In my neck of the woods, “bonnie” means “attractive”, as in “bonny lass”. Elsewhere, it’s better known as a female first name, such as the raspy Welsh songstress Bonnie Tyler or one half of a 1930s outlaw duo. I’m not sure which one the owners had in mind when they launched Bonnie Bingo, but the site has a colourful, comic-style theme reminiscent of Wink Bingo.
The Bonnie Bingo welcome bonus is general and multi-faceted. It gives you credits, tickets, and spins, ensuring you can explore all aspects of the site and see what it has to offer.
To qualify, you must deposit at least £10. You will receive:
- A £30 bingo bonus
- 50 free spins
The free spins are for a game of the casino’s choice and they have a very low winnings cap of £5. There is also a 40x wagering requirement to clear before that winnings cap is applied.
As for the £10 bonus, it can be used to play any of the bingo games available at Bonnie Bingo. The bonus has a wagering requirement of 4x.
Bonnie Bingo also has a number of loyalty promotions. They are not as diverse or as generous as you can find on Foxy Bingo, Ladbrokes Bingo, and other major sites, but there are enough to keep you busy. These loyalty promotions are available for the site’s bingo games and slot machines.
Bingo Games and Slots
The slot games at Bonnie Bingo are modest, but there are plenty of them to keep you busy and they complement the bingo games. Speaking of the bingo games, this is where Bonnie Bingo excels.
There are huge jackpots to win, games that you can play from as little as £0.01, and lots of fun lobbies to join.
The 90’s Extreme Lobby gives you a taste of 90’s tat—a dose of nostalgia for people who remember the decade but have forgotten how tasteless it was. The big £10,000 gives you a chance to win 5 figures, and then you have Freemium, which is completely free to play but still has big jackpots.
These games weren’t very active when I first checked them, but it was early afternoon during the middle of the week, so that is to be expected. They are much busier during peak times and so you can win far greater prizes.
I tried contacting Bonnie Bingo before conducting this review. I never received a reply. Bear in mind that I am writing this four weeks after sending that email, so I gave them plenty of time.
They are not the only ones who haven’t responded to my emails. Jumpman Gaming sites ignore me all of the time. However, I have gotten instant responses from the likes of Tote and Buzz Bingo, and that’s the standard that Bonnie Bingo should adhere to.
The good thing is that they have a live chat and an active phone number, and these offer fast and helpful responses. You may also get a response by email if you actually sign up first. Many casinos ignore non-members, and I always send my initial emails before joining.
If you have an issue with the site, Bonnie Bingo has a dedicated complaints procedure. You should contact them by email in the first instance (make it clear that you are a member and use your registered email address). If that doesn’t resolve the issue, go through eCOGRA.
Deposits and Withdrawals
Bonnie Bingo has a minimum deposit and withdrawal amount of just £5 and you can transact using debit cards, PayPal, wire transfer, and Apple Pay. If you prefer old-school methods, you can give them a call and do it over the phone. Just bear in mind that you will need to give your debit card number over the phone and they will then enter it into the payment window.
If you’re doing it for security reasons, there’s really no benefit. If anything, it’s less secure. Withdrawals are not instant. They are not the slowest I have seen, but they’re not fast, either. You may need to wait a couple of days to get your funds, even if you use typically instant methods like PayPal.
The name “Broadway Gaming UK Ltd” will appear on your statement if you are using a debit card or wire transfer.
Verdict: Bonnie Bingo Review
I really like what Grand Battery are doing with their bingo sites and Bonnie Bingo is a great example. These sites have loads of great bingo games, numerous jackpots, a good choice of banking options, and bonuses that cover all bases.
What’s not to like?
My only complaints are that withdrawals are not instant and I didn’t get a response to my initial emails. These are not massive issues though, especially as phone support and live chat are available.
Yes, Bonnie Bingo has a license from the UK Gambling Commission (account number 58267). The license was provided to the site’s operator, Grand Battery Holdings Limited.
Bonnie Bingo is powered by Dragonfish. This software powers other Grand Battery sites and is one of the most widespread in the industry.
As with many online gambling sites, there are several companies involved with the regulation and operation of Bonnie Bingo.
The “brand owner” is listed as Tau Marketing Services, which is based in London. The “gaming services” are controlled by Grand Battery Holdings Limited. The Broadway Gaming Group is also involved, seemingly as the parent company of Grand Battery Holdings.
The wagering requirement varies from bonus to bonus, with the main difference being whether the bonus offers gaming credits or bingo credits. The former is usually 40x while the latter is typically no more than 4x.
