Wayne's Mr Q Review

When Mr Q first launched in 2018 I was very excited as it was the first site in a very long time to have developed their own unique online bingo software. Not only that, but they promised a fair bingo experience with no wagering required, everything seemed great.

The site itself looks fantastic. They clearly have a very talented design team, everything is clean and minimalist. It has a very modern design which puts many established bingo sites to shame. However, the one area that is still lacking is the number of bingo players in the rooms.

For whatever reason, players just don't seem to be sticking around (in the bingo at least). Player numbers are very low and this results in many games being played out for pennies, rather than pounds, and that in itself becomes a vicious circle in that players see the low prize money and don't join the games. It's a shame because the game itself is very good, but without players and decent money to win, online bingo is not much fun.

The No Nonsense Casino

Judging by the recent TV advert for Mr Q that came out in Summer 2021, it appears that Mr Q have realised this and the best way to move forward is to focus on it's strong points - the casino and slot games.

And this is what you really should think about when joining Mr Q. It isn't really a bingo site at all, that area they've really failed to get going, but the slots and casino content is going from strength to strength. Combine that with the no wagering and actually you've got a nice little site here.

Putting themselves forward as the no-nonsense casino that "you've never heard of" I think is a nice approach that I quite like. Less said about the bingo, the better I think.

No Wagering Required

One of the best things about this site that we cannot overlook is that it is another that has ditched the wagering requirements. This means anything you win, whether that's from free spins or bonuses, gets paid in cash.

So if you've been stung in the past with excessive wagering, you know at least at Mr Q you won't have to worry about that or do any maths to figure out how much wagering is left to do.

Bingo Games Available

Here is a list of all the different varieties of online bingo available at this site:

Bingo Rooms

Mr Q's selection of bingo rooms appears to be on the decline. When I first reviewed the site in December 2020 they had 8 different rooms but in my latest update in July 2021 there were only two bingo rooms in the lobby I could see: a 90 ball room and a 75 ball room.

The lobby still has tabs for free bingo and progressive jackpots, but they are currently empty. No idea if this is temporary or the new normal for the bingo side of Mr Q.

How to make a deposit at Mr Q

If you're on desktop you'll see a big 'Deposit' button up in the top right of the screen. On mobile this appears as just a small icon next to your account balance. If you click this it will open up a cashier which gives you just two options to deposit with:

  • Debit Card
  • PayPal
  • Pay by Phone

The minimum deposit amount is £10. If you choose pay by phone the maximum you can deposit in one go is £30, so bear that in mind if you like to make deposits bigger than this you should select PayPal.

How to withdraw

To make a withdrawal first you must click on your avatar in the top right corner. A dropdown menu will appear with 'Withdraw' as one of the options. Click this and follow the simple instructions.

The minimum withdrawal amount is £10 and can be sent back to the same payment method you used to deposit.

Free Bingo at Mr Q

Mr Q did once have a couple of free bingo rooms where winnings were paid in real cash:

  • Free for All
  • Freedom

However, these rooms appear to have gone missing lately. Not sure what's going on there.

Does Mr Q Bingo have an app?

No.

There is an app called Mr Q on the Google Play Store but it is not bingo-related, so do not download that! The site works perfectly fine through your mobile or tablet browser, so there is no real need for an app anyway.

Who owns Mr Q?

Mr Q is owned by a company known as Lindar Media based in St Albans. They started off as affiliates and still own the bingo review site; OnlineBingo.co.uk. Over time they grew and opened their own white label bingo sites, including Circus Bingo, Oink Bingo and Pixie Bingo - all of which are now closed.

These were all nice looking sites, but Lindar had ambition to be more than just the same as everyone else, so they spent several years developing the software that went on to become Mr Q.

Why is Mr Q called Mr Q?

In a previous job I interviewed the owner of MrQ, Savvas Fellas, who revealed the name for Mr Q was simply down to the desire to have a short website URL. 'MrQ.com' was the coolest sounding 3 letter domain name they found available, and so the brand was built around it!

There isn't a real person or a 'Mr Q' that exists in the real world!
