Giggle Bingo Review
In November 2014 the UK licensing laws changed, Giggle Bingo made the decision to no longer advertise their product to the UK player in September 2014. For this reason we have chosen to redirect our players to another brand on the Microgaming software, Betway Bingo. The details below will no longer be updated and are for information purposes only.
When you land on the homepage of Giggle Bingo your greeted by two rather friendly "bingo balls", at least we think that is what they are. The colour scheme looks to attract both genders unlike many brands today we seem to focus the attention on the fairer sex. You can see exactly what the current welcome offers are for new players in a flash scrolling image that takes up the bulk of the home page alongside other features from the brand in the scrolling box. There is also a list of the current open rooms that shows the time until the next game, room name, the game in play, the pot prize (note these are in varying currencies), the number of players in the room and the current ticket prize (again in varying currencies).
Registration to Giggle Bingo is quite straightforward with the usual information required to create your account; a username, real name, date of birth and address along with things like your gender and phone number. Once registration is complete the bingo lobby takes a couple of seconds to load. If the site is offering a no deposit required welcome bonus at the time you sign up for an account then it is worth noting that this is not credited to your account until you enter a bingo room. There are a number of rooms available from the lobby and each offers either 75 ball or 90 ball. There are different currencies used in the rooms; either pounds, dollars or euros.
Entering a room is a little cumbersome, they tend to take quite a while to load but once in the room you’ll find the layout is pretty standard. To the left of your screen is the bingo chat room with your account balances above and side games below. To the right of your screen are the bingo tickets with the game information above, including the number of players, ticket price and the prizes for the game.
Purchasing for games is pretty simple with a couple of options to buy tickets. You can select a number of strips using the quick buy option or you can simply click the tickets that you wish to purchase. Please note that if you are using a no deposit required welcome bonus you may not be able to buy tickets in all the rooms available although this is not indicated from the lobby, simply something you find out when you try to purchase tickets with your bonus funds – slightly irritating because it is not clear so you spend time waiting for a room to load only to find that you aren’t allowed to play in that room – why Giggle Bingo don’t restrict access to the non-depositing players like other brands we don’t know!
You may find yourself very quickly reaching for the mute button at Giggle Bingo because whilst the "chat sounds" are quite a unique feature, they soon become VERY irritating especially when bingo is called and you keep hearing "Well Done" over and over again.
Promotions are a little dull at Giggle Bingo in comparison with many other brands available online today and their weekly promotions especially seem a little pointless. Each week they give away masses of bonus funds but predominantly to the players who win bingo – what’s the point in that? Bonus funds should be used to keep a player at your site, not reward ones who have already won cash!
If you like the Microgaming sites then the chances are that you’ll love Giggle Bingo but it isn’t a site that will make our top ten anytime soon.
No deposit required welcome bonus, trusted software and network
Dull promotions, irritating chat sounds, not obvious which rooms are for funded players only, rooms take time to load, high wagering requirements, high minimum withdrawal amount.

Minimum Deposit And Withdrawal Requirements
The minimum deposit amount at Giggle Bingo is £10. The minimum withdrawal amount is not stated in the Terms and Conditions which is a really poor show on this sites part. We tried to contact Live Help and after several attempts were told that the minimum withdrawal amount from this brand is £50! Considering the wagering requirements it’s likely to be VERY hard to actually withdraw your money from Giggle Bingo. Read more on the link below:
Debit and Credit Cards, Ukash, Neteller, Moneybookers, PaySafe Card, Entropay, EcoCard, Click and Buy, Click2Pay and a few other options.
Bingo Software / Network
