Crocodile Bingo Review
In 2015, Intertain, the folks who brought us Costa Bingo and other brands launched a number of new sites on the Dragonfish powered platform. These new sites included Season and Farmyard. Joining them as the first new brand of 2016 was the snappily titled Crocodile Bingo. Players can "croc around the clock" and play exciting bingo games and top slots. There's also ripping jackpots on offer. More recently it's adopted a no wagering approach to it's bonuses but does Crocodile still have a big bingo bite?
Introducing Crocodile Bingo
At launch Crocodile Bingo adopted an Aussie theme. The site look visually stunning with the outback including Uluru (Ayers Rock) featuring in the background. Sadly the background and the main character of the site - a Crocodile Dundee croc figure - have been ousted due to UKGC guidelines on taking the fun out of bingo. The Aussie theme is still evident through the jackpot names but it does lack character. That said it still looks decent and is accessible on desktop, mobile and tablets. No apps are required.
Crocodile Bingo Welcome Offer
New players to Crocodile Bingo are offered 120 free bingo tickets for an initial deposit of £10 or more. The free bingo tickets can only be used in selected rooms but they give you the opportunity to try different variations. The tickets are for Ticket To Ride (75), Just The Ticket (75), Golden Ticket (90) and Choo Choo Ticket (5 Line). All are open from 10am to midnight daily and winnings are paid as real cash and no wagering terms apply. Further free tickets are offered on your second and third deposits
Free bingo used to be very popular on this group of sites but changes in June 2018 means it plays a lesser role. Newbies however can play in The Bingo Academy for 2 days with no deposit. Depositors get an extra 5 days plus they are given extra games as a reward for funding their accounts. As well as free games, regular depositors are rewarded with a free game. Players who have deposited in the last 6 days can play Crack-A-Crock once a day. On offer are bingo bonuses, bingo tickets, free spins and loyalty points.
Crocodile Bingo Promotions
Enter the lobby at Crocodile Bingo to find a selection of rooms to choose from. There's 75 ball, 90 ball, 5 Line and 52-5 ball available. Ticket prices start from just 1p and you can pre-buy on jackpot games. The rooms tend to be reasonably busy although there are no exclusives. Crocodile does share it's rooms with the various brands within the Costa stable. If you prefer slots then you can sink your teeth into the usual popular titles like Starburst, Rainbow Riches and Fluffy Favourites. Slots aren't a kingpin at Crocodile and they're there as part of your options rather than rammed down your throat.
Beyond the above however there's not much else to get overly excited about. That's because Crocodile doesn't offer anything new or unique. The daily 1p games are called Penny Possums whilst the guaranteed jackpots are dubbed Crazy Crocs. Note that these are just simply renamed versions of what is happening across a network of sites. It's still worth checking Croc out though even if it's for the Sunday Boomerang. This is a free play game with a £500 cash pot. It's free to players who have deposited within the last 6 days.
When we first wrote about Crocodile Bingo back in 2016 we did hope for "some exclusive promotions for players". Unfortunately these have not materialised and four years on are unlikely to either. Without them the site lacks a bit of snap when compated to Costa, but it's still got some features players will enjoy. The free bingo games plus The Bingo Academy are attractive and the no wagering aspect of the site a big tick in the "pros" box.
Another big tick is for the daily jackpots. Prize money has decreased across some online bingo brands but you can still play for £3000 every Saturday. It's s shame that the Friday freebie game has ended though. Overall we think anyone signing up with Crocodile will find plenty to enjoy. However if you've been on Costa, City or Sing then you might be disappointed. Overall though it's worth a look even just for the welcome bonus and getting access to The Bingo Academy.
