When Rewind Bingo first opened its doors to players in September 2016, there was a definite 80’s feel to the design. There were two dancers in the background who looked like they were from the set of either Fame or Flashdance. Sadly, due to changes introduced by the UKGC, these were retired off, and instead, we are left with a selection of bingo balls featuring the rewind button from your TV remote. It’s colourful and has an 80’s feel to it, but only because we know the history. For the new player, the significance of the design will be lost.
The site asks you to ‘get your leggings and leotard on’ and step back in time with them. They profess that playing at the site will be the most fun you have had ‘since you peeled the stickers of your Rubik’s cube’. If you’re an 80’s child, that will resonate with you!
The brand was launched by the same company responsible for a number of other Dragonfish-powered sites online today, those that were opened by Mandalay Media/Intertain/Ignite. This means that the foundations of the site are strong as the company has a solid history in the world of online bingo.
It’s a site that boasts free games, impressive jackpots, an array of slots and instant win games, and friendly chat hosts. The question is, will you want to rewind and start again or fast forward to the end?

Deposits and Withdrawals
There are several banking options available to you at Rewind Bingo and if you have played at other Dragonfish sites before, you will be familiar with the list:
- By telephone
- Debit cards
- Apple Pay – only using Apple devices
The minimum deposit and withdrawal amounts are £5 but in order to be eligible for the new player bonus, or the subsequent deposit offers, a minimum of £10 is required.
Bonuses and Promotions
From the main page of Rewind Bingo, you can access the promotions page. This is set out in three different sections, each offering an array of offers, deals, and jackpots. Below is just one example taken from each section at the time of the review.
- Disco Beats – Every Saturday at 9 pm a bingo game plays where the prize is a £75 iTunes gift card. Tickets cost just a penny each.
- Welcome Offer – On your first deposit of £10 or more you will receive a 300% bonus and 30 free spins.
- Cowbingo – This is a 90 ball game that plays every Thursday at 9 pm for a £500 prize pool. Tickets are 10p each.
The above is just one example from each section, there are several listed under each heading so we suggest checking the page out for all the deals.
Bonus codes are not a regular feature at Rewind Bingo and are not required to claim the welcome offer or any other deposit bonus deal they have for their players.
However, as is the case with most online bingo sites today, it’s worth signing up to receive marketing material from the brand as you may find that they opt to send you special promotions and/or bonus codes via your chosen method of communication.
Bingo and Slots Games
Upon entering the bingo lobby, you will see all that the Rewind Bingo has to offer by way of rooms and game variants. It’s clear that bingo at this site is the main event and not an afterthought
There are four different bingo game types available across the plethora of rooms the site has to offer. 75 ball comes in both pattern (75-24) and five-line (75-25). There is also 90 ball bingo and the most recent addition, 52-5 bingo. The latter sees each ticket with five placeholders. Every time a number is called (these represent different objects for each of the 52 numbers) if you have the number, the placeholder it is on is covered. Match all five and you have a winning ticket.
There are multiple rooms to choose from and they can all be found by either just scrolling through, searching for a room by name, or using the top navigation that sees the rooms set out in labelled sections. Each of the rooms at the site has information about what is happening in the room which includes details like the game type, the number of players, the jackpot value, etc.
If you’re impressed with what the site has to offer in the bingo section, then you will be thrilled by what is listed under the slots section. Some of these instant win games are also available to play as mini-games in the same room as your bingo!
With over 650 different titles listed from some of the most popular software providers, there is bound to be one that suits your taste. Many of the games listed include bonus rounds, free spins, extra multipliers, and much more.
You will find games from the likes of NextGen Gaming, Microgaming, Amaya, Barcrest, NetEnt, and Eyecon to name but a few.
Under the help button on the home page, you will see several different sections. Getting Started is a must-visit for the bingo novices, then you have an FAQ section, informative areas about the four bingo variants on offer, a look at the Mystery Jackpots, a guide to bingo lingo, and then your contact options for Rewind Bingo.
To contact support, you can use any of the following methods:
- Phone Number: 08082 387 546
- Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Live Chat (via the chat hosts)
If we were to list all of the Rewind Bingo sister sites, we would have to dedicate a whole page to the names. What we have opted to do is provide you details of all the brands that were launched by the original owners, Mandalay Media/Intertain/Ignite.
If you would like to see even more Dragonfish-powered brands, you may find the following page useful:
With so many iconic 80’s tunes to choose from, we were hoping to see Rewind Bingo TV adverts but sadly, the site has not yet chosen to promote themselves by way of a commercial.
Should they opt to do so in the future, we will update this area of our review with all the details.
We couldn’t award Rewind Bingo anything lower than a 4-star rating because there are so many plus points about what they have to offer you as a player. It all starts with the free bingo offered that doesn’t require a deposit, and then continues with the great selection of bingo rooms, an extensive list of slots and instant win games, and much more. Sitting on a trusted network and powered by popular software, the only downside is the lack of unique promotions and offers.
