Easter Bingo Verdict
Easter Bingo is a fine site with plenty of interesting rooms and promotions. The downside is that anyone who has played their sister sites will know all these offerings from other sites. The only thing which makes Easter Bingo standout is the community and theme, which may not sound like much but it’s worth checking out (and grabbing your free spins) to see if you make new friends.
Design & Usability
Well, you come to Easter Bingo expecting Easter and that’s what you get. The site is designed to be quite narrow, allowing for a huge background image. This shows a green landscape with giant Easter eggs packed with bingo balls and fluffy Easter bunnies. There’s actually two backgrounds which cycle. It’s very nice looking, but beyond a little welcoming text, that’s about the extent of things. There’s nothing else which makes this site Easter based.
Getting around is very easy, with a play and cashier button at the top and a row of clear tabs. The narrowness of the design might bother some players, but you can’t go far wrong.
Software & Gameplay
Easter Bingo has the powerful Dragonfish software you expect on Cassava sites, with quick loading times and sharp graphics. The lobby has the home page’s background and plenty of useful tiles showing the latest promotions.
The bingo is quick to load and starts you off with a quick tutorial to show you where the controls are. You’ll have no problems finding hosts and games at more or less any time of day, plus the rooms seem to be fairly active.
Safety & Security
Security is good here thanks to a secure certificate for the main site and SSL encryption protecting your transactions. You also have the peace of mind of the eCOGRA seal of approval, a third party which ensures fairness on top bingo sites.
Easter Bingo also maintains good responsible gambling practises and of course is fully licensed, by the Government of Gibraltar and the UK Gambling Commission.
Payments & Withdrawals
Click on the cashier button at the top to open the pop-up window. It’s a pretty neat system with controls on the left and support info on the right. You can choose to use phone banking or wire transfer, too.
The site accepts debit and credit cards in the form of MasterCard and Visa. Alternatively, you can use PayPal, Neteller, EntroPay and PaySafeCard. This should cover most UK bingo fans.
You need to visit the bottom of page links to get contact information here, which is a little confusing for new players. The main help button goes to FAQs which are certainly useful and well laid out.
You can use phone, email or a live chat substitute through the bingo chat to contact the Easter Bingo team. The phone line is open 9am to 1am and toll free in the UK, always good to see. You should have no major issues finding help here but may have to wait a little.
Bonuses & Promotions
The promotions at Easter Bingo are a little lacklustre, as they don’t reflect the site theme at all. There is no special artwork and nothing unique to this site. However, there is a nice set of general Cassava site offers, such as 2 million loyalty points up for grabs and £700 in real money prizes on the weekends. There’s plenty of little events like this to join in with.
The welcome bonus for newcomers is a generous 300%, up to £105, with a standard 4x wagering requirement. You also get 30 free spins so the site does stand out in that regard- you’ve nothing to lose by trying it out.
The mobile site is exactly what you’d expect based on sister sites. The software for mobile is actually very good and while it isn’t really reflective of the main site, it responds handsomely to swipes and taps and runs the majority of the games from the main site. You can even access chat here in a pretty big window.
However, the site is lacking any apps and so you need to visit the site on your mobile browser. This should be broadly compatible but there’s nothing on the main site to explain this or help players find it.
Variety & Originality
Easter Bingo offers a pretty broad selection of 90 ball, 75 ball and 5-line games. Though none of the rooms are specific to this site, they do all have artwork and a distinct feel, from Chatterbox to Roller Coaster with varying ticket prices. You also have four free bingo rooms and a mixture of daily jackpot games.
Watch out also for a nice slot selection, including the gorgeously drawn Theme Park game, plus the Wow special bingo where you can win free spins.
Loyalty & Rewards
The VIP system here is lacking (at least publicly) a true invite-only high roller experience, but you do have a nice loyalty point system with advancement and solid rewards. You earn jewels as you deposit and just one will get you to Bingo Pro level, the second tier of four.
Here you get 5% bingo cashback and 5 free spins, plus 2 free tickets for the monthly 10k jackpot. Rise up to the top tier to make that 15%, 15 spins and 10 tickets. You also gain access to more free bingo games, so it’s a nice, simple reward system.
