Like the other online bingo sites that are owned by Tau Gaming, Bingo Besties offers its newest customers £70 of complimentary bingo tickets with their first deposit of £10 or more.
To claim, all you need to do is complete the quick and simple registration form then go to the Banking page and add at least £10 to your account.
In return, you’ll receive £40 of tickets for the 90-ball Big Bang room, £30 of tickets for the 75-ball Street Party room, and 25 free spins to use on Eyecon’s Fluffy Favourites slot.
Current UK laws state that it’s illegal for people under the age of 18 to take part in online gambling at websites such as Bingo Besties. So, if you’re eager to sign up, you’ll need to be at least 18 years of age.
Anyone who attempts to play at the site using a false date of birth can be easily detected using the software’s verification systems. If you’re an adult who wishes to prevent their children accessing online gambling websites, you can get information about useful tools on the Responsible Gaming page.
Even if you’re 18 or over, you will still be vetted when you join as the system verifies your date of birth as well as your name and address. If Bingo Besties is unable to automatically check your identity, you may be asked to provide a copy of your passport/driving license, a recent utility bill, and proof of your payment method.
Site Launch Month and Year
Bingo Besties was launched by Tau Gaming in February 2018.
Bingo Rooms Type
Bingo Besties allows you to play 52-ball, 75-ball, and 90-ball bingo in over 15 rooms such as Wonky, Fun’in 90, Hit 52, Blighty 90, Number 10, and Gobsmacked.
When you visit the lobby, the schedule shows you all of the different game types such as Ace Club, Free, Bingo Roulette, On the Go, and Guaranteed Jackpots. You’ll also see how much money you’ll be playing for, the time left until the next game begins, how much cards cost, and any eligibility criteria (e.g. funded roomies only).
The two main promotions that always run at Bingo Besties are Last Call and Gobsmacked.
- Last Call is an exclusive game that only 75 funded players get to take part in, and the first ones to pre-buy their nightly tickets at 00:30 get to play. Tickets cost 1p each and you can buy up to 96. The prizes are all paid in cash and consist of £50 for the full house, £30 for a two-line win, and £20 for a one-line win.
- Gobsmacked games play in the dedicated Gobsmacked rooms on Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 9 PM. Instead of awarding cash or bonus prizes, Gobsmacked games offer the full house, two-line, one-line, 1TG and 2TG winners free spins.
Loyalty Levels and Benefits
The Friends with Benefits Rewards Club is the name of the loyalty programme that’s used at Bingo Besties and its sister sites (such as Yay Bingo, where it’s called the Ace Club), and every funded player gets to join.
The Friends with Benefits Rewards Club has a total of 15 levels, and the higher your level, the more perks you gain. For example, you get 1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 20, 30, 40 or 50 free spins every day when you’re at Level 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 or 15 respectively.
In addition, you receive between 1 and 30 free bingo cards every day depending on your current loyalty level.
When you achieve Level 5 or above, you start earning up to 10% monthly cashback which is credited to your account as real cash, and at Level 6+, you can begin playing in the VIP rooms while a mystery gift will be coming your back when you reach the highest loyalty level (15).
Parent Software and Partnered Game Developers
888’s Dragonfish software powers Bingo Besties, and Dragonfish sites boast games from other developers such as Scientific Games, NextGen, IGT, NetEnt, Pariplay, Eyecon, and Slingo.
Wagering and Withdrawal
One of the best things about Bingo Besties is that it doesn’t believe in wagering requirements. Therefore, the welcome bonus and any other types of bonuses and free spins offers don’t require you to play through your winnings or deposit before they can be withdrawn.
You can also make deposits and withdrawals of £5 or more through the Cashier, and it takes a maximum of two business days for the team to process withdrawal requests.
Daily jackpot games run at Bingo Besties almost every day of the week. For instance, you can play the £1,500 Tuesday Rocks for just 25p per card and the £600 Monday Chill for only 5p per card.
There’s also a Mystery Jackpots room that keeps the jackpot amount a surprise until the last minute.
If you’re concerned that you may be developing a gambling problem, you can choose to self-exclude, which means that you’ll be unable to access your Bingo Besties until the self-exclusion period ends.
You will also be excluded from playing at any other Dragonfish bingo sites. There is lots of useful information about getting help from external sources such as GAMCARE and GAMSTOP on the Responsible Gaming page as well.
Bingo Besties also encourages you to exercise as much control as you want over your account and, therefore, lets you place limits on how much money you wager and how long you spend online.
As the site’s operator, 888 UK Limited is responsible for ensuring that its brands are properly licensed. If you reside within the UK, you are covered by the Great Britain Gambling Commission, and if you live anywhere else within European where you’re allowed to create an account, the site is licensed and regulated by the Government of Gibraltar and the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner.
Bingo Besties lets you make fee-free deposits and withdrawals of £5 or more using a range of banking options, including Paypal, Paysafecard, Entropay, Wire Transfer, MasterCard, Visa, and Maestro.
