What we recommend instead
Bingo Loopy Verdict
All-in-all, Bingo Loopy is a top-notch bingo site with a great deal of gaming choices, promotions, freebies, and jackpot games. However, the lack of a proper loyalty/VIP programme means that Loopy fails to outdo other popular UK bingo sites.
Design & Usability
The Bingo Loopy website oozes fun, particularly as its logo replaces the “OO” of “Loopy” with a pair of googly eyes. The colour scheme sensibly includes both pink and blue, which we assume is to make it appear both male and female-friendly, and the main banner rotates at a comfortable pace through Loopy’s highlights such as the Free Bingo Room, the welcome bonus, the weekly TGI £5k jackpot game, and the Bingo Studio Live Room.
Along the top of the page, there’s a concise menu that includes Home, Bingo, Games, Promotions, and Help, and above it, there’s a quick launch button for the Live Help facility and areas where you can register or log-in.
The Latest Winners list is updated with the most recent prizes won by members of the site, no matter how big or small, and you can browse the games lobby at your leisure using the five categories provided (Featured, Slots, Jackpot Slots, Table Games, and Instant Wins).
Software & Gameplay
Bingo Loopy runs on Bede Gaming software. The games load in a separate window, and you can easily change rooms using the “Rooms” button at the top of the screen. You can also play mini-games while playing bingo, and chat to other players using the chat window. The rooms are relatively busy and the chat hosts are always active.
Safety & Security
Bingo Loopy is regulated and licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, as well as the Alderney Gambling Control Commission. SSL technology safely encrypts sensitive data and an RNG ensures that the games are fair.
Payments & Withdrawals
The available banking methods are Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, Skrill, Neteller, Paysafecard, and Ukash, and withdrawals take between three and five days to be processed.
Our only criticisms of Loopy’s customer support are that it’s not 24/7, nor does it provide a telephone number. It does, however, let you get help via email or live chat between 8 AM and midnight from Monday to Sunday.
Bonuses & Promotions
The main promotion of interest to newcomers is the welcome package which offers you 100% extra on your first deposit of £10 or more, up to a maximum of £50. By making your first deposit, you’ll receive an invitation to play in the private Free Bingo Room, and if you deposit £30 or above, you’ll also gain entry to the VIP Room the following Tuesday and Wednesday. The welcome bonus comes with 4x wagering requirements, which we feel is acceptable.
There are lots of other promotions to keep you entertained 24/7. At the time of writing, Bingo Loopy is running two holiday competitions where slots and roulette fans have the chance to win a trip to Macau or Monaco. In addition, there are weekend free spins and cashback deals, a weekly TGI £5k game, Big Link Bingo games, daily deals, happy hours, Pick a Box games which award extra bingo bonus or cash prizes, free and BOGOF games, chat games, and Grand Prix Bingo competitions.
What’s particularly good about the offers at Bingo Loopy is that most of them are unique, and are not shared with its sister sites such as Pink Casino and Bingo Godz.
The Bingo Loopy website is compatible with tablets and smartphones, and all of the bingo rooms are available with the exception of the Bingo Studio Live Room. You can also play a wealth of slots, including Gonzo’s Quest, Starburst, and Rainbow Riches, as well as pre-buy bingo cards for upcoming jackpot games.
Variety & Originality
There are seven bingo rooms to choose from that run 90-ball, 75-ball, and speed bingo games throughout the day and night. The main attraction is the Bingo Studio Live room which is a live entertainment show with interactive bingo games that opens between 6 PM and midnight daily.
The slots and tables games are provided by famous names like Microgaming, NetEnt, IGT, and Scientific Games, and there are thirteen progressive jackpot slots to choose from, as well as almost thirty casino games, including live dealer tables from Evolution Gaming and video poker.
Loyalty & Rewards
Bingo Loopy doesn’t offer a loyalty programme, but it does have a VIP bingo room that you can play in each time you deposit £30 or more to your account on selected dates. The winners of each VIP game get a £70 bingo bonus.
