Paddy Power Bingo Review

Don’t fancy a trip down the bingo hall with the blue rinse brigade? If you’d rather play from the comfort of your sofa but still want the social element, have a look at Paddy Power. This Irish site is a biggie in the betting world and has a loyal following of bingo roomies in its buzzing chat rooms. If you want to play at a secure and well established bingo site with gorgeous graphics and a huge choice of games, Paddy Power is well worth checking out.
The £20 signup bonus certainly swung it for me! On the subject of money, you can play for small or high stakes in Euros or pounds sterling on Paddy Power and they take plenty of different payment methods. Also, they don’t keep you waiting when it comes to cash payout time. US gamers can’t play for real but that just means more chances to win for the Europeans!
Paddy Power has 3 different ways for you to play bingo. First up is the pure bingo site for those of you that want bingo and nothing else. Play slots, scratch cards, top trumps, or novelty games with the real chance of winning some huge progressives. I’ve currently got my beady eye on the Clover Rollover, standing at a cool £3.5million!
You’ve also got Paddy Power’s classy casino areas. There’s the Instant Casino, which is particularly good for fast, fun bingo keno games. The Download Casino boasts enhanced Flash games and big cash pots.
Play for free or play for real and take a shot at the progressive jackpots. In addition to their varied selection of bingo games, Paddy Power also caters for fans of table games, video poker, slots and jackpots. New bingo games are always popping up on this site. I will say this for Paddy Power; they certainly don’t rest on their laurels.

Software

The Paddy Power pure bingo site uses Virtue Fusion software, famed for its functionality, ease of use, speed and reliability. The graphics are smooth, brightly coloured and themed to each of the different bingo rooms.
Paddy Power’s online casinos use WagerWorks. Expect slick, Flash-based games akin to those you find on the floors of Vegas casinos. Fans of branded games are in for a real treat. WagerWorks offers all the big branded games with excellent animation. Think Monopoly, Cluedo, Cleopatra, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy for starters. Any cons? It’s good news for PC owners but not so great for Mac users.

Graphics

Very warm and welcoming with rich colours and plenty of fun, girly graphics on the pure bingo site. It’s all quite pink and bubbly but not in an overbearing way! Each of Paddy Power’s online casinos has an appropriate look and feel to it. They haven’t taken the blanket approach to using graphics. The Live Casino is very classy and sticks to traditional colours you’d find in a bricks and mortar casino. The Instant and Download Casinos feature more funky graphics and themes, all appropriate to the different games. You will need the latest version of Flash to get the games to work but that’s a free download that takes about 5 minutes tops.

Download and Registration

If you do fancy playing on Paddy Power’s Download Casino, you’ll be up and running quickly. It’s easy to be put off by download requirements but this is no trouble at all. And it’s free! Once the software’s uploaded you’ll have more choice of bingo games and the chance to play for megajackpots worth millions. Definitely worth clicking ‘OK’ and waiting a couple of minutes!
Registration is no bother, either. Again, Paddy Power has gone for the speedy and simple approach with a 4-step signup process that only asks for essential information. No endless surveys or marketing questions. They just want to know your personal details, address, and card details if you want to play for real.

Game Variety

Tons of keep you busy on Paddy Power’s bingo site and the casino sites. With bingo, you’ve got 75, 80 and 90-ball games as well as scratch card games, top trumps and plenty of novelties. Slots fans are particularly well catered for on Paddy Power. They’ve got loads of big branded games with funky graphics, bonuses and thousands up for grabs with jackpots. Don’t be put off trying a new casino game. Paddy Power’s games come with easy to understand explanations and there’s a very handy tips section to get you started.

Wagering Requirements

Really simple. All you need to do to place a wager is bet the bonus award amount 32 times. After you’ve done that, have a look at your bingo/casino cash balance and you’ll see the amount has been converted into cash and popped straight in.

Promotions

Paddy Power trumps many other online bingo sites when it comes to player promotions. I’ve played bingo on plenty of different casinos and I’d have to say this particular site wins top marks for promotions. There are daily, weekly and big monthly star promotions. You’ll find all sorts of freebies up for grabs and plenty of free bingo games. I love Free Bingo Thursday and the X Factor Parties with their extra BBs! I also got involved in Last Woman Standing, where I staked £10 on 1st Nov and am now gunning for a share of £3000. Fingers crossed!

Tournaments

The strong online community element to Paddy Power means their tournaments scene is pretty busy. There are tournaments going on all the time and not just for the video poker players. Go to the pure bingo site and get involved in one of the many free daily bingo tournaments. Have a look at the bingo slots tournaments too and you could see your name creeping up the leaderboard for a cash prize.

Loyalty

Is Paddy Power’s bingo loyalty scheme any good? I seem to have accumulated a fair number of bingo bonuses so I’d say a big, fat yes! It’s all very simple. Each £1 spent earns you 1 loyalty point. As you acquire more points you move up the different loyalty levels. There are 5 in total. The higher you get the more bonuses you earn.

Customer Support

You can get help from the Paddy Power team 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. They’re contactable via phone and email or you can chat to an operative on screen used the ‘Live Help’ button.
