888 Bingo Review
888 Bingo is the flagship site of the DragonFish network and 888 brand. And I must say, as with most sites using this software, it's a bit of an ugly duckling. The first thing that greets you on the homepage is a girl who looks like an illustration in a cheap kids book – why these Dragonfish sites lack so much in the aesthetic department is beyond me. Still, you shouldn't really judge a UK bingo site by its homepage, so it's on to sign up to collect a £25 bonus after depositing £10. Just cover your eyes before you log on.
75 ball, 90 ball, Swedish high-five, slots, casino, keno.
The standard Dragonfish fair.
The standard Dragonfish bingo software isn't anything to sing or dance about – numbers appear on the left, cards in the middle, and the chat window is on the right. Launch mini games like Shaman's Dream and Fluffy Favourites from above the chat window.
Meh. Probably one of the most exciting features on this site is the opportunity to win a million times a week, although to my knowledge, nobody has yet triggered this prize yet.
The VIP system is called BFF, and has several different layers, from bronze to platinum.
Visa, Neteller, PaySafeCard, Visa Debit, Visa Electron, Maestro, PayPal, Ukash.
As much as I've bitched about the overall look of the site, I must congratulate the safety procedures. As part of the enormous 888 Group, this site is totally safe, secure, and regulated as would be expected.
888 Bingo is operated by Cassava Enterprises, and powered by DragonFish software. It's licensed by the Government of Gibraltar.
