Heart Bingo is an online bingo site and casino with a simple red-and-white aesthetic and a strange—and seemingly irrelevant—link to a radio network. It is operated by BV Gaming and has won awards for its services.
Let’s take a closer look.
There are bingo sites named after newspapers, women’s magazines, and lots of other completely irrelevant brands. I’ve always questioned why these things exist. I get the power of branding and that a reader of The Sun might lend more credence to a site if it carries the name of the newspaper they read. But even that is debatable, as it seems that they always side with the most polarising newspapers, so for every person who sees the brand and joins, there is another who runs a mile.
Needless to say, Heart Bingo is based on the Heart radio network. It’s not as controversial (unless there’s something I have missed), but I’d argue that it’s even more irrelevant. I have known of this site’s existence for several years. I have been a member for two years. This is not even the first time I have reviewed it. And yet, I have only just learned that it was named after a radio network.
Seriously…why bother paying to use a license if it makes no difference?
Anyway, that’s enough ranting. Let’s see what Heart Bingo has to offer.
Heart Bingo is not shy when it comes to welcome bonuses. All new players can collect a £30 bingo bonus and 100 free spins when they first join. Simply deposit £10 and then spend it on selected bingo and slot games within 7 days.
As with many bingo bonuses, you don’t actually get cash. The bonus is released in the form of bingo tickets and it’s assumed you’ll get around £30 based on ticket values of 10 pence each.
New players also have access to a Newbie Room, where they can win cash and real money bingo tickets without risking any of their own money. It’s a good place to start if you’re new to online bingo but it’s also ideal for players on small budgets who enjoy the game.
It’s worth noting, however, that you’ll only have access for 5 days, so use your time well.
The bonuses don’t stop when you’re no longer a new member. In fact, some of the biggest offers are targeted toward active players.
For instance, at the time of writing, we’ve just entered 2023 and Heart Bingo has a 2023 giveaway offering over £2,000 per month for the entire year. To qualify, you just need to opt-in and then stake £5 on a qualifying slot machine. You can enter this giveaway every month of the year, and it’s not even the only giveaway available on Heart Bingo.
The Heart Bonanza Daily Free Game lets you play for big credit/spin/ticket wins in a free game, providing you have made a real money deposit of £10 or more in the last 14 years. And then you have the Bubble Wild Wheel, which is open to all players who wager £10 or more on the Bubble Wild bingo or slot game.
Check out the promotions section to see what’s on offer. These are constantly changing, and while the biggest offers tend to be seasonal, there are year-round promotions as well.
Bingo Rooms and Casino Games
Despite being a bingo site with a wide selection of bingo rooms, Heart Bingo also goes heavy on the slot machines. There are more than 2,500 of them in total, and they include all kinds of jackpot games and big feature offerings. It’s a surprisingly large selection, as the slot rooms attached to bingo sites usually have a modest, token offering of just a few hundred games.
Heart Bingo also keeps things interesting by regularly updating its games room and adding new and exclusive titles to the mix.
The bingo games include Diamond Puzzle, Bubble Wins, and a few games that you won’t find anywhere else, such as Heart Bonanza Bingo, Winner Wonderland, and Heart and Soul.
The average ticket price is £0.10 and you only need 1 ticket to play. However, there are many smaller and higher variations, from games that cost just 1p and 2p to ones that exceed 50p.
Some bingo sites get very boring very quickly. They repeat themselves as they only have a dozen or so games. With Heart Bingo, there is a seemingly never-ending selection of games and they all have something different to offer.
They are also very busy. At the time of writing, all of the upcoming games have at least 100 players and some of them have over 300. Even the smaller games attract at least a dozen players, so there’s always something to play for.
The community on Heart Bingo is very active and friendly as well.
Verdict: Heart Bingo Review
As noted at the outset of this review, I have prior experience with Heart Bingo and all of it is good. I don’t recall having any negative experiences with this site and I am happy to recommend it.
If I had to nitpick, I’d complain about the lack of instant withdrawals, as it can take a couple of days to get your funds. But it’s not the longest wait, so that’s really not much of a complaint. The customer support can be slow at times, but that could have just been isolated incidents, so again, it’s not an issue.
Heart Bingo is operated by BV Gaming, which stands for BetVictor. It’s the same brand behind the excellent BetVictor sportsbook and casino.
