Wink Bingo Welcome Offer
When you register with the site and make your initial deposit of £10, the site furnishes you with an impressive welcome offer of a 200% bingo bonus and 200% games bonus. There is a £100 maximum for each bonus so you could receive £100 bingo bonus and £100 games bonus if your budget allows.
That’s a pretty impressive bonus by industry standards and it’s clear why this is a brand that continues to welcome new players regularly. The bingo bonus, as the name suggests, can only be used for bingo and the games bonus for slots and other instant win games.
It is worth noting that whilst there is no cap to the amount you can win using the bingo bonus awarded, there is a cap on winnings of £100 plus the value of the bonus for the games bonus.
- As a new player, even before making your first deposit with Wink Bingo, you are given access to the Newbies room. This room offers free bingo!
- This access is given for three days from the point of registration and there is a whopping £900 that could be won in that time.
- The Newbies room is open from 7 am until 10 pm daily. All free games are 75 ball games.
What are the wagering requirements?
Both the bingo bonus and games bonus has to be used within 7 days of them being granted to you or they will expire.

Where can I find Wink Bingo bonus codes?
You may find that Wink Bingo sends you bonus codes by email but also, the site uses a selection of codes for promotions. Take the Happy Hour for example. If you use the bonus code CHEERS between 4 pm and 7 pm and deposit a minimum of £15, you will get an entry for the Happy Hour game and could win free slot spins.
It’s worth ensuring that you are registered to receive email or SMS from the site as this is how you will receive promotional bonus codes from them.
Wink Bingo TV Ads
Wink Bingo has quite the history when it comes to advertising on television and actually, they have had some of the best bingo commercials to date. However, whilst they have some memorable advertising campaigns, changes to the laws for advertising online gambling sites has meant that the more recent adverts have been pretty dull in comparison to those in the early days of the brand.
Below is one of our personal favourites (well Nickie’s) but please note, the welcome bonus in the campaign below is no longer valid as this commercial is from 2013:
We have awarded Wink Bingo an impressive 4.5 stars and the only reason that it fell shy of 5 was the promotional schedule. Once upon a time, this brand offered an exclusive array of deals for players but over time, these appear to have fallen by the wayside. With that said, the brand earned its hefty star rating with a great playing experience from start to finish.
