What we recommend instead
Mint Bingo Verdict
Tau Gaming is one of the most successful bingo brand owners that use the Dragonfish bingo platform, and for this reason, we expect that Mint Bingo will attract plenty of curious players.
While it lacks a VIP scheme, it has tons of side games and cheap and free bingo. Plus, the welcome offer gives newcomers the chance to try their luck at bingo, slots, and jackpots.
Design & Usability
Mint Bingo is very much a modern online bingo site that uses a quirky font in its logo and phrases like “lush bingo”.
The colour scheme is a mixture of blues, pinks, reds, and purples so as not to be too feminine or masculine.
You’re invited to “Login” or “Join” by clicking the buttons at the top-right of the homepage, or you can scroll further down to see some of the games that are on offer and the accepted payment methods.
The menu is both brief and neat and it lets you access key pages with a single click of your mouse.
Software & Gameplay
The Dragonfish bingo platform can be found at hundreds of sites, and as it’s designed and supported by 888, you can expect to have a hassle-free and uncomplicated playing experience.
The Cashier allows you to enter bonus codes and deposit/withdrawal amounts, or if you wish to save time, you can click on pre-defined amounts.
Dragonfish also has a good selection of free and cheap games, and an excellent selection of side games.
Technical errors are few and far between, but if you experience any issues, it’s worth consulting the “Technical” section of the Help pages before contacting customer support.
Safety & Security
Mint Bingo is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Government of Gibraltar/Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner.
It is considered “safe and fair” by the independent industry body, eCOGRA, and it also uses SSL encryption to keep your details and transactions from being intercepted.
Payments & Withdrawals
Within the Cashier, you can choose from various banking options using the dropdown menu, and they vary depending on whether you’re trying to make a deposit or a withdrawal. The full range includes Paypal, Visa Debit, Neteller, wire transfer, Paysafecard, and Entropay.
The minimum deposit and withdrawal amounts are both just £5.
It’s good to see that there’s no maximum withdrawal amount unless you’re lucky enough to win an on-site jackpot. However, you’ll need to be a little patient when it comes to cashing-out as there’s a 48-hour enforced delay before withdrawal requests are approved.
Although there’s no live chat support, Mint Bingo (like most Dragonfish bingo sites) has a dedicated chat room called the Help Room where you can privately chat with a member of the support team between 10 AM and 2 AM from Monday to Sunday. The freephone telephone number is manned during the same hours.
You can also send an email/online contact form; however, you may have to wait up to 72 hours for a response.
Bonuses & Promotions
As soon as you’re ready to start funding your account, you can snap up a three-part welcome offer. Deposit £10 or more and access our exclusive offer of £30 bingo bonus, 10 tickets for the Big Bang jackpot game, and 10 free spins.
The wagering requirements for the bingo bonus are just 4x but any free spins winnings must be wagered 40x before you can withdraw them, and they’re also capped at a miserly £2.
There’s no Promotions page, but the Support page indicates that other offers such as free spins and reload bonuses are sent directly to players provided that they opt-in to receive SMS, email, phone or post communications.

Modern bingo brands like Dragonfish tend not to create mobile apps as they’re expensive to design and roll-out, as well as keep up-to-date. So, if you want to play Mint Bingo games on a mobile device, you can visit the site via your web browser. They are fully optimised for both mobile and tablet!
Variety & Originality
Mint Bingo mainly offers 90-ball and 75-ball games in rooms like Bounce’T, 90-s Extreme, and Sunny 90’s. Don’t discount the 52-ball bingo though! The site also has one 5-line bingo room called High Five, free rooms such as Freemium, jackpot games like Late Night Show and The Big £10k, and a dedicated jackpot room called Mystery Jackpots.
You can also go to town with a massive range of side games, slots, and scratch cards, including Dragon’s Luck, Bonanza, Neon Staxx, Cleopatra, and Slingo Berserk.
Loyalty & Rewards
It would appear that Mint Bingo doesn’t have any type of loyalty points scheme or VIP programme which is a shame if you’re hoping to get rewarded for becoming a loyal customer.
