Bingo Stars Casino Review
Do you know what drives us crazy when we’re starting to review a casino? Several words do it very fast, and “best” is among these words. Bingo Stars, with its bland pink website and an outdated copyright, says that it is the best bingo site in the UK, but we’re not going to believe it so easily.
The legal part looks alright, as the casino is licensed by the UKGC and Alderney. There are about four hundred game titles here, which is not bad for a bingo-oriented website. A list of providers is standard: NetEnt, Microgaming, Merkur, iSoftBet, and a few more. Bingo Stars Casino does have a regular bingo website drawback: there are no slots bonuses here. They have a Welcome Bonus: it’s a 100% match up to €150, but the wagering requirements can’t be met on slots. If you want to play casino games or slots - this place surely is not for you. It might suit all needs of a bingo player, though.
- Licensed by the UKGC and Alderney;
- Live games;
- Live chat support;
- Payments secured by WorldPay.
- No Welcome Bonus for slots;
- No Phone Support;
- Too poor choice of withdrawal methodsю
Bingo is a very interesting game, but if you research a bit, you’ll see that most bingo websites are lame if not to say worse. What we expect to see on a bingo website is exactly what we see on Bingo Stars: pink layout, outdated design, hints about women (only women play bingo, it’s obvious), poor selection of non-bingo games, etc. It looks like the guys just got too tired to make their site good, and stopped halfway, offering a beta version instead of release one.
The only thing that we can’t bitch about here is the licensing. The casino holds licenses from Alderney and the UKGC so that you can be sure about the high quality of customer support, fairness, and reliability.
“The Bingo Stars website looks good enough in comparison to other bingo sites, but is too poor, compared to a modern online casino.”
Banking: The banking options are too poor for any website that offers games of chance. From Bingo Stars, you can withdraw your winnings only via credit/debit cards. There is no third option, and the withdrawal times aren’t stated. Well, they say that all withdrawals will be processed instantly, but it’s a bit hard to believe.
Customer Support: The Support Service is ridiculous. They don’t have a phone number, and the Live chat works from 8:00 to 12:00 AM, so you better not play at Bingo Stars Casino past midnight. Of course, you can use the email support, but our experience says that it’s not very effective.
Software and Game Variety
The game variety is not a strong side of Bingo Stars Casino. You should know that we’ve seen much worse game libraries, especially on bingo-focused websites. Al in all, it’s okay: about four hundred games from Microgaming, NetEnt, Merkur and several other providers. Here are some titles that you might know:
- Slots: Starburst, Thunderstruck II, Eye of Horus;
- Table/Card Games: Blackjack, Roulette, Hold’em;
- Video Poker: Bonus Poker, Double Double Bonus Poker, Triple Play;
Mobile and Live Games
Bingo Stars Casino has a fully functional mobile version, so if you love Bingo above everything else - you can just play it through your tablet or smartphone.
They even have live games, which is a rare event, for a bingo site. The Live games can be found in the “Table Games” section, and you can pick among Blackjack, Roulette, Poker, and Baccarat.
Bonuses and Promotions
There is no Welcome Bonus for slots players at Bingo Stars. Not a big surprise, if you read the previous parts of the review - but still a disappointment. Guys, why you even add slots and casino games to your website, if you don’t intend to treat slots players right? The First Deposit Bonus is for Bingo only and is a 100% deposit match up to €150 that needs to be wagered four times prior to withdrawal.
