Published: . Last Updated: . Reviewed By: BingoPort Reviewer
If you’ve got a taste for sun, sea and sand—and let’s face it, who hasn’t—then you’re probably addicted to the biggest dating show of the year: Love Island. The fun-packed social experiment featuring modern day Venuses and Adonises has been an unprecedented hit, and has won over the hearts of the nation.
So, those ingenious folks at Gaming Realms thought it might be a great idea to combine the Island with some of their most popular games. Were they right, or is this site just a step too far? Read on to find out...

- High wagering requirement on free spins
- Not that many promotions
- Hasn’t got the biggest range of depositing options
Love Island Games has the potential to be the perfect getaway. With its massive selection of slots and games and a really well laid-out site, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were in paradise! The only thing this site is lacking is a big range of promotions.
The television adventures of the Islanders might finish next week, but we’re sure that Love Island Games will be a regular fixture on our screens until long after the summer’s ended.
You shouldn’t have any difficulties placing deposits on Love Island Games. All the major credit and debit cards are accepted, as well as mobile phone payments, which is surely a positive for the young audience of this site. However, you can’t use any of the e-wallet services such as Paysafecard or Neteller, which is a bit of a disappointment.
- Credit card (Visa/MasterCard)
- Debit card (Visa/Maestro)
- Phone bill
As is standard for most sites, your withdrawals will be paid back onto the same card that you used to make the deposit.
Most withdrawals are processed within 3-5 working days, and there’s actually no minimum withdrawal amount—you just have to contact customer services if you want to take out anything less than £10. It’s worth knowing though, that these transactions may incur a £1 charge.
There’s a massive variety available at Love Island Games, with slots and games from numerous providers including NetEnt, Eyecon and Microgaming.
This is the kind of great selection we’ve come to expect from Gaming Realms—we’ve seen it on their other TV show-themed sites.
In terms of bingo, you’ve got access to the hugely successful Slingo rooms, featuring that inimitable combination of slots and bingo. There’s a reason that this format has such a legion of fans—many people say it’s quicker and more exhilarating than regular bingo, and helps to scratch that slots itch!
Then, as if that wasn’t enough, you’ve got a myriad of table and casino games to pick from—the makers of this site certainly haven’t put all their eggs in one basket!
We can see that this might be a bit overwhelming, so we’ve picked out a selection of our favourite games below.
Fully in keeping with the holiday atmosphere is Wild Water—a surf-themed slot from NetEnt. This is something a bit different to your standard slot—you won’t find any of the symbols that you’d normally expect here. Instead, the surfers and sharks dominate the full length of the 5 reels. This video slot’s got 20 paylines and the opportunity to grab a 20x multiplier—if this doesn’t make you want to head to the beach, we don’t know what will!
Life of Riches
As well as looking for love, it’s pretty easy to see that most of the real-life islanders are desperate for a life of riches too. This Microgaming slot celebrates the VIP lifestyle, and simply exudes classy sophistication: the graphics really are something to behold. Life of Riches is much more than just a pretty face, however—you’ve got the opportunity to win a massive 8,000 times your stake on any free spin, so your dreams of grandiosity could soon become reality!
Stashed away in the casino section of the site is Buster Blackjack. You might think you know all about Blackjack, which is admittedly one of the simplest table games out there. Yet, there’s something a bit different about this game. Obviously, no matter which variant of blackjack you play, it’s a brilliant feeling when the dealer goes bust, but in Buster Blackjack it’s even better than you might expect. This is because in this game you can also play a side bet, which pays out when the dealer makes a total of 22 or more. This really adds a new element of fun to the traditional game—why not give it a go today?
If we could pick out one criticism of Love Island Games, it would be that promotions are a bit thin on the ground compared to some of the more established sites out there. This isn't that surprising, however, considering that at the time of writing the site had only been online for a month.
All is not lost, though—there is a second deposit bonus of 10 free spins on the new Pigasus slot game, which is always welcome.
If you’re mad about promotions (and let’s be honest, who isn’t?), make sure to check out our blog every week for the best deals.
Love Island Games looks great, and despite the huge variety of games on offer, it’s really easy to navigate. The games all come from well-established developers, and again, despite the mish-mash of software platforms used, everything runs really smoothly.
The site works well across a variety of devices, including the vast majority of modern tablets and mobiles. You don’t even need to download an app!
As you’d expect from a large company such as Gaming Realms, the support offered is top-notch. There’s online live chat available between 9am and 11pm, 7 days of the week. You can also use your phone to access this service, or if your enquiry isn’t urgent, there are also email and postal addresses you can use.

As it’s quite a new site, Love Island Games doesn’t have a massive selection of extra features yet. We can forgive this though, as the huge range of games to choose from makes up for the lack of any gimmicks!
There is, however, a VIP program which rewards anyone who keeps on coming back for more. The way this works is quite simple: anyone who starts play is immediately awarded VIP status. You can then progress to the Platinum VIP level with repeated deposits.
As a Platinum VIP you have the chance to win a stunning range of prizes—in the past they’ve included backstage Adele and Coldplay tickets, spending money and hotel stays. You’ll also have access to VIP-only support, or a dedicated account manager. You can expect full VIP TLC at Love Island Games!
It looks like Gaming Realms have repeated the success they’ve had with Britain’s Got Talent Games and The X Factor Games. This time, however, their efforts have got a decidedly more exotic twist—something we’re really keen on here at BingoPort! If you’re a fan of Love Island, a fan of Slingo, or just a fan of having fun, you’ll be right at home at Love Island Games.
