Diva Bingo Review
Diva Bingo launched in around 2011 and became the latest Dragonfish powered site to join a mini-network which boasted the likes of Gossip Bingo. That group has since expanded with other brands like Nutty, Live and Hippo joining the same stable. As you'd expect from a diva, this brand claims to be "the number one UK bingo site". However whilst Diva continues to offer bingo games and slots to it's devoted fans it sadly looks like it's seen better days. Let's take a closer look!
The Diva Bingo site is very old school and basic. The homepage is bathed in bright pink and that dominates what little other features that exist. A welcome offer and Starburst banner are pretty much all the graphics. We're all for minimalism but we do think Diva could make more of an effort. Unfortunately this is what happens when sites have to be stripped back for UKGC rules but budgets are limited in terms of giving a brand a much needed makeover. Still the good stuff is in the lobby so don't let Diva's look put you off.
When Diva Bingo launched it offered £5 of free bingo and a 250% deposit bonus plus they gave players who deposited £20 a free handbag. They even had TV ads although they were cringeworthy terrible. Sadly those days have gone and newbies are now able to collect £60 of bingo tickets and 10 spins on Irish Luck with a £10 first deposit. The bingo tickets are for split between the £2500 Real Cash Game and £50 Daily Treat. The former pays out in real cash whilst the latter in bonus money. Wins from the spins are paid as a bonus so wagering terms apply.
As a Dragonfish powered brand Diva does have no deposit bingo for new players. Register and login so that you can enjoy three days of access to the newbie room. No deposit is required to try the newbie room for this period. Note access is only available for the first 72 hours after you register with the site. There are further free games available to participate in once you've deposited. These are played in The Biggie, The Ultra, The Supreme and The Grand.
Diva Bingo Promotions
At Diva you'll find usual blend of 75 ball and 90 ball games that you'd expect on a Dragonfish bingo site. Among the main promotions are Mystery Jackpots, In For A Penny and £777 Jackpots. Note that these are sliding jackpots so quite often the headlined prize isn't the one that's won or guaranteed. If you like a change from the 75 and 90 ball games then Diva does give you access to 52 ball playing card and roulette versions of the numbers game. Ticket prices range from free to £1 depending which room and game you're playing.
Naturally slots are available at Diva but they aren't as prevalent as you see at other sites - at least not on the homepage. Head to the lobby and you will be able to play popular slots include Mega Fortune, Rainbow Riches, Wizard of Oz, Cleopatra, Starburst, Pixies of the Forest, Thai Flower, Jack and the Beanstalk, Fluffy Favourites, Golden Goddess and Action Bank. Most games are accessible on mobile, tablet and desktop.
Diva Bingo is another of those "could have been a contender" brands. Whilst Wink and Costa moved up, Diva and others never really got going. The design of the current site is the result of neglect, changing owners, changing conditions and no real direction. It's a shame really because Diva Bingo could stand up as a brand in the same way 888 Ladies does. The latter has benefited from a bit of a makeover and Diva is in dire need of one! If ever a site was stuck in the 2010s it's Diva!
There aren't any exclusives now though and Diva's social media presence gave up the ghost in August 2018. That all said the welcome offer is decent and compares well with similar sites on the same Bingo-X network. These include Moon, Loony, Gossip and Polo. There's plenty of great bingo games and top slots as you'd expect from a Dragonfish powered site.
