On first inspection, 888 Bingo is a mighty confusing site. It’s not that it’s competing against a plethora of other gambling sites called 888 – it is, but that’s not the issue.
The confusion starts the moment you visit www.888bingo.com and are presented with a pop-up asking you if you meant to visit 888ladies.com. The short answer to that is “No, if I did I’d have entered 888ladies.com into my browser”.
Presumably the pop-up is triggered by session cookies that try to guess the gender of the visitor to the site – wrongly in this case. But, why can’t ladies play at 888 Bingo in any case? It seems a tad stereotypical to assume that the only place they’ll feel at home is on the pinker than pink 888ladies.com.
Regardless of your gender and colour preferences, when you banish the popup and land on 888 Bingo’s homepage proper, you’ll be greeted by a clean blue site with a logo that’s very reminiscent of the Co-op logo.
For the record, 888 Bingo isn’t part of the Co-operative group, but the pairs’ logos are uncannily similar. As a dedicated bingo site, 888 Bingo is all about championing the world’s favourite lottery-style game in its most popular 75 and 90-ball permutations.
888 Bingo is operated by Cassava Enterprises Limited, a well-known gaming firm who are based in Gibraltar. They operate a slew of online casinos and bingo websites including 888 Bingo and its aforementioned ladies’ counterpart. The site is operated in the UK by 888 UK Limited and it holds a license issued by the Great Britain Gambling Commission.
With £10 just for signing up, there’s every incentive to create an account with 888 Bingo and give the luck-based game a go. Unlike other gambling games, bingo has a reputation for being a sociable pastime, even when being played online.
The latest winners are broadcast on the site’s homepage and efforts have been made to give the place a community vibe, with virtual bingo rooms where players can mingle and do their thing while they wait for games to start.
Typically you shouldn’t have to wait long to start playing; at any given moment in time, you’ll be just minutes away from a game commencing in one of the bingo rooms. The homepage contains a bingo schedule enabling players to tell at a glance when the next game will commence.
888 Bingo offers a wide range of payment options, all secured by 128-bit encryption and a promise not to share customer data with third parties. British players can top up their account balance using credit or debit cards such as Visa, MasterCard and Maestro. Other options include Paysafecard, PayPal, Neteller and Entropay.
When it comes to cashing out, withdrawals take 48 hours to be processed. After that, expect funds to show up within 3-7 days depending on the method used.
While bingo veterans will have no trouble getting to grips with the 75 and 90-ball games offered by 888 Bingo, newcomers will have to learn the ropes. Admittedly, the learning curve is shallow, but there are still a few fundamentals to be mastered.
To assist new players in this respect, 888 Bingo has a complete playing guide that details the inner workings of the 75 and 90-ball games. There are also guidelines to using the chat facility – an essential part of any online bingo experience – and an FAQ that covers more technical topics including banking. While the help section to be found at 888 Bingo is comprehensive, email support is available should you require assistance.
If you’re a serious bingo devotee, it pays to entrust 888 Bingo with your custom. Thanks to the site’s loyalty scheme, there are perks to be enjoyed from playing regularly, with each month providing a new opportunity to climb up the ranks and reap the rewards along the way. Loyalty levels are set out as follows: Bingo Rookie, Bingo Pro, Bingo Master and Bingo Champ.
For every £1 you deposit you’ll receive 12 jewels. Surpass 600 jewels and you’ll become a Bingo Master, rising to Bingo Champ once you hit the 2,400 mark.
To welcome you to 888 Bingo, the site will grant all new players a 500% deposit match when you deposit £10. Thereafter, loyal players can expect to receive cashback and VIP services. Monthly cashback will range from 5-15%, starting at Pro level, while the top two tiers will also receive games bonus cashback of 5-10%.
Other perks include free spins and free tickets to the big £10k game; Pro members will receive 2 tickets worth £20, while Champs will receive 10 tickets every single month.
One of the reasons why bingo is so popular, even with non-traditional gamblers – i.e women – is that it’s as much about having fun and socialising as it is about winning. Naturally, everyone dreams of calling “House!” in the big weekly game, but the rest of the time, it’s more about indulging in a few low-stakes games in a relaxed environment.
At 888 Bingo, you don’t even need to spend a penny to enter some of its bingo games. Provided you’ve made a deposit that week, you can enter the daily free games.
Every 8 minutes, between 9am and 6pm, there’s Quids In, whose £1 jackpot is a sign that it’s all about the taking part rather than the winning – but don’t let the modest sum stop you from trying. More enticing is the daily Freebie game which starts at 8pm and has a £35 jackpot.
On The House has a £10 jackpot and runs every 15 minutes during the day and Freemium kicks off at 8pm on a Friday with a £150 jackpot. There are minimum deposit requirements to play some of these games; in the case of the latter, you’ll need to have deposited at least £100 in the past week.
While bingo attracts a more casual crowd than the average casino, there’s still some major money to be won. 888 Bingo publishes a list of its recent winners, with the site updated daily to show the latest players to have triumphed. This incentivises the site’s players and also gives some evidence of the genuine sums that can be won playing 75 and 90-ball bingo.
With daily winnings that average around the £500,000 mark, there’s a lot of money sloshing around in 888 Bingo.
In addition to publishing the previous day’s biggest winners, there are also sections dedicated to lucky new players, scratch card winners and a list of the site’s most popular bingo games. 90 Ball Bingo occupies the top spot, but other contenders include Coverall, Pound Sign, Sun, Boot and Pina Colada.
888 Bingo is a well-designed bingo site where British-based players can indulge their favourite 75 and 90-ball bingo games at their leisure. There’s a generous welcome bonus, a range of high and low stakes games and enough promotions to keep things fresh and to keep bingo devotees returning for more.
