Bingo Hombre is a relatively new site, founded in 2014 and joining Jumpman Gaming’s 15 Network, alongside Rocket Bingo and Cheers Bingo. This Mexican themed site looks set to impress, but will your actual experience be a spicy adventure or as prickly as a cactus?
Get ready to don your sombrero as Bingo Hombre has a brilliant Mexican theme, with a full-page background featuring a guitar playing cactus (perhaps that should be a ‘mariachi’?). There’s also an animated spinning wheel, a common fixture of Jumpman sites, plus some useful buttons for social media.
This site looks good and continues the theme on the promotions page. Little details like putting a moustache on the ends of the navigation bar make a big difference. The site is easy to use, but there are a few niggles such as a bland support page and a lot of pop-up pages.
You’ll find a help section at the top right of Bingo Hombre, with a stock template page which has a lot of text information but could do with being easier on the eye. Here you can reach the FAQ section which is pretty neatly arranged to help you solve common problems.
The contact methods available are phone support and email. A separate (and more nicely made) contact page reveals that the phone line is only open 9.30am to 6pm so it’s a shame live chat isn’t there to pick up the slack. They do however offer WhatsApp contact during the same hours, which may be useful if you use that app.
The promotions page at Bingo Hombre offers much the same as its sister bingo sites, but an effort has been made to give each one some themed artwork. The promotions are fun, such as a chance to win a takeaway (just the ticket for a night in on the bingo) and a party night with chat games. You’ll also find some guaranteed jackpots.
The welcome bonus has Jumpman’s signature wheel of fortune system, which gives a 200% bonus by default, plus a spin of the wheel. This can land you between £5 and £2500 extra, but note there is a standard 4x wagering requirement on this money.
Bingo Hombre has a fast loading lobby with a great desert background, keeping the vibe of the main site. You can easily reach account controls at the top, or go straight to banking. The bingo rooms are arranged by tabs and these could do with some artwork to spruce them up. The lobby will tell you where to find a host, too.
The bingo rooms are above average quality and look good, but could maybe use more of the screen space. You need to close mini games to get a proper chat window. Though chat rooms are not packed, we found them to be busy and the host was offering games. Could be a good time here if you can get people going.
There’s no mobile page at Bingo Hombre to explain the site’s functionality, but you can connect to the site by mobile or tablet just by using your device’s browser. This is pretty straightforward and should work for the vast majority of devices. There are no apps available.
The mobile site is a stock Jumpman site, which is very well made and easy to use, but a little light on features. It’s arguably better made for playing slots than bingo and the majority of the game selection from the desktop site seems to be available.
The only downside here is a slightly out-of-date security certificate for your incoming connection, but still actual transactions are fully secured with encryption.
There is a variety issue at Bingo Hombre as they only offer 90 ball and 75 ball bingo. There are just a few rooms for each, totalling eleven, though four of these are jackpot rooms and not always open. There is a free bingo room, then a second free bingo which is VIP only. The rooms aren’t Bingo Hombre themed and don’t really stand out.
On the plus side, there is an offer of daily free spins on Fluffy Favourites. The slot selection is broad but the games are not top end quality.
Visiting the cashier is easy at Bingo Hombre, with a simple form on the page. You should have no problems following the instructions. Withdrawals take at least 48 hours as standard, but you are warned that they can take up to 14 days to actually arrive!
This site is sorely limited in payment methods. They accept all the main debit and credit cards, but no pre-paid cards or e-wallets such as PayPal.
The VIP system here is a five-tier setup, with the first being a default member. You can rise up the ranks through Bronze to Black by depositing and wagering. The site does not reveal how much you need to spend to attain higher ranks, unfortunately.
Higher tiers gain higher re-load bonuses, cash back, birthday bonuses, mystery gifts and access to exclusive VIP games and jackpots (such as £500 monthly game). This sounds great, but more details would be nice. You can also gain and cash in loyalty points.
Bingo Hombre has a really nice design and it’s good that this isn’t just limited to the home page, but still the actual game offerings are quite bland. You can have a fun time here if you catch a chat party and the promotions are pretty fun, so give it a try if you’re happy to use a card payment method. This site won’t blow your mind, but you can settle in with your salsa dip for the night.
