Diva Bingo strutted its way onto the online bingo scene in March 2011 and since launch, has appeared to focus its attention on appealing to the fairer sex. Their initial dalliance in the world of TV marketing saw a commercial that focused on a free handbag offer with first deposits, not something that was ever going to have the lads flocking to the site.
To this day, the overall design of the site still has pink hues and with diamonds being a girl’s best friend, the home page has plenty of bling but with the appeal still appearing to be to the fairer sex.
Look past the design though, and what the site has to offer by way of bingo and slots will appeal to both sexes. Settled on the Dragonfish software, you know from the outset that you are guaranteed a safe and secure gaming environment on a trusted network.

Before you even deposit with Diva Bingo you can access a free bingo room called The Biggie for three days from the point of registration. The room hosts a game every hour or so and prizes include 1TG and 2TG too.
Should you choose to fund your account, an initial deposit of just £10 will see you awarded a 200% bingo bonus and 30 free spins (at the time of the review, these were for the Fluffy Favourites slot but may be subject to change).
The maximum bingo bonus that you can receive is £30.
Both the bingo bonus and the winnings from the free slot spins are subject to wagering requirements at Diva Bingo. The bingo bonus has wagering of 4x and any winnings generated by the free spins carry wagering requirements of 85x the winning amount.
All winnings from the free spins are in points and when all have been used, the points have an exchange rate of 100 = £1. Winnings are capped at £4.50. The free spins that you are awarded have to be used within three days or they will be forfeited.
Deposits and Withdrawals
You will find all the usual funding options for Dragonfish brands at Diva Bingo. You can deposit into your account using any of the following methods;
- Telephone: call 0808 238 0074 or +44 203 478 2666 from outside of the UK
- Debit cards
- PayPal (UK only)
- Apple Pay (UK only and only for use from an Apple device)
£10 is the minimum deposit that you can make at this site but the minimum withdrawal amount is £5.
The promotions, or ‘My Offers’ as it is called at Diva Bingo, is very basic and all that was listed at the time of the review (May 2021) were details of the new player bonus and a couple of the special jackpot games that play at the site regularly.
Whilst they may not be on the ball with exclusive promotions, the site does offer numerous jackpot games and also free bingo. The latter is available even before you deposit with this brand.
Diva Bingo bonus codes are not a regular feature at the site and are not used for any of their ongoing promotions (not that there are any).
However, like many of the other sites using this software, they do use bonus codes as a way to encourage players back to play so it is worthwhile agreeing to receive marketing material in some format or another. You could then find yourself sent a deposit bonus code via SMS, email, or post.
Bingo and Slots Choice
When you first enter the site you are taken to the lobby and here you have ‘Quick Access’ options and a little taster of what you can find in each section.
You have the choice of:
- Games – Takes you to the slots lobby
- Bingo – Takes you to the bingo lobby
- Vouchers – Opens a side menu that shows any vouchers you can claim
- Jackpots – Takes you to the slots lobby showing jackpot games
- Offers – Directs you to the promotions page
When you head to the bingo lobby you will find everything laid out in handy tabs that help you locate just what you are looking for. Whether it’s the jackpots, the live games, the freebies, or something else, you can find it using the top navigation.
The site is host to four different types of bingo games, two of which are 75 ball. The 75 ball games come in the traditional American game of pattern bingo and the Swedish variant, five-line bingo. There is also the traditional English game of 90 ball bingo and the 52-5 game.
With plenty of rooms to choose from and tickets on sale for as little as a penny (not to mention a selection of free bingo games), there is something to suit every bingo budget. Whether you’re a high roller or someone with a limited budget, you will find a room that suits both your taste and financial means.
From the bingo lobby, you can see a selection of details about each room which further helps you choose a room to suit your needs. You can see the game type, the number of players, the prize pot, and the time until the next game.
In the slots lobby, you have a similar layout, with handy sections to help you locate an instant win game that suits your requirements. Whether you are looking for an old favourite like Fluffy Favourites from Eyecon, or a new title from the plethora of different software developers who have games on this platform, it’s all easy to locate. If you know the name of the game you are looking for, use the search function at the top of the screen.
NetEnt, Microgaming, Yggdrasil, IGT, Eyecon, and many others have their names in the virtual hat for slots at Diva Bingo.
With over 500 different games to choose from, you won’t be bored here.
You can contact Diva Bingo using any of the following options:
- Email: email@example.com
- Telephone: 0808 238 0074 or +44 203 478 2666 from outside of the UK
Additionally, the site has a useful ‘How To Play’ section and you can access Live Help from the bingo client by choosing the Help room from the chat room.
Silverspin is the company responsible for promoting Diva Bingo, however, they operate using the Dragonfish gaming platform which is shared by the following similar websites:
Diva Bingo took to our television screens to promote their brand almost immediately after launch but in all honesty, the commercial was really cringy and very sexist. It focused on the £5 free offer that they had at the time of launch and centred on four ladies all sporting the free handbag that players were offered just for registering and making an initial deposit.
A few years later they took to the small screen again to advertise their bingo offering, but the next commercial was even more tedious.
Although they have had a presence on television, the Diva Bingo TV adverts didn’t do the brand justice.
Although Diva Bingo appears to cater to the fairer sex in design, the selection of games offered and the overall gaming experience available means that this is a brand that will appeal to the most discerning of players. There is a downside to the site, but nothing that would warrant avoiding the site. There aren’t enough promotions and deals besides the welcome bonus and standard jackpots and free games. It’s, for this reason, we could only award the site a 3.5-star rating.
