What we recommend instead
Pick Me Up Bingo Verdict
Pick Me Up Bingo offers a top-quality playing experience with a hugely varied choice of bingo games, instant games, slots, and promotions. The only people who may find it disappointing are players who are already members of Jackpotjoy, as both sites use the same software and, therefore, share offers and games.
Design & Usability
Pick Me Up Bingo uses magazine-inspired branding to reflect its chat mag roots, although the website layout keeps to the standard Gamesys template which can also be seen at Jackpotjoy. There are plenty of cute and amusing characters to entertain players, including Tiki the Monkey, Alice, and even the Queen of Bingo.
The design is appealing and the graphics and recommended games are often changed to keep things fresh and exciting. The simple menu system makes the website a delight to navigate, and there are areas that every kind of player will find interesting, such as the Friend Referral Page, the Shop of Joy, the Promotions page, and the Help and FAQ section.
Software & Gameplay
Pick Me Up Bingo runs on Gamesys software which is high-quality and particularly reliable. The key benefits include exclusive slots like Tiki Island, Paper Wins, Wonderland, and Double Bubble, plus unique bingo variants such as Game Show Bingo, Bingo Royale, and Take Me Out Bingo. For more information, please read our Gamesys software review.
Safety & Security
SSL encryption is used to protect sensitive data and a Random Number Generator ensures fair outcomes for the games.
Payments & Withdrawals
The available banking methods are Visa, Visa Debit, Visa Electron, MasterCard, Maestro, Paysafecard, and Paypal. It’s a safe selection, but we’d like to see more options such as Neteller, Skrill, and Entropay introduced.
Withdrawals are typically processed within four hours, which is excellent, and depending on your chosen withdrawal method, it can take between 24 hours and 5 days for funds to reach you.
It’s impressive to see that the Pick Me Up Bingo customer service team is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year via email, telephone (N.B., a free 0800 number is provided for UK players), and live chat. You can also search the detailed FAQs to see if your issue has already been answered.
Bonuses & Promotions
What we particularly love about Pick Me Up Bingo is its extensive range of promotions. There really is something for everyone to enjoy, and you can even see what offers will be taking place later in the month, which is great news for people who like to make a note in their diaries of upcoming jackpot games, etc. that they don’t want to miss. Plus, the results of competitions and quizzes are also published so that you can check back to see if you’re a winner.
The Promotions page is updated every couple of days, and it’s rare to find an out-of-date promotion listed. The offers extend to cashback, cash prize draws, jackpot specials, Super Link games, rewards for referring friends, session tickets, free bingo, quizzes, and the opportunity to win physical prizes including holidays.
On top of this, there’s the welcome bonus which offers you a 250% bonus of up to £250 when you make your first deposit of £10 or more. And, it only comes with a four times wagering requirement!
Pick Me Up Bingo gives you the option to download either its iOS or Android app via the App Store and Google Play Store, or access it directly via the main website.
We’re sorry to say that we found the mobile bingo platform to be disappointing compared to the desktop experience, as there are a lot less games to play (including Take Me Out and Bejeweled Bingo), fewer advertised promotions, and the site isn’t as easy to find your way around.
Variety & Originality
Pick Me Up Bingo is a great place to find exclusive games, as the only other place you can play them is at Jackpotjoy. There are unique bingo variants including Take Me Out, Bingo Royale, and Bejeweled Bingo, and exclusive scratch cards and slots like Tiki Island, Wonderland, Paper Wins, Footballers Widows, and Pillars of Fortune.
Furthermore, there are four free daily games – Doubly Bubbly, Show Us Your Balls, Tiki’s Catch of the Day, and Daily Paper – that you can choose one of to play daily when you’ve made a recent deposit, and three “Value” bingo rooms where you can play for 1p to 2p per card.
There are also plenty of slots, casino games, and live casino games to choose from.
Loyalty & Rewards
Pick Me Up Bingo operates a premium VIP loyalty scheme that’s invitation-only, and the perks include exclusive promotions and game previews, VIP gift boxes, birthday bonuses, cash bonuses with zero wagering requirements, prize draws, and hospitality events.
Non-VIPs can earn Joy Points each time they spend £5 on bingo or £20 on slots, instant wins, or casino games. Joy Points allow you to enter prize draws and you can also convert them into cash.
