Butlers Bingo is operated by Broadway Gaming and powered by Microgaming software. This site can divide opinions but here at Keep Calm, we think it’s the bees knees. It is slightly old fashioned in its looks, with more text than flashy graphics. But what some people call “dated”, we call traditionally stylish. This is a truly classy site. As you would expect from a real life butler, helpful and unobtrusive guidance is provided throughout the site. From its understated royal purple colour scheme through to its smooth running 90 and 75 ball bingo rooms, this site exudes sophistication and high quality service.

If you are new to online bingo, this is truly the best place to start. Every game carries comprehensive instructions in a “How to Play Bingo” guide. This includes a feature on chat room etiquette (how classy); some useful chat phrases (great if you’re new to the online version of the game); a guide to game strategy (unusually helpful and up front for an online gaming site) and a glossary of technical bingo terms. There’s even a complete list of the traditional lingo for all 90 bingo numbers. I don’t think I’ve seen that on any other rival site. The Butler is happy to give you helpful tips throughout the site, and if he can’t help, there’s always his loyal assistant Astrid – you can chat live with her from morning until late evening, or contact her by e-mail with your bingo queries.

But this site is not just good for newbies, more experienced players will enjoy the service too. There are some great alternative instant games for those who want a bit more than just bingo. The prizes and jackpots are very healthy – one lucky player won over £60k just the week before our visit. The classy theme continues throughout – it’s not just a home page re-design: The Butler’s VIP scheme is not just the usual levels of vulgar precious metals or ostentatiously showy diamonds, oh no. You start at Lords and Ladies, before progressing through Duke and Duchess to Prince and Princesses before finally achieving the top tier: Kings and Queens.

Banking facilities unfortunately do not include Coutts, but you can use Visa and MasterCard, Maestro, Solo and Switch. There’s even some of those modern e-payment methods to choose from. The minimum deposit is £10. Wagering Requirements are a simple 5 x your bonus amount. So if you make a deposit of £10 and receive a bonus of £20, you must spend £100 (5 x £20) of your own money before you can make a withdrawal without penalty. This applies to bingo only – further restrictions apply if you are playing other instant games. The minimum withdrawal amount is £20. You can expect your funds to take around a week to reach your account.

This site is licensed and registered on the Mediterranean island of Malta, so it is regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. Players based in the United Kingdom can therefore play with confidence that it is not just the Butler that is looking after them. Keep Calm have always been an upholder of traditional values and classy, timeless service, so we are happy to recommend Butlers Bingo.
