Beacon Bingo Review

On the 31st May 2015 the affiliate program used to promote Beacon Bingo closed and we were advised to ‘remove all Beacon / Beaky Bingo offers and banners from your site‘. For this reason we have directed our players to another brand who offers the same gaming experience but with different promotions and bonus offers.

Beacon Bingohas been a name familiar to land based bingo players for many years with the first Beacon Bingo Club opening in 1966 but did you know that you can also enjoy all the fun of Beacon Bingo at their online bingo site too. Beacon Bingo is powered by the all-singing, all-dancing Virtue Fusion bingo software and offers everything you might expect from one of the biggest names in online bingo.

Until very recently, when you logged onto Beacon Bingo you were welcomed by the ‘bingo managers’ in a very invasive and loud video welcome. We can only think the brand has had more negative feedback on this than we can offer, because it’s been replaced (hooray!), though you can still find that page under the ‘bingo demo’ tab. Now the homepage contains links to different parts of site, plus a link to Beacon Radio so you can listen while you play.

Registration at Beacon Bingo is easy, a few simple registration details and you’re ready to fund your online bingo account. There’s no free, no deposit cash at Beacon Bingo but you can claim a 100% deposit bonus the moment you make your first deposit.

Beacon Bingo is very much geared towards bingo hall players making that first step to the internet and as such, is perfect for new online bingo player, there’s a bingo demo which explains all the rules and apart from the constant voiceovers, the site is user-friendly and very geared towards ease of play.

As with all Virtue Fusion Bingo sites, the selection of games at Beacon Bingo is overwhelming. Play traditional 90 ball, American 75 ball or bang up to date 80 ball with all the usual Virtue Fusion side games. The software is a winner by us but while the bingo site itself is a great help to brand new bingo players, it does get a little tedious if you already know the ropes

Pros

Friendly chat hosts, Virtue Fusion Bingo software, variation on games, a trusted name in bingo, perfect for bingo players new to the internet.

Cons

Too much noise, all the voiceovers get terribly annoying by the second time you hit the homepage, great bingo games but there are better Virtue Fusion sites available.

Lot of problems all day on the site, mainly winnings not getting paid but then I accepted a bonus offer of £10 and lost £50 I had in my bonus funds. Was so shocked I rang customer services who were very forceful and quite rude. The phone was disconnected twice while I attempted to explain that no pop up told me I would have to lose £50 to gain £10. They would not reverse this inspire of the fact I told them that the pop up did not say I would forfeit the bonus I had for a much lesser bonus.

I was shocked they would not reverse this given the amount of money it cost me and was a total gain for them. I closed my account and told them this was a big con and no one in their right mind would give £50 for £10 ! I have taken their complaints address to make a formal complaint. Never had to do this before with any Bingo site and never had he amount of problems I had. Not surprisingly they were keen to close my account rather than resolve the issue.

I do not recommend this Bingo site due to the level of problems I had while playing on it.
