What we recommend instead
888 Ladies is definitely not just a bingo offering tacked onto 888Casino. This is a standalone site with its own theme and feel, plus high-quality software and games. New players are welcomed in style and old hands will find some quirky extras to enjoy. There isn’t much more to ask for here. Also, don’t worry, men are welcome too!
Design & Usability
888 Ladies has a great artistic style, using wooden boards for the background and neat, pink tabs. The overall impression is homely and warm, yet also smart, as they don’t use cartoonish graphics. There are some fun mascots that pop up here and there.
Navigation is pretty straightforward. Each tab along the top has some sub-menus to speed things up and each page goes where you’d expect. There’s a tab for the other 888 sites and they do feel like separate entities, unlike some sites where the bingo feels like an add-on to the casino and slots. You’ll find explainer pages which are great for newcomers and everything is neatly laid out. A very smart, user-friendly site.
Software & Gameplay
888 Ladies has a nice bingo lobby which keeps the theme from the main site. The lobby resizes neatly and starts you out with a quick tour, so new players will be able to find everything quickly. You can also see at a glance which rooms have hosts, always useful. Your balance and loyalty points can be seen easily and bingo is on a series of tabs, sorted by price. A thoughtful touch.
The bingo rooms are very nice looking, building on one of Cassava’s usual templates with a pleasant colour scheme and easy access to all your banking and settings. The bingo console is very easy to use and they seem to manage the space for chat and mini games well. Chat is a good, tall window with a lot of quick buttons. Finding a chatty room with a host is very easy here, so the community deserves a hand for that.
Safety & Security
This site also puts a lot of thought into responsible gaming, including linking to various helpful organisations. Everything is in order here.
Payments & Withdrawals
There’s a good selection of payment methods available at 888 Ladies. You can use credit and debit cards like MasterCard and Visa, or a wire transfer, or bank by phone. You can also use the renowned PayPal, EntroPay or PaySafeCard. Altogether a good choice and it’s always good to see PayPal bingo sites.
Depositing is nice and easy with a pop-up cashier. The process is led by large icons and it even has its own support team. Withdrawing is just as easy and should take around 3-5 working days, maybe a little more.
This site has a very nice help page, which has introduction text and very clear contact methods. You can access some top FAQs here with expandable answers, or contact the site via email or phone. Live chat is sadly missing, but the phone line is 24/7. The 888 Ladies support staff have a good reputation and seem to know their stuff.
The main FAQ page is very in-depth and the site has social media accounts that may help with the odd quick question.
Bonuses & Promotions
888 Ladies has a big number of promotions, all with some fun graphics. There are daily progressives, themed seasonal rooms and free bingo. There’s quite a mix and all are well explained, though there could still be some more interactive promotions.
The welcome bonus is good here at (sort of) 500%, which is split into two 250% amounts, one for bingo and another for other games. This can be claimed with just a £5 minimum deposit. The max you can claim is £500. They recommend £10 for £50 extra. The best part is that there’s only a two-times wagering requirement, which is less than most sites.
888 Ladies has a useful mobile page which can be found on the navigation bar, so there’s no hunting around for information. They have an iPhone and iPad app which is highly rated, plus most devices can access the site via browser. The mobile page is great for beginners, with FAQs and four ways to find the mobile site. They can even text the details to your phone.
The mobile site is neat and retains the themes and graphics of the main site. It’s easy to find and start bingo, plus it uses a system of sliding windows to make it easy to chat and buy tickets. You won’t be squinting at a tiny display.
Variety & Originality
888 Ladies has a lot of bingo rooms, over 15. They mostly stick to 90 ball and 75 ball bingo, but they do have a 5-line room and an interesting ‘flash fives’ room, a new game that works like snap. With a good mixture of ticket prices, the variety is pretty solid.
There are four free bingo rooms, with one just for newbies, so you won’t be short of free games. You’ll also see a raft of jackpot rooms, at least one a day, plus BOGOF bingo.
When it comes to slots the selection is large, while the quality varies. They have some big names like Starburst, so you will find some very pretty and feature packed games here.
Loyalty & Rewards
888 Ladies uses the Joy Gem VIP Club, shared with other sites like Wink Bingo. This is a good system which definitely rewards high rollers and has appeal, from VIP bingo rooms to birthday surprises and luxury gifts. You get VIP account managers and the top tiers are treated as a VIP across all Joy Gem sites. This is an invitation only system and amounts needed are kept quiet, but the basic Sapphire level requires £2000 in deposits in 90 days.
You will also find day to day loyalty benefits, such as swapping points for cash. There are also extra rooms which open up after you’ve been a member for a certain amount of time. This is a really nice idea and a bit unusual.
