Mobile bingo has come along way over the past few years and more and more operators are making apps so players can enjoy bingo on the move. Wink bingo are one of the companies who have embraced this and made a top draw app for all mobile users. You can use this amazing real money bingo app on any mobile or tablet as well as all popular Android devices and iPhone’s & iPad’s.
Wink bingo like to reward new players & customers from the get go so it’s no surprise they will give you a really nice welcome bonus when you join. Navigate over to www.winkbingo.com and when you put down £10 to play with, Wink will give you a massive £40 bonus, made up of £20 for bingo & £20 to use on the amazing games section on the app. If you are new to bingo, don’t worry as the free newbie room that you get access to is the perfect place to practice and get used to the app.
How to download the Wink bingo app
If you use one of the many Android based phones out (like a HTC, LG or Samsung) you will need to download the Android app direct from Wink bingo. To do this, navigate your way to www.winkbingo.com and click login in the top right of the screen. New users need to sign up, existing customers can log straight in. When you have done that you will need to click on the 3 buttons in the top right of your browser and click add to home screen. This creates a quick link to Wink bingo straight from your phone. At present, there is no downloadable Android app so you need to use the very good mobile site.
Now for people using an iPhone or iPad looking to get the bingo app from Wink, sign up first to get your customer details and claim your bonus at www.winkbingo.com, once that is done you will be redirected to iTunes app store where you can click on ‘Get’ and the app will download just like any other app you have downloaded before.
Alternatively, you can scan a special QR code available in the Wink Bingo apps page. This action automatically installs the app on to your device. Aside from these two methods, you can also opt to use the web-based app. This last method is especially good for users that have phones that are low on memory as well as people that play bingo on company devices where downloading mobile applications into the phone is prohibited. It will also run on any Windows mobile device or a Blackberry.
Design & features
Wink Bingo really do place the go in Bingo with this amazing mobile app that lets you play wherever and whenever you want. A lot of thought has gone in to the design of the app and the way Wink really want to please all players and this is evident from the many games they offer and low ticket prices. The app had a major face lift last year and is now one of the best looking bingo apps available. There is a whole catalogue of games available including the latest bingo titles and slot machine games; players can now enjoy 75 ball and 90 ball bingo as well as 5 line bingo and a number of progressives with guaranteed jackpots. Choosing between the games available is pretty easy as there are 3 main types as mentioned –
90 Ball Bingo: This is the traditional form of bingo that has been played for many years. The aim of the game is to complete 1 line, 2 lines or get a full house before any of the other players do.
75 Ball Bingo: This game is more familiar with our American friends and is perfect for players with a keen eye. All the different bingo patterns will keep you on your toes and coming back and playing for more.
5 Line bingo: Sometimes called Swedish bingo, it is an action-packed, fast-paced variant of the game and is extremely straightforward to play and easy to understand. It is similar to 75-ball bingo in that a 5-line bingo card is used, this consists of a 5×5 grid pattern. The one main difference between the two, is that on a 5-line card there is no free square in the middle the way that are there on a 75-ball card.
All versions of the game are hugely fun to play and so simple to get involved in. The layout of the Android app & iOS app from Wink is identical so finding your way around is exactly the same. When you log in, you are straight in to the lobby of the app. Here you can see a tab at the bottom of the page which gives you access to bingo, games, your account and lots of help and support. At the top of the app you can see the banking icon with your balance in. If you want to add funds, here is where you need to click. You can also withdraw winnings here via many available methods listed below. The layout is very simple and there is nothing to distract you from playing games. The lobby also lists all the bingo games, organised by starting time order. Use the handy slider at the top to narrow to a certain room – You can see which variant of the game is available in the top left of the card and also view lots of info like ticket price, prize fund and how many other players have purchased tickets for the room. Scroll down to see the full list of available games, there are loads!
One of my favourite features on any bingo app that is available with the Wink bingo Android app and also the iOS version is the feature that lets you pre-purchase bingo tickets so you never need to miss a game. You don’t need to wait for the game to happen either as your tickets will automatically play using the app software.
If you have only just joined Wink, on the mobile site or app, you can also play free bingo games which is great news for newbies who want to learn the game and for players who are only in it for the fun. If you ever find yourself needing a change from the excitement of the bingo, there is a selection of favourite slot machine games such as Jack and the Beanstalk, Fluffy Favourites and the Temple of Isis to play too. To get involved, just press the games icon in the bottom left of the app and you will be taken to a whole section dedicated to casino style games. I have always found these so much fun and you can play in a demo or practice mode as well which is a good way to hone in my skills.
The Wink Bingo app is a breath of fresh air and so easy to use, both novices and experts will be more than happy playing their favourite game on this app. The cost for tickets starts at just 1p, so there is something for all budgets and jackpots on the app can go up to the thousands for those lucky winners out there.
How do you play bingo on the app?
If you have ever used a bingo app before then you will find it a piece of cake to play on this app. If you haven’t played before, then read on……………..
All you need is your mobile or tablet, your log in details (get them now if you aren’t yet a member) and to have made a deposit. Once you have done all those steps, log in and go to the lobby. Scroll through the room choice and then decide on your room. A good key is to look for the ticket price on the right and the jackpot amount. When you are happy with the room choice, select it by pressing on the image. Here you can now purchase your tickets or cards as they are called on the app. Select your amount then press buy. Once that is confirmed, you will go to the room where you can see your cards. If you have multiple cards, you can scroll through them and see them all, but the app will play any of your tickets first with the most numbers crossed off. Like most bingo apps, this mobile app from wink bingo will auto play the cards for you so you don’t need to to daub any of the numbers. When the game starts, as the balls fall, the numbers are called and your tickets will be played. So sit back and watch your numbers be marked off. You can use the in built chat feature if you want to speak to fellow players, just press the speech bubble and a chat lounge is bought up.
