Welcome Bonus: Up to £80 deposit bonus
Launched in 2016, Dabber Bingo is a platform that uses pastel tones and minimal design features to draw customers in. Surprisingly, this is a website from the Dragonfish Network, with it showcasing visuals we’ve not seen from them before; it’s fresh, contemporary and uncluttered. The simplified mechanics of this website are meant to not only make the site easier to navigate, but it perfectly highlights how easy going the games are. Instead of being bombarded with gimmicks, Dabber Bingo allows their games to do the talking, without being hindered by novelty. We much prefer that, but it’s down to you to decide whether this label has what it takes to become your favourite bingo platform.
Even though the homepage advertises a mixed array of bonuses, you can’t see the terms of them because of how Dabber Bingo has been laid out. If you’ve heard us say this before, it’s because Dragonfish sites seem to use the same tactics again and again to try and entice you in. The problem is, sometimes this enigmatic quality backfires on the brand, as it puts us off rather than peaks our curiosity.
Nonetheless, we can detail to you the welcome bonus, which comes in the form of up to £80 deposit bonus when you allocate £10 or over. Of course, to get that maximum amount, you’ll need to wager a larger figure than the suggested £10. What is more, you’ll need to use the promo code ‘DABBER’, otherwise it won’t activate the deal and thus you’ll miss out. Not only do you get the cash with this offer, but you also get a set of 10 free games on the slot machine Fluffy Favourites. All of this comes with a wagering requirement of x4 for bonus based rewards, while other activities have a greater cap at x80; in truth, the details of the rollovers are spotty.

- Thursday Groove
This issue dogs the other promos as well, but for the most part we can start to overlook them due to the range that Dabber Bingo gifts users. Not only are there big money deals, like £10K Sunday Blast, a deal that triggers every Sunday at 8pm, there’s also Monday Chill and Thursday Groove. As you can tell for yourselves when reading the bonus details, they’re all money related rewards instead of free spins, etc, but at least you have variance to interact with.
Alongside everything we’ve already mentioned, there’s also loyalty points to collect, however there’s not a lot of details about this scheme. From what we can gather from the poor information provided, these points are generated by paying cash and playing the games. Other than that, we’re as in the dark as you are, and so it may be best to contact support.
Games and Software
Softwares: Dragonfish, NextGen, Eyecon and NetEnt
In reference to bingo games, there’s 90 and 75 ball bingo, as well as the opportunity to play free of charge. However, the full details of the games and the rooms they play in are kept close under wraps, much like other Dragonfish platforms. That being said, we can point you in the direction of Grab a Grand, Dabber Daily, and Wednesday Million; these are three of the activities you can play, with the cost being minimal, normally no more than 5p.
Also up for grabs is a range of casino titles, like slot machines, instant wins, and table based activities. In total, there’s well over 300 games for customers to load up and play, with software coming from NextGen Gaming, NetEnt and Eyecon, which in turn makes this a diverse collection of casino games from a small label. We love that such a compact site, designed primarily for bingo, can deliver these type of games, and in such a way that could rival big time casinos.
When you go to play the games, a lot of the time you’ll be able to play for free, however there will be occasions when this isn’t the case. If you’re looking at the site as a user yet to register, all the games will be off limits until you sign up. In spite of this being a characteristic many iGaming sites have, we dislike that guests are excluded from test driving the label out.
Banking options: Visa, PayPal, wire transfer and Mastercard
Finding out about banking is a nightmare for most visitors, seeing as how the FAQs doesn’t work properly. Instead of opening up a commonly asked question to reveal the answer, the site flashes the answer and then hides it away again; it’s a pain in the bum, and puts us off spending our money with Dabber bingo. After all, can a site with technical issues be trusted with real cash?
As that’s a question that you need to ask yourselves, in reference to the payment methods allowed, they include Visa, PayPal, wire transfer and Mastercard. Due to how varied and accessible these payment options are, currencies like EUR, GBP, SEK and USD are allowed, as are various others, even though they’re not mentioned. When you make a deposit, you’ll have to withdraw in that currency and by using the same banking method. What is more, withdrawals can take 10 business days to complete, with you only able to cancel them within two days of putting the transaction through.

Support and Contact Details
When you open up Help, a tab that’s located on the right hand side, you’ll be presented with the FAQs. Sadly, they’re laid out in a way that makes them difficult to read, and so it’s likely you’ll have to email or call support for assistance, with no live chat in sight. The team members are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, therefore making for a super customer focused platform that’s there for you when you need it.
Despite not being listed on the website of Dabber Bingo itself, the brand does have a Facebook channel, which you can find when searching Google. Unfortunately for those of you who enjoy using social media for just about anything, the page hasn’t been active since December 2016, and so we have to question how useful this channel is.
