Heart Radio provides a network of 17 local radio stations, which covers Southern England, the Midlands and Northern Wales. Each week they broadcast to more than 7.4 million people, and in 2010, the company branched out into the world of online bingo alongside. They operate a standalone site, which is powered by Gamesys. The platform itself is operated by Entertaining Play Limited, who are located and registered in Gibraltar. They are licensed and regulated in Great Britain by the Gambling Commission, and everywhere else by the Government of Gibraltar.

The homepage of the site is decorated in vibrant red and white, the same colour of the radio scheme, and not only that, the Heart logo is printed in the top left. Adding to this, there's a very easily usable navigation bar, as well as several advertisements as well, which includes a quick join link, recent winners, and plentiful information on how to play bingo. Various different games are also included to tempt possible players.

Entertaining Play has licensed the Heart Bingo site and operates it using the Gamesys Limited software. This is the same name that supports Jackpotjoy Bingo.

Registering on the platform only takes a couple of minutes, and once you have done so, you'll not only be able to start browsing properly through the games, but you'll also open yourself up to various different promotions as well. The first of these is the welcome bonus, which only requires you to make your first deposit of £10 or more. Doing so will provide you with a bonus of 200%, and a maximum bonus amount of £50 on top of your deposit. Following on from this, players are able to benefit from a few other regular promotions, including 'BOGOF Bingo' and 'Rush Hours'.

Bingo Games

Heading into the lobby will provide you with the different games available, which are separated into four different tabs, 'Bingo', 'Slots', 'Instants' and 'Free'. On offer in the lobby is 80-ball, 90-ball and SuperSnap bingo. There's only a small selection of rooms to play in, although this is by no means a hugely bad thing as the more players congregating in such, the higher the jackpots become.

Bingo rooms are split into three columns, with the left providing a grid which shows all of the balls that have been called, plus a break down of the game's jackpot. You can swap this panel for a selection of mini games if you prefer though. The middle column is dedicated to the cards you have purchased, and the right one is where the chat room is placed.

Other Games

There's a selection of slots on offer, as mentioned previously, with titles like 'Pyramid: Quest for Immortality', 'Wonderland' and 'Fortune Temple'. These provide a break away from the bingo products that are offered on the site, and there are several jackpots on offer here, too.

The instant win games that are available on the platform are fairly few, with a total of nine offered at the moment. These include the recent addition of 'Monster Cravings', which can be played alongside others, such as 'Poochie Racers' and 'Gold Digger'.

Promotions and additional features

The Heart Bingo website follows a slightly different trend when publishing their promotion section, although the site is similar to most and has their own dedicated promotions area, the name of this page has been renamed to "Promos", a bid to save space or sound cool, we are not too sure. The Promos area of Heart Internet first shows players a welcome bonus promotion, apart from that there are very few additions. There are 4 active promotions at the time of writing this review which include Free Bingo Fortnight, Slots Cashback Weekend and Kick Off With Free Bingo.

Players can view the different areas of the promotional area which include the following pages:

  • Refer a friend
  • Redeem a voucher
  • Rewards

The Redeem a voucher section is pretty self explanatory and requires an account to be viewed, we are not too sure when a user may obtain a voucher unless it's sent randomly or periodically via mail or email.

The final section being the Reward Station allows players to accumulate points which can be exchanged for bonus items and credit. A player will accumulate Reward Station points at a rate of 1 point per £5 spent on games. Players can convert them once they have accumulated some points, there is a dedicated section set aside for the promotion so players can see the full terms surrounding it.

Game Software

The software which powers the Heart Bingo site is Gamesys Limited software, a known brand which also provides gaming services to the likes of Jackpotjoy. The Heart Bingo website itself if licensed by the Government of Gibraltar (RGL No. 46) and is heavily regulated by bodies such as the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner - these bodies are tasked with ensuring the games entered by players are totally fair and have random outcomes.

Payment Options

For registered players to fund their accounts, Heart Bingo offers up several different methods to be able to do this. The first of these is the well-known credit and debit card options in Visa and Mastercard. Paypal is also accepted as the only eWallet, while prepaid cards with the Paysafecard company are also readily taken.

Customer support

This website offers 24/7 customer support to its players, and the team can first of all be contacted via the Live Chat function. Failing this, you are able to send an email along to them, which can be done via the online form.

Finally, should you feel the need to call them on the phone, you can use the freephone number, 0800 458 3360 to do so.

Conclusion

Being a player at this website will allow you to access several different bingo and non-bingo related games, as well as take advantage of a few different promotions and the knowledge of constant support along the way.
