Though not quite one of bingo’s big names, Live Bingo has been delighting its users since 2010. Don’t be fooled by its small size—operated by big hitters 888, this site has a wealth of experience behind it.

The site may not look particularly spectacular on the surface, but players who make the effort to dig a little deeper will be richly rewarded. Read on for the full scoop on this little livewire of a site.

Pros

  • Welcome bonus package
  • VIP scheme
  • Selection of games

Cons

  • Small variety of promotions
  • Small jackpots

Bottom Line

Just because Live Bingo is small doesn’t mean it doesn’t know what it’s doing. This simple yet professional site has plenty to offer, and whilst the site may have a slightly retro feel, its games run on the most up-to-date industry-standard software, ensuring a great gaming experience. Add in the site’s great selection of games—including its range of free bingo games—and there’s plenty here to love!
 

In Depth

Banking

Live Bingo accepts a range of payment methods, making it easy to deposit or withdraw. The minimum deposit amount is £5.

Pay via…

  • Debit card: Visa or Maestro
  • Credit card: Visa or Mastercard
  • Entropay
  • PayPal
  • Paysafecard
  • Neteller

Most of these methods can be used for both depositing and withdrawing funds. If you’ve deposited via Entropay, Paysafecard, or with a non-UK Mastercard, your winnings will be sent to you via wire transfer.

The minimum withdrawal amount stands at £20. The withdrawal process typically takes between 3 and 10 days, which is a little on the sluggish side.

Don't forget to check the wagering requirements, otherwise you won't be able to make any withdrawals!

 

Games

Bingo Games

Live Bingo prefers to keep things simple, and sticks to offering some classic bingo favourites: 75-ball, 90-ball and 5-line bingo. If you’re disappointed with this slightly smaller range of bingo variations, you may be pleased to hear that the site also offers a number of free bingo games. Check out the Quids In, Freebie, On the House and Freemium rooms to play a game or two—completely free! After all, you’ve got nothing to lose!

Performance

When you first look at Live Bingo, you might find it a little strange—why, you ask? Well, because its navigation bar is located on the left and right hand side of the page, instead of the top. It’s a bit unusual, and it did take us a couple of seconds to adjust. However, once you’ve got used to this departure from the norm, you’ll be able to find everything you could possibly want in just a few seconds. The bright purple colour scheme is distinctive, but happily isn’t quite as blindingly brash as some other sites out there. The games are powered by the ever-reliable Dragonfish software, so you can expect fast loading times, no lag, and smooth playing.

Mobile

Live Bingo doesn’t currently offer any mobile apps—but don’t worry, like most sites, it’s optimised for mobiles. So, you can play on your PC, mobile or tablet—you just need to type the web address into your browser! It couldn’t be any simpler! 

 

Support

If you have any problems or queries, you can get into contact with Live Bingo’s support team 24/7. You can get in touch via phone or email. Unfortunately, it doesn’t currently offer a live chat service—we hope this changes sometime in the near future. If you have any smaller queries, you might want to check their FAQs page first.

Extra Features

VIP Scheme

Live Bingo's VIP scheme

Any seasoned bingo player would relish the chance to earn the title of Bingo Champion—we definitely think it has a nice ring to it! Live Bingo’s exclusive VIP scheme gives you the chance to earn that crown and let everyone else know just how great you are at bingo! The more you deposit for bingo, the higher up the scheme you’ll get.

It has four levels:

  • Rookie: £0
  • Pro: £5 to £49
  • Master: £50 to £199
  • Champion: £200 to £499

Benefits include free bingo rooms, bingo bonus cashback, slots bonus cashback, free spins and free tickets to the Big 10K game!

Loyalty Points

Most sites have a loyalty scheme, and Live Bingo is no different. By purchasing bingo cards and playing on chat games or instant games, you’re rewarded with Loyalty Points. Once you reach 1,000 Loyalty Points, they can be redeemed for £1 of bonus cash. Who doesn’t love a good loyalty points system? You basically get rewarded for playing your favourite game!

Invite a Friend

Sharing is caring—and doesn’t Live Bingo know it! If you invite a friend to Live Bingo you can get a £10 Bingo Bonus! So spread the word, share the love, and get free rewards for your hard work! You can refer up to 15 friends per month, giving you the chance to bag £150 of bonus cash! Sign us up!

Community and Social Media

If you love to stay updated with all the latest bingo promotions and news, you might be slightly disappointed with Live Bingo. It currently only has an account on Facebook—which can seem rather lacking, compared to other sites that have a wider variety of social media. Personally, we’re pretty big fans of Twitter, so we feel like that’s definitely an improvement that Live Bingo needs to make at some point.

While its community might not be as large and bustling as other sites, you can rest assured knowing that it is tight-knit and filled with like-minded people. Live Bingo strives to offer members a premium experience with superb entertainment—so you know that if you join, you’ll receive only the best kind of treatment!
 

Final Comments

After trawling through dozens and dozens of bingo sites, Live Bingo might just be the one to restart your heart and make you feel alive again! The site jump-started things with its generous welcome bonus package, complete with the freebies that we absolutely adore! And let’s not forget its VIP scheme that has us dying to be crowned Bingo Champion! Top that off with their free games, and ding ding ding—we might have a winner!

That being said, it does have a couple of improvements it needs to work through before it’s 100% perfect. We’d like to see a wider variety of promotions on offer, alongside a few bigger jackpots—after all, we love to be spoilt! Other than that, Live Bingo is a pretty darn impressive site. So what are you waiting for?
