Visiting Monkey Bingo
Search for Monkey Bingo in your browser and you will be directed to the home page of the site. Naturally the theme is all things jungle, though that does not explain the odd choice of background colour, baby blue, which does not really complement the browns, oranges and greens of the logo and overall theme.
All the information you need is summarised on the page, and the main menu at the top of the page provides easy-to-access links to Promotions, Bingo and the Help screen amongst others, and you do not have to log in to see the information, as on some other competitor sites.
If you are already a member of the MonkeyBingo gang, then you will not have any trouble locating the Monkey Bingo login link. The Login Area is well highlighted at the top-right of the screen so you can get your details entered and log in quickly so the fun can begin!
It is hard to miss the Sign Up link (or links, we should say, as there are, in fact, two). The first is located just next to the Monkey Bingo login button and the second is located on the new user welcome bonus advertisement banner that takes up much of the top part of the home page. It is easy to find the Sign Up button, but how simple is it to actually become a Monkey Bingo member in comparison with other sites out there?
Overall, the Money Bingo sign up form for new users is pretty standard for most forms out there, there are no surprises here, most sites require the same details from players. The form itself is spread over several pages. Most players would feel it more convenient and efficient to have the form condensed into one single page form rather than have to click through several pages to complete the form. Nevertheless the form should not take too long to finish. Details you must provide for the form include your first and last names, date of birth, postal address, contact telephone number. Unusually the form to register with Monkey Bingo, like other sites on the same network, requires you to input details of your occupation to be able to successfully register. This is not an optional question, it is marked by an asterisk, so you will need to answer this question to finish signing up. If you are not comfortable with providing details about your occupation, as many would-be players might not be, then MonkeyBingo might not be the right site for you.
Once you have successfully worked your way through the form then you are all signed up to the site and ready to play! Well..not quite…
Once you have finished the form and signed up to the site, before you make your first deposit or start to enjoy the games on offer, you will be prompted to complete the Monkey Bingo verification process. There are 2 steps to this process: First is that the site needs to verify your age, and secondly, the site must verify your address. You must furnish documentary evidence to prove this. Proof of your age can include a copy of your passport, your birth certificate or your identification card. Proof of address be verified by providing a clear copy of a recent utility bill, dated within the last thee months, or a clear copy of your bank statement. Seasoned gamblers out there will know, it is much more preferable to have to do the verification procedure at this stage, than to encounter problems and delays when you go to request your first withdrawal.
Monkey Bingo Bonuses
The Monkey Bingo new user sign up bonus is Top Banana! For all new users to the site who deposit their first £10, they will each receive an impressive 120 bingo tickets to play with on the site. The tickets are playable in selected rooms only: Ticket to Ride, Golden Ticket, Just the Ticket and Choo Choo Ticket rooms. You must play your bonus bingo tickets within 7 days of their issue. The best part about this offer is that there are absolutely no wagering requirements on bonuses, they will instead be credited as real funds.
Monkey Bingo Promo Code
There is no need to enter a Monkey Bingo promo code to enjoy the new user welcome offer. The Monkey Bingo bonus bingo tickets will be automatically credited to your account once you fulfil the eligibility requirements, i.e deposit your first £10 on the site.
Generally you won’t have to provide a Monkey Bingo bonus code to take advantage of promotions and offers, but keep an eye out on the site in case things change.
Jackpots and Promotions
You’re sure to go bananas over the jackpots and promotions on offer at Monkey Bingo, or Orango Offers as they are known on the site. If you are looking to sign up to a bingo site that rewards you not just for your first deposit but any further deposits you make, then you are in luck. Monkey Bingo, as well as offering their fab first deposit offer, also gives depositing players a bingo ticket bonus for their second and third deposits too! Users making their second deposit can look forward to receiving 60 free bonus bingo tickets, and for those depositing for the third time they get 30 free bingo tickets to play with in selected rooms on the site! But the monkey business does not stop there, oh no. MonkeyBingo also gives its customers a reward for every additional deposit they make in the form of free bingo tickets, the number of which varies according to your player level, plus exclusive access to the Jungle Reload bingo room! It is refreshing to see a site that rewards its players for their custom way beyond the first deposit welcome bonus.
There are tonnes of jackpot bingo games over at Monkey Bingo. Mondays are a big day over at the site with 2 huge jackpot games to choose from. First up at 9 pm on Monday evenings is Monkey Money. Tickets for the 90-ball bingo game are just 10 p each and the lucky winners will share a jackpot prize of a whopping £1,500! That’s not a bad start to the working week! If you have tried your luck at Monkey Money but sadly did not bag yourself the prize then have no fear.

What a way to start the weekend! Keep checking the Orango Offers page of the site for more information.
