Wink Bingo Review Continued...
Wink Bingo has been through a few changes since it was purchased by 888 Holdings in 2009, and the most recent makeover has given the site a much smarter appearance. It is still a bright and friendly place to be and there is plenty around to lure in new players.
Traditionalists can indulge in classic 90-ball bingo, but they shouldn’t ignore the 75-ball bingo offerings as well the fast-paced 5-line ‘Swedish’ bingo. Progressive jackpots are also available in the 75-ball Moneyball and 90-ball Full House games, which can be played at specified times and give fans the chance to win huge amounts of cash if cards are covered in a certain amount of calls or less.
If you fancy a break from the bingo, there are lots of other fun alternatives. Blackjack and roulette are on offer for casino enthusiasts, while there are also scratchcards, instant games and a vast array of slots from cutting-edge providers like NetEnt, OpenBet and IGT.
A redesign in December 2014 saw the Wink Bingo site become fresh and interesting, with the site acknowledging on the homepage that ‘we’re the same, just better looking’. There are still dashes of pink, particularly in the bingo rooms, but the new colour scheme has much more variety and should feel more inclusive to those who aren’t fans of the frilly, pink designs of other sites.
It is easy to move from room to room or on to different sections in the lobby as everything is clearly signposted, and the Dragonfish software ensures that games are played quickly and securely. The graphics are neat, clean and fit the browser perfectly, making it easy to spend time winning big instead of worrying about your browser crashing.
The mobile version looks fantastic and the app has a fun, slick navigation which fits in with the style of the site perfectly. Bingo on the go was never so fun or easy!
The guys and girls at Wink Bingo love to make their players feel welcome, and there is a helpful and friendly team of chat moderators. The site’s How to Play section offers a great guide for newbies and there are a host of winners’ stories to inspire you as you move through the bingo rooms.
A new e-magazine, Winkly, was launched in November 2015, covering all aspects of bingo culture, from the history of dabbers to how to set a budget for games. It’s pretty comprehensive and very friendly, and is only getting better as time goes on.
Wink Bingo Bonuses and Promotions
There are some tasty treats on the menu when you sign up at Wink Bingo, with a whole range of different promotions. The offers do get regularly updated but the most intriguing is perhaps the ‘Spin the Wheel’ welcome game, which invites you to deposit a minimum of £10 and win up to £1,000 free.
The free zone is a standout feature of the site, featuring rooms where you can play for prizes if you have recently signed up and deposited. The 50% redeposit bonus is also a very nice promotion, where you will always get topped up with bonus funds on every deposit of between £10 and £100, The 2X wagering requirement is pretty reasonable as well, as it means that you only have to wager the amount deposited plus the relevant bonus funds twice before the bonus funds can be turned into real money which may then be cashed out.
The rewards keep coming for returning players with Wink Bingo’s Loyalty Bonuses scheme. Points are automatically credited when purchases are made and referring a friend will see you rewarded with 15,000 bonus points.
The Joy Gem VIP Club comprises three levels - Diamond, Ruby and Sapphire - and provides some sparkling benefits, including automatic VIP access to all other Joy of Bingo sites, while new promotions are constantly cropping up to enjoy. Other perks of the programme include awesome deposit bonuses, mystery presents and more.
Bingo fans will find great games, decent promos and a cheerful environment when they sign up to Wink Bingo. The look of the site is very appealing and there are some great prizes up for grabs, so there is nothing to stop anyone from jumping on board for a great ride.
