Kitty Bingo Review
Kitty Bingo is one of the newest generation of online bingo sites around having only launched in late 2012, but we are the first to admit that this is something you would never guess simply by looking at the site. OK – in appearance it will not be to everyone’s taste, as it lives up to the Kitty name and theme with lots of cartoon cats scattered around in various poses, which can be a bit off-putting for anyone looking for a macho looking site to play at or simply anti-cats. However, if you put the look to one side you can only admire how well constructed the site is.
Kitty Bingo is extremely easy to navigate, with everything clearly labelled and very straight forward to find, and we loved the way that everything is in the open. They are licenced and regulated by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission and they use their own unique bingo gaming software, which means that if you are fed up of trying new sites, only to see they are seemingly identical to bingo sites you already play at, you will not have that problem here. We think their new software is certainly the cat’s meow!
There is a great winners section where you can see the top winners from the day before as well as the most popular games, great for any players who like to follow trends. There is also a chart showing the top instant game wins, showing which games brought the most luck and how much players won on them. For those players who like to have everything out in the open and transparent there is even a chart showing the promo winners from the week before, both for cash and points winners.
Freebies, Deposit Bonuses, and More…
Kitty Bingo entices new players to join them by giving a 500% welcome bonus. This bonus offer replaces the 100% to £50 first time deposit bonus + free slots spins. Personally, we were not a fan of using the previous welcome bonus for bingo games due, as it carried a “too high for bingo” wagering requirement. Unlike the previous bonus, this bingo bonus carries a low, bingo player friendly 3 times wagering requirement.
On all subsequent deposits, you will also normally receive a 50% deposit bonus up to £100, with a minimum deposit of £10 needed to qualify. However, the current Kitty Bingo 150% bonus for returning (reloading) players gives you an additional bonus up to £75 on each of your second and third deposits.
If you are not having a lucky time you will appreciate the weekly cashback too, which will range between 5% – 15% depending on your VIP level.
Bingo & Games
When it comes to actually playing online bingo you will see that Kitty Bingo keeps to a traditional approach by offering 90 ball and 75 ball bingo. For the chance to win an even bigger jackpot, there is also 90 ball and 75 ball progressive jackpot bingo games, where part of your ticket money is added to the jackpot until a lucky bingo player gets a full house in the set number of calls. There are a variety of chat games you can enjoy while you play bingo, where you can win Kitty Points or free bingo cards. If you enjoy trying your luck at other games though, you will not have to look too far as there is a fabulous mix of side games here.
Kitty Bingo have a brilliant selection of slots games. We particularly like how you can search by the number of pay lines they have, ranging from the 10 or less category to the 50 and over. You can also find and enjoy scratch card games, roulette and card games on their great piece of bingo software. There is also a separate section for progressive jackpot games including Zoo Zillionaire, and Dino’s Rhino.
Most Kitty Bingo games are very easy to play and come with different ticket prices as well as prizes. Games start from just 1p and rise upwards, so you will always find something to suit your budget.
Special Games, Prizes, and Promos at Kitty Bingo
There are tons of fantastic promotions here to tempt you, some of which are just available for a certain time whilst others stay around for a lot longer. Look out for regular promos such as daily No Limits bingo, Pandora’s Mystery Box each Thursday, Cat’s Pajamas, and the last Friday of the month £10K slider – the list goes on and on. Prizes include cash, points and prizes although you will sometimes play for bigger prizes, including gadgets and holidays! There are also offers for slots players and a first time depositor’s game where 1p can win you £75.
As you play bingo or any other game on the site, you will earn points, which will help you benefit in the Kitty Loyalty Club. For every 1000 points you have accumulated you can redeem them to get £1. There are five levels in the Club – Bronze, Silver, Gold, Ruby, and Emerald. Upgrades will be determined by your activity on the site and you will receive an invitation from the VIP team, along with a VIP welcome gift, once they have decided you have earned the right to move up a level. Higher levels offer better rewards, including faster withdrawal times, larger birthday bonuses, better promotions and a bigger cashback.
Payment Options at Kitty Bingo
Kitty Bingo does not offer as many methods of depositing and withdrawing money as most other bingo sites. You can deposit using Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, debit cards, or NETeller, with a minimum of £5 needed. To make a withdrawal, choose between Visa or debit cards, or PayPal with a minimum withdrawal of £10 required, or banker’s draft, with the minimum being £20. Withdrawals cannot be made to MasterCard. All payouts were previously processed by AquaPay. However, Worldpay and/or Payment Solutions Ltd is now what will appear on your statement when you deposit to or cash out from Kitty Bingo.
Final Thoughts Regarding Kitty Bingo
>We think Kitty Bingo is (by leaps and bounds) the best thing that has happened to the online bingo world since – well, since Wink Bingo. It should come as no surprise that Daub Limited (the company behind Kitty Bingo) was the brains behind Wink Bingo. Daub Limited are pioneers of the bingo industry and we are absolutely delighted to see them back in action with their own unique software and branded bingo sites that put smiles on the faces of millions upon millions of bingo players. Daub now falls under the corporate umbrella of Rank Group plc. They are still run by the same innovative company, just under a larger corporate umbrella.
We love the fact that Kitty Bingo offers a diverse and unique portfolio of games from bingo to slots. The bonuses and freebies found on this new bingo site are more than enough to give players all kinds of value. They also have selected numerous fun and exciting slots games for us to enjoy on top of the bingo games.
The only aspect where they could use a little help is in the payment-processing department. They are currently limited to the ways players can fund their account or cash out. However, considering this site is a start-up, we are quite understanding – especially since cashout takes a mere 3-5 days from request to receipt. This is far better than average when compared to other online bingo sites (namely those on Dragonfish software). We expect Kitty Bingo to add additional payment options within the next twelve months.
Overall, we award Kitty Bingo with an overall “A” rating, citing that they are in fact the total package in terms of online bingo, slots, and game play.
