Britain Play offers red, white and blue bingo at a site the Brit bingo fans will adore. Bingo fans who enjoy mixing up their online bingo site with slots will adore this site too, as it has over 1,000 slots available, including Starburst and all of Eyecon’s Fluffy Favourites slots. Britain Play is serious about responsible gambling too, with player-defined deposit limits and self-exclusion periods.
You can ramp up the rewards with the site’s unique trophies VIP scheme that awards you free spins for your bingo and slotting achievements. All this is enclosed within a single site that is very easy to use and find your way around, on both desktop and mobile.
Britain Play is operated by Jumpman Gaming and licensed for people in Britain by the UK Gambling Commission, and around the rest of the world by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission.

The welcome bonus at Britain Play is not specifically tied to any bingo options, but as you can use the bonus cash on any options at the site it is one that is worth claiming. This is not a bonus cash type of deal, but really one that you’ll need a little bit of good fortune to get the most out of.
The T&Cs ought to be a bit clearer, but there exists the possibility of you obtaining your bonus for free (it is not clear though how this is achieved).
When you sign up for Britain Play you will receive a free spin on the Mega Reel. The reel contains a number of decent prizes, including the top bonus of 500 free spins on Starburst. There are spins too on Fluffy Favourites and even a £10 Amazon voucher (which is emailed to you) is a prize option.
Any winnings from your free spins need to be wagered 65 times over before you are able to cash them out. You can also only cash out to a maximum of £250, and also to a maximum of the total of lifetime deposits you have made at this site.
There are other bonuses offered by Britain Play, all of which are subject to the usual kind of wagering expectations. Tied in with the site’s VIP scheme, which we will explore later, is the chance of winning more free spins on two other slots, Bronco Spirit and Wild Wild Riches. These are available for every five ‘trophies’ collected via the ‘Trophies Mega Reel’.
You also have the chance to win free spins every month, usually either on the slot Blue Wizard or Book of Kings. Every qualifying deposit you make in excess of £20 will generate you the chance of winning free spins.
If you are a fan of the Eyecon slot ‘Fluffy Favourites’ or any of its sequels, then there is good news for you here. If you play any ‘Fluffy’ slot between 7PM and 10PM on any given Friday then you could win a share of a £250 prize pot. There are four ‘Fluffy’ games at Britain Play in total, so you can vary your fluffiness if you so desire.
Britain Play certainly likes to keep things fresh when it comes to bonuses and promotions, and there is often something new for you to enjoy. Make sure, once you have completed your sign up at the site, that you click on the ‘Promotions’ tab for all the latest giveaway goodness.
There are five bingo rooms in total at Britain Play: Boombox (80-ball bingo), The Jackpot Room (90-ball bingo), I Love Bingo (75-ball bingo), Instant Bingo and My Bingo Hall. As you can see, all three main forms of bingo are covered at this site, so no matter your bingo preference there will be something to keep you entertained. There is though, no ‘speciality’ bingo available, such as super-speedy 30-ball bingo or 5-line bingo as you might find at other sites.
The bingo software used is supplied by Jumpman Gaming, who are one of the biggest names in the UK when it comes to online bingo and slots. Jumpman Gaming have created a large number of bingo sites over the time they have been in business, all of which have decent numbers of options.
As far as we were able to tell there is no free bingo available at Britain Play. Other sites have bingo rooms where free bingo is available for a very limited period, but that does not seem to be the case here. Buy-ins start from as little as a penny though, so you can play bingo here easily without spending a fortune!
All rooms are public, so there is no opportunity for you to play privately with friends.
The look of the Britain Play site should be a familiar one for most bingo players who have played at a Jumpman Gaming site before. It’s a common template that nearly all sites under the Jumpman banner adhere to, so if you have played at a Jumpman site before, then you’ll find yourself on very familiar ground.
We were a little disappointed by the fact that, unlike many other Jumpman sites, there is no dedicated page for bingo itself. To find the bingo that is on offer here you have to use the search facility. The emphasis at Britain Play is very much on slots, which might displease some people who don’t enjoy them.
The site though is very easy to use, with huge thumbnails available for most games at the site. There is almost nothing beyond slots and bingo, simplifying the navigation process.
Britain Play offers no dedicated apps for mobile devices, neither iOS nor Android. You can play at Britain Play easily via any mobile browser though and without any issues. Indeed, the mobile version of the site mirrors the desktop one almost perfectly so you will feel right at home no matter the version of the site you are using.
