What we recommend instead
Sailor Bingo Verdict
We’re confident that Sailor Bingo won’t regret moving to the Real Bingo Network as wager-free sites are becoming more popular by the day. Add a few more promotions, and Sailor Bingo would easily rival other Dragonfish bingo sites. In the meantime, why not check it out if you like the thought of free bingo cards and free spins and a vast range of bingo rooms?
Design & Usability
The theme that’s used at Sailor Bingo is as you’d expect. Images of a boat sailing across clear-blue seas towards a tropical island are accompanied by the Sailor Bingo logo, the latter of which is accompanied by an anchor.
We rather like how the clean white background contrasts with the blue skies and sea while purple tones are used for the menus and active tabs.
Navigating is simple as it’s easy to spot the six tabs on the main menu, as well as the colourful “Join Now” and “Login” buttons at the top.
The homepage gives you a quick overview of the welcome offer as well as some of the bingo games that you can play.
Software & Gameplay
Sailor Bingo uses the highly regarded Dragonfish software platform from 888 Limited. It boasts a user-friendly interface which extends to the cashier and the lobby, and you can find your favourite games quickly and easily thanks to the tabs that run along the top of the games lobby.
Safety & Security
Bingo Idol is jointly licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Government of Gibraltar. The site also holds the eCOGRA seal of approval.
The Random Number Generator (RNG) software has been independently tested to ensure that the games provide fair outcomes. Your personal and financial information are also protected thanks to SSL encryption.
Payments & Withdrawals
You can make fee-free deposits and withdrawals at Sailor Bingo using Wire Transfer, MasterCard, Visa, Neteller, Paypal, Paysafecard, and Entropay.
It takes up to 48 hours for withdrawal requests to be approved, and a further 5 working days to receive funds via a debit/credit card or 2-3 days for e-wallets.
The support team are on-hand via the Help Room (which is effectively a chat room), the online contact form, and telephone.
Both the telephone line and the Help Room are available 7 days a week between 10 AM and 2 AM, and there’s also a dedicated Help page which includes a list of FAQ.
Bonuses & Promotions
You won’t find any bingo bonuses on offer at Sailor Bingo as the Real Bingo Network’s promotions consist of free game cards and free spins, all of which have zero wagering requirements.
The welcome offer gives you £40 of bingo tickets to play Big Bang as well as 50 free spins on Irish Luck. All winnings are paid as real cash and can be withdrawn immediately.
Currently, there are no other promotions on offer at Sailor Bingo. While this is disappointing to an extent, we suspect it’s because the site has very recently changed software platforms and bingo networks, so hopefully, there’ll be some to come.
Terms and Conditions: First time depositors only. Min deposit £10. Max offer: Bingo Tickets worth £40 (£40 to play BIG BANG) & 50 Pending Free Spins (Irish luck, win cap of £1, wins are set at min £0). Pending Free Spins will be available once £5 of deposit funds have been wagered. Bingo Tickets/Free spins are valid for 7 days. All winnings are real money and cashable at any time. Valid until further notice. General withdrawal restrictions & full T&Cs apply.
No mobile apps are available for Sailor Bingo players as the website is optimised for smartphones and tablets. Head to the website using your mobile device’s browser and take your pick of hundreds of mobile-friendly bingo games, slots, and instant wins.
Variety & Originality
There are 15 network-exclusive bingo site rooms to enjoy at Sailor Bingo, with 90-ball and 75-ball games running throughout the day and night.
The rooms include Wonky, Gobsmacked, Last Call, Kaching, Wednesday Chic, Thursday Groove, and Hit 52. You can also take part in daily guaranteed jackpot games which offer amounts of £500 to £10,000, and there are three free bingo rooms and a handful of VIP rooms.