Monkey Bingo Mobile
There is not presently a Monkey Bingo app available to download at this point in time. That does not mean that you can’t enjoy your favourite games on the go, thought. Simply search for Monkey Bingo in your search engine on your mobile browser or input the URL and you are directed to the mobile-compatible version of the site available to play on your phone or tablet whilst you are on the go. We aren’t sure whether a Monkey Bingo app is on the cards for the future, but regardless the mobile version of the site is just as good as the Monkey Bingo online desktop version, so there may not be a need for one.
Monkey Bingo Games and Software
There’s no monkeying around when it comes to choice of bingo rooms on this site. There is an impressive 37 rooms in total! You will find the classic 75-ball and 90-ball bingo rooms that you know and love as well as 5 line and 52-5 games too if you fancy something different.
There are several free bingo rooms available to play at Monkey Bingo. Aside from the free rooms ticket prices range from just 1 p so there is something available for even the smallest of budgets. The bingo rooms at MonkeyBingo are all jungle-themed, and favourites include Monkey Madness, Cheeky Chimps, Orango Tango and Baboon Cash.
Some bingo rooms on the MonkeyBingo site are shared with other sites on the Cassava network including Ticket to Ride Room, Choo Choo Ticket and the Golden Ticket rooms. This means that these rooms are usually always busy, which is either a good thing or a bad thing, depending on what you are looking for in a site. Though the rooms are busier, this also means that the prizes are generally bigger because of there being more participants in the games.
If you are an online bingo newbie with little clue about the rules and the do’s and don’ts of the game, then Monkey Bingo has you covered. Head over to the Learner Room a special room just for the newbies where you can learn the ropes of playing online bingo before playing with your own money!
If slots are your thing then you will not be disappointed playing on this site. The Monkey Bingo slots selection is great, head to the Games button at the bottom of your page to check out the options. Here you will find tonnes of your favourite slots from providers ranging from Big Time Gaming to Netent and more. If you fancy your chances at bagging a life-changing win, then have a dabble at Monkey Bingo’s offering of progressive jackpot slots, including Shaman’s Dream and Millionaire’s Genie.
Deposits and Withdrawals
Now for a crucial part of this review – Banking. Is it simple to make deposits and withdrawals on the MonkeyBingo site? We reckon so. Depositing methods accepted on Monkey Bingo include credit and debit cards, wire transfer, Paysafecard and Paypal – A decent range of different deposit methods in our opinion though it is worth noting that Skrill and Neteller are not currently available. You can deposit just £5 at MonkeyBingo which is good news for those looking to play for the fun and the social side, though as touched on earlier you must deposit a minimum of £10 to be eligible for the Monkey Bingo no deposit welcome offer.
If you have been lucky on the site and now want to withdraw your winnings, head to the banking screen’s Withdraw section. The minimum withdrawal amount is just £5. Any withdrawals you make remain pending for an initial 48 hour period. You can cancel your request at any time before it is approved. Once approved the funds are sent to your desired funding method, though the time this takes depends on which method is used.
Monkey Bingo has a bustling online community. There is always a buzz in the in-game chat rooms and the chat room moderators are friendly and are always willing to help and often initiate games and competitions. Follow the site’s Facebook page for exclusive news, offers and promotion info.
If you are having some problems on the site or just have a question you want answering, then you have 3 options. Have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section of the site where all the most commonly posed queries and answers to these queries can be found. If you are still stuck then you can give the dedicated customer service helpline a call, or send an e-mail to the Monkey Bingo customer support e-mail address. Unfortunately, MonkeyBingo does not have an online instant chat feature at this time, which is somewhat disappointing as many of its competitor sites do. It is a really invaluable feature of a site for players to know they can get instant support when they need it.
Pros and Cons
So is Monkey Bingo UK the king of the online bingo jungle? We aren’t sure. Like other Monkey Bingo reviews out there, we do recognise the many positive of playing at this site, including the wide range of bingo rooms, the great jackpot offers throughout the week and the brilliant first deposit bonus plus second and third deposit bonuses and reload offers on every further deposit which shows the site really values its repeat customers. However, to be crowned bingo king, we feel there is definitely still some room for improvement. Negatives of playing on this site include the bingo-only nature of the bonuses for deposits, which might deter some players who like a spin on the slots too, the shared network games which some players do not enjoy as they are often busy, but, most prominent of all, the lack of online chat support feature. This site is one to watch, though, and with just a few tweaks could definitely be a major player in the online bingo world.
- Good first deposit bonus, plus rewards on second and third deposits plus reloadbonus
- Great range of bingo rooms options
- Brilliant promos and jackpots on offer throughout the week
- Some shared network games
