Swanky Bingo Verdict
Swanky Bingo is a strong site and it has a few little touches that make it stand out from other Cozy sites, through the core games and promotions are largely the same. There are plenty of things to try out and ways to win here, so if you can get chat going you should be on to a winner. Very swanky!
Design & Usability
Swanky Bingo hits you hard on the home page, with a stylish design packed with glamour. A rich black and gold colour scheme is supported by photography and animation to make the site feel like a high-end casino, more than a bingo hall.
The actual site design is nice and clean and uses an updated Jumpman template. We found no missing sections or problems on the site, plus it has some nice extras like quick buttons for social media and live support.
Software & Gameplay
The lobby is built into the page at Swanky Bingo, which lacks the bells and whistles of a software lobby but is pretty convenient. On clicking a room you’ll get the software, which loads very fast but isn’t all that great looking. It’s fine, but doesn’t appear half as new as the site itself.
New players will find this bingo layout easy to understand. Buying tickets is simple and chat is easy to read, though the window could be larger. Chat is a little on the quiet side here but you will find hosts easily so it’ll get moving if you join in.
Safety & Security
Swanky Bingo has a full security certificate and uses Trustwave security to protect all transactions on site. They also have the iTech Labs certification for a fully tested random number generator.
The site is fully licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. Last but not least, they have policies in place to help you control spending and fight problem gambling.
Payments & Withdrawals
Swanky Bingo has a straightforward cashier system which lets you withdraw and deposit on the main site, with a set of quick buttons for amounts, bonuses and also coupon codes. Withdrawals are listed as taking 2-3 working days, note that this may just be the processing time at the site’s end, but it’s still pretty good.
For payments, this site accepts a big variety of debit and credit cards, plus e-wallets like Neteller, Boku Mobile Payments and PaySafeCard. More would be nice but it’s a good mixture.
Pop to the Help page to see three contact methods for Swanky Bingo. They have a ticket system, email and live chat, but sadly no phone. Though this is preferred by some players, by and large it’s better to have live chat over phone if you can’t have both. The chat is open 24/7 which helps in that regard.
The team are friendly and full of beans, plus you have access to a pretty thorough FAQ section so you shouldn’t need them much.
Bonuses & Promotions
At Swanky Bingo, new players can enjoy an exciting welcome offer where they have the chance to win up to 500 Free Bonus Spins on the Mega Wheel with their first deposit of £10 or more. With heaps of prizes on offer, including Amazon vouchers and bonus spins, players could be in for a treat. Bonus spins can be redeemed on the extremely popular slot game, Fluffy Favourites. However, the wagering requirement is 65x for any bonus credit and winnings on bonus spins are capped.
The promotions section at Swanky Bingo has a lot to offer, from Cash Drop, Happy Hours and even a Birthday Bonus where players can grab some Happy Birthday Free Spins!
Terms & Conditions: New Players Only, Min Deposit £10.00, £8.00 Max Win Per 10 Spins, Max Bonus Equal To Lifetime Deposits (Up To £250.00), 65x Wagering Requirements And Full T&Cs Apply.
Swanky Bingo does not have any apps, but they do have a useful mobile page to explain their mobile setup. You can visit the site through your phone or tablet browser and access the majority of the games catalogue.
The mobile page is well made and easy to navigate using a dropdown menu, but doesn’t really provide a full bingo experience. Slots look better in this mode. Lacking chat, this service is really only good for a quick flutter when you’re out and about.
Variety & Originality
Swanky Bingo has a good variety, including 90 ball, 80 ball, 75 ball, 50 ball and 30 ball bingo games. While there’s quite a lot to try out, there’s nothing unique to this site. This site has 14 rooms, including three for special jackpots and a free bingo offering. It’s a nice setup but doesn’t stand out.
You get a good set of slots here, with a built-in rating system so players will make it clear which ones are the most popular.
Loyalty & Rewards
Swanky Bingo has information on their VIP programme on the promotions page, though it’s a little unclear how much you need to actually spend to progress. There are five tiers from Bronze to Diamond which appear to be invite only.
Rising the tiers grants some solid rewards, such as weekly bingo bonuses, free bingo, levelling up bonuses, loyalty points treats, a personal manager, VIP birthday treats and more. The offers are interesting but could give a little more detail.
