About Bingopower

Bingopower is an online bingo comparison site bringing you information regarding games, bonuses, welcome offers and wagering requirements. We have been listing and reviewing bingo sites since 2005. A lot has changed since then, and the gaming industry has evolved both in the quality of games it offers but also in the security to players as well as the regulations that they must adhere to to provide fair play conditions. We gather all the information from bingo sites to give you the best possible overview and choice in the way of independent reviews and bonus information. We believe in giving the you full control over the information available so you can choose the site that is best for them. This is why we built our unrivalled bingo finder tool that allows you to find the best bingo site for you based on criteria that are important to you. Aside from our recommendations you can use our tools and sliders to find exactly what you are looking for.

What is our aim?

Our aim is to bring you the best bingo offers and recommend the best bingo sites at the moment (as these also change with time). For bingopower it is also important to provide this information in a way that is easy to understand and gives you the opportunity to see which bingo site is right for you at a glance, we all know time is precious! The myriad of bingo offers and bonuses can be somewhat confusing, so we have made it easy to find the right bingo site. We review bingo sites fully and independently so that you can read about them and even compare them with others before you join and commit to playing with your own money.

How are bonuses classified?

There are 2 main types of bonuses – first deposit bonuses (or commonly known as welcome bonuses) and no-deposit bonuses. A first deposit bonus is usually given when you make your first deposit, and a no deposit bonus is given when you join a site without having to make a deposit. These are the traditional types of bonuses although there are also newer and more innovative incentives for new players to join bingo sites. These come in the form of free spins which can come as part of the deposit bonus package, or even as a no deposit type of offer, or even free bingo tickets in specified bingo rooms. There are some bingo sites that also offer free bingo games during a certain time, so there is a large variety of incentives out there. One thing that is important, even imperative is to read and pay attention to any terms, conditions and wagering requirements attached attached to each type of bonus and we strongly advise to consult these in each site to avoid disappointment.

Is no-deposit bingo really free?

For all intents and purposes no-deposit bingo means that you can play without having to deposit your own money. With this kind of offer there is almost always strings attached, such as not being able to withdraw any winnings made with this bonus, or restrictions to the games that can be played, or games restricted to a particular bingo room. It is a good way to test a site and see whether you like a bingo site or not but it should only be taken as that.  No deposit bonuses used to be very popular at one time however they have fallen foul of favour for most bingo sites, mainly because if transparency and also regulatory issues, but also they prove to be expensive for the bingo sites in question. Since bonuses change all the time we try to keep up to date as much as possible.

How do we review bingo sites?

Our bingo reviews provide relevant, independent and impartial information. To put it bluntly if a bingo site does not cut it then it does not get listed, and by that we mean that it is not active or promoted. For reasons of transparency we keep all reviews that have ever been listed on this site, even if we cannot recommend these (the reasons will always be listed). Those that do secure a listing are reviewed by joining them and playing so we can provide first hand knowledge. It is that simple! We then tell you about the site features, offers, community and bonuses available. As time passes by bingo sites evolve and change and we aim to revisit each one as often as possible to ensure that the information we provide is as relevant as possible.

How do we decide which sites to list?

We take the criteria which most bingo players use to join a particular site. An obvious one is the bingo bonus on offer but there are other factors too. These include whether they have a good community of players, what incentives are offered to existing players, the quality of the bingo and games, the number of players in the games, the prizes and jackpots and whether there is a good range of side games such as slots and casino table games. Other important factors include the software which the bingo site uses for it’s games and where it is licensed.

Useful sections in Bingopower

No-Deposit Bingo

Bingo bonuses are always changing and many times no deposit offers come and go, so if this is what you are after then it is worth checking our directory of free bingo and no-deposit bingo sites that are currently offering this kind of bonuses. It is worth nothing that no deposit bonuses often come with quite a few strings attached and these will differ from site to site, so always read the small print, the wagering requirements and whether the bonus can be withdrawn at all.

Bingo Reviews

With so many bingo sites around for UK players the amount of choice can be a bit daunting. However we classify them in our A-Z bingo sites directory where you can find the bingo sites listed in alphabetical order, and review them for you to make it easier for you to choose which site better suits your needs, with easy to see essential information. Our reviews are as independent and unbiased as possible although and present all the relevant bonus information as well as main features of the bingo sites.

Bingo Software

Bingo sites are operated by software companies that supply the games. Often there will be the bingo games operated by one company and the side games, slot games and casino games will be supplied by another software provider. One thing that is easily discernible is that bingo sites that fall under the wing of one type of software provider will have similar features and offers. Our bingo software directory lists bingo sites which provide games by software operator. Popular bingo software companies are Dragonfish, Cozy Games, Jumpman Gaming or Playtech.

Mobile Bingo

Most bingo sites (if not all) offer bingo games for mobile and tablet users because in this day and age most users use their mobile to play bingo and casino games. There are some bingo sites that have bingo apps  on platforms such as iTunes or Google Play Store, others allow an app to be downloaded from their secure sites, although most opt for a HTML5 offering where users seamlessly play bingo games on their mobile or tablet on the browser.

New Bingo Sites

There are hundreds of sites available for bingo players to choose from, and although the market has slowed down somewhat in recent years in terms of new sites that appear, it is true that there are new bingo sites available every month. If you are wanting to try something new or like to play bingo where there are less players or are after new experiences then sometimes new bingo sites offer just that as well as very enticing bonuses.
