Bumble Bingo Review
Bumble Bingo launched on the Dragonfish Network in 2016 and hoped to create a buzz with it's bingo and slots. Although part of a bigger network of brands, it joined the same stable as Hippo, Nutty and Bubble Bonus. This means that it boasts a few extras when compared to other Dragonfish brands. These extras include a monthly prize game, weekly rewards and the bumble wheel where you can spin and win for bonuses.
With a brand name like Bumble you'd probably expect to see a few bee characters when you first arrive on the site. Unfortunately due to UKGC rules they've had to buzz off. At least in this respect Bumble reflects real life with bees being in short supply. There is some reference to bees with signs of honey and honeycomb. The countryside background is deliberately blurry so you don't have to adjust your computers or start booking trips to Specsavers! Players visiting Bumble Bingo can play on mobile, tablet and desktop. No app is required but you can play on Apple and Android devices.
Bumble Bingo Welcome Offer
New players to Bumble Bingo are offered a £20 bingo bonus plus 20 bonus spins on the Reel Rush 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 Bumble Bingo 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.
Bumble Bingo Promotions
As well as free bingo, inside the Bumble Bingo lobby you will find a handful of exciting pay to play bingo rooms. Bumble Bingo 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. Bumble 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 bumble wheel to earn extra bonuses.
Slots are available to play at Bumble 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.
So do we get a good buzz from Bumble Bingo? On a positive note the bingo and slots on offer are good. The rooms are active and there's plenty of options for all budgets. We also like the bonuses players can get via the Bumble Wheel and weekly rewards, although wagering terms can sometimes be hefty especially on slots. We especially like the monthly prize game that runs within the small network of brands. It'd be great to see Bumble run their own exclusive offers but this is very unlikely to happen.
