Wheel of Slots Overview

At Lucky Cow Bingo, we offer one of the most interesting welcome offers around with a qualifying deposit resulting in a spin on our Wheel of Slots. We get asked questions on this offer all the time so for this week’s blog post we thought we would explain in a little more detail how the Wheel of Slots works and the types of prizes that you can win when you spin it for the first time.

What is the Wheel of Slots?

The Wheel of Slots is our way of welcoming new roomies to our online bingo platform. We want you to settle in as quickly as possible which is why we offer you the chance to spin the wheel when you deposit £10 for the first time. The best bit is that the £10 is yours to keep to spend on any of the games on our site.

The wheel itself offers all new depositing players a prize and each time you spin the wheel you will reveal a number. This number indicates how many free spins that you have won and the games that they are valid on. These will then be added to your balance where they can be spent on qualifying games. Easy right?

Unlocking the Spin Bank

The Spin Bank tracks how many spins you currently have on the wheel. The Spin Bank is located at the top of the site and each time you spin the Wheel of Slots any prizes will automatically be added to your spin bank. There are numerous ways of collecting spins and we will describe these below so you know exactly how you can spin our famous Wheel of Slots.

How to Unlock the Wheel

There are three main ways to unlock the Wheel of Spins. Some players don’t realise that you can actually unlock the Wheel even after you have deposited for the first time.

  1. Make a 1st Deposit – New players can automatically earn a spin immediately. This is super simple and all you have to do is deposit £10 into your brand new Lucky Cow Bingo account to receive your very first spin.
  2. Top Up Your Account – That’s right, each time you deposit on the site you will qualify for another free spin which will be added to your Spin Bank balance. Easy!
  3. Complete a Quest – You will be able to complete different quests that are set out by the Lucky Cow Bingo admins. These vary and can be found under the “Spin the Wheel” tab in the bingo lobby. Each time you complete a quest you will earn a free spin on the Wheel of Slots.

Rewards

You can claim up to 500 free spins when you spin the wheel and normally these are for the following games:

Hopefully, it won’t be long before your Spin Bank is topped up!

Try Some of our Playson Slots!

It may have gone slightly under the radar but we recently added some news slots to our already brilliant library of games. We have games from some of the leading slot developers across the web and some of our latest titles have been developed by Playson.

This company may not be as prolific as NetEnt or Eyecon but they certainly are beginning to leave their mark with a whole host of excellent titles to try. We’ve added a few to our lobby so which ones should you try first? If you’re a new player then remember to spin or wheel of slots before you try these games.

Art of the Heist

The life of a cat burglar isn’t always glamorous but Art of the Heist offers you the chance to play for lots of loot in this crime-themed slot machine. There are some very clever bonus features on this game and the graphics are particularly impressive.

You can spin it from around 25p and there are free spins and a secret treasure room to unlock as well which offers you the chance to uncover some big cash prizes. There is a maximum jackpot of 300X your line wager up for grabs and it really is one of our favourite new games on the site.

Down the Pub

If you live in the UK then there is every chance that you enjoy a night down the pub just as most of us do. There are 15 paylines on this game with plenty of kegs of ale to interact with. Down the Pub is one of the funniest games that we have played in a while and our roomies are already enjoying it.

There is a fruit machine bonus on this game which offers a range of jackpots and multipliers as well as a classic free spins bonus round. Some of the higher-value symbols include kegs of ale and glasses of whisky. It’s great fun and a real light-hearted effort from Playson.

Lucky Pirates

There are many slots dedicated to swashbuckling buccaneers but Lucky Pirates is up there with the best. The pirates on this slot are actually humanoid pieces of fruit and you can spin the reels to uncover some prizes. There are just 9 paylines on this game so it may suit some of the slot newbies out there that have just joined Lucky Cow Bingo.

You can also use the gamble feature after any win to try and double your money! This is a risky feature so be sure to only use it sparingly as it can get frustrating if you continue to lose. Overall, it’s a fantastically simple game and a tonne of fun to play.

Using the Lucky Cow Bingo Lobby Effectively

We get a lot of questions from our roomies (old and new) on the best way to find the best bingo games on our site. We are, of course, part of a larger bingo network and this allows us to provide online bingo games 24 hours a day. We always want our customers to get the best value out of our site. If you’re happy then we’re happy so how exactly can you find the best games?

How to Access the Lobby

New players may find the lobby slightly confusing at first but it becomes easier the more you use it. You have to be logged in before you can access it so log in using your account details and then you can hit the “Play Now” button to get started.

The lobby will then load in a separate window and it is from here that you can begin to find some of the better games. The key to using the lobby effectively is to find the best games so consider how much you have to spend and find games that fit with this budget.

The Bingo Schedule

To play the standard games on the site, you can use the bingo schedule to find suitable games. There are games launching every couple of minutes and you will be able to view the ticket price as well as the jackpot. Remember that the higher the player count, the higher the jackpot in most cases. We also allow players to pre-buy tickets for certain games and keep an eye out for the free games as well.

