Bite Size Bingo is a member of Jumpman Gaming’s 15 Network, and as such it shares many common features with other online bingo brands such as Fever, Barbados, Charming, Carlton Bingo, and Dove Bingo. For example, rewards are offered to new customers and re-depositors via Jumpman’s Mega Reel game of chance. There’s a VIP scheme that offers cashback, free spins, and birthday bonuses, plus a trophies system that allows players to collect trophies as they complete different tasks. On top of the site’s bingo rooms, there are over 450 slots and casual games. But, does Bite Size Bingo offer enough to make you want to take a bite of it?
Bite Size Bingo is a smartly dressed online bingo site that makes an effort to not appear overly feminine. Its unusual purple-and-orange colour scheme is both appealing to look at and interesting, and although the brand logo isn’t anything special, the centrally-placed image of the Mega Reel game spinning on a player’s mobile phone in the middle of a grand hallway pulls you in for a closer look.
There are just three tabs on the main menu which makes it easier to find what you’re looking for, and you can “LOG IN” or “JOIN NOW” by clicking the respective buttons at the top of the page.
The remainder of the homepage contains a list of the most popular slots and bingo games, an introduction to the site, and a list of the recent biggest winners.
The only two support methods that Bite Size Bingo offers are live chat and email. Sadly, the live chat service is only in operation when most people are at work (N.B., between 9.30 AM and 6 PM from Monday to Friday), so we can imagine that some players may find this frustrating.
Like other sites on the 15 Network, Bite Size Bingo uses its exclusive Mega Reel game instead of a welcome bonus. Although it’s entirely possible that you could win a pretty tasty prize while spinning it (N.B., you’ll need to make an initial qualifying deposit of £10 or more), including Amazon vouchers or up to five hundred free spins, you’re not guaranteed to win a prize as the Mega Reel is a game of chance. And, if you do score some free spins, you’ll need to play through any winnings a lofty 65x before you can convert a maximum of £250 to your real cash balance.
The Jumpman Gaming software that Bite Size Bingo runs on is quick and also simple to use, both of which work in its favour. On the downside, there are only a handful of online bingo rooms which are also restricted by limited opening hours. There do not appear to be any chat hosts and neither is chat window particularly lively. Also, only 90-ball and 75-ball variants can be played. So, if you’re here mainly for the bingo, you may want to look elsewhere.
Jumpman Gaming bingo sites are designed to work across many different platforms. So, whether you plan on playing on your laptop, desktop, tablet or mobile phone, all you need is a compatible web browser and a working internet connection.
Bite Size Bingo is dually licensed by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission and the UK Gambling Commission. The operator advertises the fact that its Random Number Generator is tested and approved by SQS, and both a secure URL and SSL encryption are in place.
As Bite Size Bingo belongs to the 15 Network, it offers the same range of games and special offers as all of the other sites on the network. A major downside is the lack of bingo rooms and variants. Only 90-ball and 75-ball games are offered, and of the five bingo rooms, none of them open 24/7.
On the plus side, there’s a very good collection of slots and instant games which you can either play independently in your browser window or as side games in the bingo rooms.
Examples of these include European Roulette, Lucky Links, Goldwyn’s Fairies, The Wild Chase, Fluffy Favourites Fairground, Starburst, Wolf Hunters, Bonanza, Heartburst, Agent Jane Blonde, Boss the Lotto, and Blackjack.
Visa, Maestro, MasterCard, Paypal, Pay by Mobile, and Paysafecard are the only banking options that you can choose from. You can top up your account with amounts of £5 or more, but if you wish to withdraw funds, you’ll need to meet the minimum withdrawal requirement of £30.
Withdrawal processing times are between three to five days.
The Bite Size Bingo VIP scheme consists of five tiers – Member, Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Black.
Entry to each level is achieved by collecting Kudos at the rate of 1 Kudos per £1 deposited.
The rewards that are on offer to VIPs include weekly cashback (between 1% and 10%), free spins (between 5 and 20), and birthday bonuses.
However, it’s disappointing to see that the minimum monthly wagering requirements that members must meet in order to retain their current VIP level are considerably high for an online bingo site. For example, VIPs and Legends must spend £5,000 and £20,000 respectively.
The biggest issue that we have with Bite Size Bingo is the lack of bingo rooms and games. In comparison, the casino section of the lobby is primed with popular slots, table games, and instants. As Bite Size is still a relatively new addition to the 15 Network, only time will tell if more players will enter its doors and make it a bit more lively.
