New Look Bingo Review
Online since: 2013
Welcome Bonus: 300%, 150%, and 100% first three deposit bonus
Despite its ‘new looks’, the New Look Bingo site is far from a freshly released label, with the domain actually having been founded in 2013. As we can all agree, a lot has changed over the past four years, and yet this Cozy Games website has managed to weather most of the onslaught of gaming trends. No, it isn’t as fresh faced as it used to be, nor does this Live Bingo Network recognised website deliver an exceptional range of software. But what it lacks in some areas it makes up for in others. Furthermore, it provides a means of accessing bingo games, which isn’t all that readily available, despite the boom in iGaming in recent years. All we hope is that we’re not seeing green once we’ve registered with this label, as the colours of the interface are somewhat nauseating.
If, like us, you attempted to view the promotions and found the page to be empty, don’t panic that New Look Bingo offers you nothing in the way of deals. For some reason, certain browsers behave differently with the site; although not a huge issue, it could put many potential customers off.
As for the offers we can eventually see, there’s your standard array of Cozy Games bonuses, such as the first deposit deal. According to the details given, players can allocate as little as £5 in order to receive a bonus match up. Sounds simple, right? Well, that isn’t quite the case, as in some areas of the info the minimum is said to be £5, while other times it’s £10. Furthermore, to get a full 100% bonus, you need to wager between £20 and £500. In regards to other terms, the details start to become less problematic, with the rollover necessity said to be x20 for slot based activities and x6 for bingo ones.
- Welcome offer: 100% first deposit bonus
- £3,000 Payday Jackpot offer
Combined with the newbie package is a selection of other deals, created to be used by those of you who have advanced to a regular member of New Look Bingo. Sometimes you’ll find there’s competitions to join in with, while for other promos, it’ll be a case of waiting for a specific day of the week. Take the £3,000 Payday Jackpot offer as an example, there to give you a bountiful helping of money after a hard working week. On rare occasions, you’ll even be able to join in with event specific bonuses, in which you can win trips to popular holidaymakers destinations.
Even in spite of the confusion at the beginning, it would seem that New Look Bingo has your back when it comes to regular rewards. That being said, we’re disappointed that no VIP and/or loyalty schemes have been implemented, especially considering how old this platform is.
Software and Games
Softwares: Cozy Games, NetEnt and Eyecon
As we take a look at the games now, we see that this website doesn’t just cater to one format of bingo but to several of them, such as 90 Ball and 30 Ball bingo. Even though you’d think this would be common place, many online sites can ignore certain forms of bingo, resulting in a less diverse experience. But not here. To explore all of the games, you need to enter specific rooms via the Bingo lobby, with a 90 Ball title inside the room of Big Ben, while City Hall gives 30 Ball games, and Penny Bingo offers 75 Ball. Please note that these are just three of the eight rooms available. Prices start from 1p per game.
But what of other activities? As New Look Bingo isn’t an online casino, it doesn’t have to cater to other types of players, and yet it does so. It delivers a decent array of scratchcards and one armed bandits, some of which can be played with your welcome bonus. Not every online bingo platform does this, but Cozy Games always ensures that everyone has a place at the iGaming table. And not just any seat, but ones adorned by Eyecon, NetEnt and Cozy Games own software.
Banking Options: Boku, Paysafecard, and PayPal
If you’ve taken a look at the collection of games and decided you want to have a quick wager, you’ll need to do so via one of the six payment methods permitted. New Look Bingo offers payments through Boku, Paysafecard, and PayPal, as well as three others, resulting in a rather narrow set of options. Even though we’d like to say this surprises us, given our past experiences with other sites from Cozy Games, we’ve come to expect these providers.
Assuming you’ve deposited cash and made some money back, you’ll need to withdraw your funds via the method you originally opted for. This should take two to three days, however it can take longer if the label demands more ID from you. Moreover, you can cancel a withdrawal, provided it’s done prior to it it going to processing, otherwise the transaction is irreversible. In reference to the amount you can take out on a weekly basis, that’s a reasonable £300 per account, with the only exception being large jackpot wins.
Due to this being a website that processes money, not forgetting that it also has an array of activities that need to be deemed fair, licensing needs to be in place. To play at an online games site without one is to take a huge risk. Luckily for everyone involved, New Look Bingo has a dual license, from the UK Gambling Commission and the Isle of Man Gambling Commission. Partnered together, these two governing bodies keep the security of the brand at the highest of standards.
Support and Contact Details
The FAQs are the first stop on the support networks list of options, but they’re by no means the last, as New Look Bingo provides email and live chat assistance as well. These services run 24 hours a day, seven days a week, ensuring that someone is always there to help you out of a tight spot. There’s even an option called raising a ticket, which works as on-site email support, with queries usually answered in under 10 minutes.
Our initial search of social media accounts led us to a Facebook page for this label. However, while there is a social channel to speak of, it’s one that hasn’t been posted on by a team member since July 2017. Consequently, we have to assume that it’s not an account regularly manned, if manned at all, and so we’d suggest to avoid contacting the support via this channel.
