Blighty Bingo Review
Online since: 2017
Welcome Bonus: £70 worth of gaming ticket
If you’ve not got love for Britain, then Blighty Bingo isn’t going to be the label for you, as this 2017 launched brand is covered in British iconography. In fact, you can’t move because of all the red, white and blue. Even though the theme is overzealous, we have to praise it, as the software behind it from Dragonfish shines right on through; it looks polished and fresh. Alongside the memorable aesthetics of this interface, there’s the fact that Blighty Bingo is part of the budding new Real Bingo Network. Despite this being a new nexus of labels, it shouldn’t be considered less than reputable, as it gives the website authority among its peers.
Part of the reason why this label is so much fun is due to the promotions that customers can partake in; true, the graphics help a lot, but at the end of the day the bonuses that’ll improve your experience aren’t to be overlooked. In our opinion, promos can make or break an iGaming website, just like it can do with a thriving online casino. And so we turn our attention to the welcome offer, which consists of £70 worth of gaming tickets. To unlock the value of these tickets, you need to spend £10 on your first deposit while using the code ‘BLIGHTY’.
- Welcome offer: £70 worth of gaming ticket
- 10 bonus spins on Fluffy Favourites
- VIP Club
These passes are playable across a couple of different titles, with a series of 10 bonus spins also available to be played on Fluffy Favourites, an Eyecon game that’s a cult classic to many users. Should you make a win when using these spins, that money will be credited to your real money balance, with no wagering requirements applied. Yes, you did read that right, no rollover requirements is part of what makes Blighty Bingo such a favourite among gamers.
Seeing as how there’s no conventional deposit bonus, it makes sense that there’s no reload bonuses either. However, something is needed to make up for this lack of scope, which is why there’s free spins given on a daily basis whenever you login to your account; it’s a small peace offering, but for the most part it does the job. What is more, there’s tiers of membership to climb, sort of like a VIP club, resulting in you being able to access specialised promos and extra spins. This isn’t the only exclusive part of the site to access, but we’d argue it’s much more alluring than the bingo room related offers, such as the The Big Bang, a reward activated on the 10th of every month.
Games and Software
Softwares: Dragonfish, Eyecon and NetEnt
Due to the fact that Dragonfish is in charge of the software, it makes sense that the rooms on offer are similar to what we’ve seen from the brand before. The only main difference here is that the rooms have been given different names, like Blighty 90, Priceless, and Last Call, with each of these rooms charging no more than 5p a ticket. Each of these rooms come with their own set of jackpots, with the Blighty 90 Room offering a progressive payout while the others are at a set price. Not bad for a selection of 75 and 90 ball bingo activities.
In regards to the other games of Blighty Bingo, there’s slot machines and table top titles, not forgetting the odd instant win. These games come from two prominent brands, Eyecon and NetEnt, thus ensuring that all users get a varied experience. Please note that without being a member you won’t be able to see a full selection of the activities, as is the norm for most of the websites created by Dragonfish. Another common trait with all of these sites is that no freeplays are given until after you’ve registered.
Banking options: Visa, Mastercard, Paysafecard
Moving onto our next section of this review, we take a closer examination of the banking options, which include both credit cards and ewallets. Consequently, this means that customers can use Visa, Paysafecard and other such providers, like Mastercard. These options can be used to bank primarily in GBP, though we’ve read that EUR is also an accepted currency also.
When you wish to make a transaction, you’ll need £5 available for both deposits and withdrawals. However, what separates these two from one another is that withdrawals take a lot longer to process than deposits, with the maximum time said to be up to 10 days. This varies depending on the payment you’ve chosen, and so it could be much faster than suggested. Furthermore, there doesn’t appear to be any charges brought against you when banking with Blighty Bingo, which is another plus of this website.
Just like with any games website, a license needs to be active to ensure that all the services are not only fair but also secure. In the case of Blighty Bingo, there’s a dual license from the UK Gambling Commission and the Government of Gibraltar; these are the same regulators for most of the Dragonfish websites.
Support and Contact Details
Open to all customers seven days a week, Blighty Bingo others an email and telephone option, with no sign of a live chat method in sight until you visit the bingo rooms. All queries sent via these methods will find that they’ll be answered up until 2am each day, with players then needing to wait until 10am before the team returns to respond.
Should you not need help from the team, there’s also the FAQs, as well as the terms and conditions. We wouldn’t say that either of these serve as a way of bypassing support, but they should point you in the right direction if you require only the gentlest of nudges.
When you look over the interface of this bingo based platform, we don’t see any mention of social media from Blighty Bingo. And yet, if you take to Google and start searching for yourself, you soon find that there’s a Facebook community page. Unfortunately, not many posts have been made since early 2017, and so we have to wonder if the team bothers using this platform like it should do.
