What we recommend instead
Rocket Bingo Verdict
If we could make any significant improvements to the site, it would be to lower the bonus wagering requirements, extend the support hours, and speed up the withdrawal times.
But, as Rocket Bingo offers more payment options as well as some exclusive games and promotions than many of its sister sites, we believe it offers players a better playing experience as a result. So, if you fancy being treated to daily cashback and free spins, free bingo games, and an excellent range of side games, why not take a closer look?
Design & Usability
Up until 2018, Rocket Bingo was a colourful site filled with cartoon images of space rockets, astronauts, and shooting stars in reds, whites, and blues. However, this year, it was treated to a fresh new design that’s distinctly more adult and sophisticated.
A background of stars, planet, and meteors floats by as if you were viewing it through a kaleidoscope, and the brand logo (complete with a space rocket) sits at the top of the site.
The Mega Wheel game spins in the centre of the screen to show viewers what potential prizes are on offer if they become funded players, and a laughing female wearing an astronaut’s helmet gazes at it from the right-hand side.
Just below the login area, there’s a menu that contains pages for Bingo, Trophies, Promotions, and All Games. The “Join Now” button next to it lets you create a new account in mere minutes.
An upbeat introduction to Rocket is located at the bottom of the homepage, and above it, you can view recent wins, membership benefits, bingo game highlights, and popular slots.
Software & Gameplay
Rocket Bingo uses Jumpman Gaming’s 15 Network software, which is fast, reliable, and lets you view the different game types by filters and categories. The bingo lobby shows you what time the next games start, how much tickets cost, what prizes are on offer, and how many players are currently in each room.
However, there are also disadvantages when it comes to the software such as the limited room opening hours and the low number of 75-ball games.
Safety & Security
Payments & Withdrawals
Although some brands on the 15 Network only accept debit/credit cards (e.g. Bingo Boutique), we’re pleased to report that Rocket Bingo offers more flexible payment options. The current choices include Visa, Maestro, MasterCard, Maestro, Paypal, Paysafecard, and Pay by Mobile.
You can deposit and withdraw as little as £10 per time. As soon as you submit a withdrawal request, it begins a rather lengthy 72-hour pending period, and once approved, the funds should reach you within one to three business days.
It’s great to see that there’s a live chat service for those of you who need a quicker response than email. However, it’s only operational between 9.30 AM and 6 PM on weekdays. Plus, there’s no telephone support.
Bonuses & Promotions
If you make a first deposit of £10 or more at Rocket Bingo, you’re entitled to a spin on the Mega Wheel. Admittedly, the Wheel contains some pretty impressive prizes, including up to 500 free spins on Fluffy Favourites and £10 Amazon vouchers. However, when you look more closely at the terms and conditions, you’ll discover that you must fulfil the significantly high 65x wagering requirements before you can convert any bonus winnings to real cash. Plus, there’s the possibility that you might win nothing at all.
On a more positive note, Rocket Bingo boasts a number of unique promotions that aren’t available at its sister sites, as well as networked promotions which you’ll also encounter at 15 Network brands such as Bingo Boutique.
The highlights include a weekly Facebook competition called Rocket Puzzles that gives you the chance to win Love2Shop and Amazon vouchers, a weekly free Cash Blast jackpot game, the Daily Launch daily free jackpot game, free £1 bingo games for both funded and non-funded players, double daily real cashback for newbies, and Happy Hours.
There’s no need to download any mobile apps as the Rocket Bingo website works just as well with mobile internet browsers as it does with desktop browsers. It would just be useful if Rocket Bingo included a section on mobile bingo.
Variety & Originality
There are eight bingo games that you can enjoy at Rocket Bingo – Lucky Stars (1p-5p per ticket), Genuine Free Bingo (daily free games), Cash Blast (a £50 jackpot game that costs 20p per card), Daily Launch (a free-to-enter £10 jackpot game that runs at 7 PM), Free Bingo, VIP Free Bingo, Fair & Square (1p per card), and Pay Day Jackpot (a £1k game that costs 50p per ticket).
The “Hot Slots” include Rainbrew, Fortunium, Starburst, Immortal Romance, Bonanza, The Wild Chase, Fluffy Favourites, Mega Moolah, Irish Luck, Ozwin’s Jackpots, and Kingdom of Cash.
There are not that many table games, instants, and casual games compared to the slots, but if you’re a fan, you can play titles like Jacks or Better, World Cup Keno, Texas Hold’em Pro, Tennis Scratch, Spin Lotto, Big Money Slingo, Blackjack, and European Roulette.
Loyalty & Rewards
You earn Kudos from the moment that you start depositing and playing at Rocket Bingo, and the more Kudos you earn, the more quickly you’ll move through the five different VIP levels.
At Level 1 (Member), you don’t get daily cashback, but you do receive five free daily spins and birthday bonuses. Make it to Level 2 (Bronze), and you get 1% daily cashback, plus the same perks as Level 1 VIPs. At Level 3 (Silver), the number of daily free spins increases to ten and daily cashback to 3%. And, at the top two levels (Gold and Black), you get 5% to 10% cashback and fifteen to twenty free spins respectively.
