What we recommend instead
Winner Bingo Verdict
With free bingo for newbies and a superbly generous welcome bonus, it’s no surprise that Winner Bingo is a sure-fire hit with new players. However, an exciting and highly rewarding gaming experience that continues to be offered for as long as you choose to play at the site ensures you won’t be left feeling disappointed or bored once you’ve settled in.
Design & Usability
We rather like the look of Winner Bingo as it retains elements of its branding across all the sites in its portfolio. The casino, for example, uses an orange, white, and black colour scheme while the sports site swaps orange for blue. The bingo site’s relaxing gold, white, and purple theme appeals to players of both sexes, and everything you need to know about is advertised on the neatly organised homepage.
For instance, you can see the current welcome offers and most popular promotions, as well as the schedule of games. Your account, the lobby, and the live chat facility are also just a click away.
Software & Gameplay
Winner Bingo runs on Playtech’s Virtue Fusion bingo platform, which is used by many of the UK’s most popular sites. It not only gives you access to a variety of game types, but also allows you to personalise your game settings, and privately chat to players on your buddy list. Winner hosts both networked and exclusive games with the most popular being the BingoLinx specials, which award over £10,000 in prizes every day.
Safety & Security
Payments & Withdrawals
You can choose from more than forty deposit and withdrawal options, including Visa, MasterCard, Paypal, Bank Transfer, Entropay, Paysafecard, Ukash, Skrill, Neteller, and Click2Pay. Although the multiple banking methods are impressive, the average withdrawal processing time (four to seven days) is rather slow.
You can reach the customer support team via email, telephone (24/7), or live chat although the live chat service is only available between 9AM and midnight daily. You may be able to solve your problem by consulting the FAQ, which covers general questions, as well as queries regarding your account, banking, games, and wallet.
Bonuses & Promotions
Newcomers can take advantage of the generous welcome offer that gives you a £50 bonus when you make your first deposit of £10 or more. The bonus is made up of three parts – a £20 multi-variant bingo bonus that can be spent in the Mr. Winner’s Wardrobe, Big Time Winners or Vicky’s Nest rooms; a £10 bingo bonus that can be spent in any room (e.g. Rainbow Riches), and a £10 all games bonus that can be used to play slots. Before you can withdraw any winnings, you must meet the wagering requirements of 4x bingo and 10x games.
You also get to play in the Begin to Win room for newbies for seven days after you register, and once your first week is up, you can continue to play for free if you’re a funded player by visiting the Winner’s Win room every day at 9pm to play the Daily £100 Free Game.
There are plenty of promotions to get involved with at Winner, including £1,000 slots prize draws, cashback on Sundays, Deal or No Deal prize nights, free bingo hours, and BingoLinx events.
Winner Bingo has an app for both Apple and Android devices that can be downloaded free-of-charge from the App Store and Google Play Store, and you can also scan the QR code or request a link via SMS via the dedicated Mobile page on the website. You can play in the same rooms, pre-buy tickets, win the same jackpots, and chat with the CMs and other players just like you would on your desktop.
Variety & Originality
Because Winner offers a whole lot more than bingo games, including poker, live casino, virtual, live betting, and Vegas games, the gaming options are very varied. And, you can access all of these sites using a single login, and fund any wagers with a synchronised wallet.
There are many exclusive bingo rooms including Vicky’s Nest, Mr. Winner’s Wardrobe, Big Time Winners, Winners Lounge, Common Lounge, Big Apple, and Winnersville. Plus, there are dedicated rooms for each of the Virtue Fusion bingo variants such as Rainbow Riches, Deal or No Deal 75, Clover Countdown, Multi Balls, and Joker Jackpot. The networked BingoLinx games run daily at 12PM, 6PM, and 10.30PM and offer prize pools as big as £5,000.
You can play daily games like Winner’s Wardrobe and Piggy Smash, as well as a huge selection of slots including Big Top Tombola, Adventures in Wonderland, Fireworks Frenzy, Iron Man, and Paradise Reels, casino games, and scratch cards.
Loyalty & Rewards
Winner’s VIP programme is comprised of four levels – Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire, and Diamond. Membership is by invitation only, and to keep your current status, you’ll need to maintain your activity. The lowest level, Emerald, gives you access to exclusive promotions, a VIP room, a VIP account manager, 1% daily cashback, and monthly bonuses of up to £25 while the highest level, Diamond, gives you many of the same benefits as well as entry to VIP draws, special gifts and bonuses throughout the year, 10% daily cashback, and monthly bonuses of up to £125. Even if you fail to gain access to the VIP programme, you’ll still earn loyalty points for playing real-money games and making deposits, and you can exchange your points for bonus money.
