Tea and Bingo Review - Site Reviews
Tea and Bingo first launched into the world of online bingo back in December 2009 as a brand powered by the Virtue Fusion / Playtech software. However, in the middle of July 2013 the site closed only to re-launch in August of the same year as part of the large Dragonfish network powered by the 888/Globalcom software.
The design of the home page didn’t change too much but players on the old platform had to re-register for an account. Registration to Tea and Bingo just takes a few minutes and then you are ready to play. Financial details are not required at sign up as the site offers all players, deposited or not, the chance to try out their games in one room.
This room is available to all new players from the point of registration but only for a few days before a deposit is required. More details about the Dragonfish free bingo can be found on our dedicated page here.
Your first port of call is the lobby and it is here that you can see what the site has to offer by way of bingo and instant win games. Currently Tea and Bingo, like all Dragonfish brands, all offer just 75 ball pattern and five live games alongside 90 ball bingo. There are many instant win games to choose from though, some of which are mini games that play in the same window as your bingo.
The lobby shows a selection of details for each room including the name of the host (if one is on duty), ticket prices, game type, number of players and the house prize.
When you step into any of the rooms available at Tea and Bingo you will find the layout the same as all brands on the network. Navigation through the game is easy with ticket purchasing options to the left of the screen (this becomes the call board during the game), tickets in the centre with game details above and chat to the right with mini games and instant win games menu above.
A feature that was added in early 2013 to the Dragonfish brands was the ability to see what chat game is being played and the rules if required. Above the chat room you will see the name of the chat game and by clicking this the rules will appear.
Promotions at Tea and Bingo are limited to those offered by the network but at the time of this review, the site had only just re-launched so this could change.
If you like the Cassava bingo product that you’ll be happy with a cuppa and a game or two with Tea and Bingo. If you want something different then this won’t be the site for you.
