Dream Bingo verdict

Unsurprisingly, Dream Bingo is all about dreams. From the sky blue colour scheme, to the site's central, exclusive promotion, everything is tailored to inspire players into chasing their dreams at the site. So, really, there's only one question that needs to be answered - is Dream Bingo really a dream come true?

design & Usability

Dream Bingo’s design isn’t the most exciting, but there is something very pleasing about the look of the site. The sky blue background and white/gold features work really well together, creating a suitably dreamy look. It might be simple, but Dream has created a recognisable, unique look for its brand.

As far as usability goes, the simple design also makes navigating the site quick and easy. Overall, despite not being immediately thrilling, Dream is a very well designed site.

customer Support

24 Hour Support is offered to all Dream Bingo players, and there are multiple contact options for players looking for help. Presumably, 24/7 support only applies to Dream’s phone service, but players can also contact the site via email and Live Chat.

These details are easy to find too. Players just need to click the Support button in the lobby to see all available options. 

bonuses & Promotions

On Dream Bingo’s promotions page, you’ll find a small range of the latest offers from the site, although most can be found on other Microgaming sites too.

Instead, Dream’s main exclusive promotional offer centers around its Dreams concept. Players can tell Dream Bingo a dream, and the site will randomly “make them come true”. According to the site, players have recently won cars, shopping vouchers and Apple TVs through the scheme.

In the Terms & Conditions, it states that this promotion is open to all, and entering just requires the player to fill out a form. How a player is picked as a winner isn’t really made clear, but there is clear evidence of people receiving gifts from the site. The promotion ties into Dream Bingo’s brand really well, and offers potentially life-changing prizes to players, so it’s a good addition overall.

software & Gameplay

Dream Bingo is powered by Microgaming software, which can also be found on sites like Butlers Bingo and Dotty Bingo. Microgaming offers a decent range of bingo rooms, along with a wide variety of in-house slot games that can’t be found anywhere.

device Compatibility

With a neatly designed mobile site, Dream Bingo delivers a good quality mobile experience for players. iOS players can also download an app version of the site, although this option is unavailable for Android users.

There’s little mention of mobile on the site, and the lack of responsive design is a little disappointing, but once you access the site from your phone or tablet, you’re going to have few complaints.

safety & Security

Dream Bingo is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission, and has all the industry-standard features in place to keep players safe and secure. The site also has a Responsible Gaming page, which offers helpful links and advice to players in need of it.

variety & Originality

Microgaming sites have a lot in common, but there does tend to be some slight differences between each one. On Dream Bingo, players will find an exclusive room (the Day Dreamer room), which has exclusive offers on a regular basis. Outside of this though, there’s not much to distance Dream from other Microgaming sites.

payments & Withdrawals

With a wide range of deposit and withdrawal methods available, players have a good amount of options at their disposal. Dream even goes above and beyond the standard methods; players can also deposit and withdraw via more specialised methods like ecoPayz and Skrill’s 1 Tap system.

However, wagering is very tight on bonuses at Dream, which can affect your ability to make withdrawals - bingo bonuses have a 3x wagering requirement, while slot bonuses come with a 50x requirement. Working through those before making a withdrawal is going to be tough for most players, especially as the minimum withdrawal for the site is also £20. Things could be made a little fairer for players.

VIP Programme

Dream Bingo’s loyalty system appears to be quite rewarding at first, but it’s actually extremely tough on players. Players accrue loyalty points as they play at Dream Bingo, and can then spend those points on bonuses.

The problem is that these points are very hard to earn. To earn one point, players need to wager £10 on most of the site’s games (earning a point on some casino games requires even more money to be wagered). Once the player has 1,000 points, they can claim a £10 bonus, meaning you need to wager £10,000 to claim a £10 bonus.

To soften this blow, players can move through Dream’s tier system. As you climb, you receive a % boost to all loyalty points you earn, but again, moving through the tiers is very costly. To move up to the second tier, a player must wager a minimum of £25,000 in total, for example. Earning a small boost to your loyalty points simply isn’t worth that, especially when it’s only temporary.

At first, Dream Bingo seemed to have a good system in place that rewarded loyal players. On closer inspection, it seems that very few players will benefit from this system, and most will simply ignore it as a result.

conclusion

Dream Bingo is a great looking site, with some good ideas at work. The Dream motif is clear throughout, and strengthens the brand, but other aspects of the site let it down. The VIP Programme is very poor, for example, and there’s a lack of exclusive games/rooms too.

These factors don’t quite turn Dream into a nightmare, but it does lessen the site’s value significantly. If you plan to visit the site, it’s worth taking these into consideration.
