Wink Bingo Review
With its cute candy coloured design, bonus sign up incentives and generous jackpots Wink Bingo makes for a great place to play the great game. While they don't have a huge variety of games rooms compared to the selection offered by other sites they manage to really make this work for them.
Wink Bingo use a fairly standard sign up process although, as they offer a £10 no deposit bonus they do require you to enter your card details as part of this. However, if you're really not keen on doing this until you have had the chance to check the site out you can still register but won't be eligible to claim the bonus.
You do need to make sure that you enter your card details correctly as any winnings you receive using your bonus funds will be credit to the card account that you provide during the sign up so it's definitely worth doing a double check. You should also make sure you type in your password and email address correctly as they don't ask you to verify this information.
With its bold design and 'ice cream' colour scheme Wink Bingo is a really welcoming looking site. The homepage is clearly laid out with different boxes focusing on different aspects of the site and easy to navigate links so although there is a lot of information featured its not hard to find your way around.
The bingo rooms are no less clearly set out (and no less candy coloured although somehow not in too much of a 'girlie' way despite being largely pink) so everything from choosing a games room to play in to buying tickets is intuitive.
Thanks to its clear layout the Wink Bingo site is really easy to navigate around and as you're credited with a £10 no deposit bonus when you sign up you can start getting familiar with its setup before you've even made a deposit.
While Wink Bingo continue with their simplistic theme and only run 4 bingo rooms (two house 75 ball games and two 90 ball games) this actually makes deciding where to play a whole lot easier and means the chat is a lot cosier than other more spread out sites.
In the bingo rooms themselves, the screen is cleverly laid out to fit your bingo cards and chat screen comfortably together. You can also play instant games here and these open in a conveniently sized box that you can reposition over either your cards, or the chat box depending on what you're doing at the time.
Like many other sites, Wink Bingo use 3rd party Aquapay to process any credit requests and, as you will have already entered your card details on registration depositing money to, or withdrawing funds from your account is completely painless. For added flexibility you do have the option to register alternative payment options too and both Firepay and Neteller can be used.
Wink Bingo keep 75 and 90 ball enthusiasts happy by offering 2 rooms dedicated to each. They also run an entertaining selection of instant games ranging from fruit machines to scratchcards and poker.
However, while this all sounds fairly standard, Wink Bingo really stand out from the crowd by offering you 10% cashback on any losses you make each week while playing both bingo and instant games making for a win-win opportunity.
Wink Bingo raise the bar even further with their jaw dropping jackpots offering coveralls ranging from £10K to £5million and that's just for starters. They also run progressives jackpots (starting from £100) in 'The Hangout' 75 ball room and both 90 ball rooms.
With only 4 main chat rooms Wink Bingo have fostered a really friendly, supportive community that's instantly welcoming. This is only helped by the fact that their CMs are some of the nicest around and are always keen to check that everyone is ok and having fun.
To keep things interesting CM's frequently run chat games that give you an extra opportunity to earn bingo points. A chat game schedule and detailed explanation of what the different games entail is available via the 'Quick Links' tab in both the games rooms and the lobby although CM's will explain the rules when new players join.
As you'd expect from such a well organised site, Wink Bingo have a really competent customer services team in place to assist you with any queries that you have.
You can contact the team either by emailing them using the form on the 'Contact Us' page (they'll aim to get back to you within 24 hours)or by calling them on a toll free number that's manned 24/7. However, once you've registered as a member, by far the easiest way to contact their customer services time is by using their 'Help' chatroom.
This is accessible via the drop down box at the top of the chat section in all games rooms and using this means you get an almost instantaneous answer to your queries. Once you've selected the help chat room from the drop down list you simply need to enter your query and wait for a response. Rather usefully you can check where abouts you sit in the help que by clicking on the 'members list' icon (it features an image of 2 people and a white arrow and is situated to the top right of the chat box) and this will give you a rough idea of how long you'll have to wait for someone to get back to you.
Wink Bingo take measures to ensure the security of any 'sensitive information' you enter into their site (such as your personal details and credit card information) by using the best SSL 128 bit encryption technology available.
In addition, to help protect your privacy, they also guarantee that any information you provide will be kept completely confidential and back this up with an assurance that your details will not be sold or passed onto a third party.
