Bonnie Bingo Review
Bonnie Bingo is the latest brand from the Tau Gaming stable and it replaces the outgoing Zinger Bingo. Bonnie also follows in the footsteps of recent additions like Mint, Tickety, Dinky and Pizazz by being exactly the same as it's predecessors in pretty much every way. This means players joining this site will have access to 75 and 90 ball rooms, free bingo games, top slots and regular promotions. Join as a new player to get a bingo bonus, free bingo tickets and spins on the slots.
Visitors to the site are invited to enjoy an "Attractive Bingo Experience With Bonnie". We're not totally sure whether Bonnie is a fictitious person - perhaps a distant relation to Katie and Zoe - or whether the name derives from the Scottish term. To be honest we're actually pretty disappointed that there's no reference at all to Bonnie Tyler. The site design for Bonnie Bingo is a standard Tau/Dragonfish affair. A big splash of colour, featured bingo rooms and a selection of slots. It works and is ideal for mobile and tablet players. Cartoon style hands of a mobile bingo player add the only real bit of interest to the homepage.
Bonnie Bingo Welcome Offer
New players to Bonnie Bingo are offered a welcome package consisting of a bingo bonus, bingo tickets and slots spins. Register, login and deposit a minimum of £10 to receive a £30 bonus, 30 bingo tickets (on The Big £10,000) and 25 spins on a selected slot. You will need to use the code EXCELLENT to claim the offer. Note that wagering terms do apply. This is x4 for the bingo bonus and x4 for any wins generated from the spins. This offer is for Loquax visitors and details are shown above. The standard welcome offer gives a smaller bonus.
You can try Bonnie Bingo for free and without making a deposit. Register and login to the site and access The Daily Doozey bingo room. This room will be open for 72 hours after registration. Note that The Daily Doozey is a 75 ball room and any prizes that are won whilst playing are paid as a bonus. We like that you can try before you buy but wish that Dragonfish would offer free 90 ball games to new players as this is by far the most popular version of online bingo.
Bonnie Bingo Promotions
Inside the Bonnie Bingo lobby you'll find a handful of bingo rooms inclusing the aforementioned Daily Doozey. The lobby of Bonnie is better than those seen on some other Dragonfish Network brands. Under the bingo tab you'll find Daily Jackpots, 24/7, Specials, VIP and All. The 24/7 tab is where you'll find the main active rooms - High 5, Chatterbox and High 5. Ticket prices are typically 5p or 10p although you can find cheaper and more expensive games. Some jackpot games offer pre-buy.
All other rooms are jackpot rooms such as Bounce T, Mystery Jackpots and 100 Spins. Look under the Free section for more free game options for depositors including Freemium, Quids In And Sunday Sizzle. Under VIP you'll find the Big £10K game. This is a £10,000 monthly jackpot that occurs on the 10th of every month across all Dragonfish powered brand. 52 ball bingo is represented by Bingo Roulette. Players will find more variety amongst the slots that include Daily Jackpots, Slingo, Starburst and Twin Spin.
Bonnie Bingo promotions are limited to the jackpot rooms and a daily promo. This gives players the chance to claim extra bonuses on deposit. There doesn't seem to be any VIP programme or loyalty programme, but recent UKGC noises suggest these are going to be phased out anyway. Bonnie does have a Facebook page but this has a limited number of posts and followers. There's no incentive for players to follow or interact with the page. We'd be surprised to see them utilise social media given that their sister sites haven't exactly been prolific with their own pages.
The Tau Gaming conveyor belt of launch a brand every few months continues. Bonnie looks bonnie but it's safe to say it isn't offering anything new to bingo players and in June it'll probably be joining Mint, Tickety and Pizazz on the "unloved bingo site" shelf gathering dust. We'd rather see a site built up and a community developed along the lines of Wink or 888 Ladies.
