Games and software

Many Bingo sites allow themselves to simply have a few different bingo halls, and that’s the length and breadth of their offering. Not Blighty! Here, there are many various bingo halls, of course, playing 90 ball, 75 ball and 52 ball bingo games, but you’ll also find plenty of slots and other games to keep you busy when you want a break from the rolling numbers. All the games are on the same site, so you don’t need to open a new window or click out of the site to try something new.

Let’s look at the bingo games first. The halls are split by theme, as well as by kind of player. Some of the bingo games are strictly for VIP players who have advanced to the right rank. Others are themed by the day of the week. We love the variety you can find here, from Saucy Sunday which is no charge to play and has a jackpot of £250, to Tuesday Rocks, which has a jackpot of £1,500 and costs just 0.25p to play. There are more themed nights for every day of the week, so you’ll have to play to learn them all! Some of the halls cost nothing to play, while others cost a small amount to get started. In the Street Party game for example, everyone is a winner!

The slots are also a huge amount of fun, chosen for their variety and their great software providers. Some of our all-time favourite slots are here, such as Starburst and Cleopatra. Others include Heartburst, RioFever and 99 time, or Pong Feature. Some of the slots have instant jackpots, such as Genie Jackpots Instant, so you could be on your way to a really big win with just one roll of the reels!

Live casino

As the website focuses on Bingo, there aren’t any live casino games here like Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat or Poker. The slots collection is a nice addition to the website, but any further, and this would lose its feel as a cosy Bingo hall and start becoming a much larger and less personalised online gaming casino. The live action in the Bingo games is more than enough immersive fun, and anyone who wants a live experience should certainly give it a go!

User interface

Blighty is definitely easy to use, with everything you need accessible from the main screen. The site has been built for ease of use, and so all the main games are found on the home screen, with links to the popular bingo halls, as well as a one-click support link to live chat if you have any problems. At the bottom of the screen, you’ll find helpful links. These include Frequently Asked Questions which really answer anything you might need to know, as well as the Privacy Policy, Terms and Conditions, and warnings about responsible gaming.

The site is well designed with gorgeously bright colours and a really fun and unique feel to it. At the top of the page, you will find a scrolling bar that shows you recent winners and how much they have walked away with. If that isn’t enough to make you jealous and ready to fill your own bank account, we don’t know what would be!

Mobile casino

There are two schools of thought when it comes to mobile functionality. For some, a mobile app is essential and makes for a better gaming experience, where you can get notifications, alerts and a self-contained experience. For others, mobile apps take up storage and battery, and the notifications are annoying! These types prefer to save a shortcut to a mobile website on their browser, and access all the functionality they need from there. This latter category is who Blighty are aiming to please. Although they do not have a mobile app for either iOS or Android devices, the site does have a fully functioning mobile website. This can be used on desktop, tablet or mobile phone. More than half of the games are available on these devices, making Blighty a truly omnichannel experience! Players love enjoying the bingo and slots on the move, and everything has been optimised really well for touchscreen and small screen devices.

Gamification

As soon as you start playing at Blighty, you’re part of the rewards program. Just pay £1, and you’re on Level 1! After that, you’ll need to keep playing and return often to stay rising in the ranks, which go all the way to Level 15. This is a great incentive to keep using the site, especially as the rewards are so brilliant. Some are simple, such as extra bonuses while you’re playing the slots or in the bingo halls. Others are more unique, like mystery prizes or elite bingo halls where only your level and above can enter. It certainly makes for a lot of friendly competition!

Banking

There could be more options available at Blighty for payments and withdrawals. Both can be done via Bank transfer, or with credit or debit cards such as Visa or Mastercard, and eWallets like PayPal, Neteller, and Entropay. Unfortunately, the withdrawal times are not the fastest we’ve seen by a long shot. We do love that you can withdraw as little as £5 at any one time and that there are no maximum withdrawals outside of the house wins. But wire transfers might take up to 10 days to show in your bank account, and even credit and debit cards can take as much as a week. When it comes to eWallets, this is slightly faster at 5 days, but we’ve seen other bingo halls and gaming sites manage it in 24-48 hours.

OUR VERDICT

We’re big fans of Blighty bingo! Although it’s a relatively new site, just launched in 2017, they are already making waves in the world of online bingo, and gaming more widely. We love the loyalty program which plays on our competitive streak and offers exciting incentives to keep rising to that elusive Level 15. On top of that, the games and halls available each day are varied and fun, with whimsical extra to keep us on our toes. The variety is fantastic, with some no cost games as well as reasonably priced bingo halls aplenty.

Additionally, the inclusion of some of the top slots, both instant wins and regular reels, keeps us interested even when we need a break from stamping off those number cards. Enough payment options and 24/7 customer support are just the icing on the cake.
