Cocktail Bingo launched in April 2013 and is part of the Dragonfish network, a collection of sites that share the same player pool, have the same games and the same bonuses. So for the most part, we have pretty much seen it all before. The one thing that sets it apart from the rest is the cool visual designs of the homepage, featuring lots of cocktails and snazzy-looking drinks. There is also a good selection of bingo games, slots and instants win games, as well as great promotions and a rewarding VIP program to boot.
That said, the biggest reason to join is that the site provides a 100% bonus match when you make your first deposit of £5 or more. What’s more, they will also throw in 50 free spins on Fluffy Favourites once you make your first deposit too!
The homepage is a good introduction to the site, with cocktail shakers, bingo balls sliced in half to look like fruit, and cocktail umbrellas for Africa! The look and name probably attract a young and friendly crowd, which is reflected in the engagement of the members and the fun chat hosts – who keep everyone on their toes with the large range of chat games.
But you don’t have to make a deposit, as you can try before you buy in the Free Bingo All Room, which is open 12 hours a day, dishing out free real money cash prizes continuously. There are other free options, but you need to have attained a status level from Loyalty awards before you can play in these games.
Bonuses & Promotions
You won’t get a huge selection of promotions here, and the ones they have are found on all the other Dragonfish sites, but if you’re new to this site you’ll like what you find.
You can get BOGOF and cheap cards in the Happy Hour promo, as well as pub quizzes for bonus points, boost your loyalty points in the 2 Million Race and win huge prizes by participating in the daily jackpot games.
As it was April, there was an Easter promo, and we imagine there’ll be special promotions for all the big events on the calendar – so worth keeping an eye out for those.
Once you’re signed up you become part of the Bingo Friends Forever loyalty scheme where you earn bonus points by depositing, playing, and getting involved with promotions and chat room games, and you can get £10 for every friend you refer that signs up and makes a deposit.
Bingo & Slots Games
Once you’re in the lobby you’ll find all the games going on in the rooms, where there’s a choice of 90 and 75 ball bingo, High 5 Bingo, and there are also Team Bingo tournaments which are fun – and good to get your friends along to play. There are plenty of progressive jackpots and a massive £1 million Coverall, which hasn’t been won yet – so it could be your lucky day!
The Dragonfish bingo rooms are laid out the same, with the card selection done from the left-hand column, with an auto-select option if you prefer, and an advance-buy tab to make sure you don’t miss out. All the details you need to know about the game you’re playing is on the page, with info about jackpots, prizes, stakes, and players, plus a good selection of mini-games to play while you’re waiting for the main event to happen.
If you’re particular about the way things are, you can also adjust sounds, caller styles, and what sort of dabber you use in the tools section – and there’s an option of sending your roomies’ virtual gifts if you so desire! Bingo cards cost from as little as 1p, and you can buy up to a maximum of 24 cards at any one time.
There’s a reasonable selection of slots and other games here, with most of the current favourites like Bejewelled, Fluffy Favourites, Sugar Train, Temple of Isis, and Monopoly, plus Roulette and Blackjack in the table games arena.
The following websites operate using the same Dragonfish gaming software:
Cocktail Bingo has a few things going for it. First of all, it’s a very well designed website that is a joy to use has great navigation and allows you to start playing free bingo games without having to make a deposit. The downside, however, is that the site offers nothing really of unique value. The bingo games range is good, there are plenty of free games to play, but more importantly, the community is engaged, fun, and friendly – so we’ll drink to that!
