Bingo7 is a Jumpman Gaming site that has been around for a few years now, and like many other sites that use the Jumpman engine, it makes use of big slot games and a bonus wheel that can be activated at certain times.
It’s certainly a big draw for existing customers as it means that regular depositors can grab a chance at getting an extra bonus or other freebies added into their cashpot. The site is very well-presented, with a contemporary design and plenty of things to see and do – it has all the traits of a great Jumpman site in that it knows how to sell to its audience!
The site is also presenting a fantastic promo code offer for new customers – simply deposit £10 and you can get £20 back in extra cash as a free bonus.
200% cash matching bonus codes do not come ten a penny, and we’re grateful that big sites with branded games and opportunities still aim to roll out exclusive deals for their players. We think that this deal is particularly enticing as you don’t just get a cash match but also a spin on the hallowed bonus wheel, too!
The wheel will grant you an extra bonus or freebie between £5 and £2500 guaranteed – but to take advantage of it, you’ll need to deposit at least £10 despite the site accepting £5 at lowest. It’s worth bearing this in mind if you really want to use your bonus code to grab both opening offers – and we can’t say we blame you!
Promo codes and deals aside, let’s have a look at the site itself. As mentioned, it looks very appealing indeed – it walks the line between professional and bright and bouncy, which we think is perfect for attracting a balance of casual and serious players.
While the site does look great and while there is plenty of information on display – everything seems to be nicely laid out for users of all levels – the theme may not match up to those which have captured the interest of players elsewhere.
The site, despite big promo codes and other deals and offers, is far more weighted towards slots and other games than it is bingo, despite the name. Anyone who has played on a Jumpman site before will already rather know that this is the case – particularly as they tend to promote their slots and other gaming experiences on all quarters.
Despite this, there are progressive jackpot events and other deals going on here for bingo heads – but we’re not quite sure how appealing the site and catalogue will be to online dabbers. For slots players, however, it’s a great site to jump into and especially with that promotion code beefing up your cashpot!

We generally expect bingo and gaming sites to at least make some effort when it comes to appealing to portable players. After all, they are fast making up a fair chunk of the audience travelling to such sites! More and more of us are moving away from clunky PCs and laptops to browse, shop and play on the go – and in 2017, this trend is only rising higher.
Any website not at least installing a mobile site or providing an app for players isn’t doing enough to cater to the user experience in our opinion – and sadly, while you can certainly access, register and login to the site from a mobile device, you’re presented with the same site you’ll get on desktop.
While you can access the site it’s not especially clear how well you can play games and access other features through portable devices. On one hand, it’s great that the full experience is available – but on another, the lack of a custom-built mobile site or at least a responsive design is troubling.
A site such as Bingo7 seems to be big enough and interested enough in its users’ experience to warrant a specific portable platform – but it is yet to come to fruition. There are gaming sites far older than Bingo7 which already provide at least a ‘lite’ version to tide over portable players – to say we are slightly disappointed here would be fairly near the mark.
Getting registered is certainly encouraged early on, however, while it is simple to do, you have to be able to register to see what some of the games are that are on offer. This type of lockout may turn some of your more casual players away, particularly as it is often nice to have a bit of a window shop to see what’s ticking behind the scenes before throwing your cash in.
While we can’t complain about the sign-up process – and while there’s no requirement of you joining a mailing list or anything similar – we would have liked there to have been some form of preview of the games before the requirement to sign up and login.
Deals and Offers
There are plenty of loyalty promotions, jackpot events and regular chances for you to win big across the site, and there is of course the bonus wheel that may be unlocked to you at a later date.
The site’s promotions and deals do change slightly from season to season but otherwise stay rather static – and there are sadly no exclusive opportunities when it comes to bingo despite a number of progressive jackpot opportunities. That being said, regular players and existing customers will likely find plenty to do and plenty to try out with the range of promos on offer.
The games here aren’t especially apparent until you register and login – this, as mentioned, can be slightly problematic – but with the guarantee of popular games such as the ever-reliable Fluffy Favourites, you can be assured of plenty of support for slot jockeys and casino fans.
It is the bingo, again, which is rather watered down – which is a shame, especially given the appearance of ‘bingo’ in the site’s name!
There are two bingo rooms here, and while the experience is both solid, fun to get into and while it benefits from the odd event or jackpot here and there, it really does seem like an afterthought.
This means that other sites may well provide a more satisfying experience for bingo players – we would have liked there to have been more of a balance here, but this is an issue that has arisen on other Jumpman platforms before. Certainly have a look around – and you’ll no doubt enjoy the bingo rooms that are here – but we would have liked to have seen more.
Your wagering terms here – which kick in once you wish to withdraw if you’ve applied a promotion code or two – will expect you to play back 4x your bonus on bingo and 40x your bonus on other games. These terms are fairly reasonable particularly in terms of bingo, but there are other withdrawal terms you will need to make yourself aware of – which we cover for you below.
Payments and Withdrawals
To pay in and withdraw, you will need to have a major UK card to hand. This means Visa, Maestro, MasterCard and Solo are accepted here, but there is no functionality for other alternative methods. We think the site could benefit from opening up its payment availability to services such as PayPal and EntroPay to capture a wider audience.
Withdrawals, too, need to be scrutinised. While you can withdraw once you have £30 in your cashpot – and while you may only have to wait up to 7 days to receive your money, Bingo7 requires that you put in at least £100 of your own money before you can do so. These terms are very restrictive – and may well put more casual players off signing up.
You can get help from either the Bingo7 contact number on 01481 734554, or via email through [email protected]. It’s nice to see that there are verbal and written support avenues available – though live chat would have been a nice touch.
For all its sheen and attractiveness, there are sadly a few problems over at Bingo7 that may impact upon how it is received by the wider gaming community. Bingo games are fairly watered down, there is no dedicated mobile site, you will be required to pay in £100 before you can withdraw and only UK cards are accepted at this time.
These are all issues that may need to be addressed – which is a shame, as the games and experiences here are worthwhile and will appeal to many players.
