Heart Bingo Review
Heart Bingo has now relaunched on the Pragmatic Play platform having moved from Gamesys to working with BetVictor. The site originally launched as Hbingo during the brand's transition, but it's now all systems go for a new look Heart. We've said a few times that 2021 is the year for platform moves and this further cements that view. So what does the new Heart Bingo offer in it's new home? Well you'll find a bunch of 75, 80 and 90 ball rooms plus Pragmatic's much hyped Bingo Blast. In addition there are some unique features including Heart Bonanza Bingo and the launch oof the Reels Room!
Introducing Heart Bingo
As is standard nowawadays Heart Bingo is a simple but stylish looking site. The familiar red of Heart is evident within the navigation whilst the bulk of the homepage is dominated by the welcome offer. Olly Murs is even on hand to welcome you! Hot picks, featured bingo rooms, top slots and live game shows complete the homepage. It looks great on mobile, tablet and desktop - no app is required. In our view Heart Bingo actually looks a better prospect than Betvictor Bingo. The latter had the issue of being integrated into an already established design whilst Hbingo is basically a new brand. In our view there's little difference between the design of this new site and the established Heart Bingo brand on Gamesys - and that should help breed familiarity as player's discover the new set-up.
Heart Bingo Welcome Bonus
New players to Heart Bingo are offered a bonus package after making an initial deposit and wagering. Register, login, opt-in, deposit and spend at least £10 to receive 500 free bingo tickets and 25 free spins. The tickets can only be used in the exclusive Heart Bonanza Room whilst the spins are available for the Heart Bonanza Slot game. Any wins from the tickets or spins are paid as cash and therefore no wagering terms apply. Note that the Heart Bonanza room is free to play for 14 days after registration plus there's also a newbie room which is accessible for five days after the first wager of 1p or more. See promotions for more info plus terms. As far as we're aware if you've already joined Betvictor Bingo then you can still claim this offer (unlike Hbingo).
Heart Bingo Rooms
There are a number of different rooms at Heart Bingo offering 30, 75, 80 and 90 ball games. The main rooms are Candy Hearts, Heart & Soul, Dance Floor and Fun Fest. Note that most of these rooms are shared with other brands that use the Pragmatic Play product. These are joined by the speedy Bingo Blast game. One thing we hoped for with the relaunch is some exclusives and Heart have delivered. Heart Bonanza is their exclusive room whilst Release The Kraken Reels room is the much awaited play bingo to win slot spins room that has been promised by Pragmatic. Also joining this mix of bingo fun is the new Drop Pots room which gives players the chance to win a Mini, Midi and Maxi jackpot daily.
Heart Bingo Slots
As you'd expect slots do form part of the relaunched site's makeup. All the usual favourites are available including Starburst, Fishin Frenzy, Rainbow Riches and Fluffy Favourites. These are joined by Daily Drop Jackpots, Megaways and Slingo games. There are also exclusives - something Heart didn't have in it's previous life! Players can now try Heart Bonanza, Bubble Wild, Olly Mur's Big Box Bonus and Heart Slingo. Click on the casino tab to enjoy live game shows such as Mega Ball, Monopoly Live, Crazy Time and the latest addition Cash Or Crash. Various table games including blackjack and roulette complete the roster.
Heart Bingo Promotions
One thing we really liked about Heart Bingo is the number of big prize promotions they ran. We're hoping this continues and the signs are promising! For launch much of the focus is on re-engaging with players so there's the big welcome offer and free bingo games. Beyond that though the main excitement is a £10,000 Hearties Game which offers a £5000 winners pot and £5000 community pot. However the latter isn't an exclusive and in fact forms part of the network offering. It'll be interesting to see whether Heart will return to the days of offering big prizes as it used to do on Gamesys.
2021 is most certainly the year of platform changes and Heart moving to Pragmatic Play is up there with Gala switching to Entain. Now Gala's move hasn't gone down well with players and we'd expect a similar reaction here. Players will find a considerable difference in the bingo product when compared to that on Gamesys. And despite multiple big name brands and platforms using Pragmatic Play it's still not quite there in our view. However there are some promising signs from the new site - free bingo, exclusive games, Olly Murs etc are a good start. If all goes to plan then we'd expect Heart to rapidly become Pragmatic Play's flagship brand
