Farmyard Bingo is a well-established online bingo site having first opened its barn doors to players in August 2015. It’s a brand that came mooing, oinking, neighing, and bleating from the same farm as the likes of Costa Bingo. At the time of launch, a whole plethora of farm animals were dotted around the home page, but since changes in the regulations around online gambling came into play, we have seen the animals’ bolt.
When you step into the stable you will see that this is one of those brands that go the whole hog in supplying a great online bingo experience for their players from start to finish. This can be attributed to a trusted software platform and network and a company that has been doing bingo online for years and not making a pig’s ear of it. Players have been coming to the site for quite a few years now and in the chat rooms, they’ll seem to be as happy as pigs in muck so it’s doing something right!
There’s plenty of fun to be had down at the farm so roll up your sleeves and get stuck into the great selection of bingo and slot games that they have to offer you.

When you register a new account at Farmyard Bingo you are instantly eligible to get free access to the Bingo Academy for two days. This room does exactly what the name suggests; lets you find your way around bingo and better yet, it won’t cost you a penny! All of the games are 90 ball and each offers a prize of £1.75 per game.
If you do choose to deposit with the site, an initial deposit of at least £10 will see you awarded with a 300% bonus match to use in the bingo rooms. In addition, they will also provide you with 30 free spins to check out a slot game which at the time of writing was Fruit Blast!
You can expect wagering requirements of 2x (initial deposit + bonus amount) on the bingo bonus. The free spins have 30x wagering requirements and are capped at £6 games bonus.
Deposits and Withdrawals
All of the banking options are available to view when you open the cashier at Farmyard Bingo and all of the usual funding methods found at sites on this software are available.
You have the choice to use any of the following methods to deposit funds into your account so long as the option is available in your region:
- By telephone: 08082 387 546 from the UK and +12684 844 830 from outside of the UK
- Interac – available to players from Canada only
- Debit cards
- Apple Pay – only using Apple devices
You can deposit a minimum of £5 in any transaction, and for withdrawals, the minimum value is the same.
Promotions are plentiful at Farmyard Bingo and some of these are shown on a dedicated page. Listed below are just a couple of examples:
- Udder Madness – Every day 10 games play that have mystery jackpots and mystery prizes.
- Daily Cashback – You can receive 3% of yesterday’s losses if you have lost a minimum of £5. This is calculated on the previous days’ real money bets less the real money wins.
As well as what we have showcased in our review, the site is also home to several free bingo games and for those looking for the big money jackpots, there’s quite a selection of these on offer too.
We could not find details of any bonus codes around the site and its internal pages; they aren’t required to claim any of the deposit bonuses and none of the promotions listed codes as being needed to take advantage of the deals and offers.
As is the case with many sites using the same software, it may be that they distribute bonus codes to their players who have registered to receive marketing material from them.
Bingo and Slots Choice
Bingo doesn’t play second fiddle to the slots at Farmyard Bingo as it can sometimes appear to do at other sites. The default lobby setting is bingo and when you enter, you will see that there are many different rooms available in which to play the game.
Each of the rooms details a selection of information about what is happening inside and you will be able to see the game type, the ticket prices, the number of players who are in the room, the prize pot for the game, details of any progressive jackpot available, and if a chat host is on duty, their name.
The game variants that are available here are as we have come to expect from sites on this platform. You can opt to play 75 ball in two different versions (pattern or five-line), 90 ball and 52-5 bingo.
There are a selection of ticket prices available on all game types and the pay-to-play games start from as little as a penny. As well as the live games that are hosted here, you also have many pre-buy games.
Although slots are not the main focus when you play at this site, they certainly don’t take a back seat! There are over 675 different titles available to sites on the Dragonfish platform which means you have quite the choice!
It doesn’t matter whether you are a fan of the classics or if you like the latest releases from the array of developers who have their names in the catalogue of slots, you will find something to suit your taste.
Big Time Gaming, Eyecon, IGT, iSoftBet, NetEnt, Pariplay, Quickspin, Realistic Games, Slingo Originals, and Microgaming are just some of the software providers that you will find in the instant win section.
A help section is accessible from the main page of Farmyard Bingo and there you will find a Getting Started area, FAQs, and how to play for all the bingo games on offer. They even get you started with a bit of Bingo Lingo!
To contact support you have the following options:
- 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
Although all of the Dragonfish brands offer the same gaming experience, the rooms available vary from site to site. The brands that we have listed as the Farmyard sister sites are those that were launched by Mandalay Media.
Farmyard Bingo has not been seen on TV promoting their product at any time since their launch and it is likely that they won’t choose to do so now.
However, if we do see a TV advert for this site in the future, details of the commercial will be shown in this section of our full review.
There were many things that we were impressed with from Farmyard Bingo and it is for this reason they have scored a 4-star rating from us. Some of the things that contributed to the score included the free bingo game accessible without a deposit, the bonuses on more than just the new player welcome bonus, the selection of choice for both bingo and slots, and the friendly chat hosts in the bingo rooms. We will be donning our virtual wellingtons for a repeat visit soon.
