Bucky Bingo is the online arm of the company you may recognise from the land based bingo clubs. The company has over thirty years of experience in the industry and they say they are ‘trying their best to reflect that in their bingo games, promotions and chat rooms’. Land on the homepage for the first time and you will find an attractive purple site that is both well designed and extremely easy to navigate.
Just underneath their menu, you will find a large scrolling banner detailing a few of the Bucky Bingo games and latest promotions. Next to this is two smaller graphics showing some of their instant games and the size of the jackpots you could win. Below this is a further six banners and they double up as links taking you directly to both 75 and 90 ball bingo, this saves you having to go through the lobby all of the time. At the bottom of the page you will find their latest blog entries, and you should always take the time to read them as they are a great to keep up to date with what is going on.
Click on the large ‘Join Now’ button in the top right hand corner and you will be taken to a simple registration page, where you will need to enter your basic details. At the stage there is no need to enter any credit card details, but obviously you will need to add them when you want to make a deposit. If you do decide to play for real, they will welcome you with a small bonus, but unfortunately this is where they end. There are plenty of depositing options though including all major credit and debit cards, plus a selection of secure online payment schemes.
Bucky Bingo is powered by the Virtue Fusion software and is part of the Virtue Fusion network. They are home to 75 ball bingo, 80 ball bingo, 90 ball bingo, slots, scratch cards, numbers, casinos games and multiplayer slots. Head into the lobby and you will find everything is well laid out with just five tabs to choose from. Click on any of these and they will show you the rooms that are available and all of the information you need to help you decide where best to play. It is in here you can also access your account and the banking area of the site.
All of the bingo rooms use the networks standard layout, but they do match the Bucky Bingo colour scheme. The room is split down the middle, with the whole left hand side dedicated to the chat room. You can create your own profile and choose a profile pic, allowing other players to learn a bit more about you. When you make new friends, you can add them to your buddy list and this enables you to chat in private, which is a real handy feature, especially during busy times when the chat room is moving quickly.
The right hand side of the screen is dedicated to your cards. You can clearly see the balls as they are called and there is a breakdown of the jackpots up for grabs. There is a large area to display your cards, but if you still have problems seeing them, you can take advantage of the zoom facility. You can also access the mini games and these open up in a separate window, so do not interfere with your bingo fun. You can even add the ones you play regularly to a ‘Favourites’ list so you don’t have to keep on searching for them.
Overall, Bucky Bingo is a quality operation, the site looks great, has plenty of games and ample promotions to keep you entertained. Thanks to them being part of a popular network, you will find jackpots are higher then average, but you must remember you will be competing against a lot more players. Bucky Bingo do a lot of things very well, it is just a shame that they don’t offer anything above and beyond all of the other sites on the network.
Bucky Bingo Review – Bingo Games
Game Options at Bucky Bingo
Bucky Bingo has a great range of games for you to enjoy including 75 ball, 80 ball and 90 ball bingo. They are not short on side games either with plenty of slots, scratchcards, number games and casino games to keep you occupied. In addition to all of this though, they also have multiplayer slots that combine the fast paced action of the slots with the chance to compete against other players for even larger prize pots and community jackpots.
Bucky Bingo runs on the Virtue Fusion software, so all of their rooms are well laid out with plenty of features. Click on ‘Account’ at the top of the page and choose ‘Options’ from the drop down menu and you will find the controls for the game, the sound, the graphics and the chat options. There is a nice selection of dab shapes, dab colours and even novelty dabbers so you can personalise the look of your game.
Bucky Bingo hosts nineteen hours worth of free bingo games each week in their ‘BBs Free’ room, giving you the chance to enjoy your favourite game for free and still win with real cash prizes. The action takes place between 11am and 12pm and then later on between 11pm and 12 midnight all throughout the week and you could win a share of £1,000 worth of guaranteed jackpots.
On Friday nights though, Bucky Bingo kick things up a gear with even more free bingo games. The early morning session stays the same, but between 6pm and 11pm, every other game in ‘The Buckingham’ room is totally free to play.
All of these games are accessible to all depositing players, and everyone is given eighteen tickets, guaranteeing that everyone has an equal chance of winning. All prizes are paid in bonus bucks (BBs) and credited to your account instantly
Bucky Bingo is part of the Virtue Fusion network and therefore benefit from three Bingo Linx games each day. These big money games start at 12pm, 6pm and 10.30pm and in total there is £8,000 worth of guaranteed jackpots to be won.
Bucky Bingo is home to a great range of promotions with a weekly line-up that is boosted each month with a range of specials. Weekday promotions include free bingo, roll on bingo, bonus games, slots tournaments, value days and of course the Bingo Linx games that we detailed above. All of these offers are spread across all of their rooms, so it does not matter which version of the game you prefer, you will always be able to join in the fun.
The monthly specials are where you can win the really big prizes though, and you regularly see the network hosting winning weekends, where they give away hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of extra jackpots over three days of special games. They do occasionally give away prizes too, and in the past we have seen them hand over X-Factor final tickets, helicopter rides and even a romantic cruise down the river Thames.
