we can assure you that there’s still plenty of rewards to be reaped from these promos.
A good example of this is the welcome packages, two bingo based offers that address both the needs of paying and play for free users. Not only will you have access to the Newbie Bingo Room, in which up to £3,000 in bingo tickets can be used (free of charge), but you can also take out three deposit bonuses, with the first one valued at a 300% match up. Even though these two deals run separately, they demonstrate how focused Bingo Chimp is in delivering easy to access, yet generous, deals. That being said, both of these bonuses are subject to terms and conditions, chiefly that of a x4 rollover requirement. What is more, if you intend to take out the deposit bonuses, you’ll need to allocate £10 into your account each time you do so.
Looking to the other bonuses of the site now, we see that all of the them are related to a single room of the bingo lobby, with the main offerings tending to be seeded pots or enhanced jackpots. Despite not wanting to bore you with too many details, we’d like to draw your attention to an example of this: Penny Bingo. Penny Bingo is the name of the room you’ll play the games in, with the penny matches available between the hours of 4pm and 11pm. Even though this isn’t a conventional bonus, it’s one that arguably has a larger range of benefits than free spins do.
In addition to the bonuses, there’s also a loyalty scheme available at Bingo Chimp, one which all members become a part of from the moment you join. This not only means access for everyone, but whether you choose to take part in using its services or not. The scheme is a simple one, with points collected from the titles able to be converted into bonus cash, which can be used to play the games.
Games and Software
As we mentioned back in our introduction, this is a Cozy Games software website, which means that most of the activities you’ll play come from that brand. However, while this is the case, there’s also titles from other software developers as well, mainly that of NetEnt and Eyecon. As many of you will know, NetEnt, in particular, is one of the most renowned brands within the industry, and so the games will be of the highest quality.
For ease of use, the bingo games have been sectioned off from the casino options and slot machines, thus allowing for a more streamlined interface and experience. What is more, while the bingo rooms are the cheapest in what they offer, they’re not the most diverse in their collection of activities, with the slot machines easily taking this title. You see, while you can enter into matches inside Big Ben, City Hall, and Victoria 90 for 10p or less, there’s only a handful of games to join in on. Moreover, these games only cater to certain types of bingo, like 90 and 80 ball, whereas the slots cater to progressive jackpots, and so much more.
In the end, it comes down to what you value the most, as Bingo Chimp can quite easily fit into categorisation as both a bingo hall and a slot machine extravaganza, albeit an exclusively NetEnt and Eyecon one.
Moving onto the financial capabilities of Bingo Chimp now, we find that their services are reasonable, although the range of payment methods may not be as extensive as what you’re used to. This is because the brand offers the more commonly used, and more popular, methods of Visa, Skrill, and PayPal, rather than delivering a broad spectrum of payments. In truth, there’s more than enough choice to suit most customers, so the lack of variety isn’t a major issue.
In regards to withdrawing funds, which is normally the more lengthy of the two banking processes, users will need to meet all wagering requirements prior to a withdrawal being allowed. This is the case for all casinos, but they also usually have a minimum amount in place as well, whereas Bingo Chimp removes that and simply focuses on your rollover progress. Due to this, banking should be speedier, with transfers taking up to three working days or less.
Gamers can rest easy when playing with Bingo Chimp, as the site holds two licenses from the Government of Gibraltar, and the UK Gambling Commission.
Support and Contact Details
The most obvious place to start looking for help is by using FAQs, as well as other such guides, because of how easy to read and concise they are. Nonetheless, they sometimes won’t offer the answers you need, and so it’s best to contact Bingo Chimp itself for answers. This is where the live chat, emails, telephone, and ticket support comes in, as these can be accessed around the clock, seven days a week. What is more, for emails and telephone, you don’t even need to be logged in in order to use them, which makes them ideal for any guest queries.
If this is an iGaming brand with social media platforms, it’s not one that advertises it very well, nor is it one you can find easily when doing a Google search. Try as we might to find Bingo Chimp on Facebook and Twitter, we had no such luck. Although disappointing, Cozy Games and the Best Bingo Network both have channels across social media, and so you can at least connect with the brand, and fellow players, that way.