Jackpots

The jackpots tab in the lobby is where the best games are. Of course, these only play out at certain times so be sure to check out our promotional offers section for more info on these games. You can win big playing in the All or Nothing, Balance Booster or Fortune Fountain games so if you’ve not tried these out yet, then you can purchase tickets to try and play for some of the biggest prizes that we have to offer.

Spread Your Sessions

You can also keep a track of your progress by clicking the “Game History” button under the account section in the lobby. This will detail all the games that you have played and help you stay within your budget so we would recommend using it. Another tip is to spread your game sessions.

Sometimes you can find some pretty lucrative games by playing earlier in the morning or later at night. Playing at non-peak times might just be the key to finding some great games with excellent prizes.

Our Famous Prize Wheel

We also like to reward our players for continued use of Lucky Cow Bingo. In the lobby, you can click the “Spin the Wheel” tan top access the prize wheel. You have to complete certain tasks to be able to spin it such as wagering on certain slots and bingo games. You never know, you may already have qualified for a spin so click the tab in the lobby to find out.

We always want out roomies to try out some of our latest and greatest slots on our site but this month we are offering you the chance to play two of our old favourites and we have some phenomenal prizes to give away.

Both titles have been developed by Eyecon and the aim of both games is to aid the White Wizard on his quest to eternal fortune. You can win free spins and also risk your winnings for the chance to double your money using the gamble feature.

The Deluxe game is arguably a little more advanced than the original but you can play whichever you wish. Wagers begin from just a penny and players will enjoy the theme and graphics of both games so how exactly can you qualify for the prize draw?

Our Fave New Slots

Here at Lucky Cow Bingo, we love our slot games and also love keeping them right up to date. Our impressive slot gaming collection grows regularly, so it can be tricky to find just one to play. Out of the latest ones to be added to our site, these are our top picks!

Rebets Splendour

This game is really something special and comes from one of our very favourite developers, Eyecon. The reels are covered in luxury items and sparkling goods, which you might just strike a jackpot on. It’s a five reel, three row slot but don’t let that fool you – it’s really unique!

When you spin the reels, you will have the option to also spin each one individually. This will allow you to make your combinations even bigger and better, just splash out a little extra to spin the reel. We really love this feature of the game as it just makes it really interesting and exciting too.

Fae Legend Warrior

We could all use a bit of extra magic in our lives and this game promises to bring you just that! It has a really awesome fantasy theme and loads of betting options too. You can count on this fairy to cast a spell on your balance, we’re sure that she can tempt you into giving the reels a spin.

Each of the symbols on the reels have a magical theme, which helps the game to really look the part. Plus, there are wilds and scatters to play with too – which really can add a sprinkle of magic onto the reels. The wild symbol will even double whatever your prize is worth and boost the jackpot up even further.

There’s also a pretty cool gamble feature within this game too. With this feature active, you will be able to go double or nothing on your bets – use it carefully when you do!

Temple of Ausar

This game is also a rocking new installation from Eyecon. Egyptian themed slots have always been popular and this one puts a bit of a twist on the usual formula. You’ll need to hope that you win the favour of the gods to really win big on the reels, they’ll be watching you from the sidelines as you spin.

The free games feature of this game is incredibly rewarding. Just make sure you get three of the princess symbols and you will start to play for free. When the round is over, everything you’ve won will automatically be tripled.

These are some of our favourites from our new batch of slot games, but there are many more to try out on our site too. Check them out if you’re a fan of winning big.

Some Top Tips to Avoid a Bingo Disaster

Have you ever wondered what could go wrong when you play online bingo? It may seem like very little can go wrong but here at Lucky Cow Bingo, we have seen our fair share of bingo disasters over the years. There are a few things that could go wrong when you play the game so we thought we would list some top tips to help you play like a pro and avoid a bingo disaster so what exactly can go wrong and how do you avoid it from happening?

Buying Max Cards

Most players won’t buy the max cards for a game but some players do this as part of their bingo strategy. This can be risky due to price fluctuation. This doesn’t happen too often on Lucky Cow Bingo but can happen occasionally. We’ve seen players before who are rushing to buy cards for a game that is about to start.

Instead, the prices of the cards have changed from 10p to 50p and thus the player is out of pocket as they have not noticed the price change. To avoid this take extra care when purchasing cards and avert extreme caution when using the “Buy Now” button as prices can change occasionally.

Your Internet Connection

This is more of a common one among players and it can cause great frustration and even impromptu financial loss. Unfortunately, if your connection suffers during the game then you will lose out on the chance to win that jackpot.

If you’re device or internet connection is acting up then do not risk playing online bingo as it could lead to a bingo disaster! It really is that simple. A free bingo game on our site is a great way to play if you’re having issues with your internet but still want to play the game.

