Vampire Bingo Review
Online since: 2012
Welcome Bonus: Deposits of £15 get a 67% bonus
Even though vampires, ghouls and goblins belong in fantasies and horror stories, Vampire Bingo takes on an approach that’s less scary and more cheery. Its wonderfully purple interface shows no signs of monstrous fangs, though it has a real bite for wanting to deliver a range of widely acclaimed games. When we take a look at its operators, ElectraWorks, and their partners, Cozy Games, it soon becomes clear as to why over 200 titles are available to real cash players. Despite not looking a seasoned brand, this site was launched in 2012, having been independently tested for safety, as well as having become part of the Live Bingo Network. There’s a lot more here than Vampire Bingo’s respected linage, and so we’ll move onto its services, starting first with the bonuses offered.
If you’ve been following the numerous deals that Cozy Games websites deliver to users, you’ll either be expecting a rare newly designed promotion, or you’ll know to be prepared for the usual set of promotions. Unfortunately, it’s better to have been ready for tried and tested bonuses, as that’s what’s given by Vampire Bingo, starting with the deposit bonus for first time allocations.
This input of money can be as low as £10, but users should note that this sum will only yield a 50% deposit bonus, while deposits of £15 get a 67% bonus, and those at the £20 mark and above will be gifted the full 100% bonus. Not forgetting that there’ll be a credit of 20 free spins, for the Fluffy Favourites slot machine, when depositing such a sum of money. We find it both fair and unfair that these varying amounts are given, as it means that budget gamers are penalised and therefore don’t obtain the same rewards as others. But, at the same time, it seems fair that those able to deposit more should receive a higher return. Regardless of your feelings, the rollover necessity remains the same, with gamers needing to meet the x4 term prior to withdrawing cash, as well as an additional x40 for those who receive the bonus spins.
Accompanying this, there’s the Fortune Wheel deal, in which you can spin a prize bestowing wheel for several days straight, provided you’ve logged into your account on a daily basis and have deposited £10 within the last seven days. It’s a bonus that can throw up lots of different outcomes, however the rules of earning those prizes, which include free bingo tickets, always remain the same. Other such deals existence, in so much as you need to repeat the same actions time and again, like with the Night Owls offer that takes place every night, inside the Victoria 90 Room, from 12am.
Games and Software
Seeing as we just mentioned one of the room based deals (Night Owls), it seems only fitting to discuss the range of bingo halls you can visit, as well as the types of bingo they provide. Inside the Bingo Lobby, customers will discover eight separate rooms, delivering either 90, 80, 75 or 30 ball bingo, with quirky names like Big Ben, Victoria 90, and Penny Bingo.
These rooms are the same across all the Cozy Games software sites, and so you should feel right at home if you’re a regular user. Should you not be familiar however, these rooms cost mere pennies, while also providing a means to score some high value payouts. When ready to start a game, you’ll be able to see how long until the next round and whether a game is already in play, with you then able to prebuy tickets. It’s an effective yet simple system.
But what else does Vampire Bingo give to us? Well, going off of its name alone, you wouldn’t expect a site such as this to provide pokies, scratchcards, mini games, and table top activities, but that’s what it does. Better still, these titles come from NetEnt and Eyecon, two software giants that don’t really need any praise from us, as their works speak for themselves. You won’t find every single game ever made by either upon Vampire Bingo’s webpages, but a fair amount of their popular titles have made it.
No matter your banking preferences, be them ewallets like Skrill and Neteller, or debit/credit cards like Visa, you’ll be able to bank your cash with relative ease. Of course, we’d be lying in saying that Vampire Bingo delivers the most varied set of payment options, but in truth, few websites ever do. All in all, you get enough range to ensure that most players can deposit and withdraw without much fuss, with the money being processed in either GBP or EUR.
As for all the other elements that go with banking, we found no banking charges brought against us, nor did we find the policies difficult to understand; deposits need at least £10, while withdrawals require a meeting of bonus wagering requirements. To help you follow your progress in this particular matter, your account will display a progress bar, and so you shouldn’t ever be left in the dark about this side of banking. And then once you’ve met all the terms, you need only wait three days for your withdrawal to be processed, with the option to cancel this transaction should you change your mind.
Given the fact that this is, primarily, a European focused iGaming platform, it’ll surprise no one to see a dual license coming from the UK Gambling Commission and the Government of Gibraltar.
Support and Contact Details
As much as we dislike thinking we’ll eventually need help, it’s more than likely that we will, and so knowing how to deal with that is a must with a site like Vampire Bingo. Customers will be able to read through the thorough, yet user friendly, FAQs and game guide walkthroughs, as well accessing the Contact Us page. We’d suggest using the contact services if the previous resources have failed to assist you.
These services run 24/7, with a team member always ready to respond, coming from either live chat, emails, ticket systems, and help over the phone. Only one of these services requires you to sign in – the ticket one – due to it being connected to your account and therefore all your account details.
When it comes to social media, Vampire Bingo appears to be active, given the fact that it links to both a Facebook and Twitter account. However, these aren’t brand specific channels but those related to the Live Bingo Network that this site is a part of. What that means is that these channels will post about all its other bino platforms, as well as Vampire Bingo, which some of you may not want. Consequently, we’d say that while social channels are available, they aren’t solely for Vampire Bingo, and so this site isn’t as social media friendly as it seems.
