How would you like to celebrate Christmas all year round? You could open presents every single day, pull crackers to reveal FH jackpot prizes instead of paper crowns or even ride Santa’s sleigh. If this sounds like a fun proposition, Season Bingo is the place for you! This Santa claims to have prizes for everyone, regardless of whether you’re naughty and nice. In fact, this Santa is so loaded with cash that he gives away thousands each week in the site’s Bingo rooms alone. There are jackpot games with £50-100 prizes every single hour of the day. Even if you’re a Christmas grinch who can’t stand Santa in December, let alone any other time of the year, this is a party you wouldn’t want to miss.
Welcome bonus package
We recommend you visit the Season Bingo website to view details of their current welcome offer.
- Daily presents from Santa
- Free bingo games for everyone
- Many promotional jackpot rooms
- Winnings on bonuses cannot be withdrawn unless wagered 4x
- Few banking options provided
If you thought that a site with Santa Claus as its mascot would only be popular around Christmas time, you’d be quite wrong. Season Bingo is a cheery place to be all year round. I guess it’s not difficult to make someone’s day. All a site has to do is give its players surprise bonuses and lots of festive jackpots, which Season Bingo does very well.
- Debit and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Maestro)
As with all other bingo sites, withdrawals are only processed after 48 hours. Withdrawals are offered using the same banking method you used to deposit, wherever possible. It usually takes 3-5 working days for the money to reach your bank account.
Start at Season Bingo’s two free bingo rooms—Free Ride and Fun and Free. Both rooms are open to all players, funded and non-funded alike. Once you get the hang of it, I recommend depositing and moving on to Season Bingo’s fabulous jackpot games. My favourite is the High Rise jackpot, which you can only win if you get Full House in 38 calls or less. The jackpot grows every day until someone wins it!
Santa also takes players on hourly sleigh rides for only 5p and 10p each; if you’re lucky, you could win the £50-100 jackpots. These games start every hour on the hour from 9am to midnight; that’s 16 games a day and £1,200 given away to Season Bingo’s players each day. Funded players (i.e. players that have deposited in the last 5 days) get access to special rooms with bigger prizes.
These bingo rooms host all of the most popular bingo formats, including 90-ball, 75-ball and 5-line bingo.
Aside from bingo, there are over 100 slot games, scratch cards and casino games to play too. Some slots are even available to play in the bingo rooms, so you can play both bingo and slots at the same time. A few of my favourite titles include: Cleopatra, European Roulette and Shaman’s Dream. In case you didn’t know, there’s a 16,000-coin win tucked into Shaman’s Dream. It’s up for any player to grab, so you better get to it.
This section is where Season Bingo really brings Christmas to life. After all, the site is reenacting the season of giving! For starters, there’s the Weekly £10K Cash Cracker promotion. This special bingo game held in the free bingo room, so you could win the jackpot without spending a penny! The tickets usually run out really fast, so you have to mark your calendar (Sunday @ 9pm) and get there on time.
The second exciting promotion is titled 1p Presents. This is a series of six daily bingo games that only cost 1p each. £50 in cash put up at stake; that’s £2,100 each week! Pick a Present is like an advent calendar, except that in runs all year long. You can log into the lobby each day and find a new package waiting for you, holding anything from cash to loyalty diamonds; free spins to bonus cash. Santa’s elves come and restock your lobby for 7 days after each deposit. Otherwise, non-funded players get to claim one present until the next time they deposit.
On top of those regular activities, Season Bingo also shakes things up with a different promotion each month. The format of the game changes each month and more importantly, the prize pot is replenished too. There is also a Refer a Friend program, where you can earn £10 in bonus cash for every friend that you bring in.
Under the hood, Season Bingo employs the same software has many other reputable bingo sites in the UK. You can be sure that all fair gaming practices are upheld, independent audits are completed and secure transaction software is in place. Season Bingo also works on desktop, mobile phone and tablet platforms, so that you can take the game wherever you go.

Online Chat: None available, but you can shout out to any of the CMs in the bingo chat rooms for help
Once you make your first deposit, you’ll automatically be admitted into Season Bingo’s loyalty programme—Diamond VIP club. As part of your membership, you’ll earn a diamond for every pound wagered on Season Bingo. You could even earn these loyalty points when playing at any one of their sister sites.
There are five levels of players. New guys who have deposited less than £50 join in the Blue Level while long-time players and high-rollers who have deposited more than £5,000 are part of the Platinum Level.
So, what do you get as part of the VIP Club? First, you can exchange your diamonds for bonus cash. The higher your level, the less diamonds you’ll need to exchange for bonuses. Secondly, you can get exclusive access to Season Bingo’s special VIP Games, which feature bigger prizes and less players per room.
Community and Social Media
Season Bingo has a Facebook page, but it does not gather a strong community of followers. The last the team posted was back in last year’s festive season. I guess it’d be quite weird to get Christmas-themed promo images on your newsfeed in the middle of March. Nevertheless, the community spirit is well and alive in the bingo rooms. There is usually at least one CM online at any time, rallying the crowd and organizing chat games.
The bingo site has taken the theme quite literally and really run away with it. It’s festive without being too over the top. No one can get enough of the daily presents from Santa, sleigh ride jackpots and cash crackers. It’s a good mood-uplifter and a fantastic wallet-booster too.
