Chances are you either heard of or played at Umbingo: the vibrant tropical-themed bingo site with more than just bingo rooms. If you’ve not, you’ll probably not know about the huge change they underwent recently and it’s a corker.
Ditching the popular Dragonfish software (via the much-loved Real Bingo Network) in favour of the Jumpman Gaming brand, has led to a massive change in how the way things are run. Starting with the welcome bonus.
Forget signing up to a bankroll boosting bonus with a no strings attached promise – all that wager-free stuff (that we loved by the way!) has been given the elbow! Now, you’ll get to spin the mega wheel on your first £20 deposit, where you’ll have the ‘chance’ to win as many as 500 bonus spins.
That’s right dabbers, you only get a ‘chance’ to win spins as this is not a guaranteed welcome offer. There are nine segments on the wheel; 7 winning spins, one to try again and one to lose, so chances are you’re going to land some spins.
Wagering requirements of 0% have now been ramped up to 65x. Oh, and there’s a win cap on those bonus spins; £8 per 10 spins. Here’s an example of Umbingo’s ‘lavish’ offer; Say you win just £20 from that welcome bonus; you will need to play this through 65x – that’s £1,300 before being able to make a withdrawal!
Now for the positives. There bingo rooms are powered by Pragmatic Play software, the same software that powers industry leading casino games; the howling Wolf God sensation, the egg-sellent Great Chicken Escape and free-spirited Mustang Gold are just a few to mention.
What you have now is more than one bingo rom dedicated to awarded eye-watering prizes, so instead of waiting until the 10th of the month (before all the changes to effect) to win a share of £10K, you can now win a share of £1.5m multiple times a week. Plus, there is a £10m bingo room!
Slots – now you’ll find an unbeatable selection of online slots…
…live casino games and progressive jackpot games that could see you winning multiple millions from the lowest of stakes.
Any other offers? There are more promotions running than ever before with happy hours designed to give you more playing power, daily cashback, VIP perk, a trophy system where you complete fun tasks to level up for more bonus spins and you could even bag yourself a free takeaway once a month!
There are pros and cons to the change, pros being more choice, more jackpots, more games, fewer players in the rooms and this means me chances to win and more bingo bonuses. The cons include customer support being via email, wagering requirements are way too high, win caps on spins and a fee of £2.50 on every withdrawal you make.Kayleigh39
