Bucky Bingo Review – Generous Welcome and Memorable Stay

This is one of the few online gambling operators who has over 40 years of experience in the UK under their belt (obviously land based first, the internet isn’t that old, hey!). You can see the experience reflected in the games, promotions and general spirit of professionalism on Bucky Bingo. When you sign up, you are welcomed with a huge deposit bonus and the chance to play free bingo.

There is a wide selection if games, over 100 in fact – if you love to spin and win, you could grab yourself some huge amounts of cash here. But before you head there to try it all for yourself and enjoy the big promotions with surprises almost every day of the week plus a great VIP club for exclusive benefits, give me a minute or ten and let’s explore the site and its features together in this review.

What Games are There on Offer?

You have two different types of bingo to choose from across 8 different bingo rooms here. There are seven 90 ball rooms and just a single 75 ball one – and this isn’t open all day. Pick from the following titles The Charm, BB’s Free, Rainbow Riches Bingo, Lucky Number, Deal or no Deal, Big Money, The Buckingham and the Party Room, that is the 75 ball room, open on a Thursday only. On top of that, you have daily free bingo, BOGOF and penny games, bargains and much more – there is something for every bingo lover, regardless of your budget or level of expertise. There are also regular chat quizzes with prizes to give you extra chances to win. Tickets for all funded games can be purchased for between 5p and £1. The Rainbow Riches room (themed after the popular slot) is the most popular to play in. It combines the bingo experience with the popular online slot game with the same title. See some visuals below.

When you press the ‘Games’ tab, you are given the choice of over a 100 different options to play. You can choose from slots, scratchcards, casino games and instants. Some of the top games featured include Adventures in Wonderland, Mafia Millions, Rich Treats, Pirate Plunder, Dynamite Digger, The X Factor Judges Jackpot, Clover Rollover, Bouncy Balls, Rainbow Riches, Fluffy Favourites, Ladies Leisure, Arctic Adventure amongst others.

What About Mobile Play?

The great news is that you can access all of the games on the go via your mobile or tablet. If you have an iOS device you can head to the App Store and search for Bucky Bingo.

Before you can play, you have to deposit – remember that your first deposit gets a whopping 500% bonus. You will need to add a valid payment method to your account in order to deposit funds with ease. You can access withdrawals too, so if you’re lucky enough to win, you can request a withdrawal when you’re out and about.


You can access the whole range of bingo on the mobile site. Enjoy 90 ball and 75 ball games. Ticket prices, prizes and promotions remain exactly the same. The choice of instants has been scaled down but you still get to play a decent number of games. The most popular titles, such as Rainbow Riches, are available to be played.

Company Information and Awards

The operator first opened in the 1970’s as a land based hall called Buckingham Bingo. Many years later – in 2005, the company was sold to Alchemy Partners for £90m. In 2007 they decided to enter the world of online bingo and have been offering top quality gaming ever since. 2010 saw the closure of their last land based bingo hall and in 2011, their online division was given a major makeover and got renamed to Bucky Bingo. In 2015, Bucky Bingo was a finalist in the Which Bingo awards and in 2016 they won ‘Best Boutique Site’ in the BingoPort Awards. Way to go! The company holds a license and is regulated by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission.

What I Thought of This Platform

I have visited the site prior to its makeover so I was very pleasantly surprised with the new, modern design and smooth action. When you land here, the first thing you notice is the fact they won an award in the 2016 BingoPort awards, which is quite an achievement considering the vicious competition. Registration is quite simple and quick and once done, you’ll have to choose a chat name. This is the nickname that will represent you in the bingo rooms amongst all roomies, so think twice. The theme is very light and relaxing, the community – lively and chatty and very colourful in terms of players’ origins. To put it shortly – I had good fun and will recommend it to anyone.

Some Quick Questions

Why do you need my card details?

This is purely for security reasons – for everyone’s benefit the site admins need to confirm you are who you say you are and are of legal age. Also, your country of origin has to be a destination where it is legal to play. So to avoid any future disappointments and misunderstandings, here they have adopted the practice of checking this on step one. If you wish to make speedy withdrawals as well, you are best passing any verifications early after signing up as they will be required before you can withdraw too.

What does the £360K weekend have to offer?

This promotion runs for three days on the last weekend of every month here at Bucky. There are new money-spinning games added every day for multiple chances to win big. Those take place in the ‘Big Money’ room, the ‘Party’ room and the ‘Rainbow Riches’ one. The promotion begins every day at 6pm and is available to both mobile and web players. Friday and Saturday evenings hold guaranteed cash prizes of £265,000. Sunday evening has £95,000 guaranteed. You can pre-buy tickets from the games lobby so you don’t have to be in the room to play. These Bingo Linx games are played within the Virtue Fusion Bingo Network, giving you even bigger prize pools.
