BingoFunHouse Review

Sites always advise its players to read and understand their rules before you play. In my opinion, the most important rules that all players should check are:

1. Play through or wagering rules. This tells you how much money you have to wager before you are eligible for a cashout.

2. Multiple Account Rules. Not following this rule could cost you a cash out and your accounts disabled and closed.

3. What you need to verify before they approve your cashout. When you register at any site make sure the information you submit can be verified!

4. How often you need to deposit to keep your account in good standing.

Bear in mind, that it’s seldom a problem getting your money into a site! At some sites it only becomes a problem when you try and get your winnings out. Be prepared for Security checks and other ploys that delay your cashout. This is a great reason to go over a sites rules before you deposit. You will find that rules vary greatly from site to site.

With that in mind lets LQQK at the rules on BingoFunHouse.com.

Well here I am on their landing page http://www.bingofunhouse.com/ Remember! We are a potential player and we want to review their rules before we play there. Can any of you see a tab that will take us to the rules?

At this point I would be wondering why I can’t find them! A Savvy Player would maybe click out of this site and go elsewhere. But because it’s an Industry Standard to post the sites rules, they are there some place. So lets LQQK at the options their landing page provides.

1. How it works?

2. About us

3. Promotions

4. Activities

5. News

6. Contact us

There is also an Online Support Icon. So where would you LQQK for their rules? Lets try Online Support! That sounds like a good place to start.

Up pops a chat screen asking you to type in your name. After a wait the following message appeared “ Please wait for a site operator to respond.” After another long wait you get “All operators are currently assisting others. Thanks for your patience. An operator will be with you shortly.” After waiting several more minutes and no support showing up, I disconnected from live chat. They must all be on a break!

So lets get back to our other options. After picking Contact us from the list we see it’s another dead end. So lets follow the list by the numbers. How It Works brings us to a page called Frequently asked questions (FAQ). Anyway! Under this topic you find info on the following topics:

•Why BingoFunHouse.com™?
•How do I get started?
•How do I play?
•My game froze up. Do I get a refund?
How do I collect my winnings?
•What are the rules?
•Who can participate?
•Free Money Rules
•Bonus Rules
•Legality
•Ownership and credit card charges
•Chatroom rules and etiquette
•Chat game rules
•Deposit Bonuses
•Chat points
•Referral Program
•Security
•VIP Levels
•Funding

From the above list lets LQQK at How do I collect my winnings? Near the bottom you will find their Wagering Rules
Quote:
Players that have ONLY played Bingo games must wager 5 times the amount of their deposit plus bonuses (Live, Regular and RBs) in order to be eligible to request a payout. Customers that have played casino games after their last deposit must wager 40 times that amount.


Personally! I would not recommend this site for play because their rules a way to favorable to the house. Lets do some math:

If you are a new player and make a $50 deposit, they give you a 200% bonus ($100). So your first deposit is $50 + $100 = $150 if you only play Bingo you need to wager (play) $150 X 5 = $750 before you are eligible for a cash out.

Now be aware that if you try any of their casino games even once, Your play through is greatly increased to 40 times your Deposit. So use the same deposit of $50 + $100 =$150 X 40 = $6000. Can you see where Wagering $6,000 greatly favors the house? Believe it or not! But there are Bingo Sites out there that have no wagering rules at all.

BingoFunHouse Management asked that I review their site and consider taking them off our Black List. They claim they are under new management and have cleaned up their act. Granted! We have not received a complaint about them, in some time. But a search did come up with some new complaints.

casino-crush.com Oct 22, 2010

SiteJabber.com 7/19/2010

All in all! I can’t get past this sites excessive play through. They have given me no real indication of change. I see no reason to upgrade this sites status.

If the Management of BingoFunhouse want to come here and refute my review of their site they are more than welcomed to do so.

LOL, you guys like to think of yourselves as the watch dogs of the industry, but have you noticed you have no one coming to read or post?
Seriously, your review of my site.. did it include talking with the real players?
Did you guys go and actually ask the real people that play with us if they are ever able to get payouts?
Do our players consider the rollover too much, or do they consider it fair?

