- How can I obtain my previous deposit and withdrawal history?
From the Homepage, select the drop down menu to the right of your name, select the Wallet tab and then there are a number of different options to choose from depending on the information you wish to view.
- I have an active bonus - can I withdraw?
Yes! You can withdraw your real balance at any time, even after accepting a bonus. We 'ring-fence' the proportional amount of your deposit that was used to claim a bonus, which means everything else remains unaffected. If you chose to withdraw funds that are 'ring-fenced' then you will lose all of your bonus and any winnings you have.
- What are the timescales for withdrawing funds?
Withdrawals are processed daily. When a withdrawal is pledged, it will remain in a ‘pending’ state for 24 hours, within this time you can choose to reverse your withdrawal and continue playing. Once your withdrawal has been processed, pending our normal security checks, the funds can take from 3-5 working days to show in your account, depending on your bank. The ‘pending’ period decreases as you progress up through our Loyalty levels. For more information on our Loyalty Scheme, please click here.

BONUS – GENERAL
- I have built up a balance and still have all of my bonus funded. Can I withdraw?
You can withdraw at any time, even with an active bonus, but you will forfeit all bonus funds and any winnings you have earned whilst the bonus has been active. You will need to complete all wagering requirements before you can claim any winnings. Visit the Wallet section of the website to view active bonuses and your remaining wagering requirements.

Yes. Our active and loyal players receive a birthday treat on their Birthday, which is 100% deposit match up to £100 and this will automatically credit, according to the amount you choose.
- How can I view my bonus wagering target?
From the Homepage select the drop down menu to the right of your name, select the Wallet tab, select Account then the Bonus icon and this will list your current active bonuses and the respective wagering requirements.
- I have a bonus balance showing when I am playing slots and casino, why can’t I see this when I switch to bingo?
When you accept any bonus it needs to be used on the specific game the promotion is for. It is not possible to use a Casino bonus on Bingo for instance. That said we regularly have bonuses across the site to make sure no one misses out, no matter what you like to play!
- What is the All Games Bonus figure within the Bingo Lobby?
If you had a bonus showing here it would apply to all the games available within the Bingo Lobby only. You have the option of opting for an ‘All Games Bonus’ or a ‘Bingo’ Bonus when you cash in your loyalty points. The All Games Bonus can't be used on games outside of the Bingo lobby.

Yes. You will need to contact the Customer Care Team as normal and they can ensure that you are not eligible for any future offers.

Yes. We do use bonus codes. It will be very clear when you need to use these so you shouldn't get confused.

Our games are visible on all our tabs. Simply go to the Games tab on any page and if you scroll down you will see all the Popular Now and New In Games. Alternatively, you can use the Search icon in the top right hand corner of the Games page to find your favourite. In addition, we have lots of progressive Jackpots and a Casino in our Live section.
