Epic Bingo Review - Site Reviews
Epic is a word defined by the dictionary as meaning something that “extends beyond the usual or ordinary” so we were expecting great things from Epic Bingo. Unfortunately, the moment you land at the site it is apparent that this is a Cozy Games brand and this means quite a few pitfalls from the hoops you have to jump through to claim the welcome bonus to the high minimum withdrawal amount.
Having said that, if you want to take the time to register and then validate your account, you will have £20 to play games with at Epic Bingo. A plus point for the brand is that you can use the free money to play the slot games too although winnings using bonus funds are not paid out in real cash but bonus money.
Registration is a one click process with just your chosen username, password and date of birth required to get started at the site. However without the validation of your account you are unable to even enter the lobby of Epic Bingo. Once you have completed the validation process you can see what Epic Bingo has to offer. At the time of the review there were three bingo types available, 75, 80 and 90 ball bingo but we do know that some brands also have a 30 ball offering, it simply isn’t available at all times.
From the lobby at Epic Bingo you simply have to choose a room that suits your requirements; you can see the game type, number of players and the progressive jackpot offered. Only some of the rooms are available to non-depositing players, some are linked rooms with other brands on the network and you cannot access these until a deposit has been made.
Once again we find the usual issues that are rife on the Cozy Games software; ticket prices do not show when a game is in play, the chat hosts are a bit “smiley” happy and insist on using text speak or referring to players as hunnie, babes or love and there are restrictions on ticket purchasing to just 15 per game if a deposit has not been made.
Add to this the high minimum withdrawal amount, the wagering requirements on deposits and the obviously foreign chat hosts and Epic Bingo has all the qualities of other brands on the same platform – virtually none!