The registration process at Britain Play has been successfully streamlined to make it as simple as possible to open an account there.
Head to the landing/home page and click the ‘Join Now button to start the process. If you have a PayPal account you can simplify the registration process even further by using the details of your PayPal account. If not, you just need to fill in your name, date of birth, email address and mobile number (optional). Click to confirm that you agree to the T&Cs and you’re good to go to the next step.
Step two involves you completing your address. When you have filled this in you can progress to the third step, which involves you choosing a suitable username and password.
That’s all you need to do! Note, when we signed up we were not offered the chance of winning a spin on the ‘Mega Reel’ for free, but instead had to make a minimum deposit of £10.
Your main option for deposits at Britain Play is to use a debit card. Both Visa and MasterCard deposits and withdrawals are available, with deposits being processed instantly, and withdrawals taking three days to process and then another one to three days to arrive in your account. The minimum deposit is £10 and the maximum £200. The minimum withdrawal is £20 and there is no maximum.
Alternatives to debit cards are limited to PayPal, Pay by Mobile and Paysafecard. Note that withdrawals are not available to Pay by Mobile or Paysafecard. The minimum deposit from Paysafecard is £5 and the maximum is £100.
Withdrawals via PayPal are the speediest way to get your cash, taking as little as three days. Deposits via Pay by Mobile are subject to a £2.50 transaction fee and we are sad to report that ALL withdrawals are subject to a £2.50 transaction fee, as is common at all Jumpman Gaming slots and bingo sites.
All the bingo rooms at Britain Play are shared across multiple Jumpman Gaming sites, meaning that when you play bingo here, you will be sharing bingo space with players from countless other sites, all adding to the entertainment value. While it is true that these rooms are never as populated as other bingo providers, there are still always enough people to make you feel you are never a ‘Bingo Billy No-Mates’.
The chat hosts in charge of running the rooms are real pros and do their best to keep everything entertaining, asking random quiz questions and handing out the occasional spot prize.
Britain Play does not seem to be active on social media, and we could find nothing from them on Twitter or Facebook.
This bingo site has a reward scheme in the style of winning and claiming rewards which the casino classifies as ‘trophies’. There are countless trophies you can collect and they are all based on your activities at the site. There are over 30 available for bingo alone, for achievements such as winning a game of bingo within seven days of signing up at the site, or completing ten single lines of a bingo card during your bingo play.
You begin this VIP scheme at level 1 and you only need to collect five badges in order to progress to level 2. Each time you rise a level you are granted a single spin of the ‘Mega Reel’, so those 500 free spins on Starburst are always up for grabs.
There are over 200 badges to be won, so you can easily make it all the way up to level 16, which is as high as you can go, although you can still claim badges and are awarded free spins for every five badges that you attain.
There is only one way of contacting customer support, and that is via email at email@example.com. The site does not offer any kind of live chat facility, which is something of a surprise as most online bingo and top slot sites now do.
When you sign up to Britain Play you can immediately set deposit limits. These are set for daily, weekly and monthly deposits. Once set, they cannot easily be changed – if you want to change them you will need to contact customer support and give them reasons as to why you want them changed.
This site provides its own ‘Responsible Gambling’ page which is something to be applauded. The page provides advice on problematic gambling and links to helpful organisations such as Gamcare and Gamblers Anonymous.
You can also apply break periods (up to six weeks) and self-exclude yourself for six months. If you want to self-exclude for a longer period or permanently then you can do by contacting support.
Britain Play is a perfect, non-fussy site for people who enjoy a little bit of bingo with several slots (over one thousand in fact) thrown in too. Even though this is a Jumpman Gaming site, there is not really enough emphasis on bingo for our liking and we’d like to see a dedicated bingo page added.
We like the site’s dedication to the promotions of responsible gambling, and the ease at which you can apply deposit limits, break periods and even self-exclusion times. The only downvote for the site really is that £2.50 processing fee on all deposits, which we would like to see removed as soon as possible.
Why not join the rest of your bingo Britain players at Britain Play Bingo today?
It is, but there are no dedicated apps provided by the site. You can play via mobile using any suitable mobile browser.
Yes, that’s set at £20.
Three types – UK-style 90-ball bingo, US-style 75-ball bingo and 80-ball bingo too.
Unquestionably so. The site is properly licensed and Britain Play’s operators, Jumpman Gaming, have a very good reputation for providing safe and secure wagering sites.
No, at the moment it does not.
