Online since: 2014
Welcome Bonus: 100% deposit bonus
Have you ever been laughing so badly that you’ve actually laughed your bottom off? No? Well, we’re pretty darn sure that you’ll have used the phrase ‘lmao’ in a text message or two over the years, regardless of whether you were actually laughing or not. Taking that sense of joy, faked or otherwise, Cozy Games has helped create the 2014 established LMAO Bingo. This Live Bingo Network brand follows a similar pattern to other Cozy Games sites, with it offering an easy to navigate interface, an ample supply of bingo titles, as well as considerable bonuses. However, it also sports a theme that doesn’t seem to fit the name of the brand, with the aesthetics feeling over utilised by Cozy Games before. As such, there’s seemingly a positive for every negative, leaving us to wonder whether this bingo site is a good choice for membership or not.
As we’ve already touched upon, Cozy Games tend to use the same tactics in order to appeal to its target audience, be that similar designs and/or the same deals. However, this isn’t quite true of LMAO Bingo. Instead of merely regurgitating old promotions, some new ones have been introduced, such as the first deposit bonus deal; for a £20 deposit you’ll receive a 100% bonus.
- Welcome offer: 100% first deposit bonus
- 20 free spins on Fluffy Favourites
- Spring Deals
Doesn’t sound all that special? Well, what makes this different to the norm is that it only activates on your first allocation, as well as gifting you 20 free spins on Fluffy Favourites also. And in case you didn’t already know, that’s a slot game and not a bingo one, thus ensuring both types of gamers are rewarded. Please be aware that you can deposit as little as £10 or £15, but you won’t get the full 100% bonus nor the spins, and so the £20 mark is the best figure to aim for. Moreover, there’s a x40 rollover necessity for the spins, while the monetary bonus has a x4 standing.
There’s also another avenue of newbie offers to test out, such as the free tickets for the first seven days of you joining, but that’s a heavily utilised scheme by Cozy Games. No, we wish to look at another new deal, titled Spring Deals. Although it’s true that this is a seasonal promotion, which means a short shelf life, it nevertheless helps breathes a new lease of life into the brand. What is more, when you can no longer partake in its offer (it runs until April 1st), there’s the bingo based opportunities scattered all over the promo page. And let’s not forget the loyalty scheme you become involved with from the moment you register, with you able to collect points to than convert into cash. Not much is said about this rewards system, and yet it’s a vital part of the LMAO experience, and one which shouldn’t be overlooked.
Games and Software
Softwares: Cozy Games, Eyecon and NetEnt
Before we get into the activities available, all potential customers need to know that only Cozy Games supplies the bingo titles, while NetEnt (and occasionally Eyecon) provide the other gaming options. It’s a small iGaming website, even in spite of how many pokies there are, and so those looking for massive diversity should visit more substantial labels.
As for the games, there’s over 35 bingo based ones, played across eight rooms; these rooms cater for 80, 30 and 75 ball bingo, inside rooms such as Big Ben, City Hall, and Penny Bingo. You’ll always know which form of the game is being played, as a ball with a number on is proudly displayed beside it. Also on display is the cheap costs of the games, as well as the larger prizes that can be won. The transparency given here is far more generous than what the slots gift their users, in which freeplays are a major no-no for LMAO Bingo.
In our opinion, if you’re looking for slot machines only, other casinos offer a better range and free to play options, whereas LMFAO is a haven for bingo fanatics. What is more, the bingo titles are far cheaper to play than those of the one armed bandits, which is something else to consider before spending your pennies here.
Banking options: Visa, Mastercard and PayPal
Seeing as this is a European based brand, it goes without saying that GBP and EUR are the main currencies accepted. In addition to this information however, it’s also important to know that the collection of payments accepted is on the small side, with only a handful of methods permitted. These include Visa, Mastercard and PayPal. All of these options are good, solid providers, but you’ll find that other iGaming labels have a far broader set of options for users to utilise.
As for transactions, none of them have fees applied, or at least not by LMAO itself. What is more, speed is on your side, as this brand delivers instant deposits and three day withdrawals, both of which are fast turnaround times for the industry. No limits are placed on the withdrawals, or at least not from what we can see, although wagering requirements will hinder your ability to remove cash if they haven’t been met. To know where you stand, a progress bar has been devised by the label, to ensure that all gamers know how close they are to meeting the requirements and thus being able to cash out.
As is the norm for any games website, licensing has been put in place to make sure that the games are fair and secure. In regards to LMAO Bingo, there’s two regulators in operation: the UK Gambling Commission and the Government of Gibraltar.
Support and Contact Details
When running into any issues with the above topics covered, or indeed anything else, the team at LMAO are on hand morning, noon and night, thanks to their 24 hour customer service. Support can be accessed through email, phone, live chat and onsite systems, therefore providing an accessible and easy means of gaining assistance. Furthermore, there’s also the FAQs page should you wish to look for your answers within there.
What customers are given is pretty standard, but it all helps to create this sense of on hand, ready to help customer support, which is enormously important for the stability of any brand. Fortunately for us, Cozy Games always comes through with strong support options.
In regards to social media, a part of the iGaming circuit that has increased in popularity, LMAO Bingo is removed from such channels, or at the very least doesn’t bother to advertise their accounts. During our review and searches, we found no mention of Facebook, Twitter or any other such channels, therefore leading us to believe that none exist. Although not a major issue, it could put highly social fans of bingo off from joining the label.
