What we recommend instead
Aunt Bev's Bingo Verdict
Overall, Aunt Bev’s Bingo is a well-designed and fun to play at online bingo site from one of the most experienced online bingo operators (Dragonfish). However, it would benefit from running some exclusive promotions and games, as well as lowering the wagering requirements for its free spins offers.
Design & Usability
Warm coral colours contrasted against aqua blues, and cartoon-like images of a kindly fifty-something housewife give Aunt Bev’s Bingo a homely and cosy vibe. There’s a main navigation bar containing all of the key pages such as Help, Promotions, and Getting Started, as well as a series of tabs along the top of the site that show you the loyalty rewards and welcome offer, plus options to log-in, sign-up, and request a password. Aunt Bev’s Facebook page link is also provided for fans of social media, and the scrolling list of “Lucky Newbies” on the left-hand side acts as inspiration for those who’ve just stepped through the front door.
Because Aunt Bev’s Bingo runs on Dragonfish software which can be found everywhere from popular brands like Costa Bingo and 888Ladies to smaller online bingo sites like Bumble Bingo, a high proportion of players will already be familiar with the way that the software operates. But, even if this is your first experience with a Dragonfish site, you should find that it’s easy to find games of interest, make deposits and withdrawals, and find your way around the different areas of the website.
Software & Gameplay
Aunt Bev’s Bingo operates on the Dragonfish (Bingosys) network, and the software has been fine-tuned to provide players with an easy, enjoyable, and reliable playing experience. The only limitations are the number of bingo variants which, at 888 brands, consist of 90-ball and 75-ball games. The banking system is well-designed, and lets you make fast deposits and withdrawals using bonus codes where applicable.
Safety & Security
Payments & Withdrawals
The banking methods on offer include Visa, MasterCard, Paypal, Paysafecard, Maestro, Entropay, Wire Transfer, Paypal, and Neteller. You can withdraw amounts of £20 or more and deposit as little as £10 per transaction. Withdrawals are processed within 48 hours.
The Help pages are highly informative, and the Getting Started guide is particularly handy for anyone who’s new to online bingo. But, if you’re stuck and need to get one-on-one assistance, you can get in touch with the support team 24/7, 365 days a year via email, telephone, or the Instant Help room.
Bonuses & Promotions
The welcome offer at Aunt Bev’s is more generous than average, as it gives you the chance to claim a 200% bonus of up to £150 when you deposit £10 or more, as well as two free spins for every £1 deposited (N.B., there’s no limit to the number of free spins you can claim, which is excellent). Make your second deposit of £10 or above, and you’ll get £40 of bingo tickets for the Big £10k jackpot game and one free spin on the Enchanted Prince slot for every £1 deposited. Finally, you can claim a 75% bonus of up to £50 and one free spin on the Unicorn Bliss slot for every £1 deposited with your third deposit of £10 or over. The bonus wagering requirements of 4x are relatively low and allow you to convert up to £400 of bonus winnings to real cash. However, free spins winnings are subject to significantly higher 80x wagering requirements.
Aunt Bev’s other offers are typical Dragonfish promotions such as Happy Hours (N.B., enjoy unlimited 100% redeposit bonuses and double loyalty points during selected hours every Monday), Wacky Wings games, WOW games that give away free spins as prizes, and The Late Night Show.
The Getting Started Guide runs you through the ins and outs of the mobile site and, while there are no mobile apps to download, the guide explains that you can log-in to your account via your device’s internet browser where your personal details, payment methods, and bankroll are all synchronised with your desktop account.
Variety & Originality
Aunt Bev’s Bingo boasts a wide range of bingo rooms although, as we mentioned earlier, you can only play 90-ball and 75-ball game variants. There are both regular and special rooms include Pennies Make £’s, Chatterbox, Sunny 90s, Late Night Show, High 5, Big Fat 10, and Rollercoaster, as well as daily jackpot rooms like £1K Wishful Thursday and £600 Dreamy Monday, five-line rooms including B-52 and Candylicious, invitation-only rooms such as The Big £10k and Guest List, plus seven free rooms which are, in the main, for funded members and recent depositors, but one is open to non-funded players for their first three days’ of play.
You can also enjoy slots like Fluffy Favourites, Koi Princess, Rainbow Riches, Starburst, Pixies of the Forest, and Gonzo’s Quest, plus jackpot slots such as Mega Fortune, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Piggy Payout, and Millionaire Genie. In addition, there’s a small selection of casino games consisting of Sidebet Blackjack, Oasis Poker, European Roulette, Deuces Wild Video Poker, Baccarat, and American Roulette.
Loyalty & Rewards
The loyalty programme at Aunt Bev’s Bingo automatically enrols you as a Rookie, and lets you work your way through Pro, Master, and Champion by collecting loyalty points as you deposit and play at the site. The benefits include monthly bingo bonus cashback (between 5% and 15%), free entry to the monthly Big £10k game worth £10 each (between 2 and 10 tickets), bonus spins (between 5 and 15), and monthly slots bonus cashback (between 5% and 10%). Entry to the free bingo rooms is determined by how much money you deposit in the past seven days. There are no VIP rewards such as hospitality events, VIP telephone support, and dedicated account management.
