Deposit £10+, Spin the Match Up Bonus Wheel, Top Prize 1000% Slot Bonus
Last update: 3rd November 2023
OK Magazine’s bingo site is back in business after a four year hiatus. It’s now on Jumpman, with bingo rooms by Pragmatic Play and a massive range of slot games. OK Bingo’s new welcome offer gives players to win up to 1000% bonus on their first deposit but note that it is for slots not bingo.
OK Bingo is owned by Reach Plc, which is one of the UK’s biggest commercial news publishers. The site takes its name and theme from the much-loved celebrity and soap mag, OK! Magazine. The OK brand itself is what makes this online bingo site unique, although many other sites share the same network.
Since launching in 2009, OK Bingo has moved software platforms multiple times. It started out on the Cyber Bingo platform before moving to GTECH, and after a brief hiatus, it migrated to Jumpman Gaming’s 15 Network.
The first thing that you notice about the site is the varied range of games on offer. Alongside bingo staples, there are hundreds of slots, table games, live casino games, and instant wins. There’s also an element of gamification as you can gain player levels by collecting trophies which are awarded when you complete simple tasks.
The range of games at OK Bingo is particularly strong due to the operator’s partnerships with many of the world’s best-known software providers. Pragmatic Play provides the bingo platform, as well as many of the site’s most popular slot games, but you’ll also find Eyecon, NetEnt, Red Tiger, Barcrest, Microgaming, and Slingo Originals titles available.
While some online bingo sites only have a smattering of side games, OK Bingo and its sister sites allow you access to a vast array of online slots. There are even jackpot slots to enjoy, although they don’t include any big progressive jackpot slots, only Eyecon games which are known to award fixed prizes of £25,000 to £50,000.
The bingo rooms sit within a dedicated tab in the games lobby, and each room has a thumbnail image that shows the bingo variant, room name, start time of the next game, and total prize pool.
Although OK Bingo hasn’t won any awards, it was nominated for Best New Bingo Site (following its last relaunch) in 2021. As it was a player-driven nomination, it says a lot about what the site’s members think about it.
The owner of OK Bingo, Reach Plc, also owns many other respected online bingo brands. Plus, the site’s operator, Jumpman Gaming and its Pragmatic Play Bingo platform are highly regarded within the industry.
Furthermore, OK Bingo is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission.
The OK Bingo logo reflects the connection to OK! Magazine, and the colours that are used throughout the website are the official reds and whites that fans of the magazine will instantly recognise.
As the Jumpman Gaming bingo platform only allows for minimal alterations, the key areas of the website look the same as other 15 Network bingo brands. That said, everything is relatively easy to find thanks to a concise top menu, a members’ area where you can sign in or sign up, and the ability to browse the games by game type such as Hot Slots, Bingo, and Casino. You can also add games to your Favourites tab so that it’s easier to find them on future visits.
OK Bingo features no less than 4 online bingo variants (90-ball, 80-ball, 75-ball, and 30-ball). It also has Pragmatic Play’s unique Bingo Blast game, which is a fast-paced variant in which the bingo balls explode as they burst onto the screen. Pragmatic Play also have a 50 ball bingo game but this is only available occasionally as part of seasonal promotions.
There are a sufficient number of bingo rooms to choose from, although there are no site-exclusive rooms. They don’t tend to get too busy, which you could see as a positive (more chances to win with less competition) or a negative. There’s also no chat facility which means there’s a lack of community spirit.
The prizes range from modest to mega as the dedicated jackpot rooms regularly offer networked jackpots of over £20,000. Sadly, there are no free bingo rooms. Penny bingo fans, however, will be delighted to find that ticket prices in some of the rooms start at just 1p.
There are very few bingo promotions available as most of them target slots, casino, and Slingo players.
There are several hundred slot games that you can either play as mini-games while in the bingo rooms or in a separate window. They include all the most popular Eyecon titles like Fluffy Favourites and many other slots including Rainbow Riches.
As well as bingo, OK Bingo boasts a strong selection of table games and live dealer games that include 9 Pots of Gold Roulette, All Aces Poker, Speed Blackjack, Mega Wheel, and Sweet Bonanza Candy Land.
There are also scores of scratch cards and casual games, plus many exciting Slingo games.
The promotions at OK Bingo are determined by the operator, Jumpman Gaming. Many of them are ongoing promotions, but you’ll also find a few monthly and seasonal giveaways.
Rewards are awarded through the Mega Wheel and Turbo Wheel, which do not guarantee you a prize but have the potential to award free spins and Amazon vouchers.
In terms of bingo, the promotions are rather lacking as they’re mainly focused on slots players rather than bingo fans.
While most Jumpman Gaming brands don’t have mobile apps, OK Bingo does. So, if you’d like to have quick and easy access to all your favourite bingo games and slots, simply head to the iTunes store or Google Play store to download the app for your mobile device. You can also play via your mobile browser.
The mobile site is an optimised version of the desktop bingo site, and it supports all of the available bingo games along with most of the casino games.
You can easily navigate your way around. Plus, you can quickly contact the support team by clicking the “Email Us” link, which automatically opens your default email app.
There are several payment methods that you can choose from, including debit card, Paypal, and Pay by Phone, but you should be aware that you’ll be charged £2.50 for every withdrawal that you request, regardless of your chosen payment method.
There are a few rough edges which we’d like to see smoothed over such as the withdrawal fees, the lack of live chat and telephone support, and the absence of chat in the bingo rooms. However, if you’re looking for a brand that gives you a varied range of bingo variants, as well as hundreds of slots and casino games and the chance to win a plethora of jackpots, you’ll fit right in at OK Bingo.
The brand actively encourages responsible gaming and prompts players to set daily/weekly/monthly deposit limits. Self-exclusion and “Take a Break” are also supported, and the Reality Check tool can be used to keep track of how long you’ve been playing.
