Bingo Diamond Site Review

The purple homepage of Bingo Diamond, with its bright yellow and pink title text and navigational elements, suggests a bingo site with a certain sense of fun - and those who suspect as such could hardly be more right. Having opened in 2011, this bingo site - which uses the software of the renowned provider Microgaming - has been around for a little while now, but nonetheless still feels fresh and offers some great bingo, slots, casino and other exciting games.

Games & software:

There are no fewer than eight bingo rooms to choose from at Bingo Diamond - namely the Broadway Room, Friendship, Sapphire, Speed, Sunshine, Harmony, Spinner and Immortal Romance. The Microgaming software that powers these rooms can probably be best described as unspectacular but functional, with the graphics and sound effects being on the tolerable rather than jaw-dropping side. That said, the incorporated chat box is more than welcome, helping to add a sense of community to the gaming action.

Microgaming is, however, well-known for the other gaming software that it provides. It therefore shouldn't shock you to learn that Bingo Diamond is also home to various nicely presented and enjoyable casino games like roulette, blackjack and video poker - just the thing, we reckon, when you want to take some time out from the bingo action while still having a bit of fun. You'll also find a fun selection of slots here, some of which - like Game of Thrones and Thunderstruck II - you might be familiar with from many big-name casino sites.

The bingo and non-bingo software alike at Bingo Diamond is of an 'instant play' rather than downloadable nature, which enables you to enjoy the games within your browser from basically anywhere with an Internet connection.

Mobile platform:

Bingo Diamond may not have its own mobile app like many of its rivals, but then again, it's not strictly needed when any site looks this good within a smartphone or tablet browser. It means that you can continue to play your favourite games, including bingo, without the need to have anything separate downloaded onto your device. The site optimises itself so well for mobile that you might even forget the standard desktop site exists!

Signing up:

You can literally sign up to Bingo Diamond in just a few minutes, as all that you have to do is complete and submit a single form requesting such information as your first name, last name, email address, phone number, date of birth and postal address. It's all very basic, easy-to-understand stuff, and you don't even need to click on any of those email verification links that are so common when joining sites like this - at least until the time comes to make a deposit.

Payment options:

The range of accepted deposit methods at Bingo Diamond isn't as dazzlingly broad as some other sites offer, but it nonetheless covers all of the most obvious options that one may wish to go with, from MasterCard, Maestro and Visa to Neteller, Skrill and Paysafecard. PayPal is a perhaps curious omission from the list.

Customer support:

The support on offer from Bingo Diamond is quite basic in some ways - there's no FAQs section, surprisingly, so you might have to go rooting through the Terms & Conditions page to find answers to any more obscure queries. That is unless, of course, you decide to get in touch with the site team, which can be done via 'live chat' or email.

Although the live chat isn't available on a true 24/7 basis, its actual hours are close enough to that, amounting to 10am-10:30pm, UK time, seven days a week. If you would like to use email instead, the site makes it easier by providing a quick and convenient form to complete and submit.

Bottom line:

Bingo Diamond certainly isn't perfect in every day - we would consider an FAQs section to be pretty close to essential - but it nonetheless offers a lot as a bingo site, including plenty of both bingo and non-bingo games, decent software courtesy of Microgaming and various tempting promotions. Avid online bingo aficionados could definitely do a lot worse than Bingo Diamond!
