Welcome to our Bingo Flame Review
It is no surprise that with a name like bingo flame that when you first load up the home page you send a background ablaze with fire and flames. The design element is a little strange for a bingo site as it doesn’t really look very ‘bingo’ like. If you’re a fan of something different from the norm then it may well appeal to you. The layout is very simple and many players will recognise that this is a cozy games site because of that layout. It is very basic with not a great deal to see other than the latest new player offer and a schedule of rooms and games. There are however a good selection of promotions available and well worth having a look through.
Our interest with the promotions was mainly focused around the terms and conditions around these as we wanted to be sure this could be considered a safe bingo site. The terms can be a bit tricky to find as they are not all in one place so just be wary of that. However while analysing the terms we did not spot anything nasty hidden or tucked away in the small print. We’d just advise caution around the withdrawal process and ask that you understand this process as some players have had cause from complaints as they were not fully aware of the time scales involved.
The registration process
The registration process is actually straightforward and to join you’ll need to click on the banner in the middle of the screen or click on ‘sign up’ in the top right of the screen. You’ll then be presented with a screen where you’ll need to enter your name, address, date of birth, create a username and password and enter a telephone number. One difference is how you will need to enter debit or credit card details and this is not optional, you have to fill these details in. Once you’ve done this you will be sent an email containing a link and you’ll need to click this link otherwise you will not be able to enter the games lobby or go any further with the registration process.
The lobby and bingo rooms
When you’ve completed all the steps needed to register a new player account you’ll find yourself in the games lobby. The same fire theme blazes away in the background. Along the top of the screen is where you’ll find all the menu tabs to access your account and change any details if you need to. All the bingo rooms are displayed in one long list on the page, and while it doesn’t look spectacular it is very functional and makes it very easy to use. There is a very good selection of games available that include 90 ball, 80 ball, 75 ball and the speedy 30 ball bingo. There is a choice of cheap bingo with plenty of games running where the ticket price is 1p. Also from here you can play slots and other casino style games.
To help fully write this review we also played a number of different games to get a true feeling for what it is like to be a member. If you’ve played cozy bingo sites before then the actual bingo is identical to every other site that uses the software. The graphics are very basic and there is not much to get excited about on that front. That said, the game play is solid and has been well designed so there is plenty of room for your tickets, chat box and slot and other side games. The CMs tried hard while we were there as there were not many roomies about, but they weren’t that helpful when answering our queries about wagering requirements.
Our final summary and analysis for this bingo flame review. This is website that certainly looks a bit different on first viewing. However, once you delve that bit deeper you soon begin to realise this is just one of many cozy games sites. This will suit fans of cozy software; otherwise you may want to move on quite quickly.
What is the minimum deposit required?
The minimum deposit is £5 and the maximum is £500.
How do you make a deposit?
On the left of the screen you’ll see some tabs and you’ll need to click on the one labelled ‘banking’. You’ll then see a list of more options and you’ll need to click on ‘make a deposit’. A new screen will then load up where you enter how you wish to deposit and then select your payment method from a drop down list.
What is the bingo wagering requirement and how will you have to wager?
The wagering requirement is 4X the deposit amount plus the amount of bonus received. Therefore if you deposit £5 and get a £20 bingo bonus you’ll need to wager a total of £80. You do have the option not to accept a deposit bonus and therefore have no wagering requirements to meet.
How long do withdrawals take and what is the minimum you can withdraw?
You may request only one withdrawal during a 5 day period which is quite restrictive and a little unfair. Withdrawals are processed within 48-72 hours of being received and will reach your account in 2-5 working days. The minimum withdrawal amount is £10 and prior to withdrawing you will have needed to have deposited a minimum of £5 and made at least one wager. Proof of ID must also be provided before you can make a withdrawal.
Is it licensed and regulated?
Yes it licensed and regulated in the Isle of Man. This means it can be classed as ’whitelisted’ and therefore considered safe to play.
What software is used?
Cozy Games software and is is on the live bingo network.
Are bank details needed at the registration stage?
You will need to enter a debit or credit during registration. No funds are taken from your account at this stage and you can always change the card details at a later stage.
How long has the site been established?
Bingo Flame was launched in September 2009.
