Bingo Street Review
Bingo Street started life as a bingo portal, offering bingo players the latest news and promotions. However, it was picked up by the owners of Wink, Posh etc. The portal's fortunes changed and in July 2011 the site became the latest online bingo site in the Daub stable (now 888). It's been a while since we paid them a visit, so we thought we would pop on over to the Street to see what's happening!
Introducing Bingo Street
One thing that's immediately noticeable about Bingo Street is that it's always snowing. The site designers updated the background during a festive season and no one's ever reset it back. The brand's original street design is pretty much gone too and what's left is a decent looking site that is desperate for a makeover. Most modern bingo brands are quite minimalist and responsive to mobile. We'd like to see Bingo Street given a more modern design and move away from the original cartoon style.
Bingo Street Welcome Offer
New players are welcomed on to Bingo Street with a 200% first deposit bonus. This is based on a minimum initial deposit of £10 and offers a maximum bonus of £200. Wagering terms are set at x2 but note that this includes the value of your deposit plus the bonus. These terms must be satisfied before you can withdraw winnings and the minimum withdrawal is £10. The Bingo Street welcome offer hasn't changed in several years.
Occupying the various rooms of Bingo Street are a variety of 75 and 90 ball games. This includes the 5 Line game that's also known as Swedish Bingo. More recently (2019) players on the Dragonfish platform can now try 52 ball games such as Bingo Roulette. For freebie fans there's a Newbies Room which is open for the first 3 days after registration and no deposit is needed to play. To access other free rooms then you'll need to be a regular player/depositor.
Bingo Street Promotions
If you've played before at Tasty, Redbus or Posh for example then you'll recognise the similarities between those brands and Bingo Street's promotions. In short there's nothing exclusive here. On the flipside it does share promos like The Wheel of Wins, The Daily Unwind, Progressive Jackpots and Mystery Jackpots. Additionally there are the network free bingo games including a £250 Sunday jackpot and a £1000 game every Monday. Occasionally there may be seasonal promotions such as Christmas games.
Everything else on Bingo Street is as you'd expect from a Dragonfish powered brand. The lobby is easy to use and accessible, there's a good selection of slots including Fluffy Favourites, payments can be made via Paypal and Paysafecard, and the site can be used on mobile, tablet and desktop. No app is required to play at Bingo Street and the brand no longer has any active social media presence.
When we updated our review of Bingo Street we suggested it had lost it's way. Sadly that view still stands! There's no social media or community attached to the brand in order to elevate it up from other Dragonfish properties. Back in 2017 we did report that it was "good to see that the site has had an update recently and that it's sharing promotions that also run on Wink and 888 Ladies". Frustratingly there's been nothing new since that comment.
This isn't a fault of Bingo Street. In 2017 The UKGC stepped into tidy up online bingo so a lot of time, effort and energy has gone into bringing sites up to certain standards. This means less time and money to improve the player experience, create new games and update much needed platforms. That said, Bingo Street still has plenty of positives. These include a reasonable welcome offer, free bingo rooms and a good selection of bingo options.
