Monkey Bingo Review
Online since: 2014
Welcome Bonus: 250% deposit bonus
If you fancy monkeying around, the 2014 launched Monkey Bingo may be the ideal iGaming destination for you. Owned by Ignite and operated by Cassava Enterprises, this website has a lot of positives already associated with its name, which are only deepen when you take into account that Monkey Bingo is part of the Dragonfish Bingo Network. This inclusion in such as network is due to using Dragonfish software throughout the site, which ultimately means that the activities you’ll be interacting with are of a high quality. Mixed in with all of this is the fun and cheeky aesthetics of the interface, creating a playful environment in which we can play through the countless pokies and bingo titles.
As far as welcome bonuses go, Monkey Bingo isn’t going to have you going bananas, as what is offered is of a standard size and pretty typical of the industry, however it’ll mean that you get to start with extra funds backing you up. A total of three times if you so wish. You see, the first deposit bonus is open to all newbies, with an input of £5 only being needed in order to get a deposit bonus of 250% back. But, if you decide to continue making deposits with £5 or over, you stand to gain a 150% and 100% deposit bonus also, therefore resulting in an even greater pile of cash to play with. That being said, it has to be stated that each bonus comes with its own terms, including the x4 bonus and x4 deposit rollover necessity.

These introductory deals are perfect for newcomers, but as you progress to a more established status, you’ll need rewards to keep you busy, and luckily Monkey bingo offers them. Don’t misunderstand, this label doesn’t lavish you with limitless offerings, but rather presents a compact array of deals, most of which are related to the bingo rooms of the website, like the promo Going Nuts. What is more, depending on the time of year, you may find seasonal promotions popping up, in relation to spring, Christmas and other such national holidays. And so, there’ll always be some form of bonus to get behind, should you wish to do so.
What is more, if you’re a rewards junkie who simply can’t get their fill, there’s also the VIP scheme to connect with, called Diamond Club. For those of you who have played with Cassava Enterprises before, the name of this club will be familiar, as too will their rules of engagement. Basically, you need to collect points in order to move from one level to the next, with the top ranking status being the crowning glory of your efforts.
Games and Software
Softwares: Dragonfish, NetEnt and Eyecon
Coming back to Dragonfish software for the time being, we look to the activities to see what kind of longevity is offered to both freeplay and paying customers, and yes, free gaming is on hand. It won’t necessarily come from the slot machines and scratchcards, as those tend to demand cash up front, but some of the bingo titles are specially designed to cater to the free gaming market alone.
To find such a room, as well as the VIP room and various others, with them tending to stick to 90, 75 and five line bingo, you need to select the form of game you wish to play. You can see this clearly when visiting the bingo lobby, and so we’d suggest visiting other websites if you have a craving for 30 ball bingo and other such formats. All games are easy to get into, normally costing no more than a couple of pence in your currency, and so getting involved is as simple as can be. Furthermore, some of the titles will offer large jackpots, guaranteed to one lucky player, therefore giving Monkey Bingo this identity as a highroller platform.
Should none of that take your fancy, there’s the software of Eyecon and NetEnt to immerse yourselves in, via the one armed bandits and other such activities. We’d argue that these are less friendly to budget players, but they’re by no means less enjoyable, with the reels always offering some form of special feature. There’s even the chance to play mini games, aka instant wins, such as Noughts and Crosses, which is a rare find in today’s market.
Banking options: Visa, PayPal, Neteller and Boku
As you already know from the promo section, a minimum deposit of £5 is all that’s needed to get banking started, and that same figure is true of the withdrawals also. No matter if you bank in GBP or EUR, the same limitations will apply, with users only able to make 10 withdrawals each day. If this sounds low, we’d like to point out that some bingo platforms only permit a single withdrawal every 24 hours.
To move around your cash, be that inputting or taking out, you can use the services of Visa, PayPal, Neteller and Boku, with some of these providers only accessible depending on where in the world you live. As far as we know, none of them apply banking charges, though you may want to double check with your banks to be doubly sure. What is more, when it comes to taking out a lump sum, as many as 10 business days may be required, due to the lengthy processing times of Monkey Bingo. That being said, some payment methods are quicker than others, so we advise that you do your own research into these estimated timeframes.
Monkey Bingo, being the reliable website that it is, is seen as such partly due to the dual license that comes from the UK Gambling Commission and the Government of Gibraltar. Some of the details of which can be found towards the bottom of the homepage.
Support and Contact Details
As with most websites, there’s a set of FAQs to read through if the going gets tough and you need some assistance. However, these answers may not always fit the query you have, which is when you need to visit the Contact Us section. Once there, you’ll find that three main options are open to you: email, live chat, and telephone support, the latter of which is free for UK users only. As for live chat, that takes place inside the bingo rooms, and so only emails remain conventional in their accessibility, a dynamic that some of you may find difficult to get used to.
Seeing as there’s no obvious social media links provided, we did our own bit of research to find any associated platforms; some did come up under the same name, but it wasn’t clear if they belonged to this Monkey Bingo or not. Therefore, we believe that if there are any social channels belonging to this brand, they’re not easy to find, and most certainly aren’t active at this time.
