Smooth Bingo Review
Smooth Bingo opened its virtual doors in the summer of 2014 bringing a selection of bingo variants and some great instant games using software provided by Cozy Games. The brand offer some big no deposit bonuses and there are plenty of depositing options with big bonuses and reloads so we headed over to see if it was as smooth as they promise!
When you hit the Smooth Bingo homepage it’s cartoon fruit and fairly simple graphics, not really as smooth as velvet, but without too many rough edges either. Registration to the site takes just 3 minutes or so, pop a few of your personal details in, enter a depositing method for verification purposes and you’ll receive a no deposit bonus. This site is part of the Live Bingo Network and it’s worth noting that if you’re already signed up at any other site on the network, registration might be an issue and you may not receive your no-deposit bonus or welcome email.
Providing you sign up without any issues, the first place to head to is the lobby and here you’ll find all the bingo rooms on offer in a simple list. There are more bingo variants than you can shake your smoothie straw at so you will be spoiled for choice! If you like the traditional 90-ball and US 75-ball they’re here in abundance with lesser known favourites such as 80-ball and 30-ball bingo. There are a fair few people on site during our mid-afternoon visit, almost a thousand and while they’re evenly spread throughout the rooms and games, it’s the 90-ball rooms that are really bustling! We head into Bingo 90 first and purchase our tickets for the next game.
The bingo client is fairly well laid out with different parts of the screen given over to the game, ticket purchasing and chat, but it’s quite busy and feels quite crowded. The bingo rooms are heaving, and chat isn’t so much community feel, but rather hosts that don’t seem to write English very well and a massive overuse of smileys in the chat room. Sadly unlike other sites you can’t opt out of chat here at Smooth Bingo, and so it is a case of tuning it out if you find it as annoying as we do. That aside, there’s a good selection of multi-price tickets, lots of BOGOF offers and pot sizes well worth winning!
The other tabs from the lobby screen take you to instant wins, slots and casino games and on the games side of things there’s plenty to play with hundreds of games on offer, all with games to suit all budgets and some big jackpots too!
There are promotions on offer around the clock at Smooth Bingo but many of them are based around wagering and big spending. The most tempting promotional aspect of the entire site is big bonuses on every deposit!
Smooth Bingo doesn’t quite go down like a banana smoothie, but it’s ok and offers a perfectly playable bingo interface. The jackpots are quite good, the terms and conditions could do with clarifying, and the software could be better, it’s budget bingo and you get what you pay for!

Many bingo variants, big deposit bonuses.
