Silk Bingo Review

Silk Bingo is a simple, no-frills site, one that gets down to business straight away, allowing you to get on with playing bingo with no messing around. Decked out in shades of red and gold, there’s a Christmas feel to Silk Bingo. Win one of its big bingo jackpots and it’ll beat any Christmas Day you’ve ever had. If you’re scrutinising this site from the top down, the first thing you’ll alight upon its its social logos because they’re positioned prominently in the header.

This is always a fun game to play. Do we think Silk Bingo is the sort of place that maintains its Google+, Twitter and Facebook or is its bingo community dead and buried? Let’s find out. Technically these are ‘only’ social channels but you can tell a lot about a site and its attitude to its customers by the time it lavishes on social media. The Google+? Last updated in 2014. The Twitter? Last updated in 2015. The Facebook? Last updated in 2010. Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear.

About Silk Bingo

Silk Bingo is operated by Cassava Enterprises Limited – or at least it was back when they bothered themselves with operating it. This site clearly hasn’t seen any love in some time. Sure, the updated copyright notice in the footer has the name of the current year on it, but there’s nothing current about this site. Silk Bingo bills itself as “the #1 UK site for online bingo players who love gorgeous jackpots”. Sure. Next they’ll be claiming to have the UK’s most active and vibrant bingo community on social media.

Cassava Enterprises who run – or ran – the show are based in Gibraltar and licensed and regulated by the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner. The site’s UK services are administered by 888 UK Limited who are licensed and regulated by the Great Britain Gambling Commission. Virtual Digital Services Ltd perform the same role for customers based in the European Union. In the footer of the homepage, there are a series of dated looking icons that big up Silk Bingo’s no download model, fast cashouts, 24/7 support and 95% real payout.

Silky Smooth Banking?

When you click on the link labelled Banking, you’d expect to be taken to a banking page. You know; one that’s readable and which looks like a normal web page, replete with legible information about deposit and withdrawal amounts. Instead you’ll be taken to a page crammed with smallprint and virtually impossible to read. Despite how user-unfriendly this is, it’s arguably still better than most Cassava Enterprises banking pages, which simply don’t exist.

If you can find the patience and the willpower to sift through several thousand words of smallprint, you will eventually discover that your options include credit card such as Visa and MasterCard, Neteller, Paysafecard, Ukash and PayPal. Withdrawal requests probably take 48 hours to be processed – there will be a definitive answer somewhere in the terms and conditions, but no one wants to have to wade through that, so let’s just guess.

Silk Bingo’s Bonuses

The primary welcome bonus at Silk Bingo involves depositing £10 and receiving a 400% bonus match giving you £50 to play with. The most bonus cash you can claim in conjunction with this offer is £80 (when you deposit £20), with some of the cash split between bingo and the rest allocated to slots. There’s a 3x playthrough requirement before cash can be withdrawn. On the promotions page at Silk Bingo you’ll find other bonuses such as the £777 jackpot, which operates every evening. There’s also The Grand 55, a bingo game in which there’s £55,000 to be won.

If you’re anticipating becoming a regular player at Silk Bingo – stranger things have happened – then you’ll want to explore the site’s loyalty scheme. It’s described as “Our New Diamond Club” but there’s nothing new about it whatsoever because this site is never updated, remember? There are various tiers to it, with players leveling up to become Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald and Diamond, along the way earning additional bonuses, 15% cashback, a boosted bankroll, VIP games and VIP gifts. It all looks very tacky and unrefined, but if you’re interested, at least now you know.

Bingo Blank!

If you’re wondering where the bingo page is at Silk Bingo, the short answer is there isn’t one. The longer answer is that if you scroll all the way to the bottom of the page, you’ll find around a dozen bingo links, but they all lead to blank pages. Is this because you have to be logged in to access these features or simply because Silk Bingo hasn’t been updated in forever? It’s hard to tell. There are over 120 games to be played at the site apparently, bingo included, but this isn’t big on detail. It can be confirmed however that 75-ball and 90-ball bingo are the two types of bingo offered here.

Based on this knowledge and the fact that this is a Cassava Enterprises site, the following information can be assumed to be true, for in the details, their sites are all the same – only the themes are updated. Tickets for the bingo games available at Silk Bingo will cost between 1p and £1 depending on the value of the jackpot at stake. It’s hard to say with any degree of certainty how many fellow players you’re likely to encounter on the site. It’s a grim and badly outdated site after all, and yet it presumably must bring in some kind of custom other its operators would have pulled the plug by now. Wouldn’t they?

The Slots and More

In term of non-bingo games, you’ll find the usual suspects at Silk Bingo, the sort of slots that have guested at hundreds and possibly even thousands of Cassava Enterprises sites. This includes such obligatory games as Fluffy Favourites and Cleopatra. It’s safe to assume that other titles may include Shaman’s Dream, Gonzo’s Quest and Jack and the Beanstalk. There are scratch cards and mini games available at Silk Bingo too including the likes of Hollywood Stars and X Factor. Again, these are the same games as you’ll find at all Cassava Enterprises sites.

Silk Bingo Conclusion

What is the deal with continuing to keep bingo sites alive well past their sell by date? Silk Bingo either needs updated or put out of its misery. It’s a sorry looking site, its social channels especially, with some serious tumbleweed blowing past. God knows when this site was last updated but suffice to say that if you’re interested in playing bingo, you should definitely take your custom elsewhere.

The promotions are passable, the bingo page is non-existent, the banking page is a total mess and the games aren’t great either. All told, you’ll be doing well to have a fun time playing at Silk Bingo, even with the best will in the world.
