Glossy Bingo was launched in the early part of 2013 and although they might not have been around the longest it doesn’t detract from their product. They offer a complete games package, providing players with bingo, slots and casino along with the latest must-have, mobile bingo and games.
If you have played at the online version of their site already then you will know that Glossy Bingo is powered by Microgaming software; with such a well-known platform it is little wonder that the overall player experience is of a very high standard. Visually the online site is not dissimilar to the mobile one; though the mobile app interface has been scaled down to provide a much simpler end-user experience. You won’t see masses of confusing tabs when you first land on the mobile site, just the essentials: Games, Banking, Promotions, Help and My Account.
If in the unlikely event that you have already visited the mobile Glossy and discounted it as it doesn’t offer 75 ball bingo, then you will certainly want to reconsider as there are changes imminent; at time of writing this review (around the first anniversary of Glossy) the site had a pop up announcing not only the forthcoming inclusion of 75 ball games but also the addition of an embedded casino to allow simultaneous play of side games with bingo.
It is clear that this is work in progress and so we hope players will revisit and check out the site for any of the proposed changes. It is also apparent that Glossy are not resting on their laurels and that they want to keep up with software developments and changes to players needs as mobile technology progresses. We think this site is well worth a punt, so read on to find out all the facts on why we think this is a great place to play……
Getting Started at Glossy Bingo
Glossy Bingo doesn’t currently have a specific app available to download, however if you scroll to the top of this page and click play now you will be redirected to their mobile site.
Once the site loads you can save the app to your home screen or play from the browser, whichever you prefer. If you are an existing member then you can just use your usual login details to get started; however for the new player you will need to complete a short online form to register then you will be ready to make your first deposit …. and more importantly receive your very generous welcome bonus (we will cover this in more detail below). Funding your account is really easy too, you can use all the regular card options and there is also the convenience of making deposits via Ukash, Skrill (the old Moneybookers) or Neteller.
Glossy Bingo Mobile Games
The bingo games are pretty straightforward to use. If you are using a tablet then you will be requested (by a helpful pop-up) to rotate your device to landscape. If you are using a phone then this shouldn’t be necessary. Once in a room you will be provided with useful images to assist with all the crucial instructions on playing. These include swiping the screen to the left to pre-buy tickets for the next game or to the right for settings, details of tickets purchased, access to banking, casino games or to return to the lobby. You can enjoy chat with all the other roomies from the games window, just like you would when you play online.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, we do hope that if you are reading this close to the time that this review has been written that you won’t be put off by the lack of 75 ball games. There are still a fair few 90 ball rooms, some with progressive jackpots and there is even a free room that is open on occasion. The 75 ball mobile bingo games will follow, so please be patient ;).
If you love to play slots and instant games then you will be literally spoilt for choice at the mobile Glossy Bingo site. There are a total of 44 at present, these include some rather tasty progressive games: Cash Splash, Major Millions, Treasure Nile and Mega Moolah and some much-loved, well-known games for example Thunderstruck II, Avalon, Tomb Raider and Mermaids Millions. For the avid casino player there are a whole selection of poker games to choose from.
Glossy Bingo Mobile Promotions
Now for the best bit! The welcome first deposit bonus is absolutely stunning at Glossy, players can receive a massive 400% extra when they fund their account for the first time. This means if you pushed the boat out and funded your account with £25 then you would have £125 to play with!
As if that wasn’t already enough of an incentive to sign up immediately, then the offer of a further 3 bonuses should do the trick. Players can benefit from 100% extra on a second deposit, 200% on a third and 300% on a fourth.
There are other occasional promotions, players should check the main site for details.
