What we recommend instead
Naughty Bingo Verdict
Naughty Bingo is not a very interesting site, despite a fresh design and layout. The idea for the theme is fun but it doesn’t really go anywhere; it’s just a name. What does redeem this site is an active set of chatters, engaging hosts and a pretty good mixture of games and promotions. There’s nothing new here, but it’s still a good site when considered by itself.
Design & Usability
A new site for 2017, Naughty Bingo has a very smart and refreshed look to its design. The site uses an updated version of the standard Cozy template, but doesn’t go particularly far in terms of art. They have a devilish logo with some fun, floating bingo balls that move when you hover over them, but the background is just blue rays of light.
The site is easy to navigate, having a typical top bar with links and a useful account area at the top right. Some extra buttons make it easy to get to live chat in a hurry, too. The only thing missing is attention to detail on pages like Promotions.
Software & Gameplay
Naughty Bingo uses a built-in lobby on the Bingo part of the main site. This is essentially just a list of rooms. Some prefer to have the bingo like this, others prefer a full pop-up lobby as part of the game software. This method is nice and simple, but also lacking some sparkle.
The rooms are very basic here but they do look pretty good (so long as you don’t make it full screen), thanks to a soft colour scheme and smooth animation. The chat window is a fair size and has a lot of customisable options, like bold, underline and italic. We were pleased to find that hosts were around and the rooms were busy with people interacting, even during the day.
Safety & Security
Naughty Bingo isn’t all that naughty because it’s fully licensed to operate, by the UK Gambling Commission and the Isle of Man Gambling Commission. They also have a random number generator which is certified as fair by the independent iTech Labs. No naughtiness here!
The site is protected by security and encryption so your payments are safe, plus they have information to help you control your spending.
Payments & Withdrawals
You can make deposits and withdrawals on the main page at Naughty Bingo, with a link at the top right. The process is very simple, giving you a pick of methods and a list of quick amounts to click on. It’s very easy to choose your bonus here and see what’s on offer, as well as the terms involved.
Naughty Bingo accepts credit and debit cards, Neteller, PaySafeCard, Boku Mobile Payments and Skrill, giving them a slightly bigger selection than some other good bingo sites. This is always nice to see and gives players more flexibility.
Naughty Bingo can be contacted by phone, email, ticket and live chat. The latter is always a big plus point for a site and makes it a lot easier to get in touch quickly, especially at unsociable hours. The phone lines are open 24/7 for the same purpose and the extra ticket system really gives you a lot of choice.
The team are pretty knowledgeable and should respond within a day or two for non-instant methods. The site has a big FAQ section which will save you needing to contact them much.
Bonuses & Promotions
The site is somewhat lacking in original promotions, with none of the offerings having artwork to match the Naughty Bingo theme. Fortunately, they are still interesting promotions, with an emphasis on chat thanks to the Break Time Quizzer. There are also regular jackpots, such as £1,000 Monthly Moolah. The offerings are good, but not exceptional.
The welcome bonus however is massive here and flexible too. You can claim up to 500% on your first deposit, with a standard 4x wagering requirement. There are reload bonuses too and even a £15 no deposit bingo bonus just for registering a card. You’ve nothing to lose by trying the site out.
You can find out more about Naughty Bingo’s mobile functionality thanks to a special page for it. This explains that they don’t have an app but you can play on the go using your device’s browser. This should work on Apple, Android, Windows and Blackberry phones.
The mobile site also offers an extra £15 free credit, a tempting offering indeed. The mobile site is good and easy to use, but doesn’t provide a great experience. It’s more of a way to have a quick go, than something you can sit and play, though the slots are fine.
Variety & Originality
There’s certainly variety in terms of game types here, as you can play 90 ball, 75 ball, 80 ball, 50 and even 30 ball bingo. This is covered by eleven rooms, which also include special jackpot rooms and a free bingo. These rooms are lacking much character, using the same names and designs as other Cozy sites.
The slots selection is broad and has a few gems among pretty generic games. Crystal Drop stands out for nice, shiny artwork.
Loyalty & Rewards
Naughty Bingo has a very simple loyalty system which has four tiers and ranges from Silver to SVIP. The site does not make is clear what you need to spend to progress, but some information can be found in the FAQs.
The promotions page does not even tell you what the tiers unlock, but typically for Cozy games they offer bigger deposit bonuses. Nice, but nothing special or enticing.
