Wink Bingo Review
When you first enter wink bingo you are greeted with a no thrills looking website. There are no flashy graphics and the home page looks very ordinary. This is not a bad point; as it means that the web page is keep clean and simple. There is a slight sparkle in the background colour of pink but that is about it. The latest bingo promotions and offers advertise in the middle of screen. At the time of writing this wink bingo review they were advertising that you can play bingo on your iphone, iPad and Smartphone. This inspection of wink bingo was carried out on a computer so we cannot comment on how the bingo is on a mobile device.
Navigation is pretty straight forward. There are a number of menu tabs which run along the top of the screen. As there are no flashy graphics so it helps with the navigation and it is easy to jump to different web pages. During our analysis of the help section we were very impressed with a series of ‘help videos’. These videos are helpful guides and show you the registration process and how to make a deposit or withdrawal in case you get stuck. We also took our time to read through the terms and conditions of the promotions and bonuses currently available. The current wagering requirement is 2X the amount of bonus funds for the first time deposit bonus. Upon further inspection of the terms we did not spot anything that would deter us from stopping our review. Wink bingo is regulated and licensed in Gibraltar which means it is a safe online bingo site. Although we have tried to ensure your safety, we still strongly recommend you read the terms and conditions thoroughly yourself before gambling with your own money.
How to create a new player account
As part of our comprehensive wink bingo review we created a new player profile. To register a new bingo account hit the large ‘join now’ button at the top of the screen. Once you’ve clicked this you’ll be taken to the registration screen. Here you’ll need to enter your name, address, telephone number, date of birth, email address and create a username and password. The whole process only took us around a minute to complete and we found it very easy. Once you’ve registered your account you are then redirected to the ‘my account’ section of the website. Wink bingo offers its new bingo players 7 days free bingo without the need to make a deposit. This is a fantastic way to get to know the bingo software and game play. It also means you do not have to gamble with your own money to begin with. If you do make a deposit at this stage, a new window will pop up and you’ll have different payment methods available to you. Making a deposit is very easily done, as we did not encounter any issues or concerns.
The lobby area
Whether you have made a deposit or not you can now head over to the bingo lobby area. The lobby has a good, clean design to it and is not flash or over the top in anyway. Navigating your way around the lobby area is easy. You have a number of different menu tabs which include free bingo, prebuys and progressives. Each of these menu tabs gives you the choice of a number of different bingo rooms. We were quietly impressed with the number of different bingo rooms available.
The bingo rooms
As part of our analysis for this wink bingo review we tried and tested a different number of bingo rooms available. Unlike many other online bingo sites, wink bingo has a chat room just for their new players. This way you get to play bingo for free and also talk with the chat hosts and fellow roomies. This allows you to ask any questions and really get used to playing bingo. This feature is pretty rare and we were definitely impressed. While in the bingo rooms you can also play a number of slot games while still either playing bingo or chatting with your fellow roomies.
Our final recap and overall assessment for this wink bingo review. We are genuinely struggling to find many faults. Yes, we could complain that the website does not look all that flash, but this is what makes wink bingo work. The design means navigation is easy, there are help videos to talk you through any processes you’re unsure of and there is free bingo. It is hard not to like wink bingo and we would highly recommend it. Best of all, you can play for free and if you don’t like it move on.
