Fabulous Bingo is a UK facing site on the Virtue Fusion bingo network that’s home to many other popular bingo rooms including Moon Bingo, Mecca Bingo, Buzz Bingo and its older sibling, Sun Bingo.
Originally launched in 2011, Fabulous Bingo underwent a major relaunch in 2021 to compete with the new bingo sites that had come onto the scene since then. Nowadays it’s a much more modern and entertaining site, bursting at the seams with plenty of bingo, slots and generous promotions. Do we dare say it’s been a fabulous makeover?
Both Fabulous Bingo and its sister site, Sun Bingo, are owned by the media giant News Corp who also publish The Times amongst other high profile news outlets including TalkTV and many more.
Fabulous Bingo welcomes new UK players with a £20 bingo bonus plus 30 free spins. The minimum deposit to claim this generous offer is just £10, creating great value for your first deposit:
Fabulous Bingo knows how to reward its players. They have a large number of daily promotions on offer at any one time. Daily free bingo is great for those looking for no deposit bingo bonuses, and there are plenty of other promotions on the hundreds of games available.
Some of the regular promotions include:
Being a partner on the Virtue Fusion network brings many benefits for Fabulous Bingo. Not least the number of bingo rooms active at any one time with some extremely juicy jackpots waiting to be won.
Bingo tickets start at just 1p in rooms such as the London Loose Change game, with plenty of other rooms available with tickets ranging from 2p up to £2.
90 Ball Bingo is the most popular game played at Fabulous Bingo and most rooms will offer a progressive jackpot which can reach tens of thousands. Deal or No Deal Bankers Special is one of the busiest 90 Ball games plus a unique room based upon the popular Fluffy Favourites slot machine.
There are just a few 75 & 80 ball bingo games available in the lobby where you’ll also find a tab that contains Exclusive and Special games reserved just for the players of Fabulous Bingo.
As Fabulous Bingo is such a well established UK bingo operator, the player experience has evolved into a faultless journey - from registration, to depositing, playing and dealing with customer support, every touchpoint has proved to be a positive experience.
The site is well structured and easy to navigate intuitively both on desktop and mobile. Fabulous Bingo is played within the browser on all platforms with no download required. Browsing both the bingo and casino lobbies is a seamless experience with pages and games loading in an efficient and speedy manner.
The Bingo lobby allows players to create a Buddy List of their favourite players which highlights when they’re online so you can join them in a game. You also have the opportunity to pre-register for games which can be played without being present - perfect when you don’t want to miss a whopping progressive jackpot that’s just waiting to be won.
Account Management features such as cashier, profile and responsible gambling controls are all easily accessible and practical to use.
We love slick bingo mobile apps here. We’re happy to report: Fabulous Bingo is great on mobile. You can just fire up the site in your mobile browser and it plays like a charm: there is no need for a native Android or iOS app to download and take up space on your device.
The fully responsive site and games perform flawlessly on all devices with most features and functionality optimised for mobile devices. Casino games open up in near full sized windows for maximum enjoyment while player controls are dynamically sized to suit each device.
The mobile version of Fabulous Bingo utilises elements such as sticky menus to imitate and offer a similar experience to a native mobile app, but without a download required.
Once you’ve successfully registered an account, you will be directed to the deposit page which offers a fairly good number of deposit options, including:
Fabulous Bingo operates under a UK Gambling Commission licence and since April 2020 it’s no longer possible to deposit using a credit card. The minimum deposit is just £5 for each method with no transaction fees.
Withdrawals are processed within 24 hours by Fabulous Bingo with the availability of funds on your account being dependent upon your bank or card issuer
It’s common knowledge that bingo is one of the most sociable games to play online. Players communicate using the chat box where friendly hosts will offer encouragement and congratulations for players who have ‘one to go’ (1TG) to win a prize, or scoop a tasty jackpot prize (WDW - ‘Well Done Winner’!).
Players are actively encouraged to follow the Fabulous Bingo Facebook page where previews of upcoming promotions can often be found, along with exclusive offers and competitions that won’t be found on the main site.
Registering to play at Fabulous Bingo is very straightforward. Clicking on the Register button will take you through to the simple 3 step registration form which requires the following basic information:
Simply confirm you are over 18 years of age and accept the terms and conditions before you’re ready to explore all that Fabulous Bingo has to offer.
At this stage you will be prompted to register a card to make a deposit and set a deposit limit. Neither are absolutely necessary at this stage and can be updated at a later date if you just want to take a look around first.
All Fabulous Bingo players earn Loyalty Points on their bingo ticket purchases, with enhanced levels of earnings and offers available for each of the 5 tiers within the Loyalty Program.
All new players start off on the Opal level and earn 8 Loyalty Points for every £1 spent on bingo. Levelling up through the tiers is automatic when you earn enough points and Diamond Tier members can look forward to earning 16 Loyalty Points for every £1 spent on bingo plus 0.5 Loyalty Points for side games and slots.
You can exchange Loyalty Points for cash and bingo bonuses at different rates within each tier.
