What we recommend instead
Vampire Bingo Verdict
Vampire Bingo is a slightly disappointing site, because it looks great and has a really fun theme, but under the surface it’s very standard. Despite a great looking and navigable website, the software, promotions and games underneath are all pretty standard (which is not to say bad). It’s a shame the theme isn’t seen throughout. A good chat community makes up for this somewhat.
Design & Usability
Vampire Bingo certainly goes the whole hog when it comes to design, featuring a full-page vampire background in a cartoonish, fun style. There’s even a bingo ball moon! The theme and purple colour scheme are great and the site’s overall design is well thought out.
Navigation is a cinch thanks to big, clear buttons and a dedicated page for everything you can think of. The site conveniently has a lot of floating buttons, not just for live help but also friend referral, social links and the site’s blog. They smoothly pop out to give you more information.
Software & Gameplay
With Cozy Games software powering the bingo, Vampire Bingo is reliable and fast. The bingo console isn’t all that pretty, but it works and it’s easy to use. Chat has a decent window size and lots of customisable options, plus account options are easily found.
Chat rooms are pretty busy, with a good number of users even in the daytime and chat hosts on call to keep things flowing. Perhaps the strong theme helps to build the community.
Safety & Security
Vampire Bingo is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and Isle of Man Gambling Commission. As with most Cozy sites, they have the iTech certification for the fairness of their random number generator. Transactions are protected by the COMODO Secure Digital certificate.
Payments & Withdrawals
The payment methods at Vampire Bingo are a little unbalanced, with Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, Delta, Switch, Solo, Neteller and PaySafeCard. Plenty of card options but a bit lacking on the electronic front.
Depositing here is nice and simple, not needing a pop-up window or complex forms. You can also easily select offers to add to your deposit using a little list, or enter a bonus code. Withdrawal times aim for 2-3 working days, which is nice and fast.
Vampire Bingo players have access to all the key contact methods; 24/7 live chat, a phone number, email and even a helpdesk-style ticket system. It’s great to see the full set on a site and the addition of the ticket system is great for non-urgent account questions. Response times are quick and staff get positive reviews all around.
Last but not least, the FAQ page is very thorough and can be viewed by sections. You won’t struggle to find help here.
Bonuses & Promotions
New players have a huge welcome bonus to look forward to with Vampire Bingo. The first deposit is eligible for a 500% bonus, then 350% on the second and 300% on the third! So, a £10 deposit nets you £60 to play with. Be warned, however, that the wagering requirement on this is also huge; you’ll need to wager it through eight times before you can withdraw.
Otherwise promotions are fairly standard for Cozy Games sites, but within that you’ll see some fun options like a daily raffle and jackpot bonuses. Check out the blog for bonus codes too. The real downside here is a lack of bespoke promotions that play with the vampire theme; an opportunity missed.
Vampire Bingo has a dedicated page to help you demystify the mobile. While they unfortunately lack a dedicated app, you can access the site on mobile devices through a browser. The site is compatible with android and iOS phones and tablets. The slot selection is slightly reduced on mobile, but still pretty large.
The mobile view is pretty good, even on a small screen, as expected from Cozy Games. Sadly, the bingo is missing chat which is a big turn off if you like to join in chat games.
Variety & Originality
This is a surprise, given the strength of their theme in other regards. There is plenty of variety fortunately, in the form of 90 ball, 80 ball, 75 ball and 30 ball speed bingo. Free bingo helps to add some variety too, with a two-tier system.
The slots offering is similarly standard, though it’s worth saying that the Cozy selection is good and extensive. It would take you a long time to try all these games and their bonus features.
Loyalty & Rewards
Unfortunately, there is no VIP programme mentioned on Vampire Bingo, so you won’t find any special incentives. They do have the standard Cozy Games loyalty points system, where wagering £1 on bingo gets you 1 point. You can advance through four tiers, from Silver to SVIP, which entitles you to bigger bonuses on your deposits.
It’s always good to see some kind of advancement possible on a bingo site, but it’s hardly an enticing reward or anything that will make you feel valued.
