Brought to you by the supermarket of the same name, Iceland Bingo is the one-stop-shop for bingo and slots enthusiasts.
It ignores the glitz and glamour of other top sites, opting for an understated appearance. As such, it is clear and concise: the uncluttered pages make the site user-friendly, with easy site navigation and clear, helpful guides.
So, let’s find out what makes this site so strong in its field.
Welcome bonus package
Low-stakes players will certainly appreciate Iceland’s low deposit requirements, which translates to their welcome bonus as well: deposit £5 and get £20 to play with. We feel that’s more than generous — a 400% markup!
- Deposit as low as £5
- Variety of unique promotions
- Wide range of banking options
- Limited selection of bingo variations
- Limited Extra Features for members
The site is simple, but effective: its no-fuss attitude appeals to the minimalist within each of us, especially since the quality of the games are unaffected.
We’d love to see a few more bingo variations and special features, but only because those that are offered keep us hooked and wanting to come back for more.
Iceland offers a wide range of banking options, so you can be sure that your favourite deposit method will be accepted.
Make withdrawals via...
Even for withdrawing, Iceland offers a great selection of banking methods. The length of time for the withdrawal process to be completed varies from method to method, but the longest you would ever have to wait (within the UK, at least) would be for a cheque to clear — this can take up to 6 working days.
- Credit card
- Debit card
- Wire Transfer
High 5 Bingo
With options for rows of numbers going across, up, down and diagonally, there are more chances to win (5, in fact) with this fun twist on classic bingo.
The Swedish Jackpot keeps players on their toes, running 24/7 in the High 5 room. It never dips below £150, and becomes the property of any player who can bingo a Full House within 50 calls.
X Factor Video Slot
The road to stardom has never been so lucrative, and 5-row, 25-payline slots have never been so fun. Microphones, tickets and singers grace the screen; soak up the glitz and glamour, and spin to dizzying heights by winning up to 5000 times your bet.
Diamonds are Forever
This 75-ball bingo game features a progressive jackpot that starts at £500 and just keeps going up! The aim of the game is to bingo on the 'Diamonds are Forever' pattern; those who manage this in 34 calls or less become jackpot winners too.
Bruce Lee 2
This game’s bespoke format will keep you on tenterhooks: the first 2 (of 5) reels feature a mere 2 positions; the others have 4. Encounter swords, medals and Bruce himself, as the 30 paylines ensure loads of chances to drop-kick your way to victory.
Pennies Make Pounds
How many times have you heard the saying ‘take care of the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves’?
Well, Iceland’s Pennies make Pounds promotion, held in the new and exclusive room of the same name, embodies that logic. Each and every day, between 12pm and 3pm, you can gain entry and stand to win jackpots of up to £30 with penny tickets — that is one giant markup! And that’s not all: with buy 2 get 1 free tickets available in this room, you can fit a bit more bingo into your lunch hour and get a decent profit for a tiny stake.
So, here’s an easy question for you: where’s the best place to be in the early afternoon? In the ‘Iceland Specials’ section of the Bingo Lobby of course!
Prize Draw Room
What better way to boost your month than by partaking in Iceland’s prize draw?
Held at 9pm on the 15th of each month, there are a huge selection of prizes to be won, including vouchers that can be spent in Iceland food stores!
Tickets cost just 5p each; pre-buy to avoid that last-minute panic.
Make sure you’re following Iceland Bingo on Facebook as well — this is the best way to keep up-to-date with all the details, including what you could win this month.
The 15th of every month gets even better with this promotion, where you’re guaranteed to win a cash prize! With £2500 to be split between all players in the room, why not double up your promotions and see where it gets you?
Can’t wait 4 weeks until the next one? Held on the 1st of each month, Sure Win 2 features a further £2500 fund. Slightly smaller ‘big wins’ for FH, 1 and 2 line remaining winners ensure that everyone else gets a bigger slice of the pie.
In keeping with Iceland’s heritage, this aptly named 90-ball bingo room contains more bingo treats than you could even imagine. Open early evening (6-8pm daily), it is exclusive to funded players — those who have made a real cash deposit — helping to keep numbers low and chances of winning high. With both huge jackpots and Iceland food vouchers on offer, there’s plenty to play for.
The Late Night Show
What better way to while away the small hours than by competing against a few, select others for money? The fun and games kick off at 00.45, and players can purchase a minimum of 96 tickets at a penny each —bargain!
This highly exclusive room limits entrants to 50 players only, which gives you the best possible shot at big winnings, including an incredible £100 jackpot in real cash.
So, if you’re a night owl, then make sure you’re ready to pre-buy tickets at 00.30 sharp!
The performance on site is impressive. As we’ve already mentioned, the site is extremely user-friendly in terms of navigation, and all the games perform well.

Iceland are keen to reward their members, and their generous Loyalty Scheme does just that. With 4 levels to climb, there’s plenty of opportunity for progression, based on the amount you deposit the previous month. Bingo Rookies, Pros, Masters and Champions are all eligible for free games, but those who qualify for the higher levels will also gain cashback on bingo and spin bonuses, free spins, and free tickets into the Sure Win promotion, where you are guaranteed not to come out empty-handed.
Even better, there are 4 bingo rooms members can enter absolutely free; eligibility depends on single deposits made within the previous 7 days.
Unlike some other top sites, Iceland limits its social media presence to Facebook and Twitter. However, this does nothing to jeopardise its quality: followers can expect regular updates with a range of entertaining comments, pop culture discussion and special promotions. As one of the smaller sites around, there’s a close community feeling here.
Low-key and personal, Iceland Bingo caters for chilled (get it?) bingo players wonderfully. All in all? We at BingoPort feel it deserves a strong 4 stars.
