If you’re looking for a site that screams England then Blighty Bingo has to be the brand for you! From the name to the overall aesthetic of the site, it’s all about Britain. With that said, the site is open to all who choose to play here, whatever their nationality. It’s the most patriotic of bingo brands online today but there’s plenty to welcome you in, wherever you hail from.
It was in 2017 that this Tau Gaming offering hit the world of online bingo, one of the inaugural sites to join the Real Money Network from Dragonfish boasting no wagering requirements on any of the bonuses that you can claim from them. It wasn’t long after launch (about 18 months later) that we saw the brand take to the small screen to advertise their product. Whilst television promotion hasn’t been as ongoing as some other sites, the original did enough to attract players through the doors. Decent promotions, a trusted software platform, and a well-known network is what keeps them coming back.
It boasts a varied online bingo experience to players and the no-strings-attached bonus offers mean you won’t be counting the pennies to ensure you meet wagering requirements!
On the landing page, there are the two women from the commercial of 2018 sporting fun bonnets, reminiscent of a World War II street party. Both have Union Jacks painted on their faces and scarves made of the UK flag. Does this site fly the flag well for British bingo? Read on to find out!
|Welcome Offer||Deposit £10 & receive 64 bingo tickets & 10 spins when you use the bonus code BLIGHTY|
|Minimum Deposit||£5 (£10 to receive the new player bonus)|

As a new player making your initial deposit of at least £10 and using the bonus code BLIGHTY, you will be awarded 64 bingo tickets and 10 free slot spins.
The 60 free bingo tickets can only be used on the Street Party game (ticket value of 50p). This is a 75-24 game fixed jackpot game for £150. The 4 remaining tickets will be credited for the Big Bang Game, a 90 ball fixed jackpot game with a £10,000 prize pot (ticket value of £10). The free spins are credited on a game chosen by Blighty Bingo.
There are no wagering requirements attached to the new player welcome bonus from Blighty Bingo. However, there are a few rules around the deal.
- You must use the code BLIGHTY to receive the bonus.
- Free bingo tickets are only available for 30 days, any that have not been used after this period will be removed from your account.
- Winnings from the free tickets are credited to your real money balance and can be withdrawn.
- The free spins will only be credited to your account when you have wagered £5 of your initial deposit.
- All winnings on the free spins are capped at £1 and will be credited to your real money balance.
- Any free spins remaining on your account after seven days will be removed.
Full details of the promotional offer can be found in the Terms and Conditions listed with the bonus.
Deposits and Withdrawals
Whilst Blighty Bingo may look to be aimed predominantly at UK players, the banking options tell another story, the real story. There are options for multiple currencies and whilst some options are limited for use to players in the UK, not all are.
You have the following choice of methods to deposit funds into your account:
- Telephone: UK 0800 901 2510 or outside the UK +44 800 901 2510
- Debit cards
- PayPal – UK players only
- ApplePay – UK players only from an Apple device
The minimum deposit and withdrawal amounts are £5 however, some bonuses (like the welcome bonus) require a higher value deposit in order to be activated.
The Blighty Bingo promotional page is only accessible when you are logged in to your account. It is listed on the left-hand menu.
We were a little disappointed with the number of promotions listed on the page. Aside from the welcome offer, these were limited to the Daily Offer and details of the Loyalty Rewards.
The Daily Offer, as you would expect, changes every day but on the day we prepared our review, a bonus code was listed and if used with a £10 deposit, earned the player mystery spins on Wild Cherry. It could have been as many as 100.
Loyalty Rewards speak for themselves because your loyalty to the site pays in free spins, free bingo tickets, and monthly cashback. How many and the value depends on your achieved loyalty level.
Whilst the site may not have a jam-packed promotions page, what isn’t advertised here are the things like free bingo and big money jackpots; the bingo lobby will provide you with details of these.
Blighty Bingo bonus codes are used for many different promotions at their site. The first, BLIGHTY, is used to claim the welcome offer for new players.
When preparing the review, the Daily Offer listed on the promotions page also required a bonus code and we would imagine that this is the case for each new offer listed for this particular promotion.
Like many online bingo sites, this one has also been known to disseminate codes via SMS, email, and post to their players. You will only receive these though if you have opted in to receive marketing material from the brand.
The hive of all the bingo and slots activity is the lobby and this is set out in easy to navigate areas. There’s a section for slots, bingo, promotions, FAQ, and Loyalty to choose from.
Head to bingo and you’ll find it is set out with ‘Quick Find’ options at the top of your screen. Whether you are looking for live games or those you can pre-buy for, Blighty Bingo has it all. There’s a room to suit any budget and the bingo game choice here is 75-24 (pattern bingo), 75-25 (five-line bingo), 90 ball, and 52 ball bingo.
All the rooms have an abundance of information listed to help you choose one that suits your personal needs. The game type, the number of players, the jackpot value, and the time until the next game all make it easier to find what you are looking for.
To complement the bingo arena at Blighty, there’s quite the choice of slots too. Some of the titles are even available to play as a mini-game, right next to your bingo session!
Many software developers have through their hat in the bingo ring here and you will find many different games. Whether it’s firm favourites likes Fluffy Favourites or Gonzo’s Quest, or something newer from your favourite gaming names like Eyecon or NetEnt, it’s all to be found in the slots section.
Support is available at Blighty Bingo in a selection of ways and details can be found using the pulldown menu next to your username from the main lobby. Under the useful links section you will find How To Play and Support.
The support options are:
- Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Telephone Number: 0800 901 2510 or +44 800 901 2510 for those calling from outside the UK

We’ve only seen one Blighty Bingo advert since it launched but often, one is enough to do the job and put an online bingo brand on the virtual map for players.
It could be that we see this site take to the small screens again in the future, and if we do, it will be shown here!
Like many online bingo players, we love a site that has no wagering requirements attached to the bonuses awarded and that’s what Blighty Bingo offers. Additionally, there is plenty of game choice and friendly chat hosts, and it’s available on a trusted platform that uses arguably the best bingo software. However, we’d have liked to see a bit more by the way of promotional offers. With all that said, it’s a solid 4-star rating from us!
