Dinky Bingo Review
Dinky Bingo ask us to get ready for the Ultimate Bingo Experience and that’s a big claim from a new operator. The company launched as recently as March 2020 but there is certainly some substance to that statement and many reasons why they are worth checking out.
The company is another product from the wider 888 Holdings Group and that’s a positive start. 888 first came online back in 1997 and have implemented many well known and trusted brands in that time. They are licensed and registered in Gibraltar and are regulated by the UK Gambling Commission.
So, we can see that their credentials are sound but what about the games and any extra bonuses? What makes Dinky Bingo stand out and can they really offer that ‘ultimate experience?’
Remember that offers and promotions can change at any moment so do check to see if any deals listed are current. At the time of their launch in 2020, Dinky Bingo listed a welcome deal that promised a £10 bonus, 5 free bingo tickets and 20 free spins in their slots area. A minimum deposit of £10 was needed to trigger this and players would need to enter the Promo Code DINKY when they sign up.
The £10 bonus can be used in any room while the five free tickets are specifically for the Big 10K Game. As for the spins, those will be released immediately and they are for a designated slot. The title isn’t given but they will be for Dinky’s most popular game.
Do check the terms and conditions before going ahead but this is a quick and easy way to get started at Dinky Bingo and there are reasonable sums involved.
Having taken advantage of that welcome deal, there is little in the way of ongoing offers but, this is a new operator and that situation may well change in the near future.
For now, players can look for promoted games in the Dinky Bingo set up. These include Wacky Wednesday when tickets start from 50p and there is a £250 jackpot inside the room.
Games and Software
Dinky Bingo uses the popular Dragonfish Software system and this means that many of the games will be familiar to regular players. As for the games providers, there are titles here from NetEnt, IGT, WMS, Big Time Gaming, SG Games, Eyecon, Ash Gaming and more. Some of those developers are solely involved in the slots room where Dinky Bingo provide a mix of machines.
Slot titles such as Berry Burst, Neon Staxx and Cleopatra should be well known to regular players and some of the best providers are behind them.
There are scratchcards too but most players will turn up to a bingo room looking to play on the bingo cards. In this respect there are 12 rooms and there is a diverse set of 75 and 90 ball cards. Dinky Bingo also has some free games and there are paid options with stakes available from £0.01 upwards. It’s a great mix with options to suit all budgets here. Jackpots vary but there are games which can pay out at around £250 while that big 10K game takes it all the way up to an impressive £10,000.
There is a relatively small list of funding options available at Dinky Bingo but the bigger providers are here. Being linked to a long established company such as 888 has its advantages and that has allowed Dinky Bingo to offer PayPal for deposits and withdrawals. They are the world’s biggest eWallet and their very presence is certain to attract more custom.
If you don’t have PayPal or you simply prefer to use another method, bank cards may be the most obvious option. Wire transfers are available too, along with Neteller and PaySafeCard. Only the most obscure eWallet options are left off the list so there should be something here which would allow every bingo player to get on board.
The minimum deposit required is £5.00 but keep in mind that you will need to deposit at least £10.00 if you want to take advantage of that welcome offer. Deposits should hit your account instantly with the exception of wire transfers which may take between three and five days. As for withdrawals, the majority of methods will see your funds arrive between four and seven days. Once again, wire transfers are an exception as it may take up to 10 days before you see your returns.
We touched on this earlier and all details relating to Dinky Bingo’s licensing can be found at the bottom of their homepage. As a subsidiary of 888 Holdings the company has its gambling licence in Gibraltar and it is fully regulated by the UK Gambling Commission.
In order to ensure fair play, all of the games provided by Dinky Bingo are tested and certified by eCOGRA.
Support and Contact Details
Anyone looking for assistance can find a number of ways in which they can get in touch with Dinky Bingo customer support. The first point to note is that there is a live chat operator and, while this isn’t available on a 24/7 basis, most hours of the day are covered. Live chat can be accessed between 10am and 2am UK time and this will be the quickest way to get answers for those who are online between those periods. Please note that the live chat can only be accessed from inside the bingo rooms.
Customer services can be emailed via a webform and there is a UK telephone number which is available at the same time as the live chat. Finally, while few of us have the patience to trawl through frequently asked questions, this section is comprehensive and logically laid out so it is worth a look if you have a basic query.
As of July 2020 the only social media presence that we could find was via a small Facebook page. It wasn’t especially active and didn’t have many likes so clearly it needed a bit of work on it.
At the same point in time, there was nothing in the way of Twitter or Instagram accounts. That situation may change in the future but at present we would recommend sticking to the conventional methods of contacting customer support.
