There’s no hole in the middle of Polo Bingo; it’s a site that offers you a rather spiffing gaming experience from start to finish! It’s not a site exclusively available to the hoi polloi who may be interested in horses and polo, but one that has a little something for everyone, whatever their background.
Polo Bingo first made an appearance in the world of online gaming in July 2010 and since then, has undergone many different aesthetic changes. It is part of the United Commissions group, so has quite the team behind it. It’s a site that takes its name quite literally and boasts a classy look on the home page. However, you won’t find any horses dotted around the site, other than maybe in one or two of the slot games.
When they first launched, they do so with quite a fanfare, offering players the chance to win a car. Since then the promotions haven’t really offered anything quite as interesting in the prize department, but there are plenty of jackpots on offer on a regular basis. If you get lucky, you might even win enough to buy yourself a brand new ride – be it a horse or a car!
|Welcome Offer||Deposit £10 for a £20 bingo bonus and £10 games bonus.|
|Best Deposit Options||PayPal, Apple Pay (mobile only), Debit Card|
Before making a deposit, it is worth noting that you are given three days’ access to The Biggie room. This room boasts free bingo games with prizes of a minimum of £10. The room is open from midday until 10:45 pm daily. The access to this room is complimentary with no deposit required.
Making your first deposit with Polo Bingo of at least £10 will attract a 200% bingo bonus and a 100% games bonus. The offer is only valid to players making their first deposit with the brand and a minimum of £10 is required. Any deposits above this value will not earn additional bonuses as the maximum bingo bonus is £20 and the maximum games bonus, £10.
Any winnings from The Biggie, the free bingo room that you can access for three days from the point of registration, are subject to 3x wagering requirements.
There are wagering requirements on both parts of the bonus that is awarded with your initial deposit. These are different for bingo and games. For the bingo bonus, the wagering requirements are 4x the amount of your deposit and bonus received. For the games bonus, wagering is set at 50x the amount of your initial deposit and bonus received.
Only wagering with bonus funds will count towards meeting the wagering that is required. It is worth noting that not all instant win games contribute towards wagering so it is worth checking the terms and conditions of the offer. A maximum of £100 plus the initial deposit value can be transferred to your real cash balance when wagering has been met.
Deposits and Withdrawals
Polo Bingo offers several depositing options to players wishing to fund their account. These are standard to the Dragonfish / Grand Battery Holdings network:
- By phone – 0808 238 9836 (or +44 203 713 9046 from outside the UK)
- Debit cards
- ApplePay – UK players only, mobile payments using an Apple device
When you have registered to play at Polo Bingo then you can use the pulldown menu in the top right-hand corner to navigate to the My Offers section. At the time of preparing the review, there were a very limited number of offers.
The welcome offer was available and details of the Super Millionaire game but nothing else. The Super Millionaire game plays on the 3rd Saturday of each month and is a sliding jackpot game. If you can call bingo on the 75 ball game in 24 calls, then you will win a million!
What’s not advertised on the promotions page is the likes of the free bingo that is on offer, the progressive jackpots available in many of the rooms, and also the big money games. It’s worth having a look around the lobby to see exactly what sizes the jackpots are at and when the games play.
Polo Bingo bonus codes are not advertised but if you opt into receiving marketing material from the brand, you may find yourself furnished with a code or two. These could be bonus codes for deposit offers or it may be that they offer you free spins on popular slots.
There are no ‘fouls’ in the bingo and slot game choice at Polo Bingo and you certainly won’t find yourself bored when playing here. When you enter the main lobby you are presented with several menu options in the horizontal navigation. Live Bingo, Special Jackpots, Exclusive, Free Bingo, and All.
For bingo, there are several game options. As expected, the site offers 75 ball and 90 ball bingo as well as the 52 ball options of Bingo Roulette and Suit Up.
When it comes to slots, there are plenty of big-name developers and their titles amongst a portfolio of instant win games. Like the bingo navigational menu, these are separated into different categories; Trending, New Games, Daily Jackpot, Progressive, Slingo and All. You’ll find the likes of Starburst, Twin Spin, Shaman’s Dream, Immortal Romance, Clover Rollover 2 and Bonanza Megaways to name just a few!
Support is available in several ways and all are listed in the ‘Useful Link’ section of the pulldown menu next to your username at the top of the screen.
There is also a dedicated help room that is accessible through your bingo chat. Under the chat host’s name, simply choose the ‘Help’ option and type your question.
Polo Bingo is part of the United Commission group, or as some call it, the Netboost Media network. Sister sites include, but are not limited to:
Polo Bingo has not yet advertised its product on television. However, should they ever choose this form of marketing, details of the commercial will appear in this section of our review.
Polo Bingo comes up a little bit short when it comes to promotions and special offers and we weren’t overly impressed with the wagering requirements on the games bonus. However, with a plethora of choice in games (both slots and bingo), we still felt the site was worthy of a 3.5 star rating. The free bingo is a great way to ‘try before you buy’ but there is often quite a wait between games.
