Bingo Extra is a new addition to the small family of sites designed by Daub. Using their owm proprietary software it is indeed very similar in design to its sister sites Lucky Pants and Kitty Bingo. The theme is unashamedly nostalgic and very much 50s in style, taking you back to the “good old days… when you got a little extra sprinkles on your milkshake”. The site design is certainly pretty retro too, being a simple affair, offering a no frills basic layout on a creamy custard yellow background. This should not necessarily be taken as a criticism. If you’re looking for a modern site with all the contemporary flash and glitz, then you will be underwhelmed, but for those of us that can do without all those modern distractions and just want to get on with the bingo, this is just fine.
The bingo on offer is the standard 90, 75 and 5 line bingo, and it all runs perfectly smoothly, with good prizes and jackpots on offer. The promotions are good too, and as this is an independent design, they are a bit different from the usual identikit mass networked offerings. There really is a very good range of alternative games to choose from as well, so behind the deceptively plain looking design there is more than enough variety to keep you entertained.
Overall, this review of Bingo Extra finds a well-designed and functional site, most definitely aimed at the rock ’n’ roll generation, but with plenty of modern attractions to go with the juke box and the milkshake in the corner. For those that like their bingo plain and simple and are happy to just “get on with the game”, this is definitely recommended.
There is a wide range of alternative games available on this site, with around 100 slots and loads of scratch card and casino style options as well.
Bingo Extra is powered by Daub’s proprietary software.
Bingo Extra does indeed run a VIP scheme, but in keeping with their 50s nostalgia theme, it’s all pretty top secret (they clearly think the Cold War is still on). Each VIP level has “criteria which must be reached”, and the resulting benefits are “unique”. Membership is by invitation only. Probably via a man in a mac and a trilby tapping you on the shoulder.
There is a good range of deposit options on this site. All the usual credit and debit cards are available, including Visa and MasterCard credit cards and Delta and Maestro debit cards. There is also a good choice of e-payment methods, including PayPal. The minimum deposit amount is £10.
The wagering requirements on this site are that you must wager 4 x your deposit + any resulting bonus before making a withdrawal. This means that, for example, if you deposit £10 and receive a bonus of £30, you must spend £160 (4 x £40) of your own money before cashing out. The minimum withdrawal amount is £10. You can expect it to take around seven days for your withdrawn funds to reach your account.
Bingo Extra is licenced and registered via the UK Channel Island of Alderney. This means that it is fully regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. It is therefore regarded as safe to play for players based within the United Kingdom.
