What we recommend instead
Reem Bingo Verdict
Reem Bingo is a very snazzy looking site and it seems to have a buzzing set of chatters. The site has a nice feel to it but doesn’t offer anything special that you can’t get elsewhere. This is worth checking out for a bonus and a little play but it needs more to have any longevity.
Design & Usability
This site really stands out in terms of design, having a rich, black background reminiscent of high end casinos. This is balanced out with some fun cartoon characters who are definitely meant to resemble the glamorous ‘reem’ cast of The Only Way is Essex! The style is fun and feels different and is supported by some nice welcome text.
The smartness of the design ties in nicely to the layout, which is a sleek and smart, a slight step up from the standard template. However, it should be said that the design does not extend to all sections of the site.
Software & Gameplay
The lobby for Reem Bingo is pretty much the same as the LBN sister sites, a simple list built into the main site. It’s simple, but effective. The bingo itself is the same really, a basic layout but it works just fine and runs fast. It sports the main site’s colour scheme and looks pretty good.
Importantly, there seems to be a good set of chatters at Reem Bingo. Rooms were very busy in the middle of the afternoon and all had hosts and games, so this is a great sign.
Safety & Security
Reem Bingo is licensed and regulated by the Isle of Man Gambling Commission and the UK Gambling Commission, so everything is above board and correct. The site has some useful responsible gaming information which can help players avoid problem gambling.
The site’s fairness is ensured by the iTech Labs certification and they also have a secure site, with SSL encryption to protect payments, the industry standard.
Payments & Withdrawals
Reem Bingo processes withdrawals in 2-3 working days, so they should arrive at your bank pretty fast. The site has a quick and simple banking system which you’ll find in the My Account area, with quick buttons to speed things up. The site also informs you of any requirements before you accept a bonus.
Payment methods accepted include several major credit and debit cards, PaySafeCard and Neteller. Some more e-wallets would certainly help this site.
Clicking on the help link at the top of the site takes you to a small and useful contact page. You can easily access the four methods that Reem Bingo allows for contacting the team. They also have a very detailed FAQ which is sorted by categories.
The team can be reached by phone, live chat and email, which is 24/7. In addition, you can use a helpdesk style ticket system, if you aren’t always watching your emails. This is a great selection and covers all kinds of users.
Bonuses & Promotions
Reem Bingo offers the usual Cozy promotion set, so there’s nothing special here, but still it’s a good selection. You have session bingo with £100 guaranteed jackpots, free bingo tournaments, weekly and monthly jackpots and a nice selection of chat games too.
The welcome bonus is huge here as with most bingo sites in the UK, offering up to 500% on your first deposit, 350% on your second and 300% on your third. This has a 4x wagering requirement which is normal. You can also claim £5 just for registering a card, before you risk any money of your own. The site could just use a few original ideas and artwork for the promotions.
Reem Bingo does not have any apps, but they do have a page on the site to direct players to the mobile site. However, this page disappears when you’re logged in, which is something of an oversight. The mobile site can be found just by entering the site address into your phone or tablet browser. The mobile version of the site is like a scaled down version of the main site and fits well on the small screen.
The game selection is a little reduced and the actual bingo software isn’t as nice as the site, just like the main site really. Lack of chat is a big downside but it’s fine for a little play.
Variety & Originality
Reem Bingo offers 90 ball, 80 ball, 75 ball, 50 ball and 30 ball so you can’t knock them for variety in that department. However, the rooms offered are the same as any Cozy site rooms and don’t have any special artwork or style to differentiate them. You do have the benefit of some specials, such as free bingo with no deposit needed and a few jackpot rooms.
The slot and casino offerings are pretty good but lacking big names. They offer roulette, blackjack and keno in a few varieties.
Loyalty & Rewards
Reem Bingo has a four-tier reward system. You earn reward points as you play, then you rise up the ranks to get more rewards. You need quite a few points to start the climb, however. The promotions section is actually very thin on details regarding the system.
The site doesn’t even say what the rewards are for climbing tiers but they appear to be deposit bonuses, so nothing especially tempting.
