Flog It Bingo Verdict
Flog It Bingo is an attractive site that offers a couple of exclusive promotions. However, its membership of the 15 Network means that it’s let down by a lack of payment methods, restricted support hours, and choice of bingo games and rooms. It’s definitely one of the better 15 Network sites, but be warned, you’re likely to get bored quickly if you’re an experienced player.
Design & Usability
Flog It Bingo certainly looks like a whole lot of fun with its car boot sale and fairground theme, which includes bingo balls shaped like hot air balloons. At the top of the page is a large box where you can sign in or register, and beneath it is the welcome offer. Lower down, there are banners displaying the latest promotions and upcoming jackpot games, and a news section which links to Flog It’s blog.
The navigation bar is concise enough to make finding your way around the different games and promotions nice and simple, and the support tab is also easy to spot.
Software & Gameplay
Flog It Bingo runs on Jumpman Gaming’s in-house software, which is simple to use but fairly basic and unimpressive. The lobby is divided into six different sections that allow you to browse 90-ball games, the Tuesday Treasure jackpot game, 75-ball games, free bingo, jackpot games, and instants. The rooms use the same names as those at other 15 Network sites, and there’s a distinct lack to choose from due to the restricted opening hours. If you’re hoping to get your hands on an abundance of free bingo, you’re likely to be disappointed by what’s on offer.
The Newbie Room (which you can access for seven days after joining) opens nightly between 8 PM and 11 PM, and there’s a free 90-ball room which offers £1 jackpots. There are no exclusive games to play, and although the rooms are supposed to be operated by chat hosts, we were unable to spot any.
Safety & Security
The site is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, and the software that it uses has been tested and approved by an external company called SQS. An independently checked random number generator is used in all the games to ensure fair and totally random outcomes.
Payments & Withdrawals
A significant drawback of 15 Network sites like Flog It is that they only allow you to make deposits and withdrawals via credit card and debit card.
The cashier system lets you make deposits (N.B., minimum £5) and withdrawals (N.B., minimum £30) quickly and easily, and also enter bonus codes if you have any. Withdrawal requests are processed after 48 business hours and can, therefore, take up to five days to reach you.
A major problem with bingo sites on the 15 Network is that customer support is only available from 9.30 AM until 6 PM from Monday to Friday. There’s also no live chat service, so if you want to get hold of the team, you’ll need to send an email, send a WhatsApp message, or telephone. It’s worth noting that the telephone number provided is situated in the Channel Islands, which is charged at the national rate.
Bonuses & Promotions
The welcome package offers you a £20 free bonus when you make your first deposit of £10 or more, and you also get to Spin the Wheel, which guarantees you an extra bonus of at least £5 and as much as £2,500.
While many of Flog It’s promotions can be found at other 15 Network sites (such as the £2k Pay Day Jackpot, Friday Fortune, Weekend Wad, Monday Madness, and Friday Night Takeaway), there are a few exclusive offers. During Christmas 2016, Flog It ran a Lenovo tablet giveaway, and every month, funded players receive an email inviting them to play a free slot game.
The mobile-friendly website isn’t advertised at all, but you can enjoy the majority of games that’re available on the desktop site on your smartphone or tablet by visiting Flog It Bingo on your mobile web browser.
Variety & Originality
Due to the limited amount of bingo rooms and their unusually restrictive opening times, there’s simply not enough variety at Flog It to keep the average player entertained. There are no online bingo variants other than 90-ball and 75-ball to play, and even the number of jackpot games and free bingo offers are too few. The selection of slots, however, is average.
Bar a couple of exclusive promotions, Flog It doesn’t offer any more than its fellow members of the 15 Network.
Loyalty & Rewards
Flog It Bingo operates a VIP programme that awards you stars for playing at the site. Once you make your first deposit, you’re automatically enrolled in the VIP scheme, and as you continue to earn stars, you’ll starting moving up the five levels of Member, Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Black. The VIP page doesn’t state how many stars you need to qualify for each level. However, it does tell you that the perks include cashback, birthday bonuses, higher reload bonuses (Member level players get 25%; Bronze level players get 50%; Silver level players get 60%; Gold level players get 65%, and Black level players get 75%), access to VIP games and jackpots, and mystery gifts.
