32Red Bingo Review
You would be forgiven for associating the name “32 Red” with casino games, but that hasn’t stopped the team at 32Red Bingo claiming it for their own, and declaring themselves to be “the UK’s premier online bingo site”. A bold claim indeed, but do they live up to the hype?

Registering & Claiming your welcome bonuses
You don’t need a promo code to get your hands on 32Red’s no deposit, first deposit and reload bonuses.
Registering with the site is really straightforward and you just need to fill in a simple one page form with your basic details.
If you want to claim your welcome bonus you’ll also need to supply your card details, and this is done on a separate page. To add a card you have to head to the banking area and look for a tab which is a little confusingly named “deposit” not “add card”.
After registering my card I was flicked over to a deposit screen and not completely sure whether I needed to do anything else to get my hands on the no deposit bonus. But, after taking a break to make myself a cuppa my £10 sign up bonus had come through, and I was all set to start playing.
Claiming the first deposit bonus is just as easy and the £32 bonus is added automatically when you deposit your first £10. You can then help yourself to a 25% reload bonus on every future deposit after that, which again is added automatically. Once you are a depositing player you gain access to all the jackpots across the games, which aren’t all available to non-funded players.

You can also claim an extra £5 in BBz by refering a friend.
I found the general site interface to be nice, though at times the information I wanted was a little hidden and I struggled to navigate certain sections. The colour scheme is bright, with an animated funfair running in the background and on he homepage too, the background also changes colour depending on the time of day. I’m not sure how relevant this is to the rest of the site but it does it does show that the guys behind www.32redbingo.com have made an effort with the website in a world where many of the sites look very similar.
Once you are in game, you are greeted with a cheery male caller, who uses some of my favourite fun bingo calls to energise the game. There is a chat interface as part of the bingo window, on the left-hand side. This is nice and clear, and the chat host is marked at the top of the window. Some of the smileys in the chat room make noises, I know that some people love this and think that it makes things more interactive and lively but I end to find it a little annoying at times Nonetheless the chat was quite friendly, and frequent chat games where you could win free bingo bonus money helped keep the tone lively throughout and made me feel welcome and part of a community from the start.
