Bonus Letter From UK Bingo

Thursday, Apr. 26th 2018 7:23 AM

We often receive promotional material from various online bingo sites in the post. Most of these will offer free spins or special deposit bonuses but one we had from UK Bingo boasted something a little different. The offer is different and a little bit confusing if we are honest.

The letter starts, as all do, with the addressee’s name and then the account’s real balance. In this instance the amount is £6.44. This is followed by the account username. It continues by telling us that we have a real cash balance left in our UK Bingo account. It explains that we may not have been aware of the balance as we hadn’t logged into our account for a while.

Small Bingo is the newest bingo brand to launch from Tau Gaming, the company behind sites like Lucy, Good Day and Welcome Bingo. With the opening of the site comes an interesting welcome package, a hybrid deal that sees no wagering for bingo if you get lucky with the tickets that are offered as part of the package.

Alternatively, if you prefer slots, you are offered the option of taking a casino bonus at Small Bingo. The casino bonus has wagering requirements of 99x the amount of winnings generated from the up to 200 spins you could be allocated though. The site is part of the large Dragonfish network, so you know just what to expect from the gaming experience.

Should Mums Still Be Going To Iceland Bingo?

Tuesday, Aug. 29th 2017 7:01 AM

On 1st August a new tax was levied against bingo operators, one that meant many have chosen to drop their no deposit required bonuses and re-think their welcome bonus structure. The new tax sees operators charged 15% for all free bets / plays they offer to their customers.

Whilst many brands have opted to remove or reduce significantly their free play bonuses, Iceland Bingo appear to have been a bit more subtle. It may be that they were hoping players wouldn’t notice, or aren’t that interested. It’s our job to be interested on your behalf and we noticed a change when checking the bonuses at all sites we have listed.

Age Verification With Blighty Bingo

Tuesday, Feb. 14th 2017 7:01 AM

Blighty Bingo brought something new and different to the bingo table when it launched recently. The most obvious was the change in welcome bonus structure, offering free bingo tickets and free spins that carried no wagering requirements. In addition to this, there was a new look lobby and new games rooms.

However, the new features didn’t stop there. Blighty Bingo has also introduced a compulsory age verification process for new players. This comes in to play the moment that you make your first deposit and from that point you have just three days, 72 hours, to provide details of your passport or driving licence number via the online system.

Changes To The Bingo Extra Welcome Bonus

Tuesday, Aug. 23rd 2016 7:14 AM

It’s often the case that an online bingo site will launch with an impressive welcome package and then shortly after, drop certain elements. This looks to be the case with Bingo Extra but in their defence, they did launch in March 2015 and the free play bonus of £10 has only just been removed from their site.

Bingo Extra no longer welcome players through their virtual doors with a free play bonus, even the free spins that were once part of the welcome package have been lost. However, with that said, the brand has increased the cash match offer on first deposit to compensate for the loss of the £10 free.

888 /

On 24th September 2015 we saw a big change in the bonus structure and wagering requirements at all sites on the Dragonfish network and various sub-networks that have brands powered by the 888 software. The standard wagering requirements for a Dragonfish deposit bonus is now 4x the amount of deposit + bonus if you are playing bingo but 80x deposit + bonus if you are playing slots/games.

There are many exceptions like the Mandalay brands, their wagering requirements for bingo are just 2x the deposit + bonus but all sites from 8 Ball Games, their wagering is higher at 6x deposit + bonus [read more about 8 Ball Games wagering here].

Nesting On The 15 Network, Dove Bingo

Saturday, Jul. 18th 2015 7:46 AM

Dove Bingo joined the 15 Network this week, the 26th site to opt for the Jumpman Gaming on this network. Before you dismiss the brand as just another skin, it is worth noting that the welcome structure differs slightly to that of the traditional offer from this network and it’s apparent the moment that you land at the site. The big tell is that there is no spinning wheel adorning the home page…

The reason for this is that the additional free bonus, that given on top of the 200% cash match that is standard on sites like Dove Bingo, is not awarded via a spin of the bonus wheel. Instead players are asked to pick a bird from the dovecote.
