OnlineBingo.eu in a nutshell
You might think of bingo as a quintessentially British game, but did know you it originated in lottery-obsessed Italy, and made its way to UK shores via France?
Well, the signs are that the game is heading back across the channel, and helping spread the bingo gospel is OnlineBingo.eu.
OnlineBingo.eu has been helping players shout ‘house!’ online since 2003, and has gained a fine reputation for honouring large payouts on its jackpot games. As well as bingo, the website also offers a variety of slot and instant-win games. It also boasts a thriving community where you can socialise with fellow players in a chat room, and earn money for referring friends to the website.

What’s the look and feel of OnlineBingo.eu?
OnlineBingo.eu is a colourful website that’s easy to navigate. Our favourite section was the ‘winners stories’, where you learn that one player was surprised with a 7000 Euro cheque on her doorstep!
What games are available at OnlineBingo.eu?
You don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes to work out that the emphasis at OnlineBingo.eu is on bingo. You can play either 90-ball bingo (the traditional UK version which now seems to be gaining a lot of interest in plenty of European companies) or the 75-ball variety, which is common in the USA. In the latter, every number drawn will be somewhere on the three, 25-number 5×5 cards you buy for each game – it’s just where that’s important.
You can spice up your dabbing with a little hot slots and casino action, with a tidy handful of games from Betsoft.
All OnlineBingo.eu’s slots and casino software is supplied by Betsoft. The bingo software has been developed by the owners of OnlineBingo.eu, OneStop Gaming N.V., who also own WinaGames.com.
OnlineBingo.eu is browser-based, desktop only. Unfortunately, there’s no mobile version.
What promotions are available at OnlineBingo.eu?
Your career with your virtual dabber (the name for the thick pen bingo aficionados use at land-based casinos to dab off numbers on bingo cards) at OnlineBingo.eu begins with 10 Euros, absolutely free! This is then backed up with a one hundred percent matched deposit bonus up to €100.
First, let’s take a look at that ten Euro freebie. You can use the bonus on any bingo or casino game (except those with progressive jackpots), and any winnings you acquire from the bonus are held as bonus cash until you wager €250. There’s also a max cash-out value of €50.
The wagering requirements are the same (25x the bonus amount) for that 100 percent bonus, so if you max that out at €100, you’ll need to wager €2,500 before you can convert any winnings into real cash.
You have sixty days to meet your wagering requirements. Most casinos require you to wager around 30x your deposit over 30 days, so this is a good deal.
Each game contributes a different amount to wagering requirements:
- Bingo – 250%
- Slots, Scratch Cards, Keno, Hi-Lo, Bingo Bets, Community Games, Live Bingo, Multiplayer Slots, Pull Tabs, Video Bingo – 100%
- Video Poker – 50%
- Caribbean Poker, Poker (Table Games), Blackjack, Baccarat (Table Games), Craps, Roulette – 25%
Note, you may only have one active bonus at a time.
You can earn additional bonuses by collecting loyalty points while playing at OnlineBingo.eu, and of course the more you play the more points you earn. Bonus cash obtained via loyalty points is subject to the same wagering requirements as above.
You won’t have any problems doing the financial tango with OnlineBingo.eu, as you can use your Visa or MasterCard, or the online credit card Entropay. You can also use eWallet solutions Skrill and Neteller, plus pre-paid options such as Paysafecard. This is very popular in France.
Deposits range from €10 per transaction to €10,000 per day, and there’s a maximum withdrawal of €2,500 per twenty four hours.
The final verdict
With a generous welcome bonus and an engaging community, OnlineBingo.eu is the stand out bingo room for European players. It’s been running for 10 years, so you can be assured of its integrity. Bingo fans can also enjoy 3D slots from Betsoft whilst they wait for their numbers to be called out. The only qualms we have are that 80-ball bingo is missing, and you can’t play on your mobile. But that shouldn’t stop you from joining what is a superb bingo room!
