Foxy Bingo Review Continued...
Foxy Bingo has been setting trends and attracting players in droves since its launch in 2005. In 2009, the site, along with all other Cashcade brands, was purchased by bwin.party. A redesign of the site in November 2015 removed the old purple, pink and orange colour scheme and installed a light, streamlined design on the homepage and in the lobby.
While Katie Price hasn’t been the face of Foxy for quite some time, the site more than makes up for it with Mr. Foxy himself - a talking suited-and-booted fox who loves to play bingo. No one really knows who’s dancing about underneath that fuzzy get-up, but who cares? It’s the bingo you’re here for, not a car-less version of the Stig.
Foxy Bingo offers 90-ball and 75-ball bingo in addition to chat games, guaranteed jackpot games and a nice selection of 1TG and 2TG offerings. Once you’ve made your deposits and opened up the lobby, you’ll also have a chance to pre-buy bingo cards for the bigger jackpot games held on a daily basis.
Free games in all bingo variants are played from Monday to Friday and can offer prizes of up to £100. They’re only on at specific times - from 12pm to 2pm in the Love Me Tender room and 8pm to 10pm in Foxy’s Den - but they can be a great way to get started. If you hit the big time and become a VIP, you’ll unlock a weekly £500 jackpot game solely for the high rollers.
Players can also enjoy a varied selection of slots, progressive jackpot games, table games and scratchcards. You can preview some of the slots before staking your money on them, which is always nice. Solid offerings from NetEnt, IGT and WMS abound.
Everything runs smoothly on Foxy Bingo, which now boasts a sleek, pared-down look that feels rather classy. The lobby opens up quickly and doesn’t stop and start, which is essential if you’re 4TG or less and need to know if your numbers come up!
The mobile site is everything you’d expect from the Dragonfish software - neat, clean and fast with a good selection of games for those on the go or those who can’t be bothered to get up and fetch the laptop. Everything on Foxy Bingo, whether mobile or desktop, is fun, bright and lively - there’s a cheerful feeling about the site that makes you smile even when you’re sat behind a computer screen.
Foxy Bingo knows how to do community right. Known as the “Foxy Family”, this section of the site encourages players to do more than just buy cards. There’s a magazine for members that is actually quite good, as well as a radio station and even a TV show.
Foxy fans can earn Bingo Points when they buy bingo cards for their favourite games or win big in certain chat room games or special promotions. If you’re paying up, you’ll get one Bingo Point for every 10p you spend on cards.
There’s a page on the site about an elite club for certain members, but not much is made of it elsewhere on the site. It’s invite-only and looks rather swish, with real cash prizes, huge bonuses, invitations to exclusive events and more.
Foxy Bingo Bonuses and Promotions
Foxy Bingo players can take advantage of a 300% bingo bonus on their first deposit of between £10 and £30, netting them up to £90 to spend on games. There are also 100% bingo bonuses available on your second and third deposits, up to the value of £100 each time. New players also get access to their very own free room once they’ve made a deposit. The games run every 20 minutes from 10am to 10pm and offer jackpots of £250.
If you want to cash out after winning big on your first few deposits, you’ll need to wager the money (both the deposit and the appropriate bonus funds) four times. If you’ve picked up bonuses on slots, scratchcards or other non-bingo games, you’ll need to wager your money 40 times. It seems a little steep compared to the requirements for bingo, and might even shock some casino players.
However, Foxy’s always offering some incredible promotions, cut-price bingo tickets, shares in big prize pools and charity drives for worthy causes. It’s a pretty attractive site for those who like adding something extra to their bingo experience.
Putting aside the anthropomorphic, bingo-loving fox, Foxy Bingo is a great place to play bingo online. There are tons of promotions, fun bingo rooms and some of the latest slots from the hottest producers. The recent redesign has put the site on the level of some of the best online casinos in terms of quality. It’s got an incredible community and a welcoming feeling - all in all, Foxy Bingo is a solid all-rounder that would suit almost any type of bingo player.