And then you post links to sites, but not the link to the complaint as you call them. Still I decided to invest my time looking for the so called complaints and found:

In Sitejabber.com: a negative comment, from someone who states that we close accounts with no reason, who gives no detail of when, why or who?

http://www.sitejabber.com/reviews/www.b ... 0e2db2e05f

Please make sure to read all comments from other people too!

And and in casinocrush.com: In the bingo section (which makes it bingocrush.com, by the way): All I saw was a comment from a player that got $600 from us, and it was a very positive review!

http://www.bingo-crush.com/winners-winn ... 600-a.html


Come on guys, get serious!



I'd much rather see you dedicated to getting back all the people you used to have, instead of continuing to pose as "the real thing" with no one visiting your site!

Hi Ginger, NO ma'am we do not think of ourselves as THE watchdogs of the industry. Just watchdogs with a common interest of seeing, someday, a happy playground for both players and sites.

I played at Bingofunhouse for 5+ years when it first opened, even BEFORE they had any chat games, hosts OR playthroughs! You site may have been taken over by new management, and obviously in need of reviews or you wouldn't have asked us to review you, but you are well above the "industry standards", concerning playthrough requirements. Please be aware, part of what we do is to pass our education, bought with time and perserverance, on to not only the players, but the sites as well. Would you NOT want to know if there was a better deal out there for something you wanted to purchase?

Personally, I am a "comparison shopper" when looking at the market, and I tend to feel like surely I am not the only one.

It is not our job to question your players, but it is YOURS! It is not our job to search your players out to get a review from them. The type of reviews we do are based only on rules and what we consider a "player friendly" establishment.
There is a ton of room here for your players to put a review about your site... you might want to suggest they do so, if you want the bingo playing world to know about you. It is the players who let other players know what a site is about. It is the players that other players listen to.

We do not feel, obviously to your chagrin, that a 40% playthrough on slots or video poker is player friendly. That does NOT mean you are not a good site. That does NOT mean you don't pay out with few or no hassles. That does NOT mean that you have players who disagree with your playthrough rules. It simply means WE FEEL it is too high and we know other sites offer better odds.

What sitejabber does and how they handle their reviews is their business. I would address them, if I were you, to get this settled. If you want specifics, ask them!

This is what we found at casino crush:

my bingo account got disabled because i've cashed out to much.can you believe that cr?p.I can't help it that am lucky there.they should be happy that my cashouts amounts went down since they changed software,lol.they said that stated in the rules that they can close my account at any time for any reason at there discreation.so they will send me my balance of 140.00 and i forfiet my RB's of 1,332.i never thought in a million years that my acct. would be closed for cashing out to much.it's bad enough trying to find a place you can trust to pay without a hassel now i have to be careful of cashing out to much.places have no problems taking your money, just paying it out.


If you use the link I provided above you can see it was written by Shirlsplay, who, in fact, played at BFH when I was there. I remember her well! What she states rings a bell because if you look here:

posted Feb 10, 2006 .... Charlie the manager at BingoFunhouse at the time) said:

This often leads to abuses by players who feel it is
their "right" to cash out at every opportunity they have. I'm sorry but it is not their "right" and when they flat out tell us they are here solely to "make money" we have the "right" and will take appropriate action to prevent this abuse


Let me ask you, does your site ever close accounts of those who withdraw more than you think they should? Do you deny the post at bingocrush being true? I assure you, I can take the time to gather any documented information emails, help tickets etc) Shirls may have to find the truth. Truth is what you seek, is it not?


Last but not least:

We wish the very same for you :) Show players requirements closer to industry standards, and you just may accomplish it! Thanks for your response and good luck at your site... send those players!! We would love to see good reviews!

I think you grossly underestimate our readership! We are not a chat room where people congregate at a specific time. We have members from many countries and time zones. They come when it’s convenient for them, read and leave. Many don’t even take the time to login.

