If you are a regular bingo player or new to playing online bingo, you will find which are the best bingo sites to play at in the UK here. We feature the top 10 bingo sites and a full A-Z List of Bingo Sites with details of the welcome bonus for new players.
Top 10 Bingo Sites 2022
We assess the merits of bingo sites and their many different features to be considered in their placement as a best bingo site. Our best bingo sites list has been compiled to offer you at least a starting point for your journey into the world of online bingo because there are hundreds of bingo sites to choose from.
How we choose a bingo site for the top 10
Below are just some of the factors that we take into consideration when reviewing a bingo site and then assessing them for inclusion of this top 10 bingo sites page are:
- The welcome offer – for a new player this is particularly important and we look at the value this holds for the newbie and the associated terms and conditions.
- Other bonus offers – it shouldn’t be just the new player who is offered a bonus on a deposit or a special bonus code. We consider whether a bingo site continues to look after returning and loyal players by way of bonus offers.
- Responsible Gambling measures – a bingo site has to offer a robust responsible gambling policy and features that are easily understandable and accessible to the player to even be considered for a place in the top 10.
- Licensing – safety and security have to be paramount for our players and we assess the licence jurisdiction and ensure that the site complies with the regulations set out by the UK Gambling Commission.
- Aesthetics – it’s no good having a bingo site that ticks all of the other boxes but when it comes to how graphic design, it looks like a child threw it together. After all, first impressions count!
- Game variety – whilst predominantly we are bingo players, who doesn’t like a spin of a slot sometimes? We look at the bingo game variety and what slot selection the online bingo site has to offer its players.
- Software – it’s no good a brand offering the best promotional offers or largest game selection if the software they use isn’t responsive enough or looks like a dog’s dinner when a bingo game is in play.
Answering Your Questions About The Best Bingo Sites
With many years of experience in the online bingo industry, we are able to navigate our way around each of the bingo sites with ease and know exactly where to find the answers to the most pertinent of questions you may have.
Having looked at the criteria we use to assess the top bingo sites, the following are answers to questions we feel you may have:
Making the top 10
What sort of welcome offer would be considered worthy of a placement in the top 10 bingo sites?
At the moment we are all for any welcome bonus that does not carry any wagering requirements. Not that wagering requirements are a bad thing; they ensure all is fair, but no wagering requirements make everything so much more transparent and easier to understand for everyone.
Bonuses after the welcome offer
What bonus offers should I look out for after the welcome offer?
It used to be that online bingo sites offered a cash match bonus on your second, and sometimes third deposits. However, these are not quite as popular as they once were and certainly are not standard in the current landscape.
Your best bet is to visit the promotions page of the brand you are considering depositing at and see what that has to offer. Most brands update these pages on a regular basis so you should see the latest offers.
Additionally, ensure that you sign up to the marketing emails for the brand you register with because you will also receive bonus offers this way.
Where would I find details of the responsible gambling features a site has to offer?
The placement of the responsible gambling features available at the bingo site should be hosted on a page dedicated to this.
Usually, this can be found via a link at the bottom of the home page of the bingo site that you are visiting.
Are the licence details shown on the site and if so where?
Like the responsible gambling links, details of the licence held for the online bingo site should be shown on the homepage. It seems to be pretty standard that brands host these details at the very bottom of the page and there should be a link to the regulatory body too.
What looks good?
What do you consider a site that looks aesthetically pleasing and what looks bad?
Again, this is one that’s really personal and varies from person to person. If you like the more animated style design then it has to be a site like Wink Bingo or 888 Ladies. However, it could be that you’re looking for something a bit less feminine from your bingo experience, then it would have to be a site like Gala Bingo.
When it comes to the poor overall design, it has to be said that the Jumpman Gaming brands do look all the same for the most part. Very little differs from bingo site to bingo site.
Bingo software preferences
Do you have a personal preference for bingo software and what would it be?
Again, it’s a matter of taste and expectation but we are fans of the Tombola offering because it is proprietary and really responsive. However, the Gamesys offering is very similar and 888 / Dragonfish bingo sites certainly don’t let the side down when it comes to an impressive online bingo experience.
A-Z List of Bingo Sites
We list all the best bingo sites from A-Z and those starting with numbers like 888 Ladies for example.
Non-Partner Bingo Sites
We do not have a commercial relationship with the following bingo sites. This has no reflection on whether they are good or bad bingo sites to play at:
Frequently Asked Questions
Is playing bingo online safe?
Yes. All the bingo sites we review are fully UK licensed and regulated.
Can I play bingo without spending any money?
Yes. Some UK bingo sites allow you to play bingo without having to deposit any money which is called ‘no deposit required’.
What are wagering requirements?
Most bingo sites that offer a welcome bonus come with wagering requirements. This is the amount of times you must play through the bonus before you can withdraw any winnings, e.g. 4x.
How do I deposit at a bingo website?
All UK bingo sites offer common methods to deposit money, including debit cards and PayPal. Credit Cards are no longer accepted as deposit methods in the UK.
No Deposit Bingo
A lot of new and seasoned bingo players like to try new bingo sites with a no deposit option to get a feel for a site before making a real deposit.
In the past, bingo websites used to promote big bonuses to new players, but these have now been changed to free bingo tickets and free spins. Bingo sites offering no deposit offers to new players include:
It’s also becoming more popular to try bingo on a £5 deposit which is less of a problem for some people on tight budgets.
New Bingo Sites
It wasn’t that long ago when there were over 400+ sites in the UK with new ones launching nearly every week. Nowadays there are fewer and fewer new sites launching, and when they do, we review all the features the bingo sites have and list them on our site in the new bingo sites section.
Some of the latest new sites we like include:
Bingo Software and Networks
Some bingo players know what they want, and they know which bingo software platform they like. Bingo software providers also have their own bingo networks where bingo games are connected to give bigger jackpots. The Dragonfish network has over 100 sites with connected bingo rooms and players can sign up to any of these to claim the welcome offers.
All sites in the UK must be licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission which means they have been rigorously evaluated on things such as:
- Responsible gambling practices
- Anti-money laundering responsibilities
- Keeping players safe
Whilst all sites must be UK licensed it doesn’t mean they are all the same quality and gaming experience. It just means players can trust them.
