Bingo All Stars Review
Bingo All Stars, not to be confused with All Stars Bingo, launched in May 2020 and the name conjured up images of celebrities aplenty. To be honest, that’s what you get but only if you are over the age of 40! Rustie Lee, Christopher Biggins, Linda Lusardi, Derrick Evans (Mr. Motivator), Russell Grant, and Jean Martyn are the faces of the brand but are they enough to get the players through the virtual doors.

Before you deposit with the site, it is worth noting that you can access a free play room called ‘Daily Doozey’ for three days. The games in this room vary in prize money throughout the day with £1, £2, and £5 bingo bonuses on offer.
The Bingo All Stars welcome bonus is quite a nice “virtual red carpet” that’s rolled out for new players to the site.
A £10 deposit with this brand will see you awarded £30 of bingo tickets and any winnings from these are yours, no wagering required.
- 70 bingo tickets that are given will be for use in the Dreamy Monday room. This is a 75 ball game (75-25) and tickets are valued at 5p each, total value of £3.50. The jackpot is £600.
- 30 bingo tickets are for the Terrific Tuesday room. A 90 ball game with a £1,500 jackpot. Tickets are worth 25p each, total value of £7.50 and the prize pot is split as £250 for one line, £500 for the two lines, and £750 for the full house.
- 23 bingo tickets for the Wacky Wednesday room. This is a 75 ball (75-24) game and the prize pot is £500 and split as the full house for £250 with 1TG prizes of £150 to share and 2TG prizes of £100 to share. Tickets are 50p each making the total value £11.50.
- 30 bingo tickets for the Wishful Thursday room. This is a 75 ball (75-24) game and the prize pot is £1,000. The full house winner takes home all the money. Tickets are 25p each making the total value £7.50.
You will also be awarded 10 free spins on Gonzo’s Quest.
There are wagering requirements attached to the free spins part of the welcome bonus and we have to be honest, they are pretty steep when compared to those on other Dragonfish bingo sites with free spins as part of the welcome package!
The free spins have to be used within 14 days and winnings are capped at a maximum of £5. Your winnings must be wagered a whopping 80x before they are converted into real money. Just as a comparison, the Dinky Bingo free spins (capped at £2) have wagering requirements of just 40x!
When it comes to the bingo tickets that are awarded as part of the welcome package, there are no wagering requirements at all and all winnings are awarded as real money and will be available to withdraw.
Deposit and withdraw
When compared to other online gambling sites, the deposit and withdrawal options are quite limited at Bingo All Stars. With that said, our personal favourites are there to use so we are quite happy.
You can deposit using the following methods:
- Debit Card
- Wire Transfer
Apple Pay is available to players in the UK using the mobile version of the site on iPhone and iPad.
The minimum deposit and withdrawal amounts are £5.
Bingo All Stars promotions
From the main lobby we could see just two current promotions at the time of the review. However, what the promotional page didn’t do a good job of ‘promoting’ is all the little extras like jackpots and free bingo both of which are available!
- Weekly Rewards – this is an ongoing promotion and sees players each rewarded based on how much they deposit each week. For a £10 weekly deposit you will get mystery bingo tickets and one entry into Facetime Friday. £40 or more and you will get the same but 20 free spins on Starburst.
- Facetime Friday – the draw will take place and five winners will win a Facetime Call from one of the celebrities that promote the brand!
We’re sure to see several time-limited promotions from this brand too, and promos that are likely to feature at least one of the celebs. It could be that you get dinner with Linda Lusardi, a workout with Mr. Motivator (AKA Derrick Evans), a personalised horoscope from Mr. Grant. We will have to wait and see what else the brand comes up with as they grow into their bingo skin.
When it comes to game choice at Bingo All Stars, the largest selection is in the slots area. You really are spoilt for choice in the selection of video slots and instant win games that are found here.
Whether you are a fan of the Slingo titles or love a little NetEnt fun with games like Gonzo’s Quest or Jack and the Beanstalk. It might be that Microgaming slots are what you are looking for; they have those too! Eyecon, Red Tiger Gaming, and many more are available with 600+ in their current portfolio to choose from.
Although bingo is what the brand is all about, there are limits when you compare to what other platforms have to offer by way of variety. You do have 90 ball games, and there is five-line 75 ball available too (also known as 75-24). 75 ball pattern games (75-25) can also be found but these are usually just on promotional games.
At the time of writing the review, Bingo Roulette was not yet an option but we imagine that this 52 ball game will be available shortly.
If you need to contact support for any reason, there are many options available to you.
- Email: email@example.com
- Telephone: 0800 901 2510 (UK only) or +44 88 901 2510 (Outside the UK)
- Live Help
- FAQ Section
In addition to the above options, you can ask any of the chat hosts questions and for the most part, the chances are they will be able to help you. They all know the Dragonfish product well and if they don’t have the answer, they will direct you to the area of the site that can help.
The site is owned and managed by 1st UK Online Entertainment, and Positively Distinctive Media (PDM) has teamed up with the company to create this new brand. Now PDM does have other bingo sites on the Dragonfish network, but the owner does not.
That said, as Bingo All Stars have rooms that are networked with other brands, as well as their standalone offerings, some would consider all Dragonfish bingo sites as sister sites.
This site offers ‘Daily Doozey’ as the free bingo games room to new players; below are other brands that use the same room:
- We Want Bingo
- Bingo Iceland / Iceland Bingo
- Say Yes To The Dress Bingo
- Dinky Bingo
At the time of writing the review, this brand hadn’t yet taken to promoting their product on the small screen. However, with so many well-known faces (if you are over the age of 40 at least) involved with the site, we’re definitely expecting to see a television commercial for Bingo All Stars in the not too distant future.
When and if it airs, you’ll find it here.
When we reviewed Bingo All Stars we had to give the site a solid 4-star score. There were for several reasons for this; we recognised all of the names who are fronting the site and we loved that there are all doing more than just having their faces plastered over the home page by getting involved in promotions like Facetime Friday. We didn’t rank it a five because when it comes to bingo, there’s nothing new to be found in the gameplay, and to be honest, we would have liked to see ‘stars’ that didn’t age the brand so much. As a footnote, the 80x wagering on free spin winnings also knocked them down a bit too.
