Aunt Bevs Bingo Review
Bingo isn't adverse to using people's names when it comes to deciding on a brand name. Over the years we've seen Bob, Harry, Zoe, Katie and Becky bingo brands. We've also seen the bizarre Aunty Acid! Joining this throng is Aunt Bev's Bingo. Who Aunt Bev is is a mystery but what we do know is that she has a site running on the Dragonfish Network. The site launched in 2017 and offers 75 ball, 90 ball and 52 ball games. You will also find slots, instant wins and Bev's Wheel. This latter option gives regular depositors the chance to get extra bonuses and rewards.
Aunt Bev's is a colourful site that's domainated in peachy tones and green. When it first launched there was a female cartoon character - presumably Aunt Bev - who was a glamourous lady who looked like she was baking. Unfortunately The UKGC don't permit such characters and so Aunt Bev has been kicked off her own site. This is a shame because it gave the site an identity. It also may have helped us understand just who Aunt Bev actually is! That aside you can enjoy the site on all devices including desktop, mobile and tablet. No app is required to play the bingo and slot games.
Aunt Bev's Welcome Offer
New players to Aunt Bev's are offered a £20 bingo bonus plus 20 bonus spins on the Starburst slot with a deposit of £10. Wins from the spins are paid out as games bonus. Register, login and deposit £10 to receive the bonus. Note that this is the maximum bonus on offer so depositing more won't increase the amount you receive. Wagering terms apply to both bonuses and these are x4 for bingo and x80 for games. The latter is hefty, but typical for Dragonfish, and players should familiarise themselves with the full details that are on the site.
You can try Aunt Bev's for free and without making a deposit either. Register and login to the site and access The Daily Doozey. This free bingo room should be open for 72 hours after registration for a series of games. Wins from these free games are paid as a bonus and therefore wagering terms apply. Note that the free games are 75 ball which we find unusual. The most popular rooms on the Dragonfish platform are 90 ball but new players aren't given the option to try these with no deposit needed. Depositing players have access to other free games.
Aunt Bev's Promotions
As well as free bingo, inside the Aunt Bev's Bingo lobby you will find a handful of exciting pay to play bingo rooms. Aunt Bev offers 75 ball and 90 ball bingo as well as 52 ball roulette bingo. The lobby area has improved recently and it easy to switch between bingo rooms and slots. Under the bingo tab you'll find Daily Jackpots, Bingo Roulette, Specials, VIP and All. The 75 ball and 90 ball tabs are where you'll find the main active rooms - High 5, Chatterbox and 90's Extreme. Typically expect to pay 5p or 10p per ticket for most games but there are penny bingo options as well as more pricier games.
All other rooms are jackpot rooms such as Mystery Jackpots and 100 Spins - also known as the WOW room. This game plays play nightly at 9pm Sunday to Thursday and gives you the chance to win slot plays. Look under the Free section for more free game options for depositors including Freemium, Quids In And Sunday Sizzle. Under Invite Only you'll find the Big £10K game. Aunt Bev also has a Prize Bingo room that it shares with other brands. This game plays each month on the 16th and offers prizes such as an iPad or shopping vouchers. Regular depositors can earn weekly rewards including spins of the Bev Wheel to earn extra bonuses.
Slots are available to play at Aunt Bev's Bingo. The lobby area for slots is greatly improved and this makes accessing new slots, instant wins, jackpot games and scratchcards a lot easier. Top slots include Fluffy In Space, Bonanza, 88 Fortunes, Sugar Train, DaVinci Diamonds, Millionaire Genie and Temple Of Iris. If you're a fan of games such as Megaways slots or Slingo then you'll need to use the search options to locate these games. However you can favourite games so as to make them easier to find next time you login.
Aunt Bev is a bit of a conundrum. The bingo and slots on offer are good and this is down to the platform. We also like the prize bingo room that runs at Aunt Bev's and her sister sites. The Bev's Wheel gives players extra rewards beyond the initial welcome offer. However the issue we have surrounds the brand name. We suspect it's meant to be something homely like Aunt Bessie's! Say Aunt Bessie and you instantly think of chips or yorkshire puds. Say Aunt Bev's and you say "who"? And this is the problem. What has Aunt Bev got to do with bingo? In our view go for the games, but don't expect too much from this particular member of the online bingo family.
