William Hill Bingo Review Continued...
Renowned as a giant of the betting industry, there is a lot more to William Hill than sports. As you would expect from a company with such a long and distinguished history, William Hill Bingo is also a booming business and has produced a site with loads of games and chances to win big prizes.
There are so many different games available at William Hill Bingo that members may find it hard to decide what to plump for. As well as classic 90-ball bingo, there is 80-ball, 75-ball and 90-ball pattern bingo, along with Joker Jackpot and multiplayer games for those who enjoy a bit of variety.
Each game is accompanied by a clear synopsis so that you know exactly what you’re getting into before you buy cards or make a wager. From slots, arcade and casino games to scratchcards, there are hours of fun to be had across the various sections of William Hill Bingo. You can indulge in popular titles like The Pig Wizard, Little Britain, Bounty and the Beanstalk and Irish Eyes 2. Virtual dog and horse racing is another fun diversion from the full bingo offering.
William Hill’s design team have tried to inject a feeling of fun into proceedings, but the layout of the site may not be to everyone’s satisfaction. The main sky blue background is pleasant enough but the surrounding graphics make the site look quite chaotic, and the bingo rooms are a little dull and pale.
These are minor quibbles though, because William Hill Bingo does go to great lengths to help newcomers and explain the rules, and the Virtue Fusion software makes playing most of the games a straightforward experience.
The mobile site and app are much better designed, looking so much smarter and navigating like a dream.
The chat moderators pull out all the stops to make sure the bingo rooms have a vibrant atmosphere, and there are firm guidelines about the expected etiquette. There is also a ‘Bingo Lingo’ guide that puts other sites to shame with the dozens of acronyms it translates, and a new social networking feature which lets players get to know each other better in the ‘Our House’ area.
There are loads of other great features too, including a news section and winners’ stories. It is also very easy to navigate away from bingo or slots to check out the latest sports betting or poker rooms.
Contacting customer support took a bit longer than on other sites as you’re first launched into the general queue for all William Hill users, but the operators are pleasant, helpful and quick to respond once you get through to them.
William Hill Bingo Bonuses and Promotions
There is a very tempting £50 bonus for new players, which can be accessed as long as you spend £10 on tickets within seven days of your first visit. The £50 is split between a £40 Bingo Bonus and a £10 bonus that can be spent on all games, so you have a chance to experience everything on offer. The Games Bonus will need to be wagered 20 times before you can withdraw any winnings, while the Bingo Bonus has to be turned over twice before you can redeem any cash.
As soon as £10 has been deposited and staked, you can enter the Arrivals Lounge as part of a tutorial for new players. This stays open for eight days after you register and offers newbies the opportunity to play free games with the hopes of winning a slice of more than £3,200.
There are plenty of other offers to keep players coming back for more, from free daily games which pay out Bingo Bonuses to weekly favourites such as Bingo BOGOF (Buy One, Get One Free) and imaginative monthly specials that can reward players with mega jackpots of more than £100,000. The Bingo Club offers rewards for loyal players who buy bingo tickets on a regular basis, with one point being accrued for every £1 spent on bingo, every £5 spent on scratchcards or every £10 spent on slots.
William Hill offers both quality and quantity in terms of a bingo experience. There is an excellent sense of community and some great games, while there are a stack of enticing offers and the jackpots available can be massive. The desktop version of the site might feel far too cluttered for some players, but the quality of the gameplay should help bingo fans look past that.
