Viking Bingo is an online slots site and bingo room from Jumpman Gaming, the masters of bingo-slot combos. As the name suggests, it adopts a viking theme, albeit a half-hearted one, and it has a couple of interesting features.
The Viking Bingo Welcome Bonus will be familiar to everyone who has played Jumpman Gaming casinos in the past, including sites like Rose Slots and Egypt Slots. The exact layout changes, moving from Loot Chests to Mega Reels and Mega Wheels, but the actual offer is the same.
When you deposit £10 or more, you can open the Loot Chest and find a variety of prizes within, the biggest of which is a batch of 500 Free Spins on the NetEnt slot, Starburst.
These bonuses always look great on the surface, but the small print ruins them a little.
For instance, there is a maximum bonus conversion that is equivalent to your lifetime deposits, with a maximum cash out of £250.
The problem here is that your “lifetime deposit” amount is the same as your first deposit at this point. So, if you deposit £10, land 500 Free Spins, and then win £100 from them, you will lose £90 when you make it through the wagering requirement.
Speaking of which, the wagering requirement is very high, as it’s fixed at a massive 65x and applies to all credits and Free Spin winnings.
Needless to say, this bonus is not quite as impressive as it seems, though it’s certainly not terrible.
Although the Viking Bingo Welcome Bonus is a little disappointing, the same can’t be said for the site’s loyalty bonuses. There are many of these available and they are constantly changing, so you’ll never get bored.
Some of the bonuses available at the time of writing include:
- Monthly Prize Giveaway: A giveaway offering Beats headphones. All players who deposit £50 or more are given access to this prize draw.
- Monthly Scratch For Cash Giveaway: Similar to the above, but with £1,000 in cash up for grabs as opposed to headphones. Players are given the chance to win simply by playing ‘Scratch Card Games’ between the first and last day of the month.
- Cash Drops: Regular jackpot prize drops available to players who play certain games at certain times.
- Weekly Happy Hours: Play every Wednesday between 3-7pm for the chance to win up to 500 Free spins.
And this is just scratching the surface, as there are over a dozen promotions available at the time of writing.
The best of these is the trophy program, whereby you complete challenges relating to certain games, promotions, wagers, or activities, and in return, you unlock trophies and rewards.
These rewards include additional Loot Chests, and as your lifetime deposits will have no doubt increased by this point, the Loot Chest terms are less restrictive.
Slots and Other Games
When it comes to slots and bingo games, you can’t beat the Jumpman Gaming network.
It’s not the biggest selection of slots or bingo games you will see. At around 500, it’s actually on the small side for a modern casino. But all bases are covered here, including bingo games, jackpot slots, Megaways slots, and Live Casino games.
Some of the UK’s best games and most popular developers are included in the mix, and the fact that you’re playing across a huge network means the bingo rooms are never short of players.
All games are mobile-friendly and Viking Bingo has some great software for both desktop and mobile players. The site that you see when you’re not a member is not the same as the one you see when you sign up. You’ll be ushered to a member’s area that looks completely different and offers a tailored gaming experience.
Depositing and Withdrawing
Most Jumpman Gaming casinos trip up when it comes to deposits and withdrawals, and Viking Bingo is no exception.
On the one hand, it includes payment options like Visa, MasterCard, and PayPal, as well as Pay By Mobile for smartphone users. You can also deposit and withdraw as little as £10 at a time, which makes for a nice change from the sites insisting on £20 minimums.
But that’s where the benefits end.
Withdrawals can take several days to process, and that’s just the time it takes the casino to release them, not the time it takes for them to reach your account. With PayPal, the funds should be with you shortly after this period expires. With debit cards, you’ll need to wait a few more days.
The biggest offender is the withdrawal fee, which is fixed at £2.50 and applies to all players and all payment methods. You’ll pay £2.50 whether you’re withdrawing £10 or £100, which means you could lose as much as 25% of your winnings.
It’s a ridiculous sum for such a big online casino brand to charge and until it’s fixed, it’s one that I will keep complaining about.
Viking Bingo Review Summary
The only thing that sets Viking Bingo apart from other Jumpman Gaming sites is the name and theme. There are a few extra warrior helmets and longboats, but that’s basically it—this is a Jumpman Gaming casino through and through.
There are some pros and cons to this.
First, the good. Jumpman Gaming has a great selection of games and is one of the best operators at blending slots and bingo games. It also has the best selection of loyalty bonuses you’ll see and a great loyalty program.
Now for the bad, and there are a few things to pick through.
The withdrawals are too slow, the withdrawal fee is too high (the fact that it exists in the first place is a problem) and there is some horrible small print attached to the Welcome Bonus.
- Lots of Loyalty Offers
- Mobile Support
- Lots of Jackpot Slots
- Big Live Casino
- Many Bingo Games
