Registering & Claiming your welcome bonuses
It only takes 60 seconds to sign-up at moon, and the “Join Now” button is highlighted in pink so that it stands out. This is just one easy form, and there are no card details needed. You also don’t need to wait around for a confirmation email. Once you’ve registered it brings you to the “Your Account” page rather than the homepage, which is unusual, but I like the account interface in general and this does make sense as if you want to play most of the games on Moon you’ll need to deposit (which can be done easily via the Account main page). You can search through games on the base website, but as the game lobby takes you back to the start regardless of where you open it, it’s best to just head straight there.

The in-game interface is simple, but easy to navigate. It’s also nice to see a totally new design, not just a rethemed network layout. When you click through to the lobby there is a one-arm bandit style game to win coins as a daily bonus. There are various tabs in the lobby, including slots and bingo. The bingo tab has three 75-ball games available, though they are not all constantly available; instead they have overlapping time slots, so while none are continuous there is always a 75-ball game available. There are also seven 90-ball games, of which one is basically constant. The prices range between 1p and £1, and all games are daily.
If you haven’t immediately deposited then you have no access to any games in the “Bingo” tab, so you’ll need to go to the “Freebies” tab to find the no-deposit game, where newbies have access for 48 hours from sign-up. There is a free room for each level of loyalty/VIP membership. The Newbies free game is played for loyalty points, not for cash, and the jackpot is 250lp. Given you need 1000 to convert to £1 cash, this is not a moneyspinner, but it’s still a lot of fun. I had an issue with the ticket display, as the background is pink, but your tickets begin with all numbers highlighted. As they are called they turn pink, which made me think I had already got 1 line, not realising I was confused and looking at un-called numbers.
The caller voice is a keen young male voice, one which is used commonly across several sites. It’s well recorded, and uses a complete set of bingo calls. There is no chat in the freebie room, but in the paid rooms it’s on the right-hand side, with the bingo cards to the left. It’s a good chat format, clear, with shortcuts for popular chat comments (brb, wtg), regular chat contests and friendly hosts, though it can become quite slow, depending on the time of day.
What can you play?
There are several free rooms on Moon Bingo, each one dedicated to a certain membership level. Your first deposit will give you access to the first deposit room for 3 days, and then as you progress through the membership levels, different rooms become available.
There are no slots which are free, but there’s a large range if you do choose to deposit. If you do want to fund your Moon account they have an opening offer of “Add £10, get £40 to play”, plus you will get access to the blue level freebie room for 72 hours. They also have loyalty and VIP programs with lots of perks. The loyalty coins can be won by facebook liking, inviting a friend and playing, as well as the daily bonus when you log into the lobby. Moon has a mobile platform available.
Alongside this, when I logged on for a second time (still without having deposited at this point) I was greeted by a pop-up promising extra welcome bonuses. When I entered the chat which popped up I was offered 10 tickets to Moon Bingo’s Payday game which has a £10,000 jackpot, which I was told would be sorted out for me when I deposited – this is on top of the 300% bonus which you get for your £10 deposit. I don’t know if I would have been given these tickets anyway, or if this is a complete one-off. The chat was really friendly however, and made me keen to participate.
