Welcome to our Buttercup Bingo Review
The moment you first enter this bingo site you can’t help but like the design and feel. There are rolling green farm hills and buttercup is the happy go-lucky cow which is shown on the home page. Although the layout is pretty much identical to lots of other sites this one still looks fresh and modern. On the page you’ll easily be able to access all the latest promotions and as usual that is a schedule of rooms available along with four featured slot games. Overall the layout and design is very good on first impressions.
As with all our reviews we made sure we took a close look at the terms and conditions. Some of the promotions have individual terms as they change on a frequent basis so be sure to read them carefully. Otherwise, while looking through the terms and conditions we did not spot anything that would make this site unsafe to play at. The area to pay special attention is the withdrawal process as you can only make one withdrawal every five days. Otherwise there are no issues hidden away that you should be aware of.
The registration process
In order to claim the free bonus bucks you’ll need to go through the registration process, which although easy is not the quickest compared to some other sites. The first part of the registration process involves you filling in the usual personal details such as your name, address, date of birth, telephone number, email address and creating a username and password. As buttercup bingo is part of a large network you may not be able to use your usual username and password. However, it does mean you can skip the whole registration process and log straight in. You will also need to enter a debit or credit card. Before you can access the games lobby you’ll receive an email which contains a link which needs to be clicked in order to finish the registration process and claim the free bonus bucks on offer.
The lobby and bingo rooms
Once you find yourself in the games lobby the same rolling green fields are still present. The actual layout be familiar with those players that have used cozy games bingo sites before, this is because the actual rooms and games available is exactly the same as what you’ll find at many other sites. All the rooms are shown as one long list and you simply need to scroll up and down. We liked how easy it is to find a room that suits a player’s budget and you don’t need to keep clicking backwards and forwards. There is the usual good selection of games available that includes 90 ball, 80 ball, 75 ball and 30 ball variants of bingo as well a whole host of rooms. There is also a prebuy facility in the games lobby if you want to take advantage of that.
The final stage of our review saw us test out a number of the rooms to see what it is like to be a fully paid up member. If you’ve played at a cozy software site then you will know exactly what to expect, as the layout and design is identical to many other sites that are out there. Still, although it may not look the best in terms of flash graphics, it is very functional and good fun. The slight downside is that the CMs are keener to point you elsewhere rather than helping you with any questions you may have.
Our final summary and analysis for this buttercup bingo review. This site is trying to be different with its design and the way it looks. There is no doubt that this helps influence things are you are tempted to dive right in. However, when you start to look a little closer you soon realise this is site is exactly the same as many others and doesn’t really offer anything original.
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 £15 bingo bonus you’ll need to wager a total of £120. 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.
