Easter Bingo has now closed its doors. This review will remain published for historical purposes.
It was in 2016 that Easter Bingo launched promising an egg-citing experience to their players. What was interesting about the launch of this site was that it happened very close to Easter but for the operators, this wasn’t a new coincidence. A number of other brands opened very close to relative events. If you check out our sister sites section of this review, you’ll see some other examples. At launch, it was operated by Mandalay Media/Intertain, the company that launched Costa Bingo, but this is no longer the case as Grand Battery Holdings now operate the brand.
Like many of its peers in the world of online bingo, Easter Bingo had to rethink its design slightly due to changes in regulations around online gambling in late 2017. Where once we saw a selection of Easter bunnies frolicking in green pastures, we know just see a selection of egg-shaped bingo balls in the same pasture.
There isn’t anything about the site that makes it stand out from all the others on the same network, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. If you have played at other sites on the same software then you will know that you are guaranteed a secure environment to enjoy both bingo and slots. This site may not have you hopping with excitement with new things to offer because these brands multiple like rabbits and are all relatively similar aside from the theme, but there is plenty to keep your coming back for more.

When you register an account with Easter Bingo you are instantly given access to a free game called Freemium. This is available without deposit but games are not played often, once a week. The jackpot in the room is £150 and you can claim six free tickets for the game.
If you do choose to make a deposit, the minimum required to claim the new player welcome offer is just £5. For your money, you will be given a 200% bingo bonus (up to a maximum of £70) and a 100% games bonus (a maximum of £35), and 30 free spins on a game chosen by the site.
As is the case with this type of bonus, there are wagering requirements attached and a few rules worth noting. The wagering that is required is lower than the industry standard at 2x the value of the bingo bonus funds + initial deposit and for the games bonus, it is 30x the amount of deposit + the bonus funds.
For the free spins that you are awarded, there is a cap on the amount that you can win and this is £5. The free spins will be available in your Easter Bingo account for seven days and then they will be removed. Any winnings from the free spins will be subject to wagering requirements of 30x the value of the winnings.
In the terms and conditions of the welcome bonus, the game contributions to wagering are listed. It is worth taking a look at the information as not all games contribute 100% to meeting the requirements.
Deposits and Withdrawal
At Easter Bingo you will find all of the usual banking options that you would expect from a site on this software. All are available for use by UK players except for Interac which is only available to players from Canada.
These are available funding options:
- Telephone: call 0800 901 2510 from the UK, +44 800 901 2510 from any other country
- Interac (Canada only)
- Debit cards
- PayPal (UK only)
- Wire Transfer
- Apple Pay (UK only and only for use from an Apple device)
The minimum deposit and minimum withdrawal values are the same at just £5.
Promotions from Easter Bingo are accessible via the dedicated promotions tab. Listed on the page are details of the welcome offer, some of the jackpot games, information about the free bingo, and a few other specials.
Below are just two that we have taken from the page:
- Late Night Show – A special game that takes place at 00:45 every night with a £100 jackpot but only 75 players are able to buy tickets. Tickets are 1p each.
- WOW – A game that plays every night from Sunday through to Thursday at 21:00. All prizes in the 90-ball game, including 1TG and 2TG prizes, are free spins rather than cash prizes.
We could only find one bonus code listed at Easter Bingo but it’s a decent one that can be used every Monday as part of the Happy Hour promotion.
Between 16:00 and 18:00 every Monday if you use the bonus code HOUR in this time period when you make a deposit of at least £10 then you will receive a 100% bonus to a maximum of £100 on each deposit in the two-hour slot.
It may be that the site also sends out bonus codes as promotional offers so if you’re looking for this type of offer, make sure you have registered to receive promotional material from them.
Bingo and Slots Games
When you first enter the main lobby, you are instantly taken to the bingo area. Navigating to the slots section is done by clicking a link in the left-hand menu.
There are handy sections accessible from the top menu when you enter the bingo lobby. These see various bingo rooms separated into different areas. These are 24/7, Daily Jackpots, Specials, Bingo Roulette, Free, Loyalty, and All.
The site offers four different types of bingo games to their players; 75 ball pattern games, 75 ball five-line games, 90 ball bingo, and 52 ball bingo.
From any part of the bingo lobby, you can see information about what is happening in each of the rooms available. This includes the room name, the ticket price, the prize value, the game type, the number of players in the room, the time until the next game, and the chat host’s name if one is on duty.
Ticket prices vary from room to room and the cheapest are the free games. The higher the ticket price, the higher the jackpot that you can win.
As is the case in the bingo lobby, the slots lobby is also split into handy sections. These are New, DOND, Daily Jackpots, Instant Wins, Jackpots, Scratchcards, Top Picks, Slots, and All.
With hundreds of different titles available to choose from, and from many different software providers, you are spoilt for choice. Whether you love the classics from Eyecon like Fluffy Favourites or Shaman’s Dream or are looking for something more recent, you will find it in amongst the portfolio of slots and instant win games available here.
NetEnt, Microgaming, BGT, Eyecon, and many more developers have their name in the hat for the provision of slots and instant win games to the Dragonfish brands.
If you should need to contact support at Easter Bingo then you have the following options available:
- Phone Number: 0800 901 2510 or +44 800 901 2510 from outside of the UK
- Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org
You also have the option of viewing a selection of game help articles from the main menu Help section. This is also home to an FAQ section that may have the answer to any query you may have.
All of the sites powered by Dragonfish software and operated by Grand Battery Holdings Limited are considered sister sites to Easter Bingo and below are just a few examples of these (with their relative launch information as per our introduction to this brand):
For details of other sites on the same software, you can visit our dedicated page here.
We have not yet seen Easter Bingo take to our TV screens with a commercial and given the length of time it has been open, we would suggest that we are unlikely to see an advert for the brand in the future.
However, should they opt to promote their brand via a TV advert, details will be posted in this area of our review.
Easter Bingo doesn’t have anything new or exciting to offer the discerning player and it is for this reason, that we have awarded just a 3.5-star rating to this brand. With that said though, there is plenty to make the site worth a visit including the trusted software, an impressive array of game choices, and friendly chat-hosts in the room. If you’re looking for bingo and slots on a well-known platform that hundreds of players visit every day, then this is a site worth a visit.