As far as people reading your review, last I checked the topic had 77 views, not bad for a topic less than a day old! Although BPU is a Forum and open to discussion, we have evolved into a Bingo Players Resource Center where players can come and read our forums and become Savvy Bingo Players before they deposit..

At BPU they learn that they there are sites that have no play through requirements at all, amongst other things. You may have good intentions but your wagering rules are a joke, compared to industry standards.

I agree with Sissy! You need not worry about our membership, be more concerned with getting your players deposits somewhere near they were in the past. HINT: Perhaps lowering your wager requirements will boost your player count. But hey! What do I know.

LOL Ginger, sorry you couldn't find anything to do better than take another jab at us. Evidently 170+ views in two days doesn't speak to you. People are reading whether you see them here or not! You run your business and we will run ours.... let us know should you decide to get more within the industry standards on your playthrough and we will take another look.

I would be more than happy to speak with any of your players you wish to provide email addresses for, or may I ask if you would allow this to happen in your chatrooms? I do hope our efforts to appease you does not result in yet more unanswered questions.


Have a great day!

I don’t see any thing posted by a BingoFunHouse.com Player yet. If you are so confident that your wagering rules are fair, one would think you would be asking them to flock here to support you. But we both know that more than likely that wont happen because you don’t want whatever players you do have to know how your Wagering Rules compare to other sites. 40X wagering is about the highest I can remember seeing in some time. LQQK us up again when you drop your wagering requirements to at least close to the industry standard. You might even see your player base increase.

Apparently BingoGinger can’t offer an explanation of why her site has such high wagering requirements as compared to other US Bingo Sites! This speaks volumes to me about how player friendly BingoFunHouse really is. :-q :-q

Yeah well... what can I say people from BPU, I do noit see posts from anyone, either my players or your customers! Haven't you noticed this conversation is between you administrators and me only?

You say 170 views... I say 2 active posts in your site... both kept alive by you and only in this one someone else... me!

I rest my case!

I simply don't understand how B1ngoGinger can't see that there are a lot of members like me who come on here for help and advice.
But we don't actually post on a regular basis.
I'm sure like me they come have a quick read and then carry on with their day.
Why don't you just answer the question you have been asked B1ngoGinger???

Been getting some promo emails from bfh lately. If they want to GIVE a few free bb's to play with, it is good for a few minutes of amusement, BUT as far as depositing there...Might as well tear up dollar bills, toss them in the air and see how many you can catch to entertain yourself. The playthru is outrageous on slots! Have seen that amount (40 x) in a few casinos that are definitely NOT recommended by credible review sites. You must wager 15 times your depo to get the bonus and 5 times your depo for a withdrawal. which, by the way comes with an unstated "fee".

This is what got me! software that can change the odds? Does that exist? Sounds like they know of such software or would not be warning PLAYERS not to use it! They want to keep that to themselves maybe!lol

BingoFunHouse.com™ reserves the right to disable any accounts that are suspicious of running software that in any way changes the odds, or any other suspicious activity. When a customer has successfully created an account she/he agrees with all the terms of the site, including that management can close any account without notice.

I play slots often and I definitly did not find this a good thing: If the game server did not record it? LOL So ya win a big one and too bad for you the game server did not record it when the game froze! So if you spent a buck or 2 on that pull you get 4 back instead of the won amount. Who can say with surety that any site can not halt or freeze a game at will?

-My Slot Machine froze. Do I get a refund?
Consult with one of our CMs. If the game server recorded the result of that pull then you have already been credited, if you won it. If the game server did not record the result of the pull then you will be refunded double for that pull. Again, please open a ticket to request this and provide us with the game number, and/or time and machine you were playing on when it happened.

Mostly, I find that bfh has a LOT of rules and I , personally would not describe that alone as player friendly. I am guesstimating to read all the rules that have any bearing on ease and propriety of playing would take at least an hour to read. That is TOO much!
