Boyle Bingo Review

BoyleSports Bingo belongs to one of Ireland’s most successful independent bookmakers, the Boylesports Group. The company was established in 1989 by John Boyle, and has an amazing reputation throughout Ireland and the UK as one of the most trusted and high quality betting and gaming services around.

The group has over 115 land based Licensed Betting Offices throughout Ireland, and their bingo site is powered by the well known Virtue Fusion software,owned by Playtech who you may well have heard of. The company is registered in Gibraltar, and is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Government of Gibraltar.

The bingo lobby opens in its own separate window and displays all games about to start so players can dive straight in and get going, but there is also a very well designed schedule where you can plan your play and even pre-buy tickets in case you get side tracked or have an emergency when the game is actually being played.

Loyalty & Promotions

A lot of bingo websites have loyalty schemes, but not many of them put as much effort into them as BoyleBingo – players really do have the chance to get back what they put in.

There is nothing out of the ordinary about it on the surface; you get points for the games you play and the number of points you have is what decides the loyalty level you are at. From there, you get things like better reward point redemption rates, free bingo, exclusive bingo event invites, things like that. Plus, loyalty points can be exchanged for casino bonus money or cash.

However, players who are active in the chat rooms can boost their points balance significantly, by winning the mini games in chat or by being so active that the chat hosts nominate you as ‘Roomie of the Week’ which will bag you a shed load of reward points. It’s a great incentive to get invovled.

There are also plenty of continuous bonuses and promotions on offer for all players too. In the past they have been known to run cash back promotions, offer free bingo or the chance to upgrade your bingo tickets to play for bigger and better prizes, and give bonuses for playing at specific times on specific days. So always check their promotions page to see what is currently up for grabs.

Bingo Games & Software

Boyle Bingo Lobby

Operating on the highly acclaimed Virtue Fusion network gives Boyesports Bingo an envious number of bingo rooms, game types, and variations. It also means there are always a lot of other players online at the same time as you, whenever that may be.

The bingo on offer at BoyleSports Bingo comes in variations of 75, 80 and 90-ball bingo for the most part, but there are also an interesting group of ‘specials’ which include 36, 40, and 52 ball variations of our favourite game.

These all have slightly different game rules and ways to win so there is no chance to go stale – if you are getting tired of one game you can get a totally different experience at another.

This is also a bingo site that can boast some serious big money jackpots, like the £50k King of the Jackpots prize. This particular pot is split 50/50 between the winner and the rest of the community in the game, but there are others that all go to the winner. It’s all about variety after all.

There are branded games like Deal or No Deal, bingo rooms attached to well loved slots like Age of the Gods and Rainbow Riches, and some pretty quirky adaptions of bingo too like Cash Cubes which has 3D ‘cubed’ bingo tickets. Madness!

Side Games

Boylesport Bingo also offers up a wide variety of additional games too including many slots, scratch cards, casino and numbers games (Keno and more bingo).

These games have all been created by either Playtech or a company owned by Playtech, but there is still plenty of variety within them and there are some especially mouth watering progressive jackpots attached to a lot of them too.

It’s good to have a few casino type games as options as well, but they live in their own section so if you’re not interested in them then you don’t even have to look at them. For those that do enjoy roulette and blackjack, for example, there are a couple of options for you to tinker with as your numbers are called.

What they have got right here is offering a nicely balanced mix of different types of side games, and at the same time not offering so many of them that it takes too long to decide which ones to play. After all, Boylesports have a fully equipped casino just a click away if you want to take a break from bingo and do some more heavy duty slotting, and what they showcase here is an excellent sample of that.

Community

Boyle Bingo Community

Bingo is supposed to be a fun and sociable activity which is trickier to achieve online than it is in a real venue, but Boyle Bingo strike an excellent balance.

Getting involved in the chat window is actively encouraged and even rewarded, creating a great atmosphere which everyone can get involved in.

The chat hosts all have little bio’s on the website so you can get to know them a little bit and there is also a useful glossary of ‘bingo lingo’ for anyone who is wondering what all of this 1TG, BFN, and GL stuff is all about.

There are also regular chat games with small prizes available and a little info section which explains each one and how it works so that you are ready to fire away at the keyboard as soon as one comes up.

A lot of bingo websites talk about creating a good atmosphere but don’t really do much about it, but here they really do, and it works. You can while away the hours chatting and playing to your hearts’ content.

Conclusion

BoyleSport Bingo provides a clear, professional, and reliable platform with fantastic games and great prizes. The BoyleSport brand is well established and trusted, with a history of exceptional customer care and loyalty towards its players.

Their efforts to create a community feel go a long way too, and with the loyalty scheme being as strong as it is you would need a good excuse to go and play your bingo somewhere else. It all ties together very nicely.

The fact that there is also a casino and sports betting option with this brand will either be great news or a huge turn off depending on who you are, but either way it is something to consider.
