What we recommend instead
Harry's Bingo Verdict
Harry’s Bingo is not an exceptional site, being a pretty standard Cozy bingo clone with the usual game selection. The design does not stand out, other than being very purple. Having said that, there is a certain quality you’re guaranteed with Cozy sites, such as reliable software, a variety of bingo games and regular promotions.
Design & Usability
Harry’s Bingo is certainly a bright site, with a yellow and purple colour scheme that people will love or hate. The site doesn’t have any particular theme, but they do add plenty of welcoming text. A nice design touch is a clear list of credentials at the bottom, organised by type. Most sites just stick the logos in and leave you to work out what they mean.
Navigation is easy with a big top bar and floating links for live chat. Account sits at the top right as you’d expect, along with your VIP level.
Software & Gameplay
The software provided by Cozy Games is pretty standard and if you’ve played any of their bingo sites before, Harry’s Bingo won’t hold any surprises. The purple colour scheme looks better in the bingo. Buying tickets is very easy and you have quick links to account settings and mini games.
Chat has a good flow here and you shouldn’t struggle to find a chat host. Again, however, there’s nothing that really stands out.
Safety & Security
Harry’s Bingo make their credentials nice and clear. They have a Trustwave certificate for security and an iTech certificate for a fair random number generator, standard on Cozy sites. Their licenses from the UK Gambling Commission and Isle of Man government are also clearly displayed. A little more detail about the encryption they use would be welcome.
Payments & Withdrawals
Harry’s Bingo has the annoying tendency to grey out your screen to push you to verify your card, though this isn’t really an issue if you intended to play anyway. Once on the deposit screen you’ll find a nice, big, simple form with a user-friendly layout.
The selection of payment methods is very good here, lacking only PayPal. Card users can use MasterCard, Visa, Switch, Solo, Maestro and more. E-wallets include Neteller, Skrill, PaySafeCard and Boku mobile payments. Withdrawal times are average, around 3-5 working days.
Harry’s Bingo offers 24/7 live chat, an increasingly common and important part of bingo support. Like most Cozy sites they have an email form and a helpdesk-style ticket system, which is good for tracking your queries. Unfortunately, they don’t have phone support yet, which is preferred by some customers.
Support response times seem to be good and staff are knowledgeable. The site has an FAQ page for everything else, clearly labelled by sections.
Bonuses & Promotions
The promotional offers here are pretty simple, drawing from the usual set offered by Cozy sites. There’s a host of recurring special games, such as a free bingo tournament and £15,000 daily raffle. They have some slot promotions too, plus a chance to win casino cash just by logging in.
New players get some good incentives, including £15 free credit without a deposit. After that, your first deposit of £10 gets a £40 bonus. This carries a four-times wagering requirement. Overall, though promotions are not original, there’s plenty to check out.
Harry’s Bingo nicely provides a mobile page to explain their offerings. They have a reduced but pretty good selection of 47 games on mobile, plus they support all the major platforms. An app is sadly missing but you can connect via your phone or tablet browser.
Mobile view is pretty good, thanks to Cozy’s nicely set up mobile platform. Lack of chat is a downside here, however there is a nice £5 credit for trying the mobile site.
Variety & Originality
Harry’s Bingo suffers in originality simply because it has the same games you’d expect from a Cozy site. However, the variety is very good. You have 90 ball, 80 ball, 75 ball, 50 and 30 ball! So, various game types can be found here, including speed bingo. Like many Cozy sites there’s also free bingo on two tiers.
The slots and casino offerings are good here, but you won’t find any major titles. On the whole the selection is of good quality, but may not impress long time players.
Loyalty & Rewards
There’s no specific VIP programme here, but there is a loyalty system. The Harry’s Bingo Loyalty Club offers loyalty points each time you buy bingo tickets. 1,000 points can be turned into 10 bonus bucks for use on the games. You can rise through four tiers to unlock bigger bonuses on your deposits, up to 250%.
A pretty standard offering without any special incentives, such as free gifts or extra rooms.
