When looking for a place to play top bingo online, you might not have initially thought of Lucky Pants Bingo. It's a relatively recent addition to the range of respectable bingo sites online, having only started out in 2013, but it's made a good impression in little time.
The site's relative newness is reflected in its scarcity of games besides bingo, but you might actually prefer this more focused approach – especially when you see the big bonuses on offer.
The huge welcome bonus certainly sweetens the deal of registering with Lucky Pants Bingo and placing your first deposit on it – but be careful to heed the wagering requirements, as they are pretty steep with this particular offer.
Simply signing up a real money account with this online bingo portal grants you membership of the Lucky Club, the loyalty scheme where you can climb through the ranks to amass higher cashback and more free spins, cards and even bingo games.
Games & Software:
In the variety stakes, Lucky Pants Bingo compares favourably to the best online bingo sites. You can start with 90-ball bingo – for UK customers, the most traditional type of bingo online – but also try your hand at, say, 75-ball bingo, where each game has its own pattern.
One particularly enticing variant of 75-ball bingo also represented at Lucky Pants Bingo is 5-line bingo. Particularly popular in Sweden, it involves playing online bingo until every single number is covered. The site usefully details the somewhat complex rules for this unorthodox flavour of bingo.
For a site with bingo in its name, Lucky Pants Bingo offers an enticingly varied selection of non-bingo games, too – including slots, scratch, arcade and card titles. You might spot a few familiar names among those games, such as Aloha! Cluster Pays and Moon Princess.
All of the site's bingo games are a breeze to play, thanks to the site's use of eyecon software. Other developers from which the site has sourced games include NetEnt, Microgaming, IGT and Core Gaming – so despite the site's freshness, playing on it can feel reassuringly familiar.
If you want to compete for especially big money, just scroll down on the lobby page until you see the 'Hot Jackpots' section, where those games offering progressive jackpots are marked out by a red label reading 'Progressive'. In terms of graphics and speed, the site's games easily impress.
Lucky Pants Bingo doesn't have a mobile app, but it scarcely feels like it needs one; loading up the site on a smartphone or tablet leaves you with a responsive and seamless experience that takes account of your device's particular screen dimensions.
The signup process is pretty simple and takes you through just two short and easy-to-digest sections: the personal and then contact section. In the latter, you can specify strictly either the pound or the Euro as your account currency, with no currencies beside these two currently supported.
As soon as you hit the button to create your account, Lucky Pants Bingo puts the available payment options at the forefront – so let's look a little closer at them...
After registering, you can easily input the payment details for a Mastercard, Maestro or Visa card or use Neteller, PayPal or paysafecard to place your deposit.
After depositing, you can only withdraw through the same payment method – unless it was Mastercard, in which case, you can use a different withdrawal method, subject to approval.
We were particularly impressed by how easy it is to reach Lucky Pants Bingo's customer support team. Simply clicking 'Help' lets you quickly see freephone and landline numbers as well as three separate email addresses for account-related, promotion-related or VIP-related queries.
It's easy to get a prompt response; Lucky Pants Bingo pledges to reply to emails within 24 hours of their receipt. Then there's the Live Chat amenity, also accessible from the Help page, for when you would like a Support Team agent to reply to your questions in real time.
However, you might not even need any of this if your query is already well-served by the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section, which touches on various subjects.
By accident or design, the stripped-down approach to Lucky Pants Bingo makes the site delightfully simple to use as and when you fancy, with no need to download any additional software. The chat rooms and chat games also add to the pleasantly friendly feel for novice and veteran players alike.
