The Party brand covers plenty of ground: They offer Party Casino, Party Poker and Foxy Bingo as well as Party Bingo, so if you enjoy online gaming in any capacity you’re bound to have heard of them. Party Bingo, along with its sister sites, is owned by the strangely-titled Bwin. Party Digital Entertainment Plc, themselves the product of a merger of Bwin Entertainment and PartyGaming in March 2011.
The whole brand retains a somewhat maverick feel to it: The wacky, off-key design and font on the sites stands for fun rather than serious gaming, and for a large outfit covering all types of gaming including sports betting they’re unusual in their choice of game providers: The usual Playtech and Microgaming offerings are dropped here in favour of slots from IGT and Bwin’s in-house development team.
Whilst bingo sites generally have a lower number of variables to play with than slots sites, Party have still managed to inject a fun, Friday night out feeling into Party Bingo that reflects the whole brand well without seeming downmarket in any way, for which every credit has to be given. Critics could easily be forgiven for think that one brand owning both Party Bingo and Foxy Bingo is a mistake, though Foxy, with its daytime TV sponsorship and brassy, Blackpool hen night feel does seem to fill a different segment, making Party Bingo a fun, yet far less blingy alternative.
Bingo-wise you’ll find 90 and 75 ball games on offer, both in progressive jackpot form if required. There’s also team bingo with over £1,000 in prizes paid out monthly, and some very community-orientated chat games: These involve number and quiz games, for example selecting a double-digit number that’s a multiple of eleven, and shouting ‘twin’ when one and both digits are called.
The extra features compensate for the lack of 80 and 30 ball bingo, though Party are not alone in this area as even some of the larger networks have yet to introduce the speedier games. All things considered, it’s fair to say that Party offers slightly more than most other bingo sites.
Bwin. Party has two joint CEOs in the form of Norbert Teufelberger and Jim Ryan, and the company, whilst headquartered in Gibraltar, is regulated and licenced in multiple additional territories including Alderney, France, Denmark and Italy.
In line with Party Casino, Party Bingo are big on bonuses: The welcome incentive is an impressive £30 and there’s a first 300% deposit bonus of up to £150 along with the expected loyalty and referral schemes. There are four or five other promos as well, offering you free cards, reduced ticket prices or larger prizes than usual. Generally, the promos are nothing out of the ordinary, save for the size of the up-front free cash and welcome bonus, which manage to lift the whole package above most others.
Players can deposit at Party Bingo with Visa (debit or credit), Mastercard, Skrill (Moneybookers), Neteller, Maestro, Solo, Switch, UKash and half a dozen or so prepaid cards. Withdrawals follow a fairly standard procedure, with credit/debit card movements taking 3-5 working days, and the quickest method being Neteller for a cashout within less than 24 hours.
