The first thing that strikes you when you first load up the page is confusion! It took a little while for our eyes to get used to the ‘hectic’ looking home page. If you haven’t opened account with Ladrbokes yet, then you won’t miss the opportunity as its best described as being screamed at you, as there are large banners flowing across the screen encouraging you to sign up. If you already have an account with Ladbrokes then you can use the same user name and password, otherwise you’ll need to register to begin playing bingo.
While writing this Ladbrokes bingo review found the process really easy and hassle free and setting up an account was no trouble at all. Along the top of the screen you can access the casino, or sports betting if you like a flutter on the horses, but we wanted to play bingo so created an account and got logged in to have a good look round. Once you’re logged in, we felt the layout was just a little clumsy. On the left of the screen you can access the slots, promotions, community and help. If you continue to scroll down the page then this is where you’ll find the bingo schedule. What really liked is how easy it is to sort what you’re looking for. As in the schedule there are drop down menus so you can sort by room, time, prize band and price. We found there were at least three bingo games being played at the same time with only a 15 or 30 second gap between different games starting in different rooms. A great choice of bingo games on offer, perfect for help with writing this Ladbrokes bingo review!
When you have finally chosen which game you want to play a new page loads up. We found it to be a bit sluggish at first. Once it has initially loaded you’re presented with a full screen asking how many tickets you want to purchase. You can use the slider up or down depending on how many tickets you want to buy. If you want to just have a look around before committing to buying any tickets, then click the ‘play bingo now’ on the left of the page. You’ll be asked to enter bank details but if you want to you can skip this and enter the main lobby area just so you can have a look around.
The lobby area is easy enough to find your way around. At the bottom is a list of all the bingo games which are about to begin, there is also a list of slots here and all your account information can be found at the top of the screen. The colour scheme is light and dark blues and looks OK. The graphics do not feel as clean as other bingo sites, but there is still nothing wrong with them. Once you’ve chosen what game you want to play, we went for ‘the bingo games’, then it will take a little while to load up. We found it took about 30 seconds or so to fully load up. Once loaded, on the left of your screen is the chat box to have a natter with fellow roomies. On the right are your cards, and above this was an animation of people running on a race track. We got to choose which character we wanted to be running along the track which was a nice touch. The name calling was fine, but the voice wasn’t exactly to our liking. But hey, we’re being pretty petty here. Maybe when you writing a Ladbrokes bingo review you pick up on little things like that.
Ladbrokes Bingo Review Summary
We ventured in to a few other of the bingo rooms and they all had a similar layout and feel. The one thing we were impressed with was the number of games available, the action was pretty much non-stop. Plus if you do fancy a break then you can stay in the room and load up a slot game or two too play that while chatting to the other roomies. So how do we feel about Ladrbokes bingo? It’s not the cleanest and crisp bingo website out there, but if you can get used to it, then it’s like anything else, it becomes second nature. The major plus here is the vast amount of games on the go at any one time. The load times and game play can be a little sluggish, but perhaps that’s just our bad luck. Overall Ladbrokes comes out just about on top, a good place to play bingo just through the sheer selection of games.
