YAY Bingo verdict

Yay Bingo is a Dragonfish-powered website belonging to the Tau Gaming Group, the latter of which also operates sites like Kozmo Bingo, Bingo Besties, and Zinger Bingo. One of the most noteworthy aspects of Yay Bingo is its splendidly generous welcome bonus of 700% that is free from any wagering requirements. With 90-ball, 75-ball, and 5-line bingo games plus over 300 online slots to choose from, a solid rewards programme, and daily free spins for funded players, becoming a member seems like an attractive option. But, following closer inspection, will our intrepid reviewers say “yay or nay” to Yay Bingo?

design & Usability

Neon blue, pink and yellow colours make Yay Bingo look like a bright explosion of graffiti. A photograph slideshow of 20-something males and females indicates that Yay is keen to appeal to both sexes, and attract a slighter younger audience than your average Dragonfish site.

A link to the Help page is provided via a sticky tab on the left-hand side, but unfortunately, you can’t examine the games or promotions in any real detail without signing-up and logging-in.

Yay aims to be “the most vibrant site around for all of your gaming needs”, and on looks alone, it’s a pretty convincing claim. There’s plenty of helpful information as you scroll down the homepage that gives you a brief overview of the rewards programme, game variants, and mobile site.

customer Support

Help is available around-the-clock, seven days a week, 365 days a year via telephone and online contact form. Plus, you can visit the online Help Room to chat directly with an agent instantly. We’d like to see a full chat service made available in future, but going by most Dragonfish bingo brands, we’re guessing that it’s unlikely to happen.

bonuses & Promotions

Despite there being no sign-up (i.e. no-deposit) bonus, the welcome package for first-time depositors is very impressive. You simply sign-up and deposit £10 or more, and in return, you gain £70’s of bingo tickets plus ten free spins. To claim the offer, you must enter the promo code YAY when making your first deposit.

The bingo tickets are split as follows: 4 tickets worth a total of £40 for Big Bang and 60 tickets worth a total of £30 for Street Party while your ten free spins can be used on Fluffy Favourites. Although you can only win a maximum of £1 with your free spins, there’s no cap on how much you can win with your free bingo tickets. Plus, as with all of Yay Bingo’s promotions, there are zero wagering requirements!

Yay Bingo runs daily special offers that let you claim freebies when you make a minimum deposit of £10. For example, when we last visited the site, the current daily deal allowed members to claim 25 free spins up to five times.

software & Gameplay

Yay Bingo operates on 888’s Dragonfish network, which is one of the best types of online bingo software available. The lobby is easy to navigate thanks to the way it’s displayed using tabs such as Guaranteed Jackpots and Free, plus you can view your recent transactions, voucher history, loyalty balance, and more. All of the bingo rooms are shared across Yay’s sister sites like Kozmo Bingo.

device Compatibility

Yay Bingo offers no mobile apps; however, you can still enjoy the majority of its games on the move by logging into your account using your mobile phone or tablet’s web browser.

safety & Security

Yay Bingo is dually licensed and regulated by the Government of Gibraltar and the UK Gambling Commission. Random Number Generator (RNG) software is used to make sure that all games deliver fair outcomes, and SSL encryption protects your personal and financial information. The site also holds the eCOGRA sign of approval.

variety & Originality

Although the number of rooms (N.B. fifteen) is good, there’s nothing unique on offer. This is because the brand’s owner, Tau Gaming, uses the same bingo rooms and slots across all of the sites on its network such as Kozmo Bingo.

You can play 90-ball, 75-ball, and 52-ball games in rooms like Candylicious, Hit 52, Last Call, Number 10, and Blighty 90. There are also five weekly guaranteed jackpot games such as £1k Thursday Groove and £500 Wednesday Chic. The Ace Club loyalty programme allows members on levels six and higher to enjoy extra jackpot games. In addition, there are three free bingo rooms (N.B., two for funded players and one for non-funded players).

Yay Bingo also boasts more than 300 slots and casual games ranging from Fluffy Favourites, Cleopatra, and Twin Spin to Cash Buster, Big Money Slingo, and Foxin’ Wins. Sadly, there are no casino games.

payments & Withdrawals

Various payment methods are available such as Visa, MasterCard, Neteller, Paypal, Paysafecard, Entropay, and Wire Transfer, and both deposits and withdrawals are fee-free. The minimum deposit and withdrawal amount is impressively low (N.B., £5); however, waiting up to eight working days to cash-out may put some potential players off.

VIP Programme

Like its sister sites, Yay Bingo operates a loyalty scheme called the Ace Club. It has fifteen levels, and you become a level one member as soon as you spend your first pound. There are daily login treats such as cashback and daily spins, and the more you play, the more loyalty points you earn. From level two upwards, you get free bingo cards; from level ten, you gain access to Ace Club bingo rooms; from level twelve, you get a VIP manager, and when you reach level fifteen, you receive a VIP gift.

conclusion

Yay Bingo is a good all-rounder that offers three different bingo variants and an impressive selection of slots and casual games. Although it doesn’t boast any exclusive games like brands such as Mecca and Gala Bingo, it does come up trumps with its zero wagering requirements, generous welcome package, and free bingo games for all.
