Bingo Appy brings the world of real money online bingo to the social gaming environment of Facebook. You can play in the Funtime Room with the £5 bonus you are given when you install the app on Facebook, and the £1 free you get every day for the first 6 days, but to play in the real money bingo games and the slots and scratchcard side games, you’ll need to register and deposit – and since this is just a cut down 888 site running inside a Facebook frame and you have to register separately from your Facebook account, why bother? There are better promotions to be found at other 888 sites.

What’s special about this site?
It runs on Facebook.
What’s not so great about this site?
It is a missed opportunity, sadly. The social bingo games that also run on Facebook have much more in the way of interesting gameplay/content (and ways for friends to help out), whereas Bingo Appy is really just a front end for a traditional 75 and 90 ball bingo site (not a very busy or exciting one either) that runs in a frame inside Facebook. That is not necessarily a good thing as it makes parts of the site harder to read/use – the slots, for instance, come up very small. Also you still need to create an account with them that is separate to your Facebook login. One day someone will bring out an app that gets the huge Facebook social bingo player base into playing real money bingo, but it does not look likely that this will be the one.
