Club 3000 Bingo started out as a solitary bingo hall in Coatbridge, Scotland in 2006. Over the next ten years, the brand has grown considerably, and now operates fourteen bricks-and-mortar establishments in Bristol, Cardiff, Coatbridge, Glasgow, Glenrothes, Huyton, Kirkcaldy, Middleton, Old Trafford, Peterlee, Preston City, Preston NHL, Stanley Park, and Walkden.
In 2017, the brand branched out into the realms of online bingo, where it aims to offer its customers “Great value bingo with great prize money”.
As a Virtue Fusion-power website, there are more bingo variants to enjoy than average. Plus, there are jackpot slots and instants, and you can even enjoy playing at Club 3000 Bingo via mobile devices.
Find out what our team makes of the Club 3000 online experience in our in-depth review.
The Club 3000 Bingo website is visually appealing with the pink, purple and coral hues used in the advertisements contrasting nicely against the simple white background. The brand logo is the same as the one that’s displayed at all Club 3000 bingo halls, but the website also has a cartoon mascot who’s a friendly-looking purple alien called Ognib.
Along the top of the site, there’s a link to the Promotions page, as well as Login and Register buttons, and a drop-down list that shows you all of the brand’s land-based clubs.
Underneath the welcome offer, you can browse the top five bingo and slot jackpots, the latest winners, and the different bingo variants that are on offer.
At the bottom of the homepage, there are links to Club 3000 Bingo’s social media pages, contact information, FAQ, payment methods, licensing information, and more.
If you’re unable to find an answer to your query via the FAQ page, you can get in touch with the customer service team via email or online contact form. Emails are responded to within 24 hours, but in the absence of live chat or telephone support, members won’t be able to get urgent issues resolved any quicker.
You can make yourself at home at Club 3000 Bingo from the moment you sign up and add funds to your account as the welcome offer invites you to claim a £20 bingo bonus when you deposit at least £10 to your account. The wagering requirements are pleasingly low at just 2x the bonus amount, and you have one full calendar month in which to use your bonus.
Unfortunately, the site doesn’t appear to offer any further promotions, but if you allow Club 3000 Bingo to send you emails or SMS messages when you register, you may find that you get send details of any special offers that may become available in future.
Virtue Fusion software (which is made by Playtech) is considered one of the best online bingo platforms around. This is because not only does it afford players access to a wealth of unique bingo variants, but it also provides a stable, easy-to-navigate, and mobile-friendly interface that lets you pre-buy game cards, enjoy side games, chat to your fellow players, and filter the upcoming games schedule according to your preference.
You can hop between the different rooms nice and quickly, and you can either play side games while you’re enjoying a bingo session or play slots and instants in a separate browser window.
The rooms seem reasonably busy, but unfortunately, all of them are networked, so it would be good to see some standalone options added in future.
While some Virtue Fusion-powered online bingo sites choose to host their own mobile applications (e.g. Gala Bingo and Mecca Bingo), they aren’t strictly necessary as Virtue Fusion software is optimised for mobile devices. Hence, if you wish to play at Club 3000 Bingo on a tablet or smartphone, you can do so by visiting the site using your device’s internet browser.
Club 3000 Bingo is regulated and licensed by both the Alderney Gambling Control Commission and the UK Gambling Commission. There are links to Fair Play and Security at the bottom of the website, along with advice on playing responsibly.
Like Gala, Mecca, and Bucky Bingo among others, Club 3000 Bingo benefits from several online bingo variants which are unique to Virtue Fusion sites. Examples include Cash Cubes, Rainbow Riches, Lucky Numbers, Deal or No Deal, and Who Wants to be a Millionaire.
As the rooms are networked, there’s not much in the way of originality, but Club 3000 certainly impresses with its variety of bingo, slots, and instant games.
For example, you can enjoy cut-price game cards in the Value Room and play for extra prizes in Roll On games. There are also Playtech and Barcrest slots and instants such as Big Top Tombola, Clover Rollover, Rainbow Riches, Winnings of Oz, and Dynamite Digger.
There are fewer payment options available than at most Virtue Fusion bingo sites, and they include MasterCard, Visa, Paypal, Paysafecard, Maestro, Delta, and Switch.
You can deposit as little as £5 and withdraw amounts of £10+.
The time that it takes for withdrawal requests to be approved isn’t specified, but the FAQ suggests that it usually takes a total of seven to fourteen days for withdrawals to reach your chosen account.
We find it disappointing that Club 3000 Bingo fails to offer a VIP or loyalty rewards scheme, and hope that this is addressed in the near future so that players feel more appreciated.
While Club 3000 Bingo is likely to appeal most to existing members of its land-based clubs who would like the opportunity to play online, it fails to rival some of its fellow Virtue Fusion brands which offer more promotions, VIP schemes, and standalone rooms.
But, if you’re eager to explore more online bingo variants, Club 3000 Bingo has plenty to entertain you with.
