Crocodile Bingo has now closed its doors. This review will remain published for historical purposes.
Snapping at the heels of some of the more established brands, Crocodile Bingo said ‘G’day’ to the world of online bingo in 2015. Intertain are the owners so if you have played at any of their other sites (Treasure Bingo, Giant Bingo, etc.), you will know exactly what to expect from the experience here.
When it first launched the mascot of the brand was a reptilian Crocodile Dundee type, but as has been the case with many sites, the mascot was lost when changes to regulations for online gambling sites were introduced. However, whilst the croc has disappeared, his Akubra remains as a reminder of what once was.
The once Australian-themed home page now seems quite dull in comparison, but for the new player making their first visit to the site, there’s enough to encourage you to register and play. This starts with the welcome offer and then they tantalise you with details of the other offers, jackpots, and slots that you will find at the site.
Using the Dragonfish software to power the bingo offering, and with an impressive selection of slots to complement the bingo, you’re guaranteed a good time here.
|No Deposit Bonus||2 days of free bingo in the Bingo Academy|
|Welcome Offer||Deposit £10 and claim £30 bonus + 30 free spins|
|Minimum Deposit Amount||£5 (£10 for the initial welcome bonus)|

Ahead of making your first deposit, just for registering an account here, you will be granted two days’ access to a free play room called the Bingo Academy.
There are real cash prizes to be won every £15 minutes on the 90 ball games the Academy is host to. It’s £0.25 for the one line, £0.50 for the two lines, and the full house for £1.00.
When you make an initial deposit with Crocodile Bingo of at least £10 you will automatically benefit from the 300% welcome bonus (worth up to £200) + 30 free spins. This means a £10 deposit will result in £30 bonus cash + 30 free spins for Fruit Blast being credited to your account.
The bingo bonus carries 2x wagering requirements (initial deposit + bonus amount). The free spins portion of the welcome bonus carries 30x wagering and is capped at £6 games bonus.
Deposits and Withdrawals
The online cashier is the place to be to both deposit and withdraw at Crocodile Bingo. When you open the cashier, you have several funding choices. Not all are available to all players.
Listed in the terms and conditions of the site, under the banking section, are the following depositing options:
- By telephone: 08082 387 546 from the UK and +44 203 713 5122 from outside of the UK
- Debit cards
- Apple Pay – only using Apple devices
The minimum deposit and withdrawal value is just £5.
From the main page at Crocodile Bingo you can access the promotions section of the site. This has been split into three sections; Latest Promotions, Offers, and Jackpots.
Under the Latest Promotions heading are details of Daily Cashback, Flip Flop Fortune, and Penny Possums – just some of the special offers available from this brand.
The Offers tab focuses on the deposit deals available including the welcome bonus, 2nd and 3rd deposit offers, and the Deposit Deal.
Head to the Jackpots tab and you will find a list of jackpot bingo games that play throughout the week.
What’s not mentioned are the free bingo games that can be found on the site. For these, head to the main lobby and the free section.
Crocodile Bingo makes it very obvious that they don’t use bonus codes in order to claim any of the deposit deals they promote on-site. However, that’s not to say that you won’t receive a bonus code of some description in marketing material that they distribute via post, SMS, or email.
For that reason, it’s worth ensuring you have registered to receive promotional material from the site. Who knows what your inbox may hold in the future.
Unlike some bingo sites that seem to put the emphasis on the slots they have available, Crocodile Bingo has bingo at the fore and slots as a side dish. The main lobby opens to the bingo arena and it is here you can see the impressive selection of rooms that they have to choose from.
The site offers four different versions of the online bingo game with 90 ball bingo, two variants of the 75 ball game (pattern and five-line), and 52-5 bingo. These variations of the game are spread across an impressive selection of rooms and each has a variety of ticket prices and game jackpots. Details of what is available in each room are listed and these details include the ticket price, game type, game jackpot, number of players, and information about the chat host if one is on duty.
There are rooms dedicated to jackpots and also rooms that host games every few minutes. You just need to decide what appeals to your gaming expectations and budget.
Although bingo is the main focus, slots don’t fall by the wayside here. They complement the bingo offering and some games can even be played on the same screen as your bingo!
There are over 400 different slots and instant win games to choose from and everything is set out in easy-to-navigate sections. It doesn’t matter if you are a fan of the older games like Fluffy Favourites, or whether you like something a little more up-to-date, you will find a number of different titles to suit you.
By clicking the ‘Contact Us’ link at the bottom of the page, you will find details of all the support options available at Crocodile Bingo.
Under the Help link at the top of the page, the following choices are available:
- Getting Started
- 90 Ball Bingo
- 75 Ball Bingo
- 52-5 Ball Bingo
- Mystery Jackpots
- Bingo Lingo
The chat hosts in the bingo rooms are also very knowledgeable about the product and may be able to answer any questions you may have.
Intertain are responsible for many online bingo sites and it is these that are considered Crocodile Bingo sister sites. Of course, any brand on the Dragonfish software and network are related but for the purpose of this section, we have listed just the names under the Intertain hat.
Although Crocodile Bingo has been swimming in the online bingo waters for several years now, they have yet to snap up any prime time TV slots to promote themselves.
Should they opt to do so in the coming years, then it is here that you will find the information about any TV advert that is launched by this brand.
We were really impressed with many factors about Crocodile Bingo, besides the trusted software and network it sits on. We love that it isn’t only new players who are rewarded with freebies on deposits, the promotions are set out with easy-to-follow terms and conditions and there is plenty to keep you entertained both with bingo and slots. We’ve awarded a well-earned 4-star rating.
