Welcome offer for new players
When you register a new account at this bingo site and make your first deposit of at least £10 with the site using the code BINGO, you have to spend £10 on bingo to release the bonus.
As well as the bingo bonus, you will receive the spin of the Mega Wheel and the chance to win free spins on the Super Scratch game. (We won £11.80 thanks to 25 free spins).
You can also access the Beginner’s Luck free play room for seven days!
Please note: If you are a Paypal customer you will not be eligible for the welcome bonus.
Wagering requirements for new players
The wagering requirements for the bonuses offered by bgo Bingo vary between bingo and slots, which is standard practice when you are able to use the bonus for two different game types.
Additional rules around the bonuses are that any winnings from the Super Scratch game can only be used on specific games. The list of these can be found on the terms and conditions page. It’s quite an extensive list, but subject to change. There’s a little something from all the popular slot developers though.
For bingo, the wagering requirements are 5x the bingo bonus that you are awarded and for slots, 65x the winnings derived from any free spins.
It is worth noting that your bingo bonus expires after 3 days, you free spins in 24 hours and any casino bonus, in 7 days.
How can I deposit and withdraw?
You can deposit at the site using any of the following methods. It is worth noting that not all will accept withdrawals and there is a £2.50* free for each withdrawal.
- Debit card
- Instant Payments by Citadel
The minimum deposit and withdrawal amounts are £5.
Please note that you are not eligible for the welcome bonus if you use Neteller or Skrill to make your first deposit.
*This is due to be removed in the not too distant future.
bgo Bingo promotions
bgo Bingo has quite an impressive promotions page with an array of special offers to take advantage of as a player at their site! It would take us a while to list them all, and as some are time-limited, we thought we just give you a couple of examples of what you can expect.
- The Big Competition – this appears to run a weekly basis (at least at the time of the review (September 2020). To enter you have to deposit £20, wager £10 on tickets in the Fairy Delight Room, and £10 on any mini-games You have then qualified to play in three special games with for the chance to win Argos, M&S, and Amazon vouchers.
- Candy Club – this is the exclusive loyalty club from bgo Bingo. Rising through the ranks will see you earn various rewards.
For the latest offers and promotions from the site, it is always advisable to pop along and check the promotional page out for yourself. There’s always something happening at the site.
bgo Bingo bonus codes
There is a bgo Bonus code required to claim the welcome bonus. Use BINGO when you make your initial deposit.
Additionally, some of the promotions that the site offers will require bonus codes in order to opt in to participate.
We do not currently have any exclusive bonus codes for bgo but should we be offered any, they will appear in this section of our review.
Games available to play
Powered by the Playtech / Virtue Fusion software, this site offers you quite the array of different bingo games. We found several variants of the 75 ball option. You have pattern games but with three chances to win, single option pattern games, and then the multi-line version.
When it comes to 90 ball, there are even more choices at bgo Bingo. Not only does the site have standard games of varying speeds and ticket prices, but they also host several different themed games in this variant. These include, but are not limited to, Age Of Gods Bingo, Deal or No Deal Bingo, and Fluffy Favourites Bingo.
Extra features on bingo games include roll-on prizes as well as 2tg and 1tg games.
The site is also host to 80 ball bingo or Cashline / Shutterboard that some like to refer to it as.
In amongst all the bingo games on offer, you will find a selection of big money games and also, quite the choice of free bingo.
Your bingo wallet is also transferable to the bgo Casino which means when it comes to slots and instant win games, you’re pretty much set! Not only that, but some of the titles are available to play in the same window as your bingo so you don’t have to keep switching between screens to get the most of your online bingo experience.
Jackpot slots are hosted at bgo Bingo too and all of the most popular titles are available in the impressive portfolio. But things don’t stop there! You can also choose to participate in the Live games if they appeal to you.

bgo Bingo sister sites
bgo don’t have sister sites for bingo in the sense that they are owned by bgo Entertainment Ltd. However, there are three online casino/slot sites owned by the company.
Others consider sister sites to be brands that share networked rooms and if that is the case, then any site powered by the Playtech / Virtue Fusion software is a sister site.
Below are just a couple of names from the Virtue Fusion bingo camp:
bgo Bingo TV ads
bgo Bingo has had several celebrities promoting their brand in commercials including Paris Hilton. However, for us, the adverts for the site that were most impressive were those featuring the late Verne Troyer.
Unfortunately, we couldn’t find the commercial promoting bingo featuring this little star, but there are a number still available on YouTube for the casino side of bgo.
Please note that the above advert is from 2015 so the welcome offer featured will no longer be valid.
Should they launch more advertising on the small screen, we will update this section of the review.
Our review summary
Although we love that bgo Bingo has some exclusive games, a decent loyalty programme, and a good selection of both bingo and slots, we aren’t overly impressed with the withdrawal fees and slightly higher wagering requirements on bonuses. It’s for this reason the brand has only been awarded a 3.5 star rating at this time.
However, they do give away bonuses regularly which redeems them a little.
