Red Bus Bingo
Redbus Bingo Review
Redbus Bingo launched onto the online bingo market in 2010 and from the very start proved to be a hit with players. This isn’t surprising really, as it is part of the Joy of Bingo network, which also looks after the brilliant Wink Bingo, Posh Bingo, Tasty Bingo and the new kid on the block Bingo Street. Now we know they say that two buses always come along at once; however, this isn’t the case with Redbus Bingo, as their online bingo site is certainly one of a kind. As soon as their homepage loads you are greeted with a well designed site that features a double-decker bus as the main focus of the pages; there are also some of London’s most iconic landmarks in the background (London Eye, Big Ben, and Tower Bridge etc). It is a bit like being on a tour bus being driven around London, but at the same time being treated to a whole host of fab bingo games along the way.
Now we don’t know about you, but as soon as the gang in the office touched down on the Redbus Bingo homepage, we were all like kids at Christmas and literally couldn’t wait to set up an online bingo account, so that we could start playing. To sign up you simply need to click on the ‘Join Now’ tab and you will be taken to a separate page to fill in their registration form – this literally only took us a couple of minutes to fill in, so you will be playing before you know it. We loved the fact that you don’t have to supply any payment details to create an account and also the helpful green tick system they have adopted, which tells you when you have successfully completed a section – When you play a lot of online bingo, it’s the little details like this that makes a fab bingo site even more fabulous. Once you have created an account you will automatically be taken to the ‘My Redbus’ part of the site. From here you can click to navigate around different parts of their site for example: click on ‘cashier’ to make a deposit at their site, or on ‘Play’ to access the lobby. In our opinion their lobby is the best designed part of their site, as it consists of a red double-decker bus appearing to drive along a London Road. The bus featured appears to have picked up a fair few passengers along its route and they are telling us about some of the amazing features on their site such as: Free Bingo, Pre-Buy Games, Penny Plus, Jackpots and Instant Games etc. Simply click on one of the speech bubbles and you will see a variety of different bingo rooms displayed on old fashioned bus tickets, which again keeps to the theme beautifully.
Free bingo Bus
Once a member of Redbus Bingo you will be able to try out their ‘Free Ride’ bingo room – and would you guess it is totally for free. This room is open between 8.00am and 1.00am each day and pays out all of its prizes in bonus funds. You can collect up to six free cards into each game; however as it is a free bingo room it is always quite busy. We had a couple of games early afternoon and there were around 70 players taking part in each game. The only thing we didn’t like about Redbus Bingo ‘Free Ride’ room was that you couldn’t chat to the other players in the room (we are all chatterboxes at Bingo Hideout). However, once we were in one of the pay to play bingo rooms we had a right laugh gossiping with the the other players and chat hosts. The shortcut buttons at the bottom of chat came in really handy (WTG, LOL, 1TG, 2TG, 3TG etc) and freed up a lot of time from typing.
Free Game – Big Jackpot Once you are a funded member of Redbus Bingo you will also be able to join in with their ‘Free1000’ bingo game, which plays at 9.15pm every day. This bingo room is always going to be jammed packed, as there is a REAL cash prize of £1,000 up for grabs. For example: on the day we were playing 1,330 players had already picked up cards into the game. Redbus Bingo have decided to go in a different direction to other online bingo sites with their deposit bonuses and will therefore reward their players with a ‘Redbus Bingo Scratch card’ when they make a first deposit at their site between £5 and £100. This scratch card will magically reveal a first time deposit bonus between 150% and 2,000%. Therefore, the minimum re-deposit you could receive is £7.50 with the maximum a breath-taking £2,000 ...... which deserves a big WOW!
Bingo Bonus offers
Of course that won’t be the end of your bingo bonuses at Redbus Bingo, as they also offer their members a 50% re-deposit bonus on any subsequent deposit of £10 or more. Make sure you also keep an eye out for the weekend mailer from Redbus, as it contains some special bonus codes that will offer you a bigger re-deposit bonus usually every weekend. Now once you are a funded member of their site it means that you will also be able to join in with all their online bingo, instant games and promotions and boy are there a lot. You can try your hand at walking away with a cash prize of up to £1 million in their ‘Big Ben Bonanza’ coverall game each Friday night, or play for a share of a £2,000 cash prize in their end of month ‘£2K Big Smoke’. What about if you have a query over something, will there be anyone to ask for help? Don’t worry at all, as Redbus Bingo have a 24 hour live help team to help point you in the right direction. So what are you waiting for? Pick up your tickets and hop on to Redbus Bingo for a couple of online bingo games.
