Tasty Bingo Review
Tasty Bingo was launched in March 2010 as an addition to the same bingo family that includes Wink, Posh and Redbus. This Dragonfish powered site had all the right ingredients to make the grade. The foodie inspired brand offered it's players free gifts, fabulous promotions, big jackpots and lots of fun. But times change in online bingo and things can quickly go stale! So how has Tasty Bingo faired and is it still high up on our recommended bingo site menu?
Tasty Bingo serves up it's mixture of games via a shop front designed homepage. It's set in what we assume to be a park whilst foody related images highlight various promotions and offers. Unlike Posh and Redbus Tasty's design still looks attractive. A makeover along the lines of Wink would be nice as would a mobile responsive version of the desktop site. That said, Tasty is accessible on desktop, tablet and mobile. Apps for Apple and Android devices are available to download at the relevant stores.
Tasty Bingo Welcome Bonus
The new player welcome offer has hardly changed over the last few years. Tasty Bingo still offers a 200% first deposit bonus up to £200 and an additional £10 bonus funds too. This means that a deposit of £10 gets you £30 to play. A deposit of £50 will give you a £110 bonus! Wagering terms apply and this is set at x2 the deposit+bonus. This is quite reasonable in comparison to other Dragonfish brands where the wagering term can be x4 or even x6. Interestingly Tasty doesn't offer any game bonuses to new players. This is something that still makes it appealing if you are not a fan of slots.
Whilst you might not like slots, you may well like the idea of a no deposit bonus. New players at Tasty Bingo can access a newbie room for no deposit free bingo for three days after registration. Login and play for small bonuses between 7am and 10pm daily. Wagering terms apply to any wins. Additionally qualifying depositors can dine on a variety of free bingo games. These include the £1000 Weekly Treat and The £250 Takeaway. Note the latter two games are shared with others on the Dragonfish platform.
Tasty Bingo Promotions
As well as free bingo, Tasty also offers 90 ball, 75 ball pattern and 75 ball 5 Line Bingo. 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 the Sweet Stack Up Room where you could scoop up a progressive jackpot daily! The Daily Unwind Room which has recently been opened and offers exciting games from 4pm each day.
Whilst new players don't receive a games bonus, regular depositors can receive spins, bingo tickets and bonuses via the Wheel Of Wins. Deposit £10 or more with the code WHEEL to receive a guaranteed win on every deposit. It's worth mentioning that any free slot spins won on the Wheel Of Wins are now wager free. Use of the Wheel Of Wins is unlimited and can be applied to every deposit of £10 or more. Our advice is if you like reload bonuses then fund in £10 amounts to maximise your bonuses.
When we updated our review of Tasty we said that it was "one of those sites which you feel should be doing better". Back in 2014 it was running TV adverts and hosting some seriously cool promos such as The JoyPot. As the bingo landscape has changed Tasty has very much dropped into Wink's and 888 Ladies' shadow. It's social media presence, which used to be excellent, is also sadly now non-existent. We think this is a shame because it does have a good theme. In fact we'd suggest it's better than either Posh or Redbus!
This doesn't mean you should ignore Tasty Bingo as an option for playing. The welcome offer is attractive and we like the fact there's no initial games bonus that may trap you in with a big wagering term. The Wheel Of Wins is another plus point as is the free bingo games for newbies and regulars. The choice of bingo games (52, 75 and 90 ball) is getting better but Dragonfish are still a little bit behind Virtue Fusion and Foxy are starting to catch up too. We like Tasty Bingo but can't help feeling Wink is always the better option if you've not tried either site before.
