Merlin Bingo Review

Merlin Bingo magicked their way to the world of online bingo back in February 2015. Part of the Live Bingo Network and powered by the Cozy Games software the site shares many similarities with other websites in the Network.

Based around the legend of King Arthur and the famed Round Table, has this wise wizard still got enough tricks up his sleeve to convince players to join or is this one site too far for the Live Bingo Network?

Merlin Bingo Visuals

Merlin Bingo is a treat for the eyes with an attractively designed website that makes great use of the branding. The site features a ‘hand painted’ background complete with wizards castle and spellbound bingo balls, as well as a suitably magick upped logo.

The homepage layout may be a little familiar to visitors who have played other bingo websites in the Live Bingo Network as they tend to use the same template. A main promotions slide fills the top of the page, directly underneath which are rectangular button links to various site pages, this is then followed Merlin’s Favourite Games and some welcome text, with the rest of the site being accessed via the main menu at the top of the page.

First impressions of Merlin Bingo are good, and the effective use of the branding certainly helps to build the magic and mystery they are presumably going for, a good start then.

Merlin Bingo Games

With no original games it may be easy to dismiss Merlin Bingo as another also ran especially if you have played any of the other sites in the Network such as Nugget Bingo and Ghost Bingo. However, the range and variety of bingo rooms is still impressive and if you haven’t played any Cozy Games powered bingo sites then you are in for a treat.

Utilising HTML5, games take approximately 10-15 seconds to download and install once selected and includes a wide choice of bingo rooms covering 90, 80, 75, 50 and 30 ball bingo with names such as Devoted Dabbers and Victoria 90. Many of the bingo rooms are shared across the Network which can result in some frantically busy sessions.

Live Chat is also available in most rooms which really helps build the social side of things with the added bonus of hosts throwing in extra bonuses and mini games, both of which can be easily missed when in the throws of a busy bingo game and are definitely worth keeping an eye out for.

For those players who need a break from the bingo, there are also casino, scratchcards and slot games available. Whilst not as comprehensive as a dedicated casino, there is still plenty of choice with various versions of roulette, blackjack, bacarrat, poker, craps and keno. Slot games are equally as impressive with hundreds to choose from, some with massive seven figure jackpots to be won.

When it comes to the gaming side of things, Merlin Bingo certainly conjures up more than enough variety to keep any player entertained for centuries and in this respect is one bingo site that impresses.

Merlin Bingo Membership

As with other bingo sites in the Live Bingo Network, visitors on a desktop are able to look through Merlin Bingo and see what games and offers are available. However, before they can participate they must first register as a member. This is a quick and easy two-step process requiring a few personal details which takes no longer than a few minutes, after which they can make a deposit and play. Membership login details can also be used to play the mobile version of the site, allowing members to dip in and out of Merlin Bingo whenever and wherever they wish.

For those players who need it, help is available in the form of 24hr live chat support, an email contact form and telephone support. There is also a FAQ page linked in the footer of the site than covers more commonly asked questions.

Deposit methods accepted include credit cards, Ukash, debit cards, Paysafe, Boku, Neteller and Skrill. Boku is limited to just £30 per deposit with all other methods having a £500 maximum, with no limits set for withdrawals. It is also worth reading through the terms and conditions especially regarding any bonuses as these tend to have their own separate rules before any winnings can be withdrawn.

Playing Merlin Bingo on Mobile & Tablet

Regular players of Cozy Games based bingo sites will know exactly what to expect when playing Merlin Bingo on a mobile device.

With no need to download and install a separate app for either iOS or Android based devices; players should instead visit the normal Merlin Bingo web address where they will automatically be redirected to a mobile optimised version of the site, better suited to the smaller screen dimensions.

Merlin Bingo on mobile shares a similar look and feel to the main desktop version, although it does feature a slightly smaller number of games. Thankfully, thanks to the tried and tested software used, the HTML5 based games download quickly, typically taking 10-15 seconds and run without any fun spoiling issues. Once point to note however, is that sometimes the games to do not fit the screen exactly which can lead to the occasional wrong button press, although this is not a serious enough problem as to ruin the portable experience.

Only members of Merlin Bingo can access the mobile website, so players must first register their details on the main desktop site and use their login credentials from this to access the mobile version.

As a take anywhere bingo site, Merlin Bingo on mobile gives a good representation of the main desktop website and provides a decent alternative for those players on prefer to enjoy their bingo on the go.

Merlin Bingo Social Media Pages

As appears to be the norm for bingo sites that are part of the Cozy Games Network, at the time of review Merlin Bingo does not have any social media accounts. This is obviously an aspect of the site that could be improved upon.

Merlin Bingo Verdict

Merlin Bingo certainly manages to conjure up a winning online bingo website. If you have not played any of the other sites in the Live Bingo Network then the atmospheric presentation, large variety of bingo rooms, ever changing bonuses and general all-round social atmosphere will be more than enough to keep most players going for quite some time. For those who have experienced other sites in the Network then, aside from the presentation, there is nothing new to be found at Merlin Bingo. Whether this is a good or bad thing will depend on previous experience.

Taken on it’s own, Merlin Bingo is a magical online bingo site that is almost worthy of the legendary status held by it’s namesake and a welcome addition to the Live Bingo Network.
