Blighty Bingo Review
Following hot on the heels of Dabber Bingo, another new Dragonfish brand from the same camp launched back in February 2017. That same camp was Tau Gaming who dominate the no wagering Real Money platform. Blighty Bingo has a British theme although we don't think it was launched in response to Brexit! Anyway it promises a "brand new bingo experience" and also offers "a site like no other". Is that genuinely the case? Or are they serving up the same as everyone else?
When it launched we quite liked the look of Blighty. It's homepage was big, bold and emblazoned with red, white and blue. The site featured cartoon ladies which had big cheesy grins. We thought one of them looked like Janet Street Porter! Further characters could be found down the homepage and they add a sense of fun to proceedings. However fun things aren't allowed in bingo and so we now have two bemused looking real life ladies. They both have Union Jack painted on their faces and incredibly stupid hats. Rule Britannia!!
New players are welcomed to Blighty Bingo with a massive first deposit offer. A £10 first deposit using the code BLIGHTY will get you £70 of free bingo tickets plus 10 slot spins. The bingo tickets can only be used on selected games - £30 of tickets are for Street Party and the remainder for the Big Bang game. The free spins can only be used on Fluffy Favourites. Any wins from these tickets and spins are paid in cash and therefore no wagering terms apply. Note that the maximum win from the spins will be just £1!
Blighty does offer free bingo games to both new and depositing players. New players can login to the Free4U Room and give the platform a test. As well as the Free4U games there are of course 90 ball and 75 ball rooms including Street Party, Number 10, Blighty 90 and Fun In 90. Hits 52 and Bingo Roulette offer alternatives to to the traditional bingo games. Daily jackpots and other Dragonfish Network games such as The Big Bang (Big £10K) compelete an exciting choice of rooms.
If you love slots then you will find all the usual top games at Blighty. These include Motorhead, Toki Time, Rainbow Riches, Theme Park, Fluffy Too, Starburst, Dead Or Alive, Siberian Storm and Guns N Roses! Slots can be found via the lobby and are located on the right of the bingo rooms. The layout of the slots aren't great though and we'd love a better directory of titles. Currently you can only see new, all, jackpots and recently played.
Promotions tend to be limited to the network offerings. These include free bingo, mystery jackpots and daily jackpot games. Regular players can login to Blighty Bingo and collect daily free spins and free bingo tickets. The number of spins and tickets is determined by your loyalty level. Under the Ace Club you'll find the monthly everyone's a winner £10K game plus there are the free £250 Saucy Sunday and £1K Mondays games.
When Blighty launched it was one of the first no wagering bingo sites on Dragonfish. We wrote this was "potentially a massive turning point for online bingo". Most certainly since 2017 online bingo has undergone huge changes but we're perhaps the no wagering element hasn't been a massive success. That could be down to the fact that bigger brands like Jackpotjoy, MrQ and Buzz Bingo joined Tombola on board the wager free wagon and did a better job than The Real Money Network.
Blighty Bingo shouldn't be a site you overlook. The welcome offer of £70 of bingo tickets is pretty good for a £10 first deposit bonus. Additionally the Free4U room gives newbies access to the platform with no deposit required. If you like free spins and bingo tickets then the daily bonuses are great too. We would love to see some exclusives and games that differentiate Blighty and wager free bingo brands from other Dragonfish sites. Perhaps that's still to come?
