Pretty Riches Bingo

Bingo Paradise Rating

Pretty Riches Bingo is powered by Nektan and licensed in the United Kingdom and Gibraltar. It adopts a pink, colourful, and slightly tacky aesthetic and hosts a huge number of games from developers like Microgaming, NetEnt, NextGen, Yggdrasil, Pragmatic Play, and Red Tiger Gaming.

A modest bingo selection

Welcome Offer

When you deposit and wager at least £10, using promo code BINGO, you’ll get 40 Spins on Starburst, a £30 Bonus, and a week of Free Bingo.

Or at least, that’s what I think you will get, because the bonus contradicts itself.

As you can see from the image below, it quotes both “30” and “40” Spins, with the image saying that they are for Starburst and the T&Cs suggesting they are for Fluffy Favourites.

The issue is that the bingo bonus is slightly different from the slot bonus, and yet they use the same image. As a bingo player, you can get everything in this image and everything quoted above, but you may want to double-check the T&Cs.

The terms differ from the image

Promotions

The “Biggest Spin Winner”, just like the “Winner Winner Chicken Dinner” promotion on Jumpman Gaming sites, is a redundant bonus and it baffles me that these offers are so popular.

In simple terms, it pays £100 to the biggest winner of a single slot spin, and it focuses on the gross return or the largest monetary amount. Even if you bet £0.01 and win £100, you won’t stand a chance, because a high roller wagering considerably more per spin will beat you with the most modest of returns.

It’s a prize that will likely top-up the balance of a high roller that bets £10,000+ per month and has just secured a 5-figure win, in which case it’s just a drop in the ocean. These bonuses can be beneficial, but they need to be tweaked.

Pretty Riches Bingo also has a couple of reload promotions, but they seem to change on a monthly basis. Take a look at the Promotions page to see what’s available when you join.

Slots and Bingo Room

It’s bingo, but not as you know it. In the past, I’ve spoken about Jumpman Gaming sites that all use the same software—a mixture of bingo and slots—and switch between the name “Games” and “Bingo” seemingly at random. For instance, while you might expect Casper Games to be more slot-centric than OK! Bingo, they’re basically just carbon copies of one another.

Pretty Riches Bingo seems to fall into the same trap and isn’t as bingo-focused as you would expect. In fact, there are 8 tabs in the Pretty Riches Bingo games room and only one of these is devoted to bingo, with just 7 games available.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a decent selection of bingo games, but if you’re expecting Pretty Riches Bingo to be comparable to Gala Bingo, Wink Bingo, and other dedicated sites, then you’re going to be very disappointed.

I would have liked to see more unique games here, as well as a larger selection on the whole, but it’s good to see a variety of Megaways titles, progressive jackpot slots, and a few table games. There is a Live Dealer section as well, but there are no games listed there.

I half-expected that this issue would just be limited to non-members, but even after I had signed up there were no Live Dealer games in sight.

Even after joining, the Live Dealer section remains empty

Depositing and Withdrawing

Pretty Riches Bingo accepts a variety of payment options, including Visa, PayPal, Skrill, Maestro, Neteller, and Paysafecard. There is no charge for deposits but all withdrawals under £30 will cost you £1.50 per transaction. The minimum deposit is fixed at £10 for most methods and withdrawals take around 3 days to appear in your account.

Boku is offered here, as well, but it’s best to avoid this payment method. Not only will you be hit with a 15% transaction fee but you’re also limited to just £30 a day and you can’t use it to withdraw.

Pretty Riches Bingo Review Summary

Pretty Riches Bingo has a Live Chat feature, but it was offline when I joined. It claims to be available 24-hours a day and I joined on Saturday afternoon during what should be prime time for gamblers, but I couldn’t gain access.

To be fair to the site, this happened during the early 2021 lockdown and their Support section did make it clear that there would be some downtime due to staff shortages. I’m not entirely sure why this would be necessary on a feature that could easily be used by remote working employees, but I’m willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.

There are a few other issues, as well. Firstly, when you join, the icon that you select which says ‘I agree to:’ automatically ticks the box to accept “exclusive offers and promotions” through email, telephone, SMS, and Post.

I’m not clued-up on privacy laws, but I’m fairly sure that stuff is frowned upon these days and UK customers should have to make their own choice and then double-opt-in.

The gaming selection is also a little on the short side and can be too reliant on classics, and the aesthetic is dull and uninspiring.

I’m nit-picking, I know, but this is a highly competitive industry and it’s things like this that set the best sites apart from the run-of-the-mill ones. Generally speaking, all of these things would have been acceptable 10 years ago, but they appear very dated in 2021.

As a result, Pretty Riches Bingo doesn’t get anywhere near top marks from me, but as it still has some good promotions and games, along with the backing of an established brand, it’s deserving of 2.5 stars. As there are no half scores and 2 stars would be cruel, Pretty Riches Bingo scores 3/5.
