Gina Bingo are currently offering a rather impressive £10 of free bingo to all newly registered players. The offer is also extended to those that already have an account but must be claimed by emailing a request to their support team. The terms and conditions for this particular promotion are relatively loose when compared to those of its competitors, especially when you take into consideration the lack of a wagering requirement. To get yourself some free cash courtesy of Gina Bingo I recommend the following “method of extraction”:
2. Make a small token deposit of £10. This should not be risked, it’s just to allow withdrawals to take place later on and confirm your identity, which Gina Bingo need to do for legal reasons.
3. Enter one of the many rooms available and enjoy yourself with a spot of free bingo.
4. Once you have reached the minimum withdrawal amount of £30 in winnings, start the process of getting your money placed in your bank account.
Nice and simple. The only real barrier here is that you will need to win £30 but if lady luck is on your site that shouldn’t be any problem at all.
Gina Bingo is owned and operated by Bingo Entertainment, one of industry’s pioneers. Bingo Entertainment launched their first online bingo site way back in 1999 and by 2004 had broken out of the US market, becoming an international success. Gina Bingo is actually the company’s first brand that is entirely focused on the UK market. With over 60 members of staff based in offices across Europe and the United States, you can play with the peace of mind that comes from dealing with a true market leader.
Website and Software
The Gina Bingo website may not be the flashiest of sites but it’s functionality is all there. The site is relatively easy to navigate and all the usual information is there, with the company deliberately trying to draw the attention of the user to the terms and conditions of promotions, which I felt was a nice touch. I’m a massive fan of companies that try to be as upfront as possible with their customers, so to see an operator doing what others would consider unthinkable is not only refreshing but also, in my mind at least, earns them a lot of respect.
The on-site games are powered by Byworth Entertainment, which is a relatively unknown software package but nonetheless packs quite the punch. Players have the option of 30, 75, 80 and 90 ball bingo with a selection of more than 20 instant side games to keep the fun going between rounds. There are almost a dozen progressive jackpots to take advantage of and you will have the option of playing in up to nine rooms at once. Personally, I like to turn auto-marking off and play manually with between 3 and 5 cards in one room though.
Community and Customer Service
The community, being predominantly English, is fairly easy to get involved with. Everyone is friendly, polite and relatively welcoming but the chat rooms did seem to be a bit over crowded, causing the chat to scroll by in the blink of an eye. It didn’t detract from the overall experience though.
Customer service was very responsive to my questions, even at 4am on a Friday morning. I found that my emails were answered within the hour and live chat requests were picked up within a matter of seconds. The staff were extremely knowledgeable and offered a solution to my problems relatively quickly.
This may be Gina Bingo’s first attempt at the UK market but I can’t help but feel it will be their last. They have come up with a friendly, engaging and enjoyable solution that players will be drawn back to time and time again. If I had to pick holes in their service I would suggest a website redesign as their current site may come across as “untidy” to some but it does get the job done and that’s all that really matters.
