Despite their slightly terrifying Snapchat filter-based graphics, Bingo Besties has caused a storm in the world of online bingo. And for good reason: there are no wagering requirements anywhere on their site, with all winnings paid in cash!
It really does bear repeating: there are no wagering requirements at Bingo Besties. That means there are no impossible hoops to jump through or ridiculous staking objectives put in place before you can get your hands on any payouts. What you win is yours in cold hard cash; it’s as simple as that. Immediately, that puts Bingo Besties in the upper echelons of online bingo operators, with many of their competitors still involved in the archaic practice of clawing back bonus funds via impractical wagering requirements.
But does the rest of their platform live up to the billing? The answer, almost resoundingly, is yes. There’s a stack of bingo games available as well as more than 300 slots to wile away the time before your next round of bingo starts, all backed by helpful customer support and a friendly community that is growing in size by the day.
Software & Usability
The operator behind Bingo Besties, Cassava Entertainment, have opted to use Tau as their network provider. These guys label themselves as the ‘fastest growing iGaming network in the UK’, and while it is hard to quantify such claims it’s fair to say a firm with popular brands to their credit such as SecretSlots, SlotsAngel, ArcadeSpins and BlightyBingo is doing something right.
For their bingo channels Tau opts for Dragonfish software, which is without doubt the finest and most trusted software house in online bingo. It’s a platform that is also used by the global operators such as 888ladies and Wink Bingo, so already Bingo Besties are one step ahead of the curve by implementing Dragonfish into their own build.
Their games are typically some of the most user-friendly around, as well as the most enjoyable to play thanks to their quick loading times and responsive design. And perhaps the most tantalising benefit of all about Dragonfish is that Bingo Besties are part of their network of jackpot prizes, with daily payouts often running into the thousands of pounds.
There are stacks of 75 and 90-ball game variations available at Bingo Besties and it will take quite some time for you to experience them all. These range in price, starting at free games with mini jackpots right through to £1 games with larger prizes on offer. With Dragonfish’s ‘Real Bingo Network’ continuing to grow you can expect more and more progressive jackpot games to be added in the coming months.
Bingo Besties has a number of free rooms, including the ever-popular £1k Mondays where a jackpot of £1,000 has to be won, plus Saucy Sunday, Last Call and many more. Each room has its own unique dynamics and ticket price, so there is sure to be something for players of all tastes and budgets to savour.
It is well worth remembering that the site has more than 300 slots and casino games at its disposal too, including roulette, blackjack, baccarat, Deuces Wild and more. If you're waiting for your next round of bingo to start, this is a fantastic way to pass the time.
All of Bingo Besties’ games are available in instant play mode, thanks to Dragonfish’s software. That means you don’t have to wait around for a game to download or take up lots of space on your computer or phone; just load up the site and away you go!
With a name like Bingo Besties, you’d expect this site to place a strong emphasis on their community. The site was only published in February 2018, so at this early stage in the brand’s development the community isn’t perhaps as active as it is elsewhere. That said, word is starting to spread and already player numbers are on the increase – helped, undoubtedly, by being part of the 888 and Tau network. So you’ll find plenty of like-minded players to chat to, and the moderators can always be relied upon to keep things fun and friendly.
Promotions & Bonuses
New players at Bingo Besties are treated rather well: deposit a minimum of £10 and you will be rewarded with £70 in game tickets and ten free spins on their slots. The free tickets are dished out as 60 tickets for the Street Party room (worth £30) and four Big Bang tickets (worth £40). And remember: any winnings accrued with these promotions are yours to keep with no wagering requirements! There is also the opportunity to win 50 free spins every day with the brand’s VIP programme – cleverly entitled ‘Friends with benefits’. You can really make your gaming pay.
Support & Security
You can contact the customer support team at any time by using the live chat feature on the website; this works without having to close your current game window. Otherwise, there is a UK-based telephone helpline open 09:00-01:00, and emails are answered in rapid fashion. Bingo Besties are licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority. Their site is secured with the latest SSL encryption technologies.
