Bingo Diamond launched in the summer of 2011, and since then has gained steady recognition as a fine place to play not just bingo, but also all manner of side games like roulette, blackjack and slots - helped in this regard by the far-reaching renown of Microgaming as a gaming software provider. The site offers eight bingo rooms, along with some very tempting promotions to help you really make the most of them.
Bingo Diamond is based around eight different bingo rooms, called Broadway Room, Immortal Romance, Friendship, Sapphire, Speed, Harmony, Sunshine and Spinner. Enter one of these rooms, and you will be presented by - of course - a virtual bingo card, but also a chat room facility for having a natter with other players as the action unfolds. It all makes for a nicely communal atmosphere.
Admittedly, the Microgaming bingo software used isn't the very best or even most spectacular in the industry, but its interface is logically laid out and easy to use, while the associated bingo-calling sound effects won't annoy you too much.
Bingo Diamond isn't just about these bingo rooms, however, also offering as it does an extensive selection of other casino games, such as slots, roulette and blackjack, again powered by Microgaming, which is something of a dab hand in this area of online gaming. Indeed, with the site also serving up the likes of instant win games, scratch cards, casual games and a multiplayer VIP tournament, you might end up using Bingo Diamond as your main go-to online gaming site, even if you had only signed up to it in the first place for bingo.
The gaming software at Bingo Diamond is all 'instant play' in nature - in other words, the action takes place in your web browser, without the need to download anything separately. The site doesn't even have a mobile app - it's all optimised within the browser.
Registering as a member at Bingo Diamond is as quick as easy as it gets on bingo sites - you just need to fill in and submit a simple form that asks for such details as your first and last name, email address, postal address and so on. When you make your first deposit, you will also be sent an email with a verification link to click on. You will then be able to get straight on with the bingo!
The deposit methods accepted at Bingo Diamond are very much the obvious ones, namely Maestro, MasterCard Debit, Visa Debit, Neteller, Skrill and Paysafecard. We were surprised to see no mention of PayPal, but as long as you have a debit card, this part of the site shouldn't pose you many problems.
We were a little disappointed by the sparseness of the customer support offering at Bingo Diamond - not so much in terms of the access that you have to their staff, but more with regard to the associated resources that other bingo sites often provide much more of.
While some sites offer 'Getting Started' guides as well as informative FAQs sections, Bingo Diamond doesn't have either. On the positive side, the site does have a very useful 'live chat' feature, and although you can't access it 24/7, the actual hours - 10am-10:30pm, 7 days a week - are close enough. Alternatively, you could just send the staff team an email, which is easy to do via a simple online form that the site has helpfully provided.
There may be superior bingo sites out there as far as both customer support and accepted payment options are concerned, but in most other areas, Bingo Diamond does very well. It's an interesting and rewarding place to play bingo and many other fun online games 'on the go' via a mobile device.
