Wish Bingo Review
Online since: 2014
We’ve all heard the notion that wishes are a dream your heart makes, as well as other such sentiments, but we have yet to learn what happens when wishes take control of an iGaming site. Wish Bingo is an online platform brought to you by a subsidiary of Cassava Enterprises, a subsection of the infamous 888 Group, a name we all know to be synonymous with this industry. Alongside this impressive heritage, there’s also the fact that Wish Bingo is part of the Ignite Bingo Network, as well utilising Dragonfish software, with these two such details adding further prominence to the online experience awaiting users.
Promotions at Wish Bingo
In our efforts to locate the promotions, we discovered a site that has the potential to bestow upon its customers a wealth of rewards. However, for you to appreciate such a sight for sore eyes, you’ll need to be willing to sign up, as without doing so will mean you fail to gain access to the main site. It’s a design feature we don’t care for, but at least it does one good deed in that it points you to the first part of the welcome bonus.
- Welcome offer: 250% deposit bonus
- Second deposit bonus worth 150%
- Diamond Club
All players who have yet to make a real cash deposit, will be able to qualify for the 250% bonus match, which requires a minimum amount of £5. This promo is free of promotional codes, needing you to only be confident enough to transfer that money into your account, with the maximum bonus available being £50. Of course, while this is a decent enough offering, it comes with its fair share of terms, such as you only being able to use this extra cash on bingo titles, and that you need to meet the x4 bingo wagering requirement if you’re to withdraw funds. All in all, it’s standard information that the majority of us have encountered before.
The same can be said of the next set of deposit bonuses, also designed for those of you are still relatively new to Wish Bingo, such as the second deposit bonus worth 150%. Even though this is a cash based reward, it’s one that asks that you now utilise a promo code if you’re to reap its benefits. More of the same can be found from the remaining deals, as well as room based activities that give you a unique advantage to some of the bingo titles played. There is also the Diamond Club to take advantage of, should you be keen on proving your loyalty to Wish Bingo; it works on a levels system, with you needing to collect points in order to move up the ranks. Again, this is pretty typical of a bingo website.
Games and Software
Softwares: Cozy Games, Eyecon, IGT and Microgaming
As for the games, they’re found split into two factions, with bingo being the first port of call, while the other section presents an array of slot machines and mini games. In spite of the fact that Dragonfish is seen as the software provider, there’s also other brands involved here, such as Eyecon, IGT and Microgaming, to name but three of the several listed. For such a small website, we find the selection of software developers on display quite impressive, especially when compared with rivals such as Cozy Games.
The online pokies and such can be found within the Slots section, with the titles laid out in a similar fashion to any online casino. As far as we’re aware, there’s no freeplay versions of these activities to play, or at least not without you being a member. But what of the bingo rooms? Well, unlike the slots, we can assure you that there’s a free bingo room to buy tickets for, as well as an exclusive VIP hub, and even a five line bingo offering. Although there’s a few variations of bingo to be found inside Wish Bingo, we’d like to reinforce the fact that this site primarily caters to 75 and 90 ball bingo.
To enter into the games, tickets need to be purchased, with the rooms in which they take place functioning like virtual bingo halls – you an even chat to other players when playing. Most of the titles are cheap to play, therefore ensuring that all walks of customers are able to play the delights of this label.
Banking options: Visa, Paysafecard, Boku
When making a deposit and/or withdrawal, the same means of payment are allowed, including that of Paysafecard, Boku, over the phone, and Visa, as well as the others found inside the table upon the Banking page. Each one of these providers has their obvious set of pros and cons, with wire transfer being one of the longest forms of payment to process, and so it’s wise to read up on each of them before diving in.
All of your banking can be done in either EUR or GBP, with your chosen currency for depositing then being utilised when making a withdrawal. What is more, an amount of £5 is necessary in order to make both a withdrawal and deposit, therefore keeping the rules of use simple and easy to remember. However, when it comes to withdrawals, they’ll take much longer to process, with the total number of days needed being as many as 10. To see how each one of the payment methods fare, there’s another table of transaction times found within the Banking section, further down the page.
Should you be ready to join Wish Bingo but are worried of its legal credentials, aka licensing, there’s no need to be, as Cassava Enterprises has a dual license from the UK Gambling Commission and the Government of Gibraltar.
Support and Contact Details
Continuing onto the support systems now, we find that Wish Bingo provides an adequate means of accessing assistance if and when you need it, chiefly through email, live chat and telephone. However, some of these services aren’t provided in the conventional sense, such as the live chat, which is actually set up inside some of the bingo rooms, a bit like an old fashioned 90s chat room. Moreover, the phone lines are only operated until 2am each day, thus meaning users will be without 24 hour help. In addition to this, we also need to mention that only UK calls are toll free, whereas international calls will be set at their standard rates.
Despite the fact that Wish Bingo provides few clues to them actually being live on any social platform, this brand does in fact have a Facebook page. Perhaps it’s hidden from anyone that isn’t a member, but either way, the lack of prominent advertisement suggests to us that their social media channels aren’t of great concern to Wish Bingo. A suspicion seemingly backed up by the lack of regular posts on said Facebook page.
