Spinning Bingo is a new bingo game for the iOS and Android platforms that plays like classic bingo, except with a significant twist. This game and those who developed it claim that you can win real life money by playing it. Not only that, but they claim that you can win a significant amount of money for not a whole lot of playing time.
Are you able to, though? Is Spinning Bingo a scam or legit? This is the question that we are going to be taking a deep dive into for the rest of this article.
To start, the gameplay is classic bingo with a major twist. The numbers are not organized the way that they normally would be on a bingo board, and the numbers are picked out via spinning a lucky wheel, not by balls bouncing out of a ball tank and randomly. The numbers will also daub themselves, so you don’t have to do the work.
You can play with multiple bingo tickets at a time, unlike most other mobile bingo games. You can play with either one, two, or four tickets; make sure that you are able to keep up with however many tickets you choose.
Unlike other bingo games that claim to earn you money, Spinning Bingo does not pit you against other players for wagering. Instead, you simply play a game of bingo on your own, and the winnings seem to pile up; in fact, they pile up very quickly.
Quick winnings and fast money, believe it or not, are actually generally a negative sign when it comes to figuring out whether the game is legit or a scam. If the developer paid out everybody who won, then they would go bankrupt immediately, so they’re definitely not paying everyone. Are they paying anyone?
To figure this out, go to the reviews in the App Store and see what people are saying. In the case of this game, people are saying that they are having a lot of trouble getting their money. Nobody has posted that they have actually gotten their money, but plenty of people have either said that it’s an endless loop of errors, or that they lost their data and had the rug pulled from under them.
In fact, with one of the most recent updates to the game, the option to withdraw your money has been removed entirely. This means that it’s now simply just a bingo game, rather than a bingo game that claims to earn you money. The good news is that nobody put in a deposit, so nobody lost any money, but nobody is winning any money, either.
The above paragraph is no longer accurate, due to yet another update of the game; now, you can see a count of how much money you allegedly have, or how many Amazon gift cards you allegedly have. In fact, the game will now try to sucker you even deeper by getting you to believe that you might have enough to cash out very early on.
In the withdrawal menu, it says that you can cash out once the countdown is done. The problem is, the countdown is never done. Either there are errors that show no countdown at all, or the time will keep resetting itself until you just give up.
You are given the option to choose between multiple forms of payment, whether it’s PayPal or another payment provider, but no matter which one you choose, you’re not getting paid. Nobody is getting paid that has ever played this game.
With all of that being said, we feel confident in ruling that Spinning Bingo is a scam. There is simply no way to get the money that the game tells you that you are earning, or to earn it like the advertisements claim that you would be able to. This is simply just a semi-fun bingo game with a low pressure playing style and not too many advertisements.
