What we recommend instead
Fun Bingo Verdict
Fun Bingo should really live up to its name, thanks to a nice set of games, and a pleasant site theme. You also get a really good customer support system here. However, the fun isn’t exactly original or exclusive. If this is your first site you’ll enjoy it a lot, but if you’re a bingo veteran you’ll just recognise all the usual hallmarks. Still, an active chat community gives Fun Bingo something to shout about.
Design & Usability
You can’t deny that Fun Bingo looks good. The site has a full-page background showing a buzzing fairground, with bright lights and colours. From balloons to big-tops, it looks great. There’s a nice animated tile showing promotions too, but the actual promotion page just has stock artwork.
The site is easy to navigate thanks to a top bar and a sensible layout with sidebars on individual pages. Though a full pop-up lobby would be nice, the site is easy to use and looks smart, but for the occasional clashing menu.
Software & Gameplay
This site has a lobby built into the main site, rather than popping up. Some prefer this as you can still reach your account page and other areas easily. You can also see a simple list of the games. The downside is that the bingo console is quite small and not that attractive, though it is very smooth to run.
The chat window here gets a good portion of the screen, without being swamped by mini games. You can easily join chat and use quick buttons for the lingo. We found the rooms to be pretty busy with chatters, plus hosts were on hand. Great to see an active site.
Safety & Security
Fun Bingo is fully licensed and regulated, by the UK Gambling Commission and the Isle of Man Gambling Commission. The site’s random number generator, which makes the games fair, is independently certified by the iTech Labs.
You will also find a good responsible gaming guide with account controls. Your personal data and transactions are protected by Trustwave security.
Payments & Withdrawals
Fun Bingo has a simple on-page depositing system which uses a big, bold set of fields, so there’s no fiddling around. You have some quick buttons to speed up the process. Withdrawals should only take 2-3 working days, below average.
The site accepts credit and debit cards, or you can use Skrill, Boku Mobile Payments, PaySafeCard or Neteller. This is a pretty good mix that covers all types of users.
You have a good contact page on Fun Bingo with a simple, direct set of contact methods. You can use a helpdesk style ticketing system, an email form, a phone line which is 24/7 or live chat support. The big three and more, what else can you ask for?
You can reach live chat from any page thanks to a floating button at the top right, which is a nice touch. The staff seem to be bright and well trained too, which makes a big difference.
Bonuses & Promotions
The promotions at Fun Bingo are pretty much stock Cozy Games offers, so don’t expect anything new or themed to the site. Having said that, they are fun. You have session bingo with guaranteed jackpots each night, chat parties and quizzes and more. The site just needs something unique to make it worth visiting instead of others.
The welcome bonus is massive, offering 500% on your first deposit and more bonuses on your second and third. This comes with a 4x wagering requirement. You can also claim £10 play money just for registering a card.
Fun Bingo has a handy mobile page to explain how you can visit the site via mobile. This is great for new members. They do not have any apps but you can just load the site in your mobile or tablet’s browser. You can use the same login information and the game selection is largely intact.
The mobile site is an optimised version of the main site and keeps the same colour scheme. You can navigate reasonably easily, but it could perhaps do with being more gesture-based. The bingo game itself is nicely animated and looks good, but lacks chat.
Variety & Originality
Fun Bingo offers eleven rooms, with some others that crop up seasonally or for special events. The range is really good, including 90 ball, 80 ball, 75 ball, 50 ball and 30 ball. Within these you get a few varying price points and jackpots too. They have free bingo and some dedicated jackpot rooms. Still, this is nothing that you won’t see on other Cozy Games sites.
This site has a huge number of slots, but nothing that really stands out; a mix of good and mediocre quality.
Loyalty & Rewards
There is a simple loyalty program at Fun Bingo, though you need to delve into FAQs to learn how it works. There are four tiers from Silver to SVIP. You rise through the ranks by collecting loyalty points, which you earn by depositing.
Higher tiers give you access to better deposit bonuses, up to 250%. This is a nice reward but not all that exciting for the money required. No VIP treatment per se here.
