Tasty Bingo is a site that combines two popular passions – bingo and food – to serve up a veritable feast of bingo games, slots, instant wins, and progressive jackpot games. There’s also a host of other delectable dishes on the table, including free bingo games for both funded and non-funded members, welcome and reload bonuses, daily sliding jackpot games, seasonal specials, and VIP treats. Knowing that our readers have discerning palates, we set off to find out if Tasty Bingo merits a Michelin star…
Tasty Bingo certainly looks the part with its logo which features a chocolate-dipped strawberry, and all of its promotions using food-themed graphics. The main menu is brief and uses subheadings so as not to overcrowd the page, and it’s all contained within a virtual shop awning. Whichever page you visit, you can always get directly to your account or the lobby via the buttons at the top-right of the screen. We also like that Tasty’s chosen blue, red, and green as its brand colours to give the site a unisex appeal.
The dedicated customer support team operates 24/7, and they’re contacted by telephone, email, and the Live Help Room. Their aim is to get your query solved as quickly as possible, but certain issues may take more time to resolve than others.
Although you won’t find a no-deposit bonus on offer, you can start playing free games straightaway. Just look for the “Free Treats” tab in the lobby as it contains five free rooms. For the first three days after you register, you can play £20 jackpot games every hour in the New Diners Room.
There’s a good incentive to become a funded member of the site. If you deposit £5, you’ll get a 200% bonus along with an extra £10 bonus, which you only need to wager two times before being able to make a withdrawal. Funded players can enjoy games in the Free Treats Room every ten minutes, and roomies who’ve recently deposited can also access the £1,000 Weekly Treat and Tasty Tenner rooms.
Tasty Bingo wants its mobile players to feel at home even when they’re far away, which is why there’s an exclusive room called the £250 Takeaway, which can only be accessed via mobile and tablet devices.
The promotions cover slots, instants, and bingo, and range from £155 Tasty Teasers weekend tournaments and £1,500 Pay Day games to the Cash Fountain Guaranteed Jackpot game, and 50% reload bonuses.
The only thing that leaves an unpleasant taste in our mouths is the Games Bonus, which appears from time to time in various promotions and carries a 50x wagering requirement.
Tasty Bingo uses Dragonfish software, which delivers a reliable and enjoyable playing experience on both desktops and mobiles. The majority of rooms are standalone and have food-related names, but there are also a few that are networked (e.g. Sweet Stack Up) with other Dragonfish sites such as Posh Bingo.
The variants on offer are the standard for bingo sites on the Dragonfish network and include 90-ball, 75-ball, and 5-line.
As the dedicated Mobile page explains, there are four ways to access Tasty Bingo on mobile devices: 1) if you have an Apple device, you can download the Tasty Bingo app; 2) if you own an Android, you can scan the QR code; 3) you can text the number shown to receive a direct link; 4) you can visit Tasty Bingo using your mobile web browser, which is compatible with almost every device.
All of these options give you the same level of access to games and promotions as the desktop site, AND there’s an exclusive and free mobile bingo room to play in. With the addition of responsive design, Tasty's mobile offering would really excel.
Tasty Bingo meets all of our five-star criteria regarding player safety and security. You can find out more about the operator’s Fair Play, Responsible Gaming, and Privacy Polices by looking at the bottom section of any page.
Although Tasty Bingo operates on the Dragonfish network, it boasts an abundance of non-networked promotions and jackpot games. There are five free rooms, an impressive range of traditional and progressive jackpot slots from NetEnt, Random Logic, IGT, Lightning Box Games, and Eyecon, instants, and casino games including Evolution Live Roulette.
Tasty also gets credit for offering five-line bingo in addition to 90-ball and 75-ball, although we’d like to see more five-line games running throughout the day.
Tasty allows you to choose from an extensive range of banking options, including credit card (MasterCard and Visa), debit card (Visa and Maestro), Entropay, Paypal, Paysafecard, and wire transfer. You can deposit up to £1,000 daily and withdraw between £10 and £1,000 daily. The withdrawal processing time is 48 business hours.
Tasty Bingo uses the Joy Gem VIP Club to offers its members a range of rewards through three different VIP levels. Perks included a dedicated account manager, VIP bingo games, access to shows and meet and greets, and more. Alongside the Joy Gem VIP Club sits the operator’s loyalty programme, which awards LPs for ticket purchases and friend referrals, and allows you to claim cashback every Friday.
Seeing as online bingo is all about having fun with like-minded people, we love that Tasty Bingo also tries to appeal to the ‘foodies’ among us. The site even manages to incorporate fine cuisine into its daily games schedule. Keep your eyes peeled for the section called “Today’s Specials” and take your pick of treats such as 2 for 1 Meal offers, the £200 Friday Feast, and double LPs in Cheers. It appears you really can have your cake and eat it at Tasty Bingo as you can take advantage of three days’ free access to bingo games without having to spend a single penny.
