Don a pair of oversized shades, slip on some platform shoes and get ready to groove like a 70s disco diva on Fever Bingo’s proverbial dancefloor. Going live in 2016 and part of the Jumpman Gaming network, Fever Bingo is a quirky site with a lot of character. Will it get you moving like John Travolta? In some respects, yes. In other respects, not so much. To show you what we mean, let’s dance through our Fever Bingo review!
Fever Bingo is designed to be flexible. Because the operator doesn’t offer a dedicated mobile app, the software has been designed to work on all platforms. This means you can ante-up on any device with any sized screen. Beyond its ability to scale up and down as required, the platform is secured by SSL-encrypted software and all games are certified as fair by SQS.
Before you start your Fever Bingo journey, the software asks if you’d like to receive push notifications. Although this isn’t unique to Fever Bingo, it's a nice little touch and an example of how the site doesn’t want you to miss a beat. Although you can reject the notifications, they are a nice way of staying up to date with the latest games, upgrades and bonuses at Fever.
Beyond its desire to keep you informed at all times, this site definitely sits on the quirky side of the spectrum. This means you’ll find plenty of bright colours, bold boxouts and interesting characters as you peruse the site. This keeps everything feeling fun and fresh. What it doesn’t do, however, is complicate things.
Bingo sites that try to be 'wacky' are often hard to navigate. This isn’t the case at Fever. The gaming grid is easy to read and the one-touch navigate tabs allow you to filter games by name, type, hot picks and your favourites. All of this results in an engaging experience that doesn’t leave you lost in a matrix of craziness.
If there’s one area where Bingo Fever falls down, it’s bingo. Despite being a bingo site, the selection of games isn’t huge. During our Bingo Fever review, we found five different rooms to choose from. Unfortunately, the games didn’t appear to be running on a daily basis. Instead, they were scheduled for various points throughout the month. Honestly, that’s not ideal.
However, if you’re prepared to wait, there are 75- and 90-ball games available for between £0.01 and £0.05 per ticket. Additionally, there’s a selection of free and VIP games to choose from, as well as a “Pay Day Jackpot” game with a £1,000 prizepool.
For those that don’t mind registering for games in advance, Fever Bingo offers an array of casino games to fill in the gaps. Slots dominate and you’ll find many of the industry’s top titles when you login. However, alongside the likes of Starburst and Rainbow Riches, you’ll also find a handful of blackjack and roulette options available in free play and real money modes.
Fever Bingo is part of the Jumpman Gaming network, which means it’s part of a larger community. However, beyond that, there isn’t the much in the way of onsite interaction. Bingo games have an internal chat box, but other than this you won’t find many other ways to socialise with your peers.
Being part of the Jumpman network means that Fever Bingo has a slightly different approach to promotions. For example, the welcome bonus isn’t fixed. In other words, you won’t receive X when you deposit Y. What you will get, however, is 20 free spins when you create your first account You will get the spins straight away, without having to make a deposit first.
The only downside is that the playthrough on anything you win is 65X. That’s above the industry average and something casual players may struggle with. The counter to this is that you get to spin the wheel for free without making any deposits or bets.
For something a little more certain, Bingo Fever allows you to get something back each time you play. Firstly, the daily cashback deal is your chance to collect between 1% and 10% of your daily spend back if you don’t hit a big win. On top of that, the VIP scheme is your chance to earn an increasing amount of cashback, free spins and birthday treats depending on where you rank (five tiers).
All Fever Bingo players have a personal inbox, which is a nice way to keep you abreast of any updates relevant to you and the site in general. Beyond that, you can send an email or speak to the team via an internal messaging system. The only issue here is that the working hours are between 2pm and 6pm, Monday-Friday.
In terms of payments, things are better. Visa, MasterCard, PayPal and Paysafecard are all a standard. However, the option that stands out is pay by mobile. By inputting nothing more than your phone number, you can charge small deposits to your mobile phone bill (or deduct it from your pay as you go credit). This is one the latest ways to pay and, aside from being convenient, it’s highly secure, which is nice to see.

£10 Min - 30 Max
There are clearly some holes in the Fever Bingo package. The lack of bingo games and support options leaves a lot to be desired. However, pay by mobile deposit options, plenty of slots and some clever promotions do help to offset these issues. Overall, if you’re looking for a fun, secure and entertaining place to play, it’s worth strutting your stuff across Fever Bingo’s dancefloor.
