Good Day Bingo is a brand-new venture for Cassava Enterprises Limited, which is well-known in the online bingo industry for creating sites like Rio, Costa, Wish, and City Bingo. Like many of its counterparts, it boasts a wealth of 90-ball and 75-ball games, as well as plenty of slots, scratch cards, and table games. It’s also the first Cassava site we’ve encountered that has live chat support rather than an online Help Room, and its impressive list of promotions ranges from no-deposit bonuses and welcome bonuses to giant jackpot games like The Big £10k and a Free Bingo Lounge. So, will Good Day Bingo make you feel like you’re on top of the world? Find out as our reviewer goes undercover to get the lowdown.
Good Day Bingo certainly doesn’t look like your typical Dragonfish bingo site, which is good. It opts for a blue-and-pink colour scheme to give the site unisex appeal, and features a large rainbow and images of young women laughing, smiling, and giving you the thumbs up while waving large wads of cash.
Right at the top of the website, you’ll find buttons that let you launch the live chat facility, sign-up, and log in, and beneath these, there’s an ad banner which automatically scrolls through five of the latest special offers.
There’s a mini-bingo lobby which provides you with real-time ticket prices, prize values, and start times, a section that displays all of the available video slots, an advert for the mobile site, and a recent winners list.
The main menu is easy to view, and as it’s half the size of most menu systems, it doesn’t get in the way of the rest of the information.
We almost jumped for joy when we spotted the live chat function, as this (as far as we’re aware) is a first for a Cassava Enterprises site. There’s also a toll-free telephone number which is manned 24/7 and an email address.
Considering the newness of the brand, we were hoping to find plenty of exclusive promotions, and there’s both good and bad news to report on this front. The bad news is that about a third of the offers are the same as those found at other Dragonfish sites such as Candis Bingo, including The Big £10k, Zodiac Bingo, Sure Win, and Wow. The remainder, however, are currently unique to Good Day Bingo which is great news for players who like the Cassava/Dragonfish brands but don’t see the point of joining multiple sites on the network if they don’t offer anything out of the ordinary.
There’s a veritable feast of bonuses to enjoy as a new member, starting with a free £10 no-deposit bonus. However, the terms and conditions are misleading as they seem to be the Ts and Cs for the first deposit bonus because they state that you need to deposit £10 to qualify.
With your first three deposits of £10 or more, you get to choose from the following options:
• 1st deposit – 10 free spins and a 500% bingo bonus or 10 free spins and a 100% casino bonus;
• 2nd deposit - 10 free spins and a 400% bingo bonus or 10 free spins and a 50% casino bonus
• 3rd deposit - 10 free spins and a 300% bingo bonus or 10 free spins and a 250% casino bonus
The maximum bonus you can claim with each offer is £100, and the wagering requirements for the bonus are 4x bingo or 45x casino bonus while any winnings you receive from your free spins must be played through eighty times.
The remaining promotions feature a £2 bonus offer for players who ‘like’ Good Day Bingo on Facebook, a Free Bingo Lounge, a 200% Bingo Booster, and a 10% Casino Cashback offer.
Like all Cassava Enterprises online bingo sites, Good Day runs on Dragonfish software. The Dragonfish software is extremely user-friendly, plus it’s fast and reliable. The cashier system is easy to use and you can chat to your fellow players in the chat host-moderated bingo rooms. You can also enjoy a plethora of side games. The only downside is the lack of bingo variants – you can choose from 90-ball or 75-ball, the latter of which includes a room for five-line games.
Despite the section on the homepage boasting that you can play anytime and anywhere from your mobile or tablet, there’re no further instructions on how to do so. However, if you visit the site using your tablet or mobile web browser, you’ll find that you can log in or sign-up on-the-go and access a great range of games.
Good Day Bingo is licensed and regulated both by the UK Gambling Commission and Gibraltar authorities. The policies regarding fair play, responsible gaming, and privacy are clearly advertised, plus SSL encryption and a secure URL are used to help protect your personal details.
Because Good Day Bingo makes a concerted effort to offer more than just the ‘standard’ promotions found at sites like Candis Bingo, it’s more original than most Cassava Enterprises sites although not in quite the same league as brands like Costa.
There’s an abundance of free bingo and jackpots, although it would be good to see the variants expanded to include more than just 90-ball and 75-ball games.
Good Day caters for the following payment methods: Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, Paypal, Wire Transfer, Neteller, and Cheque. Withdrawals take 48 hours to be processed, which means that it can take between three and ten working days for your funds to reach you depending on your chosen banking method.
Good Day Bingo uses the standard loyalty scheme seen at sites like Peeps, Jingle, and Candis Bingo. It’s comprised of four loyalty levels, and you can move through them by collecting Jewels when making deposits to your account. The number of Jewels you need for each level is stated on the Loyalty page, and the perks are pretty decent and include cashback, free spins, and free entry to the monthly Big £10k jackpot game.
Good Day Bingo gets a thumbs-up from us as it goes above and beyond many of its sister sites by offering some very generous and exclusive promotions. It’s also excellent to see live chat support is available. If any improvements need to be made, a wider range of banking methods and additional bingo variants would be very welcome.
