Coral has a history dating back to 1926, so if you’re interested in playing online bingo at a site that scores highly for reputability, you really can’t do better than this place. The bingo section is just one part of an extensive gambling website, and you can play basically any type of bingo that comes to mind, ranging from 40 ball bingo to 90 ball bingo. The long list of available promotions includes a generous welcome package.
Games & Software
Whatever you want from your online bingo, you can be fairly sure of finding it at Coral Bingo. 40, 50, 75, 80 and 90 ball bingo are all available, and there’s plenty to excite within these categories as well.
An undoubted highlight among the site’s many bingo options is Rainbow Riches Bingo, which is a 40-ball bingo room incorporating a Progressive Community Jackpot, as well as the colours and branding that you’ll be familiar with if you’ve ever played the Rainbow Riches slot game. Free bingo can be enjoyed during the eight hours each day for which the Allsorts Room is open, and there are some fine branded rooms too, such as Emmerdale Bingo and Coronation Street Bingo.
When you fire up the bingo lobby for the first time, you will be given the choice of either the ‘new lobby’ or ‘classic lobby’, after which, you can get on with enjoying top bingo online across such popular rooms as Bingo Lotto, Big Banker Bingo, Deal or No Deal Bingo and many more.
Whichever one you choose, the graphics are pleasing, the interface design intuitive and the various side games pretty attractive too – you can enjoy slots, scratch and other games within the same window as the chat functionality that does so much to cultivate a lovely atmosphere among players.
It’s all possible thanks to the use of the Playtech platform, also known as Virtue Fusion, which is one of the most respected in today’s online bingo space.
The mobile version of Coral Bingo can be accessed both directly through your smartphone’s web browser and in the form of a downloadable app, although in both cases, it is simply one part of the broader Coral site also including the likes of sports betting, casino games and slots.
A wide range of the best online bingo rooms can be enjoyed at Coral ‘on the go’, encompassing such aforementioned options as Deal or No Deal Bingo, Coronation Street Bingo and Bingo Lotto, all in such beautifully optimised form that you might forget you’re playing via a smaller screen.
The sign-up process is very much what you would expect from a site like this – you will be asked for personal details including the likes of your first name, last name, email address and date of birth, right through to your postcode, desired password and a secret question and answer. The one-page form is logical and before long, you will be revelling in some of the finest and most stimulating bingo online.
You can put down a deposit with any of a wide range of accepted payment methods, including not only the usual obvious options like Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards, but also such slightly lesser-spotted ones as Skrill, ecoPayz, Neteller and Paysafecard.
If you need a bit of assistance while using the site, you may find that your query is answered somewhere in the comprehensive Coral Help Centre that addresses such questions as “How do I deposit?” and “How long do withdrawals take?”
Alternatively, you can get in touch with the site team directly via ‘live chat’, telephone or email. There are separate phone numbers for those calling from the UK, outside the UK and from Ireland.
However, with the site only available in English and support only seemingly able to be provided in English as well, it’s fair to say that foreign-speaking players face more support barriers than English speakers.
We’re impressed with Coral Bingo’s both branded and non-branded games, its many different forms of bingo and its variety of exciting promotions. The site also has a lot of other gambling options for you, while the interface is visually pleasing and intuitive. What’s not to love about Coral Bingo?
