Loony Bingo launched in September 2015, another site using the Cassava software that’s so popular in the online bingo world. The site joins a whole plethora of others under the United Commission hat, brands like Robin Hood, Moon and Polo Bingo. The site boasts a very modern looking homepage, with tablet-friendly design themed around going crazy about bingo, with loads of mad bingo balls in loopy wigs bursting out everywhere. They’re promising £400,000 in jackpots every month and at launched had a very generous welcome bonus that was split between bingo and gaming credits. Their “play with pennies – win thousands!” slogan also promises big prizes for low ticket prices and there is a cash-back deal for regular players.
Colourful is the word for Loony Bingo. It’s clear and simple – and you’re never too far away from a “Play Now” button for one of their big money games. It works brilliantly well on small screens, but for PC players it can feel like a lot of scrolling. This is certainly a site that stands out, though if you prefer something a little more muted while you play you might need sunglasses.
Creating an account only takes a few seconds. Your details are collected over three screens. Remember to have any promotional codes ready and to tick off the contact boxes if you don’t want email and text promotions. If you’ve signed up at other 888 UK Limited sites you may have to spend a second thinking of a new nickname. You’re not asked for any payment details as you set up your account. The cashier is easy enough to find, either through details of the welcome offer or via a button that’s always at the top right of the screen.
Clicking Play Now launches a full-screen pop-up lobby with those crazy balls screaming at you again. Available games are split between “Live Bingo” games that are playing currently; “Easy Peasy” are guaranteed jackpot games playing once every two hours from 10am to 8pm; “Daily Jackpots” lists big prize games through the week, one playing daily; “Mega Jackpots” lists the really big prizes; “Specials” is another set of big-prize games; and “Free bingo” has seven free games.
The lobby will tell you the type of game (Loony Bingo has 90-ball, 75-ball and five-line or Swedish bingo games), the prize, progressive jackpot, ticket prices, time to next game, number of players in the room and the name of the chat host if there is one.
The rooms are easy to understand but not especially exciting. There is chat room to the right where available, with a line of slots and instant games to entertain you above. Your account details run across the top of the screen. Look to the left to buy tickets from the large central game window, which is topped with details of the current game.
Loony Bingo Summary
Is Loony Bingo worth going mad for? That’s a matter of opinion. If you like a bright, breezy site with a sense of humour then you’ll love the wacky look of this site. It has a good choice of games and some big prizes. If you like slots there’s plenty of choice, including established favourites and big progressive jackpots from the likes of Fluffy Favourites and Irish Luck. There are some potentially big prizes, and on our visit it became clear that they’ve already attracted a fair few players. It’s a site that looks ideal for play on mobiles and tablets, so if you like to curl up on your sofa while you enjoy the drop of the balls take a serious look at this crazy site.
Loony Bingo Review – Bingo Games
Welcome Bonus at Loony Bingo
The welcome bonus at Loony Bingo is triggered by your first deposit. Put £10 into your account and you’ll get £20 in bingo credits and £20 to spend on slots. That 400% offer is worth a maximum of £100 in bonus funds.
Game Options at Loony Bingo
You can play 90-ball, 75-ball and five-line or Swedish Bingo at Loony Bingo. Instant games can accessed easily across the site – from the lobby, in the game room and from their own page. They include classic slots, progressive jackpot slots, casino games and instant-win games.
Within game rooms you can make lots of changes to how the system works for you, but it’s not easy to see how. Once you have found the little cog that represents options you can:
- Set preferences for room appearance
- Show 3TG
- Turn autodaub on and off
- Opt to shuffle your cards to put your best performer at the top of the screen
- Choose the shape and colour of your dauber
Access to the free games is limited. Once you sign up you get two days access to the Newbie Freebie game; making a deposit opens up three days’ access to another free room; and you can enter a third free room for three days whenever you make a deposit. The other games are opened up as you progress through the loyalty scheme. All have real cash prizes.
There are progressive jackpots for 90-ball, 75-ball and five-line set-ups. There is also a really impressive schedule of pre-buy games to choose from in the main lobby, one of these is the Self Made Millionaire. This game plays on the third Saturday of every month at 10pm. There’s a potential £1 million prize – £1,000 is guaranteed – and tickets cost £1 each.
It looks like you’re spoiled for choice for promos at Loony Bingo. There is a good selection of big prize games listed, but that’s all. There are no promotions that take the player outside the game room or ask them to get involved with the site. And nice though it is, a mobile app isn’t a promotion so why is it listed as such?
