888.com launched back in 1997 and boasts Casino, Poker, Sports, and Games. Bingo was quite the latecomer to this particular party and 888 Bingo didn’t open until December 2009.
Since its arrival, the brand has undergone a few changes to the design. Currently, the home page features a young lady who looks pleased to be showing players the new player welcome package.
You’ll also see a small selection of the bingo rooms that can be found when you log in to your account, and to complement these, a little of what the brand has to offer by way of slots and instant win games.
Further down the page is a little teaser of the promotions that can be found at 888 Bingo but remember, this is only some of what this site has to offer the players who choose to register and play here!
|No Deposit Bonus||3 days of free bingo, no deposit required|
|Welcome Offer||Deposit £10 and get a 500% bonus (the same 500% applies to deposits of as little as £5).|
|Payment Methods||Debit card, PayPal, Apple Pay|
As a new player, even before you make a deposit, you will be given the chance to play in the Dailey Doozey room for 3 days free of charge. Games take place every 20 minutes and you will find a total of £315 in prizes up for grabs every day!
The new player welcome offer at 888 Bingo is a little different from other brands on the network because whilst it is advertised as ‘deposit £10, play with £60’, you can also claim the 500% match bonus on as little as £5.
The maximum bonus that can be awarded to a new player making their first deposit with the brand is £100.
There are wagering requirements attached to the new player 500% welcome bonus but these are set at the industry standard at 4x the deposit and bonus received.
The bingo bonus that is awarded can only be used to buy bingo tickets and cannot be used on any of the slots or instant win games.
A maximum of £400 and your original deposit amount can be transferred to your real cash balance when you have met the wagering requirements.

The promotions page for 888 Bingo is accessible from the main landing page of the site, and not from the lobby as we have seen at other brands using the same software.
At the time of our review, this page had little by way of one-off special offers but was jam-packed with information about just some of what you can enjoy at the site.
Below are just a couple of examples:
- The Big £10,000 – This game is only open to players on the 10th of each month but boasts an impressive prize pot of £10,000 guaranteed. One deposit a month will earn you tickets for the game and you are guaranteed to win something!
- WOW – Join the WOW games from Sunday to Thursday for a chance to win spins on popular slot games.
- Late Night Show – Only 75 players can buy tickets for this game and only for 15 minutes before it players at 00:45 daily. There’s £100 up for grabs and tickets cost just 1p each.
As well as the above, there are a selection of other jackpot games on offer and of course, free bingo for those who are looking to spread their bingo budget a little further.
It’s not the most inspiring of promotional pages, but there are plenty of regular jackpots and freebies happening with this brand.
888 Bingo bonus codes are not a regular feature at the site. They are not needed to claim the welcome bonus, and we could not find any advertised for use on promotional offers or deals.
As is the case with many sites, you could find a bonus code from the brand sent to you as an incentive to deposit. You do have to have agreed to receive marketing material from them in order to receive these (if they send any), so check your settings for SMS, email, and post in your account.
It may be that we are sent an exclusive bonus code for our readers, and if we are, it is here that the details will be listed.
There’s plenty of choice for bingo and slots at 888 Bingo and all of the details can be found from the main games lobby. Just choose your area, bingo or slots, and everything is set out for you in easy-to-navigate sections.
The bingo variants available here are 75-24 (usually pattern bingo), 75-25 (the five-line variant), 90 ball, and 52 ball. From the main lobby, you can see all of the rooms available and each provides details on the game type, time until the next game starts, the number of players, prize value and the chat hosts name. This makes it easy to choose a room that suits your game requirements and budget.
If it’s slots and/or instant win games you are looking for, then these are available in abundance under the slots heading. You have a variety of different slot games/types to choose from, over 300 at the last count, including video slots, classic slots, scratch cards, instant wins, and Slingo. These are from an impressive selection of software providers including (but not limited to) Big Time Gaming (BTG), BluePrint Gaming, Eyecon, Gaming Realms, IGT, iSoftbet, IWG, Pariplay Thunderkick, IWG, IGT, iSoftbet, and NetEnt.
Support is accessible in a number of ways at 888 Bingo starting with the hosts in the chat room. They are well-versed in all things bingo-related and may have the answer you are looking for.
If not, you have the following options through which to contact support at the site:
If we were to list all of the 888 Bingo sister sites then the list would be quite extensive so we have chosen to list just some on this page. For more brands that are related to this one, a visit to our Dragonfish Bingo sites might be useful.
We don’t recall there ever having been any 888 Bingo TV adverts and it’s unlikely that we are going to see the brand use this form of marketing now if they haven’t in all the time they have been open. However, should this change, it is here that you will find all the details.
888 Bingo has been awarded a 4-star rating; a rating that would have been higher had we seen something a little different in the promotional offers from them. That said, we do love that the minimum deposit required to receive the welcome bonus (and for regular deposits) is just £5 and it is this, that bumped the ranking up a little. This site has been around for many years, and it’s easy to see why players come back for more!
