Balmy Bingo Review
Adding to some extra sunshine to February 2019 is Balmy Bingo. This new bingo site has opted to become the latest addition to the Jumpman 15 Network. It joins multiple other brands on this platform. These include Showreel, Bingzino, WTG Bingo and On Point. It offers players access to hundreds of slots plus a handful of bingo rooms. New players are also welcomed with a spin of the Mega Wheel where they can win up to 500 spins on Fluffy Favourites.
Introducing Balmy Bingo
Balmy Bingo has a beach theme. Bathed mostly in blue to represent the sky, the background boasts a tropical beach with palm trees. Overlaying this scene are the featured slots and the network's main welcome offer. According to the limited description on the site "Bingo is meant to be fun" but by playing at this site you can also make it Balmy. The design is fine although we're not totally sold on the name. Does anyone even refer to the weather as balmy anymore? There's no app required to play at the site. As is the case with all Jumpman brands, the site is designed to work perfectly on mobile, tablet and desktop.
Balmy Bingo Welcome Offer
The welcome offer for new players is the main incentive to sign-up with Balmy Bingo, although it should be noted the offer is slots orientated. As with other Jumpman brands a £10 deposit £10 generates an opportunity to spin the Mega Reel for the chance to win a bonus. Register, login and make a deposit to qualify for the bonus A spin of the Mega Reel can win you anything from nothing up to 500 spins on Fluffy Favourites. Terms apply and these include a x65 wagering requirement. Note that it is possible to not win on the bonus wheel.
Balmy Bingo Rooms
Login to the lobby area of Balmy Bingo to find a selection of bingo rooms and instant win games. In March 2020 Jumpman closed their own rooms such as Lucky Stars and Pay Day Jackpot. These have now been replaced by Pragmatic Play's bingo games. This means Lucky Rainbow can now offer 75 ball, 80 ball and 90 ball games in rooms such as Boombox, Stars N Stripes and The Jackpot Room. Tickets on average cost around 10p per game but there are cheaper games. These are now joined by Bingo Millions - a lottery meets bingo version of the game - although these are now only the instant versions of the game.
Balmy Bingo Slots
Slots players will find plenty of games to enjoy at Balmy Bingo. The site boasts over 600 different slots from various providers such as Red Tiger, Pragmatic Play, Blueprint Gaming and Playson. Top slots include Starburst, Rainbow Riches, Fluffy Favourites, Great Rhino, Irish Luck and Aloha Cluster Pays. Look out for regular tournaments and prize draws for slot players. These are usually ran by the slot providers although they're not often well publicised. Table games and live casino options are recent new additions.
Balmy Bingo Promotions
Promotions at Balmy Bingo are limited to those provided by Jumpman. These include a new CashDrop game for qualifying depositors, Happy Hour every Wednesday, and Winner Winner Chicken Dinner. Trophies can be won as part of a gamefication element of the site. Complete levels to earn additional spins of the Mega Reel. Free Spins of the Month is another regular promo and offers you the chance to win 20+ Free Spins with every qualifying fund. More recently Jumpman have started running monthly prize giveaways although the prize fund is shared by all 200+ members of the network. Balmy doesn't run any exclusives or have a social media presence.
The addition of Pragmatic Play's product now means players can enjoy a variety of bingo games and the rooms are mostly active. We like that pre-buy is now an option but the lack of chat makes game play quite sterile. Player depositing and withdrawal terms at Balmy Bingo are mostly reasonable, but the x65 wagering on the bonuses is quite hefty. However all players should be aware that all withdrawals now incur a £2.50 admin fee. There is a good selection of slots and this is the only real positive. However other Jumpman brands - especially those offering no deposit spins - may provide a better option should you choose to play on this platform.
