Dino Bingo stomped onto the online bingo scene in March 2015, another of the brands that were launched by the Ignite/Mandalay Media camp. As you might have expected considering the name, the site has a dinosaur theme. When it first opened, the dinosaurs featured in the design were very much like something from the animated film The Good Dinosaur. Changes in the regulations around online gambling saw these cute characters removed and now there are just bingo balls as dinosaur eggs and a volcano.
There’s a tie-in with the now-extinct creatures in the Jurassic Jackpots, but in the main lobby, the rooms have the same networked names as other sites from this company. Promotions-wise, they keep the theme going on many of the special offers but whilst the jackpots are promoted with names like Caveman Capers and Triceratops Treats, that’s not what they are called when you enter the site.
If you’re a fan of the other bingo sites that have been launched over the years by the company behind this brand, then you will love what it has to offer by way of free bingo, jackpots, and promotions. It’s got everything you would expect from a Dragonfish/888 site but a little more to offer by way of deposit bonuses and special offers.
You’re guaranteed a safe and secure environment to play your favourite games, whether that’s bingo or slots, and with so much choice, it’s not a site that we expect to be on the endangered or extinct list any time soon.

Even before you make a deposit with this site, you can play free games with no deposit required. The Bingo Academy is the venue and you can access it for two days after registration with no deposit and five days if you choose to fund your account immediately. Games are 90 ball bingo and the prize pots for each game are £0.25 for one line, £0.50 for two lines, and £1.00 for the full house. Each game is 90 ball bingo and they play every 15 minutes, 24/7.
At Dino Bingo, a new player who makes an initial deposit of £10 will receive 120 bingo tickets. These are not all for use in the same rooms but are for use as shown below:
- 30 tickets for Ticket To Ride, a room that hosts 75 ball games with 1TG and 2TG prizes. The prize pots are the full house for £5 and then 1TG share £3 and 2TG share £2.
- 30 tickets for Just The Ticket, a room that hosts 75 ball games and has a £10 full house prize pot.
- 30 tickets for Golden Ticket, a room hosting 90 ball games with one line prizes of £2, two lines prizes of £3, and the full house for £5.
- 30 tickets for Choo Choo Ticket, a room hosts 5-live games with £2 prizes for each line.
When you have been awarded your free tickets, it is worth noting that you can only use six per game in the allocated rooms. The free tickets have to be claimed after you have made your initial successful deposit and this is done by visiting the ‘My Zone’ area of Dino Bingo.
There are real money winnings if you get lucky on any of the games that you are awarded free tickets for and therefore, no wagering requirements attached to those winnings.
All tickets have to be used within seven days of being added to your account. Any remaining after this time will be forfeited and removed.

There is a dedicated promotions page at Dino Bingo and this is divided up into three areas; Latest Offers, Offers, and Jackpots.
Under the Latest Offers, there were details of the daily cashback offer and two bingo games that happen at the site on a regular basis. Moving along to Offers, and on this page were details of all the deposit bonuses that the site has to offer players. As you might have already worked out, under the Jackpots tab was information about several of the big money jackpot games.
There wasn’t anything unique or different found on the promotional page of this site.
Bonus codes are not a regular feature here as these are not required to take advantage of all the deposit bonuses that are available from the brand.
As a player at the site though, it may be worth registering to receive promotional material from them as it could be that they send special codes via email, SMS, or post for events.
Bingo and slots choice
Whilst the default destination when you enter the lobby for the first time at Dino Bingo is bingo, you also have a dedicated area for slots.
Once you’ve hit the bingo lobby you will see exactly what this site has to offer by way of bingo. Everything is laid out in easy-to-navigate sections. You will find Classic, Jackpots, Exclusive, Promos, Free, Easy Access, and the option to view All. At the bottom of the screen is a scroll option if more bingo rooms are available in the section you are in.
When it comes to bingo variants, the site offers four different types of bingo. 75 ball comes in two different variations. You can play the more traditional 75 ball pattern games, or if you prefer, the five-line option. There is also 90 ball bingo and 52-5 variant.
Tickets vary in price with the lowest being the selection of free games that are available. Higher value tickets are predominantly on the jackpot games but you will also find some of the jackpot games can be played for as little as a penny. There is something to suit all budgets.
If you are looking for slots, then from the left-hand menu choose the Slots option. You are then taken to another lobby. Like the bingo lobby, the slots lobby is split into different sections. The options are New, DOND, Top Games, Popular Picks, Megaways, Daily Jackpots, Instant Wins, Jackpots, Scratchcards, Casino, and All.
At the last count, there were over 100 different slot titles to choose from and with new games added regularly, this number rises all the time.
You’re not just limited to slots here; the site is home to table games too like Roulette and Blackjack. However, if you are all about the slots, then you will find well-known titles from an impressive array of software providers in the portfolio. From Eyecon to NetEnt, Microgaming to BGT, there is something to suit all tastes.
By clicking the ‘Help’ button from the main menu on the homepage, you can access several different informative areas. These include Getting Started, FAQs, how to play pages for all of the different bingo variants, and the Contact Us page.
Supports options include:
- Email: email@example.com
- Telephone: 08082 387 546 or +12684 844 830 from outside of the UK
- Live chat (via the chat hosts in the bingo rooms)
Dino Bingo has many different sister sites and all that we have listed are from the Mandalay Media/Ignite/Intertain group.
In addition to the above, all of the Dragonfish/888 brands offer a very similar gaming experience. For details of other brands we have reviewed on this platform, please visit the page below: https://www.bestbingowebsites.com/dragonfish-bingo-sites
It’s been a while since Dino Bingo first launched and we still haven’t seen the brand promote themselves on television as yet. It’s unlikely that at this point, or any in the near future, that we are going to see a TV advert for this site.
Should they opt for advertising on TV at any point, it is in this section of our review for the brand that you will find details of their commercial.
Whilst we might not consider Dino Bingo to be ‘Jurassic, the design of the site looks a little outdated. However, this doesn’t affect the playability factor, and powered by the popular Dragonfish/888 software means that this site has a great gaming experience to offer its players. There is plenty of choices, both for bingo and slots, and with deposit rewards on all transactions, the site works hard to keep its players coming back for more. For this reason, it’s a 4-star rating for this brand.
