Swanky Bingo has a glitzy, casino style which is reflected in a big slots catalogue. This Cozygames site is part of the Live Bingo Network, so you can expect similar offerings to Hunnie Bingo and LMAO Bingo, but will Swanky Bingo prove to be as fancy as its name?
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, reflecting that the site is new for 2017 and uses an updated template compared to some Cozy sites. 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.
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.
The promotions at Swanky Bingo pretty much reflect all Cozy sites, so there’s nothing unique here, but they’re still pretty strong. This site also displays them nicely with some large tiles and refreshed artwork. The site has regular jackpot bingo and special chat games like the Break Time Quizzer. Promotions are regularly added as well, with 2017 seeing some extra daily raffles and more.
The welcome bonus shines here with a 500% bonus on your first deposit, 350% on your second and 300% on your third, plus £15 before you even deposit and £1 each day for the first 60 days that you log in!
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.
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.
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 and Isle of Man Gambling Commission. Last but not least, they have policies in place to help you control spending and fight problem gambling.
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 11 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.
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.
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.
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!
