Wayne's Lucky Pants Bingo Review
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.
The choice of games is still very limited, but it is early days for the relaunched brand. I'm not too keen myself and don't see any great reason to play here when you can just go to Mecca and get everything and more than what you can find at Lucky Pants. The only thing different really is the 'Stranger Thongs' daily game (see below) and I don't think that's enough of an incentive to join.
Lucky Pants doesn't have all the bingo games you would normally find on Playtech, but as I mentioned it does have some rooms that up to now were exclusive to Mecca Bingo, such as Britain's Got Talen Bingo, Emoji Bingo and Best Odds Bingo. Interestingly it does have some of the other Playtech favourites, such as Deal or No Deal Bingo 90, but it doesn't have the 75 ball version yet.
- 90 Ball Bingo
- 75 Ball Bingo
- Best Odds Bingo (BOB)
- Britain's Got Talent Bingo
- Deal or No Deal Bingo 90
- Emoji Bingo
- Rainbow Riches Bingo
I'm not sure why they wouldn't just give the players access to all the Playtech rooms. I guess maybe they don't want to overload their existing players with too much, too fast.
Stranger Thongs Board Game
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.
