Redbus Bingo Review
Redbus Bingo, a London bus themed brand, is a sister site of Tasty, Wink and Posh. It was one of the original members of the Joy Of Bingo network and operated on the Dragonfish platform. Redbus, along with it's sister sites, were taken over by 888 a few years back and since then it's not been the most comfortable of rides. Read our review below to see if this is a bingo journey you'd love to get on board with!
When it first arrived Redbus Bingo was a stylish looking site. Today it's a little bit shabby as it's not been given much attention. That said we still love the bus design and the ticket logo. To go with the red bus theme there's a back drop of a London skyline. On one side you have The Tower Of London whilst on the other you'll see Tower Bridge, The London Eye and Big Ben.
New players to Redbus Bingo used to have the chance to get up to £2000 in bonus money via a scratchcard. This has now changed to a more standard deposit bonus offer. Register, login and deposit £10 to have £35 to play (250% deposit bonus). This bonus is awarded on deposits of between £10 and £100. If you use the code COACH then the bonus is a 200% plus 40 slot spins. Wagering terms apply and these are x2 (bonus + deposit) for bingo and x50 for games.
Redbus used to be a "go to" place for free bingo games and boasted a £100 free cash prize game every evening at 9.15pm. Again this has changed but the site still offers plenty of freebies. New players can access a newbie room for no deposit free bingo for three days after registration. Play for small bonuses between 7am and 10pm daily. Wagering terms apply to any wins. Additionally qualifying depositors can hop on board for a variety of free bingo games. These include Monday's £1000 Stop and The Free Sunday £250.
As well as free bingo, Redbus also offers 90 ball, 75 ball pattern and 75 ball 5 Line Bingo rooms. New 52 ball games like Bingo Roulette have also been added to the lobby. There are progressive jackpots too as well as all the usual popular slots. Among the best games to look out for are Jackspot, Millionaire Genie, Fluffy Favourites and Imperial Destiny. Among the big bingo games are £150 Monday Mania, £30 Rush Hour and £1500 Bingo Payday! There's also The Daily Unwind Room which has recently been opened and offers exciting games from 4pm each day.
Promotions wise things have also changed at Redbus! They did used to run a lot of exclusives, but these days all their big games and offers are networked with Tasty, Posh and Bingo Street. The values are less too and the days of the JoyPot are well and truly behind us. Social media unfortunately has also left the Redbus journey, which is disappointing. In 2015 they did trial a My Redbus Loyalty Plan but we're not sure if that's still running. On the plus side depositors can still collect a bonus when funding their accounts.
Redbus Bingo sadly has fallen into the shadows cast by it's bigger sisters of Wink and 888 Ladies. Considering back in the day there were TV ads and loads of exclusives offered to Redbus players, it's disappointing to have essentially "just another" Dragonfish powered site. We had hoped that back in 2017 we'd see Redbus overhauled and back in action to take bingo players on magical mystery tour? Unfortunately UKGC rules probably put any plans for Redbus on the back burner.
That said, there's no reason not to board this bingo bus. It still offers free games including no deposit bingo for new players. There's also a great selection of bingo and slots. Finally Redbus remains one of the few Dragonfish powered brands that offers reload bonuses. Check out their Wheel Of Wins when you make a deposit. You could win bingo tickets, slot spins or a percentage bonus. Just be aware of those wagering terms.
