Bingo Chimp Review - Site Reviews
Bingo Chimp is part of the Best Bingo Network using the Cozy Games software platform and from the moment you land at the home page you can see that some effort has been put into the design of the home page. A cheeky chimp greets you with details of the welcome bonuses offered by this brand and the home page boasts previews of the games available and a little about the promotions that Bingo Chimp has to offer.
The registration form for Bingo Chimp doesn’t require many details, just your chosen username, password, email address and date of birth along with password hints that you have to set. It’s at this point that issues may arise if your email address is already registered with one of the other brands.
Although Bingo Chimp offers a £15 free no deposit required welcome bonus this is not credited to your account instantly; you need to validate your account through your welcome email (if you receive it, you may have problems if you're signed up elsewhere on the network). If the welcome email is not forthcoming, as it wasn’t for us, you need to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Verify Account”. You cannot even visit the bingo lobby until your account has been verified which is likely to make you move along to one of the other many bingo sites available on the Internet today!
If you bother to faff about with actually getting into the site, let alone getting your welcome bonus, then by clicking “Game Lobby” in the left hand navigation menu you will be taken to a list of rooms at Bingo Chimp. Here you will see a number of rooms, one of which is restricted access to depositing players and is a networked room. At the time of the review Bingo Chimp had just three rooms open, two 90 ball and one 80 ball but the site does offer 75 and sometimes 30 ball bingo as well.
As well as bingo there are a selection of instant win games also available at Bingo Chimp and you can use both bonus funds and real cash to play the slots. When you haven’t made a deposit to Bingo Chimp you should be aware that the site only allows you to buy 15 cards for each bingo game.
Personally there are too many issues with Bingo Chimp for me to recommend this brand to any player; all the faffing about to get your bonus, high wagering requirements, high minimum withdrawal and restricted ticket purchasing for the non-depositing player but you have the chance to check it all out yourself with a no deposit required welcome bonus.
