Describe the company – the elevator pitch …
Quite simply, BingoMania is the oldest online bingo site on the web. We first came online in 1996 and have been offering bingo and other gaming experiences since. We strive to stay at the forefront of new technologies while maintaining the fun space that we’ve created for 20 years.
How are you different?
We are one of the most trusted brands for bingo experiences across the web. Our loyalty program is well-regarded by our players and they enjoy our wide variety of games and high jackpots. Simply put, we are not a fly-by-night operation. We’re in it for the long haul. If our players aren’t happy, we’re not happy!

Why will the company / product do well?
By listening to our players and reading the tea leaves about trends in the industry, BingoMania will continue to explore innovations while keeping the same core features that have drawn players to the site for 20 years. While other sites come and go, ours remains because our focus is always on the customer’s play experience, not in how much revenue we generate from the site.
Where are you based?
The site’s servers are based in Antigua so we can comply with regulations, but our players reach us through our websites: bingomania.com
When was the company launched?
The company first had a presence online in 1996 offering free online bingo. Once internet security features caught up to allow safe credit card transactions in 1998, we started offering gaming-for-money services.
What have been your biggest wins to date?
We’ve celebrated many big winners over the last 20 years. Comparably to land based bingo halls, we’ve had some record breaking wins such as a $138,000 jackpot winner, and several thousand $10,000+ players over the last past 20 years.
What type of people (market segment) are you trying to attract to your product?
Contrary to popular belief, online bingo is not a game for elderly people. We have a significant amount of players in all age demographics, especially the 25-45 age range. Since we are a gaming site, all of our players must be over 21 to play. As long as you’re interested in bingo, slots, or table games, we have a place for you.
Tell us about your team?
Our team is still led by the same team that started BingoMania in 1996. The most important part of our team is our support and chat moderators who are the face of BingoMania. We believe in empowering them to take care of our members.
What are you long term plans for your product / company?
To continue innovating and pleasing our player’s needs for fun gaming experiences. The AR/VR revolution is starting to hit the gaming space, mostly in the area of poker right now, but we expect that as this technology filters down to more households there will be a move away from the way things are done now. We’re so excited by this new technology.
What are your favourite tech gadgets?
Random number generators! Without quality RNG software, we would not have a site.
What tech gadgets do you wish you could use to help you?
It’s not a wish, but we’re investigating how we can harness home VR to improve our bingo experiences.
