Wayne's The Palaces Bingo Online Review
In this review I've deliberately used the word 'online' here because The Palaces is actually a chain of bingo halls that has venues in Great Yarmouth, London and Felixstowe.
If you're looking for info on these three venues, head to their other website: palacebingo.co.uk. If you're looking for info about their online bingo website, keep on reading!
Online Bingo's Best Kept Secret
The Palaces Bingo is one of those sites that has been around for a few years, but has kept itself largely under the radar. This is probably due to it not having an affiliate scheme, which means review sites (including this one) won't make any money by promoting it.
Usually when a bingo site has no affiliate scheme, the big review sites like WhichBingo wouldn't talk about it at all. But I'm not like those other sites.
Check out the video below which explains why this site is special, and why I'm recommending it despite not being officially affiliated with them.
Patrick The Bingo King
The reason I believe this site is different to the rest is probably the result of one man, Patrick Duffy. He's the MD and owner of The Palaces and he appears to take a real hands-on role in both the retail and online business.
When you sign up to The Palaces online, you get a welcome email directly from Patrick, in which he says thanks for joining and provides both his personal email address and phone number, to contact him if there are any problems.
I also encountered Patrick in the bingo chat rooms on more than one occasion, plus he has been known to do live zoom calls during the lockdowns with players. I've taken part in a few of these zoom calls and they're great. They usually take place during the evening's Session Bingo (8pm- check site for latest schedule) and in between the bingo games he does little games, such as Play Your Cards Right with the players who have joined the zoom call.
I even managed to make it all the way to the end of Play Your Cards Right once and Patrick credited me with a £5 bingo bonus.
I cannot think of any other bingo website owner that would ever engage so directly with their players than what Patrick is doing. This is why I believe his site deserves a special mention from me, and I encourage you to go and check them out.
