Heart Bingo have teamed up with X-Factor Finalist Olly Murs who acts as the site ambassador, fronting the TV adverts and many of the headline promotions - including the recent ‘Win a Holiday with Olly’ where two lucky players got to jet off for a trip of a lifetime with the cheeky chappie himself.
Previously on the Gamesys platform and network, Heart Bingo migrated in September 2021 and is now operated by BetVictor - one of the UK’s most established online operators of bingo, sportsbook, poker and casino sites.
The Heart Bingo theme is based around the popular Heart FM radio station, which is part of the Global Media Group - the largest commercial radio group in Europe.
All new UK players that sign up to Heart Bingo can claim the Welcome Offer of £30 free bingo plus 100 spins - with no wagering requirements. To qualify, simply register below and play at least £10 on any bingo game or slot (apart from Aviator).
This is a very straightforward Welcome Offer from Heart Bingo and although we’ve highlighted the most important terms below, you should always read the full T&Cs before taking up a bingo or casino bonus:
There are so many bingo bonuses available at Heart Bingo that it’s virtually impossible to keep up to date as new promotions are launched almost daily. While many promotions are time limited, some of the more regular campaigns include:
This is just a small selection of the incredible range of daily offers available at Heart Bingo. You can also find large network promotions such as Pragmatic Play’s Drops and Wins plus pop up promotions including City Break Prize Draw, Game of the Week and Make me a Millionaire Wheel.
Since Heart Bingo made the move to the Pragmatic Play bingo software and network of bingo sites, there’s more bingo and fellow players than ever before. With cards starting at just £0.01, it doesn’t take much to get started.
90-Ball Bingo is the most popular online game and you’ll find plenty of that at Heart Bingo. But fans of other varieties will not be disappointed as there’s a good selection of alternatives with 70, 80 and the super simple 30-Ball Bingo.
There’s much more bingo to be played - don’t forget the Newbie Room which is open to new players for 5 days after their first deposit.
From the minute you register, you will not be disappointed with the Heart Bingo experience. The site has been expertly crafted to ensure every interaction is smooth and speedy.
The site is intuitively structured and the main menu is comprehensive without being cluttered - from here, you can find your way to every nook and cranny on the site. The main header bar is simply segmented into Bingo, Slots, Casino, Slingo and Promos and a search tool will effortlessly find games and slots using just a few letters.
The pages are fully responsive which means they will be optimised to render beautifully no matter what device or platform you’re using. The main game lobby is attractively presented with oversized thumbnails of the rooms along with the game info, including game type, ticket price, prizes and the number of players already registered.
The rooms open up to give a generous sized game window, although the chat box and mini games sidebar dominates the right hand side of the screen and can’t be turned off. However, if you do like to chat, you have full control of the settings including font size, colour and avatar.
The room settings also allow you to turn auto-daubing on/off and select the shape and colour to personalise for your own taste.
Heart Bingo performs perfectly well in a mobile device’s browser with navigation as smooth and speedy as desktop - sometimes it even feels better due to the pages being fully responsive and optimised for mobile.
However, there are apps available to download for iOS and Android devices if you prefer the nuances of playing in an app. These also work perfectly well, but appear to be wrapped apps rather than native apps. So with that said, you’re probably better off just playing Heart mobile bingo in your browser and saving the mobile device’s storage space for something else.
Once you’ve successfully created an account at Heart Bingo, you’ll be able to make a deposit and start playing immediately as you will almost certainly have been electronically verified - and possibly have received an email informing you, too.
Before you go ahead and deposit, you’ll be prompted to set a deposit limit before choosing a payment method, of which Heart Bingo accepts MasterCard and Visa Debit cards, plus PayPal. (Remember that PayPal deposits do not qualify for the Welcome Offer).
The minimum deposit and withdrawal is £10 with no transaction fees. Heart Bingo holds all player funds in an independent Trust Account which means they are 100% secure, even if the company or group become insolvent.
Withdrawals are usually processed within 24 hours, but they’re usually a lot quicker than that. Bank transfer is an additional withdrawal option for when the original deposit method does not allow refunds.
At the heart (pardon the pun) of every bingo site is its community. As a game that requires no skill - therefore no errors or advantage over other players - bingo players are far more social and most will often offer their congratulations when you win.
Each bingo room provides a chat box where players can share anecdotes of their bingo wins or even information about their pets! Chat hosts are on hand to moderate and offer limited assistance while you play.
The Heart Bingo Blog is a hotbed of information and publishes a variety of news, lifestyle and entertainment articles, including interviews and recordings of Olly Murs.
Signing up at Heart Bingo is a simple 3-step process and takes just 60 seconds or less. Only the most basic personal information is required to get you up and running:
And that’s it! You’re all ready to go explore all the busy bingo rooms, latest slots and hottest promos that Heart Bingo has to offer.
Over the last few years, the UK Gambling Commission has made it very difficult for UK facing operators to publicly offer a VIP Program for fear of breaking strict affordability rules. As a result, many casino and bingo sites now tend to offer their VIP players bespoke rewards, based around their own individual activity. So while you may not see a VIP Program on Heart Bingo site, you can be confident that your loyalty is being tracked and will be rewarded accordingly.
The Support section at Heart Bingo offers a very comprehensive set of Frequently Asked Questions which will help most players resolve the most common issues, including those regarding payments, bingo bonuses, technical and help with the actual games.
Should these FAQs not help, you can submit a ticket using a contact form (with attachments if necessary) or by:
Live Chat is probably the most responsive with courteous and professional support agents available 24/7.
