Launched in 2010 as an offshoot of the Broadway Gaming company, Butlers Bingo has a mission statement, bringing its players ‘the best online bingo on a silver platter.’ It’s a nod to their name of course, but the service and ease with which gamers can get stuck into their favourite games is exceptional.
As if to prove the Butler’s desire for complete customer satisfaction, the brand has picked up two prestigious awards in recent times: the 'WhichBingo Awards Winner' in 2016 and a triumph at the 'BingoPort Players' Choice Awards'. Those rave reviews are testament to Butlers Bingo’s approach to online bingo gaming.
Butlers utilises its own proprietary software for its bingo games and has partnered with Microgaming to power its casino channel on both desktop and mobile. Microgaming is widely regarded as one of the finest names in online casino gaming, so players have complete peace of mind in knowing that their experience will be super smooth and enjoyable.
Broadway has also put in the hard yards to ensure that its bingo games come up to scratch as well. All of the available games can be played on desktop and mobile devices, with the option to play through your browser – unfortunately no dedicated app is currently available.
There is a reassuring simplicity to the Butlers Bingo website and what this shows is that it isn't here to try and dazzle you with shiny animations and blinding bonuses. The brand is all about simple bingo gaming and the site is the perfect platform to achieve that.
It really isn’t as flashy as some bingo sites, so it depends upon your personal preference whether you see that as a good thing or not. The graphics featuring the Butler and his trusty sidekick, Astrid, are a nice touch.
The straightforward menu system leads players exactly where they need to go and while it is disappointing not to see a lobby area, Butlers does at least compensate by offering a selection of chat games.
Butlers offers both 75-Ball and 90-Ball bingo variants, which feature individual prizes per game plus the huge progressive jackpots that Microgaming has become renowned for. There is a selection of chat games to enjoy as well; this is a brand that favours traditional bingo, rather than the themed games that are so readily available in 2017.
While you are waiting for your next game to start you can always try something from the Butlers range of casino games. It's home to a huge library of slot games – both new-fangled video versions and the classic fruit machine style – as well as those linked to its own progressive jackpots; another way to win a life-changing sum of money!
For that Las Vegas buzz, players can also try their hand at blackjack, roulette, a number of poker variants and instant win scratchcards.
Here’s where Butlers Bingo lets itself down somewhat: it doesn't have a permanent lobby facility on the site. Instead, chat rooms will pop up for a couple of hours at a time, linked to the chat games previously mentioned.
But there isn’t a space for social players to hang out, chat and swap tips, which seems like a huge opportunity lost for a bingo site that is well populated with gamers.
This is where Butlers really earns its corn. A fantastic promotions platform is headlined by new promos and bonuses each and every day; these are easily viewable from the dedicated calendar. The best place to start is always at the beginning and Butlers has got new players’ best interests at heart with a whopping 250% sign-up bonus up to £100. Now that’s a warm welcome!
There’s lot more to applaud here, including the loyalty programme, which enables players to turn points into cold hard cash. There are monthly reload bonuses, prize draws, cash back promos and free-entry tournaments; there’s so much for players to look forward to at Butlers. For anybody considering themselves a VIP, an exclusive range of bonuses and promos await.
There are so many positives going for Butlers and only a tiny number of negatives. One of the latter camp has to be the withdrawal processing times, which stand at a lengthy seven days, far longer than the industry norm. Also, gamers can only make one withdrawal per week.
But what is very likeable indeed about Butlers is that its wagering requirements on all bonus funds is just 5x – extremely generous! Customer support is available throughout the day (and into the night) via the live chat function or email.
It might not be the best looking in town, but Butlers Bingo sure knows how to give players a good time. A comprehensive range of bingo and casino games intertwine in an easy-to-use website that wears its simplicity like a badge. And there’s nothing wrong with that.
