Butlers Bingo uses the popular Microgaming platform as a base for its games and has quite a lot to offer new and experienced players.
The creators of the site have gone for a luxury pampering feel where players can feel like they have their own bingo butler who attends to their every gaming need.
Look and Feel
The site has a really simple yet very plush and professional look and will give a great impression to new players when they arrive.
The site’s mascot is a suave looking butler who, along with a bottle of bubbly, features in the sparkling logo at the top of the sites home page.
We really like the classy monogrammed purple wallpaper which definitely gives the impression the designers have made an effort with this bingo site.
The dominant colour is most definitely purple with touches of gold on the menus and unlike some sites we could mention, there are splashes of useful information on the front page.
There’s a handy news feed down on the left, some basic info about recent winners on the right and a useful countdown also on the right which lets you know when the next game will start.
The front page features the usual menu bar at the top with links to the all important promotions page as well as help, VIP area, playing guides and the side games page.
The main space on the page is unfortunately taken up by a banner and it’s a shame that so many sites use this technique.
It’s so much more player friendly when the front page has some useful information on it which shows what’s happening on the site such as real time game info and maybe a bit of chat action.
If you’re new to the site you’ll have to sign up first but it’s an easy process which just requires a few details like email address, name, DOB, address and the password you want to use.
Butlers Bingo has a small selection of rooms offering the normal 75 and 90 ball game types with the paid tickets costing from 1p upwards.
Once you’re in to the site all the information you will need about the upcoming games will be available in the lobby so you make the best choice.
The games run at a fast pace on Butlers Bingo so it may not be to everyone’s taste and the full on traditional bingo terms are used extensively which will be music to the ears of more experienced players.
The bingo room page itself is as you might expect well laid out and clear and the yellow and purple colours make it one of the more readable room screens we’ve seen.
The chat is over to the left with a scrolling box of side games underneath it and the card and bingo balls are on the right.
To the left of the card itself is shown you ticket balance, game time left and ticket price plus some other useful bits.
At the top of the right hand section you’ll find some more important info including the prize pot amounts for each of the lines and FH which is handy to know.
Games Other Than Bingo
The quality of the site and the software it’s based on both combine to guarantee the side game selection is varied and of a great standard.
These games can be accessed from within the individual rooms or from the Casino item on the main menu.
There’s a great range of video slots, regular slots and progressive slots on offer plus blackjack, video poker, roulette, scratchcards and some other instant win games.
Being a site that shares its software with others means there will be some side games which you may have come across before.
There is a very wide selection to choose from and it includes popular games like Mega Moolah and the Playboy slot.
Offers and Promotions
For starters Butlers Bingo offer a £10 bingo money voucher with no deposit which means that although you have to register first, you can start playing with some money before you even make a deposit.
The sites offers are fairly modest but good enough to make you want to return and although there aren’t any massive prize giveaways there is enough to hold the average players interest.
Apart from the monthly and weekly deals the main attraction is the 300 percent first deposit bonus you get which sets you up nicely for a good few free bingo games.
There is a ‘refer a friend’ bonus available of £10 but you have to email the site with a request to get it and certain conditions apply.

Butler’s has plenty of progressive jackpots as well as fixed jackpots in some games which can be as high as £1000 so it’s important to keep an eye on what they are offering during a given week or month.
The site has a really good chat scene going and so new players will instantly feel right at home even if they don’t know anything about the game.
The chat hosts are friendly and helpful and are always on hand to help with any problems the players might have.
Lots of help on a variety of subjects can be found via the Support tab on the main menu including info about bingo lingo, chat phrases and the game in general.
