Tea and Bingo launched in December 2009 with a couple of brilliantly animated TV adverts. The premise of the site is that there's always time for tea and bingo - which of course, there is! The site was owned by Digitalprophets, the owner of Bingobase.com, who had decided to take on many of the bingo brands they've previously promoted with their own ideas for a top bingo site.
Launched: March 2002
Licence: UK Gambling Commission
Bingo Rooms: 75 ball, 90 ball, High 5, Candylicious
Popular Slots: Cleopatra, Paradise Reels, Sands Of Fortune, Starburst
Minimum Deposit: £10 Minimum Withdrawal: £10
Wagering Terms: x4 for bingo, x80 for games
The credentials and ideas were most certainly in place to make Tea and Bingo a success. At launch it used the popular Virtue Fusion software and was part of the network that included Crown. However, when the Crown Better Bingo Network group moved to the Bede Gaming platform back in 2013, Tea And Bingo relaunched as a Dragonfish Network brand.
200% Welcome Bonus
In truth the change of platform didn't help Tea And Bingo and the site has been left pretty much untouched since. It still operates and provides all the usual games and offers that you'd expect from a Dragonfish Network site. For example new players are welcomed with a 200% first deposit bonus (x4 wagering term). In addition, newbies can play free bingo with no deposit for the first three days after registering.
If you enjoy free bingo then you can continue to play by depositing. All other games are pay to play and you'll have access to 75 and 90 ball rooms, progressive jackpots and daily jackpots too. As a Dragonfish skin you'll be able to play the usual favourites such as Million Pound Games, Zodiac Bingo, Wow Bingo, Grab A Grand, The Big £10K and more.
Slot players are well catered for with the likes of Fluffy Too, Fluffy Favourites, Starburst, Irish Luck, Piggy Payout and X Factor among those present. Beyond that though there's nothing exclusive, no social media activity or anything standout to raise Tea And Bingo up among the likes of Iceland, Bubble Bonus and Cupcake which have all joined the network in recent times.
This brand could have been so good that it's a crying shame to see it's demise. Unfortunately network changes really can impact the best of intentions and we feel that's been the case with Tea And Bingo. It could still be good but it's crying out for a makeover so that new players can feel truly welcome to join them for a cuppa. The reality is that we think players would be better off joining a different Dragonfish Network site.
