Lacking a little crazy in your life? Batty about bingo? Loony Bingo is the site for you. Promising to be the wackiest online bingo platform available, Loony offers bingo, slots and even casino games, in an effort to keep you as buoyed up as the bingo balls that adorn the site.

Relatively new – it was only launched at the end of 2015 – Loony Bingo has already made quite an impression within the bingo world. But does it live up to all its claims? Let’s delve deeper to find out.

Welcome bonus package

We love getting something for nothing, and at Loony Bingo you can do exactly that. Get £30 of Free Bingo tickets simply by signing up with a valid card – and a further 200% bonus on your first deposit (which can be as low as £10!)

No deposit bonuses are worth every penny you’re not spending: they let you check out the site with minimum commitment, so you can see whether you can handle the crazy before playing for keeps.

Pros

  • Deposit as low as £10
  • Good selection of bingo alternatives
  • You can ‘reverse’ a withdrawal if you change your mind
  • Chat, even on mobile

Cons

  • We’d love to see some live games
  • Slow withdrawal process

Bottom Line

With its vibrant, emoticon-style bingo balls and up-front attitude, Loony Bingo is as down to earth as bingo sites get. The site is refreshingly simple, which only serves to enhance its impressive array of games and promotions. Bottom line? It works for BingoPort, and we think it’ll work for you.


In depth

Banking

Loony Bingo is helpfully informative about its banking methods, even offering advice about which cards are preferred, and which methods will be allow funds to be secured in your account the quickest. You can check out all the details on the site, but the long and short of it is that you can pay by:

  • Phone (it’s free!)

From the UK: 0808 238 9836
From outside the UK: +12684844818

  • Credit card: Visa and Mastercard (Visa is preferred)
  • Debit card: Visa and Maestro
  • Paysafecard
  • Paypal
  • Entropay
  • Wire Transfer (available in all currencies)

In terms of withdrawal, you’re eligible to request funds back as soon as you’ve deposited at least £30 – and they’ll usually be credited to you through the same method as your deposit was paid. If this isn’t possible (for example, if you deposited via Entropay) then you will receive a wire transfer instead.

The one thing we’re not so keen on is the relatively long time it takes for funds to be processed back to you: even withdrawals to Paypal – usually the quickest option – can take up to 5 days to be completed. But even this has its upsides: if you change your mind, Loony offer a 2-day window in which you can ‘reverse’ the withdrawal, so that your funds stay where they are, ready to be used on your next game on site. How great is that?

 

Games   

Bingo Games

Click on the ‘Bingo’ tab, and you’ll be met with an impressive variety of games, categorised by their earning potential. There are options tailored to every potential player: it’s great to see some free and penny bingo in amongst the mix, as well as the more regular 75 and 90 ball bingo, and games with higher winnings, such as payday bingo and progressive and guaranteed jackpots. And if you’re looking to try something new, then what better than Swedish Bingo, the traditional game with a bit of a twist?

Slot Games

With over 200 of the most popular online slot games available, Loony Bingo really does offer their members the ultimate all-round gaming experience. It’s simple: spin to win, and you could get your hands on some really wild prizes. There’s lots to play for – and not just cash at stake – with free spins, bonuses and progressive slots, such as Millionaire Genie, where a single spin can see you win big money.

Play all your favourites – there are the classics, like Shaman’s Dream, or you can opt to relive your childhood in a series of storytime delights. Step in Dorothy’s Red Slippers in a Wizard of Oz themed special, or follow Jack in his adventure up the Beanstalk.

Casino Games

If things on site aren’t crazy enough for you already, you can always check out the casino favourites. Poker, Baccarat; Roulette and Keno: Loony Bingo has them all. Spice up your session with a taste of the wild side, and live life on the edge, in these games full of thrill and daring.

Overall, Loony’s game selection is good, although a Live Game section would be a great addition to the site.

 

Promotions

With a number of rolling offers, Loony presents its promotions clearly within the dedicated tab. It’s worth checking them all out, but first we’ll give you an insight into a couple of our favourites.

It’s no fun being bonkers alone; take advantage of Loony Bingo’s Refer a Friend scheme, and bag yourself an extra £10 in bonus cash as soon as they sign up and play! Many sites have similar promotions, but what makes this one stand out is that your friend is only required to deposit £10 before you’re credited with the funds.

How about cash back from day one

We also applaud the cashback incentive, where all any member who has played that month can claim money back on their deposits. It doesn’t matter if you win or lose the game: Loony Bingo will always give you something to remember them by – and it’s dead easy, too! Simply click the ‘Claim Now’ button in the cashback message, and you’re good to go!

What we would love to see advertised more is one-off promotions – but to be fair to Loony, chat games offer these opportunities, and there are more available on their social media sites.

 

Performance

There’s no need to miss a beat with Loony Bingo on mobile. The same welcome bonus is available, so you can even sign up on-the-go and settle down to play on your desktop later. It states on site that you can play over 30 of the top slots… well, perhaps the information is a little out of date, because it seems to us that there are no limits to the mobile version; play as much as you want, as often as you want (even in the chat games) and you’ll still be coming back for more!

Loony also claims there is an app, available for free in the iTunes store… we can’t find it just at the moment, so we’ll get back to you on that one!

 

Support

Contact Loony’s customer service team, available 24/7, to take care of any of your playing needs. They’re crazy-helpful, and even welcome you, through live chat, on your first visit to site – just to remind you about the welcome bonus!

Speed up the response time by contacting the appropriate team first time around – check out the site for all the information you’ll need.

Extra features

VIP Scheme

There’s a whole other level of crazy with VIP status at Loony Bingo. You’ll automatically be enrolled into the scheme when your deposits reach £500 – and don’t worry if this sounds like a lot: even minimum deposits of £10 quickly add up, and you’ll be on your way to VIP stardom in no time. There’s all the more to play for with exclusive prizes and giveaways, and even bigger bonuses – including those highly sought after cashback bonuses. Bounce up the VIP rungs, and you’re guaranteed more every time you level up.

Community

Social butterfly? Get in on all the latest Loony Bingo action by giving their Facebook a like, or Twitter a follow. The media team keeps you up to date with all the latest offers on site, and present a wonderful array of exclusive games, promotions and prizes.

It’s a great time to get involved; with fewer followers than many of the bigger bingo sites, you’re likely to start recognising players and make good friends quickly – and be right in the action as the player community builds up. Newbies, in particular, will find this a gentle, but thrilling, introduction into the world of bingo.

 

Final comments

It’s not just the selection of alternative bingo games that we’re impressed to see from this slightly smaller site; it’s also its branding. Bright and cheerful, the site makes players smile the minute their browser loads – try it, and you’ll see!

And those smiles are sure to stick around: massive winnings up for grabs, and there’s no telling what a few minutes on Loony Bingo might do for you. With a few expansions – live games, for instance – we can see this site being one of the big shots of the future. With that in mind, we at BingoPort recommend that you take the plunge, join now, and get aboard a whirlwind journey into the heart of a very, very wacky world.
