Although Treasure Bingo only moved to the Ignite Bingo Network in late 2014, it’s actually been on the scene since 2010 when it first launched on the Better Bingo Network, running on Virtue Fusion software. Now that it’s in the Dragonfish fold as part of the Cassava Enterprises (888) family, it not only looks very different, but it also offers players a whole lot more. For example, there’s a no-deposit sign-up bonus, a bundle of unique promotions and jackpot games, free bingo for all, and £10 bonuses for every friend you refer.
Most Cassava bingo sites are created using the standard Dragonfish layout, and then incorporate their own graphics and themes to make them more unique. Treasure Bingo does exactly this, and we have to say that the pirate theme looks amazing, as well as a whole lot of fun.
There’s the Captain and his pirate crew, treasure chests brimming with gold, tropical islands, and a skull and crossbones – and these are just the graphics that feature in the centre of the page. The background surrounding it is incredibly detailed, and consists of a remote island with a fiery volcano, a shipwreck, and cannons. The Captain can be seen at the water’s edge as he gets ready to moor his small sailing boat, and in the sea around him, there’s a message in a bottle, a cute crab, sharks, and bingo balls.
The website is easy to use thanks to the well-thought-out menu bar, login/sign-up box, and adverts that show you the current welcome offers, the slot of the week, today’s big jackpot game, and the latest big winner.
We found the customer service team incredibly helpful and hard-working. However, we can’t give Treasure Bingo full marks as it doesn’t have a live chat facility. It does, however, have a 24/7 Help Room and telephone number, and you can also get in touch by email and expect a response with 24 hours.
You really do get to plunder some great freebies when you sign-up at Treasure Bingo. Firstly, there’s a £5 no-deposit bonus that you can claim by adding valid credit or debit card details on the registration page. Secondly, there’s a trio of bonuses on offer when you become a paying member. Add £5 or more with your first deposit, and you’ll get £500 extra (up to a max of £50). Add £10 to £100 with your second deposit, and you’ll get a 150% bonus (up to a max of £150). Add £10 or more on your third deposit, and you’ll receive 100% extra (up to £100). The wagering requirements for the welcome bonus package are 4x bingo.
One thing that really stands out about Treasure Bingo is its exclusive promotions. About half of the offers are ongoing, such as the weekly Lucky £13k and £5k Big Bang games, both of which you can enter for free if you’re a funded member, and the hourly Gold Quest jackpot games which cost as little as 5p to enter. The other 50% are special monthly promotions where you can sometimes claim mystery reload bonuses, win big cash prizes, or even scoop a holiday.
Treasure Bingo sits on the Dragonfish network, like many of the best bingo sites in the UK, and although it offers exclusive jackpot games and promotions, it offers the three bingo variants (5-line, 75-ball, and 90-ball) that are common to the network.
The playing experience provided by such a reliable and user-friendly platform is extremely good. There are chat rooms, friendly chat hosts, side games, personalisable settings, and more.
Although Treasure doesn’t provide any info about how to play on your mobile or tablet, you can still play both bingo and slots on-the-go by visiting the mobile-optimised website on your mobile web browser.
Because Treasure is tied to the Dragonfish software it uses, you can only choose from three bingo variants. Therefore, we hope that in future, Dragonfish may introduce some more to give players a more varied selection of games. Treasure has exclusive bingo games like Gold Quest and Lucky £13k, and several free rooms where even non-funded roomies can play.
The slots, casino games, and scratch cards are the same as those found at other Cassava sites like Costa Bingo and Dino Bingo, but there’s an impressive range to choose from nonetheless.
It’s frustrating that a site which is operated by an 888-owned company (Cassava Enterprises Limited) limits your choice of banking methods to just MasterCard, Visa, Paysafecard, Maestro, and Bank Transfer. It would be a significant improvement if Paypal, Skrill, Neteller, and Entropay were added.
The cashier system, which runs on Brigend software, is nice and easy to use. The only issues we found were that the minimum withdrawal amount is high in comparison to the minimum deposit amount - £30 versus £5.
Life aboard the pirate ship is rewarding when you’re a funded member, because you’re automatically enrolled in the Diamond Club as soon as you make your first deposit. The VIP scheme has five levels, and the more you deposit over time, the higher up the scheme you move. Each level grants you different privileges such as free entry to jackpot VIP bingo rooms and reload bonuses. Plus, your Diamonds (which are earned every time you wager £1 cash) can be converted into bonuses, game cards, and more by visiting the Diamond Store.
Treasure Bingo has chosen a brilliant theme that’s referenced throughout the site in the names of the promotions, games, and jackpots. It also boasts enticing and unique promotions, and offers generous rewards to members via its refer-a-friend scheme and loyalty programme. However, the main restriction is the lack of modern payment methods which we feel needs attention from the operator ASAP.
