Bingo Flame Review - Site Reviews
Bingo Flame professes to offer “hot bingo” so we were hoping not to have our fingers burned by this brand. The home page is quite bland with a couple of bingo balls but an abundance of rotating banners, not much thought has gone into the design of this site. There is a horizontal navigation menu under the Bingo Flame logo and a banner displaying the welcome bonuses. Details of the most recent winners, the fact that the site is multi-currency and mention of the promotions can all be seen on the landing page.
To register with Bingo Flame you simply have to click the Join Now button at the top of the screen and the sign up form will open. As part of the Live Bingo Network you may find that you have issues at registration trying to create an original username. At sign-up you have the choice of four currencies (GBP, EUR, USD or SEK) and two languages (English and Spanish).
From the lobby of Bingo Flame you can see the games available, not only bingo but also the slots and casino style games that the brand has to offer. You are presented with a few details about each room that include the game type (75, 80 and 90 ball games were available at the time of the review), the price per ticket, the pot prize, the progressive jackpot value and the number of players in the room. You can also view a list of players in each room if you wish which is helpful if you are looking for one of your friends.
In the Bingo Flame rooms you may find that the layout is familiar and this is because there are a number of brands online that use the Cozy Games bingo software. Your bingo cards are in the centre of the screen with the purchasing options above the cards. As with all brands using this software the ticket price is not shown whilst a game is in play so please be aware that the price may be different to that shown in the lobby and you may end up spending more than planned. Also if you have not yet made a deposit with Bingo Flame then you are restricted in the number of tickets that you can buy, just 15 per game.
The chat is off to the right of your screen and this is where you interact with other players and the hosts. However the chat hosts at Bingo Flame seem a little “smiley happy”, constantly posting chat smilies which are animated. This often makes reading chat hard on the eyes.
Above your bingo cards you will find details of the game in play, the prize money on offer and information about the progressive jackpot and how to win it. The pot prize money is not great at Bingo Flame, we played a 10p game with 23 other players and the prizes were one line for £2.76, two lines for £4.36 and a full house for £6.89.
When you take into consideration that the minimum withdrawal amount from Bingo Flame is £50 you have to ask if you are ever going to be in a position to withdraw funds with pot prizes so low. We do suggest reading our Bingo Flame Bonus Page because the high minimum withdrawal amount and low pot prizes are just part of the problem with Bingo Flame and winning enough to withdraw.
Bingo Flame also has a limited promotional schedule with very little offered to keep a player coming back to this brand. In our opinion it’s not a site that we would recommend.
