What we recommend instead
LMAO Bingo Verdict
LMAO Bingo is a fun site and it deserves a chance. While the site’s offerings are all very standard, the fact that chat is active and growing is a great sign and perhaps they can make good on the ‘everyone knows your name’ approach and really make this community strong. The games here might not amaze, but half of the fun is a good chat rapport and this could make all the difference. Maybe you will be laughing your… bottom off!
Design & Usability
LMAO Bingo has a blue colour scheme and wacky fonts, giving it a comedic and fun vibe. They add a welcoming aspect to this with a pleasant background showing a cartoon down and windmill, plus the tagline ‘where everyone knows your name’. The theme is interesting and seems to be inclusive for all kinds of players.
Getting around the site is easy, with top and side navigation bars, so each page can take you to any other page. You can log in at the top right and the registration process takes barely a minute.
Software & Gameplay
Bingo veterans will recognise the Cozy software when loading up LMAO Bingo, which is quite basic but reliable. Though it’s a little tightly packed, you have a lot of options to mess with and you can clearly see bingo, tickets, chat and mini games.
Rooms are pretty busy here and have plenty of chatters, which is a great sign. There are hosts in most rooms and they seem well trained, able to both keeping chat flowing and deal with technical hiccups.
Safety & Security
LMAO Bingo is fully licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and Isle of Man Gambling Commission. The site’s trustworthiness is also supported by the iTech Labs seal, which means this independent body has tested the games for fair randomness.
The site also has strong security from COMODO and your money transactions are encrypted against hacking.
Payments & Withdrawals
There are several payment options on LMAO Bingo, including the big credit and debit cards like Visa, MasterCard, Switch, Solo and Maestro. They also accept Neteller and PaySafeCard, giving a couple of options for those who don’t like to use card details online. A bigger name like PayPal would be good to see.
The cashier is quick and easy to use, though the page is a little cluttered. This should take no time at all once you first set up your payment method. Withdrawals are quick here, just under the five day average.
Click on Support at the top right to reach the LMAO Bingo team. You get a simple form, offering email, telephone, live chat and tickets. Having not just the big three but the ticket system too makes this site very accessible. There is a floating button for live chat on all pages, which will help newcomers find it fast.
You also have access to a thorough set of FAQs and we found the team to be very helpful and welcoming.
Bonuses & Promotions
LMAO Bingo has pretty much the same special offers as any UK bingo site, but this does include some gems like regular Session Bingo with £100 jackpots, weekly and monthly special bingo rooms, bonuses for following them on Twitter and more.
The site has a really good welcome bingo bonus. You can claim up to 500% on your first deposit, a huge amount, which goes up to £2,500! Don’t forget that this comes with a 4x wagering requirement. There are second and third deposit offers too, so you can grab a lot of cash here, but it lacks anything unique.
Though Lucky Ladies Bingo does not have an app, you can visit the site on your mobile or tablet browser pretty easily. You can access the majority of the site’s games and they run well, though the bingo display is a little basic. It’s fine for logging in during a break or when you’re out to grab some tickets.
The site has a little mobile page to explain more about this, which you will see before you log in.
Variety & Originality
LMAO Bingo has 90 ball, 80 ball, 75 ball, 50 ball and 30 ball bingo games, so there’s plenty of variety in game modes, yet also nothing that really stands out. The site has no special rooms that aren’t on other sites. On the plus side, you can take part in several jackpot bingo rooms and free bingo too.
The slots selection is broad here but a lot of the games are basic. A few stand out for better graphics and feature rounds, such as Irish Gold.
Loyalty & Rewards
LMAO Bingo is very sketchy on the details of their VIP programme, so it isn’t as enticing as it could be. They do offer reward points for spending, which you can later convert to cash. These points also accrue to let you go up the VIP ranks, from Silver to Gold to VIP to SVIP.
The reward for this patience appears to be bigger deposit matches and possibly other rewards, but the site makes no mention of this and it’s only based on previous Cozy site experience and what little the support team can tell us.
