Online since: 2015
Welcome Bonus: £70 worth of tickets
This is certainly a recently launched bingo website that’s aimed at women and gay men; don’t get us wrong, we’re sure heterosexual men can enjoy the Dragonfish software of Hunky Bingo, we’re just not sure they’d want to given the design and name. Going off of the aesthetics, it’s easy to think that this label was established last year or 2016 at the latest, but in fact Hunky Bingo was founded in 2015. This isn’t an issue as such, but it obviously goes to show that contemporary designs last much longer than poorly thought out themes. If we take a look at the Real Bingo Network, the nexus that Hunky Bingo is part of, we can see this clever tactic utilised again and again.
Where would promotions be if they didn’t offer an enticing welcome package? It’s the lifeblood of many iGaming websites, which is why we look at the newbie bonus before all others. Seeing as how Dragonfish are behind this site, at least in part, the bonus we’re given has been seen by many customers before. It doesn’t make the £70 worth of tickets any less appealing, but it means that you’ll likely have come across the terms and conditions before, and that the quality of this reward starts to feel less than special.

- 10 bonus spins on Fluffy Favourites
Alongside the tickets, which are given after a £10 deposit, there’s also a set of 10 free games playable on Fluffy Favourites, an Eyecon one armed bandit that is said to be one of the their most popular. This and the above tickets come free of any wagering requirements, which a unique new way for bingo websites to attract you. However, it has to be said that the bonus wins from the spins, and other such features, are restricted to no greater than £1. Basically, nothing is for free really, even if it’s advertised as such.
As we continue on to find more promos, we find that Hunky Bingo is lacking in a lot of depth – it may offer regular free spins, as well as the odd monthly deal that guarantees a cash prize, but otherwise this bingo site is seriously lacking in promotional materials. And as for a VIP club, there seems to be one, but we can’t find much information about it, which is problematic for anyone who hasn’t signed up just yet and is unsure whether you even should.
Games and Software
Softwares: Dragonfish, Eyecon and NetEnt
To keep this site ticking over, there’s both bingo titles and pokies to play, with the software providers being Dragonfish, NetEnt and Eyecon. Seeing as we’re here for bingo, it makes sense to hit those rooms first, with the games tending to be an affordable 25p or less. These rooms have fun names like Ace Club, Last Call, and Hunky 90, with the games being 75, 90 and sometimes 52 ball bingo also, though the former two formats are the most popular among customers. What makes the games so much fun is that you don’t need cash to play them, as there’s a dedicated free bingo room, a feature we feel that all sites should aim to include.
Of course, if none of this suits your tastes, there’s just over 300 slot machines for you to play, with the games included being some of the most loved among the community. Most of the time these slots will offer freeplays just like the bingo rooms, though anything that’s table based tends to be money only, as is the way with standard online casinos as well. To see the full array of activities, all guests need to sign up and become members first, otherwise you only get a brief overview of several titles rather than the full picture.
Banking options: Visa, Paysafecard and Mastercard
Paying for games is all well and good, but if you don’t know which providers are available to you, you’re soon going to hit a massive hurdle on your quest for online gaming. This is where the FAQs come in, as they state that Visa, Mastercard and Paysafecard are among the accepted methods allowed. There’s others permitted as well, but you’d need to browser your account details after joining to see the full list.
What you don’t need to search for is the allowed currencies, as Hunky Bingo permits transactions in EUR, USD and GBP, as well as the majority of other monies. This is true for most of Dragonfish websites, and so international players are more than welcome to make a withdrawal or 10. We say 10 as that’s the daily limit for removing money, with several business days needed before the funds clears. Of course, if you change your mind and want to reverse the transaction, you can do so within 48 hours of putting it through.
To ensure everything that Hunky Bingo does is above board, there’s a license provided by the UK Gambling Commission and the Government of Gibraltar. These are two of the most commonly seen regulations active on games sites, and so you can have peace of mind when playing with a label governed by them.
Support and Contact Details
We suggest that everyone looks through the FAQs before contacting support, just because what you’re looking for tends to be found inside these type of sections. However, should you feel like you haven’t got the answers you were looking for, there’s the Contact Us page that details three main methods of contact. These are live help, email and phone, with all three of them being operational from 10am until 2am everyday of the week.
To round off our review, and to give you the fullest of pictures, we look to social media and the accounts that Hunky Bingo has. Funnily enough, this label does have a Facebook channel, though it’s a page that hasn’t been used in many months now, which goes against the modern image that this website is trying to project. We’d like to say that we rarely see this from iGaming websites, but that would be a lie, as far too many brands create a social channel and then neglect it as soon as they become bored of the upkeep.
