Butlins Bingo Review - Site Reviews
On 2nd February 2016 Butlins Bingo closed. The following details are for information purposes only and will no longer be updated.
Butlins Bingo, the brand from the famous holiday camp but not a Red Coat in sight when you land on the home page! To be honest, the landing page for Butlins Bingo is a little bland. Whilst it has the usual navigation menu, a rather large bingo ball and the logo for the site there is nothing much else happening. Do Butlins Bingo really believe that their name is enough to get players to take the time to register and play?
Talking of registration, this is standard to the St Minver network with no financial details required at the point of sign-up. Just enter your name, date of birth, email, mobile number and choose a username and you are ready to play at Butlins Bingo. As soon as you have completed registration you are taken to the bingo lobby. After a couple of minutes refresh the page and 10p will show in your bonus balance, to activate the full £1 free from this brand you need to click a link in the welcome email.
The Butlins Bingo lobby lists two types of bingo games, 75 and 90 ball, but actually there are a selection of 80 ball bingo games on offer from this brand as well – these are played in the Bingo Party Live room at certain times of the day currently. At the time of the review 80 ball had only just been introduced to the G2 Gtech sites so it could be that we see a change on the lobby layout to incorporate a section for 80 ball games. You can see from the lobby details of all the rooms including their name, time until the next game, price per ticket, number of players, game prize and any progressive jackpot value if available.
When you have chosen a room simply click “Play Now” and the room will open although they do take a little longer to load than some other brands that offer instant play. Chat does not appear to either be working or is unavailable to players who have yet to make a deposit. When it is available it appears to the left of the screen, under the instant win games. Above that are game details that include prizes and the “Balls To Bingo” feature. This shows you how many numbers players, and yourself, need to win the current game. Your tickets and call board are to the right of the screen and this is where your ticket purchasing options appear.
Like all the sites on this network, Butlins Bingo offers a great selection of promotional offers. From their free bingo days that tend to happen once a month to the monthly big guaranteed jackpot games – there is plenty to do at this site but you shouldn’t take our word for it. With £1 free to ‘try before you buy’ you have nothing to lose by checking Butlins Bingo out for yourself.
