ABC BINGO – ONLINE & MOBILE
ABC Bingo is one of the more veteran bingo sites on the market. Owned by Cassava Enterprises Ltd. (which is a part of the 888 holdings group), they currently hold license in the UK and Gibraltar. As well as a limited number of slots from NetEnt, Dragonfish, and IGT, it provides a substantial amount of bingo rooms for players to get involved with. An eye-catching bonus of £100 for your first £20 deposit can be seen almost at once on ABC’s homepage in addition to its schoolteacher mascot. An… odd choice for the mascot but we’ll roll with it.
BONUSES & PROMOTIONS
As mentioned, the most immediately noticeable thing about ABC Bingo is its welcome bonus. Players can get up to £100 in a deposit match plus 20 free bingo tickets to help them get started at ABC. A fairly decent welcome bonus.
What else is there? Well, aside from a 10% cashback bonus, and a Refer a Friend bonus, there’s a ‘Win A Year of School Supplies’ bonus which, again, feels a bit odd. Obviously, it fits in the theme of school and learning but who in society goes to school? Children. Why this sort of thing is even a bonus at all, unless its assuming all the players have schoolkids, is baffling. Nobody even likes school, anyway. And yes, while it is nice to win a new pencil case for your favourite nephew, it’s not exactly a satisfying prize for what could otherwise be a fairly decent casino.
The general wagering requirements are six times the original amount before you can withdraw which is a little above the average for many bingo sites like these.
GAMES & SOFTWARE
Three types of bingo exist at ABC Bingo Casino. This includes 90-ball, 75-ball and 5-line bingo which players can choose to engage with in many different bingo rooms. For of the rooms are free for those at ABC Bingo that meet the minimum deposit requirement. Waiting times are pretty much non-existent as new games are starting constantly. ABC Bingo is literally one of the easiest places to play bingo.
It’s almost absurd. On top of the bingo, however, you have a fair few slots from NetEnt, IGT, Eyecon and Microgaming. Popular slots include Jack and the Beanstalk, Fluffy Favourites, Starburst and Cleopatra. You can also play some virtual casino games like Blackjack and Roulette if that takes your fancy.
If you’re worried about safety, rest easy knowing that ABC Bingo operates on software that has been tried and tested, approved by eCOGRA and monitored by RNG. All games are easily playable across a multitude of devices.
PAYMENTS & SECURITY
Payment and financial issues at ABC Bingo are relatively simple. Payment methods range from basic debit/credit card payments, to wire bank transfer, to e-wallets like Neteller and Paypal, and to pay by phone. The deposit limit is at quite a revolutionary low of £5 per transaction which is pretty generous in our eyes.
Withdrawals, on the other hand, are more of an issue. It can take up to seven days for one to come through the limit, too, is £5 but waiting so long for your money to come is a little disheartening. The process is very similar a lot of Cassava sites and ABC Bingo is, sadly, not much different. However, it is a system that works and is based off a strong clarification system that ensures security and safety for all players.
If the cartoon schoolteacher mascot (Vicky) isn’t the best guide for you, ABC Bingo offers a wider range of support for players in the form of an FAQ page and a tutorial on how best to play bingo on their site. More specific help is available through their email, telephone and live chat function at any time. Help is always on the horizon at ABC Bingo, making it one of its few redeeming features.
Overall, we’re quite disappointed in ABC Bingo Casino. For a site that’s been around for a while, it sure does get a lot of things wrong. Promotions that are oddly out-of-touch as well as theme that can be misinterpreted/deemed inappropriate, it’s certainly not winning any medals on the aesthetics front. Not to say that it’s ugly, per se, just a little tone-deaf. It does have a fair few decent slots, however, so ABC Bingo isn’t all bad. The customer service isn’t terrible either with a strong foundation for support, not to mention the actual bingo itself is varied and some of the most easily accessible we’ve ever encountered.
It’s a recommendation but not a strong one, sadly. We expect more from a site that’d been around for so long. In short, we expected better and got far less than that. Nobody is sadder about it than we are.
