Daily Record Bingo has quite the history in the world of online bingo but it hasn’t always been on the Jumpman Gaming software that it sits on now. When it first launched it was part of the Cashcade network powered by the 888 software. However, like many sites on this network, it moved to the Virtue Fusion/Playtech software. The brand then disappeared from our screens for a while but in 2021 made a reappearance on the Jumpman Gaming network powered by Pragmatic Play. A step backwards some might say.
Daily Record is the national daily newspaper of Scotland but don’t be fooled, unlike The Sun’s bingo offering, the gaming experience at this site isn’t quite as impressive. Whilst their goal, as per the home page spiel, is to ‘bring you the best gaming experience from a brand you know’, it sadly falls short of the mark.
With that said, the welcome bonus for new players means that you don’t have to make a deposit to get a few free spins on Starburst, but like all brands powered by this software/network, it’s more about the slots than the bingo. If you love the Pragmatic Play bingo product and prefer brands more weighted towards slots, it’s the site for you.
|Welcome Offer||20 free spins no deposit needed + a spin of the Mega Wheel when you add £10*|
|Best Deposit Methods||PayPal, debit cards, PayByMobile, Paysafecard|
As a new player registering an account with Daily Record Bingo you are offered 20 free slot spins on the NetEnt game, Starburst.
Should you choose to deposit with the site, a minimum of £10 will reward you with a spin of the Mega Wheel. The prizes that can be won by spinning the wheel include up to 500 free slot spins on a selection of games by Eyecon or an Amazon voucher. There are also two other sections of the wheel, Spin Again or Unlucky. The latter means you won’t have won anything.
There are several rules and wagering requirements attached to the bonuses offered by Daily Record Bingo. These start with the no deposit required deal of 20 Starburst spins. They will only be awarded when you have registered a valid credit card.
The maximum you can win using these free spins is £8 per 10 spins awarded (a total of £16). The wagering requirements attached to the winnings are 65x the amount of the bonus won + any remaining wagering requirements. Should you withdraw before meeting the requirements, you will forfeit any remaining bonus funds, free spins, Loot Chest plays and Mega Reel spins.
If you meet wagering requirements then the maximum amount that can be converted to real cash is £250. However, if you have not made a deposit, this reduces to £50. Details of any wagering requirements for the bonus can be seen on the withdrawal page.
If you do deposit and win on the Mega Wheel then the same rules apply for any free spins that are awarded as a result of a win.
Deposits and Withdrawals
Daily Record Bingo offers four depositing options to players at their site. These include two of the most popular options, debit cards, and PayPal. The other choices for banking are Pay By Mobile and Paysafecard.
The minimum deposit amount required is £10, the minimum withdrawal amount is the same. Please note that all withdrawals from this site are charged £2.50 per transaction!
Daily Record Bingo has a dedicated promotions page and it is here that you will see a selection of both time-limited and regular offers from the site, including the welcome package for new players.
Some of the ongoing deals that can be found include:
- Birthday Bonus – Login to your account on your birthday and you can spin the Mega Wheel to win up to 500 free spins.
- Free Spins of The Month – If you make a deposit of £20+, you will then be given the chance to spin a Mega Wheel to win between 20 and 500 free spins. These free spins will be credited to one of two games that change every month.
- Happy Hours – Log in to your account between 3 pm and 7 pm every Wednesday for your chance to win 10-500 free spins on a different slot each week.
- Friday Fun – Every Friday at 8 pm you have the chance to win a share of £2,500 for £1 a ticket.
Each month the time-limited promotions change so it’s worth popping back to the page to see what the next month has to offer.
The site is also home to Trophies, an ongoing promotion where you earn spins on the Mega Wheel for completing particular tasks. The more tasks you complete, the higher your loyalty level rises and the more free spins can be won.
Daily Record Bingo bonus codes are not used to access the special promotional offers but it may be that this brand, like many other online bingo sites, use bonus codes to entice players back to make a deposit. There’s a section on the depositing screen for a promotion code which is indicative of this being the case.
In order to receive this type of bonus, you need to be registered to receive marketing material. This can be via post, SMS, or email.
Should we be offered an exclusive bonus code for our readers, this will be available to view in this area of our review.
When you log in to your Daily Record Bingo account for the first time, it’s hard to even know where the bingo is! You have to use the navigation arrows on the menu to scroll along to find the bingo section.
Once you have found the area, you can see what’s on offer in the way of bingo, and to say we were underwhelmed about sums it up. There were no bingo games available that were set to play for at least an hour! Yes, the site offers a nice variety of bingo games (75, 80, and 90 ball games are all available), but they are all on pre-buy and not the live games we are looking for as bingo players. At the time of the review, there were 13 bingo rooms.
The site is heavily weighted towards slots, casino, and table games and there is an abundance of titles to choose from in these areas. Many different software providers can be found in the portfolio including Red Tiger Gaming, Yggdrasil, NetEnt, Leander, Pragmatic Play, Eyecon to name just a few.
Support options from Daily Record Bingo are limited to just email – firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is an FAQ section available under Help but if we are honest, information in this area is quite limited and far from extensive.
Reach Gaming are the company behind Daily Record Bingo so the sister sites of this brand are:
However, many might consider all sites under the Jumpman Gaming hat as sister sites for this brand. These include, but are not limited to:
Daily Record Bingo have not taken to the TV screens to promote their product, and if we had to hazard a guess, it’s unlikely that we will see them use this medium in the future.
If they do choose to advertise in this manner, details of the commercial will be added to this section of our review.
Unfortunately for Daily Record Bingo, a move to the Jumpman Gaming/Pragmatic Play hasn’t done the brand any favours. With the need for a card registration to claim the bonus, no real bingo-related bonus offers, high wagering requirements, poor customer service and the £2.50 transaction charge per withdrawal, we could only award the site a 3-star rating at a push. The only reason it has achieved this score is the Trophies promotion, nothing else holds any appeal.
