Wink Bingo Review
Updated On Friday 6th October 2017
New Player Offer: 400% Bonus - £900 Free Bingo
Dragonfish - 888 wagering terms and conditions will apply
Wink Bingo made a huge impact on the bingo scene when they launched early in 2008. Using the Dragonfish bingo software they became the flagship of the then Joy of Bingo network which includes Posh, Redbus and Tasty. All sites offered big promotions including the chance to win cars. This group of sites eventually were bought by 888 and joined 888 Ladies Bingo as a new group of sites. So how is Wink getting on in 2017?

There are £300 of cash prizes and loyalty points on offer daily. Withdrawals are possible but wagering requirements need to be satisfied first. New depositors are welcomed with a 370% bonus - up to a maximum of £200. Wagering terms for Wink's welcome offer are set at x2 the total amount of your deposit used to redeem the bingo bonus plus the bingo bonus funds received.
Wink Wheel Bonus
A lot of Dragonfish powered brands, including the likes of Foxy, no longer offer reload bonuses. However if you use the code SPIN when you deposit £10 or more then you'll be invited to spin The Wink Wheel. Each spin guarantees you either a bingo bonus, games bonus or free slot spins. Wagering terms will apply.
Inside the Wink Bingo lobby you'll find five 90 ball rooms, six 75 ball rooms, daily jackpots, free bingo games and some specials. Note that you must be funded in order to play in the free rooms which include a £1000 weekly game that plays every Monday. All games can be accessed via mobile, tablet and desktop plus pre-buy is available for most of the games.
One thing that has changed at Wink over the years is the promotions. They've gone from offering big Joy Pot Jackpots and car prizes to smaller jackpot games and offers. This is reflective of much of the online bingo industry rather than just a decline at Wink. Thankfully there are games such as TGI Payday £3000, £50 Daily Drop and the £250 Free Sunday game to fill the voids.
Slots have also become more prominent at Wink Bingo. There are plenty of games to choose from including Jack's Pot, Fluffy Favourites, Spinata Grande, Sugar Train, Fluffy Too, Mega Fortune, Shaman's Dream, Starburst and Guns N Roses. It should be noted that these are pretty much the same games you can find at Wink Slots, but the latter will offer you free spins when you join as a new player.
As mentioned, Wink is mobile and tablet friendly. They also have an Apple App and Android App to download. For fans of social media, Wink have been active on Facebook and Twitter, but recently that's changed. We wonder whether that's because they took the decision, during a recent site upgrade, to focus more on blog content?
Wink has always been one of our favourite sites. They've re-invented themselves a few times and not been afraid to take a few risks - although the Dream Boys phase was a particular low point. These days it's all about the fun and with a good mix of free games, daily jackpots and decent promotions there's a lot to be liked.
