While shaking your money-maker might attract attention at certain establishments, it won’t help you make cash at Booty Bingo, as the “Booty” in the site’s name refers to pirate’s treasure. As a proud member of the Live Bingo Network, Booty’s sure to please when it comes to game variety and wide-ranging promotions. But overall, is it worthy of your custom or will it give you a bum deal?
If you’ve played at other LBN bingo sites, you’ll find the design of the Booty Bingo website is extremely similar including the layout of the lobby, the menu system, and the promotions page.
The homepage gives you visibility of the upcoming games, prize pots, and ticket prices, as well as the current values of the progressive room jackpots and progressive slots jackpots.
You can get support by raising a ticket, using the automated email contact form, telephoning the Customer Service team, or launching the live chat facility. Help is on offer 24/7.
If you’re new to the site, you can familiarise yourself with it more quickly by reading the FAQ section. However, the link to it is situated in the footer, so it’s easy to overlook it. We’d like to see it relocated to the top menu bar or somewhere else more obvious.
Booty Bingo uses Cozy Games software, which is standard for sites that belong to the Live Bingo Network. While Cozy’s desktop and mobile platforms are both easy to use and well-designed, the partnership between Cozy Games and LBN is nothing more than a white label solution. White label sites offer off-the-shelf promotions, games, and website design to online bingo operators who only need to give the site a new “skin” to suit their brand name (e.g. a logo and wallpaper). This means that if you’re already a member of one Cozy site, you won’t find anything extra or unique at Booty Bingo.
Having said that, there’s a good mix of slots and bingo promotions, including a tasty £15 no-deposit bonuses that lets you check out the site prior to becoming a funded member. There’s also a generous three-part welcome bonus that gives you 500%, 350%, and 300% on your first three deposits respectively, refer-a-friend rewards, a loyalty scheme that offers you as much as 20% cashback each week and redeposit bonuses of up to 250%, mountains of fun chat games, daily login bonuses, and free bingo tournaments.
Both the desktop and mobile platforms have quick response times and are fairly reliable with minimal downtime. Plus, all of the rooms are moderated by chat hosts and are nicely busy at all times of the day. The games aren’t exclusive to Booty Bingo but are exclusive to Cozy Games sites in general.
As you can see from the “Mobile” page of Booty Bingo, all you need to do to start playing on the move is visit the site in your mobile browser. The mobile site offers the exact same range of scratch cards, slots, and bingo games as the desktop site rather than a cut-down version as is common with some online bingo operators.
There are many key requirements of safety and security that Booty Bingo meets such as using a secure URL throughout its site, encrypting transactions via a COMODO Secure Digital certificate, using an independently tested Random Number Generator, and including links to its privacy and responsible gaming policies in its footer. However, we couldn’t find the eCOGRA logo or any mention of a fair play policy.
Booty Bingo scores highly on game variety. There is a total of eleven rooms offering 90-ball, 80-ball, 75-ball, and 30-ball games, each of which boasts a progressive room jackpot of up to £2,500. There are £250 daily, £500 weekly, and £1,000 monthly jackpot games which you can earn free tickets to by making deposits to your account. In addition, there are free bingo tourneys running every day that offer full house prizes of up to £2.
There are a reasonable amount of slots, casino games, and scratch cards to play, although the majority are Eyecon games. So, if you’re hoping to find IGT, Microgaming, or NetEnt titles, we’re afraid you’re out of luck.
Banking at Booty Bingo is relatively straightforward. You can use Visa Debit/Credit, MasterCard, Solo, Switch, Maestro, Visa Electron, Neteller, or Paysafecard to make deposits and withdrawals. Currently, Paypal is not offered. The minimum and maximum withdrawal amounts are £10 and £30 respectively, and withdrawal requests are processed within three working days.
So far, everything sounds reasonable, but when you take a look at the terms and conditions, it turns out that the withdrawal policy is pretty strict. For example, the maximum weekly withdrawal limit is £300 while the monthly limit is set at £4,000, and in the happy event that you win a bingo or slots progressive jackpot, Booty Bingo will only pay it to you in £1,000 weekly instalments.
In addition, the wagering requirements for deposit bonuses is 4x on bingo and 10x on slots, but all other promotional bonuses (including daily login and chat bonuses, and free spins) require you to wager 8x on bingo and 20x on slots.
Furthermore, the operator only allows you to request one withdrawal per five-day period.
Booty Bingo operates a loyalty programme which consists of four tiers (Silver, Gold, VIP, and SVIP). To move up the levels, you must accumulate the required amount of loyalty points as stated on the Promotions page. The only obvious benefits of the scheme are redeposit bonuses of 100% to 250% on all deposits. You can also earn a £10 Amazon voucher each time a friend that you refer to the site makes his or her first deposit of £10 or more.
If you want to join a Cozy Games/LBN site, Booty Bingo is certainly worth considering. While it doesn’t offer anything above and beyond the other sites in the LBN network, its plus points are a diverse choice of games and promotions, including a £15 no-deposit bonus. We particularly appreciate that it offers no less than four bingo variants, and all of the games and promotions that you can play on desktops are also available for mobile devices.
