What we recommend instead
Fever Bingo Verdict
Fever Bingo is a disappointing site where the bold theme doesn’t really translate to a strong site. The presence of some unusual and nicely presented promotions rescues the site considerably, as players will always check out a bingo site with something new to offer, but the games themselves are nothing special. Worth checking out, but you are not likely to stick around.
Design & Usability
The site home page opens with a serious colour assault, playing off bright blues and the rainbow colours of the 70s. Indeed, this is a disco themed site with a fun mascot in a white jumpsuit, striking the infamous Saturday Night Fever pose. The site has some animation and the theme is used on several pages, but it isn’t exactly top notch artwork. Still, better than average by a long chalk.
Navigation is easy thanks to a clear set of buttons at the top. Registration won’t take a minute, with a short form. The site is well made with no glaring problems.
Software & Gameplay
The lobby loads fast here and is very easy to follow. Your information is top left, while games are listed on tabs at the bottom. The software is a little bland looking however, with rooms lacking artwork and a lot of blocks of solid colour.
The bingo game at Fever Bingo is a little rough on the eyes, being quite basic and a little too colourful, but it works perfectly well and this may just be down to taste. You get a good-sized chat window if you first close mini games, but the community is very quiet. This may change on Mondays, but we didn’t see a host.
Safety & Security
Fever Bingo has good security, offering SSL encryption for all transactions on the site, though the site itself could use an updated security certificate. The site is fully licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Alderney Gambling Control Commission.
You will also find responsible gaming guidelines and the important SQS seal for a fair random number generator.
Payments & Withdrawals
Depositing and withdrawing is handled on the main site here and it only takes a few seconds to fill in the form and be on your way. The downside is that they only accept credit cards and debit cards.
The selection is pretty good, including MasterCard, Visa, Switch, Solo and Maestro, but lack of any e-wallets really limits your options.
Fever Bingo has a small but neat help page with clear contact methods. You can reach the team by phone or email. The phone line is unfortunately not 24/7, only open 9.30pm to 6pm, which means evening players will be stuck with email. The lack of live chat means this gap is not really filled.
There is an FAQ page with some useful information here and the team is very professional, just hard to get hold of at night.
Bonuses & Promotions
Promotions are good at Fever Bingo, with a few original ideas and they all have their own artwork, which is always a huge plus point for a site. The welcome bonus here is very fun, using a randomised wheel to decide what you get. For a £10 deposit, you can spin the wheel and get from 20 to 500 free spins on Temple of Isis, Shaman’s Dream, Fluffy Favourites, or alternatively, free bingo tickets.
This is a brilliant idea but it does mean you don’t get the usual straightforward cash match. Note also You must wager 40x the total amount won from the free spins, before you can start withdrawing. There are loads of other promotions here, such as guaranteed jackpots and a slot of the week with free spins. Try Fortune Fountain for a £500 networked bingo game. Magic Mondays stand out too, offering a mixture of free to play games for instant prizes each Monday.
Fever Bingo is lacking a mobile page to explain how to connect, but you can access the mobile site through your phone or tablet browser. There is no app available.
The mobile site is much like the main site, colourful to the point of being a big hard on the eye, but certainly fun and bright. Navigation is very simple with finger swipes but the desktop site is a lot better.
Variety & Originality
Fever Bingo is a little short on bingo rooms, offering seven, but four of those are jackpot rooms and so not always open. They only offer 75 ball and 90 ball, but there is a mixture of ticket prices and a free bingo.
The slot selection is pretty good but the quality is inconsistent. Shaman’s Dream stands out as a good title to get started with.
Loyalty & Rewards
Fever Bingo is lacking a formal VIP and loyalty scheme. You will not find any information about this on site, sadly.
The special Wheel of Spins game on site mentions that players can complete quests, such as play more games and join in chat, to get more spin and more freebies.
