Paddy Power Bingo is a small part of a massive European gambling brand. It has positioned itself as a straight-talking, no BS betting company that puts the player first, and it’s earned a pretty impressive reputation as a result.
But underneath the “banter” and banned ads, there is a serious company. Not only does the Paddy Power website span multiple gaming and betting options, but it’s part of the immense Flutter parent company, which also lays claim to Betfair, FanDuel, SkyBet, and the entirety of the Stars Group (including PokerStars and Full Tilt).
Paddy Power Bingo is regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority and UK Gambling Commission and can be accessed on desktop or mobile.
As a new player at Paddy Power Bingo, you can claim a total of £40 and 40 Free Spins. You will get £30 to spend on bingo games (with a 1x wagering requirement) and £10 on slots (20x wagering requirement). The 40 free Spins are fixed to the Mystery Reels Megaways slot.
To qualify, you need to deposit and wager at least £10 on bingo games. The credits will hit your account as soon as you qualify but you’ll need to drop by the Promotion section of your account to claim the spins.
There are a few unusual features to this bonus that deserve a mention. Firstly, the Free Spins don’t have a wagering requirement, so whatever you win will be added to your Paddy Power Bingo account.
They are only valued at £0.10 each or £4 in total, but free is free—I’m certainly not complaining.
Secondly, the bonus isn’t only available to new Paddy Power members. If you already have an account with the PP sportsbook but have yet to play a single bingo game, you can qualify as well.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, you won’t qualify for this bonus if you deposit using an e-wallet. This means that PayPal, Neteller, and Skrill will be excluded. It’s best to stick with debit cards if you can.
Paddy Power Bingo has a newbie room, a Loyalty Scheme, and daily Happy Hours, during which you’ll have a chance to earn free tickets, play in guaranteed events, and win a number of big prizes.
It promises “boosted prizes” on the last weekend of each month and has a refer-a-friend scheme, whereby you’ll get £20 for every referred friend who goes on to deposit and wager at least £10.
Promotions come and go all of the time, so keep your eyes on the Paddy Power Bingo Promo section to learn about the latest offers.
Slots and Bingo Rooms
Paddy Power Bingo adopts a similar green colour scheme to the one used elsewhere on the site. The difference is that they’ve added lots of pink and purple accents because apparently, you can have all the money, employees, and experience in the world and still not know that pink-and-green looks atrocious.
Once you get past the vomit-inducing aesthetic, you’ll find a well laid-out bingo room that includes a bunch of top slots and bingo rooms.
You’ll find the usual selection of classic bingo games and game show titles (Deal or No Deal, Rainbow Riches, etc,.) but there are also rooms tailored toward specific types of players.
In the Super Bargain Room, for instance, you can play for as little as £0.02, with jackpots of £50. In the Sapphire Room, this jumps to £0.05 and £500 respectively while in the Gold Room the jackpot climbs above £20,000 and the tickets are just £0.10.
A banner at the top of the page shows all upcoming games and clearly displays information such as player numbers, ticket price, jackpot, and main game prize, making it easy for you to find and join the best games.
Slots and scratchcards are placed quite prominently here and include titles developed by Blueprint Gaming, NetEnt, and Big Time Gaming, as well as some table games (Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette) and Slingo games.
Depositing and Withdrawing
Paddy Power accepts a number of deposit methods, including debit cards, PayPal, Neteller, Skrill, and bank transfers. There is a minimum deposit requirement of £5 (£10 for PayPal) and it generally takes a few days to process your withdrawal.
Many of the sites I have joined process withdrawals instantly, and if I’m using PayPal, that means I usually have my winnings immediately. On one of them, the money was in my account by the time I received a confirmation email!
Paddy Power Bingo is definitely not one of those sites. It will take at least 1 working day to process web wallet payments and up to 5 days for debit cards.
We’re talking about one of the biggest gambling sites in the world during 2021. This is just not acceptable!
On the plus side, the minimum withdrawal amounts are some of the lowest I have seen. You can withdraw as little as £1 using PayPal and the Terms and Conditions claim that you can withdraw just £0.01 just a debit card.
It puts all those “£20 minimum withdrawal” sites to shame.
Bingo Review Summary
Paddy Power is like the eccentric uncle that is thoroughly entertaining but makes you wary every time he opens his mouth. It’s a brilliant site and is easily one of the best complete gambling destinations for UK players.
It also has a cheeky and irreverent side, as shown by its near the knuckle advertising campaigns. Its Shave the Nation campaign, for instance, faked the wanton destruction of the Amazon rainforest and drew the wrath of a million angry Twitter users.
Everyone needs a little Paddy Power in their life and the same is true for Paddy Power Bingo. It is not the best bingo site out there right now and I would still recommend Foxy Bingo and other dedicated sites over this one. But it’s fun, it has plenty of bonuses, and you’re always a click away from a massive sportsbook, a host of lottery games, slots, table games, and even a poker room.
If none of that stuff interests you, Paddy Power likely isn’t the destination for you. If it does, then it most definitely is.
