Specialising in Bingo in particular, it offers a mobile and desktop experience for players and is powered by Dragonfish. Though to some the website may initially seem unattractive, the mobile counterpart contrasts with a bright, pleasing aesthetic and a contemporary design. Bingo-nuts will certainly find it addictive but does it appeal to other players?

Bingo lovers will have a ball with Bingo Funland (as its implied in the title) with games that will surely keep them on their toes for hours. By purchasing 10p-£1 per card, players get to participate in 9 variations of 75 or 90 ball bingo while chatting to their friends and earning big winnings of up to £50 jackpot.
In addition to bingo, Funland provides with in-game slots which players can exploit while waiting for a new session to begin.

For all new players at Funland, there is a 200% first deposit bonus from £10 to £100 with access to the free bingo room. This is good for anyone new to online gambling who isn’t entirely sold on putting down a deposit. The down side is that this is all there is in terms of bonuses, Bingo Funland could do with some more enticing ones to attract new players as simple access to the bingo rooms and a bonus that many sites seem to offer hardly stands out from the crowd.
All bingo games are available once players deposit £10. Bingo Funland also has a lot of prizes up for grabs every 15 minutes of up to £2,000. By putting in £10 every 7 days you will be allowed to maintain access too all the bingo rooms — fair enough if you try out the site and no longer decide it’s for you.
Here are some of the promotions Funland offers:
- Late Night Show –- Earn up to £100 in real money can be won by 50 lucky players every night at 00:45. There are no wagering requirements!
- Fundies Fifty — Access this game every Tuesday and Thursday for a chance to win up to £50 in prize money. Tickets are 10p a person.
- The Big £10k — Prizes for this promotion are HUGE. £750 for a full house, £500 for two lines and £250 for one line. This promotion occurs on the 10th of every month at 20:00.
- Spin-tastic! — Win some free spins every 72 hours. This promotion operates between Sunday and Thursday.
Deposits & Withdrawals
Like most mobile casinos, there are various ways to deposit and withdraw a certain amount. They include Debit/Credit card, PayPal, Neteller and Skrill.
The minimum deposit players can make is £10 however the minimum withdrawal comes at around £20. The waiting process is a rather long one of around 5-7 working days. This might punish players a little as they may have debts they desperately need to pay off. You can request your money through the same methods as depositing.

What’s so special about Bingo Funland? Variety.
Many players may look at the Bingo Funland website and believe it to be just like any other bingo site with chatrooms and dedicated time slots. In fact, many may examine the website and be put off by its rather rudimentary design and vaguely early-2000’s aesthetics.
What Funland has in bucket-loads, however, is variety in bingo rooms. Unlike many other mobile casinos that simply adopted bingo to cash-in on a game growing in popularity with only 2-3 bingo room to boast, Funland had bingo in mind when it was first conceived and is home to 9 bingo rooms for players to chose from. This puts it at an obvious advantage over its competitors even if its overall layout does not.
Also unique to Funlands is probably its in-game slot feature that allows players to entertain themselves while their numbers are being called out. Far from being a broken plug-in, however, this feature is a stroke of genius on the developer’s part since it actually appears smoothly above the bingo table whilst playing without obstructing the player’s numbers.
This gives it even more brownie points considering the ‘gnome’ theme of the whole site is rather flat and childish.

Other Casinos like Bingo Funland
Mainstage Bingo — This site is pretty new in the bingo playing world and offers a simple mobile experience just like Bingo Funland. Where it differs, however, is its clear lack of variety in bingo rooms and its jarring over reliance on slot games. Anyone happening to glance at it would think it was just a general casino. The bonuses, however, are better with a 500% deposit bonus.
Game Village — If bingo’s definitely your thing, you will not be let down with this website. Like Bingo Funland, it has a better variety in bingo rooms and offers a vibrant community. There’s 70 slots games as well but they are certainly not the main feature. Some may prefer its more modern aesthetic over Funland’s archaic one also.
If this is your first dive into online bingo then Funland is certainly for you. It has a commendable welcome bonus and decent flexibility when it comes to operating on mobile devices. Its design, however, leaves much to be desired with inconsistent hyperlinks and clumsy navigation.
The withdrawal waiting period is also rather irksome. But you’d be hard-pressed to find any other bingo site with more than seven rooms and Funland does not disappoint on that front.
