Glossy Bingo is one of four online bingo sites owned by the Broadway Gaming Group, Butlers Bingo being their flagship brand. Some three years after launching Butlers Bingo in 2011, Glossy Bingo was born, an online bingo and slots website rated as excellent on Trustpilot.
Chill, chat and play with friends in multiple Pragmatic Play powered bingo rooms, try your luck with side games or hundreds of top-rated gaming titles from the likes of Microgaming and Eyecon, all with just the one log in and bankroll. Promotions are always running with freebies, bonuses and additional ways to win offered to players around the clock. With all this in mind, we decided to put Glossy Bingo to the From the Players for the Players test. See how they got on here.

With our reviewer being an existing Glossy Bingo player, all they had to do was log in on Wednesday 1st of June. Recalling the registration process, kleefergie said it was easy to understand and complete in under a minute. The usual information is required to open a bingo account such as name, address, email address and date of birth.
Before making that deposit, our tester headed to the notification tab to view the day’s offers but decided to decline the casino bonus as the wagering terms may have complicated her request to withdraw later in the day.
Deposit options available to our reviewer included debit card, PaysafeCard, Neteller, Skrill and PayPal. To save inserting all of her payment info, kleefergie opted for PayPal and chose the “skip PayPal payment confirmation page” option for a quicker transaction. After confirming her account, a deposit of £150 was made.
Bingo variants include 90-ball, 80-ball, 75-ball, 30-ball and Bingo Blast with its modern twist on a traditional game of bingo. Entering the Broadway Room with three chances to win in every game and a progressive jackpot, kleefergie noticed the opportunity to win up to 15 chat games in a 24-hour period - a maximum of £15 in bonuses. Each room has settings allowing you to adjust sounds, the size of tickets and chat, multiple dabber patterns and colours and you even get to set an avatar to help you stand out in chat. Any changes you make are only saved to the room in which you are playing in, meaning you will need to repeat the process for each room you play in.
To play in a different room, players must press the menu to the top left of the chat feature. This brings up a new menu with links to the lobby as well as banking, bingo rules, bingo history, bonus history and the help centre. The lobby takes you right back to the welcome screen with daily offers and deals, top games and bingo specials.
One of the most popular bingo rooms to play in is the jackpot room, guess why? The jackpots! The 90-ball bingo room has prizes of real cash for the one-line and two lines and the full house, with a progressive jackpot going to the player(s) who manage to call a full house of 15 numbers within the stated number of calls. The jackpot at the time of our reviewers visit was almost £4,700!
Bingo Blast is a fun alternative to bingo with two blasts of bingo balls resulting in 4x quicker gameplay. Once two blasts of balls have taken place it’s onto the full house with numbered balls pulled fast and furiously at random. As soon as all 15 numbers have been marked on a ticket, it’s game over. Bingo Blast is the only 90-ball bingo game to feature the one prize – the full house prize!
Glossy Bingo is home to a huge and varied selection of online slots too and despite the lack of a jackpot tab, there are plenty! Just like the bingo rooms, to access a different game you must return to the main lobby to search for games right from the beginning again.
Popular games include those with bonus features where cash values are held and re-spins take effect with potential jackpots spinning around the reels, just like the bonus in that of the Assassin Moon title.
Our reviewer’s biggest win in relation to bet came with Elemental Gems Megaways, where a £1 spin triggered a win of £77, thanks to a 5x multiplier boosting the reel win.
Requesting a Withdrawal
According to the login screen, Glossy Bingo withdrawals are “express withdrawals”, with Visa Debit customers eligible for next business day withdrawals. Our reviewer had used PayPal to make her deposit, and as such, didn’t qualify. On Wednesday 1st of June, a withdrawal for £220.45p was made. Less than 24-hours later on Thursday 2nd of June, the PayPal withdrawal was complete and the funds were in her e-wallet. Once she had logged into PayPal and requested a transfer of funds, the £220.45p bingo withdrawal was in her bank account instantly.
How Does Glossy Bingo Stack Up?
Fast withdrawals appeal to online bingo players, along with an array of bonuses, promotions and a wide choice of games. Based on this test, Glossy Bingo ticks all the right boxes! The tester’s PayPal cashout was processed in less than 24 hours.
Live chat is on hand should anything go pear-shaped. Bingo rooms may be quiet during the day (UK time) but this means more chances to win. Busier periods mean more players and more prizes, but reduce winning odds. The range of jackpot games is superb too with Microgaming’s Mega Moolah network among the most popular. Aside from the bonus wagering requirements (35x), Glossy Bingo is a top-notch destination for online bingo and slots.
This information concludes this extensive test as part of the project From the Players, For the Players. If you are a member of Glossy Bingo or consider making a deposit, we hope this report provided some useful information.
