The truth is that it’s hard to know exactly what to say about Silk Bingo. Other bingo sites have made their name by concentrating on a particular aspect of the game. Play at Tombola and you can win massive cash prizes. Foxy Bingo is about being part of a huge, fun bingo community. Virgin Bingo is straight forward and hype-free whilst JackpotJoy has is the opposite with a huge range of games to play. And if you want the ‘Home of Free Bingo’ then go to Costa Bingo.
But what makes Silk Bingo stand out? Nothing especially like the other sites mentioned – but what they do is do everything really well. So if you’re looking for a bingo site with a good range of games and high potential prizes which is both fun and easy to play then this could be for you. Add in the fact that there are daily free bingo games and you should see that this site has something for every player out there.
What is the range of games like?
Not massive – but there’s a reasonable number of both 75 ball and 90 ball bingo playing continuously. These start at just 1p a ticket and prizes can be as high as 10s of thousands of pounds. So there’s something for every bingo player regardless of how much they are willing to stake and play for.
There is however quite a range of other games such as slots and scratch cards – over 120 in fact. All of which can be played at the same time as you are playing bingo.
What offers do I get from Silk Bingo?
You can play free bingo games every day of the week for some decent cash prizes. The welcome offer is detailed below but for those players who stick with the site – and we recommend that you do – there is a continuous 50% reload bonus. So for every deposit you make they will times it by 1.5 – very few bingo sites offer this except on second or third deposits only. Take advantage of it!
The loyalty scheme is interesting – not bad. Just interesting. The loyalty points earned in various ways are called GPs. We have no idea why or what it stand for! ‘Something’ Points we’re assuming? Every 1000 GPs earned can be traded for £1 worth of bingo tickets which isn’t bad when you consider that you can earn 2000 just by liking Silk Bingo on Facebook! Other ways of earning them include winning games, buying tickets and completing your profile.
The VIP scheme is also worth taking a close look at. The more you deposit the higher up the VIP levels you climb. As you climb you unlock various rewards. These include:-
- Increasing levels of cashback up to £1000 / month.
- Increasing levels of free monthly jackpot prizes – up to £45,000 !
- Increased birthday bonus up to 160%
- Free gifts, event tickets and holiday gifts.
- Entry to cash and prize tournaments.
All in all a very nice package of offers, promotions and freebies.
Any good for bingo newbies?
There’s a very nice welcome bonus of 300% at the moment. But what makes Silk Bingo particularly attractive to newbies is the ease of both play and navigation. Its so easy to find your way around the site and purchase tickets.
Additionally there’s a free bingo room for newbies only which can be played on a no deposit basis for four full days from registration.
Can I play Silk Bingo on my phone?
No – not at this time.
Are there any chat rooms?
Of course – and like the rest of the site they are easy to understand and use even if you’d never played or chatted before. You can choose which chat room you would like to enter (if any) regardless of the bingo room you are playing in. Chat Moderators are always there to help where possible.
What are the banking options?
As well as being a PayPal bingo site you can also use the usual options of Visa Debit, Credit and Electron cards plus MasterCard. Also Switch / Solo card, Paysafe card, Entropay, Neteller and Ukash.
How’s the customer support?
Well we’re not convinced that a promise to reply to an email within 36 hours is up to much. But when there is a 24 hour free phone help line available this becomes slightly irrelevant. It is also stressed on the site that the Chat Moderators are there to help in any way they can if required.
Silk Bingo is GamCare certified which is always a good indication that a site is a professional one and aware of its responsibilities towards its customers. The ‘responsible gambling’ policy is quite comprehensive and includes all the usual and expected self exclusion / take a break facilities.
How do I sign up?
Just follow this link where you can register. Don’t forget that Silk Bingo is one of the few no deposit bingo sites around so you can have a good look around, play and get the feel of the site before you make an actual deposit. And of course when you do you’ll get a nice welcome bonus to play with too.
