You Landed on the Moon Bingo Review You Were Meant to Read
If playing bingo on the Internet is your thing, then guess what? We already have something in common. And the next thing I believe we share is the crave for a good bingo site, which offers great games through-out the day, where huge jackpots and pre-paid tickets are available. Well, Moon Bingo is definitely a serious contender, so let’s see what they have on the menu.
First and foremost, their relaxing and easy-to-navigate site is a breath of fresh air compared to all the kitsch, flashy bingo sites that I’ve seen. The dark turquoise background is soothing to the eye and the menu is pretty rich in terms of games and promotions. In the following review, I will share with you my Moon Bingo experience and you can decide for yourself if this is the site for you.

Align Your Stars With Great Bonuses and Fresh Games
If there is something definitely worth mentioning and trying at Moon Bingo it’s the number of rooms to play at, each and every one with special bonuses, chat games, progressive and guaranteed jackpots. Granted, they only offer 75- and 90-ball Bingo, but there are so many different rooms to play at and so many ways to win, that it really is child’s play to increase your funds. So, let’s start with the 75-ball bingo and see which are the most rewarding rooms. First, there is the Daily Grand, where for as little as £2, players can grab a £1000 jackpot. Then, there are the Moonalicious and the Luck n’ Roll, both of which offer also progressive jackpots. The 90-ball bingo rooms come in a larger company, also with hot jackpots, 1TG and 2TG features and chat games. And, as any self-respecting bingo site, Moon will never let you miss out on a jackpot, as you can play these games on your mobile device, as well.
I started playing in the Newbie Room, since as a new player I got a two-day free pass. You play for coins there, which you can later turn back into cash to buy bingo tickets with. Although I was a little disappointed to find there was no chat feature, I suppose it’s normal for a Free bingo room. On the other hand, I won enough coins from jackpots and lines, to claim a couple of pounds in the first hours of playing. So, I decided it was time to fund my account and get access to bigger rooms with bigger jackpots, chat games and all. I made my first deposit and along with it came the welcome bonus – £60 for a £10 deposit. Here is where it gets interesting. Good thing I decided to talk to Customer Support over the live-chat function, where they gave me the code I needed to claim the bonus: PLUS. I had read several Moon Bingo reviews before I started playing there, none of which mentioned this bonus code. But aside from this offer, there are many others that can give your funds a little boost. Check them out:
- A Fantastic 500% Bonus Bundle: once you fund your account, you will receive a bonus bundle which consists of £30 for bingo, £10 for slots and £10 worth of cards for the Daily Grand.
- A Little Something on Top: I was surprised to find that I got an extra £2 on top of the 300% deposit bonus, so I asked the Live-chat moderator and as it turns out, they simply gave me a little extra to play with.
- Free Coins and Bingo Everyday: Moon Bingo will reward you with free coins daily, which you can later redeem for real cash. On top of that, free bingo games with real-money wins are available for all players, new and VIPs alike.
- Happy Players during Happy Hour: twice a day, between 12pm – 2pm and again between 5pm – 7pm Moon Bingo offers double coins, double freebies, double everything. Special themes are chosen every day and there is also a Happy Hour bonus available between Sunday and Wednesday, which can be claimed using the code FUN.
Loyalty points are called coins and Moon Bingo is just giving them away to all players. You get coins simply for visiting the site, for playing, for buying tickets, for being cute. Well, I lied about the latter, but it could happen. The very-first day I played I received coins for joining, for playing and then I won a lot myself in the Freebie Room, so I have to say that I admire Moon for generously rewarding their users on a daily basis. Their VIP programme is really great and VIPs enjoy perks like free cash and coins, cashback, birthday bonuses, holiday gifts and more. Players can find a similarly generous VIP rewards system at Gala Bingo.
Software Platforms for Desktop and Mobile Fun
Operated by Cassava Enterprises, Moon Bingo runs on the software platform provided by Brigend Limited – a subsidiary of Dragonfish. As you will see in the following pictures, the desktop platform includes a great selection of games – bingo, casino and instant win. What I am most fond of is their collection of slots, with 8 progressive jackpots and more to be added soon. All-time favourites like A Nightmare on Elm Street, Millionaire Genie, Piggy Payout and Fluffy Favourites are just a few of the names on the menu. The site is really easy-on-the-eye and players should have no problem finding their way around. With quick access to promotions, bingo and other games, freebies and the help section, new users will be able to find everything they need pretty fast.
Just as promised, Moon Bingo also has a great mobile platform, which allows you to take the fun with you everywhere. The games that can be played are 75- and 90-ball bingo, roulette and many of the finest, most popular slots, like: Starburst, Jack and the Beanstalk, Secret Garden Slot, Temple of Isis, Gonzo’s Quest and Jack Hammer 2. iOS users can just go ahead and download and install the software from the App Store, while other mobile devices will have to settle for the web-app. The downloadable app requires iOS 6.0 or later and has been optimised for iPhone 5. Most of the customer reviews about the Moon Bingo app were positive and filled with compliments. Some users had complained about the mobile site loading too slow, but it seems that the new update has pretty much fixed this problem. For iOS users, we suggest the downloadable app, as games load quickly and it doesn’t require such a fast Internet connection.
Security and Licence Details
Having mentioned already that Moon Bingo is operated by Cassava, it practically goes without saying that this is a legit site to play at. Moon Bingo operates under the licence of 888 UK Limited. Although 888 is licensed and regulated by the Government of Gibraltar, online gambling sites need to have a valid licence issued by the UK Gambling Commission, as of 1st of November 2014. As far as the banking transactions are concerned, all data is encrypted and stored on secured servers, so your personal details are in good hands. And as for the results of the games, you can rest assured that they cannot be messed with in any way. Moon Bingo as well as all other licensed sites use a Random Number Generator which insures fair and transparent games.

If you have any questions and you couldn’t find the answers in the Help section, then you have several options of contacting the Customer Support, which I have to say is impressive. Except the toll-free number that is shown in the previous table, you can also use the web contact-form, send an email or give them a shout in the help chat room, the moderators will be more than happy to assist. Obviously, they will also help you with your deposit, withdrawal or whatever banking issues you may have. As far as the payment methods are concerned, all the ones that matter are there: Visa, Maestro, MasterCard, Neteller, PayPal, PaySafecard and Ukash.
Summing It Up in Few Words: All for the Moon
I have to say, in all honesty, that Moon Bingo has very little things that don’t agree with me. One of them would be the lack of the chat function for the Newbie Room, but then again you will only play in that room for 2 days after the registration. Also, perhaps couple of games of blackjack would be a much needed addition to their games collection, but I am sure that will happen soon enough. That aside, I was very happy with the Customer Service and their overall attitude towards their players. The games are very entertaining and work great on mobile devices as well. That, combined with the easy-to-claim, generous bonus make the perfect recipe for success.
