What we recommend instead
Bingo VIP Club Verdict
Bingo VIP Club has attempted to build its entire brand around glitz and glamour, with it appearing to fit the bill in most departments. What’s holding the site back from being one of the very best around is its lack of creativity, as there just isn’t much within the Bingo VIP Club platform that jumps off the screen.
With some additional polish and some additional creativity, Bingo VIP Club could certainly become an online bingo brand to watch!
Design & Usability
Bingo VIP Club really does set its stall from the get go, as it quite literally rolls out the red carpet for members. Theme wise the site is based around stars, as everything here has an unmistakable glitz to it. While we certainly enjoy the theme, largely as it doesn’t take itself to seriously, it’s fair to say that the graphics used could do with some additional polish.
The actual layout of Bingo VIP Club is also worthy of praise, as it makes moving around the site a simple task. Through the stars at the top of the screen, any player can jump from page to page with relative ease, this also means that jumping in and out games is effortless too.
Software & Gameplay
Bingo VIP Club is a Cozy Games platform, so actual game quality and network performance isn’t likely to be an issue. To be honest, if you’ve played at any Cozy Games site in the past you’ll probably know what to expect here.
What helps separate this bingo brand from other Cozy Games’ branded sites is the fact that the active player numbers here remain consistently high. To see hundreds of players within a single room is not uncommon, with the bubbly chat moderators helping keep the atmosphere of the games light and upbeat.
Safety & Security
Safety and security is a department where Bingo VIP Club really does shine. This online bingo site doesn’t just have licensing from one major governing body; it actually has licensing from three. The United Kingdom Gambling Commission (UKGC), the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission (IoMGSC), and the Gibraltar Gaming Commission (GGC) have all certified that Bingo VIP Club is a reputable platform.
Fair play is a matter that is addressed within the on-site FAQ, while the site doesn’t submit to third party auditing, it does implement Random Number Generator (RNG) technology.
Payments & Withdrawals
Payments and withdrawals at Bingo VIP Club are basic at best, but to be honest we wouldn’t actually want it any other way. Through Visa, MasterCard, Solo, Maestro, Electron, Neteller, and Paysafecard you can easily move money around, while the withdrawal time is a snappy 3 days and under.
A lot of bingo sites seem to openly neglect customer support, but this isn’t the case with Bingo VIP Club. When you click the “Support” link, you’ll find that there are numerous ways in which you can contact the team. Through web ticket, live chat, phone, and email, 24/7 customer support is readily made available.
Turnaround times are noticeably quick, the support staff are knowledgeable in the product, and the service is generally on point, so Bingo VIP Club can certainly step in to help any play that is feeling the strain.
Bonuses & Promotions
While there is certainly plenty of choice on the promotions front at Bingo VIP Club, originality is clearly an issue, with the artwork used really not being on theme. That being said, the T&Cs of what’s made available are clear, as they allow every player to see what the “real deal” is before they claim any offer.
Breaking it down, there is enough on the bonuses and promotions front within Bingo VIP Club to keep you interested, but edge of your seat playing incentives are clearly missing.
Moving with the times, Bingo VIP Club is now available on mobile devices, specifically through iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. It’s a fairly generic web-app platform if we’re being honest, as it follows the already well-known Cozy Games template.
While we would have preferred a dedicated app (or even a bespoke mobile site), we can’t complain with what Bingo VIP Club offers on the mobile front, as it certainly does the job.
Variety & Originality
Originality may be something of an issue at Bingo VIP Club, but variety certainly isn’t. Bingo comes 30-ball, 50-ball, 75-ball, 80-ball, and 90-ball here, so from speed play to something a little more traditional, Bingo VIP Club appears to have it all.
Complimenting the bingo room selection is an array of slot and scratchcard games, which work to add a little spice to the proceedings. Overall, the game selection at Bingo VIP Club certainly isn’t perfect, but it is undeniably pretty good.
Loyalty & Rewards
Bingo VIP Club is loaded with glitz and glamour, so it’s a shock to see such a bland and boring loyalty programme in effect. Points are earned through deposits and games played, with there being four levels to progress through in Silver, Gold, VIP, and SVIP.
The disappointing thing is that the rewards at each level of the programme really don’t differ all that much, which means there is very little weight behind what’s offered here.
