To look after long-term players, Spice Bingo runs a VIP scheme here that gives you VIP Stars for every £10 wagered on Bingo games, or every £50 wagered on Instant games. The more stars you earn, the better your bonuses, including that 75% re-deposit bonus, and monthly cashback offers of between 1% and 7%, depending on your level within the VIP scheme. You even get extra stars on your birthday, as well as access to exclusive games and mystery prizes.
Spice Bingo Games
With six Bingo rooms offering 90 and 75 ball games, as well as plenty of jackpot games, there is lots of variety at Spice Bingo. The bingo games are complemented by an extensive selection of slots games, casino games Scratch cards and Instant games. The Bingo games are presented in a neat and logical manner, with your cards in the middle, the balls to one side, and chat room action to the other side, with side game suggestions along the top.
Some of the Spice Bingo slots games were new to me, so I had a go at a couple. I started by playing Hollywood Reels – a 5 reel, 9 payline game based on all things Tinseltown. With a betting range from £0.01 to £225 per spin, it is a game for all budgets. Hollywood Reels is a great looking game with symbols from classic movies like Dracula, Casablanca, and Indiana Jones, along with Clapperboards, reels of film and Walk of Fame stars.
The Dracula symbol acts as a wild symbol, meaning that it substitutes for others to help create winning combinations. In this case, it replaces the Casablanca and Indiana Jones symbols. The Walk of Fame star and film reels act as scatter symbols, awarding prizes when three or more appear on adjacent reels, while getting three or more of the clapperboard symbols on the reels will trigger a bonus game. In this game, you are shown several movie scenes, just click on each one to reveal prizes of between 1x and 5 times your bet amount. Keep clicking until ‘Collect’ is revealed and the prizes won so far are added together. If Collect is revealed on your first pick, it means you win all of the hidden prizes.
The next game I tried was Ramesses Riches. As you might suspect, Ramesses Riches is based on an ancient Egyptian theme. In this game, you get a fantastic bonus round when three or more Ankh symbols appear. In the bonus round you are awarded up to 20 free spins, with all prizes tripled in value should three more Ankh symbols appear during them. If the Ramesses wild symbol helps to create a win, the prize value is multiplied by six. When the wild symbol creates a win in the normal game, it still doubles the prize value.
This is a very popular game at several different online casinos. Spice Bingo have taken a clever approach to their slots games by bringing in the best games from several different developers, rather than tying themselves into using games from just one supplier.
How to Deposit & Cash Out at Spice Bingo
To pay funds into your Spice Bingo account, you can use Visa Debit, Visa Credit, MasterCard, Maestro and Solo cards, which is a fairly limited range of choices, but most players will have at least one of these available. Once you have paid in, the funds are credited to your new player account immediately. When depositing, Spice Bingo allows a minimum payment of £5 on your first deposit, and £10 on subsequent payments. Making withdrawals of winnings is just a matter of following the on screen instructions in the Spice Bingo banking section. Spice Bingo carries a minimum withdrawal amount of £30. The funds are paid back to the same card used to make the deposits, and will be processed in 48 hours. Due to the time it takes the card companies to process payments, it could be 7 – 14 business days before the funds are shown in your card account balance.
Spice Bingo want players to have a fun experience on their site, and have set up a team of customer support operators to handle any enquiries you may have. You can contact them via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can phone between 9.30am – 6pm on 0333-240-7288. When I phoned to check about deposit options, the operator was very helpful and friendly.
Overall Assessment of Spice Bingo
Spice Bingo is spiced with promotions as its name clearly suggests. This new bingo site (launched in January 2013) is ideal for bingo players looking for a small, yet growing community for playing online bingo games. They offer an attractive portfolio of side games and slots to complement their spread of bingo games smartly. They have taken the liberty of securing proper regulations via Jumpman’s AGGC & UKGC licences to ensure the rights of their players are well respected.
We believe that the 15 Network (with the help of Spice Bingo) is going to be the next breakout bingo network of the year. Overall, we expect great things from Spice Bingo and we are proud to award them a B+ Grade. Their portfolio is definitely worthy of such a mark and we could easily see their score improve when they introduce more deposit options.
