Wayne’s Bingo Barmy Review

Bingo Barmy is the latest site from the team at Maxi Affiliates. They’re experts with Dragonfish bingo sites and own half a dozen or so small sites on the platform already, such as Chit Chat Bingo.

This one uses the latest Dragonfish tech, known as Falcon, which sounds exciting but honestly I can’t tell the difference between one Dragonfish and another. The one thing I can tell is that this one is on the Real Bingo Network, which is the no-wagering one that has proven popular in recent years.

The site tries to make the most of the Barmy name by peppering the site with weird photoshopped monstrosities such as a woman with balloons instead of a face and a guitar made from an avocado. If that’s not your thing don’t let it put you off too much as once in the games everything is standard Dragonfish fare.

Video Guide

I was fortunate enough to get exclusive first-look access to Bingo Barmy a few days before the official launch.

In this video I take you on a quick tour of the site, have a look.

Bingo Rooms

Bingo Barmy’s is powered by Dragonfish tech and has all the usual bingo types you would expect to find:

The Royal Room

The one section that doesn’t fit into the whole barmy aesthetic is an area of the site called Royal Room. This confuses me at first because although it says ‘room’ (singular) it actually refers to a group of rooms (plural).

These rooms are networked across all the Maxi brands, so you won’t find them at most Dragonfish sites. There is at least one room open to all players who have made at least one deposit, as well as others that are invite-only and only open to players of a specific VIP level.

If you login and select bingo > loyalty, you can read all about the various VIP levels. Personally I’m never on one site long enough to truly care about VIP schemes.

"The site sure looks crazy but behind it all lies a perfectly sane and decent Dragonfish offering."

How to join Bingo Barmy

To register, simply click on the Join button in the top right corner of the website. This will open up the signup form which is in 4 parts.

  1. Enter your name, DOB, gender & agree to T&CS
  2. Select your address & currency (GBP)
  3. Enter your email & mobile number
  4. Choose a username, password & occupation.

Once you’ve done that, it will check your details and all being well you are then logged into your account. If there any issues you may be asked to send in additional ID, but don’t worry, this is normal routine for all bingo sites who now have to prove a player’s ID before they’re allowed to deposit.

Bingo Barmy Login

Once you are signed up, you can login using the button in the top right of the website. Enter your username and password and it will take you directly to the main lobby.

How to find the bingo games

The main lobby looks a little different to the standard Dragonfish layout, as it has some quick access buttons front and centre to help you navigate to the most important pages:

  • Games (All slots)
  • Bingo
  • Fluffy (Fluffy Favourite Slot Games)
  • Promotions
  • Royal Room

Obviously clicking on bingo will open up the bingo area, which by default opens up on the Royal Room area. This is because these rooms are exclusive to the Maxi Affiliates network, so they naturally want to draw your attention to this section.

Along the top you’ll see other filters you can choose, such as 90 Ball, 75 Ball, Daily Jackpot, FreeBingo, 52 Ball, etc. The option for All is best if you are new, so you can see all the available rooms in one go.

How to make a deposit at Bingo Barmy

Ondesktop there is a big deposit button at the top of the page, whereas on mobile there is a button down at the bottom. Clicking on this will open up the cashier directly on the deposit section.

Here you can deposit via one of the following methods:

  • Debit card
  • PayPal
  • Paysafecard
  • Deposit by phone

Click the one you wish to use and then select ‘Add a payment method’. On the next screen you can then select how much to deposit, starting at the minimum amount of £5.

However, before you choose make sure you’ve checked the promotions first to see if there are any promo codes and whether or not they’re triggered by a certain amount of deposit. Typically, bonuses are only granted to deposits of £10 or more, so always read the T&Cs before you deposit.

Once you are ready, follow the on-screen instructions for your chosen method and click the deposit button to finish. A confirmation will appear if your deposit is successful, and your balance at the top will be updated.

How to withdraw

To get the the withdrawal screen, simply open up the cashier in the same way you did to make a deposit (by clicking the deposit button).

On desktop you will see a menu on the left hand side, which looks like three dots, on mobile this shows at the bottom.. Click it and you will be able to select ‘more options’ and then ‘withdrawal’.

Withdrawals can only go back to one of the methods you have already used to make a deposit. Select the one you want, how much to withdraw and then hit the button. It may take a few days to process depending on your chosen method. See website for more specific details on withdrawal times.

Claiming Bonuses

If you have made a deposit it is likely you will get some kind of promotional offer, such as free spins or bingo tickets. These have to be claimed within the lobby in order to play the free spins or to use the tickets.

There will usually be some kind of big pop-up or notification in-game to remind you, but you can just click on the gift box icon in the top right corner of your screen on desktop. On mobile there isnt the same icon but if you click on your profile pic and then select ‘my vouchers’ it will do the same trick.

The vouchers screen will slide out from the side and it consists of two sections, games vouchers and bingo vouchers. Games vouchers is where any free spins you have been awarded are found, bingo vouchers is any free bingo tickets. Clicking on an active voucher will take you to the game where they can be used.

Free Bingo at Barmy

There are actually a few decent free bingo options available at Barmy Bingo. To find them just head over to the bingo section and then select Free Bingo from the menu across the top.

Here you will see all the free bingo, including rooms open to all and some that could be invite only or for VIPs. When the site first launched there were two rooms open to all, a 90 ball room and a 75 ball room, but these promotions may be subject to change so always check the website for the latest information.

Does Bingo Barmy have an app?

No, but if you search the app store for Bingo Barmy you are likely to find a different app which is for a free to play social bingo game which has the same name. It is not the real money bingo site that we are discussing here, so don’t bother looking for it.

The real Bingo Barmy website is fully mobile & tablet responsive, so just visit the site in your browser like any other website. The games will all scale correctly to your chosen device so there is no need to worry that it doesn’t have an app.

How to contact Bingo Barmy

The easiest way to contact Bingo Barmy is via live help. If you’re logged into the site you will see a button on the right hand side called ‘Help Chat’. Click on this to open up live support.

At first it may appear to be an email form because it asks for your email address and subject, but when you hit the submit button, it doesn’t send your message as an email, it just puts you in a queue to speak to a live operator.

If you log out of the website and visit the main homepage, there is a contact link in the main menu. This will show again a link to live support, as well as a freephone number that is open between 10.00am and 2.00am, 7 days a week: 0800 901 2510 (UK only).

There is also a link to an FAQ page for more general enquiries.
