Few online bingo websites have what it takes to make a favorable impression right from the get go, and fewer still have the ability to retain player interest for any length of time. As it turns out, Paddy Power Bingo is one such site, and this online bingo website operated by one of the biggest bookmakers in Ireland stands as one of the most resilient sites in the current crop.
Paddy Power has actually built up much of its reputation from novelty bets, and their long years in the business is a testament to the care and attention that they bring to every aspect of their operations.
Signing up at Paddy Power Bingo should be fairly simple and we expected to get through the sign up process in only a few minutes. It was not to be however, and we were quite frustrated to have to wait for the scrolling box to load. We thought that this was a serious design flaw on the part of Paddy Power Bingo, and we expect that more than a few players wouldn’t have the patience to sit through this tedious sign-up process.
Thankfully that was the longest wait we had to endure on the website, and the rest of the process including age verification and making a deposit went by a lot quicker. A welcome discovery was that making a deposit of £10 got as up to 200%, which equaled £20 in our case. Unfortunately this deposit was only available for use with the bingo games but it wasn’t that much of a problem since bingo was what we came for anyway.
Once we got in, we were pleased to find that the Paddy Power theme wasn’t just all about the name. The rest of the site also displayed a beguilingly charming Irish theme that really gave the whole experience a decidedly fun quality. This was a bit of a departure form the previous color scheme of the site, which was a bit more garish.
What Paddy Power Bingo did retain however where many of the features that have made the site so charming in the first place such as the Paddy Power Blog and their generous Loyalty Program. The blog was a particularly helpful touch that other bingo websites would do well to learn from, as it was a great source of information about new bonus offers and revolving promotions. Paddy Power Bingo also offers a beginner’s guide that is quite possibly the best we have ever seen in an online bingo website.
Finding your way around Paddy Power Bingo is as easy as it could be, what with the simple and straightforward user interface that nevertheless did not skimp on features and functionality. We have to say that this was in stark contract to the tedious sign up process and we were pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to hone in on specific features. And of course the games themselves were absolutely top notch, which is on of the most important things really.
