What we recommend instead
BOGOF Bingo Verdict
BOGOF Bingo is a good site that’s made noticeable improvements since it was last on the scene and would be a good fit for players who enjoy both bingo and slots equally. Being a new site, there are a couple of adjustments that would make it even better, but it’ll be exciting to see how it evolves. For now, however, it’s definitely an option worth considering.
Design & Usability
The revamped BOGOF Bingo site looks and feels fairly different to the previous incarnation, and is generally pretty easy to find your way around – and it looks decent too. The charcoal, yellow and white colour scheme is stylish without sacrificing usability, and it’s not difficult to get from slots to bingo to FAQs, for example. You can use the search bar to find particular games you’re looking for, or search for new or popular games, but a more advanced search function would be better; you can’t filter games by provider or alphabetically.
Software & Gameplay
The previous incarnation of BOGOF Bingo ran on Virtue Fusion, but is now on Pragmatic Play software, a developer who has brought bingo-lovers BetVictor Bingo. Being owned by Nektan too – an experienced name in online bingo and iGaming – you can be sure that the gameplay isn’t to be faulted.
As for the slots, there are numerous games from big-name providers, including NetEnt, Eyecon and Blueprint Gaming – all trusted names, everything’s in place for great gameplay.
Safety & Security
The site is licensed by the United Kingdom Gambling Commission for players in Great Britain and by the Gibraltar Gaming Commission for players elsewhere – both among the most trustworthy regulatory bodies, players are in safe hands.
Payments are all safe too, with BOGOF Bingo meeting requirements set out by payment providers, while players’ funds are held in accounts separate to the funds of the company. Table and slot games on the site make use of a Random Number Generator to ensure fairness too.
Payments & Withdrawals
A range of popular payment options are on offer when you use BOGOF Bingo, from Visa and MasterCard debit cards to e-wallets, so there should be an option that suits you. The minimum deposit for all options barring Boku is £10 – for Boku, it’s £15. A fee of 15% is applied to all Boku deposits, but when depositing with any other providers, there are no fees. Other options include Neteller, Paysafecard, Skrill 1-Tap, and the minimum you can withdraw is £10.
The site’s customer service team are available 24 hours a day and seven days a week, on email, telephone and live chat. If emailing, players will need to use the same email that they signed up with, as they are unable to respond to emails from other addresses.
There’s an FAQ page too, and it’s pretty comprehensive. Providing the answers to a number of questions, it might be worth checking here before reaching out to the customer service team.
Bonuses & Promotions
BOGOF Bingo’s welcome bonus is an appealing one. From a minimum deposit of £10, players can get a maximum bonus of £30, with 5x wagering, and 30 spins worth 25p each on Fluffy Favourites. Not only that, but there’s a week of free bingo thrown into the bargain too – you can enjoy free play in the Newbie Room, but check the terms and conditions first!
There are other offers and promotions too, where the casino will give away cash on a weekly basis to the biggest spin winner, for example, or give away bonus spins for a weekend. Of course, the different promotions on at any time can differ, so it might be worth checking back regularly to see what’s available. With BOGOF Bingo in their current guise being new, we could well see some more bonuses added in the future too.
Terms & Conditions: To be eligible for a Bonus of £30 and 30 Fluffy Favourites bonus spins, players must deposit a minimum of £10, and wager £10 on Bingo. Bonus funds carry a wagering requirement of 5x the sum of your deposit and bonus amount. All winnings earned from the spins will be rewarded in bonus funds and carry a wagering requirement of 40x the total bonus amount earned. Once you have wagered on bingo for the first time, you’ll be eligible to play on the Newbie Room for one week for free. See site for full terms.
For the most part, it’s easy to play on BOGOF Bingo no matter whether you’re on a desktop or a mobile device like a smartphone or tablet. You don’t need to download any apps or anything – just load up the website on your browser of choice.
However, it can be a little tricky to leave the bingo lobby and play slots – should you wish to – when playing on mobile, just because of how the lobby works. This is just a minor quibble, however, and shouldn’t impact your experience hugely.
Variety & Originality
Despite the name of BOGOF Bingo, slots definitely don’t feel like an afterthought. There are a handful of bingo rooms to try out – and more could well be added as the site continues to grow – and an extensive number of slots. Many big-name providers are well-represented here, and you’ll see popular slots like Fluffy Favourites, Starburst and Fishin’ Frenzy here alongside newer and lesser-spotted games, so there’s a lot to explore.
Loyalty & Rewards
There is a ‘Rewards’ page on the site, and it outlines a number of offers and bonuses that are available for players each week. However, it doesn’t look as if there’s a distinct rewards or loyalty programme yet – it’s worth watching this space, just to see if anything does get added in the future.
