Bingo Date is a member of the Best Bingo Network (BBN), powered by Cozy Games software. When it comes to home page design, this is about as simple as they come. It is a plain sky blue background, with nothing in particular to tell you what the theme is at all. Reading the home page blurb leaves you little the wiser, but the “About Us” page makes claim to it being some kind of singles site for “bingo fanatics looking for romance”. If that’s the case, I don’t think Match.com or e-harmony have much to worry about. Other than the usual chat rooms, no further incentives or infrastructure is provided.
The range of bingo on offer is good though, with over a dozen bingo rooms to choose from, including 90, 80, 75, 50 and 30 ball “speed” bingo. There is a range of slot options too, but not much in the way of casino or scratch card choices. There is a selection of special promotions, but nothing particularly singles related, unless you’re prepared to be generous and allow “Bingo Lovers Paradise” to count. It all works well enough, with nine different bingo rooms in operation at the time of our visit.
In conclusion, your intrepid reviewer was a little underwhelmed by this visit to Bingo Date. The actual bingo was fine, which is fine as far as it goes. But no real effort has been made to make this site stand out from all the other titles on offer. The home page couldn’t possibly be any plainer, and the half-hearted effort to promote the “dating” theme is not taken further than a few lines on the biography page. The only date it may be worth visiting this site is the 31st November.
There is a good range of around 50 slot titles to choose from on this site, including some popular picks, such as Fluffy Favourites and Sugar Train. There are also a few casino style choices.
This site is powered by Cozy Games software.
Bingo Date runs a VIP Club. Details of eligibility are a little sketchy. “Lee” is in charge of access to the VIP Lounge apparently; there are four stages and the top tier is “Diamond”. Apart from that, how you get to any of these stages is presumably down to Lee. The promised benefits sound good though, with increasing levels of regular cash backs, free entry into the free VIP Jackpot Game and a few other special treats.
This site accepts all the usual credit and debit cards, including Visa and MasterCard credit cards and Delta and Maestro debit cards. You also have a couple of e-payment options too. The minimum deposit amount is £10.
The wagering requirements for this site mean that you will need to spend 4 x your deposit + bonus in real cash before making your first withdrawal. This means that if you were to make a deposit of £10 and receive a bonus of £40, you would need to wager £200 (4 x £50) of your own funds before cashing out. These terms apply to introductory bonuses on bingo only. The requirement for play on slots is 10 x. Further in-play bonuses entail higher requirements of 8 x (bingo) / 20 x (slots). The minimum withdrawal amount is £30. It will normally take around seven days for your funds to reach your own bank account.
Bingo Date is registered on the Isle of Man. This means that it is licenced and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. It is therefore regarded as safe to play for players based within the United Kingdom.
