Queen Bee Bingo Review
Did you know that the bingo call for the number 73 is sometimes Queen Bee? Well now you know and it's something you'll remember when visiting the latest addition to the Real Money Network powered by Dragonfish - Queen Bee Bingo. Back in July 2017 Queen Bee became the 5th addition to that group that offers wager free bingo tickets and spins which are paid in real cash. It followed hot on the heels of Real Deal. It was the fourth brand from Tau Gaming who also own Blighty Bingo! So what's the buzz with Queen Bee?
Introducing Queen Bee Bingo
Swarm over to Queen Bee Bingo to enjoy the "sweetest nectar including free spins, free bingo and even cash prizes". Not our words but those that you'll find on the site. When it launched the brand did have a bee character but that had to buzz off thanks to The UKGC guidelines. Without the bee the site does seem a little bit naked but the honey coloured splash across the top of the site looks good. Bingo balls are strewn across the site but surprisingly the designer's forgot to include the Number 73 - the bingo call the site is named after!
Queen Bee Bingo Welcome Bonus
Deposit £10 as a new player to Queen Bee Bingo to receive free bingo tickets and free slot spins. The bingo tickets are for The Big £10K game - known as The Big Bang - and daily jackpots in the Street Party room. In total you can claim 64 tickets. This compares reasonably well with other brands that are on the same network. On top of the bingo tickets you'll also receive 10 spins on a selected slot game. For Queen Bee that slot is Fluffy Favourites but the maximum win from the spins is just £1. All wins are paid out in real cash and this carries no wagering terms. Withdrawal terms do apply though.
A no deposit option is available to Queen Bee Bingo players. Register and login to the site and access the Free4U bingo room. We believe that this game runs daily at 4pm and offers £4 pots but all prizes are paid in cash. There's also no restrictions to playing in this room so you'll be joined by non-depositing and depositing players. Dragonfish Network brands that have wagering, for example Bubble Bonus and Posh, will only let you enjoy a couple of days of no deposit bingo in the Daily Doozey room.
Queen Bee Bingo Promotions
Inside Queen Bee Bingo you'll find 75 ball and 90 ball rooms, free bingo - as already mentioned - and a handful of specials such as Last Call, Street Party, Kaching and The Ace Club. Bingo tickets start from 5p and pre-buy is available on selected games. If you prefer variations on the bingo game then there's 52 ball playing card and roulette options. The site also boasts the usual array of Dragonfish slots including Starburst, Fluffy Favourites, Millionaire Genie and Sugar Train. The variety of slots is decent but the directory could be improved to give access to Slingo, jackpots, slots by provider etc.
Promotions for Queen Bee players include jackpot rooms, free bingo games such as the £1000 Monday Money game and the VIP programme. This gives players the chance to play daily free spins and bingo tickets. You will qualify for the programme once you've played your first £1. Terms do apply but any wins are paid as real cash. Climb the VIP levels to claim up to 50 free spins a day and 30 free bingo tickets for the Kaching Room. If you attain a VIP level of 5 or more then you can also start earning cashback. This starts at 1% and rises to 10% at Level 15. You'll need over 819,000 points to be at the highest VIP level.
Back in 2017 we said "of all The Real Money sites that have launched, Queen Bee looks the most inviting". We also said that "it offers nothing different which means we'll soon end up with another huge network of sites all doing the same thing". The latter sadly has turned out to be true. Since 2017 numerous Real Money Network brands have launched and other than variations on the welcome bonus they are basically all the same. Why at least one brand can't go off piste and be unique by offering an exclusive prize game, bonus or room is unknown?
So we're sticking with our original comment on Queen Bee. In our view this site still has a long way to go before it becomes the Bee's Knees and the buzzing place to play bingo. At launch it was better a better option than Real Deal, Zinger, Blighty and Hunky - now they're all a much of a muchness. Sign up if you fancy the no deposit Free4U room or to claim the £70 of bingo tickets with the first deposit bonus.
