Silk Bingo Review
When you first enter the silk bingo website you are greeted with a very bright red and bold looking bingo site. It is a bingo website where the design has carefully considered to make sure it easy use. This is demonstrated with the home page not being overloaded with information or flashy graphics. You have a large banner in the centre of the page advertising the latest bingo welcome bonus. So we could provide a full analysis we took our time to fully read the terms and conditions of this bingo bonus. We did not spot any terms that we felt were too harsh or where to onerous. Silk bingo is registered in Gibraltar which means they are fully licensed which makes it a safe place to play bingo.
As part of this silk bingo review we thoroughly inspected every page featured. There is a relatively small menu bar at the top of the screen which is nice and clear. In fact, this bingo website is almost sparse with information. You have a home page, promotions page, games page which takes you straight to the bingo lobby and member section which is just another area to login in to your silk bingo account. We were left a little disappointed at the number of promotions available. Whilst there is nothing wrong with the bingo promotions on offer, there is a relatively small amount compared with other online bingo sites.
The registration process
As part of our assessment of this silk bingo review we created a new bingo account. Creating a new player account is a very straightforward process. Once you’ve hit the ‘join now’ button you are forwarded to a registration page. Once here you need to enter your name, address and telephone number as well as creating a username, password and entering your email address. It is just one page of information and we found the process only took a minute or two.
Once you’ve created your new bingo account you are automatically logged in. The layout of this page is slightly unusual compared with other online bingo sites. In as much as there is no pressure for you to make your first deposit. The webpage has a clean look and feel to it but is a little lacking on information or details. If you decide to make your first deposit into your bingo account then you have a number of payment methods available to you. You can make a deposit by using all the major debit and credit cards along with PayPal and Neteller. In our judgement adding a payment to your account is very easy and there is also a big choice or how you wish to do this.
The lobby and bingo rooms
Whether you have made a deposit or not you can now head over to the bingo lobby area. It is worth pointing out that while carrying out this silk bingo review we discovered there is free bingo available. But there is a word of warning here. The free bingo is only available to players who have made a payment into their account. On the positive side, you can win up to £100 in the daily freebie without have to pay for a ticket. The bingo lobby area itself looks and feels a little basic. It almost feels as if the bingo website is half built. There are no graphics or colour to the background which gives it an unfinished look.
The bingo rooms themselves are organised by those starting soonest. You can easily see the cost of the tickets and the prize fund available. You can also sort the bingo rooms by using the menu tabs on the screen. There is a choice of 90 ball bingo and 75 ball bingo games available. There are also a number of big jackpots and slot games available – of which there are 120 in total. So we could provide a rounded analysis for this silk bingo review we tried and tested various different bingo rooms out. We felt the bingo rooms still looked a little unfinished. There is no colour or graphics to the background and really does look like this bingo site has been hurried to get up and running. Having said that, there was nothing wrong with how the bingo played. We also found the chat hosts friendly and helpful.
Our overall assessment and analysis for this silk bingo review. On the whole there are a lot of plus points. This is a fully licensed and regulated bingo site, there is a good selection of bingo and slot games and the web pages have been designed and laid out in a way which makes navigation easy. The criticism we have of silk bingo comes down to the fact that it looks unfinished. Some of the pages lack colour and design and it feels that this bingo site has been hurried to get it finished and live.
