Since its launch in 2005, Foxy Bingo has become one of the best-known online bingo sites, helped in no small way by a huge TV advertising campaign. The site and games are owned by Cashcade which is owned by Entain Plc who run numerous other sites including Gala, Ladbrokes and Coral.
The site layout features lots of shades of purple, plus the Fox himself. Popular games and the Bingo schedule are all available from the home page which contains lots of information, even if deciphering the "foxy speak" can get a little tiresome at times
The new player welcome bonus tends to be towards the lower end of what can be provided, which is disappointing for such a major brand. As with most bonus offers of this type, players must meet certain wagering requirements before cashing out any funds and, in this case, the combined deposit and bonus amounts must be wagered 4x, and only the cash part and any winnings can be withdrawn. The actual bonus amount cannot be withdrawn and is for the purchase of bingo tickets only.
There is a good range of ongoing bonuses and promotions for returning players. The Loyalty scheme is Foxy's Perks, where players can earn cashback on their wagering. The highest cashback available is 0.3% on Bingo and the minimum withdrawal is £1, meaning you'd need to wager at least £330 on Bingo to earn £1 cashback and even higher on other types of games. There are regular double cashback days on Wednesdays to enhance your earnings and other occasional promotions with enhanced cashback, but it's still not the most generous loyalty scheme.
Foxy Bingo provides 90, 80, 75, 36 and 30 ball games, plus free bingo and jackpot versions. Once signed up, players will find around 40 rooms with games starting every couple of minutes and prices from as little as 1p a ticket. Having so many players online at any one time means that the chat rooms can be quite lively and entertaining and, as always, it's a trade-off between the bigger prizes that can be found with more players in a game, and the fact that a player is less likely to actually win.
There is a good range of side games, like
Featured games are available on the home page and the full range of games can be viewed without registering.
Foxy Bingo accepts a wide range of deposit and withdrawal options, including the most popular credit and debit cards, plus e-wallets and prepaid vouchers. Withdrawal requests will be processed in two business days, although the payment processor may need to further review the transaction, so it can take at least a week for requested funds to appear back into a bank account. Withdrawn funds will normally be sent back to the card or e-wallet used to make the deposits, which is the normal procedure at online bingo sites, and players will usually have to provide some proof of identification before requesting their first withdrawal.
Customer support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week although they seem keen to discourage people from getting in touch as the Contact Us button directs straight to an FAQ-style help page. When eventually located the contact us page does not provide a telephone number but does offer Live Chat as well as email and social media contact options. .
Foxy Bingo has used the power of massive advertising to become one of the UK's most played at bingo sites. The games are well attended, with good chat facilities and there is a good range of side games. On the downside, customer support can be difficult to locate and the loyalty bonuses for existing customers aren't generous, plus deciphering the "Foxy speak" used throughout the site can be frustrating.
