Balmy Bingo launched in February 2019 when we would have all been dreaming of warmer climates or considering where our next summer holiday was going to be whilst in the depths of winter. Opening with a design that transports players to a sandy beach with palm trees and blue skies, but is it a venue you’ll be spending your time at?
The site is powered by a combination of software from Jumpman Gaming and Pragmatic Play, the latter only being introduced in early 2020, and is part of the 15 Network. Sadly, bingo is like the after sun to the slots at this site as, whilst they offer several bingo rooms, none of the games are live unless your timing is spot on!
The site is home to the Trophies promotion which sees you awarded with further spins of the Mega Wheel for each of the tasks that you complete. The introduction of the Pragmatic Play to the site meant that you can now enjoy the Bingo Millions games here. These games offer you the chance of winning a £1.5 million jackpot!
It’s the slots though that are most impressive and there are many to choose from. The only qualm we have is that this is supposed to be a bingo site.
|Welcome Offer||Deposit £10 and spin the Mega Wheel to win up to 500 free spins on Fluffy Favourites|
|Minimum Deposit Amount||£10|
|Best Deposit Methods||Debit Cards, Paysafecard, PayPal, Pay By Mobile|
|Software Used||Jumpman / Pragmatic Play|
The welcome offer for new players at Balmy Bingo is the chance to spin their Mega Wheel when you deposit at least £10. The top prize and the ‘big sell’ by this site and others on the same network is that you could win a top prize of 500 slot spins on Fluffy Favourites.
There are other prizes to be won on the wheel and these are mostly fewer spins on Fluffy Favourites or Irish Luck. You may also win a £10 Amazon voucher, or you could spin the wheel again or, worst-case scenario, land on the ‘unlucky’ segment and receive nothing.
There are wagering requirements on any of the winnings derived from the free spins you may win on the spin of the Mega Wheel. These are quite high at 65x the amount of winnings achieved.
Winnings from the free spins are capped at £8 per 10 spins that you are awarded from the wheel.
Should you withdraw funds from your account before meeting the wagering requirements, any free spins remaining in your account, and any winnings derived from the free spins, will be forfeited.
It is also worth noting that there is a maximum amount that you can convert to real cash even after meeting the requirements; only £250.
Deposits and Withdrawals
Balmy Bingo don’t offer as much choice as some of the other brands that offer bingo online but the most used banking options are available:
- Debit cards
- Pay By Mobile (transaction fee on deposits of £5, £10, or £20)
For deposits and withdrawals, the minimum amount is £10. Please note that when you do process a withdrawal, you will be charged £2.50 for each transaction.
There are many different promotions to participate in at Balmy Bingo and many of these are listed on the promotions page that is accessible from the main page of the site.
Some of those listed are time-limited offers and each month, there is a new time-limited offer for you to get involved in. At the time of the review, there was the Mega May Giveaway and players could win a selection of Dyson products just by wagering £10 on a couple of specific slot titles. Every £10 wagered earned an entry into the draw.
Below are a couple of examples of ongoing promotions:
- Free Spins Of The Month – Each month the free spins of the month change and you will be awarded a spin of a Mega Wheel for every qualifying deposit of £20.
- Happy Hours – If you are a funded player you could win 10+ free spins on a different slot every Wednesday. Simply log in between 15:00 and 19:00 to claim your freebies.
Please note that the promotions shown in this section of our review may have ended so we advise checking the site’s page for the current offers and deals.
We found one promo code ‘PRO’ that can be used with a £20+ deposit for a chance of winning 50-500 free spins. This is valid once a week.
Balmy Bingo doesn’t tend to use any other bonus codes for their regular promotions as the emphasis seems to be on the Mega Wheel. It could be that you are sent a bonus code as a promotional offer if you are registered to receive marketing material from the brand, so if you’re looking for this type of offer, ensure you have signed up.
If you’re a bingo connoisseur then you may find yourself a little disappointed with the offerings from Balmy Bingo. The reason for this is that they do not offer live games, games that play every few minutes. Instead, they focus on the pre-buy games. The site is home to Pragmatic Play’s Bingo Millions games though, and if you fancy taking a chance on winning a top prize of £1.5 million, then you may be more than happy with what they have to offer.
Like all sites on the 15 Network, Balmy Bingo makes the grade when it comes to slots choice. There’s an impressive number of titles to be found here and new ones are added often. A selection of software providers has their names in the catalogue of different slots and instant wins available and these include, but are not limited to, the likes of Yggdrasil, Blueprint Gaming, Microgaming, Eyecon, Quickpsin, and NetEnt.
You are limited in how you can contact the support team at Balmy Bingo. They host an FAQ section and then your only other option is to email them at the following address:
They aim to respond to your emails within two working days.
The 15 Network is responsible for many different sites online today and the Jumpman Gaming/Pragmatic Play power the games on those brands. It is these that are the Balmy Bingo sister sites and below are just a few of the names in the bingo family tree:
You can find more information about other sites on the same software platform on this page.
Like the majority of the brands on this network, there has never been a Balmy Bingo TV advert launched.
Should they promote their product by way of a television commercial in the future, details of the advert will be listed in this area of our review.
Whilst you are transported to a tropical paradise from the home page of Balmy Bingo, we’re sad to say that it’s not a place that you’ll find a bingo player sunning themselves regularly. There are numerous reasons for this, the main being the lack of live bingo games. Add in high wagering requirements and the charge for withdrawals, and the discerning bingo player will be relaxing elsewhere. It’s for these reasons we can only award this brand a 3-star rating.
