Bingo Funland Status: Not Recommended

Bingo Funland Casino

Overview

Review last updated: June 2017.

Bingo Funland Casino are a relatively new brand on the market and they are part of the Cassava Enterprises Ltd (888 UK Ltd) group of casinos.  Currently they hold licenses with both Gibraltar and the UKGC.  They provide a limited range of slots games from IGT (Wagerworks), Net Entertainment and Dragonfish. Their web design is bold and bright making heavy use of psychedelic colours and playing with the stereotype of fairy tale dwarf characters: toadstools, rainbows, dark forests and mining for precious gemstones.  They currently have no complaints logged at any of the major gambling portals.

Trustworthiness

 - 2 / 10

Bingo Funland Casino have no outstanding issues at any of the major casino complaint portals.

(-2)Bingo Funland include a dormancy clause that we find to be of a predatory nature and as such have been listed as Not Recommended. The term allows the casino to seize all funds if there is no activity on a player's account for 180 consecutive days. They explicitly state that such actions will be taken without further notice from the casino. Dormancy clauses should be used to allow the casino to charge a small maintenance fee for the upkeep of an inactive account, not to justify seizures of full balances. Exceptions to this would be where the balance seized would be transferred to the regulator for holding, or donated to a charitable institution after a period of a year, and only after reasonable efforts have been made to alert the account owner of the potential seizure.

(-1)Bingo Funland Casino also have a clause in their Terms and Conditions which states that Progressive or Casino Jackpots will be paid out in 24 monthly installments. Since Progressive Jackpot winnings come from a central pool and not casino funds there is no good reason for doing this and again we find this to be of a predatory nature.

(-1)Bingo Funland include a clause in their Terms and Conditions which states that players cannot claim bonuses with other casinos that are part of their casino network and that they are under no obligation to refund balances in such cases - but they do not give a list of such venues to aid the player in not making this mistake - it can be difficult for professionals in the industry to connect sister casinos - far less lay people.

(-1)Due to their website design we are unable to monitor changes to the Terms and Conditions pages at Bingo Funland.

Bingo Funland are run by the Cassava group (888 Holdings). This group have proven to be unwilling to engage with 3rd party dispute mediation on several occasions over the years. Alongside this they have been known to confiscate player funds citing only vague spirit of the bonus terms.

The extended group of operators that 888 run has been reported to refuse to pay out player winnings if they claim bonuses at multiple properties within their group, but fails to provide players with reasonable information regarding which properties are in their group. This policy also appears to have been applied to gambling protection self-exclusions where checks have not been carried out at registration, only once the player has won. This means that if a player self-excluded from any property in this group, if they sign-up with another property not realising that this property is owned by 888, the player is then in a position where they can lose, but if they win they will not be paid.

The software that the 888 properties run on - Dragonfish - runs a Baccarat game that we found to mis-advertising the pay out of 2 of the bets on the table. We repeatedly tried to contact this software provider to correct this issue and received no response.

The 888 group have engaged in what appears to be the closure of profitable affiliate accounts using general account closure terms reportedly due to the affiliate not generating enough new leads, though the required amount remains unspecified. We assume that the amount of new leads exceeded the amount required by their minimum activity clause which is the understood minimum. We view this as an unethical business practice.

Licensing

 - 8 / 10

BingoFunland hold the following gambling licenses :

  • United Kingdom Gambling Commission - The UKGC are widely considered to be the most reputable regulators involved in the online gambling market. They do not manage complaints for players directly, instead requiring their operators to appoint a UKGC accredited Alternative Dispute Resolution service. As such the value of this license for players depends largely on the professionalism of the ADR service utilised. BingoFunland currently use eCOGRA. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies here.
  • Gibraltar Gaming Commission - The GGC is one of the more reputable online gaming regulators, but we are aware of a serious software issue where they failed to uphold their own technical standards. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies here.

The following countries are disallowed from playing at Bingo Funland Casino: Antigua, Belgium, Denmark, France and its territories, Gibralter, Israel, Italy, Spain, Turkey, United States and its territories.

Slots RTP

Bingo Funland Casino provide the RTPs for all of their slots games.

Comp Points

Bingo Funland Casino do offer a comp points system but it is redeemed to bonuses which will carry a wagering requirement in line with casino Terms and Conditions - it is not convertible to cashback. Points are accrued at a rate of 1 for every £2 wagered on slots and they are redeemable to bonus at a rate of 1000 to £1. This comp points system is far weaker than the Playtech system we use as our indicator for 7/10.

Closing Thoughts

Bingo Funland Casino are Not Recommended at ThePogg as a result of their dormancy clause which we perceive to be predatory in nature.The term allows the casino to seize all funds if there is no activity on a player's account for 180 consecutive days. They explicitly state that such actions will be taken without further notice from the casino. Dormancy clauses should be used to allow the casino to charge a small maintenance fee for the upkeep of an inactive account, not to justify seizures of full balances. Exceptions to this would be where the balance seized would be transferred to the regulator for holding, or donated to a charitable institution after a period of a year, and only after reasonable efforts have been made to alert the account owner of the potential seizure. Bingo Funland Casino also have a clause in their Terms and Conditions which states that Progressive or Casino Jackpots will be paid out in 24 monthly installments. Since Progressive Jackpot winnings come from a central pool and not casino funds there is no good reason for doing this and again we find this to be of a predatory nature. Bingo Funland Casino include a clause in their Terms and Conditions which states that players cannot claim bonuses with other casinos that are part of their casino network and that they are under no obligation to refund balances in such cases - but they do not give a list of such venues to aid the player in not making this mistake - it can be difficult for professionals in the industry to connect sister casinos - far less lay people. We had some issues navigating the bonus terms on this site and as such we were unable to determine accurately whether any sign-up bonus for slots is offered and what its parameters are. Players should be aware that as a result of Bingo Funland's web design we are unable to monitor for changes to their Terms and Conditions.
