Balmy Bingo Review

Rating: 4.5/5

Rating: 4.5/5

Balmy Bingo is a Jumpman site with a summery tropical island theme – strangely apposite as it was launched in spring 2019 hot on the heels of the hottest February day yet recorded in the UK.

About Balmy Bingo

Balmy Bingo is a tropical-themed online bingo site where you can imagine that you’re basking on golden sands under the hot sun.

What makes this brand unique is that not only is it well-stocked with Pragmatic Play’s full suite of online bingo rooms, but it also boasts a massive collection of slots, table games, Slingo games, scratch cards, and live dealer games. It also encourages you to collect virtual trophies as rewards for completing tasks.

The owners of Balmy Bingo have seveal other bingo sites but they are almost all on the Dragonfish platform so with Balmy Bingo they are trying something a bit different. Although it’s generous with its bonuses and player rewards, it might raise a few eyebrows when it comes to its wagering requirements.

Games at Balmy Bingo

Balmy Bingo uses two different software platforms to bring you a mouthwatering feast of games.

Jumpman Gaming’s proprietary solution powers the majority of the casino games, which are contributed towards by leading providers like NetEnt, Microgaming, Big Time Gaming, and Eyecon. The bingo rooms are powered by Pragmatic Play.

The lobby gives you a taste of what types of games you can enjoy, and while there’s a Jackpots category, it only features Eyecon slots. The remainder of the slot games offer something for every taste and budget with classic slots like Joker Rush Cash Collect nestling alongside the latest Megaways slots and popular titles like Starburst, Thunderstruck, Twin Spin, Book of Dead, Rainbow Riches, and Gonzo’s Quest.

Trustworthiness & Reputation

Balmy Bingo is a reputable online bingo brand that forms part of Jumpman Gaming’s 15 network. Jumpman Gaming, the operator, has an excellent reputation and is currently responsible for more than 100 online bingo and casino brands.

The site is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Alderney Gambling Control Commission. It is also a GAMSTOP partner and provides players with several responsible gambling tools.

Site Design

Of all the Jumpman Gaming bingo brands, Balmy Bingo is one of our favourites as the site design instantly transports us to a sandy beach where we can watch the waves gently roll in from a prime spot on the golden sands.

The welcome offer floats above the clear blue waters, encouraging you to claim up to 500 free spins through the new customer promotion.

You can also view some of the featured games and read more about the site.

The simple main menu lets you move around the site with ease. The three main pages are Trophies, Promotions, and the games lobby (All Games). There’s also an FAQ page (which is hidden away within the footer) that covers common issues and topics relating to account management, deposits, bonuses, withdrawals, and deposit limits.

A Closer Look at the Bingo Games

When it comes to online bingo variants, Balmy Bingo boasts more than most. It offers a range of 90-ball, 80-ball, 75-ball and 30-ball games which can be played in approximately 10 different rooms.  Thanks to the Pragmatic Play bingo platform, you can also experience the heart-racing Bingo Blast variant, and as with many of the games on offer here, you can choose from several stakes to suit your budget.

There are no free bingo rooms and no chat rooms, but on the plus side, the rooms don’t ever get too crowded.  As for prizes, they range from around £5 to £20,000 depending on the game type, and you can often buy tickets for as little as 5p.

We’d like to see more bingo-related promotions as they’re currently very focused on slots. However, we’re very happy to see that you can enjoy a wide choice of mini-games like Rainbow Riches, Fluffy Favourites, and Fishin’ Frenzy.

Additional Products

There are several additional products that you might like to try out in between bingo games.

They include a varied selection of RNG table games such as European Roulette, All Aces Poker, Classic Blackjack with Perfect 11, Solitaire, and Baccarat.

There’s also the amazing live casino, where you’ll find a vast range of live casino games including Lotus Speed Baccarat, Speedy Roulette, Blackjack Miami, and Card Matchup. Plus, there are many fun live game shows like 7’s on Fire, Vegas Ball Bonanza, Mega Wheel, and Sweet Bonanza Candy Land.

If you’re a fan of scratch cards and casual games, you might wish to check out some of the available titles such as Rainbow Riches Piles of Cash, Yahtzee Instant Tap, and Football Scratch.

Promotions

The welcome offer is the highlight for new players, but there are also many offers and competitions to take advantage of as a regular member of Balmy Bingo.

For example, at the time of writing there’s the Scratch for Cash promotion where you can enter the £1,000 prize draw every month by playing qualifying scratch cards, a daily bonus game called Rewards Reel where you can collect sets of symbols to win slot spins, a monthly £2k Slingo giveaway, trophy rewards, free spins deals, happy hours, a monthly takeaway competition, and the Turbo Wheel and Mega Wheel bonus games for re-depositors.

The only shame is that the promotions are more focused on casino games than bingo.

Mobile Usability

There’s no Balmy Bingo mobile app, but this is often the case with online bingo brands these days. This is because the website was created using HTML5 which caters for all device types. So, whether you choose to play on a small smartphone screen or a larger tablet screen, you still get an excellent playing experience.

The mobile site, which you can access using your mobile browser, automatically shrinks to fit your device. It lets you tap and scroll to launch the different games and move around the site. Plus, you can use the Cashier to top-up your account or withdraw winnings while you’re on the move.

Payment Methods

Balmy Bingo lets you choose from 6 different payment methods, which range from debit cards and e-wallets to pre-paid cards and mobile phone payments. The only drawback here is that you can only withdraw to your debit card or e-wallet, and you must pay a £2.50 processing fee for each withdrawal.

Final Thoughts

While there’s room for improvement with regard to bingo chat, withdrawal fees, and wagering requirements, Balmy Bingo still holds its ground thanks to its enormous range of bingo and casino games. It’s great to see that live casino games and game shows come as part of the software platform, and we like how you can earn trophies each time you play. If you fancy dipping your toe in the warm water, Balmy Bingo could be just the thing.
