Fortune favours the bold. Back then in the 11th century, the Vikings left their dear homes in the quest of finding new land to raid on and trade. Their disruptive way of life has heavily impacted the early civilisations and in some way has revolutionised Great Brtitain. In Viking Bingo, the same philosophy has been followed and this has resulted in a total disruption of the bingo industry.
For starters, there is no deposit bonuses here as part of the welcome offer at Viking Bingo. Instead, you would have to determine your own luck by spinning a wheel that decides what you will get. For players like you and me, this high risk high reward attitude is tremendously exciting and adrenaline inducing; making Viking Bingo a fun place to play games at.
Welcome bonus package
Viking Bingo is a fairly new bingo site, and being the new kid on the block, they have to do something crazy to attract some attention. Just like how the Vikings revolutionised Great Britain, Viking Bingo is trying to do the same in the Bingo industry. Their ‘disruptive’ way of thinking is just pushing the way of thinking of bingo operators to a whole new level.
Unlike 99 percent of other bingo sites, Viking Bingo does not offer a conventional deposit bonus. What you do get are a massive number of free spins on Fluffy Favourites. Best part of all this is that the maximum bonus conversion is valid up to a staggering £500. This is probably the highest we have seen so far for bonuses offered as other bingo sites usually stop at £100.
Here comes the interesting part. Besides the 50 free spins that you will receive on Fluffy Favourite, you get to spin a wheel that dictates what you will get as part of your welcome bonus here at Viking Bingo. You can either win 5, 10, 15, 20, 50 or 500 bingo tickets, spins on Shamans Dream, spins on Fluffy Favourites and finally spins on Temple of Isis slots. To explain this a little further, the wheel itself is divided into two sections, the first being what you win and the second part being how much of it do you win. To qualify for this welcome bonus, all you need to do is deposit a minimum of £10.
- Welcome Bonus Packages on Spin the Wheel are attractive
- Extremely mobile friendly
- Massive collection of slot games
- Bingo site looks a little untidy with missing images etc.
- Lacks quality promotions
One thing for sure, the new software that Viking Bingo uses on its site has grown on me by quite a bit since I have started playing here. Usually I would be a bit sceptical about sites running on new software’s because more often than not, you will encounter bugs and unwanted lags in gameplay. It may sound nit-picky, but when the stakes are high in any game, the smallest flaw may cause frustrations and massively impact the gaming experience. Now that I have got that out of the way, at this point, I can confidently report that Viking Bingo is a sold bingo site.
- Debit and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, Solo and Switch)
To make a withdrawal, all you have to do is click on the “Make a Withdrawal” button on your My Account page and proceed to follow the instructions. For all withdrawals, the time taken to process would be 48 hours, during which time you will see your transaction as ‘pending’. Once the pending period is over, it will start processing the day after and from then you can expect to see the money bank in your account in approximately 7 – 14 working days. The only time when you can cancel a withdrawal is during the 48 hour pending period. Do take note that the minimum withdrawal amount is £30.
The Vikings are always prepared. In this bingo site, you get the chance to enjoy the conventional 75-ball and 90-ball bingo. One nice touch by Viking Bingo in the games department is that they have all these games in multiple rooms. From my experience gaming here, I never had to wait longer than 3 minutes to join a game of Bingo.
Another thing that I liked about Viking Bingo is that they have Free Bingo every day of the week. Many other bingo sites these days only offer Free Bingo once or twice in the week to maximise profits. That said, I feel that newbies and casual players in particular will have loads of fun at Viking Bingo. It gives you the freedom of choosing whether or not to spend your money with all the free games available.
Here comes the cherry on the cake. Viking Bingo sports a nice roster of slot games. From just scrolling down the tab, there are about 100 slot titles available and Viking Bingo has done us a favour by only stocking the best and most popular slot titles out there. Some of the famous titles include Starburst, Fluffy Favourites and the Sugar Train slot. I mean, what’s the point if you have thousands of slot titles in your bingo site if all of them were just sub-par and no one was interested in them?
Aside from the super interesting welcome offer package, there are quite a few ongoing promotions at Viking Bingo. First impression wise, I have to say that all of them have quite an appeal with cash prizes and free stuff being thrown at your direction. Here are the few promotions that I thought was worthy of your money and time.
Free Bingo–Everyday between 12pm to 2pm, everybody at Viking Bingo will get to play Free Bingo in the free room. Best part is, you wouldn’t have to wager a single cent to win real money!
£500 Fortune Fountain–Every three months, a huge £500 Jackpot Game is played at Viking Bingo. In this promotion you get to pre-buy the tickets at discounts!
All or Nothing, Win All £50–This one is for the thrill seekers. Every Saturday at 8pm you get the chance to win £5o with just one win!
£250 Balance Transfer–Give you wallet a boost with the £250 jackpot game that is held on the 15th at 8pm every month
Guaranteed £10 Jackpots–Every day between 6pm and 8pm in the Snug room
Viking Bingo takes a lot pride on the fact that they are extremely mobile friendly. Right on their home page, they go on to explain that all the mobile slots and bingo games on their site are available on the go. That said, I conducted a quick test to see if Viking Bingo lived up to their promises and oh boy, playing their games on a mobile device is an absolute delight. Even on a smaller screen, the user interface of Viking Bingo is easy to use and I am surprised that I did not encounter a single lag or bug on our aging Android phone. Props to Viking Bingo for making it super convenient for players to play on their site.

Viking Bingo does not have a loyalty program at the time of writing. I suppose their regular promotions calendar suffices for most players, given that there's something extra every single day of the week.
Community and Social Media
Viking Bingo has no social media presence at the time of writing. However, in true Viking spirit, these guys really know how to gather and banter!
I absolutely love it when there are new bingo site that pop up and offer something that other bingo sites do not, or even do things differently from others. That to us develops the character and the personality of a bingo site and what it has to offer. I say this because I have seen hundreds of new bingo sites being set up recently and almost all of them are identical. Thankfully Viking Bingo has followed the way of the true Vikings, to venture into the unknown with all they have got and see where it brings them. If Viking Bingo continues on in this trajectory, I am confident that they will be a successful bingo site in no time.
