Velvet Bingo Review
Online since: 2013
Welcome Bonus: Up to £3,000 Welcome Offer: 12 game tickets in Newbie Bingo Room
The plush texture of Velvet is a sensation you either love or hate, with you choosing to adorn your home with it or resigning it to the scrapheap. But what if you could bring it into your home without having to touch it? Now that would be something else. And it’s exactly what Velvet Bingo offers you, with the added perk of bingo games included. Having been established in 2013, this is one of Cozy Games older brands, though it’s still one that’s part of the Live Bingo Network. What this means is that you can be sure of its authenticity should you decide to become a member. Awash with deep crimson red details and a 1940s female character, this appears to be a site geared up for female players rather than male ones.
If you’ve been reading our reviews, you’ll know that Cozy Games is a company we know quite well, having looked at their other labels. As such, you’ll likely be prepared to see a mixed bag of promotions, delivering fun tasks, fancy trips abroad, and newcomer packages for those just joining.
There’s a deposit bonus available alongside the one we’re about to discuss, but as it’s the deal most talked about, we wanted to take a different approach. We wanted to bring another promotion into the spotlight. The £3,000 Welcome Offer is available for your first seven days of opening an account, with you needing to visit the Newbie Bingo Room in order to activate it. Once there, you’ll be able to receive 12 game tickets, free of charge. Any winnings you make from these free games will be subject to a x12 wagering requirement, which although an unpleasant reality, is still low when compared with casino rollovers.
- Up to £3,000 Welcome Offer: 12 game tickets in Newbie Bingo Room
- Chance to win up to £50, free bingo tickets with Fortune Wheel
- Prize Room offer
Now that you’re a fully fledged member, other bonuses can be utilised, with you able to take advantage of the new and improved Fortune Wheel. This colourful rainbow of deals can be spun once a day, with the only catch being that you need to have deposited at least £10 within the last month. If it sounds easy, that’s because it is. The bonuses you can win include cash prizes of up to £50, as well as free bingo tickets. Just remember that any bonus monies earned are going to come with another set of wagering requirements, only this time the totals will be x8 for bingo games and x20 for pokies.
Even though there’s no VIP to speak of, Velvet Bingo does offer what’s known as the Prize Room, a sort of special event that takes place every Wednesday. To enter into this prize draw, simply allocate a £10 deposit before 12pm Tuesday and you’ll be gifted a Golden Ticket. Obviously, the more you wager, the more likely you are to win as you’ll be given more tickets to enter with.
Software and Games
Softwares: Cozy Games, NetEnt and Eyecon
If you’re on a tight budget but are desperate to play some bingo, be that in whichever format, Velvet Bingo can do that thanks to its low pay-ins. Games can start from 1p per game, with multiple rooms ready to receive new players – you can play 90 Ball Big Ben, 90 Ball Midweek Treat, alongside 30 Ball City Hall, and there’s still some others after that. With each of the games, there’s a standard prize and a generous jackpot, with the latter bringing in thousands of pounds. All players wishing to join can choose to prebuy a ticket, or join in with a game already underway, no hassle, no fuss.
Alongside these games, there’s also a handful of casino, slots, and scratchcards for you to peruse, possibly even join in on. These titles come from Cozy Games itself, as well as the likes of NetEnt and Eyecon; these tend to be the software developers used at all Cozy Games operated sites. While we’re impressed by the range given, even more so when taking into account that this isn’t an online casino, we’re sad to see no freeplays offered. What this means, above all else, is that cash players are the main focus of this label.
Banking Options: Visa, PayPal and UKash
Ewallets and credit/debit cards are how you’re going to move your money about, with Visa, PayPal and UKash being three of the small list Velvet Bingo details. These methods have been seen plenty of times over, with us undoubtedly sounding like a broken record, however it’s important for us to be clear on the limitations of banking. For some of you, having such a small selection of options will be problematic.
In one month, customers can withdraw up to £5,000 per account, with no charges applied to such transactions, or at least not by Velvet Bingo itself. All withdrawals tend to be dealt with in under three days, however sometimes processing can take up to seven.
Just as vital to the website as banking, we turn our attention to licensing now, with us noting that two of them are currently in place. Due to the experienced nature of the operators, these licenses have been in action since before the release of Velvet Bingo, back in 2012. They’re still going strong to this date, with the UK Gambling Commission and the Isle of Man Gambling Commission always on top of safety and fairness.
Support and Contact Details
It goes without saying that FAQs should be used prior to contacting the team, simply because it may be a minor issue that you can straighten out yourselves. However, if that proves ineffective, you can contact support by using live chat, raising a ticket, and email. There is a fax number also, but this is used mainly to send documents over to the team for withdrawals and such. Each of the support options mentioned are open 24/7.
Sporting over 800 likes on its Facebook page, Velvet Bingo is by far one of the most active labels we’ve seen from Cozy Games. This is especially true when you look at their most recent post, which dates back to the start of 2018. If nothing else, it shows that this brand is attempting to keep up with the demands of its followers/customers.
