Farmyard Bingo Review
Farmyard Bingo joined the Costa Bingo group in the summer of 2015. At launch it had a 1984-esque theme with Percy The Pig and his cohorts in the ascendency. However, towards the end of 2017, following UKGC guidelines, Farmyard became a little less populated... at least on the surface. Thankfully this Farmyard is still active with excting bingo games, top slots and plenty of jackpots. You can even "harvest your rewards in real cash". Read on to find out more about bingo down on the farm.
Introducing Farmyard Bingo
With a name like Farmyard Bingo you'd expect to be met by an assortment of cute animals. Unfortunately cute animals and bingo are no longer good bed-fellows so this particular farm boasts a beautiful rolling hills and a bright blue sky. Jerusalem plays in the background as you admire the green and pleasant land. We made that last bit up but it helps create the setting so much better. Overall it's a nice looking site and you can access via mobile, tablet and desktop.
Farmyard Bingo Welcome Offer
New players to Farmyard Bingo are welcomed with 120 free bingo tickets after they've made an initial deposit of £10 or more. These free bingo tickets can only be used in selected rooms: Ticket To Ride (75), Just The Ticket (75), Golden Ticket (90) and Choo Choo Ticket (5 Line). The rooms are open from 10am to midnight daily and winnings are paid as real cash. No wagering terms apply at Farmyard which is a plus point. Further free tickets are offered on your second and third deposits. Over £1500 is paid out daily in these rooms but remember they are shared with other sites in the same group such as Kingdom Of Bingo, Dino and Treasure.
If you'd like to try Farmyard Bingo before making a deposit then you can visit The Bingo Academy. This is a free bingo room that's open for two days after registration and/or five days after your first deposit. Every 15 minutes you can play a 90 ball real cash game. Play for 25p for 1L, 50p for 2L and £1 for the full house. It's not exactly big money but it does give you a flavour of what to expect. Other Dragonfish free bingo rooms focus on 75 ball bingo which is odd when 90 ball is the main game. Note that withdrawal terms apply so you will need to deposit before you can take out winnings.
Roll up your sleeves for a real bingo experience at Farmyward and you'll have a choice of 75 ball, 90 ball, 5 Line and 52-5 ball bingo rooms. The variety is good and ticket prices start from just 1p. As well as free bingo for newbies there's also a free game for regulars. Deposit at least £10 and get access to the Free-Loader room. Access is only valid for 24 hours from the time of the deposit and all winnings are paid in cash. You also get free bingo tickets for the same rooms that are accessible as part of the welcome offer described above.
Promotions are limited at Farmyard Bingo. There's Udder Madness where you can play for mystery jackpots, 1p Happy Eggs that's open from 2pm and Penny Piglets. If you're a fan of penny games then Happy Eggs and Penny Piglets are two strong reasons for signing up with Farmyard. Over £2500 is paid out in prizes each week with these particular offers. There's also The Diamond Club, VIP programme and all the other usual bits and bobs that you'd expect. Beyond that though there's nothing overly unique or stand out that could elevate the pigs to the same rank as the likes of Wink.
We've always considered Farmyard to be a nice looking site with a strong focus on bingo. You can play slots here but they're in the background which is a nice change these days. The changes in June 2018 to focus on no wagering gives Farmyard a new angle but it's perhaps not been enough to give it a real lease of life. Unfortunately bingo has suffered of late and it's brands in the shadow of bigger sisters (e.g. Costa) that often get left behind or overlooked.
So is this bingo farm worth a visit? Well there's plenty here to enjoy. We like the penny games that are available plus the free tickets on deposit are a nice bonus. The no wagering terms mean you're not tied up with hefty bonuses to payback before you can withdraw. We would love to see exclusive prizes and promos but for now Happy Eggs and Penny Piglets will suffice. Overall if you're looking for a new site to try then the farmyard is worth a look.
