The British weather isn’t always great so sunnier climes are never far from our thoughts. In February 2019, when the weather was chilly, Balmy Bingo made its appearance in the world of online gaming. Palm trees and blue skies are waiting for you at this Jumpman Gaming/Pragmatic Play site and whilst it may not be on the ‘hot list’, there are plenty of games to choose from when you sign up to play here.
Bingo appears to take a bit of a back sun lounger to the slots, and the wagering requirements are a little hefty, but is it a place you would want to sun yourself at, or one that will have you running for the shade of a different brand? Read our review to find out.

Bingo Games and Slots
Bingo isn’t the star of this show, despite the site being called Balmy Bingo, slots are, and what a selection the site has! The list of instant win games, both slots and table games, is extensive and includes a whole plethora of the most popular developers online today.
Titles from developers like Blueprint Gaming, NetEnt, Eyecon, Quickspin, Pragmatic Play, Yggdrasil, Slingo, and many others are available. As well as popular developers, there are also popular titles to be found at the site including Immortal Romance, Rainbow Riches, Beat The Bobbies, etc. There are also big money progressive in the mix
Table games are available as well, and some of these are live games.
Now to the bingo, and the biggest disappointment from this brand. Bingo is an afterthought and whilst many were excited at the introduction of the Pragmatic Play offering, there is a lack of live games here. During our visit, we had to wait at least an hour for a game of bingo! With that said, there is an abundance of choice and you can opt for 75 ball, 90 ball, 80 ball, and 30 ball games. The site is also home to the Bingo Millions games and there are some large jackpots on offer – a couple are for £1 million!
Balmy Bingo does not offer you a mobile app for your phone; access to the site is through your browser on your device.
Pros and Cons
- The Trophies reward programme is interesting and offers many opportunities to earn extra Mega Wheel spins
- Popular payment methods available
- Big money jackpots both on bingo and slots
- Wheel spins offered on many different deposits.
- Pay By Mobile depositing option charges per transaction
- £2.50 charge for processing withdrawals
- High wagering requirements
- No live bingo games
This website is operated by Jumpman Gaming Limited who also own the following sister sites:
The homepage design suggests a bingo paradise with palm trees and blue skies, but in our opinion, it’s not a bingo destination that we would be visiting on a regular basis. The lack of live bingo games is really disappointing and whilst Balmy Bingo does boast some life-changing jackpot amounts from their bingo, the chances of winning are pretty slim.
With the high wagering requirements and charges for some deposits and all withdrawals, it is really hard to be enthused by this brand even if they do have a massive selection of slots to offer.
