Wink Bingo Review
Wink Bingo made a huge impact on the bingo scene when they launched early in 2008. Using the Dragonfish bingo software they became the flagship of the then Joy of Bingo network which includes Posh, Redbus and Tasty. All sites offered big promotions including the chance to win cars. This group of sites eventually were bought by 888 and joined 888 Ladies Bingo as a new group of sites. So how is Wink getting on over 10 years later? The good news is that they still have top bingo and slots plus actively reward their players with Wink Rewards. Read on to find out more.
Introducing Wink Bingo
The Wink Bingo site is a big, bright and colourful affair. A cartoon style young lady holding a mobile phone and surrounded by coins, bingo balls and tickets dominates proceedings. Featured rooms are highlighted on the homepage alongside the latest promotions. Further down you can find out about Wink Rewards and The Wink Experience. The Wink Blog offers tips and tricks and asks that all important question: Why do Women Love Bingo? Players can enjoy the games on mobile, tablet and desktop. No app is required.
Wink Bingo Welcome Offer
New players to Wink Bingo are welcomed with a free newbies room. No deposit is needed to access this room but access is limited to just three days. There are £300 of cash prizes and loyalty points on offer daily. Withdrawals are possible but wagering requirements need to be satisfied first. First time depositors are welcomed with a 400% bonus - up to a maximum of £100. Register, login and deposit £10 to receive a 200% bingo bonus and 200% games bonus. Wagering terms apply and these include x2 (bingo bonus + deposit) and x50 (games bonus). If you're not a fan of these terms we suggest not using the latter!
Inside the stylish looking Wink Bingo lobby you'll find a series of 90 ball and 75 ball bingo rooms. These include Picture Perfect, High 5, Me Time, Open All Hours, The High Life and Have A Ball. Ticket prices tend to be around 5p or 10p for most games but you can also find penny games on a regular basis. Suits You and Bingo Roulette, both 52 ball games, can be played at Wink but the rooms are hidden from view and can only be seen when you choose "All" in the lobby. Other rooms available are for jackpot games so Made It Monday, Tuesday's Treat, Win It Wednesday and Thankful Thursday are all options.
Wink Bingo Promotions
Slots have also become more prominent at Wink Bingo. There are plenty of games to choose from including Jack's Pot, Fluffy Favourites, Spinata Grande, Sugar Train, Fluffy Too, Mega Fortune, Shaman's Dream, Starburst and Guns N Roses. The revamped Dragonfish lobby means it's easy to access Megaways, top titles, instant wins and jackpot slots. A number of casino games, including Dream Catcher, and video poker games can also be found in the slots section. It should be noted that these are pretty much the same games you can find at Wink Slots, but the latter will offer you no deposit spins when you join as a new player.
One thing that has changed at Wink over the years is the promotions. They've gone from offering big Joy Pot Jackpots and car prizes to smaller jackpot games and offers. This is reflective of much of the online bingo industry rather than just a decline at Wink. Thankfully there are games such the £50 Daily Drop and the £250 Free Sunday game to fill the voids. A lot of Dragonfish bingo sites now no longer offer reload bonuses. However if you use the code SPINS when you deposit £10 or more then you'll be invited to spin The Wink Wheel. Each spin guarantees you either a bingo bonus, games bonus or free slot spins. Wagering terms will apply.
Wink Rewards is another important player promotion. Collect rewards as you play by completing challenges, playing in selected games or just getting lucky and getting a random award. You also get one reward for every £1 wagered on bingo. Rewards can be redeemed in Wink's Shop for tons of different bonuses. For example you can purchase tickets for the 1 Million Rewards room, choose spins on Kitty Payout or opting for a bonus. Wagering terms will apply. For fans of social media, Wink have been active on Facebook and Twitter, but sadly they're no longer active on these channels.
Wink has always been one of our favourite sites. They've re-invented themselves a few times over the years and they have not been afraid to take a few risks - although the Dream Boys phase was a particular low point. These days it's all about the fun. Wink continues to offer a good mix of free games, daily jackpots and decent promotions. In our view they are the flagship site on the Dragonfish platform and should be the one to join over the many others that are available.
