Buzz Bingo was launched in 2018, the rebrand of the retail arm of Gala Bingo. It was only a matter of time before Buzz Bingo brought their product online to complement the land-based clubs and they joined forces with Playtech to offer an impressive gaming experience to players. With the new launch came a partnership with the talent show, The Voice creating a real ‘buzz’ about the product.

New player welcome offer and bonus?
We were quite impressed with what Buzz Bingo had to offer the moment you register on their site. At the time of writing the review (April 2020), new players opening an online account with the brand were offered access to a free bingo room, no deposit required. Our payment details were not required to access the room. There was a game every few minutes between and 10 am and 8 pm and each of the games were 90 ball. The prizes were:
- One line for £2
- Two lines for £3
- Full house for £5
Should you opt to deposit with the site, a minimum of £10 will earn you a £40 bingo bonus when you spend your deposit on bingo. You will also receive 10 spins on The Voice UK slot. In addition to all of that, you will also get seven days of access to the Newbie Room. This is open from midday until 2 pm and then 6 pm until 8 pm daily.
What are the wagering requirements for the welcome bonus?
Your £40 bonus is paid as bonus funds so therefore not withdrawable. However, any winnings derived from the bonus are available for withdrawal and with a minimum withdrawal amount of £5, there is a chance you could be cashing out!
With the 10 spins on The Voice UK slot, the spins have a value of £0.25 each and any winnings you achieve with them are yours to keep, there are no wagering requirements. Any winnings from the free bingo games do not carry wagering requirements either and you can withdraw if you have registered a depositing method, even if you haven’t yet made a deposit.
Is it easy to deposit and withdraw at Buzz?
At Buzz Bingo there are several depositing options available:
- Debit Card
Additionally, for those that use Apple devices, the site has the option to deposit using Apple Pay.
Does Buzz Bingo offer other promotions and bonuses?
The promotional page of this site is literally ‘buzzing’ with an impressive array of special offers and deals. These change regularly with some monthly promotions being time-limited. There are also mainstay promotions, those that don’t change quite so regularly but keep the players coming back to Buzz Bingo for more. These include, but are not limited to:

There are however several different rooms that are exclusive to the site and you can find these under the ‘Exclusive’ tab from the bingo menu
Buzz Bingo TV Ads
When Buzz Bingo launched online, it did so with much fanfare and publicity so of course, they advertised their wares on the small screen. It combined the two sections of the brand, online and retail, in the first-ever commercial. This was upgraded in early 2020 when they promoted their no wagering requirements. Whilst the no wagering requirements is a big thing to advertise, and a great incentive for players to register with the brand, the actual commercial didn’t quite hit all the right buttons for us.
Our review summary
Buzz Bingo has scored a 4.8 from us because we’re absolutely loving the free bingo options available! Not many sites online today offer you the chance to play with no cost AND keep what you win. Throw in great gameplay, an impressive choice of bingo and slots AND easy deposits and withdrawals, it’s not hard to see why the brand has caused a ‘buzz’ in the world of online bingo!
