Bingo Ballroom Verdict
Bingo Ballroom has a very fun intro page, with the bingo glitter balls being a nice touch. However, this is a site where everything past the home page is just a stock template. On the plus side, the standard of games and promotions is high here and the community is active, so you’re guaranteed a fun night.
Design & Usability
A ballroom blitz awaits you at Bingo Ballroom, thanks to a really bright and glitzy site design. The site has a full-page background featuring a ballroom with bingo ball dancers and bingo ball glitter balls, a fun image which is used in a few places.
The site is fairly slim and yet never feels crowded, with all the pages neatly fitting into the centre. Finding your way around is pretty easy, thanks to a very straightforward site, apart from one issue with the contact page being a little buried.
Software & Gameplay
You get a good quality game here thanks to Dragonfish software. This loads pretty fast and presents you with a nice-looking lobby, with a bespoke background. You can see your account info on the left, including controls for sound and preferences.
The bingo rooms look smart and again you have clear access to your controls, plus the game itself is easy to follow. They give plenty of room for chat. Bingo Ballroom has a pretty active community, with plenty of chatters in the evenings. There’s no shortage of hosts and you will find games.
Safety & Security
Bingo Ballroom is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and Gibraltar government. You also get the peace of mind of the eCOGRA certificate, which means that the site has been tested for fairness by an independent body.
The site also has encryption to protect your details and a secure connection when you make transactions. Last but not least, they make some effort to inform players about responsible gambling.
Payments & Withdrawals
The choice of payment methods here is very good. You can of course use a credit or debit card, which you can do online or by phone. You can make a wire transfer or use PaySafeCard, EntroPay, PayPal or Neteller. Altogether that’s most users covered.
Depositing is easy thanks to a set of clear forms to fill in. Withdrawing should take just over average at 4-7 days for cards.
Bingo Ballroom has the annoying tendency of many Cassava bingo sites to have a very helpful help section at the top right, but not include any contact information. You can read some useful guides and this is good information for beginners, but to contact the site you need to use a separate help page at the bottom.
There you’ll find an email and a phone number. This is toll free in the UK and open 24/7 which is good to see. On the downside, it’s necessary because the site does not have live chat. They do have a backup in the form of a help room within chat.
Bonuses & Promotions
Promotions are good here but sadly not original, or themed to Bingo Ballroom. You have some big bingo jackpots and the offers update monthly. Weekends have real money prizes up for grabs and there are chat events with bingo jackpots, which should be great fun.
The welcome bonus here is a nice 200%, plus a 100% bonus for slots. You can get up to £105, but this is split between cash for bingo and cash for other games. The bingo bonus requires 4x wagering before you can withdraw, the slot bonus requires 80x. Not ideal.
Bingo Ballroom does not have any apps, nor is there a page on site to tell you about their mobile functionality. You can access the site by visiting on your mobile or tablet browser, which should work for most devices.
The mobile site has a Bingo Ballroom logo, but after that it’s just a generic template. That being said, it’s a very good mobile site and runs like a dream. The bingo looks good and features a full-sized chat window.
Variety & Originality
You get a pretty standard Cassava game set here, which includes a handful of 90 ball and 75 ball rooms, plus a 5-line game. The variety within these is good and there are rooms for special jackpots, including link games on certain days. You’ll also find four free rooms, which are very popular. The Wow room is interesting as you can win free spins on slot games.
When it comes to slots you get a lot of choice, plus some very pretty games like Wild Wolf. All in all the selection is good and should hold your interest, though it isn’t tailored to this site.
Loyalty & Rewards
Bingo Ballroom has a clear loyalty plan which works around a four-tier system. You start as a rookie and move to Pro as soon as you make a deposit. A £1 deposit earns you 12 jewels and you need 600 to get to the third tier.
Higher tiers grant you bingo cashback, slot cashback, free tickets to big jackpot bingo and free spins on slots. There are also several free bingo games to join. This system is not exactly luxurious but it is generous and transparent.
