888 Bingo


888 Bingo is part of a much larger gaming organisation and so at least has the benefit of a lot of experience in the gaming market.
It’s based on the Dragonfish platform which provides a solid, reliable system for many other sites as well as this one.
One of the main criticisms of this and the others that use Dragonfish software is that they are a bit generic and lack individual style.
It’s all down to the player and what they want out of their bingo experience however and so for most newbies it’s probably best to give it a try and see what you think.

The site itself appears to be quite basic when you first look at it and the font sizes make it appear as if your browser is zoomed in somehow.
The simple layout does mean that everything is easy to see and navigate though with a clear navigation menu at the top and a large window in the middle devoted to the latest signup deal.

The navigation menu features a useful article section with various pieces about the game and how to play it.
There are also the usual promotions, join, help and loyalty area links and you certainly can’t miss the sign in box at the top.
The only really useful information is at the bottom in the form of tables displaying the latest winners and the upcoming games in the different rooms.

The big name backing of this site really comes into it’s own when you check out the range and quality of the games on offer.
As well as the standard 75 and 90 ball types there is also High Five Bingo which plays on a cut down card and can be great fun for a quick game or and easy intro for new players.
If you find yourself getting a bit bored with the bingo games then there are plenty of great alternatives to have a go at including table games, instants, slots, video poker and roulette.

There is a good selection of rooms for each game with special focus being placed on the 90 ball ones.
Some have some quite good prize pots associated with them and seem to run at regular intervals which are great for dipping in and out of, or in fact, as an alternative after you have been playing at another site.
Despite the green and mauve colour scheme, the rooms themselves are very well set out and easy to play in.
Things like ticket cost, ticket total, jackpots and player numbers are right there in front of you and the cards are clearly displayed too.

When we reviewed 888 Bingo there was certainly a very good selection of offers and promotions for new and existing players.
There are 2 hours worth of happy hour time one a Monday, one thousand pound jackpots on the first day of the month, various loyalty point boosting offers and daily tournament games with prizes up in the early hundreds.
As well as this there are special events like the treasure quest with a three and a half grand pot and of course the usual ‘recommend a friend’ scheme which rewards existing players when they bring someone else to the site.

A loyalty scheme is in place on 888 Bingo which rewards players with prizes of various values depending ultimately on how much they spend in a given time.
The top spending players will eventually get their own account manager but in between that and the lowest level you can expect larger bonus amounts, larger prizes and special offers and gifts.

Signing up to the site is very simple indeed and only requires a few standard fields to fill in as does the process of adding a payment method.
When it comes to withdrawal time players need to remember that a minimum figure of £20 applies and the overall wagering ratio is four times.
The wagering ratio means that you have to deposit 4 times the bonus amount before you can start taking money out.
Please also note that a form of id may be required for the signup, payment and withdrawal processes.

So, in conclusion, it’s a somewhat bare site to look at but it’s certainly well put together and fun to play on for people of all experience levels.
It’s fully licensed in Gibraltar which means it’s ok for UK players and the big name aspect guarantees a fair gaming experience.
