Facts about Bucky Bingo: Founded in 1970, Buckingham Bingo operates nine popular branches throughout the country and to this day remains at the forefront of the UK entertainment sector. Bucky Bingo, the main online division, launched in 2007 and is proving to be very popular in its own right. The site even boasts its own fun-loving mascot, BB, and 70s theme. This is reflected in the popular ‘ABC, it’s easy as 1-2-Free! sessions’ on Wednesday nights, where every third game is free.
The ability to call on decades of bingo experience is a big part of what makes Bucky Bingo such an attractive website and so appealing to Bingo enthusiasts. Players also know they are teaming up with a name they can trust, because Buckingham Bingo is a recognised member of the Bingo Association, which represents UK licensed bingo clubs.
Bucky Bingo knows how to deliver a truly entertaining experience. As well as a spectacular 100% First Deposit Bonus up to £250 and competitive jackpots for full houses, the site boasts loads of changing promotions that keep things fresh. Members have won fantastic cash prizes and promotional prizes simply by depositing and playing a small amount in a single month. As the site’s motto says, ‘We treat loyalty like royalty’.

Bucky is home to Penny Bingo, Big Money Bingo, Bingo Linx and plenty of other options.
Away from bingo, there are plenty more games to keep you occupied. Stylish slots such as Atlantis Gold, Snow Queen’s Magic, Mayan Mania, Clover Rollover and Cleopatra’s Chest are immensely popular titles that can even be played while you’re waiting for the next group session to start. The jackpots on some of these side games have now passed the £2 million mark. The scratch cards Bingo Scratch, Big Bounty, Wintry Wonderland and Arabian Delights are also perfect when time is short. Meanwhile, casino fans will rejoice at the inclusion of blackjack and roulette.
Review of Promotions: Bucky Bingo excels when it comes to offering special promotions. Every weekend, for instance, the site gives away fantastic cash prizes ranging from £10 to £1,000 to randomly selected players who do nothing more than buy a bingo ticket. On a similar theme, Bounce Back Tuesdays and TV Thursdays reward gamers who take part midweek. There are even cash prizes for getting involved in the chat rooms.
