Online bingo sites were created for those humdrum Tuesday nights, when the weather’s too cold, the TV's too dull and your sad self is in need of cheering. What better way to lift those spirits than a cosy online Bingo room? Glossy Bingo is just like hanging out in your best friend’s living room with a cup of tea (or wine). There’s good chatter, plenty of silly games to keep everyone entertained and cash to be won too! When you get tired of other people’s company, help yourself to the slots and those tables games too. Glossy Bingo is better than the book club, that’s for sure!

Glossy Bingo is powered by Microgaming, one of the heavy-weights in the world of real money gaming. The Microgaming gaming studio has years and years of online gaming history — you could say that they were one of the earliest companies around when online gambling websites were less popular than brick-and-mortar casinos. Today, any bingo site or casino with the Microgaming logo would’ve passed its intensely high standards of reliability, fairness and most importantly, fun. Here’s another headline that any player would appreciate: Microgaming’s Bingo software generated the largest single win in online Bingo history — a whopping £5.88 million!
There’s a jackpot game every hour, on the hour. In fact, there are new games starting every 15 minutes between 8-9pm daily, in the Broadway room. It’s a progressive jackpot game, which means that the prize pool continues to grow until a winner is crowned!
Smaller jackpots go up on Monday to Wednesdays, 9pm, also in the Broadway room. Tickets are only 20p each. The biggest prizes for a weeknight has to be Jackpot Got 2 Go game on Thursday nights. As they say, £1,000 has got to go! The weekends are a different ball game altogether. Over £13,000 can be won on Saturday and Sunday evenings.
The peak hour at Glossy Bingo is in the evenings, after 8pm. Some sites are “lunch time” sites, while others only get crowded on the weekends. However, if you’ve got plans a certain night, you don’t have to miss out on the action. Just pre-buy a ticket in the Games lobby, and they’ll let you know whether you’ve won a big prize the next time you log back in.
The slots selection is really great as well. You’ve got a huge array of popular titles. Perhaps check out Game of Thrones slot, if you’re a fan of that TV series. (Spoiler: There’s a special bonus feature for every house!)
Promotions here at Glossy Bingo take the shape of special bingo games. The £600 Loyalty Plus game takes place on the Friday of the last full weekend of the month, and the coolest bit about it is you can earn free tickets for it throughout the month! Each £50 deposited in the qualifying period earns you one free ticket. Finish wagering it and you’ll win yet another ticket. You can also purchase tickets on the night for more chances to win for only 40p each.
At the end of the month, there’s two hours of absolute madness to win £10,000. There’s also the ‘Grab-a-Grand Qualifier’ game, played on the 1st Saturday after £1,000 games. Every £10 wagered gets you 1 ticket. If you played in all 10 x £1,000 games the previous week, you will also get 2 free tickets.
There’s also Slot Bonus Wednesday and Free Spins Thursday to get you interested in a few spins of the slot machines. But these aren’t too much to shout about. Glossy Bingo is a bingo site through and through.
As I said above, Glossy Bingo has a powerful Microgaming engine under its hood. Packaging wise though, the site looks very prim and proper. It depends which way you look at it. It could be boring and totally lacking personality, or it could be neat and credible. I suppose we’d choose a reliable site any day of the week.
Like the Kardashians and their penchant for names that begin with K, Glossy Bingo has their very own ‘G-team’. Glenda, Gabby, Gillian and Greg are always on hand via Live Chat to guide players around the site. These guys are supremely helpful and helped me out figure out which deposit method worked best for me.
(Random tangent: Did you know that Kim Kardashian’s cousins also have names that start with K — Kara, Krista and Kourtni. Lest you forget, let me remind you of all the K names they’ve staked their claim on. There’s the sisters Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie; plus their mom Kris. I thought they would’ve run out of names by now…)
Online chat: Available on the site, 24/7
The member rankings at Glossy Bingo have pretty unique names. You would either be a Rising Star, TV Star, Film Star or Super Star. Depending on your level, you’d get different amounts of free spins on your birthday and get access to different VIP slot tournaments. But, that’s about it. So really, no motivation for you to climb up the social ladder here at Glossy Bingo, but also no point for really professional high-rollers to play here.
Community and Social Media
Glossy Bingo has its own Facebook page, which is updated daily. The team is always updating the page so you’ll always have plenty to read. But more importantly, their social media team runs lots of competitions so you could win lots of goodies!
Glossy Bingo has been around these parts for quite a while now and we can easily see how it gained its loyal following of players. A wide selection of bingo rooms and a generous jackpot collection makes Glossy Bingo the site of choice for mobile and tablet gamblers. The navigation around the site is about the best we’ve seen on the Internet, so you’ll always end up exactly where you want. It’s not perfect; we definitely wish they gave away bingo bonuses more often. But, if it’s where the bingo crowds are, it’s where I want to be.