Your Account Details

Another simple thing to check on our site from time to time. If you enjoy our promotions then it is essential that you make sure your account details are up to date. Should you win a prize then we may have to confirm it with you (usually by email) and if we are unable to do this then you may lose out on your prize to someone else so don’t risk a bingo disaster and check that your account details and personal info are up to date.

Wagering Rules

Probably the thing that frustrates online bingo players above all others. We know it may seem trivial but you would be amazed by the number of people who play on bingo sites that do not know what wagering requirements are. These can affect your ability to withdraw winnings so read them and learn how they work so that you can use any bonuses that you may receive effectively and withdraw cash and enjoy your winnings!

A Brief History of Bingo

We always try to keep our players up to date with the latest bingo news from around the globe. We also like to offer the occasional strategy guide for playing on the Lucky Cow Bingo website but this week for our blog, we thought we would look at bingo has grown and evolved as a game over the last century so sit back and relax and enjoy our Lucky Cow Bingo history lesson!

The 1950s – The Decline of the Theatre

You may or may not be aware but the 50s saw the rise of the television for the first time. The rise of the TV led to a shift in how people were entertained and this actually led to the decline of traditional theatres. This development paved the way for new ways for people to go out and enjoy themselves and it wouldn’t be long after this time period until people would begin to enjoy the game of bingo in the UK.

The 1960s – Gambling in the UK

The 60s saw gambling legalised for small sums of money for the first time. Finally, fans of bingo could play the game in public for real money! This led to the bingo hall opening its doors and the game really began to increase in popularity. Around this time the Odeon Theatre screen its last programme and then transitioned into the Top Rank Bingo Club.

The 70s & 80s – A Peak in Interest

Over the next 20 years, the game stabilised to become a UK favourite. There were more bingo halls than ever during this period with any people enjoying the game every single week. At the height of popularity, there were almost 2000 bingo clubs in the UK in the mid-70s. The game became a much-anticipated part of the week with many considering it the highlight of the week.

The 1990s – Big Brands Dominate

It could be argued that the market settled somewhat in the 90s but the game was still extremely popular. The big brands began to dominate the market with companies such as Mecca and Gala becoming household names for those that went to play in bingo halls. A lot of other clubs sadly went out of business due to the power of the bigger bingo hall companies.

The 2000s – The Rise of the Internet

While less prolific in the 2000s, bingo halls continued to prove popular but the internet really began to take off during this time period. Home computers and mobile devices became more accessible than ever before and this led to the rise in the online bingo website. Now there are hundreds of thousands of sites and eventually, bingo halls began to decline due to the convenience of their online counterparts.

Today – Online Bingo Thrives

You can still find bingo clubs open all over the UK but the online market is where most people are choosing to play. The average bingo player is younger than ever before due to the range of diverse online options that exist on the web. Over 20% of players are aged 18-25 and there was over £1.3 billion spent on online bingo wagers in 2012.

As you can see the enduring popularity of the game remains, it’s just that players are consuming the product on different platforms. We expect bingo halls to continue to decline but the online game is here to stay with a huge number of people enjoying the game every week. We hope you enjoyed our history lesson and if you have any ideas of your own drop us a message on Facebook and we’ll add them to this post!

Lucky Cow Bingo Security Tips

Whether you are a bingo or slots player on Lucky Cow Bingo, it is very important that you are staying safe when you play games online. Whether you are betting a penny or £10, there is money involved. Online crime is more common than ever so it is important that you are protecting yourself online. We’ve come up with a few ideas as to how you can stay safe when you play on Lucky Cow Bingo.

Our Security

Of course, you can feel rest-assured that we have our customer’s safety in the forefront of our minds at all times. Your safety is of paramount importance to us and our number one priority. Our servers are kept secure at all times and we have regular independent testing through SQS.

Any transaction or info that is passed to us from our roomies will be encrypted with the latest 128 Bit SSL technology. This is the industry standard for monetary payments. This means that you can play with confidence safe in the knowledge that we are protecting you at all times when you play on our site.

Using the Chatroom

We have one of the best communities around on Lucky Cow Bingo but there are some things to consider when socialising in the chatroom. We actively encourage social interaction in our chatrooms but players should also be aware of how to remain safe while chatting.

Never give out personal information in the chatroom as this could potentially compromise the security of your account. Even info such as your full name or birthday can cause huge damage so don’t risk it and make up a name for your chatroom alias and of course, never reveal any card details or financial info.

Your Device

Another way to keep safe is to conduct a review of your device’s security. A lot of our players play from their PCs or laptops whereas others prefer a smartphone or tablet. Conducting a mini-audit of your device’s security features is a great way to increase your safety playing bingo online.

Make sure your firewall is activated and consider anti-virus software if you do not already have this installed. A quick scan of your PC or laptop for viruses or malware could prove useful in the medium to long term.

Browser Settings

We wouldn’t recommend playing on Lucky Cow Bingo on a device that is not yours but should you feel the need to play on a friend’s computer or a public computer then be sure to check the browser settings.
