A lot of the time, we hear a lot of commentary about not being obsessed with gaming, that we need to take a relaxed approach, a sentiment that ElectraWorks’ Eat Sleep Bingo clearly doesn’t share. This horrendously green interface may cause you to feel green at the gills, but it’s all about immersing yourself into the community, to almost become one with the games they’re offering. Given that stance on iGaming, you’d expect this to be a newly founded brand, and yet the operators actually launched this Cozy Games software website in 2010, which now makes it eight years old. Time may not have bene all that kind to its aesthetics, but nothing has worn down the power of the services held within its interface. This could be argued as to why Eat Sleep Bingo is still part of the Live Bingo Network, the largest of bingo groups currently within the industry.
More often than not, when looking at promotional materials, we begin with the newcomer bonuses and then work our way through. However, while logically this makes sense, it only highlights the immediate rewards newbies can get, rather than emphasises the long term benefits of being a member. As a result, we’re going to start off by looking for two loyalty schemes that Eat Sleep Bingo has active, then continue on from there.
If you’re wondering “what schemes?”, you’d be right to, as this brand hasn’t exactly made it clear that they exist. However, if you take the time to read the FAQs, you’ll notice that both the loyalty points and Bonus Bucks are mentioned within the Bonus and Loyalty section of the FAQs. To start with, let’s take a look at Bonus Bucks, aka BBs; these are infrequent rewards for users that regularly use the site and/or take part in specific promotional events. Once you’ve been given BBs, they can be used to play the games rather than your own money, however that means they come with wagering requirements (x4), whereas your own money doesn’t. As for the loyalty points, these are given from the moment you start playing the games, with these points then able to be converted into cash.
Existing customers also have the Midweek Treat, a bingo related promo that takes place inside the Hump Day Room, every Wednesday at 9pm. For a small fee of 5p per bingo ticket, you’ll be in with a chance of winning a £250 prize; now if that isn’t a pick-me-up, we don’t know what is! Oh, and don’t forget that all winnings are in real money and therefore without rollover requirements. Now, seeing as we’ve focused heavily on existing customers, we’d like to quickly mention the three deposit bonuses, worth 300%, 150%, and 100%, that are available to all new players. An allocation of £10 each time will trigger the bonus, with the bonuses then subject to a x4 rollover.
Games and Software
Having reviewed many ElectraWorks bingo sites before, we’ve become used to seeing the same developers involved with the games, which has chiefly been that of Cozy Games and NetEnt. However this time round, we see that Microgaming is also involved, which in turn gives this site a more diverse collection of titles. Granted, they don’t look all that impressive, but that’s due to the site’s design and not the games themselves.
All available activities can be found under the Games section, or if you want only bingo options, you can instead visit the Bingo subheading. No matter how you do it, the range presented will remain the same. In regards to the bingo rooms, which include Big Ben, the Newbie Room, and the Hump Day Room, they play games of 90, 80, and 75 ball bingo, as well as a couple of others. These games are either free or are priced between 1p and 25p, with gamers able to prebuy tickets.
As for the slot machines and casino titles, they don’t require tickets, merely for gamers to be logged in before attempting to play. Generally, there’s more pokies than any other activity, but the tabletop options are quite varied, with even a few live dealer opportunities provided, which is a rare find inside of a bingo platform.
You don’t have to go far in order to learn about which banking methods are accepted, for Eat Sleep Bingo has an image displayed at the bottom of its webpages, mentioning the likes of Visa, Boku, and Neteller. Nevertheless, for more in-depth details, you’ll need to browse the FAQs, where you’ll find that all of these methods accept payments in EUR and GBP, as well as the minimum deposit being £10.
From what we can see, there’s no monetary limits for withdrawals, however you do need to have met the wagering requirements of any promotions you’ve activated; to keep you informed of your standing, a progress bar is part of your account profile. Once you’ve met the terms of this, withdrawals should take, approximately, five business days, although sometimes the transactions can be processed much quicker. The biggest delay is that of the pending period, which is a 48 window that allows Eat Sleep Bingo to verify your account, and also allows you to flowback the withdrawal if you change your mind.
We are happy to confirm that Eat Sleep Bingo is a licensed website, having received its licensing from the UK Gambling Commission, and the Government of Gibraltar. Such regulations are in regards to the Gambling Act of 2005.
Support and Contact Details
It’ll surprise no one that this brand has customer support, as most online services do nowadays, in order to satisfy the needs of consumers. However, it’s always good to know that these services are available at convenient hours, with Eat Sleep Bingo being a 24/7 website no matter what day of the week it is. This means that when you chat, email, ring or take out a ticket, there’s someone waiting at the other end to deal with your query as soon as possible. From our own personal experience, we found the services to be incredibly fast, with live chat and telephone being the most efficient of all the methods listed.
Over the years, we’ve become used to ElectraWorks brands being rather hit and miss when it comes to social media, with this particular label being a clear miss; there’s no Facebook, Twitter, or Google+ channels related to it. That being said, all inclusive channels, like that of Cozy Games itself, may from time to time post about Eat Sleep Bingo, and so there is some form of social media to interact with.
