Yay Bingo Review

Yay Bingo was launched in April 2018 as a Dragonfish powered no wagering site from Tau Gaming. A no wagering site means that all your winnings are paid in cash. Tau are the same stable behind similar brands like Quality Bingo, Queen Bee, Bounce and Cracker and are the main group that utilise the Real Money Network. Yay describes itself as "the most vibrant site around for all of your gaming needs". It's certainly very colourful and there are plenty of bingo rooms and slots to enjoy. Additionally there's free bingo and the chance for picking up to 15 free daily spins. So will you be saying "yay" or "nay" to Yay Bingo?

Introducing Yay Bingo

Yay Bingo looks like many of the other Tau Gaming bingo brands. It's homepage is dominated by the welcome offer and large expanses of colour contain information about the bingo rooms and slots that are available. Black and white photos of "players" punctuate the colourful slides at the top of the page. One thing we do like about Yay Bingo is that they do use images of men on their site. Mind, the main guy looks like he's from TOWIE or a similar reality show. We're pretty sure he's not famous but he has one of those faces that looks familiar! Yay is accessible on all devices including mobile, but no app is required.

Yay Bingo Welcome Offer

Registration at Yay Bingo is simple - and first time depositors are welcomed with a typical no wagering bingo brand bonus. Register, login and deposit 10 using the promo code YAY to receive the offer. The bingo tickets are for The Big 10K game - known as The Big Bang - and daily jackpots in the Street Party room. In total you can claim 64 tickets. This compares reasonably well with other brands that are on the same network. On top of the bingo tickets you'll also receive 10 spins on a selected slot game. That slot is usually Fluffy Favourites but the maximum win from the spins is just 1. All wins are paid out in real cash and this carries no wagering terms. Withdrawal terms do apply though.

Yay For Free Bingo

Unfortunately you can't try Yay Bingo for free and without making a deposit. There is a Free4U room which can be found under the 'Free' tab in the lobby area. We think that this game runs daily at 4pm and offers 4 pots but all prizes are paid in cash. However to access this room you need to be a funded player. Once funded though there's no restrictions with respect to getting tickets for the free game. In comparison traditional Dragonfish brands will only let you enjoy a couple of days of no deposit bingo in the Daily Doozey room and to be fair it's not that great, so you're probably not missing anything.

Yay Bingo Rooms

Inside the Yay Bingo lobby you'll be buzzing when you discover the many bingo rooms. The lobby is better than those seen on some other Dragonfish Network brands. Under the bingo tab you'll find Daily Jackpots, 24/7, Specials, VIP and All. The 24/7 tab is where you'll find the main active rooms - High 5, Chatterbox and High 5. Ticket prices are typically 5p or 10p although you can find cheaper and more expensive games. Some jackpot games offer pre-buy. All other rooms are jackpot rooms such as Mystery Jackpots and 100 Spins. Look under the Free section for more free game options for depositors including Freemium, Quids In And Sunday Sizzle. 52 ball bingo is represented by Bingo Roulette and Hit 52.

Featured Slots

Slots are available to play at Queen Bee Bingo but the layout isn't particular great. When we logged in (July 2022) the games were categorised under hot games, new, slots and daily jackpots. There are no tabs for slingo games, megaways or even progressive jackpots. Amongst the featured slots are Bonanza, Reel Rush, Cleopatra, Shaman's Dream, Eye Of Horus, Aloha, Berryburst and Neon Staxx. There are no table games such as blackjack and roulette nor will you find Live Casino games. There are jackpot slots, megaways and slingo options but you'll need to use the search option to locate them. All in all it's very poorly organised!

Yay Bingo Promotions

The big reason to visit Yay Bingo is that they offer daily rewards. To qualify for the free spins you must have deposited a minimum of 5 in the last 30 days AND wagered a minimum of 1 on any games. The spins are granted upon login and are valid until midnight the same day. Because it's a wager free site the spins are granted in real money and are capped based on your player level. As well as spins players can also collect free tickets for selected bingo games. We're not sure whether this rewards programme will be maintained once the forthcoming Gambling Act White Paper is announced.

Our Verdict

In isolation, Yay Bingo is an exciting site that will provide players with a good experience. The no wagering element does seem to becoming a norm for many new bingo sites though, so whilst good it's not as unique as it once was. Back in 2018 we said that "we expect most bingo sites to adopt this approach in the future". However it does seem that this trend has stalled. Yay does lack any kind of uniqueness and this is frustration. The brand has no social media presence nor any promotions that can be dubbed exclusive. Tau continues to push out "no wagering" brands on the Real Money platform but none of them have been developed. Yay has a good name but is never ever going to hit the dizzy heights of Wink and Costa.
