It was back in July 2015 that Beatle Bingo crawled on to the world of online bingo and whilst beetle is the correct spelling of the word, these ‘beatles’ are small insects emulating the well-known band of the sixties. We’re not guessing at this, the home page of the site suggests as much with two beetles playing leaf guitars and singing!
There’s a psychedelic colour scheme to the welcome banner, another throwback to the sixties, and a few tasters of what you can find in the rooms when you choose to register and play at the site.
The beetles disappeared for a while following stricter regulations introduced to reduce the appeal of online gambling brands to people under the age of 18 in 2017. However, on visiting the site in April 2021 to write our review, they have crawled back on the home screen.
Whatever the home page shows by way of design, love it or hate it, there is no compromise on the quality of the gaming experience that can be enjoyed at this brand on the Dragonfish network. The theme may be a little cutesy, but as for what the site has to offer by way of game choice, this is just what we have come to expect on the Dragonfish software platform.
|Welcome Offer||Deposit £10 & play with £40 (150% bingo bonus and 150% games bonus)|
|Minimum Deposit Amount||£5|
|Best way to Deposit||Debit card, PayPal, Apple Pay|
The new player welcome offer is more than just a deposit bonus because even before you fund your new account you can access a free play room called Daily Doozey for 3 days. This room hosts a 75 ball game every 20 minutes between 7 am and 10 pm and there is a total prize pool of £315 up for grabs every day.
A first deposit of just £5 will activate the welcome bonus package. This is a 150% bingo bonus and 150% games bonus. The maximum bonus that you can receive for each is £52.50, a total of £105.
If you choose to claim the welcome bonus it is worth noting that these have wagering requirements attached to them. They are not excessive and are what you would see at other sites on the same network.
For bingo, the wagering required is 2x the original deposit and bonus awarded. For the games part of the bonus, wagering is 30x the original deposit and the bonus received. Not all games contribute 100% to meeting the wagering requirements so it is worth checking the terms and conditions of the offer to check the information.
Deposits and Withdrawals
There are several different ways in which to fund your account at Beatle Bingo. Please note, not all options are available in all regions.
You can deposit using the following methods:
- By telephone – call 0800 901 2510 or +44 800 901 2510 from outside of the UK
- Debit cards

- ApplePay – (UK players only from an Apple device)
£5 is the minimum amount for deposits and withdrawals.
The promotions page at Beatle Bingo lists a number of ongoing specials and offers from the brand. Below are a couple of examples that were listed at the time of our review (April 2021):
- Mystery Jackpot Room – This room is open from 6 pm until 11 pm. Tickets for the games are 10p each and the prizes that are worth up to £500 are announced just 10 seconds before the game starts.
- Free Bingo – There are several no-cost bingo rooms available to funded players, each offering a selection of bingo bonuses as prizes.
- Daily Jackpots – There are over £5,000 in jackpots to be won in the daily jackpot games alone!
- WOW – From Sunday to Thursday at 9 pm daily there is a bingo game that plays for the chance to win slot spins rather than cash prizes.
As well as all of the above, many other jackpot games can be found from the main lobby.
Listed on the site we could only find one of the Beatle Bingo bonus codes and this was for the Happy House promotion that we mention above. Use the code HOUR between 4 pm and 6 pm and you will receive a 100% bingo bonus up to £100 every time you deposit in that time period.
Please check the promotions page for this to check the wagering requirements attached to using this bonus code.
There are several bingo variants available to play at Beatles Bingo, all the usual offerings that you would expect from a brand that is using Dragonfish software.
You will find two types of 75 ball bingo; 75-24 which are pattern games and 75-25 which are the five-line games. There’s also the traditional English version of 90 ball bingo. The site is also host to 52 ball games.
Ticket prices in the rooms vary from the free games to higher-value tickets for bigger jackpots.
If you use the settings option you can choose to mark your own tickets or let the system do it for you. Using the latter means that you can leave your bingo to play and have a little slot action at the same time!
The slots portfolio is quite extensive with some of the titles available to play as mini-games on the same screen as your bingo.
The Dragonfish network has many third-party game developers providing titles on their sites and with new games launched all the time, you won’t be short of choice here.
Providers include the likes of NetEnt, IGT, WMS, Eyecon, and BluePrint Gaming. These are just some of the developers found. Popular titles like Fluffy Favourites, Gonzo’s Quest, Cleopatra, and many others are available.
To complement these, there is also a selection of scratchcards and table games to be found in the Slots section of the site.
Should you need to contact the site for any reason, your options are limited to telephone and email as shown below:
The site does have a section for game help too, and the chat hosts working the bingo rooms are quite knowledgeable. Pop into chat, they may be able to answer any query you may have.
All of the Dragonfish networked brands can be considered relative to Beatle Bingo, but when you compare promotional pages and welcome offers, the sites that offer similar are better defined as sister sites. These include, but are not limited to:

Beatle Bingo has not yet advertised its wares on television at this point but that’s not to say that they won’t choose to do so.
However, we feel it’s unlikely considering the number of sites owned by the company behind this brand.
Should a Beatle Bingo commercial be launched in the future, information about the TV advert will be provided in this area of the review.
It’s hard to be overly positive about Beatle Bingo when all that differs from this site and many others available on the online bingo landscape is the design. We like the hybrid bonus offer, and there’s an abundance of free bingo to be found but actually, you could find all of the features at numerous other sites. It’s for this reason we have only awarded Beatle Bingo an average 3.5-star rating. It’s like a ‘could try harder’ on your school report!
