For a long time, Lucky Pants Bingo was one of those small online bingo sites that I gave very little attention to, mostly because of it's cheesy name and god-awful TV advert from years ago that still to this day has me singing "Go get your, go get your lucky pants" whenever I hear it's name.
It was one of four brands that were part of the Daub network, along with sister sites Kitty Bingo, Give Back Bingo and Bingo Extra. All four brands shared the unique Daub bingo software, which wasn't amazing by any means but at least it offered something a little different.
However, in October 2020 Lucky Pants Bingo was moved from the Daub software over to Playtech by new owners The Rank Group. If that name sounds familiar it is because they're the owners of Mecca Bingo, and now the site is beginning to look like a mini-Mecca itself, taking on some of the bingo games that were once exclusive to Mecca only.
Mecca is one of the very best bingo sites in the UK, and so Lucky Pants Bingo hs now been significantly improved if you look at it like that, given they now share games with Mecca and are run by the same team.
There still isn't any great reason to play here instead of Mecca, other than maybe fancying a change. The only thing different really is the 'Stranger Thongs' daily game (more info below) but that in itself is nothing to get too excited about.
Bingo Games Available
Here is a list of all the different varieties of online bingo available at this site:
One unique feature available at Lucky Pants that survived the move from Daub is the daily free play game known as 'Stranger Thongs'.
It looks a bit like a Monopoly board game, in that you roll a dice and move around a board, with various prizes and stuff to win depending on where you land and how many pairs of pants you can collect. Collect three matching pairs and you win the following prizes:
Budgie Smugglers: £2 slot bonus.
Auntie's Bloomers: Lucky Loot entry ticket.
Banana Hammock: 5 Berry Burst spins.
Fancy Pants: 10 Free Aloha spins.
Brazilian: £1 Slingo bonus.
Smarty Pants: £1 cash.
Lucky Pants: £5 cash.
Hot Pants: Roll again.
The only catch is that you can only play this game if you've wagered £10 in the last 7 days. Once you do that, you can get 1 dice roll every day for 7 days. If you wager another £10 in a single day you will earn another dice roll, up to a maximum of 3 rolls per day.

How to find the bingo games
If you're on mobile you'll see a bunch of icons along the bottom, once of which says 'bingo'. Tap on this and then scroll down to see all of the bingo games starting soon.
You can either click on an individual room to go straight into it, or clicking on the large 'Play Bingo Now' button will take you to the standard Playtech lobby that you may be familiar with if you've played at other Playtech brands. All the bingo rooms will be there and you can click on the 'Games' tab at the top if you wish to find slot games.
On desktop the process is pretty much the same only the 'Bingo' link is at the top of the page rather than the bottom. Once in the lobby on desktop, you have a few more options down the left hand side to filter the games by All, Popular, Jackpots and Exclusives. To be fair none of these are really needed at the moment as there aren't that many bingo rooms to really need to filter any out.
How to make a deposit at Lucky Pants Bingo
If you're on the main desktop site you can find a 'Cashier' button at the top right. If you're in the bingo lobby you'll see an icon also in the top right which says 'Deposit'. Clicking either of these will open directly on the deposit screen, where you can deposit via the following options:
If you're on the mobile homepage, you'll also see a cashier button at the top. However, if you're in the mobile lobby this button isn't visible, so you can either click on either the menu icon (top left) or account icon (top right). Both open a dropdown menu where 'Deposit' is one of the options.
Once you choose your preferred deposit method there are buttons to select either 'no bonus for me', 'choose a bonus' or 'do you have a promo code?'. If bonuses are available you will find one by selecting 'choose a bonus', but bear in mind from this view the key T&Cs aren't visible, so you may want to check the promotions page first before you commit to using it.
The minimum deposit amounts vary depending on your deposit method: PayPal = £20, Debit card = £5 and Paysafecard = £10.
How to withdraw
To make a withdrawal at Lucky Pants Bingo just open up the cashier in the same way you did to make a deposit. Even clicking on a 'deposit' button will work, as you can quickly select withdraw from the deposit screen.
The site claims that most withdrawals will be processed immediately with 80% of payments reaching player's bank accounts within 10 mins. Apparently this speedy withdrawal time is only if you bank with either Barclays, NatWest, HSBC, Nationwide, RBS, Revolut, Marks & Spencer Financial Services, Cumberland Building Society and Ulster Bank.
For other payment types, including Lloyds, Bank of Scorland and Halifax, it may take the standard 1-3 working days.
As with all bingo sites, withdrawals must be made back to the same payment method that was used to deposit, or one that you have used to deposit recently. I couldn't find any explicit information about minimum withdrawal, but it is usually the same as minimum deposit which was £5 for debit cards.
Does Lucky Pants Bingo have an app?
No, but it will work fine on any mobile or tablet device directly from the browser
Customer support is available any time between 3am and midnight, 7 days a week.
Who owns Lucky Pants Bingo?
Lucky Pants Bingo is owned by The Rank Group, who are most famous for being the owners of Mecca Bingo. In recent years they acquired a company called Stride Gaming, who in turn owned a company called Daub Alderney.
Daub was a relatively small operator but one that at least had it's own bingo platform that was unique to them. They had four bingo brands on their platform:
Give Back Bingo
Lucky Pants Bingo
However, since Rank became owners of Daub they have begun to move these sites off the Daub bingo platform. Bingo Extra and Give Back Bingo moved to Dragonfish in August 2020 and Lucky Pants moved to Playtech in October 2020. I expect Kitty Bingo will make a similar move in due course.
