From the moment you arrive at the site, Rocket Bingo takes off with a futuristic theme. Part of the 15 Network and powered by Jumpman Gaming, you can expect quality games. This site should be fast and fun, but does it get off the launch pad?
Rocket Bingo greets you just as you’d expect, with rockets soaring across the sky. The cartoonish artwork is good and doesn’t take over the site too much. The home page presents their welcome bonus with more space age graphics, plus it has lots of little sections for things like testimonials, welcoming information and social media.
Getting around is pretty straightforward, though oddly the site is missing a bingo page, so you can’t see what’s on offer until you register. You can however see their free bingo offering, of which they’re pretty proud. The help section is also a little confusing, presenting you with a page of text rather than clear options.
The Rocket Bingo site only offers two forms of contact, a phone line and email. It’s a shame to have no live chat function, though hosts will likely help you with general questions. It’s unclear whether the phone number is toll free; it doesn’t appear to be.
Though the help page is in need of a good tidying, on the plus side, there’s plenty of information to read. The support team seem to have a positive reputation.
Rocket Bingo has a good selection of promotions, ranging from simple offers like reward points for liking them on Facebook to special jackpot hours. They specifically celebrate their free bingo offers, such as Mission Control - £10 free bingo every Tuesday and Thursday at 9pm. You’ll also find giveaways and chat games, so there’s quite a variety.
The welcome bonus here is a flat £20 free for depositing £10. However, this is boosted by a spin of the bonus wheel, which can net you an extra £5 to £2500 in bonus cash! This is a fun addition, but do bear in mind that you’ll have to complete a four-times wagering requirement on that cash.
Rocket Bingo is fuelled by Jumpman Gaming software and packs a punch, loading nice and fast. The lobby is fairly simplistic, but you do have quick access to account controls, banking, slots and bingo.
The bingo console itself is a little cluttered, with a lot of information packed in. Chat is given quite a short window as a result. While the bingo plays nicely and looks fine, a little more work would be nice and chat itself is quiet. We saw no host, even in the help room.
Unfortunately, Rocket Bingo has no app for either iTunes or Google’s Play Store. They do however let you connect via a mobile browser, which should work on most platforms. The mobile site is pretty neat and succinct, with the same graphics at the main site, though not in the bingo rooms. We found it slow to load, but that may be a one-off.
Once in, you’ll see a pretty basic bingo layout which doesn’t really compare to the desktop version. There’s also no chat, which is a common feature at most sites. While this is a lacklustre offering, it’s more than enough for just jumping on for a quick go.
Rocket Bingo is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and Alderney Gambling Control Commission. This site has a certificate of approval from SQS, an independent body for testing gambling software.
The downside to this site is a lack of an up-to-date security certificate regarding your internet connection. Though they undoubtedly use some form of security, this needs to be brought up to date and made clear on the site.
Rocket Bingo has limited variety but they do offer some original ideas. The site offers 90 ball and 75 ball and while more types would be good, they do have a ton of free bingo on offer. There are three standard free bingo rooms in 90 ball (one of them VIP locked) as well as a newbie’s free bingo room and we counted five regular and one-off free bingo events! So, while type is limited, there’s a lot to find and do.
You also have access to various instants and a large selection over a hundred slots, of varying quality. Not a top-notch selection, but plenty to check out.
Unfortunately, this site has a big drawback in that they accept no e-wallet payments. They do accept all the main credit and debit cards like MasterCard and Visa, but nothing electronic only. Not even PaySafeCard is supported. This is no bother at all for card users, but can stop some players entirely, so it puts them way behind the competition.
Otherwise, Rocket Bingo uses a single page banking system which is nice and straightforward. While the text could be bigger, it’s pretty easy to use. You can enter promotional codes here and there are quick buttons for choosing your amounts. Withdrawing uses the same method and takes around 3-5 working days, which is standard.
Rocket Bingo allows players to collect loyalty points, which you earn for playing and can be converted to bonus cash. For those who stick around, there’s also a VIP scheme on five tiers, with the bottom being the default.
The cost of progressing through tiers is unclear, but does come with good benefits. You can gain re-deposit bonuses, monthly cashback and birthday bonuses, plus there’s a hint of mystery gifts. Add to this a VIP free bingo game and a ‘VIP of the Month’ award and you have a fairly attractive programme. VIP of the Month is essentially a wagering competition, which nets the winner a mystery prize.
Rocket Bingo is a promising site that just needs to clear up a few negative areas to compete with other sites. Despite these problems, the site has some good offerings, with the free bingo standing out. Add in some fun promotions and the pleasing artwork and you have a good bingo site that just needs a little more rocket fuel to get going.
