Harry’s Bingo Review
Online since: 2007
Due to bingo being an ever popular game, numerous brands have been launched in a bid to monopolize the online market, with Harry’s Bingo being one such label. Established in 2007, this ElectraWorks operated platform is a Cozy Games software using domain that offers 200 activities. True, this is a familiar set of features from the operators and Cozy Games, as they tend to design all of their sites in this image, but that doesn’t mean that Harry’s Bingo should be overlooked. Free of novelty aesthetics, this is arguably a platform that those of you with more purist iGaming tendencies will want to head, as you’ll be free of gimmicks and tacky imagery. In turn, this’ll give you more time to spend focusing on the games and other services of the brand.
Even though we go into this knowing the predictability of the label, due to the components we mentioned earlier, we’d like to try and approach all sections with as much neutrally as possible. After all, regardless of the sameness between all the sites belonging to Cozy Games, they still provide up to date content, which includes their promotional materials.
Seeing as a lot of you will likely be new to Harry’s Bingo, it’s logical to want to know what long term offers are provided, as well as the brief welcome packages accompanying them. Harry’s Bingo doesn’t have a VIP club, as such, but it does offer a loyalty scheme that’s based on collecting points; these are collected when you game (with real money), with these points then able to be converted into cash. What is more, there’s also Bonus Bucks, another type of loyalty scheme, though these are more complimentary than the points, and so are awarded less often. As you can see, there’s a couple of ways to maintain a steady flow of bonuses.
However, if that isn’t your primary concern, with you more focused on instant gratification, then the 300% deposit bonus is for you. This is worth up to £120, with customers only needing to allocate £10 to activate it; obviously, the more you deposit, the higher the returns. Should you wish to create further additional income, albeit bonus cash, then you can do so by taking out the 150% deposit bonus, as well as the 100% one, both of which require a £10 allocation. All three of these deals have rigid terms and conditions, which include the x4 wagering requirements prior to withdrawals being allowed.
There’s additional welcome offers to savour also, such as free bingo for your first seven days, but we suspect you may want to learn more about what existing customers get. Despite delivering more than just bingo activities, all of the promotions are related to specific bingo halls, with the pots either fixed or seeded. Furthermore, you often get a reduced price when playing these deals between certain hours of the day, for example, BOGOF takes place inside the Victoria 90 Room, with gamers given two tickets for the price of one, between 1am and 7am. As this deal, and the others, gives you the potential to win money, any winnings will be subject to the aforementioned rollover requirements.
Games and Software
As we move onto games, some of you may wonder what more a bingo site can offer other than 90 ball activities, but you’d be wrong in thinking that; not only does Harry’s Bingo deliver 90 ball titles, but there’s also 80, 75 and 30 ball too. Furthermore, there’s a large supply of slot machines, created by Eyecon and NetEnt, which, although more exclusive than an online casino, helps to create a more accessible platform for players.
When investigating the bingo halls, e.g. Big Ben, Victoria 90, and City Hall, they’ll each detail to you the type of bingo being played, as well as the number of players currently active, and the price of a ticket. Moreover, you’ll be able to join in with a game that’s already started or simply wait for the next by purchasing a prebuy coupon. All things considered, this is a well executed system, one which few bingo sites outside of the Cozy Games network can replicate quite as well.
In regards to the pokies and tabletop games, while there’s no live casino action, you’ll be able to spin your way to some large jackpots and bonus rounds, thanks to the variance of the titles. Granted, the games only come from two software developers, but the extensive nature of their catalogs ensure prolonged entertainment value for all, even in spite of there being no freeplay options.
In total, there’s nine different means of making a deposit with Harry’s Bingo, with all of these options seemingly enabled for withdrawals as well, these include Visa, Boku, and Paysafecard. Considering that this isn’t a large iGaming label, and that this site is several years old now, the fact that there’s so many options is a credit to its creators. Another positive is that the minimum deposit value is set at £5, which should allow more customers to engage with the gameplay.
This ease of use can also be experienced when making a withdrawal, although we’d argue that this type of process has more steps, due to verifying ID and meeting the wagering requirements. That being said, once you’ve completed this, you should be able to take out your money in EUR or GBP. Provided everything goes smoothly, your money should be with you in under seven business days.
Harry’s Bingo holds a license from the Government of Gibraltar and the UK Gambling Commission, as detailed upon the website itself.
Support and Contact Details
A lot of the time, the FAQs should be more than enough to get you through any hitches you may experience, as we find that Harry’s Bingo has delivered easy to follow questions and answers. However, should this not be the case, there’s always the 24 hour customer services of the label, which allow you to contact support via email, live chat, and an onsite system. As for phone support, that’s described as ‘coming soon’, though we couldn’t tell you how long the site has stated this, nor when they finally intend to introduce the option.
To keep connected to its players, this brand has proudly displayed its three social channels, that of Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. When we looked at these, we found that Facebook was the most up to date of the three, while the others had been left a tad neglected over the last few months (even years).
