Fancy a bit of Downton Abbey living? Tea in the library brought on a silver salver. The butler at Butler’s Bingo
looks a bit more dashing than Carlisle and comes with a pretty maid called Astrid. He’s not bringing the tea either, but some great games on the Microgaming system and a 250% first deposit bonus. The Butler and Astrid will guide you around a site that’s got lots to offer. There are loads of great promotions, good value games and a warm welcome for new players. The site design is OK, but feels a little old fashioned with lots of text. It might be a struggle to take everything in on smaller screens.
Broadway Gaming are the site owners and they’ve been running since 2010. Their four brands are Butler’s Bingo, Glossy Bingo, Rehab Bingo and Dotty Bingo. The Microgaming software they use is tried and tested. They’re licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority.
Signing up is all done on one page and is very simple. The Butler will take your personal details but no payment unless you decide to deposit.
You can play 90-ball and 75-ball bingo with the Butler.
There are lots of other games at Butlers Bingo. Slots, casino games, skill games and multi-player games can be accessed from the lobby and played in the bingo room. Big progressive jackpot slots include The Dark Knight, Mega Moolah Isis, Major Millions and King Cashalot.
There’s a progressive jackpot that starts at £5,000 with the call-count increasing every two weeks. There are other smaller progressives. A weekend of big prizes starts with a £1,000 Megapot on Friday; £10k on Saturdays and another £1,000 game on Sundays.
The game room is a bold purple. Cards are selected and marked in a large central window above a call board. Chat is to the top left underneath your account details. Details are to the right of this. In the bottom left is a busy mini-games window. Busy is a bit of a theme at Butlers Bingo, and the room can look cluttered on a small screen. The lobby screen shows what games are on, how many players are in the room, how much you can win and how much tickets cost.
Promotions are mainly concentrated on daily, weekly and monthly big jackpot games. There are lots of them, but the layout is confusing and some of the explanations aren’t very clear.
There’s a good chat scene at Butlers Bingo and the chat hosts know what they’re talking about.
There’s a loyalty scheme, but there’s no progression, just points that can be cashed in as bonus funds.

Bingo Bonkers Verdict
The games are good and the welcome offer is tempting. You couldn’t ask for more jackpots. However, there’s not a huge choice of games to play and 5X wagering requirements and seven day waits on withdrawals with the requirement to produce documents make it seem like the Butler’s a bit too keen on hanging on to your money. The Butler has some attractions, but would you want this site to be your servant all the time? Give the bell a ring and see how you get on.
