Registering & Claiming your welcome bonuses
The Red Bus Bingo homepage is simple, but it’s very nicely done, with the header being the top of a classic red double-decker, and the logo as a ticket. It’s also easy to see where to go for registration, thanks to a female passenger pointing the right direction. Clicking here takes you to a basic form where it is just a case of registering your basic details, such as name and address. There is no need to add your payment details as part of the registration process, and there is no email confirmation to wait for, meaning that you can start exploring the site immediately. There is no no-deposit welcome bonus at Red Bus Bingo, but they do have several free games to enjoy if you don’t want to deposit immediately.

The first page which you are directed to once you have registered is an account page which lists your transactions, your balances, and has a section showing any current offers. From here you can also access the cashier section, which is marked by a safe. There is a “Play Now” button in red, though it could be a little bigger as it’s not obvious, which opens the game lobby in a new pop-out window. The background shows some London landmarks around the edges of the lobby interface itself, which is a red double-decker bus. Though the quality of the art is not of the highest standard, I really appreciate the fun element of this design.
The games are organised along tabs part way down the side of the bus, which is not immediately obvious. The titles of the tabs don’t help, as they aren’t particularly clear either, though as there are only two tabs of bingo it’s a quick matter to find a game you’d like to play. Along with the bingo are a variety of pre-buys and some instants as well. Within the Bingo Circus tab you’ll find a mixture of 90-ball classic bingo and 75-ball bingo. If you join the VIP club at Red Bus Bingo you’ll also gain access to their VIP games which draw in bigger jackpots than some of the others available here.
Moving through to the game window, the background of the tickets is a bright red which pops against the blue of the sky behind it. The caller is energetic, and uses a full range of bingo calls which really adds to the overall atmosphere. The ticket selector pane is on the left of the window, with the chat interface on the right. There is no chat interface available in the free rooms, but there is active chat in the other rooms and if you pick a room with a chat host present, they are friendly with a decent level of conversation in the chat room, though sometimes real “conversation” is lacking and is replaced by either chat games or people simply calling out how many balls they need.
What can you play?
Hitch a lift on the Red Bus, pop over to the Free Zone to play one of two completely free games, Free Ride which is free for all, and £1,000 Free – just fund your account to play!
There are two free games at Red Bus Bingo, one free to all players, and the other only for funded members. Besides the bingo there are also a variety of instant games and slots available here, though these are also exclusive to funded players. If you do choose to deposit with Red Bus Bingo you will be in line for a welcome bonus of £25 on top of your first deposit, a “Red Bus Travelcard” giving you a total of £35 on a £10 deposit.

Pros and Cons
I loved the theme and the design of the site
Good variety of games
I’d have liked chat in the free rooms and thought that it was a little dry in the other rooms when I was playing.
