888 Ladies Bingo Review
888 Ladies Bingo
Those of you who are fairly new to bingo may not remember that 888 Ladies originally featured Vic Reeves on their site. Vic was dressed up like a lady and wanted to settle down to play bing-ohhhh. Times have changed since his last appearance back in October 2012. The 888 group acquired the Wink stable and 'Ladies now has top billing among an ever expanding group of sites.
888 Ladies Bingo still uses the Dragonfish/ platform which many bingo players will be familar with. New players are welcomed with a 300% first deposit bonus. The minimum deposit is £10 and this generates a £15 bingo bonus and £15 games bonus. To withdraw wins related to the bingo bonus you will need to wager 2x the deposit + bonus funds. In respect to the games bonus that wagering term jumps to x50.
Welcome Offers & Free Bingo
For new players that login to 888 Ladies there is some no deposit bingo in the shape of the newbie room. The £888 Free Newbies room is open from 7am to 10pm daily and new players have access for the first three days after registration. Our advice is join on a Friday and then maximise free game play over the weekend. Prizes range from loyalty points to bonuses and note that wagering terms will apply to wins.
Games wise, 888 Ladies now offer four different versions of bingo to play. There's the traditional 75 and 90 ball games plus 5 Line or Swedish game. In 2016, these were joined by Flash Fives - a cards based version of bingo - essentially a 52 ball game. Another 52 ball game - Bingo Roulette - has also joined the ranks. It's good to see these variations, but we've already seen similar at the likes of Tombola and Jackpotjoy. Still, there's plenty of choice so that's a positive!
Promotions are a big part of life at 888 Ladies Bingo. They usually hold at least one major promo a month - although this sometimes may be networked with Wink and others. However among the regulars are a £250 Free Sunday game, The Daily Unwind, Mystery Jackpots and The Daily Perk. These are joined by the usual VIP and loyalty programmes. For those of you who like free bingo then there's Freebie Zone - this is usually only accessible to those who deposited in the last 3 days.
Surprisingly slots don't get as big a billing at 888 Ladies Bingo as they do on the likes of Foxy. That's not to say you can't play them and as you'd expect there's a good selection. Titles include Fluffy Too, Fluffy Favourites, Millionaire Genie, Piggy Payout, Paradise Reels, Cleopatra, Starburst and Rainbow Riches. Most slots as well as bingo games are accessible via mobile/tablet. Apple users can also download the site via the app store.
Back in May 2008, when we first reviewed 888 Ladies Bingo, we said this was one to watch over time as we'd expect 888 to build up their bingo site to match the success of their casino and poker services. A few years on things hadn't happened as expected and we also weren't too keen on some of their TV Ads.
However since 888 Ladies has become a sister site to Wink, Posh, Tasty etc. things have improved a great deal. In fact it's now a flagship brand of the group along with Wink. It may not have the same standing as it once did - but then no other brand using Dragonfish has these days either. However, with brands on the Dragonfish platform rapidly blurring into one, 888 Ladies Bingo is definately one that stands out from the crowd.
