If you’re looking for a well-known site at which to play bingo online, you could scarcely hope for a more familiar and trusted name than Bet365.
The company has been around since 2000, when it was founded in a portakabin in Stoke-on-Trent, establishing a presence on the web the following year. Unsurprisingly, it is now a formidable online gambling network, with sections of the site dedicated to sports and in-play betting, casino and live casino games, poker and – of course – some of the top bingo online.
As you might expect, Bet365 serves up an in-depth selection of bingo-centred promos and bonuses for its members to take advantage of. These are naturally liable to vary over time, but when we visited the site to write this review, we came across the likes of:
- Cash bonuses
- Slots bonuses
- Bingo bonuses
- Opportunities to win Loyalty Points
- Double jackpots
- Assorted prizes
It’s also worth noting that you can try out various free bingo games, competing for prizes.
Games & software
You’ll find all of the popular types of online bingo at Bet365 that you would probably expect to see, given this brand’s considerable renown in the gambling sphere.
The finest in 75-ball, 80-ball and 90-ball bingo rooms are all available to experience, with the names of the various bingo rooms – some of which are specials – including the likes of Cash Cubes, Rainbow Riches Bingo, Deal Or No Deal Bingo 75, Fame and Fortune Hunter and Lucky Numbers Bingo.
Whether you try your hand at any of these bingo rooms or instead free games encompassing such options as Superbooks and BOGOF games, you will be able to enjoy an intuitive, sensibly laid-out interface and compete for hefty prizes.
The game play experience is smooth and slick, as is the Bet365 website in general, which manages to be understated and classy where it needs to be, but also inject just enough graphical flair to leave you feeling that this isn’t ‘just another place’ for playing online bingo.
Finally, we should highlight the fact that even in the bingo section of the site, you can still revel in an assortment of high-quality non-bingo games. Examples include slots like Book of Horus, Love Struck, Rainbow Riches, Striker Goes Wild Jackpot and Britain’s Got Talent Superstar, as well as scratchcards, poker, blackjack, baccarat and roulette titles.
Whether you download the specially optimised smartphone or tablet app or instead just navigate to Bet365’s mobile-ready site directly through your device’s web browser, you can expect a sophisticated experience.
Like the desktop version of the site, the mobile-optimised Bet365 bingo portal incorporates various shades of purple and pink in its design, and exudes refinement.
Not only are suitably optimised variants of such bingo rooms as The Press Room and The Catwalk provided through the site in this guise, but as with the desktop site, additional games like Gold Cash, Scorpion Creek and Heartburst Jackpot can also be enjoyed.
The account registration process for Bet365 is done via one page, and it’s all very straightforward; you just need to provide such details as your country of residence, personal information including your first name, surname and date of birth, and contact information like your email address and phone number.
As you progress through the signup form, you’ll also be asked for your home address, the login details that you intend to use, and a four-digit security number that you will need to quote whenever you contact the site support team. It’ll all be complete in the space of a few minutes.
Unlike some rivals, Bet365 frankly spoils its bingo players with a wealth of accepted payment methods, encompassing both ubiquitous and much less obvious options. You can make a deposit with a Visa or MasterCard debit or credit card here, but also with the likes of Apple Pay, PayPal, Paysafecard, Skrill, Neteller or Entropay, among other possibilities.
Click the discreet ‘Help’ link towards the top right-hand corner of the Bet365 bingo homepage, and you’ll open up a support section with all manner of useful information in relation to such subjects as the account verification process, deposits, withdrawals, responsible gambling and more.
The site is available in ‘just’ the three languages of English, Spanish and Swedish, although even this is an improvement on some other places to play bingo online that only offer English.
If you wish to get in touch with the site staff directly, the ‘live chat’ feature can be accessed on a 24 hours a day, seven days a week basis, and you’ve also got the option of sending an email, messaging the help team from your Bet365 account inbox or using one of the Freephone numbers provided.
It would be surprising if Bet365 didn’t serve up some of the best online bingo, given how renowned this brand remains in pretty much every other subcategory of gambling. Well, thankfully, it impresses with its intriguing variety of themed bingo rooms, a stylish and intuitive-to-use website and a support offering that’s as comprehensive as that of almost any competitor.
